Feb10th DF crawl #3
« on: February 09, 2013, 03:22:08 PM »
Alright, I want to do another community event THIS WEEKEND.  Short notice.  But who does things on a sunday night ?!

We've done multiple DF crawls this one will be a bit different due sadly to the MP bugs we know about this game.
How this will work.

DF CRAWL #3 will be with 100th level character on ELITE hardness level.
ANY CHARACTER CURRENTLY PART OF SYNERGIES PATCHES can be played.

SOFTCORE, ELITE.
Level your character to level 100
give your character 1million gold
set your skills if you wish. 
DO NOTHING ELSE.

At 7:45PM PST on SUNDAY the 10th of Feb we will meet in MUMBLE, look in news for IP for connection.
from 7:45PM to 8:30PM we will all buy gear, buy gems, and ENCHANT.  You may enchant for this version, but you are STILL limited to your 1million coins, so deciding what you NEED and want is paramount.

YOU MAY NOT:

TRADE WITH ANY PLAYER
USE ANY SHARED STASH OR STASH
PLAY A PRE-EXISTING CHARACTER
BUY GEAR BEFORE 7:45, or AFTER 8:30.
BUY EXTRA SOCKETS, DO NOT DO THIS.

once 8:30PM comes along, done or not, you are done buying/enchanting.

now comes the tricky part.   We all know there is bugs with MP.  things like you having 30k life but dieing from 6k damage.  Gear not being displayed.. (hence why we are not doing extra sockets)

A 8:15PM i will start dividing people into 'groups'  each group will form their own game, and at 8:30 be on their groups game server.
All groups will enter DF at the same time, All groups will wait at the DF boss entrance (outside of it) for the other groups to catch up.  We all go into the boss room at the same time and wait for each other to finish the fight.


WHEN YOU DIE, you respawn in dungeon.
WHEN THE BOSS DIES, you report how many deaths you had for that boss.

SCORING WILL BE DONE LIKE GOLF.
you start 1 attempt.  each death is +1 attempt.  Each boss fight is +1 attempt for zoning in at the start of the fight.
The Person with the least amount of attempt points will be declared the 'winner'.   
The points will be displayed and I will likely start doing this as a 'league' of sorts.  And have it carry on beyond this simple event.

These dungeons are the absolutely most fun when they are not over geared. 

This event is based on trust of you, and commitment from me. 
please follow the rules or you will not be invited back in the future.

Sounds sweet. Time to whip out the console. Only 5.5 hours to go!


My advice about this event going forward is thus:

-MUMBLE. Whats that?

-Provide the exact console commands to be legit for this event.


Cause Synergies is generating a lot of attention right now. Myriad players who (and lets be polite) don't use the intertubes too well are looking for ways back into TL2 and are coming across recommendations for Synergies. I admit guilt to being a pusher of this drug! Anyways, these people may venture here as lurkers and see something like this event and even have interest, but be turned off by the obfuscation.

Unless the intention is to keep the scrubs at the periphery...Like some sort of survival of the fittest shit.

Mumble is voice chat, like Teamspeak, only not as good lol I much prefer TS. I might be there, depends on how i'm feeling, i've been having a lot of breathing issues lately.

I'm lurking on mumble, still trying to make up my mind.  Lot's of peeps on mumble at the moment though.  Might be interesting.

the league of darkness in this forum has been updated.

Fluffy is going to help get something integrated in the actual website at some point.

also the NEXT df crawl we will use a unenchanted tier1 legendary armor set for each player playing, so we can see the difference in gear scaling.
