Welcome to the first RFL! This thread is for signing-up and talking about the second round of the RFL. What is RFL? RFL stands for Rune Finding League. RFL is a free for all rune finding tournament that has three individual parts. You can participate for every three round or pick only one or two. During this contest we farm runes in various areas during 2 weeks periods, with a one week of rest between each round. Players get points based on rarity of the rune (not its level) and at the end each player posts top 5 highest scored runes to get the final score. For the first round we run areas, second is about running Travincal Council Members and for the last round we run Cow level. When is RFL? 1st round, "Areas" : 3.2. - 16.2.2017 2nd round, "Travincal": 24.2 - 9.3. 3rd round: "Moo Moo Farm": 17.3 - 30.3. So, this second round starts on Friday 24rth February at 0.00 and ends on Thursday 9th March at 23.59 Signup is open for each round until the end. Standings after the first round: Spoiler 1. Grape (10 points) 2. Xios and tokerdin (8 points) 3. Pb_pal (6 points) 4. Neksja (5 points) 5. NanoMist (4 points) 6. Brak (3 points) 7. Gripphon (2 points) 8. ILikeRocks (1 point) General rules These are rules that stand for all the three rounds. Specific rules for the second round are posted below 1. For each round, 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. You can play as many batches as you want. 2. You are not allowed to start a new batch as long as you don't finish full 20 hours of the previous one. 3. Every batch is scored individually, and you will get points towards the league according to your best batch from each round. 4. Best batch is the one where your top 5 runes give the most scores. Scoring can be found below. 5. Screenshots of runes are not required, but I assume people would like to see them anyway. You are encouraged to post your findings... 6. ... but only after each round is finished! Don't post your qualifiers when the round is still going. You are warmly welcome to discuss your other findings however. But remember: Don't post your qualifying runes! 7. Runes qualified (giving scores) are all Pul+ runes. 8. Cubing runes into higher ones is not allowed. In other words don't cube Pul runes into Um to get a higher score. 9. Versions allowed: 1.13-1.14. Also version 1.07 is allowed, but I will add the scoring table for it later. Specific rules for the 2nd round: You can run Travincal Council members only. Runes dropped by other monsters or poppables from Travincal do not count. Scoring Scoring is based on rarity of runes, not level. System is the same as we had earlier during RFOs and Zodthon. Combine the points of the top 5 runes from your best batch each round. Pul 3.4 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 Zod 71.8 (not available for the 2nd round) 1.07: Spoiler 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 Zod ? Towards the whole competition, however, you will get points after each round depending on your placement. Scoring towards the whole RFL: After each round is done, you will get points toward the whole RFL depending your placement that round. 1st: 10 points 2nd: 8 3rd 6 4th: 5 5th: 4 6th: 3 7th 2 8th: 1 And remember, only your best batch from each round counts. While we crown every winner from each round, the biggest champion is of course the overall winner. The Champion of the RFL is the player who has the most points given by placements total. In case of a tie after three rounds, the winner is the one with a higher scoring rune from Cows. If that is a tie as well, we check the Travincal, and then areas. If all three are still the same, it's 2nd best from Cows etc. There's no tiebreakers for the individual rounds. Players share the position and both get full points according to it. Sending results PM me your top 5 runes from your best batch. Please do this immediately after you have stopped running so that we can have results and standings after each round ASAP. Also PM me if you didn't run. Your PM should include: five runes, five scores, and the total score. Example: 1. Zod 71.8 2. Cham 27.5 3. Lo 15.1 4. Lo 15.1 5. Ist 7.5 total: 137. After receiving your results, I'll make the results thread for each round. There you can brag about your runes, and also post screenshots of your top 5 runes, at least. This is not mandatory however. Claiming to have found 5 Zods may seem strange without screenshots though. Prize Eternal glory and the seal of approval from the Zod God.
