A new challenge is live in the lobby, and this time, your target is to Dig Away!
A derivative of the Race Away event, your goal is still to get to the highest X coordinate possible in a month. However, this time around, the world is all underground. Giant caverns give you a chance to orient yourself and make some progress more easily, but a fair amount of digging will be expected too! The world being in perpetual darkness, mobs will roam all over constantly.
Merit Points will be given to the top diggers/runners based on their respective, top positions. For example, the last person will get 1 point, next-to-last 2, and so on up to the top runner getting an amount of points equal to the amount of participants. A minimum of 10 points will be offered to the winner.
Dying will return you to the world's spawn point, but won't kick you out entirely as it does for UHC. Due to the difficulty of locating food underground, your hunger will slowly regenerate over time. Please note that the Nether is disabled (no quick travel!), and there's a bedrock layer on top of the world. Going over that top layer (through either glitching or broken world generation) will disqualify you.
Get your best running shoes on, and good luck!
