NML Hall of Fame

TroublemakerTroublemaker Member Posts: 1,201
So I've decided to make something for the community and with the help of my friend @Pic we are proudly announcing the “NML Hall of Fame”!

The idea is of course to celebrate players that are somehow inspiring to others and have made longtime contributions to the game, be it as talented strategist, a social phenomenon or something in between.

For this we will form a committee consisting of:

Top 20 Global players

+
Top 10 guild leaders or representatives
= 30 members

Basic procedure will be: each member of those 30 that form the committee will name three players to be eligible for "NML Hall of Fame". We will then sort out all picked names from those 90 entries and see who gets more mentions to form our initial list of ten players that will be the first of the “NML Hall of Fame”. Please take notice that this works similarly to FIFA’s Golden Ball award.

The committee will be set based on Player and Guild Global Leaderboards right after the weekly Challenge that ends on Aug 27th. The list will be posted here and representatives will be tagged and/or PMed. Results will be announced shortly after we gather all votes from the committee members. Guild leaders that are also top 20 players won’t be counted twice, so this committee membership will pass to the next top player. Players that don’t respond or don’t want to participate pass their opportunity to the next top player, in the same procedure as above. 

We won’t reveal committee picks, but we are not asking for anyone to hide their picks, so players are allowed to share if they want.



I hope this sounds a good idea to you as it sounds to us. We are counting on everyone to engage the community on this, so please share within your guild families and chat apps!

Thanks in advance.

Cheers and good vibes!

UPDATE 1

We will ask each committee member to select 5 names instead of the previous 3. This decision was made on player feedback.

We are also adding that one can't vote for himself/herself.

This will make the final countdown 150 votes instead of 90, thus increasing the variety and reflecting in more solid final numbers.



UPDATE 2



We will not reveal the votes for everyone, but Kaz or someone from NG will validate them.

The committee will have access to the votes too if needed.



UPDATE 3



“NML Hall of Fame” nominees will receive an unique forum badge and a certificate from NG!

    Cool!

    Does making Magic Mike videos in Line app NML community chat counts as an entry? 😆

    There are no rules for what committee will pick @bladgier

    But I guess a vodka showered cigar smoked character gamble would definitely impact the choices!

    For "interview" you are talking of those audio/video things we were used with @Pain_Walker ??

    No. It will be text only, with the same questions for every player. It will be a lot shorter.

    This is our event and these are the rules we set for it. Simple as that, no one is being forced to participate, and if a player does not want to be part of the committee to vote, it will be passed on to the next until we get 30 members.

    Top 20 Global + Top 10 Guild leaders is a interpretation of excellence, experience and understanding of the game and also the community, so these players will probably make reasonable picks.

    Of course it does. But only if one of the 30 committee members think you deserve their vote! 😂

    @capibara it's totally fine to disagree with the rules and I absolutely understand your points.

    However, to make this happen, we needed something to start and this seemed good enough for us. A simple straight rule like this works better on average than random picks made by my personal preference, for example. We need a clear goal and how-to.

    So please try to see the event from outside too, from many perspectives, not just personal point of view. It's not an easy thing to do.

    Most top 20 Global are here since the start and have been through a lot in the game's history. All players today watch videos on YouTube, visit the forum and participate on community chat apps. Or at least check on all this. The guild votes are even more democratic, since many guilds have shared leaderships and will have their picks discussed internally before any final vote.

    Also please keep note > "The committee will be set based on Player and Guild Global Leaderboards right after the weekly Challenge that ends on Aug 27th".

    Trust! This will be good.

    Cheers and good vibes!

    Wow. This should be fun. I'm working @Troublemaker and @Pic. Let's just give it a shot, have some fun and see what happens!!

    @TransmuteJun I feel the same way. Not sure why the world doesn't see it.
