LADIES AND GENTLEMAN(mostly gentlemen), WELCOME TO THE BIO-KART GRAND PRIX CONTEST, held by the :iconbioniclemocersleague: :D A contest that will push your abilities to MOC a vehicle that can withstand the onslaught of racers vying for that coveted lead position and the many hazards the course has to offer. Does your kart have what it takes to survive the race and make it across the finish line first?


We'll see...

Rules and Judging Criteria

  • Any style of Lego is allowed, System, Technic, Bionicle, or Hero Factory.
  • All entries Must contain a minimum of four rolling wheels, and seat one driver, no exceptions.
  • Your driver can be anyone you wish so long as they to are a MOC or set made of lego elements. Feel free to use a MOC, your favorite bionicle set, who or what ever, so long as its lego.
  • In addition to building a MOC in a "kart" style, You must distribute Stats to your MOC to define its characteristics on a performance level. You are allowed 20 stat points and can distribute them as you see fit in the categories of
    • Speed-The Karts overall top speed.
    • Handling- How well the kart can maneuver and take corners.
    • Acceleration-How quickly the kart can reach its top speed.
    • Weight-The weight of the kart determines if the kart is easily pushed around by other drivers or knocked off the track by racers or hazards. Weight will also play a factor in the juding of speed, handling and acceleration.
    • Attack-The Kart's offensive capabilities. No permanent destruction of fellow racers is allowed, just like in kart racing video games. Placing all your stat points in offense won't do you any good.
    • Defense-The kart's ability to defend against other racers and track hazards.  Same as with Attack, No constant shielding or protection is allowed.
    • The stats should reflect the build, and the build should justify the stats. You can award each category with as many or as little points as you want, but you have a grand total of 20 stat points to distribute across the 6 Categories, spend em well Racers. :D
  • In your Deviations of your entries, you can display your stats by using the :star: :star-half: and :star-empty: emotes to indicate your karts stats, make them easier to read, as well as dressing your deviation up. :D
  • Functionality is not a requirement but will be favorably looked upon, and will increase your kart's chances of winning.
  • The Judging of the contest will be done by the BML admins, myself, Alex-Darkrai, Shorjok, KuroEtShiro and if we get anyone new, them as well. :).

    We will be judging based on the criteria of the Build of the MOC, distribution of stats, relationship between the build and stats, story(so write a good one), and lastly, the relationship between the driver and kart. Does the driver and kart match each other, do they contrast? Does the driver hilariously look too big or small for its kart? You decide.


Timeline
The contest begins now! The sign up period is open between Now and the 24th of December ending at 11:59 California Time. You can sign yup by commenting on this journal stating that you will be entering the contest.  The building period will continue on until the 31st, ending at 11:59PM California time.

Our referees would shoot them down and/or destroy them. Our Referees are Ryakk, Byorak, Neyyis, and basically all of us admin's MOCs. You really wanna get in that fight considering who the admins are and the MOCs we've made? :giggle:

considering the actual "proper" scale of mine i'd take my chances :D
cause technically the pilot suits that drive the mechs are worn by toa-sized robots but i left that out for the race cause it would be ridiculous!!!! =P
ima just joking around tho!!!!!!

3rdeye88 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nope it don't count like that. You want a mech driven by a toa sized MOC, build one, don't puss out and just say it is. Besides...Mechus was that big. You'd still have to fight Ryakk and Byorak together, that's just those two. Both Alex and I have other big MOCs. Your mech would be hosed.

small question would a hover car count?

Not really. It can hover, but its gotta have wheels and roll on the ground at some point.

are there in-game weapons like in mario karts or should i add something to my kart for it to use?
Reply
:icon3rdeye88:
3rdeye88 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You should probably add something. I didn't specify that karts have pick ups and since there's an offense and defense stat, you should incorporate some kind of weapon.

I wonder if I can enter my MOC Toa Nidhiki and his vehicle being normal (mutated) Nidhiki. The fun thing will be that normal Nidhiki's spider legs are replaced with wheels. XD

Maybe the same can be applied to Vezon and Fenrahk or Maxilos and Spinax. XD

As long as it has four wheels and seats a driver, that's all that matters. :)
