Default HCE Ironman on Torchlight 2 - Looking for people !

We are a 4 guys who are attempting an Ironman on Torchlight 2, similar to what is described here:
https://www.diablowiki.net/Ironman

We follow these rules
  • We play in Hardcore mode
  • We can't use any item we didn't find ourselves, or get by a quest. This includes : no buying from NPCs, and no buying via pet as well.
  • We can't repeat an area or boss
  • We can't go back to town unless you have to (to complete progress-stopping quests)
  • We allow to come back to the game after a death if it's early enough (so before entering Temple Steppes basically). After that, if one dies, the others have to keep going (we'll restart if there's only one of us left).

I guess the only exception we can have is for the enchanters you find in dungeons.
Of course, the difficulty is Elite.

This is our party :
  • Autentist (ekuznetsov) as Engineer
  • potterman28wxcv as Embermage
  • rivolf as Berzerker
  • yourfavcolour (norf norf) as Outlander

You're all dead before level 20.

I mean, seriously, balance on elite is shit and everyone playing on elite just use the most cheesiest stuff possible to have a fair chance. And you're just denying it (shopping for +Health items, farming Grell's Eyes). I remember someone did a similar challenge before solo, died at level 17.

Best lineup is Engineer(support)-Outlander(DPS,Support)-Embermage(DPS)-Embermage(DPS).

Yes one of us can stream. Or at least he said so.

I will at least record it locally on my end and then put it on Youtube.

Yes I agree that in solo it's close to impossible. But as we (will be) a team of 4, I think we can make it at least past Act 1. Luminous Area is where we will truly suffer imo. Or before that if we're not careful.

I used to be able to complete NG0 in such setting, but haven't logged into TL2 for many years.

I remember hosting Ironman Tournaments for Diablo 2 back in the day for D2JSP.

Everyone submits an entry fee (usually Forum Gold or good item/rune)
One high level host
Seven new characters in HC mode
Everyone leaves town and cannot return until they hit level 8 (pvp requirement) and they can only use what they find
Once you're level 8, you immediately TP back to town and wait for the rest.
When everyone is level 8, everyone goes hostile, goes outside, and initiates a free-for-all. Last man standing gets the pot.

They became so popular that I had to have multiple guild leaders act as moderators for various tournaments.

When I read the topic title, I figured Torchlight 2 had some sort of pvp mode and you were looking to start something like this. Would be fun for Grim Dawn as well, but I'm afraid certain elements (looking at you poison) are too OP in the early levels and it would just devolve into an acid-slinging contest.

Torchlight 2 does have a PVP mode but it's really unbalanced, like completely. Also, you know the locations of everyone on the map

Excellent, thanks.

Actually, I would really like to play with you, but unfortunately, I can manage LAN only, so no luck for me. I will definitely watch, though. Cheers, dude.
