    Welcome to the 2015 Summer MFO! It's that time of the year where everybody gets craz...ier about D2!

    Prepare your characters, your mind and get hyped for the biggest SPF event of 2015!

    Start time: September 4th 2015, 00:00 local time
    End time: September 13th 2015, 11:59 PM local time


    Total time - 10 days.


    The last MFO competitions were hosted by Fabian and I'll just shamefully copy most of his text. If I forgot something let me know.


    Quick Intro

    For those new to the MFO, the basic jist of it is everyone picks one of 3 targets and runs that target like mad for about a week. At the end, everyone scores their finds (updated scoresheets below) and adds up the top five finds. The players with the top scores win and they get to claim a few items from the other participants as prizes.

    No proxy signups, you may only signup yourself.

    The Categories

    - Hell Baal
    - Pindle+: Pindleskin (or Shenk, Eldritch, Thresh or Sharptooth).
    - Level 85 Areas



    - In the interest of sportsmanship, please PM regular updates of your progress during the MFing week to your supervisor. These should be in the same format as your final results email (no ATMA readouts at this time), like this:

    Title: SPF - MFO results
    Forum name: nulio

    Level 85 Areas
    Asteron's Iron Ward 27.8
    Ravenlore 14.6
    Crown of Ages 10.7
    Windforce 9.3
    Windforce 9.3 (example of a duplicate find)
    Total 71.7


    I will need 3 category supervisors (one for each area), preferably someone who has participated in a previous MFO and will participate in this one.


    Things to include in your PM (Progress and final upates):
    - Title should contain MFO
    - Your forum name
    - The category and your top 5 items for each category you entered


    - If you quit or drop out, please send your area supervisor a PM saying so.

    PMyour score and ATMA/GoMule readouts of your top 5 to your area's supervisor within 12 hours after the end of the MFO. There's always a few people who take a long time to do it, and it holds everything up. This time, please send the results in quickly, so the area supervisors can finish their lists and send them to me quickly, so I can put up the Results Thread quickly. When you finish running, please send the results right away. It takes literally less than 2 minutes to fire off your Final Update email, and it keeps all of us from waiting a day or longer for the results.[/highlight]


    I'd like to receive updates from:
    - The first three days (Friday and weekend) until the end of Monday, September 7th
    - The first seven days (until 11:59 PM of Thursday) until the end of Friday, September 11th
    - Final score as soon as you can, please just send it when you finish playing for the MFO




    Participants

    The list of entered participants will follow.

    If you're entered, try to do your best.

    And if you don't think that you're capable of giving up a Windforce or a Stormlash if you find one and lose, this probably isn't for you.

    Allowed mods: any SPF FAM mod and any version 1.11 or later.

    Since items are switching back and forth, you must have a current trading profile over on the SP Trading Forum.

    Also, if you've been banned from trading and/or mp'ing then you will not be allowed to participate in the MFO. This will be enforced.


    Eligible finds

    The following monsters are the only ones whose drops will be considered
    in each category:

    - Hell Baal: Baal and his 5 minion packs.
    - Pindle+: The mentioned SuperUniques and their Minions, in the cases of Eldritch, Pindle and Sharptooth.
    - Level 85 areas: The Mausoleum, The Pit, Maggot Lair lvl 3, Ancient Tunnels, Kurast Sewers lvl 2, Forgotten Temple, Ruined Fane, Disused Reliquary, River of Flame, Chaos Sanctuary (not including seal boss packs and Diablo), Worldstone Keep, Throne of Destruction (not including minion waves)

    Drops from all other sources will not count. This includes Prowling Dead in Pindle's Garden, Chests in the Pits/Ancient Tunnels, etc.

    Summary of rules:

    -All intending participants must register the categories they wish to
    compete in. No late entries will be accepted.

    -The winning player shall be determined by the five highest-ranked
    items they find during the week.

    -In case of 2 players tying with the same score, the winner shall be
    decided by adding in the score of the next rarest item each of them
    found, then the next and so on until a clear winner is decided.

    -Remember to keep eligible finds separate from the rest of your gear.


    Prize distribution

    1st Place - picks 4 items from ANY other entrants (max 1 per entrant).
    2nd Place - picks 3 items from ANY other entrants ranked below you (max
    1 per entrant)
    3rd place - picks 2 items from ANY other entrants ranked below you (max
    1 per entrant)
    There's a maximum of 2 items taken from each entrant per category.

    I will add my own "good sportsmanship" suggestions. I won't enforce these but any reasonable person shouldn't have any problem following these.

    1. Don't claim items for their trade value, claim items you want to use or as a trophy
    2. If you want a trophy, please be considerate (i.e. no grailers)
    3. if you claim an item and the player really wants it, give them a chance to trade back their self found item for a similar or better one or other item as you see fit.
    4. If someone is claiming one of your items, you may personalize it before giving it to them.

    Scoring

    The system is based on the relative rarity compared to the IK
    Stonecrusher, the most common elite set or unique.

    Here are the score sheets (lvl 85 for both AT and other lvl 85 areas)

    Baal
    lvl 85 Areas
    Act 5 SUs


    I created an excel file that can help you several things:
    1. 'Tables' sheet has all the scores
    2. 'Point Calculator' sheet allows you to list all your finds and calculates your score
    a) You have to indicate the category
    b) If you are playing more than one category, duplicate the sheet
    c) To allow automatic timestamping you need to turn the iterative calculation (File > Options > Formulas > Enable iterative calculation). If you don't want it just delete the column
    d) To allow auto completion of cells you need to turn it on (File > Options > Advanced > Enable AutoComplete For Cell Values).
    3. 'Rankings' sheet can help supervisors... supervise


    If you have any questions or comments, you can ask in this thread or you can PM me.

    So third most important event is here (after pvp week and RFO ofc). OP! I'm looking for a perfect Griffon's. GL me. There is a chance I might enter second category too, depending on how people distribute themselves. Also I'm stating availability for teams, if there will be anything like that.

    I uploaded an excel file that does lots of things MFO related. If somebody wants to check/test it, I edited it in the first post.

    I am sure as soon as these dates are set work will send me on a trip or the wife will somehow waste my time during that week. Regardless, looking forward to it and need to get a character ready to roll! I just got my hammerdin to chaos, but I that is bad for mfing. I could do pit necro instead, hmm. I think I did blizz sorc in AT last two times, so I am going to do something different this time.

    @thefranklin please use the last table in order to not remove other members that signed up. And don't forget the trade tags and link to profile. Cheers

    I'll be away from forums almost until the beginning of the MFO. You can add me to whatever team that wants me/needs one player, if there's gonna be any.

    Hope to see many participants when I'm back :)

    I now have a level 20 sorceress, so beware, I'm coming for you all!

    Will probably play AT, but could do Pindle.

    I will set up a trade profile and sign up officially once I get my internet working again.

    It does looks very tempting to participate although I reckon with my luck I will probably end up having to handover that elusive deaths fathom.
    On the other hand I do have two weeks off from work during the MFO, but with a newborn baby it might prove difficult. Still, plenty of nightly hours :).

    I'll consider and decide at the last moment, but I'll start looking for a nice map for my AT sorceress.

    Added myself to a85 for now; I may decide to change as we get closer to MFO. Also available for teams! You know you all want me. It's more fun when you have someone to share your special drops with, otherwise you have to wait a week or whatever and it gets old.

    Also, if Baal/Pindle don't get more, could we do something like 2 man teams combined score for a85? Seems a shame to kill the team aspect just because everyone wants to run the place where Tyrael's is most likely to drop. :cool:

    Last year there was only Areas Level 85 category because no one signed up for Pindle and there were only 3 people running Baal, so those categories were removed. But now we have new MFO master so anything is possible!

    Oh the time flies. We're really close to the start.

    To spam those that showed interest in MFO in other thread but didn't signed up yet:
    @srrw @queenEm @Saluki

    Mister keg is just waiting for his internet:
    @kestegs

    These monsters I'm spamming to make them join. If all three promise to do at least 20h I'll join also and run CS with a Paladin:
    @Fabian @frozzzen @maareek


    About what to do regarding the Pindle and Baal categories, I'll decide one of two things:
    - Allow such categories with small number of runners, like in the Summer 2013 MFO, but maybe only allow looting if they have five or more participants. So these became keeping part of the tradition but are no real competition. If they want competition should move to A85
    - Do like in the Summer 2014 MFO, remove such categories

    Opinions?
