    Here we go again! It's already the third edition of the much awaited RFL!

    Let me warmly welcome you all to the RFL! This thread is for signing-up and talking about the first 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": 15.3. - 4.4.2019
    • 2nd round, "Travincal": 12.4 - 2.5.
    • 3rd round, "Areas" : 10.5 - 30.5.

    So, this first round starts on Friday 15th March at 0.00 and ends on Thursday 4th April at 23.59

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


    General rules

    These are the 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 1st round:

    For the first round we will be running Moo Moo Farm AKA Cow level.

    All qualifiers from Cow level area counts. Runes from Tristram or Stony Field (when picking up the leg), do NOT count.

    Picking up the leg COUNTS toward the total running time however!

    You don't have to collect legs and kill cows on a same character, as long as you remember to have your clock running all the time spent in the game!

    Scoring

    Scoring is based on rarity of runes. System is the same as we had during the earlier RFLs and 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:
    Pul 19.4
    Um 29.1
    Mal 38.7
    Ist 58.0
    Gul 77.2
    Vex 115.7
    Ohm 153.0
    Lo 229.6
    Sur 308.2
    Ber 462.3
    Jo 615.8
    Zod 739.3
    Cham 923.7

    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.

    Still no 1.07 Zod score? You should do better, Grape ;).

    And yes, I'm in of course. A lot to lose, almost impossible to win something after last year's result, but that's how it goes :).

    Untwinked 99ers will make some progress during the three rounds, javazon for round 1, barb for round 2, and necro for round 3 (hopefully to level 98 and Nihl runs by then). So I won't be competitive here, but well worth it for the XP progress (and rune progress hopefully for javazon) and company along the way. Looking forward to the third rendition of this new SPF tradition :)

    Guys what should I run cows with (and version) ?

    1.07 sorc as usual (already lvl 99...) to level up some stuff.
    1.07 other (necro is OK, barbs kinda suck, javazon is decent)
    1.13 fire drood (I don't really like this char :/)
    1.13 javazon with my phoenix (made for drood buy dying to use it productively for another char)

    1.13 never play again?

    Decided to pass on that job opportunity that would have meant flying back around the time this starts. But there’s a chance I’ll return late March/early April, so a last minute sign-up remains possible. If not, pretty sure I’ll be there for round 2.

    Can somebody please get it together and out-RNG @NanoMist this time!? (Tournament results were kind of monotonous last year. ;))

    GL & HF all!

    Please, @Grape is the one we need to beat. He went to 1.07 just to kill us with Zods.

    Not feeling efficient at all yet running cows with my poison Necro, but the Javazon isn't ready yet. My goal for this round: Get 2 Lo runes to gear up my WW Barb for the next round.

    If it's any consolation ... I wasn't efficient at all either with my poison necro last year. If the runes drop, they drop .

    I always seem to miss these. Not this year! Maybe my Javazon can get Enigma before this starts...
