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!

Link to the original rules post that I forgot to throw in the last two threads: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9904

Some things to remember as you continue to build: make sure your entry looks enough like the letter for us to know what letter it is based on the ship alone, it needs to have an enclosed cockpit (some gaps are understandable but be reasonable here), and it should to still be small enough to be considered a starfighter (no one has really pushed this yet but a few got close).

So far only a couple of submissions have needed any rebuilding and luckily last round had an extension, but in this round you won't have such a luxury so last minute submissions are ill-advised.

Is there any chance of a deadline extension again? I've got a really busy next couple of days, hopefully I'll be able to throw something together in time! :S

It's been quite a contest so far, and judging by the quality above, it's only going to get better!

I should go and get my build on!!!

Oh man, I have such a case of writer's block (or is that builder's brick?)
Congrats to all who passed onto this round! Good luck to my next opponent, agrahmann, and good luck to me, because I'm really going to need it to have a chance against him...

I'm surprised nobody's out of the gate yet with their entry.

I put something together on Saturday morning once I knew I was through, but I'm not allowing myself to be satisfied with it yet... too much on the line!

Likewise.
My entry's pretty much done, but knowing my opponent will be bringing a great entry, I'm not sure if I'm sold on it yet.

Very nice. Out the winning 16 ships from Round 2 there's only one ship that I don't like, and yet I voted for it in the last round. :D

As this contest progress, it's exciting to see the shades of gray fade away and the colors beginning to pop out in the later rounds.

Is this the thread to post the pictures? Or is there separate ones for each pair? If so where?…. and thanks for the contest, I am having a blast! A little stressed with lack of sleep, but all good fun.

It shows. You've already made it halfway(ish) through and now you're starting to forget the format!

Just to be sure, and to avoid any difficulties tomorrow.The editing I've done to my L-fighter is okay?
