Report article RSS Feed Moddb is turning into a joke.

Umm let's see what's on todays list of MODDB blasphemy... Hmm... Oh yeah!

Moddb.com

How about we go up to every mod developer who's spent hundreds of hours of their life making something that thousands are waiting to download and just kick them in the balls, yeah I think that will work just fine.

It's also funny that the key people I expected to see posts from on this topic never even bothered, I'm sure they saw the shit that was happening, and turned their heads in disgust.

There is no way you can argue that such an abomination of a contest was played fairly because "People spam voted for a map AS A JOKE" and therefore it wins a modding contest. A modding contest where the best of the best put up their hardest efforts in an attempt to please their community.

A recount? Why have one? Because I doubt that a map actually beat 2 of those mods in particular without cheap spam (AKA Unfair multi-voting) or unless they counted the GUEST votes which are only supposed to be used in the case of a tie. the #1 rated UT3 mod and the near #1 rated Sourcemod BOTH UNRELEASED beaten by a map thats been around (For L4D anyways) only a few months.

I Don't even want to see what the best mod is going to include, for I'm already pissed off enough as it is.

MOTY is a joke

'Nuff said.

I think 2007 or 2006 were the best years in MOTY.

This one was kinda lame.

"Kinda" lame? Isn't that kind of an understatement X infinite?

Yeah I liked the massive list way best personally, where you could watch the mods you voted for make their way up into the top 5 spots.

Agreed.

A map, split into a map pack to make it look bigger. Beating mods that have taken so much time to create, so much effort, being beating by a map that was just unused from a mod that would have actually won that competition.
