It must be the focal point of the MOC, so much so that the creation wouldn't really work without it. You will be judged on not only how good the entry is, but how well you used the piece. The special ingredient list for you to choose from is: 1. Yellow Minifig Hand 2. Dark Grey Binoculars 3. Dark Tan 2x1 Slope

I haven't counted but that seems like a good round number. I'm going to wait to see how many people actually post for round one before I take any hard numbers.

At this point, it looks like what we'll end up doing is going with a top 64 for round two and everyone else that has entered a moc for round one will be invited to the side games (which I have NO details on yet or even how it will work so please don't ask just yet).

If we get over 200 entries for round one then I'll make an extra bracket to make round 2 the top 128 players, but at this point, like I said... top 64.

That being said, the side games (depending on what they are) WILL have prizes as well. They won't be nearly as big as the prizes for the main games of course but a prize is a prize right?

Alrighty... the games start on Sunday! Just a few more days to get your collections ready! Start sorting people!

I've been debating weather to re-upload it or just keep it there. If I re-uploaded it I probably wouldn't have the same amount of likes as it did before it was spammed because people have already seen it? right?

The MocOlympics are always around the start of September with the group opening either at the end of August or first week or so of Sept. So mark your calander for next year!

Also, the MocAthalon is usually in the spring, usually March with the group opening in late February. Hope to see you there for that one!

thx for your support, being a judge may be harder than being a contestant. Wait didn't you knock me out last year LOL! You are right on the button with your comments on the competition and judging. .... PS contestants I can only be bribed with ratchet joints.


Quoting Thoy Bradley
This is a message in support of our Judges – who I think are doing a tremendous job, while knowing they will not please everyone. Bravo Judges!

To those contestants that like to tell judges they made the wrong decision – you seriously need to grow-up. There have been multiple occasions so far in this competition where judges have had to make incredibly tough calls – Blake is a shinning example of how to handle those tough calls when they don’t go your way.

There are many things that each judge will consider when scoring an entry: Are aesthetics (looks) more important than technique, Was the build approach more difficult, Did one contestant have a better take than their opponent etc. The list goes on. Getting a balanced outcome based on these things can be difficult. Because each judge is individual – and as individuals they all have different opinions on what is more important.

Don’t get me wrong, contestants are allowed to disagree with a judge, I myself have made my thoughts vocal in this manner before. But never, should a contestant tell a judge they made the wrong decision – the judges will all be making calls based on their opinions – and when it comes to judging, opinion can never be proven wrong.

So please, if you are a contestant, and you feel you received unfair scoring in round 1, or unfair voting in any other round – take it like a grown-up. Don’t sit there and complain, don’t try to get an army of support for your cause. It simply puts you and your supporters in bad light - Period.

One more thing: This competition is about how well you build on the day – contestants do not move forward based on how high their ratings are on previous MOCs.

Guys/Gals, Give the judges some slack! They have all performed admirably, and yes, their opinions are allowed to be different to yours. Part of being a good contestant is taking a loss maturely, if you can’t do this then perhaps you are not mature enough to be competing.

To our judges – don’t change a thing! You are all marvelous and your positions earn you respect.

I'd love to back up what Thoy said and say that a judges' choice between two MOCs is a very VERY tiny reference frame to judge between two people. Please know that when it comes down to it, the judges are only comparing two lumps of plastic. Our decisions NEVER reflect a judgement based on your personal character, how much we personally appreciate your work, your past creations, or your history as a part of the community. In that respect, our decisions are never intended to slight you as a builder. If the judges had their way, everyone would win. But then, that's socialism, and that's no fun either. Our decisions, whichever way they turn, should inspire you to give it another go next year.

It's the beauty of the MocOlympics that an underdog can rise to the top. Narrowing the reference frame to a simple comparison of two creations allows the bricks to speak for themselves. If you're looking to shine as an all-around member of the community as well as an awesome builder, that's what the MOCies are for!

All that to say don't let our decisions define you. Just try even harder next time!
