Even although the first place was almost set on stone after update number one - lol gripphon luck - this MFO was fun to watch on my side. A tight race for second place and lots of struggling in the middle of the table. If we don't count Fabian and scrcrw that didn't run much, everyone outside the top5 had only ten points separating them!

Grats everyone! You all beat Fabian! (shame on you scrcrw) So I guess everyone won...?

The king is dead! Long live the king!

Congratulations, Grip! Commiserations, Fabian.

At least you have something to run for again, Fabian. ;) ;p And I get pushed even further down on the all time list.

Holy golden Sacred Armors batman! Pharphis alone got as many this MFO as I've gotten all-time. O_O

Finally beat out maareek in an MFO. \o/ I admittedly stopped caring about anything other than getting a higher score than frozzzen after a couple days, what with the ultimate luckster going nuts on finds, but oh well. Glad to have only put in 30 hours or whatever.

Condolences to pharphis on those finds. <_<

Well, if beating out decrepit has-beens makes you happy, who am I to deny you that? (I'm pretty sure you're undefeated against me in competitions, anyway.) ;p

Well done to all the runners.

I was very pleased despite my late start. And in contrast to other MFOs my two top scorers landed first which was a great incentive. I did drop some cold skillers to pop on more MF at some point. It was certainly a nice change from Baal, although I do have to go prod him a few more thousand times.

Thanks to Fab for hosting and I'm looking forward to the next MFO. I agree that a few more categories would be nice and it would be fascinating to see how (if) a Trav category could be done.

Congrats Grip, nice score!

I vastly overestimated my interest in playing D2. At least rushing to AT with an untwinked sorc was somewhat fun...

Let me know if anyone wants to steal that hard-earned Baranar's Star. :)

Wow, and I was hoping for maybe 6th :p

I put in about 32.5 hours at just under 49 seconds per run. I never counted my bosspacks but if I had to guess it would be 4.5-5.5 avg.


I didn't find a SINGLE 9.3 and clearly nothing above 11. What a depressing lump of garbage aside from the griffon's eye (eth, and bad roll). I actually saw very little blue shards, unearthed wands, etc. :(

Well, at least I got to ~93.7 on my FoHer which I started about a week before the MFO and relearned how to play one :D
grail-2

edit: lots of TC3s, too

I almost made it the entire MFO without finding an IK maul... it finally dropped on run #~540 of the 555 runs I did. Found 2 Ravenfrosts all tournament - on back to back runs. And my best drop-then-hork would be finding BK Tribal Guardian and a Harold of Zakarum from the same boss pack (kept the HoZ).

As for loot, the only 2 items I have worth taking would probably be the Stormlash (poor roll though) and a good-roll Wolfhowl. Will show more readouts on request.:

I'm very happy with final result of this MFO. Not only score is sky-high and that I found my second Tyrael's and grailer Stormlash, I also managed to get 32 items for haul pic. Also this MFO was first MFO after which I don't feel sick of playing. What can I say, oooo happy day etc. My initial plan for this MFO was to chill out and run here and there, playing no more than 30 hours total. But game had other plans for me.

First day of MFO, let's start. BAM, Darkforce Spawn from champion pack. Good start, DS was my best item I barely got last MFO. Let's continue playing. BAM. Zakarum Shield from champion pack. Oooh, we are talking about very good start here. BAM. Blood Spirit. Good good. BAM. Diadem dropped, with amazing roll as well, 1 off perfect. Ok ok, I get it, game wants me to play so I did. Before the midnight, BAM! Sacred Armor from champion pack. It's Tyrael's Might! First day ended, score was over 100 already. I decided I definitely won't play "only" for 30 hours, I'll play more to collect items for decent haul pic. As much as I was unhappy with poor luck of last MFO (only 13 haul pic items after 45 hours of playing, lol), this MFO started crazy beyond belief.

Second day of MFO, let's start. Few hours nothing, and then... BAM! Unearthed Wand... from champion pack. I also checked first two facets I found during those two days. Both perfect, one 5/-5 lite and second 5/-5 poison. What did I do to deserve this much luck? Oh I know, its Nulios fault! I've been using charm he gave me and his crafted amulet, those two items are totally filled with luck. Thank you Nulio.

Third day of MFO. Scourge dropped. It's Stormlash, grailer! Its time to send first update with score of 127 after 3 days of MFO. Crazy, right? I had unique opportunity to get another 27 pointer till the end of MFO for achieve even more epic score, so I really played for it. Rest of the days were pretty quiet, haul pic items dropped etc. I knew I'll have very hard time upgrading score at this point, obviously. But, I got second Darkforce Spawn from a champion pack in 7th day. At this point only 5 items could improve my score, so I really didn't expect on getting another high scorer to do it, but I played and hoped for a miracle. It didn't happen, but who cares.

As end result, my top 4 items dropped from champions, they are item level of 87. Crazy, right? Stormlash is level ** screwing statistics on that part.

During MFO I kept my eye on my first MFO ever in winter 2013. when I ran Pindle with zerker. I wanted to have more haul pic items now (24 needed), also wanted to have more efficient running overall if we include total number of bosspacks killed. Since Pindle can be compared with 2 bosspacks, and I killed him 13200 times with 54% hork, I calculated number of runs I have to do to beat my pindle zerker from that MFO. Number of Pit runs needed is cca 3300, so I set my goal to that. I didn't include % magic find, but my pindle zerker had less than my current pit zerker anyway. Possibly kind of stupid goals, but they kept me going.

Died 2 times during MFO, but still managed to level up my zerker to 95 so I'm quite happy with that.

Here are two haul pics. 32 9.3+ items and some goodies.






[highlight]Relevant numbers[/highlight][highlight][/highlight]

I totally did approximately 3700-3750 Pit p1 runs in over 58 hours. 3650 runs were measured with run counter, but I also did warmup running and so on. I'm sure I did over 50 such runs outside run counter, since every time I did 2-5 warmup runs before starting run counter.


[highlight]Irrelevant (boring) numbers[/highlight][highlight][/highlight]

I have problems with run counter, it don't save my character, so I must run without closing run counter to have numbers. I screenshoted run counter every time I was done with running to save results this way. I have put them all at one image + one more to the side.




I lost screenshot of additional 315 runs to whatever reason. I possibly accidentally overwrited it. Anyway based on 3335 runs I have screenshot of I will estimate time spent on doing those 315 runs as well to calculate total time invested into MFO.

Runs done: 3650
Avg running time: 56.454 s
Estimated time invested in MFO: 57 hours 15 minutes

In the end, if I include 50-100 runs I did to the side of run counter, total time of playing is above 58 hours and total runs done 3700-3750.

My map has average number of bosspacks of 8.03 per run, based on 950 testings I did. Lets say real map's average is 8 bosses and lets say I did 3700 runs, this means I killed approximately 29600 bosses. Or, more precisely, 20% of those are champion packs I counted as regular bosspack which is not entirely accurate thing to do. 55% hork on top of that gives estimated number of bosses "killed" as 45880.

For those of you who are familiar with my SPF Hall Of Records thread, including the fact I'm using 777/657 MF and assuming I killed 8 bosses per run at average, my MFO efficiency was 4.553 sec/bosspack, or 1.591 fabians. Numbers are only for fun since there are too many assumptions, but I wanted to see how well can zerker perform at MFO nevertheless.

Congratulations Gripphon! Insane results! Any of my drops couldn't even fit in your top5. Poor phaphis three golden sacred armours and non of them was Tyrael's.

I run pit with poisonmancer. Made 881 p7 runs, total time spent 32,6hours. Average run time 2min15s, mostly watching tv at the same time. Annoying that it takes about 20s to load game. Huge disadvantage. Need to buy new computer for next MFO.

Best finds: 5/-5 fire facet, 12 skiller best lion branded of sust 30 life, 3frw 11cr sc, 13life 11lr sc, 15allres jewel, 15 ias 29lr jewel, 2 x Lo, ohm, 290 pgems.

Thanks to Fabian and Nulio for hosting this MFO and congratulations to Gripphon, that day 1 score was awesome.

I did 1400 pit runs and the drops were really bad (52.6 score). The week before the MFO I found a 26% Death's Fathom and Mang Song's so I guess next time I won't do practice runs :p

Here's my Verdungo's readout.

That luck is even more disgusting than I originally thought. Guess the game rewards people who actually play it more than twice a year.

Great writeup Grip, that's exactly the kind of thing I want to read from a winner. Except that it should be written by me, but I think we can overlook that this time. ;p Awesome haul pics, as well. Sadly my Treks and Dungos were bad and Shadow Dancer was the only 10.7 item I didn't get. Feel free to ask for a trophy or something else if you don't use all your picks on others (or even if you do, for that matter). Grats again, plz teach how to luck? ;p

For myself, 3541 runs in 46 hours and 7 minutes, average runtime of 46.493, up a little over .8 seconds from when I sent in my last update. Motivation was very hard to come by past that point, I'll admit.

Luck was good, had 9 items worth more than 10 points, a few items I was really hoping to see and quite a few nice non-qualifiers. Highlights in the IFT, haul pic below.

I tied Gripphon! In facets. I'll take my wins where I can, thank you.

As for taking items, let's see: I didn't beat Nagisa, so I can't take a trophy. Grip got the only DWeb and took the only Fathom over 25%. In that case, unless pharphis wants me to destroy one of those Templar's Mights for him, I won't be taking anything.

Will be sending this (good thing I found two on Sunday or else I'd be in the same boat with froz) to one of Nagisa's email addresses chosen at random.

Everything I posted was true. I didn't start until near the end because of Minnie. I did try though. It was a nice change to a) be away from Baal and b) see some shiny items which was probably down to (a) and having more MF. :)

Very nice haul pics so far, lovely to see some good ones!

Grip, what can be said about your luck that hasn't already been said. Congrats on the new record, I'm sad to have lost it :) I'm glad my fifth item was so crappy, if it had been a Stormlash or a Fathom, I'd have been super annoyed with losing it by 0.1 or 0.3 points!

I ran about 4 hours this MFO. I didn't have any motivation to speak of to begin with, and when my newly formatted computer couldn't handle GoMule and the run counter, that killed whatever motivation that might have been there. I don't like the idea of going back to ATMA after all these years. The fact that, for the short period I did run, I didn't get any haul pic items didn't help restore it, either. Maybe next time.

Fabian, if you haven't done so already try moving the run counter, GoMule and D2 out of Program Files and into, say, My Documents. Program Files is write protected past Windows Vista and getting things to work on programs in there is not exactly easy. If there's a way to run GoMule as an administrator then that should work even with D2 in Program Files, but on my version of Windows (7) I completely failed to get that to happen after multiple attempts. :/

If you aren't using Windows then I have zero idea.
