The light is green; the flag has dropped and the horse has bolted.
A week ago I extended an invitation to join us in a Hardcore Path of Exile race.
Players pick from 7 different character classes, and survive as long and far as they can. If their character is killed he's permanently dead, and the player needs to start over with somebody new.
It's intense, it's gripping and it just got strategic.
See, there's a 20 STEEM prize for the highest level character in each class, and another 20 STEEM for the highest level character overall, for a total of 8 x 20 STEEM prizes.
There's no limit to how many characters each player can have at a time; but with opportunity comes danger.
They need to closely watch each others' accounts to know where best to invest their finite (3 days) time.

This is our smallest field of competitors yet; which should make for some really fascinating decision making.
Any one of them could win big, or get too ambitious and lose entirely.
This is a whole different beast.
When this countdown timer gets to zero, 3 days from now, the race will be over and a new champion will be crowned.

I won't stop you. If I was a nice person, I wouldn't be putting them through this to begin with.
