On Wednesday - May 16th 2012 @ 2 PM EST - I will start streaming a streaming a Hardcore Barbarian starting at level 1. Here is how this stream will work, I will be playing him for about 5-6 hours starting the first day, and try to get at least 5 levels a day +/- here and there. This is NOT a marathon run, or a race to 60.
Stream Link - www.twitch.tv/northgore (Ignore current videos, they were just made for testing stream quality purposes)
This is just for pure entertainment, I know most people will probably will already be playing the game themselves anyway. However, those who don't mind watching others play, or cannot get their hands on the game due to certain circumstances, can hope in on my twitch.tv channel, and enjoy the play.
I am pretty skilled, I am a hardcore gamer myself, I like achievements, and I play to win. If you enjoy watching skilled people play, or just like watching stuff in general, then your welcome to join in and have fun.
If you guys will enjoy the stream, and depending on how much publicity I get, I will start taking requests from people if they want me to do something in particular. Such as play a certain act without any gear on, no potions on normal difficulty.
I can start a new barbarian, or a different class on HC and play without armor/gear if someone wants to see me getting pushed to my maximum limits,.However I am keeping my 1st barbarian as my main HC that I will try to get to 60 throughout entire different sessions of streams. I'll make a new barbarian or someone else for certain requests for HC.
Please remember that this is for pure entertainment, and fun. I am not racing or trying to beat someone else to 1st 60 HC, or Inferno or anything like that. This is more relaxed, but yet still tense and challenging fun for everyone to watch.
Every Friday I will be doing Crafting Sessions (Once both of my SC/HC characters are 60) for my stream users both on HC, and SC (30 minutes for each, total of 1 hour) Stream participants have a chance at winning either HC, or SC items (You can only get up to 3 items per week)
Here are the Rules for "Crafting Sessions"
1 - In order to be eligible to participate in crafting sessions you must PM in stream chat that you want to join my party and have a chance at winning an item
2 - Only up to 3 people can join obviously, it's 1st come 1st serve, so I will look at time stamps who PM's me first in the stream chat.
3 - Those who didn't manage to get in my party for participating in the Crafting Sessions, will have to just have to watch the stream, and see what happens if they're interested. (They can still have a chance at getting at the HC Crafting Sessions if they want after)
4 - You can only pick HC or SC, you cannot participate in both, so choose wisely, on what you want for the week.
5 - You cannot ask for items that for your "Future" characters, only current ones.
6 - You can only win up to 3 items per week.
Here are the Free/Buy Rules for SC "Crafting Sessions"
1 - Items that are level 30 or below will be given away for Free
2 - Items that are level 31 or above will cost gold (I will check the Gold Auction house, to make sure to give you the cheapest price possible)
Here are the Free/Buy Rules for HC "Crafting Sessions"
1 - Items that are level 15 or below will be given away for Free
2 - Items that are level 16 or above will cost gold (I will check the Gold Auction house, to make sure to give you the cheapest price possible)
That's it for "Crafting Sessions" if you have any suggestions on how it should be ran or you see something I can make better please post a constructive criticism below if you wish.
After I will finish getting my HC Barbarian to 60 (if I will make it that is, and you can watch the entire process) I will take any type of requests for future streams if people want me to do something. Here is a list of a few of that I do NOT mind doing.
1 - Playing any class from level 1 on HC to 60 (Hopefully not dying lol)
2 - Hell Farm Runs (Show good farming spots for Hell Difficulty, will equip MF/GF Gear, and let's see how lucky we can get!)
1 - Doing any class without Pots/Gear throughout the entire game on from Normal to Hell - (With least deaths possible, or none! Softcore Only)
2 - Playing a pet-less Witch Doctor, Melee Wizard/Demon Hunter - (Obviously specific builds, I will make the build in front of you and explain what my strategy is in the stream as we venture on our special challenge )
3 - Achievement Guides - Explaining, and showing how to get something in particular, you can either request the achievement, or I will just pick at random myself (If I already have the achievement, I can still do it again to show you how I got something, NOT doing self-explanatory achievements such as "Get a character to level 60" lol)
4 - Hell Farm Runs (Show good farming spots for Hell Difficulty, will equip MF/GF Gear, and let's see how lucky we can get!)
5 - Inferno Run (With any Class (Planning on having all 60s for each class eventually)
Alright guys, let me know who is interested =D I am looking forward to spending time with the community come May 16th!
