BINGO - The Tournament!

In honor of my 1,000th post, I hereby pull the trigger on a sweet tourney idea. Originally posted by mwille back in April (linky) this tourney provides a bit of MFO-style action in a BINGO card format! I think you'll like it.

For those of you who might not know how to play BINGO, here's a helpful link. Basically, you need to make a straight line of 5 spaces horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. The "FREE" space is just that: free. Consider it as though you've already found that item.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The current rules are as follows:

1) cards are posted, tourney begins
2) someone posts BINGO, tourney ends
3) mule is verified as a winner, announcement is made
4) everyone posts their "card" i.e. the items that occupied spaces on the card, in list format, along with any mods used
5) winner chooses 5 items, that way he can choose from modded/vanilla users as he/she wishes
6) mules are sent to the winner, along with full ATMA posting for the 5 items, to keep with SPTF rules governing item exchange

Posting your "card" would look like this:
unique:
raven claw
frostburn
manald heal
saracen's chance
bonesnap

set:
mavina's true sight
IK stone crusher
guillaume's face
Whereas the five items chosen by the winner would look like this:
Guillaume's Face
Winged Helm
Defense: 217
Durability: 32 of 40
Required Strength: 115
Required Level: 34
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 82
Fingerprint: 0x87cf292a
+15 to Strength
+120% Enhanced Defense
30% Faster Hit Recovery
35% Chance of Crushing Blow
15% Deadly Strike

Mule sent!
With an appropriate "Mule recieved, thank you!" post by the winner.

This way, if you find a Windforce and a Raven Claw, you can use the Raven Claw for the unique bow space, and keep your Windy. Likewise, you can use the IK maul instead of the armor for the IK set space. Of course, if the only flail you find is a Stormlash...you better win.


This starts Friday at 12:00 Noon CST.


It will go until someone yells BINGO, at which time the winner and ONLY the winner sends his mule to *@*.com for verification. Once I verify that there is a winner, then everyone post up their findings in the format listed above. Don't post your findings before I say the game is over. Please list game version and any mods used. The winner then gets to pick 5 items of his choice, which will be emailed directly to the winner. Full ATMA postings are required to be posted in the public forum for the five items transferred. Once those emails have been sent and recieved, BINGO will start again with a fresh set of cards!

Any questions? You have one day to ask them. Then, GAME ON.



/end 1k post. SPF, you've been beautiful to me, and I love you all.

Dang... I've been waiting for this tourney since the first idea was posted those couple months ago. But I'm already spreading myself too thin in D2. Besides, this is also running at the exact same time as the MFO, which makes me think that this tourney might not get the attention it deserves.

Nevertheless... I gotta be in. 1.11 RRM (might as well call me RWM, too, since I'm not vanilla)

Do we need to make new characters, or can we use already made characters? Plus, should there be a couple different divisions between contestants, therefore creating different prize stashes? I doubt that a 1.10 vanilla SPFer would accept any 1.11 RWM items.

Can't wait to start... along with my other FIVE tourney characters. :badteeth:

Looks interesting to me, and as was said, works good in conjuction with the MFO.

But, how'd the bingo cards get determined? Seems some rows would be a lot easier to do than others, on the set card, for sure. I'd have to investigate the uniques more.

Anyhow, I'll give it a go.

The tourney is currently running!


To answer a few questions:

  • Yes, this goes well with the MFO. Just print out the cards and keep them handy as you run.
  • Yes, you can use any character or combination of characters. You don't need to roll a new one just for this, although you can if you like.
  • I will be running another one of these at a later date. So don't sweat the card order, timing, etc. This is not the last BINGO.
Everyone happy? Game on!

The idea is, its like the MFO. You start with an empty stash, and go magic finding. Anything you find from that point on is fair game for the BINGO cards.

We have a BINGO on the set card! The uniques card is still open. Please send the winning mule to *@*.com for verification. Everyone else, keep on hunting until the card is verified, thank you!


Edit: It's supposed to be a short game. You guys ever actually played BINGO? It ends in about fifteen minutes, tops. I will publish new cards, there will be several rounds of this. Relax.

GG saucy. I haven't got much for ya, sadly...

I must say, after the Uniques item card is won, I'll have to drop from this tourney idea for a while. As someone had a winning card in less than a day or two, I can't devote that much time to item running since I have 5 tourney characters to work on at once. Great idea, goober (and to whomever came up with the idea in the first place), but I can't focus on this ATM. Maybe I'll join again in the future once my characters die off.

Meanwhile, I'll be working on uniques for a minimal amount of time.

(Oh, goober... although it's not one of the sets mentioned on the card, I found a Hamosu's Adament (sp) set item. If/when someone yells BINGO on sets, should that item be included? Personally, I don't care if it is since I've already got three...)

The way the set card was listed, I thought you'd have to get all items of the set, which would actually make it a more normal length tourney. Of course, that didn't coincide with what looked like the extremly easy uniques card.

It would be a lot better and more fun if the set card was like I thought. Not sure what approach to take to extend the uniques card yet. Maybe specific unique items or exceptional or elite items only. Or, specific exceptional/elites.

I only played for a few hours last night, and had quite a few of my card boxes filled up, for example.

Saucy: You have won the Set card! Congratulations!

Everyone please post up your finds on the set card, along with version/mods used. You only need to post up items that pertain to actual spots on the card. Elmo, that means you don't need to post up your Haemosu's, because it's not a spot on that card.

Once everyone has posted their Set card finds, Saucy gets to pick 5 items. Please email those five items directly to Saucy, and post a full ATMA readout for those 5 items in this thread.

The Uniques card is still open! Everyone keep running for uniques!


Once both cards are completed, I'll shuffle the cards and we'll run again. I'm glad the rules are getting ironed out, this is a fun idea and meshes well with the MFO and other tourneys.

The first round of BINGO is over, everybody!


Everyone please post your cards at this time.

Hrus
takes five uniques of his choice!

Saucy takes five set items of his choice!


Thanks to all the participants! I will shuffle the cards, and post another BINGO once this one is all cleaned up.
