~Cancelled~ *Afternoon* Raid Racers Competition 180m In Prizes!

I invite you all to take part in our Raid Racers event. Just smash through the set of raids listed below as fast as possible and the 3 teams with the fastest combined times win 😀

Raids
  • TfB SMx8
  • Ravager SMx8
  • ToS SMx8
  • Mystery Raid 😱
Prizes (to share among team-mates)
  • 1st: 80 Million Credits
  • 2nd: 56 Million Credits
  • 3rd: 40 Million Credits
  • Bonus 4m for fastest raid run of the night
I will create a special competition page on the site before the event with video boxes for each of the live streams so the spectators can watch the event in real time. This is the streamer page from our previous contest.

Rules
  • Make your own team of 8 people who you will be with all night
  • You are allowed a 9th as a replacement and they must be a guild member
  • One of you must write a reply with your team name & roster and you must all signup to this event
  • Complete the set of raids listed above on the night as fast as you can
  • Each team must have at least one person live streaming to Twitch
  • Each team will have their own private channel on our teamspeak server
  • Team members, their replacements and myself are the only people allowed in team channels
  • All competitors must be in teamspeak, you don't have to speak but you do have to listen!
  • We will host a spectators event in teamspeak
  • There will be a 5 minute break in between each Raid
  • You can change character/spec whenever you want
  • All characters must be in the guild and guild tags must be visible in the Twitch streams
  • When the final boss of the raid is dead then all 8 team members must write "Done #team-number" in guild chat
  • The in-game chat box MUST NOT be covered up in the stream
  • The teams final raid duration is based on the time of the last confirmation post
  • If your stream cuts off then your group must stop progress until it resumes
  • If you are running with a stealth team then you must all be unstealthed at the start so we can see you in the stream
  • The maximum duration for each raid is the time it takes the first team to complete + 10 minutes
  • Only Stormtroopers and above are allowed to enter this contest
  • We will not wait for late people so pick your team mates wisely!
  • No cheating! If you are unsure if your super secret plan counts then ask me privately
  • Please remember to show dignity with victory and failure
At the start of each raid all team members will enter the instance and once all have confirmed they are past the loading screen I will confirm each team is ready to begin and then do the start countdown in guild chat. The timer ends when you have killed the final boss and all 8 team members have written "Done #team-number" in guild chat.

I'm not on a raid team!
That's totally fine. This is not really aimed at raid teams. They are welcome to enter as a team or to enter as individuals who are members of teams created just for this event. Signup and post a comment with what roles you can handle.

Good luck 😎

Come on people, signup for Raid Racers #2. This one is on the guilds birthday so it's a special deal.
Paluu
Would love to join, but unavailable on sunday...
Mashyk'll
Same, I'm away this weekend
Xyzine

OK so not even enough people for one team so unfortunately this event gets cancelled...again 😓

The raids are easy and the prize pot should be good enough. What am I missing? I like this event but I won't reschedule it until I find out what the problem is.

I'm curious why people are not signing up, please post reasons so I can fix problems.

1) Wrong time slot, between 1pm - 3pm I am most of the time on my way sitting in my car :) (on Sundays)

2) Didn't realize this is a thing until way too late to start asking around. When you created the event I was still a preferred thus I ignored this completely as I wouldn't be able to join at that time.
(generally speaking the weekend slots are usually not working for me, but I am just a single person, also if I got a team goin' I would be able to plan around that)

Mostly the #2, #1 was just a minor issue

Not sure if this will help you, but I'm simply not available this afternoon. It's true however, that since the conquest changes I'm having a hard time getting myself to play SWTOR, besides raiding with my squad. In another words, I'm less inclined to make time for it.

Still, I participated last time this took place and certainly enjoyed it. And it seemed the rest of the team did as well. I also think the price is good enough. So I really don't understand why people wouldn't be interested in this...

3 regulars of Team Sweden was unavailable so we decided to pass this time.

My personal reason for not signing up is the length of the event. Also the mystery raid worries me, because it might be the Iokath op, which I haven't played enough yet, and I don't want to be the person who messes it up for the group. I basically know the mechanics, but can't guarantee to remember it all at the time.

Personally I think it's a combo of things

1) timing isn't great with schools finishing and people going away on holidays there's less people around lately. The heatwave across Europe probably isn't helping either!

2) I think a lot of people would probably like to join but they're just too lazy to actually form a team as they don't want the responsibility of leading. I know if they sign up someone else might pick them for a team or one can be organised.

I really liked the last one, but couldn't join this one as have family over ruining my playing time.

Jawas raiding 3 hours later than this event on sundays. Apart from the possibility of this event taking more than 3 hours still I prefer to take a break in between the event and the raid which is impossible even it finishes on time. And that is something effecting our raid negatively.
