During the last end of age voting I included a tentative proposal to gauge interest in making a few changes to the voted upon End of Age Awards. It was universally agreed that there should be some changes. While all of the following items that were listed at the time recieved a fair amount of interest I would like to have some further discussion to clarify some, such as clan awards, and allow others to suggest additional items. It would also be beneficial to note if there is interest in adding all items that are agreed to or only the top five or so new items to limit the end of age ballot.
So please discuss and nominate ideas to be included on a more formalized vote next week. (Where I will remember to include a no option for each item this time XD)
Items listed in original proposal with adjustments to include additional suggestions from that time:
Since the change to discord, "best moment in Tel" has become a bit monumental due to text quantity. I propose we remove this item.
Rookie of the Year. Lets recognize the newcomer(s) who really shine
Clan awards such as most agressive/ambitious, most prosperous, most allied, most contentious, most reclusive, clan of mediation...
Best City Description
Best Tournament (once this mechanic is fixed perhaps?)
I will not be here for this but my recommendation for the coming end of age award adjustments based on a mix of this vote and tel discussions is as follows (with recommended descriptions as found on other end of age awards for nominations):
- Remove the best moment in tel. (Not because there are none but hopefully because there are too many) - Rookie(s) of the year ... entering the pattern for their first age, this person/these people must surely be ta'veren with the impact they had. (make sure you nominate your clansmen who are new because we don't always know who they are) - Best City Description ... those italicized words that caught your eye as you passed through the land
Clan Awards: - Most Aggressive ... "Many cities come to those who clan battle" - Most Prosperous... "Gold makes the Wheel go round and all the upgrades built" - Clan of Meddling... "Of course we could stay out of it. But we won't"
I also recommend that the process of first taking nominations and then holding a vote off of those nominations be retained.
