2nd Annual Dragon Slayer Awards: Share Your Nominations Now!

The 2nd Annual Dragon Slayer Awards - Can Goblins beat Penny Arcade...again?

by 10 months ago

Update (July 12, 2013):
Thanks for your nominations! Voting is now open for the 2013 Dragon Slayer Awards.

Vote now

 

At GameSkinny, we pride ourselves on having real content from real gamers. In keeping with this we are proud to announce the 2nd Annual Dragon Slayer Awards, brought to you by our friends at Guild Launch... And you.

That's right: you. Without your opinion, no one is getting any awards.

We're totally serious. 

What are the Dragon Slayer Awards?

This ain't your "normal" 'only famous people and big name companies/games win' awards show. The Dragon Slayer Awards are 100% user nominated and user voted. They focus on community managers, community builders and, most importantly, the community members (see, there's you again) of gaming.

How does it work?

Below are the 11 award categories, all are open and ready for nominations. Make your nomination(s) in the comments section below by the end of June. Once we have compiled all the nominations the real fun begins - voting. Voting runs from early July, 2013 through September 2nd, 2013. 

Why should you nominate (and then vote)? 

Because you care - ok maybe you don't, but gosh darn it we need you to. The underdog needs you to. The game that had crazy hype and totally fell on its face needs you to. The unsung hero who is always there for his/her community but never gets recognized needs you to.  

So, without further ado, here are the categories: 

2013 Dragon Slayer Awards Categories

  • Notable Gaming Comic
  • Notable Machinima or Video Series
  • Hype Train Award
  • Notable Gaming Personality
  • Community Manager of the Year
  • Most Dramatic Change
  • Top Community Management Team
  • Most Passionate Fan Base
  • Notable Kickstarter of The Year
  • Best Gaming Team, Guild or Clan
  • Best Gaming Innovation

Did we convince you? Good; leave a comment with your nominations and keep an eye out for more details and voting links.  

The unsung hero is counting on you.

    Best Gaming Team, Guild or Clan - Team Solo Mid

    They are one of the best League of Legends teams in North America. Would be very cool to recognize them and what they've done for eSports.

    Hype Train Award: Most definitely Elder Scrolls Online, but I guess if you didn't limit that to games and more gaming in general you could say the epic Xbox and PS fight for next gen consoles. With the DRM and used game problems.

    Most Notable Kickstarter: Star Citizen or Oculus Rift

    Most Passionate Fan Base... Eve online... or Elder Scrolls Fans... League of Legends... Dota2 that's a tough one.

    For most passionate fan base, I'm going to say Lord of the Rings Online. You get everyday players, and not only that, but ones who are willing to help each other out! Whether it's by giving advice, or armor/armaments, you can always find what you need.

    Most Passionate Fanbase: DEFINITELY Lord of the Rings Online. Everyone who plays loves the game, and all of us love the suspense of the updates. SO MUCH HYPE!

    Notable Gaming Personality: I'm going to say Nerd3, his videos are brilliant, he's funny, and his gameplay videos are awesome!

    Best Gaming Guild, Team or Clan: Probably Minecraft Middle Earth. Very passionate! http://www.mcmiddleearth.com

    Most Passionate Fan Base = LOTRO - because it still is, more than others!

    Best Gaming Innovation = LOTRO - because they implement all the great functions from other MMOs which makes LOTRO a thrill to play. Forever innovative.

    Definitely Lord of the Rings Online. The fan base itself are awesome enough. Rarely do you find a player that won't help you out or tell you about the game if they know it. They also have massive amounts of response to the devs in every form. No other game like it.

    For the most passionate fan base, I say Lord of the Rings Online as well. It's a great game with great players. I've been playing for over a year now, and I can easily say the community of players is probably the best I have ever seen in an MMORPG.

    Most Passionate Fan Base, would have to be Lord of the Rings online. If you ever need help, there's always someone online willing to give a hand. Not to mention the overall friendly attitude of the players
