Mini-MFO: The Anti-Pits

Abstract - Run lvl 85 areas EXCEPT The Pits looking for goodies. This tourney will last just one weekend. Winers pick prizes from required entry fees, not others findings.

The rules (shamelessy plagiarized from ricrestoni's old mini-mfo rules):

0 - (the implied rule) - If thou reads this, THOU MUST BY ALL MEANS TAKE PART ON IT!

1- It starts Friday, 11-11, 8 PM, and ends Monday, 11-14, 8 AM. These are your local time.

2- Thou shalt pay the subscription fee and subscribe thyself for any categories thou wishest, before it begins. Only members of the SPF may enter the competition.

2.1- As a member of the SPF, thou must fulfill at least one of the following pre-requisites:

- Post an intro thread
- Frequent EMB
- Blame Durf

2.2- The subscription fee, for thy knowledge, 1 Jewel, 1 Expansion Set item, and 1 Elite Unique. Send your forum name, Mod type, and entry fee to jjscud at yahoo dot com.

2.3- If there's a problem with the entry fee, pm me, I want anyone who wants to to participate.

2.4- The categories are Softcore and Hardcore. Thou shalt clearly state which one(s) thou competest at by posting it properly at this thread and/or stating it clearly by e-mail.

2.5- If thy desires are to compete in both categories, send two entry fees, separated accordingly.

3- Thou shalt kill all monsters in level-85 areas EXCEPT THE PITS in your category(ies) until thy eyes wither, and horde thy spoils.

3.1 - Diablo's Minions (the Seal bosses) and Baal's 5 minion Packs don't count, nor does Diablo or Baal.

4- Thou shalt NOT post thy findings prior to 8 AM on the 15th (Tuesday).

5- Thou shalt, when it is over, send to jjscud at yahoo dot com the following:

- Thy forum name.

And for each category:

- Thy character info (class, build, level, %MF, Mod).
- ATMA readings of thy 2 rarest findings from the allowed areas during the valid period, containing all item information, including - but not limited to - fingerprints. Only set and unique elite items are valid entries, so thou knowest.

5.1- Thy info MUST be sent up to 36 hours after the end of the competition.

6- The competitor who gets the highest score (top two items) wins. Rarity shall be measured by a list for each category where each valid item is followed by a number that indicates how rare it is (the bigger the number the rarer the item).

6.1- If a tie occurs, the competitor who found the 3nd rarest item wins.

6.2- If the tie persists, then it is a draw.

6.3- If a draw occurs between the victors, the prizes shall be divided in a brotherly fashion.

7- No items shall be claimed from winners at this edition. Finder's keeper's, if thou preferest.

8- Thou shall NOT identify the items thou intendest to apply to thy victory. ATMA is reserved to give thee the pleasures of thy finding, not Deckard Cain. IDed items willl NOT be accepted as valid entries.

8.1- Optional rulings shall be reserved for MAC users and other special cases.

9- The prizes will be 3 stashes for each category filled with thy paid fees. They shall be given like this:

1st place - first pick
2nd place - second pick
3rd place - remaining stash

9.1- Contents of the prize stashes are accessable by request from any competitor.

9.2- Additional prizes may be donated to the victors, and if they exist, they will be treated as this narrator sees fit.

10- Doubts, subscriptions and further suggestions shall be posted in this thread for everybody's knowledge.

11- Thou wilt have fun!

12- Mods - Mods will make this a bit crazy, please include your mod (Vanilla, RRM, RWM or RRM + RWM. None others allowed) when you enter and when you send in an entrance fee. I will keep items of different mods seperate. The winners can decide to take all prizes or just prizes of certain mods and I may replce items with vanilla versions at my discression.
