The Categories and Awards:

Awards Given to Probably Deserving Individuals

  • Raider of the Year - The most villainous, the exemplar of evil, the paragon of raiding in the last year.
  • Defender of the Year - The doer of good, the leader of righteousness, the stalwart defender of the last year.
  • Independent of the Year - For that wishy-washy person who nonetheless was very competent this last year.
  • Up and Coming Raider - That new person to the art of raiding who shows the most promise. Nominations may be made of those new to raiding in a longer time-frame than the last year, within reason.
  • Up and Coming Defender - The best recruit of the side of righteousness who shows the greatest promise. Nomination requirements are the same as above.
  • Politician of the Year - Ah, the infamous profession. This award is for those who have power & influence by position, and have used it the best.
  • Most Influential Gameplayer - The equal and opposite of the above, this award is for those who don't have powerful positions, but somehow end up influencing and/or in the room where it happens anyways.
  • The Armchair Award - The oft-maligned award, this goes to the individual whose activity level is most inverse to how much they talk about what is going on.
  • Gameplayer of the Year - The crown jewel in any awards cabinet, this award is for that person who is the best Gameplayer around (or at least in the last year).

Individual Awards Disguised as Being for Groups of People

  • Raider Military of the Year - Given to the military that has best demonstrated the crushing of natives for the past year.
  • Defender Military of the Year - That Military that did the most to protect the mostly-innocent masses from raiders this year.
  • Independent/Unaligned/Other Military of the Year - An award for the undecided militaries among us that play on both sides.
  • UCR Region of the Year - The user-created region that did exceptionally well this year.
  • GCR Region of the Year - Supposedly an award for the game-created region that did the best this year, we all know that's code for most popular.
  • Best New Region - That new region everyone is talking about, and looks to be doing the best.

Awards Somehow Given to Non-Physical Stuff

  • Invasion of the Year: Even the most epic of invasions deserves more accolades.
  • Defense of the Year: The defense that most showed what defenders can do.
  • Political Event of the Year: - Treaties, wars, and political intrigue oh my! This one is for the big things happening in Gameplay politics.
  • Failure of the Year (IC only): - Missed triggers, opsec leaks, and more! This is the IC event (OOC stuff is out) that gets the dubious distinction of being dubbed the greatest failure of the year.
  • Event of the Year: - The biggest thing in Gameplay to happen in the last year.

The Silly Awards and Ones that Don't Fit Elsewhere

  • News Operation of the Year: - Regular journalism, yellow journalism, and tweets. This goes to the operation deemed the best at putting out the news we all sometimes care about.
  • News Article of the Year: - That which is deemed to be the biggest or best article of the year, by the whims of the mob.
  • Best Thread/Essay/Long-form Dispatch: - The thread or similarly long thing deemed to arbitrarily be the best.
  • Quote/Short-form Dispatch of the Year: - That witty/funny/weird comment we all like.
  • Most Popular Award: - The silliest and most arbitrary of awards, this award is for whoever we all evidently like the most.

Format is Nominee, Runner-Up

Raider of the Year: Mira, Jo. They're the two faces of raiding currently. We all know one of them is gonna win this.
Defender of the Year: GK, Quebec. GK has been crushing it, climbing up to First Warden from Chamberlain, and she's also like. Crazy fast. Very jealous. Quebec, however, is an active conscription whip for the LDF as well as its head; the LDF really became a thing in Libcord in March 2021, and recently hit 20 updaters across an operation. That's crazy.
Independent of the Year: Frenchy, Andy. Frenchy's been holding Lily together for 2021. Definitely Indie of the year. Andy, however, has also been doing good work with THA.
Up and Coming Raider: Wasc, Ray. Wasc has a lot of raiding potential. Ray is a newcomer to the raiding scene, but other than Wasc I don't think any other new raider has made as big of an impression on me.
Up and Coming Defender: Luca, Moon + Salem + Makasta. Luca is uncontestably the most deserving of this award. They're fast, they're present, they're useful as always, and they're an active part of every modern liberation. The next 3 are all solid updaters who began defending this year. Moon has contributed to the defender cause in the SC, Salem has brought his R/D knowledge on board and reformed the RRA Special Brigade, and Makasta is one of the best spotters in the game.
Politician of the Year: Tim or Cormac. I don't have much to say.
Most Influential Gameplayer: Tim, hate to say it but Vara >_>. Both have lots of influence in their own spheres, particularly Tim with getting updaters and Vara with stomping SC proposals.
The Armchair Award: Glen or EW
Gameplayer of the Year: Haven't decided.

Raider Military of the Year: LWU, ERN
Defender Military of the Year: TGW, SPSF
Independent/Unaligned/Other Military of the Year: Tossup between THA and Lily
UCR Region of the Year: The League, Thaecia
GCR Region of the Year: TWP, TRR
Best New Region: The League + Chaylia + Atlanticana

Invasion of the Year: Genua, Trovons
Defense of the Year: China, TNO Last Days of Europe (won twice)
Political Event of the Year: PfS
Failure of the Year (IC only): Entropy, Stargate thorn
Event of the Year: idk

News Operation of the Year: idk
News Article of the Year: idk
Best Thread/Essay/Long-form Dispatch: idk
Quote/Short-form Dispatch of the Year: i’ll get some later
Most Popular Award: Moon, Salem

Raider of the Year: Jo, Mira - They carried raiding this year.
Defender of the Year: Tim, Luca, Quebecshire, Moon, Grea K., HumanSanity - In some way or another, did a lot for the Defender cause this year.
Independent of the Year: Andy, Frenchy - Andy's the most prominent indie guy rn, Frenchy 'cuz Lily.
Up and Coming Raider: Mira - Mira's work in TBH is making changes for the region in terms of reviving it and ergo raiding, even if there are some FA blunders along the way.
Up and Coming Defender: Luca, Quebec, Makasta, Sulenia, Moon - All new Defenders this year kicking ass.
Politician of the Year: Dilber, Xoriet - Dilber has improved and excellently leveraged TWP's FA network, Xoriet is still highly influential as always.
Most Influential Gameplayer: Tim, Quebecshire - While these two could be politician of the year, they could be just as influential if they agendaposted and roasted people as run-of-the-mill soldiers. They're just that good at being influential :p
The Armchair Award: None
Gameplayer of the Year: Vara - Vara's ability to cause agitation over small topics and steadfast self-confidence in his views is peak GP. (Still <3 ya tho Vara)

Raider Military of the Year: The Lone Wolves, The Black Hawks - They're the only raiders doing anything.
Defender Military of the Year: TGW, TL, TSPSF, TITO - Defender regions with the supreme manpower.
Independent/Unaligned/Other Military of the Year: Thaeimperial Army - Thaecia doing awesome
UCR Region of the Year: Thaecia, The League, TGW, Refugia, UDS - The growth of the first regions, despite their respective hardships last year, is really stunning. Refugia's laid back gov. culture is amazing. UDS cause UDS awesome.
GCR Region of the Year: TEP, TWP, TSP - TEP because TEP awesome, TWP cause its been killing it this year, TSP for constantly having an FA presence and cool people.
Best New Region: N/A

Invasion of the Year: GENUA - Destroying fascism with record numbers always good
Defense of the Year: Trovons - Trovons was a massive effort to save an actively developing region , even if it was later overshadowed by other ops in terms of numbers. Also notable because a native was banned during the op, which shows not liberating Trovons could've had real consequences.
Political Event of the Year: The Force fiasco - Can't think of anything else, this was pretty wild.
Failure of the Year (IC only): N/A
Event of the Year: Declarations - Can't think of anything and declarations were very notable otherwise.

News Operation of the Year: The Rejected Times, The Western Post - TRT is great to read and they have great content. It's clear a shitton of work is put into each issue of TWPost to make it one of the most high-quality newspapers around this year. Always nice to see something from these two newspapers.
News Article of the Year: The One on commendations by Nakari (viewtopic.php?p=39243974#p39243974) - Very interesting data owo
Best Thread/Essay/Long-form Dispatch: N/A
Quote/Short-form Dispatch of the Year: N/A
Most Popular Award: Vara, Quebecshire, Jo - Love or hate Vara & Quebec, they tend to be liked by a lot of people on all sides of the aisle. Jo's been a respected & steady face in GP, to the point where anyone in GP at least knows him in passing.

sorry for editing this so many times ;~;

I might do some more nominations later (or might not, as it seems like most of what I would do is already covered). But anyway,

Up and Coming Defender: New Makasta

Since entering defending, he has only ever missed major update when absolutely having to for IRL reasons. Since his first update in Libcord on 7 March 2021, he has updated in Libcord alone (as in not counting LDF stuff outside of Libcord) a staggering 335 times. In recent months, he has taken an active role in command-adjacent roles such as FPM, liberator recruitment, and more.

Obviously I'm biased but I wanted this one out there with reasoning.

Seconded. May have more nominations later, but this will do for now.
Warden of The Order of the Grey Wardens since February 10th, 2021.
Member of the South Pacific Special Forces since February 7th, 2022.
I allegedly did well in these tournaments:
1st: Baptism of Fire 75, World Junior Hockey Championship 17
2nd: World Cup of Masters 4, Elephant Chess Cups 2 and 3
3rd: Elephant Chess Cup 1
4th:
Quarterfinalist: Jenna Raven Cup 1, Quidditch World Cup 11, 5th International Cup of 7ball, International Baseball Slam 15, Independent Associations Championship 14

Also apparently the first user in like a decade and a half to win the Baptism of Fire with two different nations (75 and 78), so that's cool ig
...I'll always be your friend!
