A tweet posted on the official Diablo Twitter account explained the ‘Diablo 4 Hardcore Victories’ contest, in which players are challenged to take on the game’s Hardcore mode.
In this mode, players who die will immediately have their character erased, meaning they have to start all over again from level 1.
According to Blizzard, the first 1000 players who reach level 100 on Hardcore mode will be eligible to have their name added to a statue of the game’s antagonist Lilith.
Think you can cheat death?
Reach level 100 on hardcore mode and tweet #Diablo4Hardcore with proof to have your username immortalized on a statue of Lilith.
Offer limited to first 1000, restrictions apply: https://t.co/TLWxZwG0aQ
Get started June 1st. pic.twitter.com/pvVLZNPgx8

The contest’s terms and conditions state that any players who reach level 100 have to tweet the @Diablo account using the hashtag #Diablo4Hardcore.
They also have to include their full Battle.net BattleTag, as well as photographic or video proof that they have reached level 100 and have earned the Tempered Champion title in-game for doing so.
Blizzard also notes that the statue may not contain 1000 names when all is said and done.
The competition ends either when 1000 players successfully provide proof, or by the end of September 1, whichever comes first.
As such, if the number of players who manage to complete the challenge by September 1 is lower than 1000, this will presumably be the number of names added to the statue.
