So, what is Sunset Blitz?

Put simply, Sunset Blitz is a speed running tournament meant to test your ability to quickly navigate and complete one of the four disciplines of single ship Alliance: Assault, Defense, Infiltration, and Search & Destroy.  Each team will consist of a single ship comprised of four members.
Your goal is to complete all the chosen discipline of Alliance in the fastest time possible, on the difficulty mode of “Hard”.  Everyone will be allowed no less than one week to practice on that week’s exact chosen discipline and map.

Chosen Game Mode: Search & Destroy
Chosen Map: Drowning Wastes

For this round of Sunset Blitz, each match will have a maximum timer of 10 minutes, with a 3 minute overtime.  Overtime shall only occur if the team has at least cleared wave 4 within the first 10 minutes.  Successful runs that exceed 10 minutes (but within the 3 minute overtime) will be recorded as 10 minutes.  Failed runs will result in a time of 20 minutes.  All matches will be force stopped after the timer has expired.
Each team will have two runs to complete the mission as quickly as possible.  Only the best of the two runs will count.
The best time will be declared the champion of Sunset Blitz 2!

The following questions have been asked.

Question: Can I do my runs on a EU server instead of a US server?
Answer: Yes!  Simply inform me which server you want when I contact you for your runs, and I'll make it happen.

Question: What faction will we face?
Answer: The Mercantile Guild.
