Topic: Tournament of Simulations 2013

Blog post

We've submitted five sims so far - if you want to submit your own let me, ksabers or Raven know.

Re: Tournament of Simulations 2013

What sims have already been submitted? I see the deadline is tomorrow. sad

For the sims I'm SL/GM for, I'd want to submit Radioactive, Zombies, Greenleaf, and Odyssey.

For those I'm simply in, I'd want to submit Umbra, Elemental, Matrix, and D'ni. And Forgotten Realms. Sheesh, so many good ones!

Is there a limit on what we can submit?

Re: Tournament of Simulations 2013

We've won four awards.

Phoenix Roleplaying has won four awards at the prestigious Tournament of Simulations, the results of which were announced today, its second year of success in the prestigious contest, which was last year called the Simulations Cup.

The first victory went to The Dark Cometh and CANIS UK, which collectively won the prize for Best Adventure/Fantasy Sim; this was not awarded last year.

Another new award was in fact tied - Best Dr. Who Sim was collectively shared between AJJE Games' Doctor Who sim and our own The Triple First.

For the second year in a row, Phoenix won Best Firefly Sim; this year's winner was The Elemental with previous winner Kvant not entered by its SL this year by personal choice.

Finally, Fighter Ops, which won the Excellence in Creativity award last year (Excellence awards were not given out this time) won its second award for Best Military Sim.

There was however disappointment in Best Star Wars Sim: this award, won last year by The West Star, went to Star Wars: Shadow Squadron at Federation Sim Fleet.

Co-chair Chas Hammer said, "It was a pleasure to review Phoenix Roleplaying for this year's ToS.  You offer a diversity of genres that I do not believe is matched anywhere else, and the quality of your games is reflected in those who won in this years ToS".

A warm congratulations to all the winning sims and players, Phoenix or otherwise.

That's so cool, perhaps especially the Co-chair's comments as they reflect well on the whole site.

Speaking as the worst person ever at mercy and forgiveness, I'm mainly glad AJJE only won one and Phoenix won four, and that the one they did win we tied on.

But personal bitterness aside, it's really cool that with so many simming sites assessed, we consistently come out with a lion's share. Federation Sim Fleet were the only other site to win as many awards as us, everyone else walked away with one or two or none.

Re: Tournament of Simulations 2013

While I'm disappointed none of the sims I SL or GM for were winners, I am very happy that we had four awards for other sims (and proud that three of the four are sims I play in).

Congrats to the winners and every one of our members should give themselves a bit of a pat on the back for the quality of RP this site has. Now let's raise the bar even HIGHER! smile

I'm not sure if it's changed much, but I created that AJJE sim.
