Mini-MFO The Hunt for the SoJ

Sorry it took so long, but life is unpredictable.

Short, short version of rules:
Kill Andariel over the weekend and keep all unique/set jewelry. Add points to see who wins.


The rules:

0 (the implied rule) - If thou reads this, THOU MUST BY ALL MEANS TAKE PART ON IT!

1- Start Friday (the 10th) whenever you want and ends 60 hours later (2 1/2 days).
Examples:
Start 8:00 AM Friday, End 8:00 PM Sunday
Start Noon Friday, End Midnight Sunday
Start 7:59 PM Friday, End 7:59 AM Monday

2- No subscription fee! The winner(s), there may be two, will add to the Mini-MFO trophey case.

2.1- SPF Members only. As a member of the SPF, thou must fulfill at least one of the following pre-requisites:

- Post an intro thread
- Frequent EMB
- Blame Durf

2.3- The categories are Hell Andariel and Nightmare Andariel. Thou shalt clearly state which one(s) thou competest at by posting it properly at this thread.

3- Thou shalt kill Andariel in your category(ies) until thy eyes melt, and horde thy spoils.

4- Thou shalt NOT post your findings prior to the ending.

5- Thou shalt, when it is over, send to jjscud at yahoo.com the following:

- Thy forum name.

And for each category:

- Thy character info (class, build, level, %MF).
- ATMA readings of thy 5 rarest findings from Andariel during the valid period, containing all item information, including - but not limited to - fingerprints. Only set and unique rings, amulets and charms are valid entries, so thou knowest.
- Thy total points, added properly as explained below.

5.1- Thy info MUST be sent up to 36 hours after the end of the competition.

6- The competitor who gets the highest score wins. Rarity shall be measured by a list for each category where each valid item is followed by a number that indicates how rare it is (the bigger the number the rarer the item). Add the value of thy five rarest findings to get to your final score for each category you play in. Do NOT mix different categories!

6.1- If a tie occurs, the competitor who found the most SoJs wins

6.2- On a second tie, rarest find unties, then second, and so forth up to the 5th.

6.3- If the tie persists, then it is a draw.

7- No items shall be claimed from winners at this edition. Finder's keeper's, if thou preferest.

8- Thou shall NOT identify the items thou intendest to apply to thy victory. ATMA is reserved to give thee the pleasures of thy finding, not Deckard Cain. IDed items willl NOT be accepted as valid entries.

8.1- Optional rulings shall be reserved for MAC users and other special cases.

9- Doubts, subscriptions and further suggestions shall be posted in this thread for everybody's knowledge.

10- Thou wilt have fun!

11- Also, bragging rights to the player that finds the most Carthan's Seals.

What will it take to win? Here's a link to the first Hunt for the SoJ.

I think I will join, but I have to blame durf, because I don't fulfill the 1st or 2nd subscription pre-requisities.

I am not sure what category, I think I have to go through my stashes if I really need something that Hell Andy can drop and NM can't. Even Hell Andy can't drop Ormus Robe (blizz Ormus is on top of my to-find list along with HRs and grailers) :scratch:

EDIT: And chance of wining such a rare Personalized Trophy is motivating to me.

Why don't we just quit with this, it's just silly. Also, I won't be participating, as I don't like the rule about not getting other peoples items.

I do however wish every participant some luck, after all, it 'll be needed.

That rule is to prevent cheated items, no?

I would join but I've got no time! College inscriptions and all x.x

Sorry Hrus, the winner gets to add to the Trophey Case, not take from it.

Your choice of course, but I've had enough of all winners passing on items, and all the mods just make this a bigger mess.

Edit: Oh, and I will of course be joining, I haven't decided if Dara will defend her title in NM or if I will run a new char in Hell.

It seems most people around here don't need any incentive for MF type tourneys. Almost all prizes are usually turned down so I'm just skipping that whole mess. The Trophey that the winners will contribute can be anything they like, a cracked sash, something from the tourney, i.e. a carthan's or manald heal, or something of value, its entirely up to the winner. I only ask that they do personalize it.

What exactly is "ATMA's rarity list". I can't seem to find it anywhere within ATMA.

Under ATMA you select Utility | Drop Calculator | 1.10

And then you can set it up to show drop by monster and select Andariel (Boss, Hell or NM) and the items you want to view. Carthan's is the most common jewelry piece at 1/169 so it gets 1 point, all other rarities are divided by 169 to get their points.

I'm in for NM Andy. Hmm. I guess that means I need make a MF character that isn't restricted in their runs. :laugh:

It's lists calculated based on the odds given in the drop calculator for ATMA. (ATMA doesn't actually make the list.)

Well, my wife just reminded me we're going to her parent's house for the weekend. So I guess I'm pulling out. Sorry about that!
