It's MFO Time - July 2008 signup thread

It's been about six months since the last one wrapped up, so I guess that means it's that time again! Welcome to the July 2008 Magic Find Olympics! (MFO for short). There was some discussion in another thread and I've done my best to accomidate everyone who expressed some concerns, and still remain within the frame of what jjscud began and passed on to me last year.

Without further adieu ... the MFO.


Start date: July 19 2008
End date: July 27 2008


Total time - 9 days. For the purposes of the MFO, July 19th begins at 00:00 local time for you on the morning of the 19th, and will end at 24:00 local time for you at night on July 27th. This is nine complete days.

The Categories

- Hell Mephisto
- Hell Baal
- Act 5 SuperUniques: Shenk, Eldritch, Pindleskin, Thresh, Sharptooth.
- Level 85 Areas (The Mausoleum, The Pit, Maggot Lair lvl 3, Ancient Tunnels, Kurast Sewers lvl 2, Forgotten Temple, Ruined Fane, Disused Reliquary, River of Flame, Chaos Sanctuary (not including seal boss packs and Diablo), Worldstone Keep, Throne of Destruction (not including minion waves))
- teams -- No teams this time, unless there's a big desire for them.


Participants

Anyone who is or has been active at the SPF may enter. However, the supervisors reserve the right to prohibit entry of anyone they see unfit and to disqualify anyone who is cheating.

If you're entered, try to do your best.

And if you don't think that you're capable of giving up a Windforce or a Stormlash if you find one and lose, this probably isn't for you.

Allowed mods RRM, RWM, and CRM. You must post your version and mod status!

Eligible finds

The following monsters are the only ones whose drops will be considered in each category:

- Hell Meph: Meph only.
- Hell Baal: Baal and his 5 minion packs.
- Act 5 SuperUniques: The mentioned SuperUniques and their Minions, in the cases of Eldritch, Pindle and Sharptooth.
- Level 85 areas: Any monster in these areas. Except Baal's and Diablo's minions.

Drops from all other sources will not count. This includes Blood Lords and Council Members near Meph, Prowling Dead in Pindle's Garden, Chests in the Pits, etc.

Summary of rules:

-All intending participants must register the categories they wish to compete in. No late entries will be accepted.

-The winning player shall be determined by the five highest-ranked items they find during the week.

-In case of 2 players tying with the same score, the winner shall be decided by adding in the score of the next rarest item each of them found, then the next and so on until a clear winner is decided.

-Remember to keep eligible finds separate from the rest of your gear.

-DO NOT post your finds, you may ID your finds.

-Email your findings to your area's supervisor within two days after the end of the MFO - by July 29th.

Things to include in your e-mail:
-title should contain MFO
-Your forum name (PLEASE, PLEASE, we end up guessing everytime)
-The category and your top 5 items for each category you entered

ex:

Title: SPF - MFO results
Forum name: Drixx

Meph
Firelizard's Talons 36.1
Eaglehorn 39.6
Eaglehorn 39.6 (example of multiple find)


...

-If you quit or drop out, please send your area supervisor an email or PM saying so.

-In the interest of sportsmanship, please send updates of your progress during the MFing week to your supervisor. These should be in the same format as your final results email. Supervisors will likely post updates every 1-2 days. These updates will list current order but not points.

Prize distribution

1st Place - picks 4 items from ANY other entrants (max 1 per entrant).
2nd Place - picks 3 items from ANY other entrants ranked below you (max 1 per entrant)
3rd place - picks 2 items from ANY other entrants ranked below you (max 1 per entrant)
with a maximum of 3 items taken from each entrant.

Hardcore players will compete for 1st through 3rd along with the softcore players; however, they may only claim items as prizes from other HC players, and may only have items taken from them by other HC players.

Scoring

The system is based on the relative rarity compared to the IK Stonecrusher, the most common elite set or unique.

Baal (csv File)
lvl 85 Areas (csv File)
Meph (csv File)
Act 5 SUs (csv File)

I would very much like to have a supervisor for each catagory as we have for the MFO for the last couple years. If you're interested in being a catagory supervisor, please pm me. If my box is full, my e-mail is jonathen (dot) roman (at) gmail (dot) com.

Thank you for once again organizing the MFO Drixx! :thumbup:

I ran Meph last time and have decided to move up a notch and run the Act V Super Uniques (Pindle) this time.

I will be using my lvl 96 Blizzsorc again (she's my lucky star). If she's anywhere near as successful as she was during the last MFO I will gladly come in last place since the non-qualifiers she found for me were already beyond expectation.

I don't know how many runs I'll be able to do but I hope to reach the 8k mark again.

Personally I would very much like a team competition. But even if there isn't one I will always consider myself a "Kitten".

Sounds good to me, I'll be baaling again, hopefully the challengers will put in more of a fight this year! I plan to go even harder, hopefully find some nice stuff again, good luck everyone!

@Drixx

Where is the team signup area, as I will be signing up as part of a team at some stage, although I think we may be short a fourth member this time.

Yay! Finally a reason to level my hammerdin some more! Currently level 95...like I said in the announcement: If there should be teams, I could join... this time I do have time for running.

Just asking: I may switch characters if I should die, may I??:scratchhead:

Re: It's MFO Time - July 2008 signup thread

I'm done with B.Net after 2 weeks of ladder, and back to single player. Got a new comp so have none of my previous chars, but I made a orb/nova sorc yesterday and she's now 67 in act 1 hell. This will be my first MFO, I arrived as it ended last time and stopped playing before the next arrived. I don't know yet which area to run, but I can rule out baal runs cause of my crap gear as of now, which leaves pindle, meph, and tunnels(or Maus) as my main options. Suggestions?

Since you don't have any equipment right now, I would suggest Mephisto. He is the most easy one and will give you plenty of really good items.

It's OK to bug pindle a lot isn't it, rather than mix it up?
Just checking: any players setting is allowed?
Wasn't there an option to "protect" one item in the last MFO, so it couldn't be taken regardless?

Eskimo will take a break from teleing for Baal runs to pound pindle into submission, she's found Vex, Jah, so the S/Us are due to drop

I'm not decided where to run yet, but it seems a good opportunity to level some characters.

Will we get to protect one item this time?

Re: It's MFO Time - July 2008 signup thread

Oh man, I was really waiting to be able to take part, as last time I couldn't. My current situation allows maybe 15 mins gaming per day on average, and I guess that's not enough :p

However, this coming week, the missus and the kid are away, so I'll have the whole evenings to mf like crazy. How about I do it this week? No? :whistling:

I guess I'll do it anyway, I'll just pretend I'm in the MFO. At least the Tyraels I find will be safe... And I will find it.

Yeah, I remember that one. Hope you can protect one item? I don't want to lose that Tyraes's I will find ;-) What do you say, Drixx?

btw, fixing the table by adding Alucard again - he and lionheart posted almost simultaneously... :)

Re: It's MFO Time - July 2008 signup thread

I'd like to see the item protection back in; to my mind that's an essential part of the MFO.

As are teams. I'd like to see those in too. I would certainly go for being in a team for bragging rights.

I'll be in Greece from the 23rd till after the MFO ends. I'll take part next time round though.
Best of luck to everyone competing and remember to enjoy yourselves!

I'll be checking the IFT and results posts when I get back and I'm expecting to see multiple Tyraels!
