It turns out the informal polling (with joke options) was less rigged than the official polling.

Idea for next year.  Allow the community to nominate, but only allow alliance leaders to vote.

There was only 1000 votes this year which doesn't suggest to me a large number of players in that area of the game participating.

Probably voting based on personality.

If that's the case, then why didn't kosmokenny win it?  He's quite possibly the worst based on personality.

@Yoda Something like your idea you suggested in that nomination thread really needs to be implemented. The awards right now are so clearly rigged its hasn't got a thread of credibility left. I think any reasonable person can agree that some of these outcomes are clearly bullshit and are just IQ or others bloc voting it to win. Clearly the views of Leo, Roq, Bour, Nizam or Pre hold far more weight than Roqbot#2523, or some Pleb from a micro alliance.

I would like to see a more diverse group of winners instead of one bloc/sphere winning most of the better awards. I tried messaging a few alliance leaders to see if they want to work on that but one told me he is busy with his job and some didn't reply. If people want to see a change, they should step up and get involved

Not surprised at all. all favorable categories went to one side in the current world conflict, all derogatory categories went to the other. Gee, I wonder if ... maybe.... there's something behind this? like... maybe the leadership of the biggest alliances all telling their people to vote in a specific manner and the sheer numbers of alliances too big to ever fail at anything due to their sheer size dictating the "popularity contest"? That's all this is is a popularity contest.. the categories are jokes. "Best military BK? I guess that's why GOB was asked to start losing wars on purpose because no one could beat their military?

 

Just sayin is all :)

Point is, though, very little is gained from not doing polls on forums (bigger voting base, but same rigging), and I don't think anyone was surprised by the poll results. So why use a separate system for this poll?

The only awards that matter are the TKR awards and the best award went to the right personLNKvMbw.png

I wonder if BK would have won so many awards if you weren't allowed to vote for your own alliance...

Edit: They still would have, because NPO would vote for BK and BK would vote for NPO.
