    Thumbs up LK tournament

    A credit ( and a honor of hosting it ) goes to tripsu if he is willing to do it.

    I hope there will be people who are interested.

    The tournament is to run LK superchests ONLY and record the amount of flawless gems you find. The purpose is threefold:

    1. Have fun
    2. Find those bers and surs
    3. Calculate ( based on your measurements ) the average number of flawless gems per run and per hour

    The rules

    1. 1.10/1.11
    2. RRM/RWM allowed
    3. Any character ( state which one )
    4. Hell difficulty only
    5. 2 campfires maps only
    6. Only drops from superchests count
    7. Measure your playing time ( including muling )
    8. 1000 runs ( or how many you manage until deadline, if it's less than 1000 )
    9. /players 8 only
    10. The deadline is 1st of July 2007 - (added per request - Hrus)

    The prize

    None, but you will sacrifice your time and body to science during that tournament.

    Code:
    Name           Character             Runs       Time      Gems
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    ZeN            Pure Blizzard         0          0         0
    Suggestions are welcomed. We will have to have at least 10 participants to have a sizable sample.

    Thoughts?

    The tornament starts as soon as we have 10 participants. The sign up will be closed by me at some point ( since there is no timeframe, I will have to decide on it arbitrary ). Join up!
    Further clarifications here (added per request - Hrus)

    I'm in. 1k can't be that hard, can it?

    EDIT: Oh dear, this Saturday? Yes, please do extend it, at least until Wednesday. I doubt I could do much of anything in the next 48 hours.

    I'd do this, but I don't really collect gems and I'm doing /p5-6 runs these days to find out if the other runes can drop. The answer is....gul does but thats the only HR ive found as of yet.

    That all looks good to me Zen. I would suggest extending the deadline a couple days, so that people have time to get in their 1000 runs. Maybe make it 11:59 some time early next week? I know some people have more time on the weekends, and others have more time on the weekdays, so lets give both people the chance.

    I'm a little busy myself for the next couple weeks, so I certainly don't mind you being in charge of the tourney. I'm just really interested in the results.

    Thanks for giving me the credit though!

    OK. Let's extend it till next Saturday - May 5 23:59 GMT+2.

    I will be on a business trip starting Tuesday, but it shouldn't prevent me from overlooking the procedures.

    Sounds really cool, ZeN. My Fishymancer would certainly be up to the task, unfortunately I'm feverishly leveling up my IK Barb.

    Best of luck to all participants!

    I'll have a go over the coming week, I need to get my drop rate to an acceptable level :laugh:

    Just for clarification, is it only collecting Flawless, or would you include cubing lower quality to make Flawless?

    I'd like to try this. Just 1 question I haven't done that many LK runs. What do you mean by "2 campfires maps only". Are there other maps that would not be usable due to this rule?

    Saucy

    there are a significant number of LK maps w/ only one campfire, which would mean a greater number of loads for the same number of special chests, which would affect the time required in a negative way. By specifying this, at least the same number of chests are popped every run, keeping this more consistent. At least, that's the only rationale i can think of.
