Winter MFO 2011 Sign-Up And Running Thread

Once again, it's time for a Magic Find Olympics! After talking to jjscud, I'll be hosting this time. Don't worry, things look pretty much the same :)

Start Time: Friday February 11th 2011, 00:01 Local Time
End Date: Sunday February 20th 2011, 23:59 Local Time


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 sign up 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/GoMule 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: Fabian

AT
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
...

-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 February 21. Please please try to get this done as soon as possible, preferably right after you finish running. This is so we can get the results thread up as quickly as possible.

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.

Also, if you are 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.


That's it! Let the trash talking begin :) If you have any questions or comments, you can PM me here or email me at fabbe _ sjoblom @ hotmail . com

Very excited about getting this show on the road, hope you all are too :)

I will take this opportunity to be the first to announce that I will crush all competition. Thank you for understanding.

Alrighty!

This will be my first contest, but I feel that I am capable enough now to possibly put forth a winning effort! I would like to run in the Ancient Tunnels category. Thanks Fabian for putting this on and I look forward to the competition!

Re: Winter MFO 2011 Sign-Up And Running Thread

Depending on future RL events, I may not be able to do as many runs as I'd like, but I'll certainly give it the ol' college try! Ancient Tunnels for me. I'm available for a team, but keep in mind that my run total might not be as high as some others.

@Fabian: I've never participated in an MFO before, but I've kept track of them and I know what it takes to be a supervisor. If you find yourself looking for someone to pick up the job, I'm more than willing. Also, triple post? :nono: :p

Re: Winter MFO 2011 Sign-Up And Running Thread

Well, I'm pretty sure I'll be busy that week, and I don't really see myself parting with a self-found DW, for instance. I guess being the only child will do that to, well, me.

I would like to wish good luck to everyone! May the best ones win.

Re: Winter MFO 2011 Sign-Up And Running Thread

Well that's certainly no fun Nagisa :( You're a living legend in area running land, I was hoping to have you in the running.

In other news, there are two spots open for a super-serious* team consisting, so far, of me (Pit) and jimsfriend (AT). We're looking for a Pindle competitor and a Baal competitor. The audition process will work as follows: Send me a PM and describe in 50 or fewer words why YOU would be a great addition to our team! Also rate yourself from 1-10 in each of the following areas; Time available during the MFO, How fun you are to chat with during mindless hours of running, How big a Harry Potter fan you are and, for the Pindle category only, Are you running with a Barb? (Yes 9 points, No 2 points) This questionnaire may or may not be largely ignored, but might help us make our decision!


* This is only partially true

Re: Winter MFO 2011 Sign-Up And Running Thread

Another AT entry... may potentially switch over to Pindle if the groups end up too unbalanced. Probably not team-worthy material, given the crowd in the tunnels and my likely lower run count. Good luck out there!

Hmm, curious whether I'll AT or whether I'll Pindle. I'll think on this one. Pindle's just so easy to get burnt out on...

Re: Winter MFO 2011 Sign-Up And Running Thread

Oooh, I've waited for a chance to participate in one of these. I'm going to sign up for Baal, hoping that it'll finally motivate me to finish a large amount of runs since I usually limit myself to the easier runs.

I'm also putting myself as available for a team, but since I don't really know anyone around here well, I'm perfectly fine with being the last one picked :p

(Also, can't wait to see who's wanting to compete against Fabian in the pits after seeing all the chatter about his optimized WW barb :D)

Re: Winter MFO 2011 Sign-Up And Running Thread

For the record LC, Kimppi, jimsfriend and I have been working on a Berserk Barb that me and Kimppi (I believe) will be running with instead, and I like him significantly better :) That doesn't mean that my cocky trashtalking won't land me squarely in last place though, of course.

Well, I figured the Pit would be more crowded than it is at present :p I guess your opposition just hasn't gotten around to signing up yet. 'Zerker sounds interesting, all this Barb talk might inspire me to take my Frenzier for a few swings at Baal!

I suppose it makes since that AT would be the most crowded, seeing as to how it's the easiest area (well, Pindle can't drop every item, so easiest area that drops every item).
