Howls will echo through the Pit. Icy Shards will rain down in the Ancient Tunnels. Lightning bolts will fly and corpses will explode across the land.

Pindle’s horde shambles along in dread of the carnage. Baal’s minions cower in the face of the coming onslaught, and their master’s arrogance is pierced by a moment of doubt.

Sanctuary beware. It’s time for the Magic Find Olympics!

Alright SPFers, it’s time for the 2020 Summer MFO, a longstanding SPF tradition (as documented here)!

Most of the content that follows is shamelessly copied from previous MFOs. So thanks to the prior hosts, mostly nulio, Fabian, and jjscud, and Grape. In general, if you have any questions or comments, you can ask in this thread or you can PM me.

* * *​

I. Basics
Short version:
Run one of three targets—A85, Baal, and Pindle+— as much as possible during a ten-day window spanning two weekends and hope for many golden sacred armors (of the blue variety).
Long version: See section II ;)

Start: Friday, August 28 (00:00 local time)
End: Sunday, September 6 (23:59 local time)

II. Overview
MFO stands for Magic Finding Olympics. For those new to the MFO, the gist of it is everyone picks one of three targets and runs that target like mad for 10 days. At the end, everyone scores their Sets/Uniques using the scoresheets below and adds up the top five finds. The players with the top scores win and they may claim a few items from lower scoring participants who ran the same target as prizes.

All participants must register the categories they wish to compete in before MFO kicks off. No deciding to participate when that Mang’s drops while doing casual MF runs after MFO starts. Sign-up post will follow below.

The Categories
- Hell Baal
- Pindle+: Pindleskin (or Shenk, Eldritch, Thresh or Sharptooth).
- Level 85 Areas

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 only.
- Pindle+: The mentioned SuperUniques (and their minions, in the cases of Eldritch, Pindle and Sharptooth).
- Level 85 Areas: The Mausoleum, The Pit, Maggot Lair lvl 3, Ancient Tunnels, 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/Ancient Tunnels, etc. So if you’re in the Baal category, that Tyrael’s that drops from a random boss pack in the Throne Room doesn’t count :eek:

Beyond that, there are very few limitations. No restrictions of class, builds, items, or approach, provided everyone abides by general SPF rules regarding forum accepted mods (FAM), etc. So any SPF FAM mod and any version 1.11 or later. If you’re not sure about FAM, please read the rules.

III. Scoring
The system is based on the relative rarity compared to the Immortal King Stonecrusher, the most common elite set or unique. Here are the score sheets for each category (from Community Links Sticky): A85, Baal, Pindle+. The full txt files in two formats (alphabetical and item ranking) are also embedded in the spoilers below.

Laying of Hands                     1.4
Dangoon's Teaching                  1.3
Immortal King's Stone Crusher       1.0

The winning player is determined by the five highest-ranked items they find during the MFO. In case of two players tying with the same score, the winner is 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.

Nulio created an excel file that can help you with several things:
Code:
1. 'Tables' sheet has all the scores
2. 'Point Calculator' sheet allows you to list all your finds and calculates your score
a) You have to indicate the category
b) If you are playing more than one category, duplicate the sheet
c) To allow automatic timestamping you need to turn the iterative calculation (File > Options > Formulas > Enable iterative calculation). If you don't want it just delete the column
d) To allow auto completion of cells you need to turn it on (File > Options > Advanced > Enable AutoComplete For Cell Values).
3. 'Rankings' sheet can help supervisors... supervise

A word on teams. As a fun little side competition, players can join teams. It's a person from each category (that have enough people signed up to allow multiple teams), and the combined scores of teams are ranked for an overall winning team, in addition to the individual medalists in each category. No prizes or such, except the eternal bragging rights. Creative team names are highly encouraged!

IV. Sportsmanship: Updates and Final Scores
Do not post any qualifiers found during the MFO!
Here or in the Item Find Thread. Post as many high runes, cool charms, non-qualifying drops (that Tyrael’s from the random boss pack from the Throne Room for our Baal runners). But don’t spoil the surprise and competition by giving too much detail about your progress or likely score!

Updates and Final Scores. In the interest of sportsmanship, please send a private message to your category supervisor (the “Start a conversation” option) with updates of your progress and total score at the following three points in the process:
- The first three days (Friday and first weekend), until the end of Sunday, August 30
- The first seven days, until the end of Thursday, September 3
- Final score as soon as you can (but no later than 12 hours after you finish). Please just send it when you finish playing for the MFO!

These should be in the following format:
Title: SPF - MFO results
Category: A85
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 a PM saying so.

Seriously, Please Send Final Score as Soon as Possible. PM your score and ATMA/GoMule readouts of your top 5 to your area’s supervisor within 12 hours after the end of the MFO. There's always a few people who take a long time to do it, and it holds everything up. It takes literally less than 2 minutes to fire off your Final Update email, and it keeps all of us from waiting a day or longer for the results.

This time, please send the results in quickly, so the area supervisors can finish their lists and send them to me quickly, so I can put up the Results Thread quickly. When you finish running, please send the results right away.

*** I will supervise the all three areas, unless someone really wants to supervise the area I end up running. (I'll either be running my untwinked 99er Druid or my HC Sorc, so I'm not really worried about the suspense being ruined if I end up knowing other's scores.) ***

V. SPF Trading Profile for Item Claiming (It’s Easy to Create One!)

There is a tradition of winners getting the option of claiming items from others, as explained in the next section. To continue that tradition (even though winners haven't claimed items for a while), participants are strongly encouraged to have a trading profile, as it's necessary to participate in claiming.

It’s pretty straightforward to add a trading profile (here), as explained here (see Rule 4.7). A sample trader profile is here. (Note that I created it just to participate in MFO. It took about 5 minutes.)

Hopefully this summary makes it go even faster for others who feel it’s too complicated (which I can relate to for sure).

You should add your trade tag with hyperlink to your trade profile (see sign-up post below for examples). Per @maxicek you should list the version you actually will be running in for MFO, rather than all versions listed in your trade profile. The purpose is that if it comes to items changing hands, we know compatible versions are being used. So, as an example, "1.00-1.14d SC/HC FAM" doesn’t help there, and the sign-up should list "1.14d SC" if that's the version used for MFO character.

For this year's MFO, we are trying out an approach where people can sign up and opt out of claiming. If a participant goes this route, they don't need a trading profile and are excluded from claiming (cannot claim as a winner and cannot have items claimed by winners). Instead of listing the trade tag in sign up, members who opt out should list "No Claiming". If a winner wants to claim an item from someone who has opted out, several of us have committed to pool our resources and provide a replacement item (the roll might differ slightly).

VI. Prize Distribution
Part of the tradition is that MFO medalists get to claim items from other lower ranked entrants within the same category. You don't have to claim anything, and no one has for at least the last 3 MFOs. But it’s part of the tradition, so I’ve maintained it. Claiming is limited to MFO qualifiers (including top 5 for the score). Please give if you signed up for claiming and are asked.

1st Place - picks 1 item from ANY other entrants in your category
2nd Place - picks 1 item from ANY other entrants ranked below you in your category
3rd place - picks 1 item from ANY other entrants ranked below you in your category

There’s a maximum of 2 items taken from each entrant per category.

Here are some previous “good sportsmanship” suggestions. These won't be enforced 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.

* * *

Good luck and HAVE FUN!!! HYPE!!!!

Please note your version/mod status. Per @maxicek you should list the version you actually will be running in for MFO, rather than all versions listed in your trade profile. The purpose is that if it comes to items changing hands, we know compatible versions are being used. So, as an example, "1.00-1.14d SC/HC FAM" doesn’t help there, and the sign-up should list "1.14d SC" if that's the version used for MFO character. Here's an example:

PhineasB [1.14d SC FAM]

Note: your category isn't final until signups close and the MFO starts.

Updated August 30, 2020 to reflect all runners and teams. Updated at conclusion of MFO to link to results here.

I never participate in tourneys involving trade, as I'm self-found 100% , but I always follow them closely! Sometimes, I even pretend to participate, even if I don't. Looking forward to this :D

First to sign up, and sure to come in last! :cool:

Trim [1.14d SC FAM] - Alvl 85

Mostly gonna be running a basic-as-toast blizsorc through AT, though I might mix it up with an undergeared Faithzon in the Pits if I get bored.

I have only participated in an MFO once before, many years ago.

Swamigoon [1.14b SC vanilla] - Alvl 85

I don't really have any efficient dedicated area MFers. So far I have five capable of running: a skeleton overlord necro, a hydra/orb sorc, a CS/LF zon, a TS/DS dancer sin, and a shockwave summoner druid. I'd like to use each of them in various area 85s to keep things interesting. (If there's enough time, I also want to try to level up an FoH/HB templar paladin for some Mausoleum runs.)

My run times may be comparatively lousy, but it should still be fun to see if I can get at least five qualifiers to drop. Even if I end up posting a 5.0 score with five IK stone crushers, I would still be delighted!

Thanks for hosting again @PhineasB!
@Helvete I think something like 95% of MFO participants are self-found and only have trade profiles for this purpose.. In other words, no excuse not to sign up! ;)

I’m only able to play from Tuesday onwards, but I will join. Possibly CS looking for runes mainly or Baal for XP. I don’t hold much hope for items from either.

Thanks for hosting @PhineasB!

Time to decorate AT ❄ With Tyrael's out of the way, gems and rings will be included in my pickup list.

After the MFO, I should have enough practice for a Hall of Records attempt on my new map.

Good luck everyone :)

I'll go ahead and sign up for Baal. My untwinked 99er zon is still hunting for Infinity runes, but that should be done in time to try netting some MF gear before this starts. I doubt I'll have the luck I did last year, as this time around I won't be starting out with Enigma, but maybe I'll be lucky enough to collect the runes for it along the way!

Looks like I'll be the first willing to join a team. What's up with that?!?

I'll throw my HC Zerker in this running Pindle+. I'll also be available for a team. Hopefully getting the grail down from -18 to possibly single digits...

Nice! Been looking forward to it. Now I have to finish finding an acceptable pitmap with my barb, which is giving me fits. D2's being very stubborn on the juicy maps.

In all seriousness, I could see merging pindle and alvl 85's being a good move sometime in the future. Kinda like how Arcane is best for rfl rnd 3 but gives up a a chance of zod, same thing for pindle vs alvl 85 and tyraels. Anyways just food for thought for next year!

My goal is to run 20 hours over the ten days, so if that sounds good enough for a team to want me, count me in :p.

@Albatross haha I love it. Can't believe you're doing more AT blizz, but I guess you're at the top of the sorc HoR for a reason ^^.

@Helvete I second ffs. Join on up! Most of us are self-found and the winners never claim anything (seems to be mostly a holdover from the olden days). But worse comes to worse, you just could have to give up an item, which won't make you not self-found.

I had originally planned to go with Pit Nova Sorc for this (still think she's incredibly underused and underrated). However, last week I finally pushed a Barb to 96 at Baal and then found a really nice Pit map for him... So probably I'll be zerking after all, and like @Albatross I should try and hopefully get some good HoR scores out of this!

I don't really have any immediate plans in any of these areas right now. If I level up a char that may change but in the absence of a strong preference, 2nd place sounds nice.

Hey guys!

Well hopefully I'll have more available time coming soon, but it's not the case at all lately - I haven't played a game since weeks I guess, so I hope I won't start it completely fresh!

I may go A85 if I can train a bit, if not I'll probably join the Pindle runners...we'll see!

I see some still have hope from Baal... in my mind any lucky drop there is so sexy as a 99 ilvl one (should you reroll that ilvl99 39 Pcombat lifer?). Much of luck to you guys!

Anyway, good training for the ones who do, good map fishing too, and may we all get one useful treasure during that edition!
