Extra Life 2014 – Raise for Kids! This Weekend!

Extra Life 2014 Main Feature Image

Trion’s Extra Life event this year begins at 8am PDT on Saturday, Oct 25th and ends at 8am PDT on Monday, Oct 27th.

For those who don’t know, Extra Life is a charity event that is held each year where gamers play games for 24hrs to raise money for local kids


Trion Worlds Participation

Trion Worlds has participated in the Extra Life Charity ever since the first year of RIFT’s launch. With each subsequent year they have added their new titles to the list of games participating in the 24hr charity event. This year Trion adds Trove and ArcheAge to the list on top of RIFT and Defiance.

This year, hours will be counted “over several days” from 8am PDT on Saturday, Oct 25th until 8am PDT on Monday, Oct 27th, so you don’t need to play a full 24hrs non-stop.

Livestream

Trion is holding a 24hr livestream with Community Managers playing various Trion and other titles over those 24hrs. You will be able to check them out on their twitter here.

There might be giveaways going on during the livestream

    I’m trying to understand this Extra Life event but I still can’t quite get my head around it.

    Do we each have our own donations page where we collect donations? Are those the donations that count toward milestones?

    If so, I don’t think I really stand a chance to raise that kind of money. And I don’t really want to play 24h for a title either.

    • October 25, 2014 at 12:41 pm #

      Yep. You basically start your own page but link it to the Trion Worlds 2014 team. When you sign-up to Extra Life there should be an option to choose your team. You can also just use the “Join Our Team” link on the Trion Worlds 2014 team page.

      Any amount you donate onto your own fundraising page, or any amount of donations you receive on your fundraising page goes towards the fundraising milestones.

      As for the title, the 24hrs game-time is counted from 8am PDT on 25th Oct until 8am PDT on 27th Oct so you get a 48hr time-frame to get your 24hrs done.
