Signing Up and Competing

All racer submissions must be in an hour before the race begins to qualify. All racers must be streaming live on Twitch and be willing to submit a VOD. Instructions for enabling Twitch VOD is linked below. The race will take roughly 3 hours. The VOD from the race cast will also be available on Twitch AND YouTube.

Instructions on how to race:

  1. Make sure you’ve downloaded the patch released on Wednesday, May 8th
  2. Select the race in the Optional Challenges section located on the left of the character creation screen
  3. Select your class
  4. Enter your character name [important: name your character after your Twitch channel]
  5. When it’s race time press start and get to level 65 as fast as possible without dying!

Name your character after your twitch channel so it’s easy to connect and verify.

This is a race from the beginning of the game to level 65. The first three people to hit level 65 (without cheating) will be declared the winner. If someone in the top three has been found out to have cheated or not followed rules, we will move down to 4th, 5th, etc… All racers must begin at the same time. Even if a racer submits a better time later in the day, it will be discarded.

We will revoke prizes if cheaters are found out down the road.


  • Duping Items

  • Any cheat program used to edit your character

  • Editing registry manually

  • Editing ladder

  • Glitches or bugs that help you get ahead (this is at our discretion)

  • Abuse of any systems otherwise not working as intended

  • Anything else we decide at our discretion

The game is in beta, there will be things that happen, systems that we may not have gotten a chance to update in time for the race. We want the race to reflect theory crafting prowess and gameplay skill above cleverness of breaking our game. Use your best racing spirit when making decisions!
