Player of the Year 2017 Nominations
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:33:00 AM »
That's right folks. In spite of all of the talk of the game dying before it could happen again, the calendar keeps moving forward and IW's pulse keeps beeping on life support, no matter how slowly. And that means it's time for another Player of the Year vote. Naturally, this calls for nominations.

The Rules:
1) You can't nominate yourself.
2) You can nominate folks for whatever reason, be it a content contribution, gameplay, or just being friendly.
3) One nomination per person.
4) All nominated parties will be notified and must accept their nomination.
5) Yodo1/Lightmare employees cannot be nominated, but volunteers can.
6) Nominations close on December 31st

There are plenty of great folks in this community. Regardless of all of the hardship and salt, let's take a moment to celebrate that.

I would like to nominate Tamerlane. Tamer's good-natured spirit and dedication to the game have single-handedly kept the tournament scene alive in Infinity Wars. His support helped me to run my latest special Lore-themed tournament, and his constant enthusiasm has helped to keep the game alive. He's a regular CDC participant and would run tournaments every week, including the month-long Rift-Runners' League and Weekly Rumbles.

Perhaps speaking most to Tamer's importance and awesomeness is his recent absence. He's been unable to run tourneys or keep up with the forums for the past few weeks and his absence is sorely missed.

Tamer ran an interview series for much of last year and into this one before he started running tournaments almost full time. I've worked closely with him and can say that he is truly a fantastic member of this community, one whose efforts deserve the highest praise.

I would like to nominate Hacker - guy widely known for occupying top of draft leaderboards.
Also for helping countless guys, for his steady and tenacious work for IW sake that common players were not aware.
He didn't seek credit for all of that, doing it entirely for us - players.

Alright, nominations are closed. I'm going to wait a few more days for Tamerlane to respond and then I'll post a poll for voting.

Hey everyone! Sorry i've been incommunicado recently, i hope to be back again in this coming year...

To me, 'POTY' is about who is the 'best' POTY....

i am definitely not the "(best) player of the year" currently i am a silver skrub.

i humbly accept my nomination. However; If it's alright with everyone, i would like to make a late nomination of my own...  i know this will extend the nom/ vote date; but please bear with me, i want to nominate the player who played  the most tournaments. (im working on these stats but tonight im too drunk....

This nomination process sucks in the fact that 'best' player of the year isn't acknowledged.

 i know there's only one nom allowed per player but i feel that the top of rank (averaged yearly), the top of draft (averaged yearly), and, the most wins in tournaments should  be an 'auto include' for poty considerations(ty auto correct :P ). 


i nominate the player who played in  the most tournaments.

Thanks!

I love IW!!!!!!!!

All praise Aberion!

i apologize for my lateness...

Again, if it's ok with everyone i would like to make a nomination.

over the last year i hosted about 50 tournaments. If i  deserve a nomination for that, then i would like to nominate P4lm3 who played in 17 of those tournaments.
