Well done Clutch Builders and Jigsaw! A good game everyone.

I had a blast judging, I hope everyone had just as much fun playing.


On a side note, I'd like to award best team name to 50 Shades of Bley :-P

Absolutely incredible showing everyone! I really enjoyed watching everyone's build progress over the month and seeing everyone's take on the categories.

It was definitely a lot of fun :)

Though my heart goes out to Jigsaw - as they missed the deadline by minutes for their 30th build... talking about winning by the skin of our teeth...

Well done to all teams. Jigsaw, I represent a good portion of Clutch Builders when I say that you guys deserved first place. Awesome job to everyone in your guys' teams.

Also, Judges, where are the tallies for all the teams? Its kinda depressing for everybody else to just see a list of random stats (which I found super interesting) and not see how their team ranked up.

Long may the Clutch Builders live!

A huge congrats to Clutch Builders, who put up a very strong fight and ultimately bested us. If it weren't for your relentless flow of amazing entries I don't think we would have pushed ourselves to work nearly as hard.

As much as I appreciate the award, I need to point out a few other players on Clutch and Jigsaw who bested me in parts of the category. Jigsaw's Ryan H and Clutch's Kyle Ransom both had flawless averages with all their 3 and 4 respective entries being perfect, while Jigsaw's LEGO Junkie and Clutch's Si MOCs scored a massive 279 and 320 points each (if I counted correctly).

Thanks again to the judges for their dedication through the competition, scoring all the entries and making an exhausting but fantastic month. Extra thanks to Thoy for preparing all the stats!

Overall March really took it out of me, but 11 months will hopefully be enough time to recover!

I find it hilarious how accurate Clutch Builder`s team name is right now :P

But enjoy the win guys. Can`t wait to compete against you next year

:D

Also, for future reference, Rube Goldberg was by far my favorite category. It should be a requisite category in the MO again this year. >:D

I'm the toughest judge, woot! Gotta treat that 5 as it is: a perfect.

As a competitor in every MocAthalon before this, I didn't like the lack of engineering challenges or anything to please the gamers. Thus, Rube Goldberg and It's-a me, Mario! were created. Blake, glad you liked Rube Goldberg!

My scoring may not indicate this, but this was quite an impressive month of mocs! Really, I'm blown away with your efforts, part usages, creativity, and endurance!

Clutch Builders FTW! thanks judges for the awesome contest! and congrats to every contender! Congrats to Jigsaw as if they had entered the last one a few minutes earlier they would have dominated. Maersk blues you also put up a fearsome performance!
most of all thanks to my team for having me, tolerating with me and being completely awesome. you rock!
looking forward to next year ;)

Most sinister and second best average? I'll accept that. ;) Well, I can't rightly say I contributed to the average (at least not in a good way), but I'm more than happy to be the scheming villain... ;)
Congratulations Clutch Builders! I'm still amazed that you guys got all thirty in, and with such top-notch quality at that. Well played guys, you earned the win. Si-MOCs must have some serious lacerations from all that building... And I'd like to thank Blake for initiating a slew of Calvin and Hobbes MOCs. :P
Also, well done to Jigsaw, you guys deserve to lose by more than one point. You've become a MocAthalon legend, and this year your tale will have grown exponentially. Your trend of coming closer to victory each year continues... Next year you'll have to at least tie. ;)
Most of all, I'd like to give a huge thanks to The Maersk Blues, you all put a tremendous amount of effort into this. I'm truly inspired by your incredible work over the last month, and I'm honoured that such talented builders chose to collaborate with me. Elliott took the leap of faith and joined me before anyone else, Noah was a lifesaver when another TFOL had to drop out before the games, Bruce came up with the brilliant team name, and Bart pulled in a stunning amount of points. Thanks guys, you're awesome.
Finally, thanks to Chris and the judges for creating all the fun, hat's off.

Second harshest judge - yay (haha) - not unexspected.

Congratulations to the winners and all other teams who participated! Though there is just one official winner, I think everyone who played wins in a way - coming to enjoy all the great entries, learning techniques from other players or just getting inspiration!
This years MA was fanatastic and even if my scores don't show it everytime, I was much impressed by some people, which developed their skills from the last years to now or within the contest time. Again it was a honor to be an judge (three years in a row now)!

I'm not sure why i'm not listed at the "Accurate Player awards" with my 283 Points.

But congratulations to all teams and contestants!
Great job and thank you for this great month of building :)

And of course thank you judges for your work!

See you all at the MocOlympics? :D

Well played all!

This year was definitely the most competitive yet.

Congrats to Clutch Builders!

Wow, what a competition.

I think it's safe to say that this may go down as one of the closest and best fought of them all. While I'm crazy proud of my team for pulling out the win, Jigsaw, you guys rock!

Thanks to the judges for sacrificing their time to help put this on. And also to Si-Mocs for some brilliant help and encouragment.

I am looking forward to what next years MA will bring. :)

I can't say how proud I am of my teammates.
The effort everybody put out was above and beyond the call all month long, and we wouldn't have come nearly as close if it wasn't for each and every member of the team.

it was an impressive run gents!

Big congrats to Clutch Builders for their win!
Without you guys spewing fantastic entries into the group pool, I don't think we would have done nearly as well.
Your excellence pushed us to better ourselves, and it worked out well!

It's somewhat surprising to me that the scores were so high this year, seeing as Common Elements won with 740 points last year, while this year, the top two (almost three) teams blew past those numbers by a longshot.

Way to raise the bar fellow competitors!

Next year should be very interesting indeed.

Very impressive year, congrats to all! Also congrats to Clutch Builders, though I think I could tell they would win, either them or Team Jigsaw. So, judges thanks for this year. But, I'm not through with you yet...I'm coming back next year! You still have to deal with me. >:D (HA! Like I'm any threat to Clutch Builders...)

Congratulations team Clutch Builders! A hard fought and well deserved win! I'll post the info on claiming your prizes in your team group.

To all the players... wow. Every single one of you stepped up your game and every year the contest gets harder and harder. Both to judge and to compete in! Every one of you deserves a big thank you for making this the most fun and exciting MocAthalon yet!

To the judges. I've already told you in the judges group but let me just say that you all REALLY busted your (bleeps) this year. And a special thank you to Thoy who not only kept track of all the scores but went the step further by figuring out all the fun stats that goes along with all these numbers. You rock man!

This has been an amazing contest this year and I really can't wait for next year's! Every year this contest blows the last year's one out of the water. Seeing what I saw this year... man... next year... I can't wait!

Thank you everyone and we'll see you in August for the MocOlympics!

~Chris.
