MOC Madness Round Three Build Phase Ends Tomorrow Night

Just under twenty two hours remain in the sweet sixteen round of the tournament, and so far only six ships have surfaced. Seems like tomorrow is going to be a busy day polishing off those builds and getting them submitted. Friendly reminder that the deadline remains at 8PM PST Wednesday December 11th. The good news is with fewer contestants remaining  the polls won’t take so much time to set up, so, stay tuned for tomorrow night as the rest of the builders report in.

2013 MOC Madness Tournament: Round Three Now In Progress

Bracket 3Round two ended last night with the close of the polls, and all of the victorious ships are available to browse below. Some really tough competition and it’s only going to get harder as we progress. We’re back to the five day build and two day voting cycle, putting the deadline for builders in round three at 8PM PST on Wednesday December 11th. All of the submission threads are ready and waiting in out contest forum. We’re down to a quarter of the starting lineup, so with only sixteen competitors left I hope the odds are against any more no-shows from here on out. Good luck everyone and keep up the great work!

MOC Madness Round Two Extended Build Phase Ends Tomorrow Night

Quick reminder for you builders taking advantage of the postponed deadline: you now have less than thirty one hours left to complete and submit your ships this round. As long as you get them in by 8PM PST Wednesday December 4th  and everything meets the rules you’ll be ready to go for the next round of polls. With half still MIA and two more  in need of revisions to qualify I can see the next day being a bit touch and go. I recomend avoiding last minute submissions if at all possible because you can never be completely certain you got everything right, and you’re only hurting yourself leaving no margin for error. If you like to live on the edge though, well, good luck you crazy rogues!

MOC Madness Round Two Update: Deadline Extended To Wednesday Night

In a rare turn of events we’ve decided to give all you builders couple more days to complete and submit your ships for this round of our tournament. With the deadline originally slated for tomorrow night and only five entries submitted and one confirmed drop out, we now realize we had underestimated just how brutal a five day build window would be while overlapping a major US Holiday. This puts the deadline for this round on Wednesday December 4th, 8PM Pacific time, and the polls will go live that night and end on Friday. The remaining rounds will continue to follow the five day build two day poll layout, just offset due to this extension.
