rja was already taken, so on twitch it’s r0gera.

And my stream is very boring. I open a lot of boxes.

For TPS, will there be a separate thread over there or will everything be run from here?

Everything here.

Some questions:

Is there a link for the Twitch event?

You say: “Legendary/Pearlescent Items from vendors in the ‘Item of the Day’ ARE ALLOWED (do not have to buy, just screen shot of item)”

Well, in early game, especially TPS, I’ve often seen legendaries in vending machines but they are way beyond my means! Can’t see how a screenshot showing the legendary but no capability to buy should count!?

Also, does everything have to be done solo? What about a friend with a character at same level with badass ranks turned off? Vaguely recall reading for boss fights can be two player?

Is there going to be one winner for BL2 and one for TPS one for points overall (combined games)?

You don’t have to buy. Just screenshot the item from the vending machine. Consider it a random world drop.

That is fine. Just please use the honor system and have your partner go by the rules posted.

Overall.

Since this is for fun, I will post top “farmers” of each game as well.

I’ll use Jack for TPS, still undecided for B2, its either Gaige or another Krieg.

re, Torgue vendors - if a legendary is an IotD, do we still have to buy it?

Not sure how far/crazy I’ll go with it, but I’m gonna get in on BL2. Just gotta decide who to play.

I’m having this issue too. I can’t decide!

I already have like 5 or 10 Zer0’s and Maya’s lol.

Leaning towards another Gaige or Axton…

I’ve been holding off my Claptrap playthrough for a while, just so I could do it for the hunt. BL2 will be with Krieg. :smiley:

Reason I asked is that the next rule states (emphasis added)…

  • Legendary/Pearlescent Items from vendors in the “Item of the Day” ARE ALLOWED (do not have to buy, just screen shot of item).

I don’t mean to be difficult, but that seems a bit of a contradiction - if IotD items from Marcus vendors only need a screen, why do we have to buy IotD Torgue items?

I would assume the difference is the Torgue machine is a guaranteed Legendary item everytime you check, whereas the Marcus machines very seldom have anything Legendary in them, this is what I would assume is the reason for the difference in qualifying items.

Precisely.

Anything that’s a guaranteed drop is either not included ( quest rewards ) or you have to put in the work to get it.

Why farm the traditional Torgue drops when you can just pop into the DLC and take a bunch of screenshots. No, you have to actually play the game to get them.

Vendor IotD’s are rare and completely RNG driven.

I’m using sal for bl2, easier raid kills and peak runs.

For tps i can’t decide between nisha, clap trap, or Athena
