2015 Spring RFO Sign-Up and Running Thread

RFO is back! Welcome to the Travincal RFO, Spring 2015. In this thread players sign-up and talk about RFO related stuff. Anyone can compete, it is not important are you HC, SC player or do you have or don't have trade profile. However if you don't have trade profile, you won't be able to get prize if you win.

What is RFO?

RFO stands for Rune-Find-Olympics. As name states, here we hunt runes, the more the better! For Um+ runes you get points and winner is player who has most points.


When is RFO?

Starts in 25th May at 00:00, ends in 7th June 11:59pm.


Rules and info

1. Area we run is Travincal, in both 1.13 and 1.07 versions. Monsters we kill are known as Council Members: 3 bosses and their 8 minions. Any player setting and run at any way you like.

2. Running time is limited to 20 hours of playing (when you mule to stash or in ATMA/GOMULE, you can pause clock/counter/online stopwatch or whatever you use). However, when you finish your 20 hours of running, you can start a new batch of running which is again limited to 20 hours of playing. There is no limit to how many batches you can run

3. You are not allowed to start a new batch as long as you don't finish full 20 hours of previous one.

4. Each batch is scored individually. Every batch will be included in final scoring.

5. Screenshots of runes are not required, however I assume you will take screenshots of runes for trading purposes anyway + it might be cool to see some epic 1.07 drop.

6. You can combine running of 1.07 and 1.13 Travincal if you want to, but take care where your rune dropped.

7. Cubing runes into higher ones is not allowed. In other words don't cube Pul runes into Um to get score.

8. Please please please don't reveal your qualifiers (Um+ runes) at duration of RFO. You can demotivate and even annoy other contenders. After RFO ends there will be thread about results of RFO and everything you found will be there. You may however talk about non-qualifiers all you want.


Scoring

Scoring is based on rarity of the rune, so don't be surprised if lower level rune brings more points than some higher level rune. To determine points for 1.07 Travincal I used data from ATMA and compared rarity of the runes there with rarity of the runes in 1.13. I took 1.13 Mal worth as 5 points, so scoring of all other runes is based on that.

1.13 Travincal:
Mal 5.0
Um 5.1
Gul 7.1
Ist 7.5
Ohm 10.1
Vex 10.6
Sur 13.7
Lo 15.1
Jah 18.3
Ber 20.5
Cham 27.5

1.07 Travincal:
Um 13.4
Mal 17.8
Ist 26.8
Gul 35.6
Vex 53.4
Ohm 70.6
Lo 106.0
Sur 142.3
Ber 213.4
Jo 284.3
Cham 426.4

All Um+ runes you find will be scored for the final score. So, if you find 10 Um runes in 20 hours of running, your final score will be 10*5.1=51.

Prize
Eternal glory! There might be some symbolic prize as it was the last time.

Lets see how many people are interested in RFO to get it going. If you will run 1.07, please state it when you sign-up.

Send results to Maareek's PM.

I'm in, fits in nicely with my plans. Probably doing both 1.07 and 1.13 trav, assuming I manage to rack the rest of the gear I need for my 1.07 barb.

Hmm, that's about how many hours I have left for my 1.07 99er... maybe I should put it on hold until then? :p

Might as well. I still owe Phar a Ber and I'm getting seriously bored at LK. I doubt I'll put all the 20 hours in, but we'll see.

My char is rather slow compared to yours, so I'm pretty sure I won't win, but I need to run Trav intensively, therefore some external motivation might be useful. Cham is my personal goal, crossed fingers! And thanks Gripph for hosting! :rolleyes:

1.13 SC signup here. Not sure if I will have 20 hours of free running time, but I'll try of course. Personal goal is a Cham to cube up to Zod and create something sick in my 15ed Eth Sup Great Poleaxe. :)

How about some prize for the winner and the runner-ups? I'll go over my stashes to find something godly. Maybe some godly rares/crafts?

I'll join for 1.13 category. For some reason my compy refuses to take screenshots, so I'll take photos of the monitor instead.

I'll give this a try with my frenzybarb. I play 1.13c SC. Unfortunately no 1.07 as it doesn't work with my disk.

Thanks for putting this on again Gripphon. Trav, runes, afterhork, and scoliosis - what's not to love?!

@nulio - you link the hax runewords after RFO, not before.
