I completely agree.

 

Not to be sceptical(sarcasm), but the year you start the official clan you re-instate the awards, with a clan in the running all the members can vote for. Most clans have a criteria that members have to reach to enter, ie age, game etc. OPC can be entered by any idiot, making your potential membership enormous by default.  I think the award is meaningless if OPC win!

LiquidRunner's status as a finalist is being debated. His actual date of registration is unclear, I need to talk to him about it.

 

If this is the case, his Kudos will be removed and voting will be re-opened for 24 hours. I'll let you know.

Only if you consider what most clans have done for the site over the years. Events, tournaments and helping new members find a place in the community. Bit of a kick in the teeth when an award finally comes around tailor made to reward the efforts of those clans and the community clan, which by definition "is open to absolutely everyone who is a member of our community. Even if you're already a member of another clan, feel free to make an alternate account and join us" comes along to take the glory..... 'nough said really.

 

All we want is recognition.

Its a shame people think like this, I used to be a member of another clan, but family commitments made it difficult to join in the sceduled games. When I was invited to join in OPC on MAGMondays, there was no pressure to join in every week, the ethos was just about having fun.

 

For me, gaming is about fun, my family does, and always will come first, but its nice to join in with regulars when I get a chance.

 

Some people take it all a bit seriously.

 

Good luck to whoever wins each award... and hopefully we can meet up for a friendly sometime

Yeah thats what we are like nothing serious and your right gaming is about being fun.  As for a friendly I am sure something can be sorted out.

I can obviously only vouch personally for VLR but can be pretty confident the bolded statement applies to every clan up for the award in question. It's the defining pillar of VLR, and we've been doing in since 2008 (most clans up for nomination have been going even longer!).

 

Again, I won't speak on behalf of other people but I'd hazard a guess that there's no resentment towards OPC as a clan or towards it's members but more the fact the sites very own clan is in the running for an award. If each clan held awards for best clan within their respective clan sites or threads you'd expect nothing but a win for that clan so I'd guess many see it as unfair. It might be something to look at pending the result?

 

I've played with, against and represented the OPC on several occasions so certainly hold no grudges. I think there was also plans in the pipeline for friendlies already afoot. Having known the majority of clans here in some form I'm sure they'd have no qualms with you guys.

 

"Some people take it all a little too seriously". They did, didn't they? But it's their loss, and may have even lost them votes.

 

I liked to thank everyone for their support of VLR, regardless of the final outcome, and the best of luck to all those who have won and where nominated. A special thanks to those that contribute to this site and aren't recognised too. Search the sub-forums and there's an undiscovered community of great gamers that just don't get the exposure for their efforts. Keep up the great work everybody!

That medal thing just means it has a certain amount of kudos (think it shows up after 80 kudos?)

 


ah cool, you don't see that often, thought it was the winners symbol from last year

That symbol means that the number of Kudos for that post has exceeded 50.

 

Nothing more.

 

I think it was a mistake bringing this award back - it always causes more unrest than worth. Perhaps next year we'll switch it up an make it an award that the community team simply give, with no voting from the community.

At the end of the day, the award for best clan always goes to the clan with the most support. If your clan's events are closed and exclusive, or if you require certain specifications to be a member, you're always going to have limited support in events like this.

 

Regardless, I think it was a mistake bringing this award back - it always causes more unrest than worth. Perhaps next year we'll switch it up an make it an award that the community team simply give, with no voting from the community.

But isn't that the whole point of a clan MB, to prove that you are better than the other team? Although there may be a few niggles at each other, I would like to think it was all pretty light hearted.

 

In all fairness, it makes no difference who wins, just as it makes no difference who won a match last night. Just a touch of ego massaging ;)

I agree with MB, in all honesty for the Clan thing.

It's not really an award - it's just a contest for which clan has the most amount of members, since members of each clan will obviously vote for their own clan.

Will be much better, if it's just decided by staff, and given to the clan they believe has been most giving and helpful to the community. Just my opinion ofcourse.

I wouldnt say thats true. From our "clan" (VLR) we only generated 30 or so votes so 2/3 came from the OPF community and other clans

 

Personally I think the "rivalry" if you can call it that is good for the community. No-one has fallen out because of this and if anything its opened up the OPF community further to other new members, sites and fun nights. None of the clans running for the award are serious gaming clans in fact they are quite the opposite

Hi toigoi, welcome to the forums!


I'm afraid voting ended for the Awards on Monday 28th, Feb and therefore your vote won't be counted this time around. However, stick around the forum and you'll have a chance to vote again, when the Community Awards return, around the same time next year. Who knows, you my even be up for one yourself!
