Rules: Solo Lock-Ironman% Freshmeat Blog Rules @ http://tinyurl.com/q9u7ctl (Stairway Trapping Technique is allowed & players MUST Kill the Butcher/King Leoric)
Add On: *Every player is indentured to record their ENTIRE run from the beginning of character creation. This INCLUDES training time and time in Tristram.
Note: Your full run must be available to review online. (Twitch.tv and Youtube are both good options for this). You may post your link of your best recording here on the forum ON or BEFORE the end date of this tournament.
*Every character name MUST be tagged with a PREFIX that will be given out ONCE THE TOURNAMENT BEGINS. This is to ensure that all runs have been performed during the tournament lifespan. (The Special Tag will be displayed on this post, twitter, and twitch.tv on February 8th @ 7 a.m. CST.)
Example: If the tournament tag is given out as [EG] then all player names must start with [EG]xxxx. If a character is named LordRage then they must be named [EG]LordRage.
*The winner will be judged first on the DEEPEST DUNGEON LEVEL achieved. If there is a tie in dungeon levels then the FIRST player to arrive at that level will be the winner (This is specifically the exact moment you finish loading into the deepest level). If by some miracle two or more players complete Hell/Hell then the FIRST player to land the killing blow on Diablo will be declared the winner.
Example: Player 1 arrives at level 9 Caves in Normal difficulty but dies against the first monster: Their final entry is Level 9 and the time that they loaded into the level. Player 2 arrives at level 9 caves LATER than player 1 but clears most of the level before dying. Player 1 is still the winner in this case.
Note: The TIME of a run begins the moment you finish loading into the first dungeon level. Both Training time and time spent in Tristram on any difficulty do NOT count towards the the total time.
