Round 6
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Welcome to Round 6, Martin and Jacob, and congratulations on making it to the final! It’s been a long road, and while Bilbo has said “roads go ever on and on,” this particular one is coming to an end. You’ve both proven your salt; now pour all you’ve got into your final entries! In true Middle Earth fashion: make this a round worthy of songs for years to come!
But enough with the motivational speaking! You chaps know the drill. The rules are the same as they’ve been for the past 5 rounds, only there are no longer any brackets. Remember your links, appropriate titles, and category descriptions and you’ll be good to go!

Round 6 begins now and ends at 11:59pm (MOCpages time) on THURSDAY (4/4/13). I’m giving you a full two weeks, due to Easter weekend. No Round 6 entries will be accepted into the group after the time specified above.

And now gents, the final category: Your judges are Michael Kringe, Ian Spacek, Max Pointner, Chris Baldacci, Mark Murphy, and Aidan Moon (your tie-breaker judge will be Paul Vermeesch, if the occasion should arise).


Martin Geistefeldt vs. Jacob Nion
Category: Quote
"One ring to rule them all
One ring to find them
One ring to bring them all
And in the darkness bind them."


I haven’t a clue how you’ll implement this quote into one solid build, but you’re going to! Show us creativity that will blow our minds. Good luck chaps!

Round 6 is now in full swing!

Jeez! I didn't expect something like a quote. I feel a little bit like Harry Potter trying to understend the spell of the golden egg.

Well, if you add it right now, you're still fine! And you might as well, because Martin hasn't either.

Okay, now it should let you. The date on your entries page says the 4th, so you're fine.

Thanks. But now I have to explain how this entry came out. I started to build two hours ago, that means 4:00 a.m. in Europe. For two weeks I could only imagine one idea for my entry, and it was hardly feasible. So I resigned and purposed to give up. Until 4:00 am. I wanted at least to build something because that's always better than simply make nothing. Seems like I was just in time.

I am sorry for all of you who looked forward to great entries. I guess after 5 rounds my creativity was a bit burned out.

And I want to say thank you to Ian and all the judges. Nevertheless it was an amazing contest and I am glad to have taken part in it.

It looks as though you may be the winner! Martin hasn't posted and it's past the deadline. I hope he didn't think he had until Sunday. Admittedly this is not quite the grand finale I had imagined (finalist by default), but hey, congratulations Jacob!

It's too bad it came down to a forfeiture, but congratulations, Jacob! You created a great series of MOCs for the contest. I think my favorite of yours was that eagle you did for 'Mount Doom'.

Unless for some reason you feel like being merciful to Martin for the sake of competition (if he pops up with a creation), I'll send you a private invite to a 1 on 1 group for prize/mailing info, etc., sometime this weekend. You've won fair and square!

Quoting Martin Geistefeldt
XD Oh man, I'm soo stupid! THURSDAY!! Not SUNDAY!! Yep, looks like I was so busy with my last entry that didn't notice that Thursday is the deadline for round 6. In the other rounds I've looked the dates up for a thousand times, but not in round 6! Well, I'm going to upload it anyway. Would have never thought that the end of this contest will look loke this...

I guessed as much, it was kinda' tricky to change the deadline after saying for so long "the rules are the same as last round," but I didn't want you chaps to have to post on Easter Sunday. I'll still be very eager to see your entry!

Quoting Martin Geistefeldt


Okay you two, I have an unusual proposal to make--first I need to say that by the current rules, Jacob won fair and square, so he has the option to just claim the prize right now--but if you're both up for it, I'm willing to extend the deadline again so that Jacob has time to build a full scale model and Martin still gets to post what he's currently working on. If I gave you guys until a week from Sunday, would you both be up for that? Once again, I know this is highly irregular and if Jacob wants the prize with out any risk, all he has to do is say the word. For the sake of an epic last round though, I just thought I'd throw the idea out there.

If you chaps could get back to me ASAP, I'd appreciate it.

I think my answer is obvious. Although I do not need another full week (and I will upload my entry as soon as my pics are ready), I'm up for the extended deadline. An epic final is the least for such a great contest.

Very well. I thought about this situation one night and one day.
First of all, I would not be able to use this week to work on a new entry; the summer semester is going to start and from monday I'll busy at university.

So how to decide? Martin would have won rightly if he had sticked to the deadline. But I am convinced that rules are fundamental for a contest. There were a few cases of missed deadlines at this MELO and everytime the decision was made in favour of the rules.

To cut a long story short, I claim the victory.

I repeat that I am sorry that the final wasn't as epic as expected. I'm looking forward to a maybe future MELO and want to thank Ian and the judges for making such an awesome Tolkien based contest possible. We had a great time and great entries and I am sure, if there will be a future MELO it will become an established and very popular contest.

That's an entirely fair decision and I'll get to you about the prize shortly. :)

I see your point Jacob, and I'm respecting your decision. Thanks again to everyone who was part of this great competition, and especially to Ian! Would've never thought I'd come so far...well...looks like next time I should better read the rules!

Well, it is over. Great job to Jacob with the win, and to everyone who participated.

Thanks a TON to Ian for putting together such a great contest that has produced some really high quality LOTR creations. I for one can say that my building skills have increased noticably during this contest.

I look forward to doing this again next year.

I will echo the comments made about the contest: it was a lot of fun to do and a lot of fun to watch!!!

I enjoyed the challenge of the builds and the element of competition. I look forward to next year! Thanks!

Congratulations Jacob!

Thanks to Ian, Max, and the judges for putting on such a great contest. It was a pleasure to build in and I did some of my best work while competing, the categories were well-choosen to stimulate the "creative juices". This was one of the best organized contests I've seen, a role model to anyone else who hopes to start one. I hope that this becomes an annual competition, for even if I've not the time to enter I'd surely enjoy seeing everyone's brilliant entries.
