MFO Progress Thread

I wasn't sure about bothering with a seperate progress thread but since I mucked up the dates and will be using different scoring sheets I'll start clean.


Start Date March 25th 12:01 AM
End Date April 2nd 11:59 PM

Rules will follow, here's the pertinent info for the competition.


Cryist - lvl 85 areas - cryist1(at)gmail(.)com
Hrus - Act 5 SUs - hrus at hrus dot net
Kaysaar - Meph - Mark(dot)J(dot)Phelps(at)gmail(dot)com
jjscud - Baal - jjscud at

Partipants - Please email your supervisor every day or two with the following info (feel free to decrypt their email address and store that on your computer:wink3: :

Forum Name
Top 5 finds - Points
Total Points

ATMA Readout are not needed until the end of the competition

Supervisors - Please post a ranking of the participants in your category every day or two (in this thread) but don't inlcude their points, we're only looking for an ordering.

Scoring Sheets

I've included csv files so you can easily put this in your favorite spreadsheet program and format/order it how you like.

Baal (csv File)
lvl 85 Areas (csv File)
Meph (csv File)
Act 5 SUs (csv File)


First on the two questioned rules.

1. No one voted against ID'ing items so you are allowed to ID items in this MFO.

2. There was only one vote for splitting the double points items (me) and several against so they are not split in the score sheets.

And the rest:

The Categories

- Hell Mephisto
- Hell Baal
- Act 5 SuperUniques: Shenk, Eldritch, Pindleskin, Thresh, 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))

If you're entered, try to do your best.

And if you don't think that you're capable of giving up a Windforce or a Stormlash if you find one and lose, this probably isn't for you. :p

Allowed mods RRM, RWM. You must post your mod status!

Eligible finds

The following monsters are the only ones whose drops will be considered in each category:

- Hell Meph: Meph only.
- Hell Baal: Baal and his 5 minion packs.
- Act 5 SuperUniques: The mentioned SuperUniques and their Minions, in the cases of Eldritch, Pindle and Sharptooth.
- Level 85 areas: Any monster in these areas. Except Baal's and Diablo's minions.

Drops from all other sources will not count. This includes Blood Lords and Council Members near Meph, Prowling Dead in Pindle's Garden, Chests in the Pits, etc.

Summary of rules:

-The winning player shall be determined by the five highest-ranked items they find during the week.

-In case of 2 players tying with the same score, the winner shall be 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.

-DO NOT post your finds.

-Email your findings to your area's supervisor within two days after the end of the MFO - by April 4th.
