Below you will find your matchups with your opponent and your category.
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:
The final round starts NOW and will end at 11:59 pm, MOCpages time Sunday, December 23rd (No, that's not a typo, you get two full weeks). 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 7 "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.
There will be SIX judges for each matchup. You must receive 4 out of 6 votes to be crowned this year's winner. 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.
Backup judge, Mark Kelso (If needed).
And the category for the 2012 MocOlympics final match is:
Tom Remy vs Heath Flor in:
Build us a battle between two mages of the mystic arts. Be sure to include their magical "effects" as they throw spells with wanton abandon. The inspiration for this category came while watching Loony Tunes and I saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNvI4tEtzBQ&feature=related Please use ONLY the "wizard world" stuff as your inspiration... We don't need a moc of Daffy Duck blowing up a hotdog in a microwave.
Good luck to both of you and may the best moccer win! Permalink
Hey everyone, it seems like Heath had some uploading issues. He left a comment saying that he missed the deadline, although the comment was stamped at 11:52pm and his MOC said it was posted on the 23rd. Either his clock at home is a few minutes fast, or I'm not reading this right. Is Heath disqualified or is he still in the game? Permalink
Quoting Cody G

I think in this stage of the game it's inapproprate to disqualify a contestant, especially when it's so close. Permalink
Aaaan my vote has been cast, I made it my policy not to look at the comments before judging, that way I'm absolutely sure that there's no way that the other judges influence my decision.
I'm not saying they would otherwise if I would have viewed the comments first but I can't know that for sure can I ?
Anyway, It was a fun thing to do, being a big shot mocolympics judge is thougher than I thought, 'choosing is losing', when I say to one contestant that he has my vote I have to tell another he doesn't :(
But that's the nature of a contest.
