    Welcome to the 2016 Summer MFO! It's already that time of the year where everybody gets.... WHAT!!1!1!!!??? How time flies... Anyway people get crazy, play too much D2 and find sexy stuff. And we all love it!

    Prepare your characters, your mind and get hyped for the biggest SPF event of 2016!

    Start time: July 8th 2016, 00:00 local time
    End time: July 17th 2016, 11:59 PM local time


    Total time - 10 days.


    I'll just shamefully copy most of the text of the previous MFO post. 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 three 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, July 11th
    - The first seven days (until 11:59 PM of Thursday) until the end of Friday, July 15th
    - 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.


    Do not post any qualifiers found during the MFO! Here or in the IFT.

    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 two 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)


    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.

    Damn you guys, pull me out of semi-retirement and drag me back to D2!

    I put my name down in the Pindle category, but I'm happy to go into L85 if there are not enough others.

    Cool !!! Count me in.

    Not sure what the team thingy is all about (even after reading the description in the 2013 Summer MFO thread :oops:). Sounds cool, so I'd like to give it a go, I think, but wouldn't mind someone explaining exactly what it is.

    You run an area as much as you can/want during the tournament and then you take the most rare elite uniques you find and get a "top 5" score for them. Should be a link for the scoring in the first post. If you found 5 Tyrael's Mights, then all 5 would be your top item.

    No no, I meant playing in a team. The concept of an MFO is clear to me :). Although I'd think that you would want to stick to one area / boss to maximize chances. Doesn't signing in on for example Baal and Pindle reduce your chances?

    Derp, misread.

    Ya running multiple categories means less time to boost your score in each. I forget how teams

    Team competition basically works as follows:

    Everyone competes for second place because the As of Yet Unnamed Team is guaranteed first.

    Seriously though, you team up with people from different categories and take the top team member score, in terms of finishing position, from each category and add them together. Or something like that.

    That's clear, thanks. Sounds cool, especially in a team with someone like @Grape . So yeah, I'm in for that. If I can cope with the stress of knowing that I'm not even close to his mf skills ...

    Btw, would that make us 72GrapesOn1?

    I have a question in regards to my plan on running. If I use my summoner necro and raise my army in Pindle's garden, kill Pindle, then go get Baal, can I compete in both Pindle+ category and Baal category provided I am diligent about separating my drops?

    i.e. I get IK Stone Crusher from Pindle, that find only gets put into the Pindle+ category
    ...then later in that same run I get Naj's Puzzler from Baal, that only gets put into the Baal category. Separate stashes for separate targets.

    Well, theoretically yes, unless your name is @NagisaFurukawa . He won 2 categories at same MFO without real contest even. Like a boss of a boss.

    I would sign up if I was confident I could win, in order to lay claim to pharsword when phar inevitably finds it during this MFO. Alas I do not have the time to commit to such a competition.
