    D3 MFO Signup & Progress Thread! It begins!

    Hey all,

    With everything done and dusted in the discussion thread, it's time to get things started!

    So without further ado, the rules below and the signup list below that!

    Sign up for 10 days of happy hunting!

    Start Date: November 30
    Finish Date: December 9th

    Total time: 10 Days
    Supervisors;
    Joosh: jooshm@gmail.com

    I will be supervising the entire competition but would be happy for someone to take on the Europe realms as a supervisor if someone is willing. Please PM or E-Mail me if interested.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Quick Intro

    For those new to the MFO, the basic premise that everyone picks a category and runs that like mad for about a week. It has always been a friendly competition that may somewhat justify playing a little too much Diablo 3


    At the end, everyone scores their finds (scoresheets below) and adds up the top five finds.

    The players with the top scores win and they get to claim a few items from the other participants as prizes.

    The Categories

    *Please note that the categories are not final until the MFO begins, they may need to be adjusted based on the number of participants.

    NA Self Found Softcore
    NA Auction House Softcore
    NA Hardcore
    Europe Self Found Softcore
    Europe Auction House Softcore
    Europe Hardcore

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

    Depending on the number of entrants, supervisors may be required to receive the updates & scores for the different categories.

    Things to include in your e-mail (Progress emails and final upate):
    -Subject should contain ‘D3 SPF MFO’
    -Your forum name
    -The category and your top 5 items for each category you entered

    Example:

    Subject: D3 SPF MFO Results
    Forum name: Joosh

    Self-Found Softcore

    The Witching Hour 90
    Zunimassa’s Trail 27.2

    Sun Keeper 3.5
    Balefire Caster 1
    Balifire Caster 1 (Example of duplicate drop)
    Total 122.7

    -If you quit or drop out, please send the supervisor an email or
    PM saying so.

    -Email your score and post the screens of your top 5 to the supervisor of your category within 24 hours of the end of the MFO.

    Eligible Drops

    Due to the nature of farming in Diablo 3 and the fact that it is not possible to obtain a unique ID for each item (as was possible with ATMA and GoMule in Diablo 2), eligible drops will need to determined in a different way.

    To ensure everyone remains honest (as best as possible), please take a screenshot of any eligible qualifying items you find whilst they are on the ground.

    I know this system is not perfect but we have a great community and honesty always triumphs.

    Participants

    The list of entered participants will follow.

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

    And if you don't think that you're capable of giving up a Witching Hour or
    a Immortal King’s Eternal Reign if you find one and lose, this probably isn't for you.

    Summary of rules:

    -All intending participants must register the categories they wish to
    compete in. No late entries will be accepted.

    -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.

    Prize distribution

    1st Place - picks 3 items from ANY other entrant in your category. (max 1 per entrant)
    2nd Place - picks 2 items from ANY other entrants ranked below you, in your category. (max
    1 per entrant)
    3rd place - picks 1 items from ANY other entrants ranked below you, in your category. (max
    1 per entrant)


    A maximum of 2 items can be taken from each entrant per category.

    I will add jjscud’s original "good sportsmanship" suggestions. These have been modified and some removed to be in line with Diablo 3 and wont be enforced but any reasonable person shouldn't have a 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. the item may be perfect to the finder)

    Scoring

    The system is a points system where a value has been attributed to all of the higher end legendaries based on the minimum gold price on the auction house.


    The system was created by kestegs with the input of the Diablo 3 SPF Community.

    Find below the score sheet;
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0As5E9AEgWtn0dDE2a0NRVXhNMXlWbW1kdGtlcjk0T 3c#gid=0]


    *Teams will not be included this MFO, this is not permanent or final and I am happy to review this should the community disagree.

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

    *All third party programs are banned, in the interests of fariness and honesty please do not use any third party applications, programs & tools.

    Re: D3 MFO Signup Thread! It begins!

    Just killed my new Hardcore runner, and I don't want to use my HC main for this, so I'll sign up for EU SC Self-found. First time participating in a MFO btw. Never got around to it in D2 because lack of time (they always seem to drop in annoying moments for me). Now's not the best time for me either, but I'm sure I'll be able to put some nice hours of gameplay in.

    Re: D3 MFO Signup Thread! It begins!

    So... for some reason I am unable to edit my main post, wanted to modify the supervisors, any thoughts on why it would come as blank?

    Re: D3 MFO Signup Thread! It begins!

    That happens to me when my post is too big (I think...). The thread is created, but if I click on edit, everything goes blank. If that's the reason, you could copy/paste it, break up your post in 2 parts and edit the second post (since the first 2 posts are yours), leaving your sign up to another post.

    Btw: I have a (actually, public exam applying to a public job - and I don't know if there's a english word for that - I'm not in college or something, but I think it's ok to call it a) test on dec. 2, plus some work to do before I attempt to get some vactions. I'll wait until the last the days of sign up to see how everything is going on - work, RL, (lack of) preparation, etc...
