    Its MFO Time!

    Ok, its time for a full blown, week long, Magic Find Olympics

    Start date: July 16th, 2010
    End date: July 25th, 2010


    Total time - 10 days.


    Quick Intro

    For those new to the MFO, the basic jist of it is everyone picks one of 4 targets and runs that taget like mad for about a week. At the end, everyone scores their finds (scoresheets below) and adds up the top five finds. The players with the top scores win and they get to claim a few items from the other participants as prizes.

    No proxy signups, you may only signup yourself.

    The Categories

    - Hell Baal
    - Pindle+: Pindleskin (or Shenk, Eldritch, Thresh or Sharptooth).
    - Ancient Tunnels
    - Other Level 85 Areas
    - teams



    -In the interest of sportsmanship, please email regular updates of your progress during the MFing week to your supervisor. These should be in the same format as your final results email (no ATMA readouts at this time).

    I will need 4 category supervisors (one for each area), preferably someone who has participated in a previous MFO and will participate in this one.


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

    example:

    Title: SPF - MFO results
    Forum name: jjscud

    Meph
    Firelizard's Talons 36.1
    Eaglehorn 39.6
    Eaglehorn 39.6 (example of duplicate find)
    Total 115.3

    ...

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

    -Email your score and ATMA readouts of your top 5 to your area's supervisor within 24 hours after the end of the MFO - by July 26th.



    Participants

    The list of entered participants will follow.

    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 Any SPF FAM mod and any version 1.10 or later.

    Since items are switching back and forth, you must have a trading profile over on the SP Trading Forum Since 1.13 final was released since last MFO, most everyone will need to have updated their profiles since last MFO.

    Also, if you've been banned from trading and/or mp'ing then you will not be allowed to participate in the MFO.


    Eligible finds

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

    - Hell Baal: Baal and his 5 minion packs.
    - Pindle+: The mentioned SuperUniques and their Minions, in
    the cases of Eldritch, Pindle and Sharptooth.
    - Ancient Tunnels: Any monster (not the chest) in here is fair game.
    - Level 85 areas: The Mausoleum, The Pit, Maggot Lair lvl 3, 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)

    Drops from all other sources will not count. This includes 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.


    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)
    There's a maximum of 2 items taken from each entrant per category.

    I will add my own "good sportsmanship" suggestions. I won't enforce these but any reasonable person shouldn't have any problem following these.

    1. Don't claim items for their trade value, claim items you want to use or as a trophy
    2. If you want a trophy, please be considerate (i.e. no grailers)
    3. if you claim an item and the player really wants it, give them a chance to trade back their self found item for a similar or better one or other item as you see fit.
    4. If someone is claiming one of your items, you may personalize it before giving it to them.

    Scoring

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

    Here are the score sheets (lvl 85 for both AT and other lvl 85 areas)

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


    Teams


    - Please only sign up for team if you are fairly certain you will be able to participate, your team will be depending on you.

    - You may have up to a maximum of 5 members in a team with a minimum of 3 members (no 1 or 2 man teams)

    - Each member must first be registered under the Singles MFO first.

    - One member may run more than one category.

    - Scoring will be based on your team's highest scores in each category.

    - Multiple members in a single category is allowed. However, only the highest score of 1 member will be taken into account.

    Eg. Both Fred and George are in Team CB and running Baal. Fred has a score 150 while George's is 130. Hence Team CB's score for Baal will be based on Fred's ranking.

    - When registering your team here, simply state your team name and its members.

    - Points will be awarded based on ranking in your category, 1st place gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, 3rd gets 8 and so on. If 2nd place is not participating in the teams competition, and 3rd is, 3rd still gets 8 points.

    - Team play is just for bragging rights, participating in a team will not risk any of your MFO finds any further.

    - If you do not have a team currently but wish to participate on a team. Please sign up under "Availible for teams", this will let others creating a team to know that you are available and I will create as many teams as possible with those that remain at the end.

    I'm looking forward to this. I think I may even get to allot a decent amount of time for the running this time around.

    Re: Its MFO Time!

    Crap, I had been hoping I'd have a character that could have participated after my restart, but some RL obligations have made that impossible. Alas.

    I'll be back for the end of year MFO though.

    Good luck to all that participate though, and may your drops be golden.

    Tough I will start on 17th when I come back from vacation I think it's plenty of time to take another no1 spot in MFO don't you think? :wink: [/trashtalk]

    If kittens forms up again you can sign me up since I won't be here for a week.

    Re: Its MFO Time!

    If i'm reading the rules correctly there's no entering this thing as 'out of competition'? And by that i mean i don't want to give up my precious, and i'm also not interested in taking items from anyone else.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    I think I might give my 1.12 Hammerdin a go, seeing as I created him as a MF character. I'm tossing up between Pindle and Baal. Going Pindle at the moment because no-one else seems interested in Baal. I'm also up for another go at the teams contest, if my fellow Kittens!!! are still around...

    I'm going to take this as a sign and run the Pits instead of Baal. To be honest, it sounds a lot more fun too :)

    Re: Its MFO Time!

    Nope, this has always (even before I began running it) been the one tournament that we don't hold back on.


    Guys (and gals, though I haven't seen any sign up yet) we need the version of 1.13 in the tags (i.e. 1.13c SC FAM). I've updated those who were missing it but had it in their trade profile.

    Note: your category isn't final until signups close and the MFO starts.

    Re: Its MFO Time!

    That's a shame. I've seen several tournaments where both participating for loot and without it are allowed and it seems like the latter also attracts enough people. I'm guessing that's mostly people that either don't trade, or don't like to loose items they've been searching for for quite a while (i would fall into both categories).

    Not to mention ofc. that otherwise i'd be kicking your collective asses :badteeth:.
