“I feel the need, the need for speed” – Remember this iconic quote from Tom Cruise’s first Top Gun movie? Well, we do. And we do feel the need for speed inside the realm too. So we decided to organize a Speedrun Competition on Testing this weekend. Who will be the “Maverick” of RotMG? The competition will start on Friday, the 15th at 15:00 UTC, and finish on Monday, the 18th, at 08:00 UTC.
- We want everyone’s favorite class to be a valid contender – that’s why the rewards for the best will be given to the top three times of each class: a UT of choice for that class along with a skin of choice for that class (except exclusive skins and items that are no longer in the game). Rings are, of course, shared for all classes.
- Aside from those, 25 randomly chosen runners with a time below 220 seconds will receive 1000 gold!
Know the Rules:
- The dungeon that you will solo speedrun will be Puppet Master’s Encore.
- The tournament will take place on the testing server from Friday, the 15th at 15:00 UTC, until Monday, the 18th, at 08:00 UTC. You can submit your entries until Tuesday, the 19th, 12:00 UTC.
- There will be free Apples of Maxing for everyone.
- If you have any exaltations, you must create a new account.
- There will be free keys to Encore for everyone, but you must still open them in your vault.
- Every class is allowed and encouraged to participate in the tournament. Mandatory standard equipment will be provided for free (T12 Weapons, T6 Abilities, T13 Armors, T6 Rings) – you must wear it for your run to be considered valid!
- Pets and swapouts are not allowed.
- Most consumables are allowed, and a box of the allowed consumables will be in the shop. There will be Adventurer’s Belts too!
- You must provide a video recording of your run, along with a timer.
- The recording must start before opening your key. The timer must start at the first action taken in the dungeon (movement or shooting).
- Must not hold input keys upon entering the dungeon.
- The timer stops when you exit the dungeon (you must exit through the Realm portal!)
- You are allowed to post multiple entries, but no more than one per class; however, you can only win once with your best relative time compared to other entries for the class.
- Post your submissions in this reddit thread.
- Your submission must contain your IGN, time, class and a link to the video. Please use the following standard formatting for your submission, with time in minutes, seconds and milliseconds:
Testing IGN: SpeedyBoi
Production IGN: JohnDeca
- Any swearing or disrespectful behavior in chat or voice audio will cause you to be disqualified from the event
- Any violation of the TOS (including, of course, hacking or exploiting) or of the rules above will also result in disqualification.
Have fun and go fast! We’ll see you in Testing.
