Going to watch as much of this as I can. How far can an eight player group go in eight hours though? I guess it's getting quite limited with the "stay in that one game" rule since people aren't getting much in terms of item upgrades, but then again, with eight people monsters are going to die easily.

Looking forward to it! :)

1 summon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????????????????? What is that mean? Only single unit of same type or its allowed a 1 type of summons for example scourges or what? so summoners are fucked. What if that event could be more challenging, if all contenders gets nearly same amount of XP and defeats baal? I want to say it shold be more rewarding for those dudes who wanted to participatе in that event and would watch it. Id like to see a DUEL of all last men standing who survive as a final acord, not for event just for fun. It something rare.

Only one summon is allowed because the idea is to be on *mostly* equal footing and summoners have it ez-mode in hardcore. Also, I wouldn't count on most players making it to 120 and Baal. But either way, PVP doesn't worth on Sigma so theres no way that could happen.

Just an internet connection and browser, each player should just be streaming it. I'm not sure if there are any rules as to which platform, but I'd imagine everyone is going to be on Twitch.

Are Mercenaries allowed? Or do they count as summons?
