Gemstone Prime HARDCORE Seasonal Competition


  • The Obsidian Tower

    Explanation - The concept of a season within HARDCORE is to provide a recurring challenge to see who can advance the furthest from level 0 the fastest in one month’s time. Each season will start at 12:00 AM on the first of the month and ending 11:59 PM on the last day. A new character must be created for each season, though said character can then transition to the standard HARDCORE competition upon the season’s end. Other than the restrictions on when your character is created, all other rules of HARDCORE apply. Your character does not need to survive to the end of the season in order to be eligible to win.

    Entry Rules - Characters made after the 1st of the month and deemed as meeting the standards of the competition will be automatically entered into the competition. The “best effort” will either be the last information I have recorded on the entrant before the deadline, OR a post must be made marking your character’s name and a readout of the EXPERIENCE command to indicate the character fits within the allotted time constraints of the current season. Your post may be made on the Official forums in the HARDCORE folder, or on the PC or EO forums in the appropriate thread. YOUR POST MUST BE MADE NO MORE THAN 24 HOURS AFTER THE END OF THE COMPETITION IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED ELIGIBLE VIA THIS METHOD.

    Winning Entry – The winning entry will be decided by who among the eligible entries with valid submissions has reached the highest level in the allotted time. If two or more contestants are the same level, the entrant with the most experience shall be considered the winner. In the event of a tie, both entries will be awarded first place. The same standard will be used to determined the 2nd place contestant.

    Prizes Pt. 1 – Prizes will be awarded to the winning contestant(s) as so long as there is at least one participant who meets the entrance and submission qualifications listed above. Seasonal prizes are in addition to any standard HARDCORE prizes, meaning the participant will receive the standard 1 million silver reward for reaching level 20 should he or she manage to do so during the course of a season.

    Prizes Pt. 2 – The 1st place contestant of the HARDCORE seasonal contest will receive 4 million silver which will be awarded to a non-HARDCORE character of their choosing and have their efforts recorded on the HARDCORE Leaderboard. The 2nd place finisher will receive 1 million silver which will be awarded to a non-HARDCORE character of their choosing and also have their efforts recorded on the HARDCORE Leaderboard.

    Stipulations – At this time, entrants into the HARDCORE seasonal contest cannot make use of any achievement-based “Unlockables”, or any other starting advantages. This and all other rules are subjection to alteration at any point in the contest. Though highly unlikely, I also reserve the right to disqualify any participant and/or cancel the contest for any reason.

    The Second season is now live from February 1st - 28th.

    We’re a little over halfway in the inaugural HARDCORE Seasonal Contest and i’ve modified the rules a bit, loosening entry requirements to ensure a healthy amount of competitors. Anyone that rolled up a character from 1 January onward has been automatically entered into the contest. Feel free to opt out if you are are not interested in participating.

    Here is the current Seasonal Roster:

    Ainumorco
    Owsom (F2P)
    Eddo
    Rikame
    Dredpok
    Bruzz
    Durie
    Yimo
    Snaze
    Mazakeene (F2P)
    Obingo

    Mazakeene easily leads the field at level 16. As she has died earlier in the month, that will likely remain her high score unless she returns yet again with another of the Maza clan. Hers is an especially impressive feat as she is a Free-to-play character. There is a little over 2 weeks to go, so there’s still plenty of time for current competitors to take the lead, or even a new character to step in and win it all.


  • The Obsidian Tower

    A brief Seasonal contest update as we head into the final stretch. Mazakeene’s level 16 entry still stands as the highest and it’s looking like she may walk away with it.

    New entrants:

    Sindaras
    Maazikeen (F2P)
    Eroland
    Rattas
    Ratsil
    Scurf

    Don’t feel bad. Her new character is already level 8, probably level 9 or even 10 by now. Chick is a machine.

    In order to have your best effort put forward, you have until the end of the day today (11:59 PM EST) to submit a copy of your EXP. If you do not submit a copy, I will use what information I have last recorded for you, which may be highly inaccurate.


  • The Obsidian Tower

    The February 2018 Seasonal Contest has started. Simply roll up a new character in HARDCORE to be eligible.

    Prizes Pt. 2 – The 1st place contestant of the HARDCORE seasonal contest will receive 4 million silver which will be awarded to a non-HARDCORE character of their choosing and have their efforts recorded on the HARDCORE Leaderboard. The 2nd place finisher will receive 1 million silver which will be awarded to a non-HARDCORE character of their choosing and also have their efforts recorded on the HARDCORE Leaderboard.

    That’s very generous of you. I will add him to both rosters.



  • @Evarin

    You are generous with the rewards and I really don’t play non hardcore anymore so that money being used to help for events is what it is all about.


  • The Obsidian Tower

    The Overall leaders appear to be Borrs in first and Borsh in second.

    The F2P leaders are Mazikaene in first, and Egard in second.
