    8 hours left, should be able to finish this set, or come very close. Motivation is definitely better now. Only had 1 qualifier in first 8 hours, now it looks like I'll definitely have at least 5. It feels like I'm finally getting the hang of running cows. Herding feels much better and more natural, and I now have far fewer merc deaths, even under Amp.

    The profitable approach to these events is not to care about the score. Focus on trolling instead!

    I skipped last year because I knew Zod will become a new El. This year, however, no one will find Zod. Except for 4 players. Let's round to 5.

    Behold, update on major favorites to win the first round are here!

    1. ffs
    His Javazon is named Rocky. Like Balboa, except she's actually cute.

    2. Babyhell
    It is pretty evident he found something huge which he is eager to share with all of us. Along with those 5 Ber runes that aren't even in his top 5.

    3. sir_cyclops
    Aims to top 5 with his score which means he is only one Zod short from breaking the record!

    @EatSleepDiablov2 wow. those skillers! nice!

    @Gripphon I don't about me as a "major favorite to win"... more like "favorite to place top 7" ;)

    My prediction, with how fluid that necro play from grip was in the video he posted, is that both of grips score will be in the top 5. I am actually a little bit intimidated by @ffs' late start though. A final epic push by him to win would be pretty dramatic... and it seems like RFL is a place where magic happens.

    Easy guys, I got nothing but garbage for the first 6 hours and still not sure I'll manage a set... I'm trying, though. ;)

    Also, do you hear that sound? That's @NanoMist typing the following PM to @Grape:

    Code:
    Zod 71.81
    Zod 71.81
    Zod 71.81
    Zod 71.81
    Zod 71.81
    
    Total: 359.05
    
    Thanks for hosting. I was mildly entertained.

    New to SPF here, going to be doing some fresh chars and saw this RFL thread. Looks like I may have to get a sorc going for round 2 :) Not a time warper and still play some Bnet so it'll be 1.14d for me. I will watch for the round 2 sign up.

    That's what she said. Zod may as well be a garbage, although worth a lot of points. Gratz on all those Zods!

    Nicely spotted about NanoMist. He is currently trying to finish his fifth set and has no time to talk.

    Hi guys, I see my inbox has many new messages!

    Keep them coming, I'll check them after this round is over. Have to keep this interesting, cause it would be pretty dull to see WoRG messaging me about his Cham while I'm still celebrating my fresh 1.07 Zod :S

    Good luck to all us who are still running! You can expect the results thread during the weekend. I won't be able to put it up during the Friday, but PLEASE, drop me a PM IMMEDIATELY after you have finished ;)

    @Drixx you are now added to the first post as well :)

    Oh yes i can't wait... but maybe it wouldn't be that huge for you all machines, and in the end it is not even in my best set, and i'm so disappointed by that fact ! On top of that, i was so close to miss it that it adds to my personnal feelings ! :eek:

    Anyway, i couldn't be more hyped than this first RFL round ever for me with my first serious ever Amazon whatever the drops would be but... as i got some, how can't i share there - vids are ready, uploaded on private mode, can't make anything more than training for second round now, and try to get as much fun with my brand new Barb ;)

    I put it up on a free hosting site here. I think its most interesting to see what havoc an RNG can create.

    While I'm at it, here is the cubing calculator. Again, math can get you the same info but sometimes its more fun to play around with the data a bit.

    I'm not a web designer so nothing is pretty but its all javascript based so if you're interested, all the guts are there under 'View page source'.

    @jjscud on the first link, on the left side, did you mean “runes to drop” instead of “HRs to drop”?

    Edit: also, clearing drops doesn’t work for me. For debugging info, I’m in safari on iPhone.

    I'm also preparing for second round to make up the points from this first round. I thought about using barb, however I can't be bothered to roll a perfect map for him. Instead I'll go with sorc. Again, for the millionth time. I won't pick anything up to have as easy running as possible which I really need to finish the Travincal round properly.

    I did a new vid for the thread I'm planning to open about her before the second round, but may as well share it now. She's not entirely terrible I think. Sub 16s running.

    Past the half-way point. A little Necro action in between. He was fun and had a good run of 10 minutes – then he died and I didn't have the runes for Insight to replace IG. :cool: That guy is so squishy. Anyway back to Java for now, tried a brief stint on P5... but as expected, P7 is more efficient for her.

    Gripphon 2017: "Trust me guys I tried 14k Blizzard and it's not faster at all." Gripphon 2019: "LOL just kidding".

    15 second runs, seriously? And here my goal was to finally get sub-18s more consistently. As @T72on1 said, the map rolling is on. :)

    Gogogo roll dat maps!
    Well, this is 15.7k damage setup. Compared to standard setup which has 10.7k damage, this one makes it around 0.5 seconds faster and also more fragile which is why I use resist boots and not standard War Travelers.

    @Gripphon that video is insane.

    I rolled maps for about an hour and managed to get all the council on the left balcony only a single time, but they were spread out along it. The search continues.

    Edit: someone needs to make a budget trav blizz guide.

    I rolled a good map after some 10 minutes. Going to keep it, even though it's not Grippgodly. All members are on the left side of the left balcony, just not as tight as with Gripph's insane map. Currently erring on the safe side, so HotO, Shako and a Dwarf Star instead of DFathom, Nightwing's Veil and second SoJ. Gives me 7.5K Blizzard. I don't understand how you get to such high amount of damage, since I have an inventory full of skillers (except for 1 1x4 empty row and 1 Gheeds) and all the +skills I can muster.

    Anyway, some test runs put me at 23.2 sec avg, 18.5 sec fastest run. Last year I finished with an average of 23.6 sec, so I should be just as fast as then, which is nice.
