Now, some of you might be asking, "What does he mean by "Challenge Mode"?
Even more of you might be wondering "Group Edition"?
Here is the explanation... First, I need some volunteers* willing to dedicate a lot (and I mean a LOT) of time to this venture.
When I get that little pre-requisite, the rules will be as follows**:
1. 6 group members (5 + myself), all playing different classes. (I will be playing a cleric [unless another candidate is a better fit], and would like 1 veno and a tank. The other classes are up for player choice).
2. No smurfing money/gear to the new characters (easiest done by creating a new account).
3. The beginning point will be after we all get to our FB19 (which will be done as a group), and the goal will be somewhere between 80 and 90, to be decided upon by the participants.
4. NO FC, NO CS, NO BH.
5. Purchasing gear is fine, as long as the money is only from that character/other characters in the group.
6. Server will be decided upon by the group, but must take into account the fact that the members of the group will not be accepting any outside help unless further progress is impossible without assistance.
While I know this is very intense, and a HUGE undertaking, I'm hoping there are others in the community who would be willing to join me on this venture.
I am aiming to prove that the game can be fun, and can be accessed by F2P players, as long as they find a solid group to play with.
I'm beginning to accept volunteer PMs now, will send applications to prospective candidates, and then will plan the challenge to begin some time after July 4th.
NOTE: This doesn't HAVE to be an every day thing; in fact, I think it's good to take breaks from a game you've been playing a lot of. Thus, I will not require applicants to promise me that they will be on all the time.
Recommended location for applicants: North America (exceptions can be made if applicants from other countries can meet the requirements for timing).
My intention is to stream the entirety of the challenge, so if I have a night where my internet isn't terrific, the challenge will be suspended until the next time I have the ability to stream.
Please consider being a part of this undertaking, but beware... the challenge will change you, and your perception of our Perfect World...
*Please note that volunteering doesn't necessarily mean that you will be selected. Volunteers will be selected based upon the fulfillment of an application, which will be submitted to each volunteer via a PM.
**Rules subject to addition/revision before the challenge begins.
