The 2nd/3rd billion-dollar item? 500k+ Prize! (in Contests)


[P]Mitt January 12 2010 12:54 AM EST

As some of you know, the record for single largest upgrade in the forge was held by Hatchy and me (for upgrading TGs to +24) until I upgraded my TGs to (+25). I'm in the process of trying to beat my record again, going after (+26), a NW increase of just under 28M. This brings up an interesting tidbit of information: What the NW of a billion-dollar item would be.

I will never own one, but nobody's even close to figuring out what the NW of an item with a NW of over a billion. Until now :)

Well not now, now, but soon.

I'm currently working on my TGs to (+26) and when I achieve that, the Blacksmith will tell me how much the upgrade to (+33) will be.

Here's the contest:
1. Guess how much A Set of Tulkas' Gauntlets [6] (+33) will have in Networth - closest wins 400k + Entry fees - xfer fees.
2. Guess when I will achieve the upgrade to (+26) - closest date wins 100k.

Entries cost 5k - and you are allowed to enter ONLY ONCE. Please send entries to Gloves Contest

Hints/Notes:
I will not hesitate to click "Forge" when I reach 99.999% RPM. I have the forge fees saved up in my bank.
Do some research, plot some graphs. I didn't start forging these today.

BONUS PRIZE: If the person who correctly guesses closest to what day I successfully complete this forging job is the same person as the one who most closely guesses the correct NW, I will add in a bonus of 250k into the 500k prize for awesomeness!

Additional note to clanmates: Yes, you can enter. Yes you have an unfair advantage, but that's what you get for being a clanmate :)

I think the NW of +33 will be $1,497,353,192
I think you will achieve the upgrade of +26 to be on June 2nd.

Sorry to burst your bubble, Mitt, but when I had OB forge my HG to +16, we found the first NW of a billion dollar item. Check the wiki for the info, as it's now at over $2b.

Looks like the value for a corn over 1 bil is known too

Okay! Contest is continuing! Sorry for all of the snafus, if an admin could clear out all of my posts saying I canceled the contest, that would be nice :)

Shade and Mian have entries (don't worry about what I've sent you). And Nov now has a free entry into it!

Other note: This contest will end the day I finish the upgrade, so the sooner you enter, the more likely you will not be "timed" out of either part of the contest.

Miandrital January 13 2010 5:12 PM EST

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 13 2010 5:12 PM EST
