It is now 12:02 Eastern time. The games are over and the group is locked.

504 creations! You guys ROCKED! Thank you SO much everyone who played this year. These games wouldn't happen without you all. Thank you!

To my judges. Bones, Shifu, Kevin and Leda. You guys have gone above and beyond the call here (and it's not over yet for us). I wish there was a word bigger than "thank you" but nothing would really cover it enough. Thank you so much for all you've done during this contest.

To Dave and Stacy Sterling. Stacy, thank you so much for being our fill in when Leda had to step out for a few days. To both of you, thank you so much for putting up the prizes for this year's games. You guys are like family to me and I really can't thank you both enough. You guys rock!

To all the players. You guys have knocked it out of the park on this one! I haven't checked the numbers but I know we surpassed last year's number of entries. Thank you all for kicking all form of (bleep) this year!

Ok, give us a couple of days to get caught up on judging. In a couple of days, we'll open a thread called something along the lines of "You didn't judge my moc" where you can tell us if we missed something (It's bound to happen). Until then, sit tight and give us some time to catch up before you go spouting off that we didn't judge your moc. This isn't going to be instant. We'll post the standings as soon as we can.


Again, thank you to EVERYONE invovled and I hope to see you all in the MocOlympics this fall!

Oh shoot it ended eastern time, I was hoping to sneak one in before my midnight, oh well, we would have finished last anyway (*grumble* lazy team) But can I post one creation in my teams group, even though it won't be judged I still would like to, sort of as a fare well. Though I can't wait for next year! I will defiantly join, with a new team though. All in all it was fun!

Meh, I thought I had four hours more... I missed the am/pm thing, 24h clock is far better.

Thanks for the contest, althought my team didn't end up above the 11th place as I hoped (11 is the middle of 21, my team was once on the 11th place and I figured out that we had 10 teams behind and 10 teams before) it was still the BEST contest I've joined, I honestly thinks it's much better than the Mocolympics and I finally got an excuse to build in some new themes.

This contest has been very good to me, it has made me start building again, even after completing some large projects.

But my problem now is what should I make next?

Thanks to everyone who helped make this event happen! I also want to thank my team-mates who helped me along the way, and vented with me :)
I was going to make a final stride. I worked soo hard today, had three decent mocs done, with 45 mins till the deadline! I only take like four pics of each, becuase of the time left, and of course, my camera fails me.... Classic.. Well, anyways I guess i'll polish them a little more, and add them some other time :)


Hopefully, I won't start a darkage after this, like I did last year!

I had a great time thanks to everyone!

Even though I did not participate I thought it would be good to thank the judges for putting up a spectacular show. It is a tremendous gift to the community hosting competitions like this and so many great creations came through here. Thank you all!

I was absolutely flabbergasted at the time and energy that was spent by you fellas. Thanks again! And kudos to all contestants!

Well, that was so fun, and even though i produced almost nothing, my (would be) final entry is too late, and im glad that i had the chance to work as a team with fellow MOCers! See you in the MocOlympics!

Man, this was the most nerve-wracking contest I've ever entered, but I had one awesome time.

My fragile psyche can only stand something like this once a year, so I won't be entering the MOColympics or anything.

Congrats to all the teams who entered, I hope to see you again next year! =D

To the judges: I would like to thank Mister Bones, Master Shifu Leo J, Leda Kat, Chris Phipson,and Kevin J Walters for their hard work in preparing, hosting, and judging in this competition. I'v had a blast, and I look forward to the MOCOlympics. Also, I would like to thank the Sterlings. Though I have my douts that the members of Teamgo! will receive a prize; it is gracious of them to supply prizes to the winning team.

Teamgo fought the good fight, the judging is not over, you could still do well!

To one and all. You were AWESOME! The games are over, so please, take some time to go through the entries and leave a few comments on the 504 great builds that are in this group. I did this last year and know how stressful it actually is, so my skull is off to you all! We will get the scores and results together as quick as may be, but it will take some time.

Yes. Each of us 5 judges were competitors in last year's MOCAthalon so we know exactly how much effort you all gave this past month.

It has been tiring judging so many mocs (and still heaps left to go!) but it has also been a mad learning curve as I have gained so much inspiration from seeing all your builds and have learned many new techniques and been introduced to so many builders who I did not know previously. We have seen so many of you grow through this past month, and many of you have created mocs that you will be proud of for many years to come. I feel privileged to be a part of such an event.

Good luck to all, congrats to those who do finally win, and a huge round of applause to everybody for participating and making this event the huge success it became! 504 mocs!!!!!

Leda found the right words - only left to say:
DITO!!!

For real, it was a pleasure and an honor for me to judge in this contest and I'm sorry for the 95% of entries were I only commented the following " Score = ..." - but I recognized really fast after the contest started that my English vocabulary is pretty basic - for profound comments too much...
So sorry to you 95% which only get an simple Score!

Go MocAthalon! Once again, you judges did a great job with this contest. I had a lot of fun, and hope all of the other participants did as well.

When it's all said and done I'd love to see whose theme was whose. Maybe a list to see?

I too would like to see who won the best moc for each category. Not for prizes or anything, I just want to see who was the most creative.

^I'd be interested in seeing that too.Although I totally understand if that's too much extra work for the judges. They've got enough on their plates just finishing up their normal duties!

XOXOXOXO to all the judges and the Sterlings! Plus, a big round of applause to ALL of the builders who participated; some truly creative work took place over this last month and you should all be proud.~H

But my problem now is what should I make next?


Ditto here. I'm thinking of just going through the rest of the categories and building something for each of them. Unlike some crazed individuals (looking at Hans and Heath in particular) who completed almost every category, I only got in four entries. Can't wait till next year when I am through with my MBA and my evenings will be homework free again.

Thanks, once again, to all the judges and your supreme efforts with judging all the entries. Can't wait for the results.

I just would like to thank everybody who participated in the 2011 MocAthalon. The success of the competition depended in the creativity and relentless building from all of you. It was a joy to see amazing, ingenious, and sometimes flat-out out of the box creations. It was also cool how teamwork played a role in a lot of these entries. Bravo!

Delayed thanks to the judges. This is definitely the contest I've enjoyed the most, to date.

Also late here, thanks to the awesome 5/6 judges, you did a great job for this tough contest.

we might not have a great score but considering the few mocs we made, take the average and we did pretty well :P
my average score is 22,5/25 :P
