Welcome to the "Elite Eight" and round five of the 2012 MocOlympics! Below you will find your matchups with your opponent and your category.
First, I would like to address the issue that was brought up in round four. I won't go on and on about it I will only say this. From this point on, ONLY ONE MOC PER ENTRY unless it's needed for the category (say, for a story category or something along those lines). This rule is from now on (and will continue into the other games we host like the MocAthalon). From now on, only one moc per entry. Thank you.
Dates and Times:
Round two starts NOW and will end at 11:59 pm, MOCpages time Sunday, November 18th. 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 5 "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.
NEW FOR THIS ROUND!
There will be SIX judges for each matchup. You must receive 4 out of 6 votes to advance to the next round. In the event of a tie, a 7th judge will be brought in to break the tie. 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:
Chris Phipson, Paul Vermeesch, Sebeus I.,
Shannon Ocean, Chris Roach and Cody G.
And now, your categories and matchups for the Elite 8 and round 5!
LWC Guy Vs Tom Remy
A certain point of view: Tell us an adventure story, but here's the twist. Tell us the story from the perspective of the villain! People aren't just "evil" for the sake of being evil (expect for Dr. Doofenschmirtz of course) so now's your chance to make us root for the bad guy! What's his motivation? What does he want? And why does he feel that his (evil) way is the only way to get it done? You may choose already existing fiction or create your own, the choice is yours.
Mark Erickson vs Stu Delahay
Beginning and End: This is a rehash from a past category. Build us a story... any story you wish and whichever genre you want but here's the catch... it MUST begin and end with the following lines...
"My name is Archibald Reginold Snegglepusenshire, and this is the tale of my last day on Earth."
"So the moral of the story kids, is never trust a clown in a bikini who offers you a banana."
It doesn't matter how long the story is. It could be three frames or 30, as long as you
begin and end with those lines AND (here's the tricky part) have it make SENSE!
George G. vs Sir Balamorgineas
AvP Universe: We’re all familiar with the Alien and Predator movies/comics/novels and so on. Here’s your task, build us something from that Universe. It does NOT have to include an alien or predator (it can if you wish) but it must be something that could be set in that universe. Anything from an Alien Hive to a microscale version of “The Betty” (the pirate ship from Alien: Resurrection). The choice is yours.
Legopard vs Heath Flor
Robot Jox: Your job is to create two robots (with pilots)in a knock down, drag out fight to the finish in gladiatorial style combat. This idea is inspired by (Read: stolen) the 1990 cult classic, Robot Jox http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot_Jox (man I loved that movie). Consider this a “mech” type category so no microscale please. Your arena does NOT have to be a full scale "thing" with a FULL crowd and stands and all that (that would be asking WAY too much of some collections) but some sort of “battle area” must be built.
And that's why we have the sign off... whoops haha Thanks guys, I'll make those changes. I'll admit I'm a bit off my game here. I'm doing some training stuff this week and doing this stuff in between learning new stuff and... yeah.
Quoting Chris Phipson
Changes have been made. How does it look now?
That works. Before you post, though, could you look at my note in the "Moc or Mocs?" thread? I know it's probably already settled in most people's minds, but I think the point I made is worth looking at. Permalink
