I also would like your opinions on if we should go to 6 judges per match this round or wait till next round?
Welcome to round four of the 2012 MocOlympics! Below you will find your matchups with your opponent and your category.
Dates and Times:
Round two starts NOW and will end at 11:59 pm, MOCpages time Sunday, November 4th. No entries will be accepted after this time. If you do not have your entry posted AND added to the group by the deadline, you will forfeit your match and your opponent will advance.
Your entry must be titled: MocOlympics (may be shortened to MO) round 4 "you" vs "Your opponent." You may title it anything you wish after that but that must be the opening of the title.
Near the TOP of the entry you must state what category you are playing in. Feel free to simply copy and paste your category from this thread or type in the title of the category, your choice.
Preferably near the top of your post, you MUST have a WORKING link to your opponent’s page. If you post first then linking to their homepage is fine. If you post second, please link to their entry. You do not HAVE to change the link to their entry after they post (if you post first) but you are welcome to change it after they post if you'd like. This is the ONLY change that may be made after adding an entry to the group. You do NOT have to have a working link back to the main MocOlympics group. You’re free to add it if you wish but it is NOT required.
You must add your entry to the group pool. Once you add it to the group, that's it, it's OURS and NO changes may be made. If you make a change and we find out about it, you will be disqualified and your opponent will advance to the next round. We STRONGLY suggest that you get feedback from others and make any needed changes BEFORE adding it to the group. The judges will NOT look at it until it's added to the group.
Once you and your opponent have posted and added your entries to the group, the judges will vote on the mocs. There will be three judges for each matchup (divided by the brackets). You must receive 2 out of 3 votes to advance to the next round. The judges are NOT required to write full, detailed comments with their votes (but may if they choose to). The only thing required by a judge is which moc he’s voting for. Each judge’s decision is final.
Your judges are:
Brackets One and Two: Chris Phipson, Paul Vermeesch and Sebeus I.
Brackets Three and Four: Shannon Ocean, Chris Roach and Cody G.
Without further ado… welcome to round 4 and good luck!
Stormbringer vs LWC guy
Famous landmarks: The Taj Mahal, The Eiffle Tower, Big Ben, The Great Pyramid of Giza. Pick a famous landmark and show us your version of it. Microscale or minifig scale, it's up to you!
Gio vs Tom Remy
A pirate's life for me: Build a scene showing pirates doing what pirates do. Are they having a swash buckling battle with another vessel on the high seas? Drunken nights at the port town? Ransacking a small coastal village? Show us your best pirate scene!
Mark Erickson vs Max Pointer
Go to H. E. Double hockey sticks: Build us what you imagine the underworld would look like. You may choose from any reference material you wish but give us your version of (a) dark lord's realm.
David A Smith vs Stuart Delahay
The Grey’s research project: Ok, so there’s plenty of UFO talk out there about aliens studying us right? Well… what do they think of us? Your job is to provide us with a brief documentary type moc detailing what the Grey’s (or any other alien species) think about Earth and the strange talking monkeys that live there. Think… nature documentary on the discovery channel detailing the daily lives of termites or something along those lines but from the alien’s point of view.
Nick Barret vs George G.
A Bug's Life: show us life from the perspective of an insect like a fly or ant: giant blades of grass and stones or indoor stuff like food scraps n the kitchen. What would these look like to an tiny creature?
Tyler H. vs Sir Blamorgineus (Check spelling)
Sherlock Holmes: Everyone's favorite consulting detective got a Legoification in the
Minifigure Series 5. Build a scene featuring the famous intellectual. You needn't use the series minifig, and your version of Holmes might be inspired by Doyle's stories, Basil Rathbone, Benedict Cumberbatch, or by Robert Downey Jr. Does he solve the case? You do not need to build an entire mystery/story, a simple vig or dio will do.
Thoy Bradley vs Legopard
Water Park: Build us a fun time water park complete with things like slides, a wave pool, a lazy river... slides! (does not HAVE to include all of these. They're just suggestions of things in a waterpark). What would your "epic" water park look like? Minifig scale would be preferable but micro/midi scale is acceptable.
Heath Flor vs Ian Spacek
Mosaics: We’re going to leave this one open a bit. We want you to “paint” an ORIGINAL piece of art using Lego. 2D only please. Permalink
Looks good to me. I think we should stick with three judges per bracket this round, but maybe we could switch brackets? Just an idea to promote the appearance of random and objective judging. Permalink
looks good, cody's idea of switching judges might be a good idea too but switching it one round before we all vote may not give the right message. maybe for next year judging brackets should change judges per round but remian for this year.

Hey guys, not sure if this has already come up as Hurricane Sandy was many days ago now but should we extend the deadline for this round with the New York servers being down? I know I've been trying to post my own mocs lately withou any luck.
Altho maybe if everyone's having trouble then they'll just get uploaded when everythings online again and it won't matter much? Permalink
