Red Bull Announce Their Own Eternal Palace Race Event

Recommended Posts


As expected, after the split with Method, Red Bull have just announced their own streaming event, featuring Crucible of Storms No.1 guild Pieces and Limit who will be heading to the Red Bull Gaming Sphere for some live action.

The Red Bull event will also have other guild streams featured, including a few overlaps from Method's event as well, with Alpha, Ji Tian Hong and Aversion, as well as some additional ones in FatSharkYes, ScrubBusters, Honestly and Exorsus.

The event starts at 4PM (BST) on July 16th with Limit going into the fray on the first, US/OC-only day of the race, with Pieces joining in the next day at 8 AM when the EU servers come up.

You can read more details of the event, including the casting talent, some quotes from both Limit and Pieces and more in the official announcement, and if you're interested in the drama that happened between Method and Red Bull, here's Method GM Sco's side of things.

Good for them, am glad Limit will be streaming, but really bad for the race. Letting redbull just take it over for some of the top guilds is kinda shite. Its going to put a whole new level of stress on some of these guilds and I just dont think putting it in the hands of a corp is the best bet. Blizz really needs to step in on this IMO

You have to keep in mind though that Method have the team and the money behind them to hold the event by themselves. And if anything, "outsourcing" the streaming and everything to a seperate team allows the players to focus more on the game. What I hope is that it gets the guilds more out there, make the RWF more popular, and hopefully they'll gain some good sponsors so they can stay independent.

Method doesn't have rights to RWF anymore than Redbull or any other organization. Just let em race and don't monetize it.


This is Method Corp. vs Redbull Corp.

An interesting turn of events. I am surprised Blizzard still hasn't reacted to this, given that these are literally third parties doing power plays on their game. Their determination at not recognising the World First race throughout the years is astonishing, at least.

      If you have spare Anima, seek out Anima Exchange Specialist To'kul, a new NPC in Oribos that lets you exchange Anima for various goods.
      To'kul sells the following items for Reservoir Anima:
      Korthite Crystal Geode -- contains 5 Korthite Crystal and costs 25,000 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Heavy Callous Hide -- contains 20 Heavy Callous Hide and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Elethium Ore -- contains 20 Elethium Ore and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Lightless Silk -- contains 20 Lightless Silk and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. This NPC must have been added to the game recently. Screenshot courtesy of absolis.

      The World Quest for Fathom Dweller is currently available on US servers. Check out how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering and get the mount!
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      First, you must unlock the quest for it to become visible on the map. Below, we posted all the steps that you need to complete to unlock the quest for the mount.
      First, download a WoW Addon that shows you coordinates to figure out where you are and where you need to be. Something like MapCoords or TomTom will do. Head to Broken Shore 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul. Head to 57/52 and enter the Musty Cave. Click on the Mound of Dirt that is hard to notice. You will receive Weathered Relic. Return to 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul again and go through all his dialog options. Now comes the more difficult part. You must click on 10 Hungering Orbs in the exact order. If another player clicks on them, it takes approximately 20 minutes for them to become clickable again, so they have a cooldown. Here are coords for all the Hungering Orbs: Azsuna: 37/37: The first orb is located in a secret cave behind the tree. Stormheim: 33/75: The second orb is located in a cave where Kangaxx is. Val'sharah 41/80 Find another secret cave located inside a tree. The third orb is guarded by an Elemental.  Broken Shore 31/76: You will find an underwater cave that hides the fourth orb. Azsuna 59/12: Behind the crystals is yet another secret cave. The fifth orb is located on the ground next to a broken table. Stormheim 67/14: Near the underwater shark is a crevice that leads to a cave that contains the sixth orb. Try to avoid the steams, as they deal high damage. This orb may be the most difficult for you to get. Highmountain 52/36: Enter the Haglands and follow the path to your right. Above halfway down (55/36), you want to jump down to a ledge with a cave. Do not enter the first cave since it's a decoy. Instead, turn right and head to the actual cave to find the seventh orb. Azsuna 54/26: Under the bushes near a tree is another secret cave. The eighth orb is somewhat hidden, too, located in a bush near a pillar inside the cave. Broken Isles World Map 50/91: Find underwater wreckage to get through a secret cave. This one is hard to explain, so we advise you to check out MadSeasonShow's video (timestamp). You will find the ninth orb to your right. Broken Shore 37/71: Head back to Drak'thul and click the final orb on the table behind him. After you click it, the DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering World Quest spawns at 46/49 on the Broken Isles World Map. Kill Kosumoth to receive Fathom Dweller. Note that you have a chance to get the Hungering Claw instead of the mount. It just so happens that the reward is the mount right now. Check out the video guide by MadSeasonShow for more details!

      Gitoff speed-cleared Torghast Layer 12 in 2 minutes and 56 seconds.
      While most players focus on getting a Flawless Score in Torghast, Gitoff tried something different and managed to kill the Floor 5 on the highest difficulty under 3 minutes on their Demon Hunter.

      Here's a treat for all you RWF fans, and well, everyone else as well as Echo, the winners of the Sanctum of Domination race, have put together a "cinematic" kill/defeat video, with a cool intro and then regular multi-PoV footage going through the entire fight, the nerdscreams and the real-life footage at their event. There's also a cool thank you list to the many players that helped them with split runs which runs at the end, looks like an Avengers movie CGI artists list, and lasts 6 minutes.

      Congratulations on the World First once again, it truly was one of the better race events so far!

      We have another internal Activision Blizzard letter, as CEO Bobby Kotick sent the following message to all staff, in which he calls the company's initial responses to the lawsuit and employee concerns "tone deaf", explains that a review of internal policies and procedures has been started, as well as enumerates some immediate actions that will be taken.
      SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) CEO Bobby Kotick today sent the following letter to all employees.
      July 27, 2021
      This has been a difficult and upsetting week.
      I want to recognize and thank all those who have come forward in the past and in recent days. I so appreciate your courage. Every voice matters - and we will do a better job of listening now, and in the future.
      Our initial responses to the issues we face together, and to your concerns, were, quite frankly, tone deaf.
      It is imperative that we acknowledge all perspectives and experiences and respect the feelings of those who have been mistreated in any way. I am sorry that we did not provide the right empathy and understanding.
      Many of you have told us that active outreach comes from caring so deeply for the Company. That so many people have reached out and shared thoughts, suggestions, and highlighted opportunities for improvement is a powerful reflection of how you care for our communities of colleagues and players – and for each other. Ensuring that we have a safe and welcoming work environment is my highest priority. The leadership team has heard you loud and clear.
      We are taking swift action to be the compassionate, caring company you came to work for and to ensure a safe environment. There is no place anywhere at our Company for discrimination, harassment, or unequal treatment of any kind.
      We will do everything possible to make sure that together, we improve and build the kind of inclusive workplace that is essential to foster creativity and inspiration.
      I have asked the law firm WilmerHale to conduct a review of our policies and procedures to ensure that we have and maintain best practices to promote a respectful and inclusive workplace. This work will begin immediately. The WilmerHale team will be led by Stephanie Avakian, who is a member of the management team at WilmerHale and was most recently the Director of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement.
      We encourage anyone with an experience you believe violates our policies or in any way made you uncomfortable in the workplace to use any of our many existing channels for reporting or to reach out to Stephanie. She and her team at WilmerHale will be available to speak with you on a confidential basis and can be reached at ATVI@wilmerhale.com or 202-247-2725. Your outreach will be kept confidential. Of course, NO retaliation will be tolerated.
      We are committed to long-lasting change. Effective immediately, we will be taking the following actions:
      Employee Support. We will continue to investigate each and every claim and will not hesitate to take decisive action. To strengthen our capabilities in this area we are adding additional senior staff and other resources to both the Compliance team and the Employee Relations team.
        Listening Sessions. We know many of you have inspired ideas on how to improve our culture. We will be creating safe spaces, moderated by third parties, for you to speak out and share areas for improvement.
        Personnel Changes. We are immediately evaluating managers and leaders across the Company. Anyone found to have impeded the integrity of our processes for evaluating claims and imposing appropriate consequences will be terminated.
        Hiring Practices. Earlier this year I sent an email requiring all hiring managers to ensure they have diverse candidate slates for all open positions. We will be adding compliance resources to ensure that our hiring managers are in fact adhering to this directive.
        In-game Changes. We have heard the input from employee and player communities that some of our in-game content is inappropriate. We are removing that content. Your well-being remains my priority and I will spare no company resource ensuring that our company has the most welcoming, comfortable, and safe culture possible.
      You have my unwavering commitment that we will improve our company together, and we will be the most inspiring, inclusive entertainment company in the world.
      Yours sincerely,
