    @ the best mafia series award:
    My BTD4 mafia is planned to be a five game series. I just need people to sign up for the first one...

    A bird in need is a friend indeed,
    So pull the eyes over the wool!

    Well, it depends. If it's a biyearly thing, then I'd prefer six months later, i.e. February. If it's yearly, then how about August again xD

    Would August have to be the first awards. I think maybe September or October is better suiting. But of course it's up to the Mods in charge. But of course I'd be glad to help here however I can.

    I'll edit back in a list that I think would be good for the awards.

    I cannot wait for graduation to to come so I can jump into this and get it going...

    I think August is our best bet. An end of summer awards, if you will.

    I agree that August would be ideal since the number of users usually rises in the summer so we'll have more people playing mafia games and therefore, more people paying attention to the awards and participating, voting. Plus, later, most users are usually back to school, therefore might have less time to dedicate to it, and be involved. So yeah, I'd support awards in the summer rather than later.

    Also, are the awards gonna be restricted to mafia games only. Since the War Room is encouraging non-mafia games, and other strategy, reflexion or talent based games, I'm suggesting to possibly include a Best Non-Mafia game award, for War Room games who aren't technically mafia.

    We haven't talked it over (that's what this thread is for :P). I'm leaning toward a seperate category for non-mafia games, seeing as every award discussed thus far is unique to mafia games.

    Yeah, that's what I was proposing, just a category, cause I've noticed that the non-mafia games often attract both War Room regulars and also users who don't play mafia games, so I thought it'd be a good way to include that group in the awards.

    It's a good idea and we'll most likely have it in the final version.

    Well, I've kinda waited to hear everyone's idea before pronouncing me on the categories and such to see which ones I felt would work, and the number of awards, etc.

    First off, I'll echo Mintaka's suggestions that hosts should get awards too, as they can often make or break a mafia game with the roles they create, the story they weave and the way they engage the players.

    Second, a lot of the ideas that were suggested felt, to me, good ideas, but ultimately too precise. For exemple, "Best at spotting mafia", "Best at surviving as town" or "Best insert town role", all already fall as determining factors for a "Best Town Performance" award. Same for "Best role" and "Most innovative game mechanics", it all falls into a "Most Creative Host" award. I feel that the categories should be broader to include the biggest amount of people, and that there shouldn't be too many categories.

    Third, I'll echo hurristat's comment that we shouldn't have, at least for this award, "Best Newcomer" and "Best Mafia series" awards. It's too soon for the former, and too restricted for the latter.

    So... here are the categories I'd see for the awards.

    Player Tier

    - Best Player

    - Best Mafia Performance
    - Best Town Performance
    - Best Independant Performance
    - Most Sportsmanlike Conduct
    - Most Entertaining Player
    - Most Strategic Player
    - Best Debator

    Host Tier

    - Best Host

    - Most Creative Host
    - Most Entertaining Host
    - Fair Hosting Award

    Game Tier

    - Best mafia game
    - Best non-mafia game
    A Note on the Best Player and Best Host award. I don't think they require a second voting period, as is the case in the WW awards, and could either be voted at the same time as the other categories or could be awarded to the player who collected the highest amount of combined votes in all the categories of the tier.

    So that's my opinion on the whole thing. Hope that helps! : )

    I do not plan on having a second voting period.

    I think that, there should be a series award. There are more and more coming so it would make sense. I would think it would be a host award. But overall, great list Hellion.

    I agree it should just be one voting period.

    I will agree to a series award, since they seem to be becoming popular. Also Hellion, I approve that list.

    Most Outspoken? It could work for the players list, they're the ones always talking and throwing out ideas, no matter how stupid or illogical they are.
