4th Annual HCIM Challenge Recap!


Recommended Posts


For two weeks, from 1 to 14 October,
twenty-six competitors raced on brand-new free-to-play HCIM accounts.

Their goal? To advance as far as possible in a wide variety of categories, all while observing the the restrictions of HCIM mode:
no trading, no Treasure Hunter, and--most importantly--the risk that every move could be their last.

Our clannies not only fearlessly braved the danger, they achieved some pretty incredible feats!!

Before we go any further, let's congratulate our competitors:

Time to honor some truly outstanding, dare I say hardcore, achievements!

Going into the challenge, participants were set a number of possible goals.
Some were one-time, awarded to the person who got there first;
others lasted the whole span of the competition.

Each of the following winners takes home 10m GP for each individual award!
In addition, Funniest RSNFirst Death to Elvarg, Most Boss Kills, and Highest Total XP
will receive special forum siggies, designed by Wizanthony!
Thanks, Ant!! :heart:

No matter what, every participant receives this one,
a token of thanks for joining our challenge, and a way to say, "I was there!"


Now, there was a LOT of carnage this year!
For those poor unfortunate souls who passed on to Death's office too soon,
we offer this consolation:
