Title: 2016 f.ds Mafia Game Awards: Nominations open!
Post by: faust on December 12, 2016, 06:57:32 pm
We are now taking nominations for all categories listed below.

Mafia Game of the Year
Players, mods, and spectators should nominate the most memorable game from 2016, based on the player/spectator experience.  This award highlights and recognizes the overall best game held during 2016, and includes all aspects of a mafia game on f.ds.  When someone asks, "hey, what game should I reread to know if I should start playing mafia at f.ds?," this should be the first game that comes to mind.

Mafia Setup of the Year
Players, mods, and spectators should nominate the most impressive original setup introduced in 2016 based on the player/spectator experience.  This award highlights and recognizes setup creation by a mod, and focuses on all the important aspects of a good game of mafia: including balance, roles, and thematic interactions.

Flavor of the Year
We all know that writing flavor can be a hard and grueling task.  This award recognizes those mod specifically who put the time in to choose, implement, and write flavor that improves the game experience, while not disadvantaging players who don't know the flavor.  Players, mods, and spectators should nominate the most spectacular flavor used in a game in 2016.

Town Player of the Year
Players, mods, and spectators should nominate the one player that they would rank as the absolute best when given the town alignment in 2016. This award highlights and recognizes a player that best embodies the virtues of good, and includes characteristics such as strong scumhunting, the ability to convince fellow players of good ideas, plans, setup theory; and appropriate and impactful use of night actions.

Scum Player of the Year
Players, mods, and spectators should nominate the one player that they would rank as the absolute best when given an anti-town alignment in 2016. This award highlights and recognizes a player that best embodies the virtues of (in-game) evil, and includes characteristics such as an uncanny ability to fool everyone else, extraordinary skill at exploiting any extra information received as scum, phenomenal fake claims, and impactful use of night actions.

Newbie of the Year
Players, mods, and spectators should nominate the one player who debuted in 2016 that rises above the rest, regardless of alignment.  This award highlights and recognizes a new player's ability to quickly and accurately learn metas, rules, setups, and make an immediate positive impact on f.ds's mafia world.

Most Fun to Play With
We all know that playing mafia on f.ds isn't all about wins and losses, about stats and flavor. First and foremost, it is a social experience. This award takes the social dimension of mafia games into account: Players, mods and spectators should nominate the one player they are always happy to see on a signup list. This award highlights and recongizes a player's ability to turn a game into a great experience, and includes characterics such as friendliness, wit and the ability to deescalate tense in-game situations.

Best Performance in a Single Game
Players, mods, and spectators should nominate the single best performance by one player in a game held in 2016.  This award highlights and recognizes an extraordinary performance as any alignment, and may include characterics such as stellar scumhunting, taking the most use out a power role, winning a game through thorough planning and theorycrafting as well as unusual and effective fakeclaims.

Mod of the Year
Players, mods, and spectators should nominate the absolute best mod of 2016, based on their performance at all aspects of running a game.  This award highlights and recognizes a mod's attention to detail, creativity, and dedication to the game and f.ds.  Specifically, this should include setup creation and explanation, flavor writing, and accuracy in vote counts and rulings, and availability to the players.

That actually might be better considering most people probably remember the last 6 months better than the beginning of the year

The fact that it took people until August 2018 to notice should give you a decent idea as to why that is.

I'm torn between saying we should give 2017 its proper ceremony belatedly and saying we should skip it but definitely do one for 2018 in January.

2017 and 2018 could be done together.
