I had originally entered three, so I will remove the blizz sorc.

I will be running:

HammerSpammer level 90 Hammerdin
Charsis_Lover Level ** Meteorb Sorc
 
The sets idea sounds like a good move. Having 3 hours per character would be cool, although the timing might have to change. Would it be you play for 3 hours, then just say which was your best find in the 1st hour, 2nd and 3rd hour, or would we do 1 hours play, post result, then wait until the enemy posts his, before begining set 2. Otherwise, it'll still bascially be the person who find the best 3 items in the time limit, which is like what you have now.

As I understand the rules, we are not restricted to specific areas, so I won't assign targets for my chars, just let's see how things turn out.

One remark though: If there are to be 3 rounds per week, I can't afford that. Two chars with 2 hours each I can manage, but no more, since I want to play other chars as well and not dedicate all my time towards MF.
Yep, I like the idea too of no area restrictions. About the 3 rounds, I think you got it a little wrong. The 3 in question would be hours, separated into one hour each increments where you would stop and ascertain your best item for that interval before moving on. Also, if there is a problem with time, only enter one char. But as I said, I was just floating ideas in my head, this is nothing permanent here.

@FB, you would do them all at once, so it would be more like the MFO, where its my best 3 against your best 3, which means I start not to like it as much, as I don't really want an MFO here.

Yea, you'd basically be doing micro-MFO's aginst 1 person at a time. Like yiou im starting to think it'll be less fun that way. Either work it so each player has 3 days to complete 1 set, so each round lasts 9 days in total, or drop the set idea, go back to 2 hour session like before. Or maybe a 1 hour session per round. that'll make it so it will really be up to luck as to who wins, no amount of MF to guarentee you victory.

Yes something like this can happen:

player 1: crap | crap | stormlash
player 2: better crap | better crap | crap

In the set idea player 2 wins?
I would rather stick with the previous idea.
(But I will be happy with each format unless it will require much time spent).
 
bracket A
player 1 v player 2 - match 1
player 3 v player 4 - match 2
player 5 v player 6 - match 3
player 7 v player 8 - match 4
player 9 v player 10 - match 5
player 11 v player 12 - match 6

winner 1 v loser 6 - match 7
winner 2 v loser 5 - match 8
winner 3 v loser 4 - match 9
winner 4 v loser 3 - match 10
winner 5 v loser 2 - match 11
winner 6 v loser 1 - match 12

winner 7 v winner 8 - match 13
winner 9 v winner 1 - match 14
winner 11 v winner 12 - match 15

winner 13 v winner 14 v winner 15 - match 16

Have the same for backet B, then the winner of each brakcet faces off to decide the overall winner.
The 3-way matchup at the end is just in case there isnt the right numbers to have proper semi finals and finals, and adds more flavour.
Just an idea.
As for individual matches, im going for 1 hour of Mfing per round, with the judges decidiong on who has the better item (not just basing it on rarity since it can come from any monster.)
Im bored, as you can probably tell.

Oh, I had 3 matches at 2 hours in mind, that would make 6 hours per char and week ;) So your 1 hour per match and 3 matches are only 3 hours... Well, just my opinion: one hour per match is probably not enough to get reasonable results... Baal and Pit runs take perhaps 10-15 minutes (in fact my hammerdin needs 20 minutes for pit), and in one hour you could do only 4-6 runs there. At least that's by far not enough for pits. Two hours there is still not much, but you may get at least something.

I vote for KISS ... keep it small and simple ;)

@FBob: What is the purpose of the second round in your system? Double KO system is much better.

We are going to do the first time around a bracket, double elimination, NCAA style, with one 2-hour match. I was just entertaining ideas in my head ways to improve future seasons.

The point is you can lose the first round (unlucky drops etc) and still get through, and it means more rounds, so shoul be harder to win overall.

Yes, but losing the first round doesn't penalize you. Losing the first round you still have the same chance of winning the second round and become an overall winner as the winner of your challenge. Everything important is in the 2nd round. That is making the first round not so important. (Ughh bad English here, sorry, I hope you understand what I wanted to say.)

yea, you do have a point. ok, go for double KO style thing instead.
So when will the signing up end and when will we know the brackets and entrants?

eh, 48 to 72 hours, brackets will go up. In about 24 hours I will post a complete list of entrants so far.

I just wanna make sure everyone who wants in gets in. The first week will actually be almost a week and a half to smooth out any kinks in the system. I can tell you week 2 will begin on Easter weekend (4/03)

Um, yeah, the above that says easter is the 3rd of April...

I was wrong. I can't wrap my head around the fact its in March! Anyway, the date is correct, but the labeling of the weekend a holiday was incorrect.

If you really need another char I can pull out my lvl 97 CL/FO sorc. I wouldn't like to do this, but if you're stuck at 63 entrants orso, I'll fill up.

''Mil & Sam''

ps. I don't like to pull out that char since I retired all my old chars..
