Contest is now for top 15 players due to a problem with tracking players by region. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I realize this is a completely optional contest, but I do find it amusing that it is based on grinding in a game that sells itself with slogans like "No grind!".

Well, it isn't really much of any grinding, it is more of just doing pvp and getting exp for it o.O . You don't really have to change anything from when you play the game to "grind," so it isn't really what most people would say is a "grind" I would think.

Hey guys, we've got a few more events planned throughout the month that will allow you to quickly catch up despite not jumping on this as soon as it was announced. We definitely want to keep things a bit more accessible!

Thanks for all the feedback! Stay tuned for news about these other upcoming events!

I knew about this contest was happening, I didn't think much of it. In fact, I didn't care about it one little bit, not until someone said I had made this list (much to my surprise). However, as much as I still don't care about the contest, I have come to decide I don't like it.

First off, this is about earning the MOST exp in a month's time, and while i get the premise behind it, I think the game was in a weak developmental position to be holding such a competition. The problem is, all your big names (with an exception or two) are all level 99 players team stacking and killing fairly new, or inexperienced players and bandying their 'experience'.

For me, this team stacking was always an issue, but is doubly worse now, as all your big names: EDIT <names removed for name and shaming violating. Sorry guys> (I've been known to do it too, I'm sure we all are) are stacking teams so that they can pad their exp to further segregate themselves in order to 'win' this competition. Before, while team stacking was frustrating, people would just eventually leave, or move servers to get away from the pug stomp.

However, this competition seems to have exasperbated the issue, and only intensifies leaving one side to heavily complain or quit and come back when the stompers have dispersed.

While I will in no way say that this competition needs to stop, I would ask that in the future, if a competition of this nature comes back around, that you have it as: "Most exp earned in the month of <xxx> in 3v3 arenas. So that way, the ultra competative people will compete against solely ultra competative people.

My 2 copper, anyways.

Oh, and feel free to eliminate me from the list. I *still* don't care about winning or losing this competition. I never did, I just want to play and enjoy myself. That's what I have been (trying) to do.

Double exp weekend? :o

(Though that might be better as a promotional weekend after more features are in - a Steam free weekend + double exp + sale).

Diamondintherough - You make a completely valid point and I suspect you will see us adjust future events to be more inline with what you've described. We want to reward ALL players, both those who play competitively and those who just want to have fun. Setting up a pubstompfest/grindfest for XP over the course of a month may seem to contradict this, but our objective was more about having multiple events that catered to different types of players (for instance, this DVG killshot contest is something that any player can easily participate in) than one all encompassing event. Regardless, you've brought up a great point and we will continue to fine tune events like this in order to make them more about skill, less about grinding, and most of all, not about pubstomping.

Thanks for sharing your feedback!

Hey there, been playing Forge since December and happened to notice my name in the top 10 of the first rankings with 465350 as of Feb. 7th.

I've only played more since then so it seems I should be more up in the 600k range.

I've taken the alt+Numpad characters out of my Steam profile name jic this is the problem, it's now simply 'holopoint'.

Sincerely,

Yeah I don't really team stack for this contest unless someone else tries to, but I think it is pretty dumb when people do it, it isn't really much in the spirit of this being a contest, more of just who stacks teams harder, or who stoops to the low level of stacking teams just to win unfairly... to be honest, I think anyone who is obviously hardcore team stacking should be disqualified or penalized, I guess a little is okay since it is hard to judge for sure, but sometimes it is very obvious...

Rethink (world first 99/first 99 Assassin) earned 3 million+ exp in 6 days when the game first released. Doesn't look like he's participating in this event though ahaha.
