    Welcome to the second 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 3 weeks periods, with one week of rest and planning 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 Cow level, second is about running Travincal Council Members and for the last round we run area of one own's choice.


    When is RFL?

    • 1st round, "Moo Moo Farm": 16.3. - 5.4.2018 [Running] [Results]
    • 2nd round, "Travincal": 13.4 - 3.5.
    • 3rd round, "Areas" : 11.5 - 31.5.

    So, this second round starts on Friday 13th April at 0.00 and ends on Thursday 3rd May at 23.59

    Sign-up is open for each round until the end.


    Standings after the first round
    1. T72on1 (10 points)

    2. Pb_pal (8 points)

    3. maxicek (6 points)

    4. NanoMist (5 points)

    5. Locohead (4 points)

    6. drmalawi (3 points)

    7. darkstarhub (2 points)

    8. ffs (1 point)


    General rules

    These are rules that stand for all the three rounds. Specific rules for the first 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.


    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:
    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 Areas. If that is a tie as well, we check the Travincal, and then Cows. If all three are still the same, it's 2nd best from Areas etc.



    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.

    Yes indeed.

    Goal: make up for Rd 1 on the Lo+ front! Also, get in at least 2 hours with my Fanazealot. The rest will probably be the blizz sorc, who finally rolled a good map earlier this am.

    Goal: To not deeds my character, that would be gggggggggreat. Otherwise, I'd rather like to beat everybody by 20 points and rub their noses in it for eternity. I'll settle for 6th place and an Ohm rune for Call to Arms.

    In with my Blizzard sorc.

    Goals? Everybody seems to have goals ;). Hmm let's see ...

    1) Find two Vex runes: the other half of the Phoenix runeword I found in round 1.
    2) Fine one of the 3 unique jewelry items I still miss: SoJ, Wisp Projector or Metalgrid.
    3) Someone wit a 100+ score
    4) 23 sec runs on average

    Finally rolled a map that'll do. I have another Sorc with Blizz spec so I can continue re-rolling if I want to shoot for the best... gotta check my averages with the current.

    Getting into the groove:
    Screenshot582.jpg

    Goals:

    1. Big bunch of HIGH runes (I'll take the Chams, please)
    2. See some jaw dropping items (I'd like to have a few good charms myself, maybe couple jewels, but won't say no to surprises)
    3. That all participants will enjoy and have fun!

    Let's make it clear from the start, for this round I won't be messing around! ;)

    My untwinked characters are out for this one anyway, so I'm going with my trusted Blizzy. She never rolled away her amazing map from last year's RFL where she finished 2nd, just an inch behind a sick set from @Pb_pal. So my goal is to finish ahead of @Pb_pal essentially. :)

    Kidding aside, I'm not really looking for specific runes outside my untwinked characters, so I guess my goal is just to run faster (and hopefully have more RNG on my side than for round 1, obviously :)). Last year she had ~19s runs, and I only found very minor upgrades for Blizzard Sorc since then. But let's see, maybe she can improve!

    This is the round I signed up for! Hopefully I can find 20 hours of play time. Then I can crush all opposition with inflated 1.07 points! :D

    My goal:
    1) Use my sorc to inefficiently run council when I have time.
    2) Hope for any HR to drop

    I was gonna level up my Barb for Trav but after reading about all these Blizz Sorcs running I might need to change tactics.

    Hmm. Maybe I should rush up a new 1.07 sorc that uses blizzard. Think that would be viable (and more viable) than FOrb since it's easier to space? I'm not sure how good the dmg is.

    Please do, I don't want to see you deed your 98 sorc :p

    Or instead run with Barb who would be probably the most efficient, then there's java/bow too...

    My time is going to be a bit more restricted this round as I am away for 5 days in the middle. Still hoping to complete the 20h though, but it may be tight.

    Planning to run with a barb and/or blizz sorc. I'm attempting to roll a good map at the moment and I hate it. Whenever I thing I have something decent, Torc wanders in from somewhere random. How long Grip took to roll his I wonder?

    I wonder the same thing. Does someone remember Gripp posting in detail about rolling a Travi map? Other than the "magic line", which he explained several times.

    I spent many hours yesterday before landing my current. They are tightly packed now, but I'm on the other side of them as I'd have liked. Seems fast though, but I wonder is the perfect map still a little bit faster...
