SYSTEM WARS AWARDS HISTORY

#2 Posted by charizard1605 (61035 posts) -

Like I said, the System Wars Awards happened this year against all odds. And this was thanks to the combined efforts of many, many users. A whole lot of whom came together and decided to throw away everything else they were doing to plan, coordinate, and then undertake such a massive undertaking. These users deserve to be recognized and acknowledged for what they did. So, in no order, thanks to Stevo_the_gamer, whose banner and background designs were used for this award; to Blabadon, who came up with many of the Award titles. To charizard1605 and freedomfreak, who spent hours counting all the votes. Also, thanks to Badosh, funsohng, CaseyWegner, timmy00, Verbtex, MusicalMac, and AdobeArtist, without whose help and support this would have all fallen apart. And a very special thanks to our (only) two time System Wars King, DarkLink77, who set the entire thing in motion and ensured it would happen.

A special mention must also be made of psymon100, jonwh18, and Soulitane, all of whom rose to the occasion magnificently when some urgent help was needed to ensure that the Awards would occur as scheduled.

Most of all, thanks to everyone who voted, thanks to everyone who participated. It's only special because you make it so. So, above all else, thank you System Wars.

Just to be sure, even that's a shared award :P
#11 Posted by Blabadon (28276 posts) -

Also, seeing as I created the Resident Evil 6 Hype Thread, I shall now barrel scrape and take its award for biggest flop.

Thank you everyone.

The new SW King is also the guy who was in charge of the SW Awards, and the guy counting the votes also won big at the Awards.

I say there's some rigging going on here!:o

Bu-bu... Drama :cry:

In SW I think everyone's a winner.

#25 Posted by Cherokee_Jack (32198 posts) -
Also, does ShadowMoses even make threads? He has to be better than GreekGameManiac just by virtue of not having 90 abysmal threads per day.
