Round 3
 Group admin 
Welcome to the third round of the 2016 Mini MocOlympics! The 8 of you are in a special group that we will refer to as ďThe Elite Eight.Ē This is the make-or-break round: all you need to get a podium position is to win one more MOC-off. Nice motivation, right?

All the rules are the same as always. Please read the rules thread if you need a brush-up.

Since there are four match-ups, I decided to do something involving the number four. The first thing that came to my mind was the four elements. Each match-upís theme will be one of the four. I canít wait to see how you guys interpret these!

Here are your match-ups:

Lobo 630 vs Sam Jensen: Fire

Justin Li vs Hadden Kurtz: Water

Geology Joe vs Mitchell Long: Earth

Connor R. vs C Stucky: Air

The deadline will be on Friday, August 26 at 11:59 pm server time. Good luck!

So what exactly am I supposed to build? An air craft? Something abstract that represents air?

You're not a good builder?!!!! What ate you talking about? You're great! And I am stumped on the topic, I have 4 ideas, and I am trying to figure out what will best portray the topic. Definitely going to be pushing the time with this one! :)

Time is getting short. You have till the rest of the day, and we're still waiting for 3 entries.

Hopefully we'll have a build depicting the Agni Kai between Zuko and Azula for our fire category. If one of you doesn't have that started...
you have a little under 11 hours...
no pressure.

My votes have been cast. I'm disappointed there was no bending in the arena, (Those Equalists are savage beasts...), but you guys had some great entries once again. Thanks!

I have to say, I'm not sure how I feel about going against an entry that is technically 3 entries (nothing personal against you, Roanoke). The two judges who voted for my opponent each voted on a different build, so it's almost like I'm competing against 3 different people.

I'm not saying you guys absolutely have to do something, but I just want to let you know how I feel.

Sorry, I didn't know that it is not all that great to do more than one build in an entry, I wanted to make the topic where it is not constricted to one thing, especially with a topic like water. But I would if the votes the judges show any large signs of ifs, go out rather than move on, and make someone feel cheated on. Sorry about that!

For the record, I only judged his first build.

Well unfortunately, I've already got three votes against me which means I'm leaving this contest. I want to thank all of you, especially City Creator, for hosting (and participating) in this great little contest. It was a good experience as my first Lego contest. You can also be sure that I will be watching the last stages play out :)

No no no, it's completely fine. The purpose of my comment was just to provide an opinion, not influence the judges in any way.
