We're pleased to announce Endless Nights — a series of events cycling through every week of the Open Beta.
The Open Beta itself starts Friday 16th August and the first Endless Night will occur on Monday 19th August (19:00 UTC +2), giving you some time to gear up and get adjusted.
The events will consist of both PvE and PvP components and will provide a great opportunity for players to test the waters, find potential issues, make new friends and win some cool rewards!
The PvE part...
It will also require you to be faster at clearing them than other rival groups. A timer will start ticking from the moment you pull the first pack and stop once the last boss is down.
To allow players to follow their progress we will display top times on our website on the PTR page. Players with the largest total number of speedrun records will be eligible for rewards, regardless of groups.
Only top five players in total will be eligible for rewards.
The PvP part...
...will consist of weekly 2v2 arena micro-seasons. At the beginning of each week (Monday, 4:00AM UTC+2) the ladder will be reset and a new micro-season will begin.
Only one team will be counted as eligible for rewards by achieving the highest rating in each micro-season. The team with most micro-season wins in total will win the rewards. The simplest way to understand it is: achieve the highest rating in a given week, win the most weeks.
You need to stay in the same arena team throughout the entire phase in order to qualify for rewards.
If there is enough interest, the PvP part could become 3v3 arena and the dungeons could be changed to 25-man (T4) raids.
As always we're eager to hear from you and are happy to include any possible improvements you might come up with. We're hoping to see you there!Rewards (per winning player):
- [Contest Winner's Tabard]
- [Riding Turtle]
- 20 coins to use on services after launch
- A secret bonus prize available in the future
All of the rewards will be tied to accounts, which allows you to keep your rewards on the live server.
