MFO Progress Thread

There were a couple typos in the score sheets so please make sure you have the correct ones. I've removed any bonuses for the low item of split item types. Your score sheet is correct if Lightsaber scores the same as Hellslayer.

With the great crash and occasional hiccup, I'm also posting all important info at http://diablo.jjscud.com/mfo

If you have any questions. Please email me at *redacted -Pb_pal*.

Supervisors:

Baal: Thyiad - mfo(at)chrisclarke(dot)co(dot)uk - or PMs
lvl 85 areas: Drixx - jonathen.roman(at)gmail(dot)com
Mephisto: Cattleya - desertcattleya(at)gmail(dot)com
A5 SUs: Hrus - hrus(at)seznam(dot)cz

Please email your supervisor regular updates. Someone asked recently if daily updates are required. My answer is no, BUT I personally think it more enjoyable to see daily update to the rankings.

Start date: February 24 2007
End date: March 4 2007

Total time - 9 days.

Now Good Luck


Addendum - If you're familiar with the MFO, read this for rule changes

I'm removing the restriction on posting finds. The simple fact is they do get discussed here and there so this just evens the board. No one is required to post their finds and the official progress rankings will still be order only.

Also, I'm limiting the pickings to 2 items max from a single person. So, if first and second each take an item from player X, third place cannot take a third item from that player.

There are a few other slight tweaks, all highlighted in bold.


The Categories

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

-In the interest of sportsmanship, please email regular updates of your progress during the MFing week to your supervisor. These should be in the same format as your final results email.


Things to include in your e-mail (Progress and final upates):

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.

1 per entrant)
3rd place - picks 2 items from ANY other entrants ranked below you (max

with a maximum of 2 items taken from each entrant.

Scoring

The system is based on the relative rarity compared to the IK
Stonecrusher, the most common elite set or unique.

These score sheets are final.

Rules for Teams:

- Please only sign up for team if you are fairly certain you will be able to participate, your team will be depending on you.

- You may have up to a maximum of 4 members in a team with a minimum of 2 members (no 1-man teams)

- Each member must first be registered under the Singles MFO first.

- At least one member must participate in each of the Singles categories.

- One member may run more than one category.

- Multiple members in a single category is allowed. However, only the highest score of 1 member will be taken into account.

Eg. Both Fred and George are in Team CB and running Baal. Fred has a score 150 while George's is 130. Hence Team CB's score for Baal will be based on Fred's ranking.

- When registering your team here, simply state your team name and its members.

- The team with highest item score in a category recieves 10 points, 2nd in that category receives 9, 3rd gets 8, etc. So maximum score for a team would be 40 (1st in all 4 categories).

- As of this moment, team play is just for bragging rights, participating in a team will not risk any of your MFO finds any further.

- If you do not have a team currently but wish to participate on a team. Please sign up under "Availible for teams", this will let others creating a team to know that you are available and I will create as many teams as possible with those that remain at the end.
