I would like to announce the opening of the "MOCS Contest", hosted by Hadden Kurtz. It starts right after Round 1 ends, so if you get eliminated in Round 1 (or you want to be in 2 contests at once), you should participate in that.
In Lego contests, the amount of people that advance from the first round is the highest "Power of two" that can be made with the number of entries. If you play the game 2048, I'm sure you will be familiar with the sequence: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64...
The reason for this is to make sure that there is always one person left at the end. For example, if we took in the top 12, there would be 12 in Round 2, 6 in Round 3, and 3 in Round 4. How will we put those three into match-ups?
Now with the people that advanced to Round 2, they are seeded "high-low bracket style." In our case, where 16 advanced, that would mean 1st plays 16th, 2nd plays 15th, 3rd plays 14th, etc. This is so the top 50% of people that advanced to Round 2 do not have to play each other until Round 3.

Thanks a lot Chris for spoiling this contest. XD
Anyway, if you haven't realized yet, the MocOlympics have now started. We might make a few changes to the MMO to accommodate for that. Judges, to the lounge! We have a few things to discuss. Permalink
