Howls will echo through the Pit. Icy Shards will rain down in the Ancient Tunnels. Lightning bolts will fly and corpses will explode across the land.

Pindle’s horde shambles along in dread of the carnage. Baal’s minions cower in the face of the coming onslaught, and their master’s arrogance is pierced by a moment of doubt.

Sanctuary beware. It’s time for the Magic Find Olympics!

Alright SPFers, it’s time for the 2019 Summer MFO, a longstanding SPF tradition (as documented here)!

Most of the content that follows is shamelessly copied from previous MFOs. So thanks to the prior hosts, mostly nulio, Fabian, and jjscud, and most recently Grape. I hope this updated formatting works for everyone. In general, if you have any questions or comments, you can ask in this thread or you can PM me.

* * *​

I. Basics
Short version:
Run one of three targets—A85, Baal, and Pindle+— as much as possible during a ten-day window spanning two weekends and hope for many golden sacred armors (of the blue variety).
Long version: See section II ;)

Start: Friday, August 16 (00:00 local time)
End: Sunday, August 25 (23:59 local time)

II. Overview
MFO stands for Magic Finding Olympics. For those new to the MFO, the gist of it is everyone picks one of three targets and runs that target like mad for 10 days. At the end, everyone scores their Sets/Uniques using the scoresheets below and adds up the top five finds. The players with the top scores win and they may claim a few items from lower scoring participants who ran the same target as prizes.

You need to have a trading profile to participate due to winners getting to claim items (see Section V for more info on this, as it’s less complicated than it sounds).

All participants must register the categories they wish to compete in before MFO kicks off. No deciding to participate when that Mang’s drops while doing casual MF runs after MFO starts. Sign-up post will follow below.

The Categories
- Hell Baal
- Pindle+: Pindleskin (or Shenk, Eldritch, Thresh or Sharptooth).
- Level 85 Areas

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 only.
- Pindle+: The mentioned SuperUniques (and their minions, in the cases of Eldritch, Pindle and 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).

Drops from all other sources will not count. This includes Prowling Dead in Pindle’s Garden, Chests in the Pits/Ancient Tunnels, etc. So if you’re in the Baal category, that Tyrael’s that drops from a random boss pack in the Throne Room doesn’t count :eek:

Beyond that, there are very few limitations. No restrictions of class, builds, items, or approach, provided everyone abides by general SPF rules regarding forum accepted mods (FAM), etc. So any SPF FAM mod and any version 1.11 or later. If you’re not sure about FAM, please read the rules.

III. Scoring
The system is based on the relative rarity compared to the Immortal King Stonecrusher, the most common elite set or unique. Here are the score sheets for each category (from Community Links Sticky): A85, Baal, Pindle+. The full txt files in two formats (alphabetical and item ranking) are also embedded in the spoilers below.

The winning player is determined by the five highest-ranked items they find during the MFO. In case of two 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.

Nulio created an excel file that can help you with several things:
Code:
1. 'Tables' sheet has all the scores
2. 'Point Calculator' sheet allows you to list all your finds and calculates your score
a) You have to indicate the category
b) If you are playing more than one category, duplicate the sheet
c) To allow automatic timestamping you need to turn the iterative calculation (File > Options > Formulas > Enable iterative calculation). If you don't want it just delete the column
d) To allow auto completion of cells you need to turn it on (File > Options > Advanced > Enable AutoComplete For Cell Values).
3. 'Rankings' sheet can help supervisors... supervise

A word on teams. As a fun little side competition, players can join teams. It's a person from each category (that have enough people signed up to allow multiple teams), and the combined scores of teams are ranked for an overall winning team, in addition to the individual medalists in each category. No prizes or such, except the eternal bragging rights. Creative team names are highly encouraged!

IV. Sportsmanship: Updates and Final Scores
Do not post any qualifiers found during the MFO!
Here or in the Item Find Thread. Post as many high runes, cool charms, non-qualifying drops (that Tyrael’s from the random boss pack from the Throne Room for our Baal runners). But don’t spoil the surprise and competition by giving too much detail about your progress or likely score!

Updates and Final Scores. In the interest of sportsmanship, please send a private message to your category supervisor (the “Start a conversation” option) with updates of your progress and total score at the following three points in the process:
- The first three days (Friday and first weekend), until the end of Sunday, August 18
- The first seven days, until the end of Thursday, August 22
- Final score as soon as you can (but no later than 12 hours after you finish). Please just send it when you finish playing for the MFO!

These should be in the following format:
Code:
Title: SPF - MFO results
Category: A85
Forum name: Grape
Asteron's Iron Ward 27.8
Ravenlore 14.6
Crown of Ages 10.7
Windforce 9.3
Windforce 9.3 (example of a duplicate find)
Total 71.7
For the final score, please also include the ATMA/GoMule readout for your top 5. If you quit or drop out, please send your area supervisor a PM saying so.

Seriously, Please Send Final Score as Soon as Possible. PM your score and ATMA/GoMule readouts of your top 5 to your area’s supervisor within 12 hours after the end of the MFO. There's always a few people who take a long time to do it, and it holds everything up. It takes literally less than 2 minutes to fire off your Final Update email, and it keeps all of us from waiting a day or longer for the results.

This time, please send the results in quickly, so the area supervisors can finish their lists and send them to me quickly, so I can put up the Results Thread quickly. When you finish running, please send the results right away.

*** I will supervise A85 and Pindle+, and I am happy to supervise Baal. (But I am also happy to let someone else volunteer to supervise Baal because I plan to enter in that category. I'll be running with untwinked 99er with limited MF, so I'm not really worried about the suspense being ruined if I end up knowing other's scores.) ***

V. SPF Trading Profile Needed to Participate (But It’s Easy to Create One!)
Trading profile is necessary due to tradition of winners getting the option of claiming items from others, as explained in the next section. Also, if you've been banned from trading and/or mp'ing then you will not be allowed to participate in the MFO.

It’s pretty straightforward to add a trading profile (here), as explained here (see Rule 4.7). A sample trader profile is here. (Note that I created it just to participate in MFO. It took about 5 minutes.)

Hopefully this summary makes it go even faster for others who otherwise wouldn’t participate due to not having a profile and feeling it’s too complicated (which I can relate to for sure).

But, in the end, 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.

You should add your trade tag with hyperlink to your trade profile (see sign-up post below for examples). Per @maxicek you should list the version you actually will be running in for MFO, rather than all versions listed in your trade profile. The purpose is that if it comes to items changing hands, we know compatible versions are being used. So, as an example, "1.00-1.14d SC/HC FAM" doesn’t help there, and the sign-up should list "1.14d SC" if that's the version used for MFO character.

VI. Prize Distribution
Part of the tradition is that MFO medalists get to claim items from other lower ranked entrants within the same category. You don't have to claim anything, and I don’t believe anyone has claimed for at least the last 2 MFOs. But it’s part of the tradition, so I’ve maintained it. Please give if you're asked.

1st Place - picks 3 items from ANY other entrants (max 1 per entrant)
2nd Place - picks 2 items from ANY other entrants ranked below you (max 1 per entrant)
3rd place - picks 1 item from ANY other entrants ranked below you

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

Here are some previous “good sportsmanship” suggestions. These won't be enforced 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.

Good luck and HAVE FUN!!! HYPE!!!!

Note: your category isn't final until signups close and the MFO starts.
Note 2: I'll update this post as more people sign up and as soon as MFO starts so there is one easy-to-find list of runners.

Updated to reflect sign-ups as of 8/16/19

Wow, only 2 weeks to go! Will be running with my untwinked 99er, with limited MF like @PhineasB. The goal is really more levels, but hopefully I'll find some nice stuff as well.

I probably won't have much time, as we are only coming back from holiday on August 17 and we plan to do a lot of cycling / hiking with the kids afterwards as well, but my PitBarb is ready for the action. It needs some more testing, but I think he has a good map, so he's ready to go.

Edit: forgot to mention ... my plan is to continue my Pitruns after the MFO if I don't get enough time in, just to see which results I'd get. Not sure how much in total, somewhere between 10 - 20 hours.

I'm very tempted to "take it easy" and run pindle with my newish zerk barb, but I'm gonna commit to being a big boy and run pits, unless I just cannot find a map before tourney. Goal for the tourney is to get in 20 hours, but similar to T72, if I come short of this, I will finish 20 hours after the tourney for fun.

Also guys, unless I'm crazy, it's 3 weeks before the tourney starts, not 2 :p

Also what's with the intermediate updates being required? No big deal, but I wasn't expecting that.

This is as good an excuse as any to get some XP for my lvl 97 Zon at Baal. I'm going to aim for 20 hours and hopefully not fall too short of that!

Good luck everyone and may all your drops be GREEN AND GOLD (though slightly less so than mine)

Kind of a bad timing for my untwinked Pally, who will likely need to be running either Diablo or Nihlathak when MFO starts. Well then I guess I'll have to go the competitive route for this one! Probably Pit Berserker or maybe some take on an AT Barb similar to what @Gripphon tested recently.

You guys can have all the green drops you want, I'll take the golden ones. :p
