Okay, I'm not quite sure what these Tiers are. You mean rounds?

with one of the admin's approval, this is how I think it should be:

Total 15 members. 12 contestants, 6 UNE 6 COP. 3 judges.

Elimination.

And the end of each tier (round) 2 people (one from COP one from UNE) are eliminated from the contest.

By the finals there will only be 2 people left, 1 UNE, 1 COP member. The finals will decide the best player.

what do you think?

How to judge suggestion:

The three judges rank the players from first (best entry) to last (least competent) entry.

This method could apply to the first 5 rounds. Each of the lowest ranked players (one from UNE one from COP) are eliminated, until round 5 when there will only be 2 players left (the best from both the COP and UNE). these two players then compete for their entire group. There will only be one winner out of 12 players.

Suggestion on Finals;

I think there should be two or three finals specifically between the Finalists. The topic of the however-many-tiers can be decided upon by the finalists. Basically, the Finally should be a
F-I-N-A-L-L-Y!

True, or maybe we can change the rules so that there are a total of 10 players altogether and there are 2 'auditionary' rounds where a total of 2 people from each team are eliminated per round (4 people per round total) so round 3 would be the finals and there'd be only one person from each team to compete. Then there are a total of 3 rounds for the last two people to compete against each other (so 3 rounds in the finals)

And yeah....

You're still left with 5 rounds, and 8 people won't even get to round 3.

What do you think?

Makes sense. But I'm not sure I would want to spend the Finals building something legit as a Frigate, then going to something minuscule such as a weapon, back to another ship.
Hows about we change the rounds to the following:
Tier 1: A holdout vig
Tier 2: A microscale ship
Tier 3: An aerospace fighter
Tier 4: A ground vehicle
Tier 5: An epic win microscale ship

We can use the minnifig weapons can be a bonus-round or something.

Sounds cool, but I vote this:

Tier 1 ('auditionary' round 1): Hold out Vig
Tier 2 ('auditionary' round 2): micro scale frigate
Tier 3 (finals 1): Civilian vehicle
Tier 4 (finals 2): Aerospace vehicle
Tier 5 (final finals): Anything.

Yeah, anybody should be able to make a hold out vig, that's why it's tier one. Tier two is a little more specialized, though frigates are still a fairly universal thing to make.

Then tier 3 and 4 are highly specialized, just for the two surviving contestants. Then as a kind of almost reward, the final round you get build anything you could possibly want, therefore the two best players get to show off their best strengths.

Perhaps, if one of the two players lost both round 3 and 4, if he still wins the final round, it becomes a tie.

I suppose I'm just judging, not participating? I'll build along nevertheless.

Question: 'Vig' is a term that is loosely tossed around. By Lego definition, it means the scene is built on an 8x8 base. Are the judges going strictly by that rule?

Yeah I guess anything between 8X8 and 16X16...
