Introduction

  • Welcome to the KeqingMains 40K Lantern Rite Celebration
  • This celebration will take place between April 10th, 2021 to April 17th, 2021. We will begin the celebration by launching a precursor announcement with the time and date for the celebration stream. 
  • There will be many contests, events, and raffles to giveaway $650USD worth of prizes
  • The prizes up for grabs will be 50 x Battle Passes and 30 x Welkins
    • Thank you to our anonymous donor for the Battle Pass donation and thank you to our KQM Patrons for helping sponsor the Welkins

Team System

In order to foster a competitive spirit in this celebrative season of KeqingMains, we are adding a 3-way team competition to the festivities. Every user will have the chance to join 1 of the following 3 teams:

  • Doug’s Dimmadome, led by Cenpi
  • Flat Teyvat Society, led by Fluffy
  • Thunderclap Feet, led by Tuna

Once the festivities begin, a user will not be able to join a new team but they will be able to participate in events still. These teams will earn points through the various events of KQM’s Lantern Rite. They will each have their own Discord channel for the duration of the event and a colored role. The team with the most points at the event will be entered into an exclusive team giveaway and will be able to keep their team role for another month.

What do the team leads do? We are there to inspire our teams, drive participation, and help push our buddies to take our team to first place. The hope with this system is to add another layer to the celebration and encourage more people to participate.
