The Worldstone King Tournament

Tournament name: The Worldstone Keep King Tournament
Duration: 3 weeks
Start: 26.6, 00:00
Finish: 16.7. 23:59
Target area: WSK all 3 levels + Throne room
Items farmed for scoring system: runes and elite items

Tournament idea is to combine both runefinding and MFO-ing at the same time in not so popular WSK area which is arguably most diverse area in the game.

Rules:

1. Areas we target are WSK 1-3 + Throne Room without Baal's waves or Baal himself. You can target those areas in any way you like, for example hitting only WSK 1 and 2 all the time, or only WSK 3 or all 4 areas... it is up to you.

2. Items we farm for scoring system are Hel+ runes and elite items.

3. We divide our playing time into sets of which each lasts maximum of 20 hours like on RFO or RFL. You are not allowed to start a new set before you finish the previous one.

4. Every set is scored individually, you can do as many sets as you want to, but you must choose which set is about to be scored for you. For example, in set 1 you did tremendously good with runes but bad with items, and in set 2 you did the opposite. Now you decide whether you want first set or second set to be scored for you.

5. Screenshots of runes are not required, but I assume people would like to see them anyway. You are encouraged to post your findings...

6. ... but only after each round is finished! Don't post your qualifiers when the round is still going. You are warmly welcome to discuss your other findings however. But remember: Don't post your qualifying runes nor elite items!

7. Cubing runes into higher ones is not allowed. In other words don't cube Pul runes into Um to get a higher score.

9. Versions allowed: 1.13-1.14.


Scoring system

Each reported set will be scored 2 times: once for items, once for runes. Only top 5 are scored.

Rune scoring system is the same as it was on Zodthon with these values:
Hel 0.5
Io 0.7
Lum 0.9
Ko 1.3
Fal 1.7
Lem 2.6
Pul 3.4
Mal 5.0
Um 5.1
Gul 7.1
Ist 7.5
Ohm 10.1
Vex 10.6
Sur 13.7
Lo 15.1
Jah 18.3
Ber 20.5
Cham 27.5
Zod 71.8

So, there will be standard placement with sets according to their runescore.

Second scoring is for items and here we will use typical MFO scoring tables for a85: Here

Then, second placement will be determined with items only.

After that, both scoring lists will have assigned points according to placement. Top 10 places get points.

1. 12 points
2. 10 points
3. 8 points
4. 7p
5. 6p
6. 5p
7. 4p
8. 3p
9. 2p
10. 1p

Points are combined from both tables to have final table with final score based on those points, Maximum amount of points player can have is 24 obviously, if he scores first in both scoring tables.


Tiebreaker for both scoring tables:
1. player with higher scoring item/rune in top 5 wins the placement
2. we check second highest scoring item and so on
3. If 1 and 2 fail to distinguish players, then they share the placement together

Tiebreaker for final table:
1. player who found higher scoring ITEM wins the placement
2. if highest scoring items are the same for all players, then we check highest scoring RUNE instead
3. if runes are also the same, then we check second highest scoring ITEM
4. if that fails, we check second highest scoring RUNE and so on...

Let the theorycrafting begin!

I will tentatively sign up, though I doubt I'll even come close to finishing a set. If nothing else it might net me a level or two for a character, so that's always fun!

That's why I put 3 weeks in, so we can all enjoy the summer and possibly finish at least 20 hours! And not so long ago we were doing 40 hours in 2 weeks... We are getting old, or saving energy for MFO haha.

my wrists hurt too quickly these days... what's the safest, easiest thing I can play? Other than fishymancer. Keep in mind I have access to beta CtA but also don't want to die since HC :p

edit: how many things can a fire drood kill/not kill? I still haven't made one and AnalFissure is waiting in 1.07 for use ;)

Yay, been mostly away from playing d2 for a few weeks. This will be a nice coming back!

Definitely interesting to hear some theorycrafting!

Some dual element sorc could be good at this, possibly trapsin, poison/summon nec, hammerdin?

I will join in if I can figure out getting GoMule (I believe that it does work and I'm just a dinosaur) and 1.13d to function on my MacBook, but with a digital version of D2 I'm not having any success :p

Alternatively, I will do as much as I can in the 36 hours I will have before I leave on 28/6/17! :)

Things to do:

hunt a superior Matri base in 1.09

maybe one day :p

Hmm, I'm certain Fishyzon will kill really really well. Only question is that can she keep up the pace of the faster teleporters? I guess one might want to go for boss packs mostly after all.

Well, I guess this is as good time as any to come back from hiatus. This overlaps nicely with SGDQ 2017, so if I'm going to spend some time at the computer watching speedruns, I might as well kill some monsters while doing so. Count me in.

I actually launched D2 first time in almost three months a moment ago, in order to remind me how well good old BlizzSorc fares in WSK. During the first run, this happened:

I'll take that as a promising sign.

Definitely in for this one. Even though my FO/FB Sorc probably isn't the best candidate, I am gonna throw her into the fire. I will update the table when I get home.

Oh, it's finally here. I should probably get to work on finishing up my Sorc's gear. And maybe roll a CTA that gets greater than 1 BO. And find that Infinity base since I'm likely to get bored and stop playing unless I'm lightning. (I hate Blizzard. The skill, not the company)

Looks like it's time to build a fishyzon :)

I really appreciate the relaxed format, I'll probably be away from my computer for a week, but will still be able to run those 20 hours.

It's ok to clear the minions and Baal if I don't account the drops?

I'll probably do at least one set with my trapper, maybe shoot for a second set with a sorc of some sort.

I'm 99% sure not in on this due to not enough time and weather being far too good still.

Good luck to those that will run !!!

Um, yes, please!

My trapsin will get some time, along with my blizz sorc (the non-99er). I may also dust off a Fishyzon, who I think could be the powerhouse I hoped she'd be now that I have better gear.

Also, I really like the three-week window, instead of two weeks. This makes it more likely I'll finish a 20-hour set.
