Theorycraft thursday's: Only softcore??

I noticed that only softcore theorycrafts were accepted here... Does that mean that I shouldn't even submit mine since i play hardcore?
Thanks ~

I take it you haven't actually looked at the guidelines for it, heres a little snip from it.

Build Information:

Name of your build:
Preferred game mode (Normal or Hardcore):
Preferred difficulty level:
List of skills, runes, and passives you use:
Link to your build using the Skill Calculator:

i have read them, but everytime they stream they talk about how they don't like hardcore, or at least travis day mentions it everytime.. SO is this a waste of time since every build they do has been on softcore and they stream every build?

The build we featured in the last livestream was submitted and originally run by a Hardcore player (Leviathan on his Zoosader). We played on softcore during the stream for a number of reasons, including that Leviathan's original Hardcore Crusader had died and that not everyone else had appropriate Hardcore characters to play. Normal mode is also a little more accommodating for streaming, especially for cases where I get distracted by chat or moderation needs and wind up dying horribly to my own avatar. :P

That doesn't make Hardcore builds unwanted - they are certainly more than welcome. We review a huge amount and variety of builds, and an overwhelming number of what we've received have been from softcore players. I'd be happy to see more Hardcore variety in my inbox, but beyond encouraging you all to submit them, it's a little outside my control. So if you have a Hardcore build, please send it in! I look forward to checking it out. :)

Headlined builds tend to be in T2-3. It's Casualcraft Thursday.

because they don't want to livestream an HC character because streaming can cause too many distractions, possibilities for connectivityissues. I'm sure they will or have streamed HC builds, but streamed them in SC just for the sake of the stream.

So the guy made a build and died with it.

Must have been a really amazing build.

Of course it's Softcore. Could you imagine the drama if the CM died with someone else's character?

Cause in T6 it's all the same junk, for solo it's double unity/undying follower. Build variety Thursday would be a more appropriate name.

No one wants to see regurgitated Rimeheart/Furnace EP monks, M6 Sentry DHs, etc.

He talked about his death... needless to say, he forgot he had his Nemesis Bracers equipped while in a pack fight, and went for a power pylon...

While the general public may think all hardcore characters do is stack toughness, you are horribly incorrect kind sir.
