Post news RSS Mod of the Year 2017 kickoff

December has begun around the world which means voting booths are live on all mod profiles, and it's time for the players to nominate the 2017 Mod of the Year.

Posted by on

Welcome to the 2017 Mod of the Year awards the largest modding event on the web, celebrating the hard working and dedicated mod community.

Forget about loot crates for a while

Forget raging about loot crates, pay to win and microtransactions ruining our games and instead focus on the best (and freest) part of PC gaming, MODS! Many of the biggest names in gaming have embraced modding at some point in their history, so for the next 30 days let's make some noise. Let's show how much mods mean to us and how much business they drive by voting for your favorites and supporting games that embrace modding. Then, come the end of December your votes will help decide this year's best upcoming and best released mod. Here is how it works.

Phase 1 - Nominations Begin

For the next 10 days, every mod profile (see our year in review) on the site has a voting booth. Just click the big "vote now" button to show your love and help get your favorite mods into the TOP 100.

Phase 2 - The TOP 100

After nominations have been tallied, the TOP 100 will be unveiled on the 11th of December and a final round of voting begins for 10 days to determine the 2017 victor.

Probably, it would be beaten by some russian mods that are available on, but no one translate them or move to moddb :/
They really dont care about getting more players and expand community input especially in terms of addons.

Moddb have simple way to manage mods and players files but russian devs just dont get it, and for most of time they literally stick to just one place to advertise they mods...

ZPS is still a thing? By the gods, I haven't even thought about the Source engine since probably 2008.

It's still alive after 10 years. It's a standalone modification now. You don't need an ownership of a Source game to play it anymore.

No prizes this year? Is it that you did not find someone to sponspor this year's MOTY awards or you did you simply not have time to find one? And is the project you are working on, along with the new version of ModDB?

Whatever the situation, good luck once again to everyone and glad that MOTY continues non-stop for the last 16 years :) !
