Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

23rd??? I thought I'd place more respectably than that. Does this mean I get to keep whining about my drops? Nah, I'll leave the pity-party behind - and maybe next time I'll crack the top 20. :p

Congrats on the nice items everyone, and thanks bassano for the fun.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Wow, congrats to everybody for the great items and especially to the guys at the top. I'm sort of surprised with where I placed - I was quite pleased with the items I ended up with and it's really impressive to me that 6 people managed to have better scores than I did. Is a little bit disheartening, though, that one of the items I was really hoping for (Death's Fathom) wasn't found by *anybody* during the course of the tourney. Almost puts a damper on me wanting to continue to run AT since that's the item I want most of all right now (and yes, I know that that basically means I'll find two tyrael's and a zod before I find it :rolleyes:).

Even though I wasn't one of the top finishers, I'm still extremely pleased with the items I got, especially the Griffon's (+13/-20) and the Arkaine's (4%ED away from a perfect one). Also quite amazed that between both characters I only ended up with 2 (two!?) IK mauls...I would've expected to have ~10 or so out of ~80 qualifiers. I'll try to do a little write up for the qualifiers later on, and hope others do that, too.

Thanks, again, bassano for the tourney! I had a great time and came away with some fantastic items. Congrats to Machete, TheReadMenace, cius, krovak and everybody else for their great finds.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Wow, that is a lot of nice finds! Well done, everyone!
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Grats everyone on the great finds! Ecstatic that I found the highest scoring item for the tourney even if it is by just a 0.1 point margin :whistling:

Anyways, will post all my qualifiers in the IFT.

My email is michaelaza(at)gmail(dot)com

I will stick that one in my newly made trophys stash!

Thanks for hosting an awesome tournament bassano!

PS: My new poison necro, Cyanide, is now questing in Lut Golien at level 20ish eagerly waiting to equip his new Deaths web.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Ohh, so i'm tenth at the end....

Its not so bad position as it may seem, because my barb won Pit minicontest and he was defeated only by sorcs in AT, so he also won between non soso chars...

Still not as good as i hoped...

Thanks Bassano for hosting this tourney and congrats to the winners 👍
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Holy moly...26th! Ok, I did bad, but - that bad?

Anyways, congratulations everyone - some awesome drops there:thumbup:

Thanks bassano for hosting this tournament - I hope I'll be more competitive next time :)

Oh, btw: my qualifiers were:

Bul-Kathos' Sacred Charge
Demon's Arch
Eschuta's Temper
Hellrack
Hellslayer
Ondal's Wisdom
Sandstorm Trek
Windhammer
Immortal King's Stone Crusher (#65)

The only item I didn't already have at least 15 times in my stashes is the Hellslayer (the new-found being my 15th), so maybe I should host a giveaway sometime in the near future...on the other hand: one can never have too many spare items for HC - you never know when the next deeds screen is going to happen 😉

Overall I'm not disappointed at all though, since I did find some ethereal uniques to improve my perfect ethereal grail score :)
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

WOW, completely amazed at coming 1st, especially since I was a bit lazy and put off finishing until the deadline (story of my schooling:whistling:). Even so it was great fun, and bassano thanks again for hosting. Congrats to everyone who participated, if you enjoyed yourself then thats what matters most.

P.s. I would probably trade all my top5 (except maybe the Griffon's:wink:) for a measly Tal's ammy. Ah well, the search goes on.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

I will send my qualifiers later whan I will be back from university. Most interesting moment for me was uniqeu sacred armor drop but never mind next time will be tyrael :D
I not expected too so many TC87 drops from all players beacuse first 10-15 players have very high score when it is during 20 hours
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Congrats everyone on great finds 👍.

It was really nice MFtourney, thanks for hosting that bass.

No grailer for me, but still I've found quite nice items during this tourney, so I'm very satisfied :).
4th and 9th - not bad!:)

It's a shame that both the golden scourge and the golden legendary mallet I found turned to be the more common versions. Both of them were grailers, though, so I should stop complaining.

I am especially happy about Mang's and Griffon's, obviously, but also some qualifiers that are not in the top 5 were nice to see. Off the top of my head I have found 3x Reaper's Toll, a Stormshield and an ethereal Demon Limb.

On the other hand, I have not found Tal's Armor, which I was hoping to get. I already have 2 amulets(1 found in this tourney), 2 perfect orbs and many other set pieces, but the absence of armor is still preventing me from making a Tal's sorceress.

I will post the readouts of the top items in the IFT when I get to ATMA.

Congrats everyone on your finds and kudos to bassano for hosting this awesome tourney:thumbup:
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Congrats on the top 3. At least I'm not last :p Just might do a pure blizzard sorc for pure AT running , the top 5 item lists are giving me inspiration.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Congratulations to the winner and others as well. The Windforce is making me :cloud9:
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

6:th place - not bad :)
I somehow knew I would have needed that Mangs/DW/Astreon's/Lash/Schaefer's but I'm happy since I reached my goal of 50 points and for getting 2 grailer's (Griffon's and Steel Pillar) of which Griffon's has eluded me so long...

Obligatory haul pics:
Uniques
Sets (yes, 4 Tal's armors, sorry krovak :p)
I'll post readouts to IFT shortly. I was a little disappointed of those Giant Threshers since I now have found 5 of them whereas not a single one of those golden Thunder Mauls :(

I had fun running AT, nice change from LK and Baal running. I will definetely run it more in the future.

Gongratulations to top5 and to other runners for their nice finds!
And thanks to bassano for organising this fun tourney! 👍
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Congratulations everyone on their drops... look at all those Griffon's!

I used up all my luck in the Mephathlon :) I look forward to the next MF tourney.

Grats to the top 5 and gieb those nice items!
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Yay, congrats everyone! Not surprised I placed quite low, just can't compete with all you Blizzies :) Some really nice finds there though, very jealous of all those Griffons. Cool prizes from bassano too.

I'm at work now and can't post a list of everything I found in WSK, but the item I was probably happiest about finding wasn't even in my top 5, it was a pair of eth Sandstorm Treks. Hehe. Although the Shadow Dancers were fun to find too.

Thanks again bassano for the tournament, was my first one in the SPF and I definitely enjoyed it. Grats again to the winners! 👍

edit: prices sent when you recieve mail pls write me or write it here thanks
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Now I want to complain. A lot:) But then again, I got the entire Tal-Rasha set, so I am kind of happy. Started from scratch not long ago and had to run in this tourney with a 4 Ptopaz Armor and 3 Ptopaz Helm along my otherwise horribly weak equipment, so I am pretty happy the deeds screen didn`t come either.

Anyways. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to Bassano for hosting this. You rock!

If you have something capable of running Baal, he's your target. With ~300 MF I have something like 1:900 odds of finding it. Those odds are low enough that it shouldn't be too long before you find the armor (I've found 3 in the ~500-750 runs that I've made with BBIV).
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

I'm really surprised I fell into second place! Let's see, I'd like to thank the academy, my parents, the gods, and of course all of you!

My overall goal was to break 40 points, which I surpassed within the first twelve hours. The golden Sacred Armor made me literally jump out of my seat; I was hoping for the same luck I had with my first golden Scourge, but it wasn't meant to be this time around. 😉 And when the Astreon's dropped in hour seventeen I knew immediately how rare it was and cared much less about my tournament score than scoring that item. In the end, I had said once before that I thought my score was going to be competitive, but I never thought it'd put me in the top three!

Overall, I'm psyched with how it all turned out. I'll post full read-outs of important stuff in the IFT, but here's the total qualifiers found just for giggles (from common to rare):

Code:
Immortal King's Stone Crusher x3
Dangoon's Teaching
Laying of Hands
Dark Adherent
Credendum x3
Natalya's Shadow
Sazabi's Cobalt Redeemer x2
Bonehew
Wizardspike
Shadow Killer
Windhammer x2
Viperfork
Gimmershred
Naj's Puzzler
Tal Rasha's Guardianship
Harlequin Crest
Cranebeak
Lacerator
Messerschmidt's Reaver
Veil of Steel
Boneshade
Demonhorn's Edge
Halaberd's Reign
Griffon's Eye
Templar's Might
Astreon's Iron Ward

Just call me Peter Pan's fairy friend in a jar filled with vinegar, 'cuz I'm pickled Tink! And bassano, that prize was completely unexpected... I figured they were going to be novelty prizes, not rare & useful items, AND socketed with a facet!?! It's too much, really. For both hosting this tourney and for the generous gift, thank you very much!!

Hope to see you all (and more) for the Pindlethon on 1/2/09!! 👋

To be honest, I didn't know whether I would enjoy this tournament much, because fast-running areas generally isn't my cup of tea. Now that the tourney is over, I can say that it has opened my eyes and it was very interesting to change my playstyle. I cannot say that I'm going to permanently adopt this style, but it's certainly going to be included in my MF activities.

As for results, I'm satisfied with my score and ranking; that's essentially where I expected to end up. I'm a bit disappointed with the items though, as none of my qualifiers were that interesting, and I also didn't find some much needed items such as Tal's Armor. However, this should be overshadowed by the fact that I found a Ber rune! I also obtained many grailers, and my sorceress went from level 92 to 94 in the process.

Thanks again Bassano for hosting, and everyone else for keeping my interest high! :)

Here are my qualifiers with the grailers highlighted:

Arachnid Mesh
Arioc's Needle (x2)
Baranar's Star
Bul-Kathos' Tribal Guardian (x2)
Dangoon's Teaching
Dark Adherent (x3)
Demon Limb
Djinn Slayer (x2)
Doombringer
Eschuta's Temper (x2)
Executioner's Justice
Flamebellow
Frostwind
Ghostflame
Griswold's Honor
Griswold's Valor

Harlequin Crest
Immortal King's Stone Crusher (x3)
Laying of Hands
M'avina's Caster
M'avina's Embrace (x2)
Marrowwalk
Natalya's Mark
Natalya's Shadow
Ormus' Robes

Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Complete list of my qualifiers with readouts is here. Honestly, all of the other items are nice, but I would've been well satisfied if that Griffon's had been my only qualifier. My light sorc has been itching for a barbecue. ;)

Thanks again, bassano, and I hope you (or somebody else) decide to hold another one of these in the not too distant future. For now, I'm also eagerly awaiting the Pindlethon.

Just a quick clarification, you mean the 2nd of January not the 1st of february? Hopefully I will have a blizz sorc ready to go for that tournament.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread



Yes, January 2nd '09 it is. At least, so long as Cygnus was telling the truth in the original tournament thread...! (darn international date rules; I can never keep them straight)

Sorry I never got my results in - real life rears its ugly head at the worst times...

I would have finished in the middle of the pack. I finished 16 hours, and was running for experience as much as drops. Level her into the early 90's, and she gets tougher every day.

My top 5:

1. Grandfather (247% ED!!) - 9.3
2. Gargoyle's bite - 9.3
3. Steel Pillar - 9.3
4. Spirit Ward - 8.1
5. Veil of Steel - 5.1

Total: 41.1 (~16th)

No grailers, but I'm loving the Grandfather, my other 2 were 152% and 183%, IIRC. I don't know why I find so many Gargoyle's bite, someday I'll find a use for it.

None of those were very exciting though. I did have a Pul and a Lum, and I had my best jewel ever:

Ruby Jewel of Fervor
Required Level: 58
Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
Item Level: 85
Fingerprint: 0x87fd6c5a
+40% Enhanced Damage
15% Increased Attack Speed

I am really hemming and hawing over what to put it in. I don't have a windforce, but am tempted to wait for one. Other possibilities include stormlash, upped 299% Ribby (I have one with a shael that could be taken out), and anything else you can think of... I'm somewhat tempted to go with the ribcracker because the level requirements of the others are so high, but I think I'll stew on it for a little longer. Any comments or suggestions are welcome...

Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Very nice jewel! I'd second the ribby. Only other advice I can think of is put it in something that you will use a few times. If you have just built 3 ribby characters and are bored with them then rather wait and put it in something else. Also doesn't off weapon ED work better or something? If that is the case then putting it into a helmet may be smarter.

Damned..I've planned another MF tourney and now i have to wait much more longer :crazyeyes:

Good luck with Pindlethon, not sure about my participation though :scratchchin:
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Never mind, I'm a moron.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

WOW, Tubbs. Way to get everyone's hopes up by posting, and therefore necro'ing, LAST YEAR'S results thread.

👍

It was funny. I saw my name in second place and I was stunned.
"WHAT?!?! There's NO way I got second this year!!!"
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Hahahahaha :)

I checked 3 mins ago and there was no result thread. Checked now and i see results with 4-page replies already. I was like ''WTF" :crazyeyes:
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Hahahaha I actually read the entire thread (again) too. :D Didn't realize till I read TRM's post.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Although I didn't compete, I had to read this thread. Started wondering what was going on when TRM announced the tourney for January09...
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Holy moly! Way to get everyone's blood pressure up, Tubba! 👍

And here I was thinking "yay! I'm not last!" ... then I noticed I didn't even find 5 qualifiers this time...:rolleyes:
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

I'm getting either senile, or blind. Sorry.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

I too read the entire thread with great interest, not understanding it was an old one. Good stuff :)
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Oh wow. ..

Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

I think we have a contender in the "bump/resurrect of the year" category. That was a good one. :D

Fortunately I remembered Machete's winning score from last year, so when I saw that I immediately checked the date of bassano's first post. So I was only fooled for ~5 seconds.
Re: Area85 Tournament - results Thread

Hehe, I was like "WTF" when I saw that the winner had a score lower than mine... then I realized.

Son of a... I was already writing the whine about being left out and doublechecked if the mail was sent. :D

Yes, goes to show I shouldn't post right after I wake up.
