When will the main group be made? I've seen teams, but not the real group.


Yadyap asked this question in the Help Group so I just moved it here.

As for the answer... Soon, very, very soon.

We're looking at opening the group in about 2 weeks. The judges have started getting categories ready and we're going over the rules to get things ready.

Go ahead and start getting your teams ready! I'll make a comment here when the group opens and I'll also have a link to it on my homepage when it's up and running.

Good luck everyone and I hope to see you all there!

We might enter the contest.


Since my brother and I share this account, would we count as 2 people (5 people per team; max 2 AFOLs - from my understanding)?

What if you want to compete, but don't have a team? Is there a place where singles can be put into teams that are missing a couple of people?

Don't worry about that. That's why we open the group a couple weeks early to make sure that we get people into teams who need them.

There's been some debate about that recently. As of right now, you would only count as one BUT... don't hold to that. It's one of the things we're discussing and you could very easily count as two once the group opens up. Remind us when the group opens in the questions thread and we'll let you know.

Do you know of a team that would suit me? In other words, a beginning contest group thing. In other words a team with builders like me.

My questions are will the teams still be 5 members and only 2 AFOL's max again and will there be a provision for allowing substitutions on a team should one or more members decide to quit after the contest has already started? I ask because I don't want to join a team again only to have most of it's members decide to bail out and leave the remaining members hanging like what happpened to Parrington and me last year.

The team set up will be the same with 5 members, 2 afols max. As far as there being bailouts and subs, that's something we will address if it happens but most likely, we'll allow subs in cases like that. It wouldn't be fair to the remaining players to have to go at it if 2 or 3 members decide to bug out.

I never competed in a MOCathon (pretty much because I made an account in 2011) but the contest seems interesting.


All I want to know is how do we compete in a MOCathon,What are the rules,etc.
