Welcome to Round 3 of the 2012 MIT! Below you will find your match ups with your opponent and your category.
Dates and Times:
Round 3 starts NOW and will end at 11:59 pm, MOCpages time Friday, November 9th. 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: MIT Round 3 "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 MIT 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 three judges for each match up (divided by the brackets). You must receive 2 out of 3 votes to advance to the next round. 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:
Brackets I and IV: Yuri Fassio, Moodswim and Chris Phipson.
Brackets II and III: El Barto, Tiler and Hans Dendauw.
And now...LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!
Master Shifu Leo J vs Justin Knelsen
Board Game: Build a real board game (monopoly, connect 4, Sorry and so on) out of Lego. Please provide a link to something showing the original game (wikipedia works well for reference here but don't feel like you HAVE to use it). You will be judged on accuracy and difficulty level. Anyone can build a chess board with a bunch of squares but to build "Mousetrap" or a working version of "Operation," ...now that would be tough.
Ej! vs John Daniels
80s sitcoms: Family ties, ALF, Growing pains, which is your favorite sitcom from the 80’s? Give us a dio or short story (your choice) using an 80’s sitcom as your inspiration.
daevster vs Rogue Spartan
A Bug's Life: show us life from the perspective of an insect like a fly or ant: giant blades of grass and stones or indoor stuff like food scraps n the kitchen. What would these look like to an tiny creature?
Garret Smith vs Chris Stone
Mash it up! From Spastle to Aquastlenauts to Black Fantastle, builders have been combining themes to come up with some mind blowing creations for years and now it's your turn. Take two (or more) unrelated themes and combine them together to create one, over the top mega theme. They do not need to be existing LEGO themes, so let your imagination go wild!
Those are your match-ups; direct any questions to the Questions thread. Good luck and happy building!~H Permalink
