After hearing some old MFO players saying that they are not up to play so much in such a short time I had an idea for a tournament and I want to have your feedback. The Name: - MF Journeys The format: - 5x 20h, each done in one month The targets: - A85 and Pindle+ all in same category (any combination of targets and characters, limit is 20h max per Journey) The scoring: - Top 5 like MFO The ranking system: - Each journey has one (final) update and rankings - the journey of each player for that one - In the end of each journey we have a rank leaded by the best journey so far - all journeys from each player are ranked - In the end of each journey we update the MF Championship rank - each player has a total score result of all their journeys Winners: - 5 winners, one from each journey - 1 winner of best journey - 1 champion (best total) Prizes: - Same as MFO, the champion can claim up to 4 items from any player, 2nd place up to 3 items from any player below him/her, 3rd place up to 2 items from any player below him/her. Max of 2 items taken per person. - BUT also 4th place can claim up to 1 item from any player player below him. - Winning any journey reduces max items taken to that player to 1 (I think it shouldn't be cumulative) - Winner of best journey is immune Details: - Starting in November 1st? - Would end in March 31st - Results of each journey must be sent until the end of the first day of the next month - Posting results and update must be done until the end of the fifth day - Next Journey starts on the 6th and ends in the last day of the month - Local time for each player (but with at least 23 days to do 20h I guess we don't need such details) - The 20h per month should be counted for time in D2 only. Mulling doesn't count. Updating excel doesn't count. - I'd share a google excel with every player so I could take the final results as soon as I'd get the okay from that player. For those who don't like google, or can't make it work offline and needs to be offline, I can send a MS excel file instead, that needs to be sent back to me in the end of each Journey Updates details: - If I manage to get a new and nicer excel, in addition to ranking every qualifier found and showing top5 and score, it could show number of qualifiers, number of each qualifier. This for every Journey, for Journey Rank and Championship Rank Comments: - I tried to designed it in a way that players don't get discouraged if the first Journeys don't go well. They'd have lots of time to look for better maps, change characters, get gear upgrades, practice, etc. And continuing and aiming for great Journeys ahead can save found items (even if looting doesn't happen much these days) and brand them as winners anyway. - Maybe the Journey winner prize should be saving one item (and cumulative) instead of reducing the max items that can be claimed from him/her? - This tournament would bring us lots of players doing 100h - Since it give all participants time, they don't need to do huge efforts in such a short time and when RL steals a couple of weeks, they still have a chance to participate - Maybe it should start in October instead, so then we can have a MFO in March? - If it goes well we could have 5 months of Journeys followed by MFO twice per year!
