TSC Awards 2007
« on: December 26, 2007, 10:45:43 PM »
On December 31, I'm going to be hosting a TSC Awards 2007 event. Basically, I will be giving out awards for various things that have occured this year.

These awards need your input! Nominate your choices in this topic. Later on, I will add a user poll so everyone can vote for their favorite video. I'm not sure how we'll select the top video yet (whether it'll be based on the forum poll only or via admin consensus, etc), but I'll post how we'll decide once we figure out a method.

Awards for nomination:
- 2D Player of the Year
- 3D Player of the Year
- Overall Player of the Year
- Rookie of the Year
- Comeback of the Year
- Fadeout of the Year (i.e. a player who was formerly at a very high ranking but fell dramatically throughout the year [e.g. lost sitewide points, lost championships, etc.])
- Best Video of the Year

PS: This is a serious topic. Don't make stupid nominations. That means you, genus. Also, you can't nominate yourself. And I don't care if you made an awards topic before - I actually implemented awards.

(Also note that while you can't nominate yourself, if you do end up getting nominated and appear in the final polls, you *can* vote for yourself.)

UPDATE, 2007/12/31 08:00 AM: We don't have the award graphics ready yet, and there aren't enough nominations, so we'll have to postpone the awards event until sometime in January. :(

Well you may have started a flavorless awards topic without any joke awards, but we all know which is the real awards topic.

Still, I think I will participate in the voting for this BASTARDIZATION.

2D Player of the Year: L-Block blueblazer8
3D Player of the Year:  L-Block blueblazer8
Overall Player of the Year:  L-Block blueblazer8
Rookie of the Year:  Bidoof SS94
Comeback of the Year:  L-Block blueblazer8
Fadeout of the Year: Cloud Strife yse (zing!)
Best Video of the Year: That 11 box Labyrinth 3 video I submitted for Mike's first tourney. Classic vid. Even though the target was 12.


I HOPE YOU DO

2D: Judgement. He came out of nowhere. (Mostly in advance but his tournament showing was pro too.)
3D: yoshifan. 15 SA2B records currently just this year, plus he just pwns at that in general.
Overall: Judgement. See 2D.
Rookie: DsS. No real reason.
Comeback: This is a tough one. Thorn maybe?
Fadeout: RPG. He may still be 4th but he could do so much more than he has of late.
Video: I haven't looked at too many lately but I'll just say Quartz's Scrap Brain 3. Because carretero's discovery was epic.
<Tails> also "GET BLUE SPHERES" on a black-and-white TV remains the best special stage of all time

<Achlys> wat ave you done!

2D: K-Dero. This guy is going nuts at S3.
3D: blazest, for just going insane on SA2.
Overall: Thorn. Improved by a full 100 siteside or so in the past year, even though he'd already submitted to most charts. Da1 could merely make new stats. Not to mention that he sucks at 2D. >_>
Rookie: DsS. He's accomplished a lot of shit.
Comeback of the Year: blazest. He posted his CC1 a while back, and boom.
Fadeout of the Year: Aitamen (although you could argue it doesn't count).
Video of the Year: either one of the SA2GT vids or SM's new CW1.

Spinny the reason for your fadeout nomination is likely that RPG has embraced his inner soul of a true King of Laziness. >____>

what about people who won some of these awards last year? will they still get something?I am 100% confident I remember Eredani won player of the year, yoshifan won 3D player of the year, stanski won 2D player of the year, and quartz won rookie of the year, just incase you want to credit them for the past.

and make a wtfyoudotheimpossible award just for SM for his crazy eternal engine strategy which is impossible for us earth-beings to do :P

videos in mind, what determines which one is the best? quality? frame rate? skill shown? major glitches? overall coolness?

other than that.. i can't think of any new nominations.

I hope you're being sarcastic about the frame rate thing :(

As for award votes-

2D Player of the Year - This is quite an open category. stanski 0-scored Sonic 2 in February, eredani continues to prove he's a master 2D time attacker from Sonic 3 & Knuckles to Triple Trouble to Advance, smizzla obtains both Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles at once in December, SDM has Sonic 3 rings just about 0 scored, Judgement and douglas continue to battle over Advance 2, and with taking the score/rings divisons in Sonic Advance, Zeupar booted Nintendan's Advance reign into the past. Anyone else I didn't mention, while they may be good, they didn't quite do anything "new," persay. My vote lies to an intense tournament of coin-flips, and it just so happens that smizzla came out on top.

3D Player of the Year - Jawzun is a clear candidate candidate, but so is Shadow Jacky. Both have obtained a championship this year, and yoshifan also took Sonic Adventure 2 times this year. Stefan also stole SSR times from me >:O But I think out of these choices, Shadow Jacky has performed the most admirably in the 3D realm, with his prowess in Sonic Adventure 2 and Heroes (and Shadow and SSR).

Overall Player of the Year - Lets see... Who has done the most exceptional job at cross-platform Sonic gaming? Thorn and mike are the obvious candidates. Da1's swimming about in all of his crappy platinums (:P), and SJ and yoshifan have continued to compete on various fronts affecting a multitude of games. Out of these choices though, I have to give my vote to yoshifan because he's proven throughout the entire year that he is a swiss army knife for Sonic games, in that he has shown time and time again can do anything and get anywhere, and has the strategies and skill to prove it.

Rookie of the Year - Da1's an obvious candidate, but he's merely the best at the worst. :P However, he basically has no competition for this category at all seeing as he's done a good job at inventing ways to keep his platinums. sdj6707's done a good job (0:24 GH1!) but he hasn't innovated on the scale that Da1's done. Therefore, my vote goes to Da1AndOnlySonic.

Comeback of the Year: Well, FoxLuc submitted recently... That's all the comebacks I can think of. >_> <_< I'm not sure how blazest counts as a comeback if the registration was in September 2007 of this year, unless this person was someone else of course. Can someone clarify more clearly? Edit: Now that it makes more sense, I vote blazest seeing as he's mauled a good portion of SA2.

Fallout of the Year: Well lets see. There's the wtfAitamen thing... I wouldn't nominate RPG because he has actually competed this year on a few fronts (Sonic 06, SRA, half of the tourney being examples). It seems as if Nintendan hasn't been around in ages, Crowbar hasn't submitted a single stat for SRA yet (not even his PK1 stat on the official charts)... F-Man also hasn't competed in ages either. He still has a shot at taking Sonic Adventure back if he just submits stats for single lap races, but he hasn't done that yet... But it's not like he or Crowbar actually left. Out of the two that are left out of the four I can think of, I would say Aitamen was more surprising, but if banned users don't count, I'd vote Nintendan.

Video of the Year: Hard to say, really. Tons of fun tricks were born this year in all kinds of games, like 0:11 Scrap Brain 3 and SadisticMystic's Eternal Engine 1 video is pretty lol as well. Those videos don't really keep the person at the edge of their seat though, so it's hard to say... I will have to do more than 10 minutes of research for this.

Skylights: Blazest was blaze_japanese, who long ago submitted a Cannon's Core video (1:32, was it?). Before that, he belonged to a japanese community for SA2. He recently now just came back to tsc and pretty much owned the crap out of sa2.

Comeback Award - I'd nominate myself for Riders but I'm not sure I can do that (this was in January). Plus, I'm sure there's a bigger comeback that happened this year on a 2D Game that didn't affect me anyhow.

If not, than the obvious DarkSpines rings a bell for snagging championships.

3D Player of the Year - SJ, no contest.

Rookie of the Year - Again, Darkspines is beyond obvious.

Fadeout - I'd say RPG but I can't think of anyone else who should get it anyway.

I still think the awards are empty without the joke awards. For example, we could have these categories.

1. Fanboy of the Year Award: For TSC's most idiotic fanboy.
2. Golden Spam Can Award: For TSC's worst spammer.
3. Most likely to commit homicide: For TSC's greatest psychopath.
4. Most likely to start World War 3. For the most manipulative/charasmatic member.
5. Funniest thread: Self explanitory.
6. Some award for the most sarcastic member.

Of course these would have to have some sort of joke icon as a prize or in the case of the fanboy award, a mod created title change on the user's post name description.

Unstickied. I never got around to doing this. :(

Maybe I'll do a combination 2007/2008 awards next year.

Also, I'm changing the necromancy data to 30 days, so the warning will appear if a topic is 30 days old. (Right now, it's set to 60.)
