Round 3!

 Group admin 
The Rules:

1- This round will have direct 1 VS 1 match-ups. The winner by the majority of votes moves up and the loser moves out.

2- Time Frame - You have until July 28 at 23:59, MOCpages time, to submit your MOC. Entries posted outside this time frame will be void.

3- Entries - This should go without saying, but yeah, only one entry per person.

4- Reminder - remember to specify that your MOC is an entry for the 2013 Bio Cup (you can title it any way you want) and to add a link to you entry's page right in the round 3 entry thread once you're sure everything's OK.

When in doubt, double-check the rules and/or ask us. Better safe than sorry.


And the theme for the next round is:

Take me for a ride! - Build a sidekick for your character and a cool vehicle to carry them both on their adventures!
The sidekick can be humanoid or not, though he does need to be able to ride with your character. There are again no size restrictions.

-Feel free to apply some minor adjustments to your character. You can tweak some details if you're not happy with them, it won't affect judging.

-DON'T SCRAP YOUR CHARACTER as long as you keep winning. You can do as you please with the vehicle and the sidekick.

The sub-themes list with the corresponding match-up to that theme bellow:

1- Battle vehicle (land)
1- [ Chro ] VS J6 Crash

2- Air vehicle
2- Instant Noodles VS Toa Likus

3- Bike
3- Toa Phosphorus VS { Shoto } .

4- 2 seats racer (land)
4- Super Pikmin VS Toa Infernum

5- Boat
5- L.A. Miranda VS Dark Crusader

6- Single war mount (2 riders)
6- Dylan Mievis VS Glorified Pessimist

7- Two race mounts (1 rider each)
7- Max W. VS HyperShadow623

8- Mount with carriage
8- Kyle Peckham VS Shadowgear 6335


Good luck to all of you, and have fun!

Can the vehicle be alive? I mean, the category is, "War mount," so can the mount be an animal?

Welp, that was fun while it lasted. There's always next year..

Any who, a couple of points for the admins:

No more then 1 free for all round, two free for all rounds really isn't fun, more just tedious.

Never do a mech suit round again, that was painful for a lot of people and I know some just dropped out of because of it.

Switch to a 5 point scoring system, all of the judges rarely scored a 4 or under so there really isn't a pint to having all ten pint if you only ever use 5.

Good luck to everyone!


Thank you for the feedback! It's much appreciated!

Sorry if i sound a bit whiny but my theme really bothers me. All other themes allow you to be much more creative in my opinion where i feel kind of trapped by the bike theme. All other threads like war mount or air vehicle have endless possibilities for how they could look but with bike i feel limited to 2 wheels and some place to stick another rider. I'm not asking you to modify the theme I just think it's something to watch out for when you accidentally box people in with tight restrictions.

No. It can be whatever kind of a bike you want as long as it's clearly a bike and it fits the round requirements and overall rules. It wasn't specified that it should be a land bike, as it happened with other sub-themes. Your sub-theme is a very open one.

*sigh* Well, Phos' problem seems to have been solved somehow, but mine still persists...

I don't know what I should think about the judges. Maybe I should hug everyone of them for thinking that I can make a good, surprising entry even if they put me against the ropes; or kick everyone of them for teasing me like that. xD No offense, dears! It's just that I had a real hard time to build a mech with my available part storage, and now you're asking me for A BOAT. A BOAT. It's totally impossible for me to build a boat big enough for 2 MOCS, specially with one of them being as big as Eruei...!

I don't think I'll be able to get another miracle like the one I achieved with the MEGABLOCK. What's more, it seems that I'm going on a vacation trip in two weeks, so I wouldn't be able to join the Round 4 even if I pass. So, to sum up:

1.- I don't have parts.
2.- I don't have new ideas.
3.- I don't have chances for joining Round 4.

For those reasons, and even if it bothers me so much, I think I won't give you a fight, Shoto. I'm really dissapointed, specially with myself, specially for letting down the expectatives of the judges and the other contestants, bur for not having the matches I wanted to have too. But I can't stress myself so hard again (you may not believe me, but I don't deserve the hard time I passed for not dissappoint everyone in the last round to anyone).

Unless another miracle happens, the BioCup is over for me. Sorry everyone.

So, there are 10 entries and only two complete pairs out of those.
How are the judges going to judge for this round?
Are they going to give a pass to the MOCs that don't have an opponent to go up against, and only judge the ones that do?
Is going to be a free-for-all judging?
Are all the MOCs going to be judged using a rating based system, which will average out the overall scores, then eliminate the MOCs whose average total is below that number?

Quoting L.A. Miranda
Wow, 5 people of 16 dropped. What a bad timing for vacation trips...

Disappointing... At least my opponent posted. :)

We (the Judges) are currently in discussion regarding this situation, as this will greatly affect the way we judge. We will let you know in the next day or so. Keep Calm and MOC on.

Plan and schedule for the long haul. You didn't really think this multi-round contest would be over in a matter of weeks, did you? lol

That aside, things just happen. Plans go awry and you're left with a mess to clean up and adapt to the situation. Life's never nice, so all you can do is Deal with it.

I have to agree. My vacation ship was a surprise from my family, so I couldn't expect it. Also, I didn't even think that the first rounds would be so part-consuming, or the idea of make it into the 3rd Round (it was my goal, yes, but I was sure that I would be defeated in an 1 vs 1 match in the second round with a veteran). Of course my idea was to give my best effort and fight until the very last moment, but ah, things aren't always as one expects.

Since the judges are doing votes and not point scoring, how will they determine who moves on or doesn't out of the matchups where only one competitor posted? (e.g. myself, since Crash didn't post an entry)

I'm assuming that the contestants without an opponent entry would win the round by default.

In previous years, they don't just give you a bye if your opponent doesn't post... then again, they were using points and not votes at that point IIRC, so I don't know. Hopefully one of the judges will clarify though.
