On Friday, September 27th, 2019 at 10:00pm EST the Black Waltz Free Company invites you to join us in the return of the Jenova Eorzean Circuit foot race where you can compete head-to-head against your fellow Jenovians in a race to the finish line!
This will be no easy feat to accomplish! Participants must enter the race on a job that is below level 10. If that seems a little too easy, you’ve thought correctly! The race will take place in high-level areas within the Heavensward Expansion where enemies could easily knock you out of the race. If you thought speed was your strength - you must also consider stealth and caution in order to avoid enemies! Additionally, due to popular demand, we have returned to our classic rules for this event!
Race courses will be announced on the day of the event. Each course will have a checkpoint that each team must pass before proceeding to the finish line (a volunteer, non-racing participant will be at the checkpoint to ensure each team passes by).
Each racer will be paired up with a high-level healer or RDM who will be able to bring them back into the race using Raise, Resurrection, Verraise or Ascend. Please note that these spells must be slow-cast and use of Swiftcast or Dualcast are forbidden. In addition, these partners may not pass their racers in the field and raise them ahead of where they died. Raise spells must be cast on the body of the fallen racer. Lastly, regens or any other skill the re-directs aggro or enmity from a racer to their healing partner are not allowed.
If you are in the lead and die from an enemy, you may still have a chance - your partner will be running alongside to raise you. There will be five race tracks announced prior to the event start time in the Black Waltz Free Company Discord.
The first-place team of each race will receive 20 points per race. The second-place will receive 15 points per race, and the third-place team will receive 10 points. All other teams will receive 5 points. The team with the highest score at the end of the five races will win the grand prize!
Grand Prize: Mogstation Mount and 5,000,000 gil (each).
2nd Place: 2,000,000 gil (each).
3rd Place: 750,000 gil (each).
All Participants: 100,000 gil (each)
If you would like to participate, please sign up by letting Istari Xiomar know in-game or via Discord (IstariX#1523). If you don’t have a job below level 5, you can still participate as a raising partner! Or, if neither of these are for you and you still want to volunteer to help, we need referees to ensure players are abiding by the rules! If you would like to participate in any way mentioned, you will be given access to the Black Waltz Free Company Discord server to see the race tracks, which will be released the day of the race!
**Note: Due to latency, the winner(s) are determined by which team crosses the finish line on my screen first - races will be recorded for any disputes. In addition, the sole purpose of a raiser is to bring racers back from the dead - they are not allowed to interfere with the race in any manner, including killing enemies before they hit their partners. If you do not have access to Heavensward Zones for this event, we apologize but you will not be able to partake in this event. Don't fret, though! We have many races planned for the future!
