Video Explanation: Here

Grim Dawn League is a community based season driven by a small group of programmers, modders, and enthusiasts, to produce a point based competitive ladder where everyone will start fresh. Similar to PoE leagues or Diablo Ladders. Grim Dawn Season 3 is fully automated and will use our proprietary launcher to track your seasonal progression. Season 3 boasts two ladders (HCSSF and SC-Trade). Players can acquire points for completing feats throughout this season with a bit of emphasis on leveling challenges but also many end-game challenges as well. Season scorecard will be made available on their respective player profile at www.grimleague.com. Top three players in each ladder will receive prizes at the end of the season. The Season 3 mod is very vanilla at heart, however, it introduces some new systems, new end-game bosses, player hubs, custom music, new items, and more.

Just bumping for visibility. League starts tomorrow!

Not sure if the link’s bad or it’s something at my end, but I can’t get the website to load in at all on Firefox or Edge. :woman_shrugging: Anyone else had problems?

Here try this https://www.grimleague.com/

There were some changes made the the URL or something recently so some links posted previously might be dead sadly. I think I fixed it here.

Ah, yes, that work’s Mike. :+1:

Hey, do you have some videos or screenshots showing all new skill effects?
If not can I post them here, blurred with spoiler tags? I’ll be checking them out anyway.

Also, are these items going to be in all Leagues moving forward?

Spoilers!

I really want to start this season but real life hits hard for a long time now :cold_sweat:
If all goes smooth, I hope I can join the league by mid January

I am amazed and impressed by the work you guys put into these leagues. I think Grim Dawn has one of the nicest player communities.

I have a question, though, and I apologize in advance if the answer to that question is already contained in some of the links you provided.

Question: I would love to play the league, and experience the content you’ve added, but my obligations prevent me from that? Is it possible to play this content, in some form or other, at a later time? Maybe as a singleplayer mod? That way, I would miss out on interacting with the community, but I would at leas be able to see the new content firsthand.

Thank you in advance.

As far as I can tell you can just register, download the installer, run it - and it should still function even after the Season ends since except for the extra stuff they baked into the launcher it is otherwise a mod like any other mod. You can play it as-is now even without necessarily having to actively take part in the “season”.

But I think that if you do want to participate fully the game needs to be launched via their custom launcher and then play the mod - since it appears they have made an attempt at implementing “anti-cheat” to try to ensure fairness in the season’s results.

This is awesome.

You can hop in and when the season ends you can still play the mod standalone. If you dont want to play now you can stay tuned. Stan will most likely release a post-season version with some refinements if people still want to play it.
