Stage 5: SOTY 2015 Winner Announcement!


The winner of the Screenshot of the Year 2015 is..........me, Silent1Unknown! I have not won the 1st place since the induction of SOTY contest in 2010. Thank you all for this honour! :D


Here are the top three screenshots of 2015:

Here is what the tally looked like for the SOTY contest:

Image


I was surprised so few people voted.

And here is the addition of all the tallies throughout the year (SOTM votes only):

Image

Some interesting things we learn from it:
- Hungarymate, BUGATTIMAN and Matyii got more total votes over the year than others, but none of their screenshots made the top 3. This may mean that they had consistently good screenshots or that their supporters didnt vote for them during the SOTY contest.
- BUGATTIMAN had the highest single-vote-count (10 votes in September)
- There's not much else to derive, since the participation has been a lot less than last year (128 vs 187 overall votes). Perhaps its th natural decay of MM2 interest or maybe due to a lack of motivation (such as prizes)

It has been a good 5 years now for this tradition at MM2X. Dare I say it, could this be the last year.... or last month........... or not? We'll have to find out.

Thank you all and good night! :D

CONGRATS SILENT (Captain), SAJMON AND KUNAL !!! :dance: :aplausos:
- This may mean that they had consistently good screenshots or that their supporters didnt vote for them during the SOTY contest.
They simply had reserved votes for the best ones. So, the less priority votes got funneled to hungarymate, BUGATTIMAN253MPH and matyii cuz of lack of participants. Frankly, this year was splendid and the best ones ever, kept coming. Not to mention the Halloween one - The Best. And I'm staggered ...

... why this came up :wassat: :cry2:. Then there's prizes !!! What could they be and who makes them ??

Keanu Reeves chose the Red pill and started bending spoons. I chose ZModeler 1.07b and made my own Matrix.

For 2014, I had introduced prizes (early preview or beta tests of my potential MM2 car releases), but I couldn't sustain it and I'm still owing some people. :oops:

I would like to start the contest again for 2016, but I wont be available until March. Can someone else take care of it while I'm gone?

Or can we try something else...a year long contest...10 months to model a car, 2 months to post a screenshot featuring that car and finally voting for best modeler and screenshot at the end of the year....dunno how many people would go for that...:roll:


EDIT: Sorry about earlier post, I just checked and realized that we had SOTY contest for 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2015 only. I don't know what happened to 2012 and 2013.

Apparently seems to be something wrong with the PMs, since I'm unable to send anything without receiving an error message, so I'll write it here.

Although I'm surely not the best screenshoter arround, if nobody else moves forward I don't mind to host it until you're avaliable to take the place again.

BIGzee already contacted me about starting the contests for 2016 while I'm gone. Talk to him if you want to help out. I think he'll start it in February with a 2-in-1 SOTM contest (for having missed January).

See you guys in March! :wink:
