Is the alternates sign up for people who made the MIT and want to be an alternate for the MO or is it for people who did not make the MIT to be an alternate here?

When do we start? Really a basic question.

September 30th. See the rules.

If this goes like before (I think), will we be doing the same categories as the real MO?

The alternate sign-up is only for the MIT and only if received a score from the 1st Round of the MOs. ~H

For some reason it wasn't on the list that Chris e-mailed me, but it has been fixed. You are eligible to be an alternate, so sign up in that thread.~H

Wait, so what's the point in the MIT? Like, do you get a prize?


Last year, when I played, you could get a prize, but maybe they will do the same this year.

Can you please let the others compete? Its unfair that we can't join the MIT this year, and its our ONE chance! I don't like how you don't let all of us compete. :/

Listen, your ONE chance was in the MOC Olympics First Round; everyone that signed up was allowed to play. This contest was created to try and expand the head to head play, keeping more people involved for a while longer, which is happening; 32 people, that would otherwise be done, get to continue playing. There were more than enough people, but apparently not enough interest. ~H

Unfortunately, even with the alternates, we were short of the 64 players needed for bracket play, so we had to drop down to 32. If you look through the conversation threads, you'll see that this has already been discussed at great length. Sorry, better luck next year.~H

You're really over thinking it if you have to ask what a theme is, but the short answer is yes, robots and castle is a perfect example. As for what/how much you build, that is up to you to decide; if we wanted more specific guidelines, we would have given them. Considering it's a contest, doing as much as you can in the allotted time is always the best way to go.~H

It may also be a smart idea to go back and look at the entries from past MOs and MITs. That should give you a better idea of what the judges are after, and also make sure you don't do something that's been done already.
