One life to live: Prize for your Demise

Season 2 is only a matter of hours away. New characters are about to be born and in Hardcore it’s only a matter of time before they are taken away. As I mentioned in my last column, it’s with season two that we have a contest to coincide with your untimely departure from Sanctuary. For the next 6 weeks we’ll be giving out limited edition Goblin Posters to those who meet their fate in HC.

In order to eligible you must tweet a screenshot of your death to @diabloincgamers using the hashtag #prizefordemise. Winners will be chosen at random. Each week(Until we run out) a winner will be selected and notified.

The contest is open to US residents only. Death screenshots should be from Season 2 hardcore characters only.

In order to help your chances on the contest I pose this challenge to you all. This season let’s play risky. With all of various new ancient items and powerful sets, death is a bit more avoidable. So I pose this challenge: no life saving passives. No spirit vessel; no Near death experience; No unstable anomaly;No Indestructible. Now I’m not saying just play DH, Wizard and Barb but take your normal experience and add a bit more danger in it. Take away the safety net, throw caution to the wind, let your heart beat a bit faster knowing that health pool truly is finite. At the best you get a more rewarding experience and at the worst a chance at a poster!

  1. I’ll see you in hell… With my goblin poster!!!

    Excited for season 2, but I work sooo I might not be levelling as fast. I’ll try and get some play time in though. What’s the exact start time?

  2. Season 2 will be starting shortly after at the following dates and times for each region:

    North America: Friday, February 13 @ 6:00 p.m. PST
    Europe: Friday, February 13 @ 6:00 p.m. CET
    Asia: Friday, February 13 @ 6:00 p.m. KST

  3. WOW!!! Awesome, I would’ve thought they’d do like midnight EST or midnight PST… That works out, maybe I can hit 70 before work 🙂

  4. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw why you no shipping Europe me wants dieing so badly for gobs *sobs*

    A shame really, and I was just like w00t because I don't use (and never have) Twitter&co. so I couldn't participate then anyhow.

    But I am up for the safety net-less playstyle.
    Better have a towel ready, sweaty hands!

  5. Already died twice…… First at level 16, got surrounded in a rift by massive elite trees, so surrounded I couldn’t charge out.

    THEN…. Level 4 I got waller and surrounded in a rift…

    I took a pic of the level 4 one, but it’s so dumb I don’t wanna show it.

  6. BLAST!!!!

    I thought I had managed to avoid this after the first two low level ones…

    Horde – Arcane – Vortex…. = dead level 53… went from 0 arcane beams to 9 instantly, then as I ran away ohhhh no I don’t… I feel like this was definitely worth the posting, glad I got the screenshot of all the beams near my body.

    Tweeted it… then checked #prizefordemise
    how… friggin… sad….

    Oh well I’ve got some legendaries to go back to, but just lost the -14lvl 2h I crafted.
