This tournament has already ended. It was originally started by Hrus on Apr 7, 2006. The last post was made on May 6, 2006.

Pindlethon 2

PINDLETHON2 - MF tourney
As promised - I am going to host another one of those. It's not the 2nd Pindlethon tourney all-time, but it's 2nd hosted by me.
Previous Pindlethon

RULES:
1) Count your Pindleskin runs
2) The Tourney ends for you if you have done 2000 Pindle runs or...
3) The Tourney ends Apr-30-2006 local time midnight.
4) You can use any player settings.
5) The winner is the one who gets the most votes from other participants for the best items (depends on usefulness and rarity)
6) For the statistics purposes all found elite uniques and sets must be kept and reported at the end of the tourney as well as jewelry with qlvl higher than 38 (SoJ and better) and Tal-Rasha's Adjudication amulet (qlvl 26).
7) The tourney winner can choose 1 item from each participant from the report list unless it is protected.
8) Each participant can protect 1 item at will from his report from being chosen as a prize for the winner.
9) Even if you don't finish 2K runs in time, you are still obliged to post your results (and the winner can choose from your items). If you will not do so, I reserve the right to not accept your entrance in any future tourney I will host.
10) After you finish 2K runs or until the deadline, you will post your best 5 items with full Atma readouts.It could be qualifiers, runes, rares, magic items, whatever you choose. Post their Atma readouts. The voting for winner will be based on these 5 items. Then post the list of all your qualifiers (preferably sets, uniques and jewelry separatly). Atma readout isn't obligatory, but specify if the item is eth. Then post the other notable items you have found, if you want to. (Some people grabs all uniques and sets, so they can post them). If you post the item, it can be chosen as a prize for winner (unless it's a rune).
Only items from Pindleskin and his minions count, not the items from corpses in the garden.
11) Only accepted mods are 1.10,1.11, and variations RWM, RRM. FE mod is not acceptable, and also drop mods and other. Only legit characters.
12) Tourney is starting NOW!


Well, that's simple, the one change in rules from the previous MFO is only 1 protected item. So you will probably not loose a stormlash :wink3:, but be prepare to loose the other goods.
The new rule is #9. I didn't like in previous Pindlethon that some people did 1K runs, then disappeared without a word.

I'm in!! Question about top 5 items tho: It can be any S/U/Rare/Magic items , jewels, runes? Then we have to post it separately according to sets/uniques/jewelry? How do we do that?

I'm in! I need another contest to find some more 1337 itamz for my grail.

@Hrus: Could you post an example of how you would like us to post our finds, for clarification?

I shouldn't but it's only 15 hours roughly. Week-end is saved.

@Tracul:
just choose your top 5 items, type doesn't matter, it can be runes whatever.
These will be used for final voting.
Other finds are for grabbing from winner. You have to report at least all elite S/U's and jewelry as stated in the rules.

example from previous Pindlethon is here

Yep, 11%, and my runner is lvl 25. I've got to progress a bit but I should have time to reach Hell pindle and do the runs before the end of the month. (and hopefully add a bit of Mf in the process)

joining again.

The main trick to understand is that the "code" tag makes a fixed width display area. The problem is that the editor is not fixed width. I usually just look for someone with the same number of characters in their name and copy their line and then make an edit or two from there. Just remember that in fixed width you always have to replace the same number of characters. When I changed the MF from 600+ to 11 I actually typed space, one, one, space. So that each character was replaced.

Some prefer to copy the table out to notepad and hit the insert key.

I don't have much in the way of MF, but I planned to start running pindle anyway so it doesn't hurt 😃

Doubt I will manage 2k runs, though


edit: forgot to count my nagelring in my MF%

i might do a paralel with unique runners to break the monotony so to speak, so why not


note that the exact N# of mf will be added after counting it obviously
