    Heart, a unit of Meta Alloy, Cyclops Tissue Sample in their cargo hold when they dock at the Eclipse.

  • Must have the clock visisble at the start/finish of the run.

  • The weapons need to be shown at the start so that no ammo synth can be confirmed.

  • Megaship, barnacle or hyperdiction thargoid interactions do not count towards a confirmed kill. It needs to be in a Threat 5 Non-Human Signal Source.

  • The only weapons allowed are Guardian Gauss Cannons, Remote Release Flak Launchers, and a single Size 2 Beam Laser or below.

  • You cannot use premium or standard ammunition or synthesis including synthesizing for heatsinks throughout the time trial.

  • Gibbing is strictly prohibited, this includes use of AX and Advanced Missile Racks. Any attempts of gibbing will void your application.

  • The challenge must be completed start to finish without docking at any station or carrier, until you arrive at the Eclipse at the end of the challenge

  • Pre-scanning the system’s NHSS with your FSS is not allowed.

  • You must record your trial from start to finish without editing and upload it to YouTube. Title should include NEWP/AXI Invitational.

  • The timer starts when you press launch, timer ends when you dock. Good Luck!


SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:

  • If you encounter a "Braben tunnel" (long blue tunnel) during your run, the time from the start of the drop until the start of the re-connected drop will not be counted against you.

  • Hyperdictions will not be eligible for time subtraction. They are an inherent part of AX and will bring with it an aura of mystery and challenge to overcome to get the best time. Hyperdiction instances cannot count towards the objectives.

  • Killing the interceptor should meet the AXI standards. The player must clearly show the interceptor's explosion and the getting the bond. This signifies that the task of killing the interceptor has been met.

  • Deadline of the event will end on Sunday (January 31st @ 23:59:59 UTC). Submissions of your timed trial should be in by Monday (February 1st @ 23:59:59 UTC).

  • A game mechanic bug was found out by a contestant that ramming a barnacle is considered exploitative by nature and will invalidate your timed trial run. For those who are wondering what the bug looks like, here is a video recording of the bug.
