When 5 Points / 5 average maps worth of points (How the present day 35 points is calculated) was setup as the point threshold for entering Hardcore in 2012, 5 maps was a significant amount of what FFA offered. Now, blue is too easy to earn, does not adequately prepare players for Hardcore, and can be earned entirely on very easy / easy / (a few) novice maps.

With this in mind, the requirements for blue will be rising sharply:

Current requirements enter Hardcore / earn blue rank:
  • Earn 35 points.
  • Complete the FAQ quiz (Required to enter Hardcore, but not for blue).

New Requirements to enter Hardcore / earn blue rank:
  • Increase from 35 to 100 points.
  • New Requirement: beat 5 maps that are of moderate difficulty or higher (FAQ quiz does count for this).
  • FAQ quiz is still required for entering Hardcore.


All players that already have blue rank but do not meet these new requirements will keep their rank. This change is scheduled to be rolled out at the same time as HC 10.0, on Sunday, June 14th.
