I might do something like this in November. Because, in November, it will be my 5th MOCiversary.

It's a number of themes.

Themes will generally orbit around sci-fi, humor and bad taste.

"Themes will generally orbit around sci-fi, humor and bad taste."

I believe "Invasion From Below" covers all three of those... ;D

Also inb4 this contest is overlapping the SMoT, by only a week... It's gonna be pretty demanding for people in both. :P

It has been a while, things have taken precedence over things. I'm surprised, and here I always thought you were the cheapest SOB on the site. Anyway, this'll be fun. I've got my 3rd anniversary of joining on the 29th of this month.

Aww! I'd love to take part, I just doubt I've got the time (because I'd obviously have to endure for 5 Rounds). ;)

I have lots of time on my hands especially considering surviving 5 rounds is a near impossibility for me but either way sounds fun. And I need to do more contests.

Hey Yuri, I see you filled the judging positions (was going to offer my services) so I will see what I can do about entering - I too am trying to get more photos into Mike's book via his dark contest (luckily, i've already got some in before he started the contest!) and have a massive sort to do, but your suggestion that humour, bad taste and sci-fi are involved is right up my street!

Oh what the heck I think I'll try a round or so. Been wanting to get into a contest on here for a while, just never seemed like a good (or fair) time. This looks pretty casual, so I think it'll be a good first contest for me here. So a theme about bad taste that sounds fun. Guess I should start early on my Miley Cyrus MOC. XD

We're halfway through with only 1 official entry... even I am starting to worry.
This reminds me of the time I was the only one at work who scored a vacation during a holiday... because I was the only one who asked :) over 600 people just assumed they wouldn't get it anyway!

Don't worry, Yuri. Usually it means better quality entries. I know mine is pretty good, and I still need a bit to finish it.

Well, since this was an eliminatory round, I'd say it served its purpose, huh?
And no, I know it's risky, but I always sustained that changing the rules after a game starts is not fair.

Thanks Yuri, R2 was a lot of fun. I'm a bit surprised that each team only produced 5 entries... still, once again it means most of us who did post will progress. I wonder what new twist R3 will bring?

Correction: Team Odds produced 6 entries, Even produced 5. Looks like the Odds are in their favour...

The rules state that the last member of the winning team and the first of the losing team will trade places, and that dropouts from the winning team will be covered with the losing team's best players.

so by that rule then anyone in the top 3 of their own group should move on. (1 trading, and 2 to fill the 2 empty spots) leaving those in 4th and 5th to hope for team victories. should get interesting!
