Itís my 2nd MOCiversary today! Here are some of the things that made this a great MOCing year for me:
This MOCing year actually starts in July 2013. Summer started and I could build some more. I knew I wasnít a really good builder back then (you can check out my cringe-worthy stuff in the Archives folder of my homepage), so I decided to try something new in the fall. I entered the 2013 MocOlympics. That was a tough decision, especially considering I placed in dead last. After that, I asked myself: Whatís going on in MOCpages?
ďThis LOM thing seems to be cramming the homepage. I should check it out,Ē I said to myself. So I did it. I joined the Lands of Mythron. I ended up not posting anything for it besides my (now deleted) character intro.
From December 2013 to December 2015 was my Dark Ages. I decided to take a break from MOCpages, but I didnít realize it would be two years long. So I treat that time as null and void. Anyway, I made an unexpected return in Christmas 2015. I decided to rejoin LOM with my new skills, in time for the Tourney.
I was out in round one and I now cringe at my entry. Look at that wall! Look at it!
I posted a few builds here and there. Then, something great happened. The MocAthalon started. I signed up, formed a team called the Five Knights in Green Armor, and we placed in 11th. Not bad, right? Here is my most popular and highest scoring MA entry, The Clones Are Coming!
Also in March, I entered two other contests, the MELO and Castle techniques contest. I was out in the first round in both of them, but my entry to the MELO soon became my most popular MOC at 29 likes!
April and May were LOM-heavy months. I posted nine LOM builds in those months alone: seven for the story, one as a MocAthalon entry, and of course, the MOL challenge. The highlights (from top to bottom) were Midnight Raid, The Royal Blacksmith, and Digging.
Season 2 of LOM, more stuff in Contest Central, and The Insurgency.
Yeah, that about does it. Yet another year (or 3 years) on this site. This is a MOCiversary post, so here are a few honorable mentions (in no particular order):
Happy Mociversary! I hope you have many fun building years to come.
Thanks for mentioning me, I enjoyed our time together on the pages and especially the highlight: our LOM crossover with over 10 other friends!
Keep up the good work.
Congratulations! You have incredibly changed your methods lately and I can't say how excited I am to see how you continue building. When I first started, I'm sure I could have confused your creations with mine. ;)
You can do anything you put your mind to City. Congrats!
