You have a week to stockpile flares, before we Delve into Path of Exile's new league for 160 STEEM in prizes.

in poecomp •  3 months ago

This amazing game is completely free to download and play on PC.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, do yourself a favour and read on.

This will be our third race, with more than 250 STEEM given away in prizes so far.

Will you join @beercake and @gamingchimp in the hall of heroes?

From 31st August, I'm holding a 3 day race; and I'll be awarding 20 STEEM to the highest ranked character in each class.


There'll be an additional 20 STEEM awarded to the highest level character overall.
If two or more players have evenly leveled characters, the prize will be split evenly.

If a character has died, the level they achieved is irrelevant.
The higher you go, the more you have to lose.
If you're way out in front it may even be worth resting them and starting a backup character.

Click here to sign up and get practicing for the main event.
Take note of your account name and make sure you've unticked the privacy options.
Home tab > My Account > Privacy Settings (on the right hand side of the page)
We need to track your progress publicly. See my account/characters here.

You'll want to create a new character.

Make sure you choose the red, "Hardcore" banner or your char will be softcore; which isn't suitable for grown ups and wins nothing.
Their name should start with "SHR_"

Att: Rule Change;

Characters must also be Solo Self Found.
It's a tick-box in the character selection area.
It prevents a character from interacting with the marketplace, so no buying and selling with other players.

You won't be alone though. There are plenty of things waiting for you down in the mine.

If your character dies, that's obviously a setback, but you can start again with somebody new.
It may seem that others have an unassailable lead, but they can die too.
It's quite possible that a mad dash for the finish line may be the undoing of one or many of your competitors.

If you're equipped to record and/or stream, please do so.

Glorious deaths are bittersweet and better shared.

I've been there. I miss them too.

To enter;

Post your intention to compete, using #poecomp as the first tag.
Tell us about yourself. Are you a grizzled veteran, or an eager newcomer?
Will you be dealing physical damage up close and personal, or raising an army of the dead to fight on your behalf?
Will you lay traps, mines and totems to outwit the enemy, or stick 'em with poisoned arrows from a distance?
Are you going to charge headlong into each level, or take it slow and stay alive?
Will you check the other accounts, and choose an under-represented character, or forge on with your favourite?

I'm expecting some real tragic deaths in the deepest recesses of the game's first ever endless dungeon.

The clock is ticking.

If you weren't afraid of the dark, you will be.

My entry. Looking forward to seeing who all returns and goes at it again!

Well I finally got around to the Tim Tam Slam...

these things are delicious!

I have not played enough to practice, but I have had some practice and I will have to tell the missus I will be going MIA when it arrives and I don't care what she says.


It's 3 days every 3 months. I'm sure she can dig deep and share you with the rest of us :)

Here we go again. That new league seems very unfriendly towards HC characters, one step into the dark too far = RIP.


But stay too close to the light and you miss out on a whole lot of loot.
Yeah it's going to be savage.


Hehe indeed. I wonder how many HC players will even want try it out.

I had an amazing time last time. May all the deaths be sweet tears to fill the winners cup up with!


The sweetest :)

I need to give it a try.


You absolutely do :)

an interesting idea;)
for gamers - just paradise)

are you a developer of this game?


No, just a long term fan.


ahh.. I'm connected with some game developers, so I thought you're from this sphere too)

Not really the game type. Success to all those into games.

When its pen and paper then call on me.

I'm late to the game. I may give this a practice run, but I won't be participating.


It does take up a lot of your time in those 3 days.
Let us know your thoughts on the game and maybe join us next time.
