2013 MOC Madness Tournament: Round One Starts Now!

Postby Staff » Sun Nov 17, 2013 3:44 am

Bracket 1
The sixty four entry limit flew by Thursday afternoon and we're on schedule to kick off the next phase. The bracket above (click for full res version) shows all of the competing pilots, each paired off with their first challenger and the letters they'll be using for their starfighters. If you registered before the deadline and your pilot is shown above you can start building right away. The deadline for this round is next Sunday at 8pm Pacific time and you can find dedicated threads for each match up right here in the contest forum (you may need to check the second page, there are 32 threads in this opening round). The polls will go up shortly after that deadline and run for only two days before the next round starts.

Are we allowed to do either the Uppercase or the Lowercase variant of the letter, or are we limited only to the uppercase?

Wait, we actually have to build a fighter? Putting my minfig together was stressful enough! :)

Been a while since I participated in a contest here. Are off-brand or modified parts allowed?

Either case is fine.

GL everybody! Let the lettering begin. XD
BTW, that FBTB round up poster of all 64 entries is done very well. Nice layout and super cool formation. ;)

is it alright if it only looks like the letter in flight mode, or attack mode, like the x-wing?

Yes, I've been wondering about this too!

I clarified this in one post but I'll put it here too:
In every submission thread I wrote:Include one photo you'd like to use as the polling image, one photo demonstrating the letter, and one showing your pilot in the cockpit.
You're allowed three photos as described above, but if you want to use the profile shot as the poll image that's fine too. The first image will be used for the poll unless you specify otherwise in your posts. Also if you have more shots you want to share just link to them in your submission post.

Even though I'm not participating (don't have time!), I'm pretty sure all the entries will come on Saturday evening. Pretty sure.

Well, not "all" of course since two have already popped up, but most is probably a safe bet.

Solo, is there an easier way to check entries out than clicking on all these links?

Nice! Which two have already come up? Good job on their part, not procrastinating, like I would have. :lol:

Mmmmnope. Gonna have to view all those threads to vote anyways. That's as easy as you can do it in a forum like this. Hopefully everyone will add their ships to the flickr group though.
