Round 2!
 Group admin 
The Rules:

1- This round is again a straightforward free-for-all, where the top 16 scores will pass on to Round 3. The remaining players will be thrown into Johann's trash compactor.
Direct match-ups will start from r3.

2- Time Frame - You have until July 14, MOCpages time, to enter you MOC. Entries posted outside this time frame will be void.

3- Entries - This should go without saying, but yeah, only one entry per person.

4- Reminder - remember to specify that your MOC is an entry for the 2013 Bio Cup (you can title it any way you want) and to add a link to you entry's page right in the round 2 entry thread once you're sure everything's OK.

When in doubt, double-check the rules and/or ask us. Better safe than sorry.

The Theme:

The theme for Round 2 is...



"Suit up!"

Get your character and build a cool mech/hardsuit/power armor for him to wear/pilot into battle! you can theme the mech after your character (think Batman and his Bat-stuff) or devise an original look for it, as you prefer.
There are no size restrictions.


-Feel free to apply some minor adjustments to your character. You can tweak some details if you're not happy with them, it won't affect judging.

-DON'T SCRAP YOUR CHARACTER as long as you keep winning. You can do as you please with the machine.

And finally, the list with all the contestants who have passed to this round (courtesy of Berial):

01 - L.A. Miranda - 8,83

Recognize this?

-DON'T SCRAP YOUR CHARACTER as long as you keep winning: it will represent you in the games and it will be the focus of most categories.

BUT this round's rules also state

-Feel free to apply some minor adjustments to your character. You can tweak some details if you're not happy with them, it won't affect judging.

You'll have to think if what you did is a "minor tweak" or more. After all, you were duly warned.

Well, surely a major part of it... There was a lot of speculation and doubts in the questions threads. Not your duty to read them, I know... But hey, I know you have about a hundred other MOCs still assembled, can't you borrow pieces from them instead? Well, your call, anyway, just don't do anything too drastic :P

I don't want to cite any specific examples to give anybody ideas, but is it safe to assume that in this round the judges will be a bit more liberal in their judging? There are many, many different ways to interpret the category, so I'd like to ask the judges to all keep an open mind towards any entry, and not to look down on them simply because they don't fit your understanding of a "proper mecha". I'd hate to have to redo an entry based on a misunderstanding, after all.

We kept the description vague on purpose. Whether it's a mech, hardsuit or power armor, and whether your character pilots it or wears it, it makes no difference.

...

I knew it...

And even if I knew this would happen, I decided to go with the entry I made... *sigh*

ATTENTION JUDGES: due to a lot of random circunstances (mainly the current availability of parts), there's a 95% of probabilities that I won't be able to enter this round. The design of Eruei makes pretty difficult to make a proper mech, armor suit or similar that fits him, and it's even harder with my lack of parts. While I still have some ideas which I'll try to develop, I want to inform that the most probable option for me is to quit.
So, I want to ask you if there is the option to choose a 33rd contestant among the 7 tied ones for replace myself in the case I couldn't be able to join, because I don't want to steal other MOCer's chance to have fun here. Even if I was the one who passed, I would feel bad for the ones who could have the chance if I hadn't joined.
I will personaly talk to the 33rd MOCer to explain him the situation, if you accept my proposal.

You have the alternatives of a hardsuit and power armor aswell.

You can try searching for old Bio Cup mech/hardsuit entries for inspiration.

I recommend using your own imagination though. Your own limitations could be the key to an original entry.

Just ask yourself "Is my MOC a Mech, hardsuit of power armor?" and "Does my character wear or pilot it?"
If the answer to both questions is yes, whatever you do is fine.

Even with that, you shouldn't respond like you did. Trolls and haters are everywhere, dear, and they only want attention. So ignore them, and you win.

Well, everyone, I'm glad to announce that I have managed to built something similar like a Mech for Eruei. Maybe it won't be even valid, but I'm afraid that's the only thing you are going to get from me. I'll post it tomorrow, probably.

LA, you need to build tuxedo armor. It's quite a fitting topic for your R1 entry, after all. (Hardsuit... suit... tuxedo...) :P


But he already wears one... TUXEDONCEPTION!?

Now seriously, I already tried. I have designed 6 different armors and mechs for him, and no one worked. This one.... Well, it's the only one which as an acceptable look with only HF bones and some large Technic bars, at the same time that keeps my... style. =P

Quoting L.A. Miranda

Even with that, you shouldn't respond like you did. Trolls and haters are everywhere, dear, and they only want attention. So ignore them, and you win.

I understand that, so pardon on my behalf... I'm rather sensitive towards insults, hence why I tend to begin to argue. It's a defense reaction of sorts.

Everyone is sensitive when someone attacks him/her. The issue is... How to return the attack so they suffer more! 8D

I am relinquishing my spot in round two. Sorry. I was originally just going to throw together a moc for round two but I realized I wouldn't be able to make the round 3 due to my vacation's time period. So I'm giving my spot to one of the alternates. Seeing as that would make more since and how last year it bothered me when people got free rides to the next round when their opponent couldn't make the time frame. Okay, that is all.

There are no alternates for this round. If you don't post you will simply lose, and the 16 best scores will still pass to round 3.
I'm rather disappointed, but thanks for the heads up, you saved us trouble with r3 matchups.

Sorry man, even if we were to choose alternates, we'd have to ask those before you first. Like those who were tied for last place.
If we did that, we'd need to first vote for a new tie-breaker, inform the winner and wait for his reply, and by the time 'd even get to choose someone, most of the round would have passed.

Well seeing that there is no alternates for this round it is still quite tempting to try to make an entry, but the idea of me giving someone a free ride in round 3 make me cringe.
Well, good luck to the remaining contestants.

With alternates, you'd have given someone a free ride to r2, so what's the difference...
I still hope to see an entry from you.

Sadly my laptop's hard drive failed last minute right after transferring my pics onto it. Regrettably there was not enough time left for me to take new pics, transfer them onto another (slower) computer, re-type the story, and upload the pics onto the site. I hope to join you all again next year. Good luck to the victors of round one!

It just has to be awesome. As long as it abides by the theme's description (mech, hardsuit or power armor, character must wear or pilot it) the rest is up to you.

So, folks, I think you should know I won't be able to judge this current round, so don't expect any comment of mine on your entries. Reason is that I'll be traveling, so actually, don't expect me to appear at all anytime between this Friday and the 22nd of this month.

Ok, what you should do is post the pictures on flickr, and create a page for your moc here, so that you can post it in the entry thread. The page of your moc has got to have the link to his pictures on flickr, and you should do this as fast as you can seeing that we've been saying since the beginning of the contest that there would be no extensions to anyone. Since this is a technical issue outside your control and you did after all finish your entry before the deadline, I'll open up an exception for this case only. But then again I feel the need to say this again, do as fast as you can... if you take too long it will look suspicious and we will be forced not to allow your entry.
