no sweat, dude. looks like a bye/scrimmage for JHawk.

got submissions from everyone else, though sparkle and Cruiser were so confident they skipped the loose ball.

I'll have the results up late tonight probably

Edit: games up in OP

Sparkle, that was the most amazing offense by far. Really fun to watch.


Great job everyone. Jomps, that was great fun... it really brought my back getting to watch some FC football.

This does not count the 30 water rods already on this level (speck under midfield)


HarleyDan and bsking broke this rule.

crap, I missed that. Eyes like a JHawk. Teach me to use 14 month old rules. Very sorry for the screw up, guys, and thank you for catching it.

bsking's defense would not have affected the outcome of the game (I took 2 of the 4 away-- http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11430031), but HarleyDan's infractions on both offense and defense certainly do.

So cool-j and Harley Dan will have a rematch.

We'll just use the next set of levels. cooljenny can submit a set of designs by the regular deadline. I'll match his up against Harley's and then the winner of those 2 against sparkleflower.

Next round is up. Take note:

cool-j and HarleyDan will be rematching with the winner taking on sparkleflower (all these matches will be with the quarterfinal levels)

All 3 designs this week have 22 pieces.

Your loose ball and offense designs should be one single machine (with the goal ball attached for the offense design).

Your defense design does not have this restriction.

No limits on piece types for any of the designs this week.

Sparkle's offense doesn't respect either the "only 3 :woodrod: " rule...

:doh:
my apologies again .
no cheats, just honest mistakes (probably due to overcomplicated rules) and as the ref it was my job to catch them. I just completely forgot about the sticks rules.

I didn't sweat rule violations on the scrimmages. JHawk actually built outside of the build zones, patacoman's defense had an extender that was not attached, and it looks like I overlooked yet another sticks violation with sparkle.

sorry the wildcard round played out like the Steelers/Seahawk's Superbowl. My only excuse was I was trying to figure out the whole FCML cut and paste thing again.

The rules are simpler this time and I will be more vigilant.

I ran over to LAX and had a pow wow with the TSA guy there to help me come up with a nice bureaucratic over-reaction.

So of course he suggested a 2 prong approach. For now I'm gonna hold off on #1: have everyone change their avatar to naked full body scan image of themselves.

But I will go with his other suggestion:

From now on when I get a submission I will verify that it conforms to the rules and send you a PM back confirming that or pointing out any problems. I'll check my inbox at minimum every evening.

If I point out a problem, but don't get a fixed design by the time I'm putting them together Sunday night, I may edit it so it conforms to the rules (delete extra pieces, move pieces back within the build area, connect unconnected pieces, etc)


edit: and again, the rules mess was definitely on me. this will just make sure I check them all better. but I don't want to hold things up if there are last minute submissions with mistakes.

just a public service announcement: I spent a good 20-30 min perfecting a launcher that smacked the goal ball on the loose ball... Forgot about the whole single contraption requirement...
