The first thing I thought when I saw the special PTS reward of Kai Zykken's MK-85 Log Mount is "we are going to have an awesome racing server event with this" and now the time has come to make that a reality!
This server event will be a series of race courses with prizes for the first 3 winners in each stage so you have plenty of chances to win at being the fastest of the super slow log racers 🐌
I will announce the actual race courses on the day but you can expect at least 5 with two of them being both factions fleets. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
Prizes For Each Race Course
1st place wins 10 million credits
2nd place wins 5 million credits
3rd place wins 3 million credits
How Do You Get The Mount If you played through 10 group activities on the PTS recently you would of received Kai Zykken's MK-85 Log Mount as a reward on the first character you logged into the live server with after patch 6.0 arrived. You can unlock the mount legacy wide via collections for 10CC. Sadly this was a time limited Public Test Server reward so if you didn't get it then you can't join the race itself but you can still come and watch and cheer on your friends.
