    I've implemented a new awards feature onto the forum now.

    For the moment there are only two, but look towards more appearing in the future.

    A little extra bling and recognition for some users posts.

    Let me know what you think, if you don't know what I'm on about then you will have to keep your eyes peeled until you spot them!

    Really liked it ! But then I did get a CC win award ! :D

    I love the OCC awards... we could do something similar. Especially the Dead Dwarf award... please ! Please !

    For GB... the League Admin badge ? My suggestion below:

    I'm not familiar with them, I'm open to suggestions, some of which I may implement.

    Very nicely done, still think we should keep awards to a minimum:powdodge:

    You get awards for accomplishing various things... usually hard like killing a dwarf, mummy or Tomb Guardian. The awards are cartoonish and fun mostly. Some of the awards are related to correctly guessing game results more than others like the "bookieman" award or suffering/giving 7 casualties in a game. Or the infamous boot award... for good fouling.

    In Crunch Cup makes sense to have an award for worse and best luck in the Season. Since we have the fabulous Mathemagicks.

    Winners of the Crunched Cup might deserve a L shaped or spoon shaped award... :p

    I do agree we should keep them to a minimum... but more than just 1-2

    Well I would not mind a golden spoon award, as the Crunched Cup is a tournament exclusive to our site and only the active coaches take part:powdodge:

    But all the special awards that the OCC have is not something I find we should copy, just my personal opinion, nothing scientific:p

    Surely not copy... agree... but some inspiration from them.

    Courier guys deserve some recognition too... give 'em a badge.

    Nah. We don't want to flood the forums with Cyanide badges, IMO.

    I won't be adding loads of awards for Cyanide achievements (I believe FUMBBL has 100s of such awards as well). There is only so much space to display graphical badges and I don't want things being overly cluttered.

    Adding lots of easily attained awards won't make those who've be given something stand out either! No prestige in something easily gained. :pow:

    Yup, same here. Awards only for:

    Winning the Crunch Cup
    Runner up in the Crunch Cup
    Winning the Crunched Cup (Maybe a trophy that looks like it's made of shite)
    Winning a game in either competition with an all Snotling team

    I'm also in agreement that its a good idea to have the awards. Just not too many please or it will start to get cluttered.

    Also a big thankyou to Coach for fully embracing the Crunch Cup on the bbtactics forum. :)

    What's so hard about killing a dwarf? One of my opponents managed it 3 times at the weekend.:rolleyes:
    While I agree it's a good thing, it's hardly difficult.

    I could see either the "Crunch Cup Runner Up Trophy" - since you got first place, only in the second playoff :p

    Other viable options are: Upside-down Crunch Cup Runner Up Trophy, and a Golden Spoon.

    My humble suggestion:

    - Some sort of badge for the hard working courier staff. They deserve recognition. A scroll and pen design ?
    - Golden Spoon for Crunched Cup
    - Badge for League Moderator... aka GB. Some bossy figure.

    - Its nice to have a badge for something "negative"... but in a funny way. So I think a Badge for overall unluckiest team in a CC season is something to think about. This also gives mathemagicks even more relevance. A dice with a 1 on top... or a horseshoe in red. Something regarding lack of luck.

    - Possibly one for best theme and team name too. Can be the same award. I think this is something which makes CC stand out. The creativity and care in giving themes to teams... a lamp bulb design ?

    I don't think having these will clutter profiles or the forum. All are deserving awards that are rare... most only once a season to the chosen few.

    especially considering some of them could be very small awards, OR awards that are only good for one season?

    say....best team name/theme could be awarded at the end of a Crunch Cup, and the award held until the end of the next Crunch Cup, at which point it would be removed from the original player and given to the new winner?

    Aint that something? It surprised me when I logged on to see shiney badges.

    For me its mods, courier staff, CC finalists and crunched finalists. Probably give sponsors (like fastshark) a badge.
