Fighting Game Community Awards - 2009 (Nominations 12/5 - 12/10)


#1

FIRST AND FOREMOST, this is a North American nomination/award process. Please keep that in mind before making any posts.

Fighting Game Community Awards - 2009

Hello everyone! I think we need to recognize the wonderful people within our community. This is the nomination round and I would like to collect legit nominations from within the community. I will be providing prizes for the winners, so once this gets rolling we can finally reward the hardworking community members/players for all they’ve done.

Please note, not ALL nominations will come from the forum suggestions/this thread, but also from a small panel of community members who have been running events for years.

Please limit yourself to one nomination per category. Thanks!

Nominate anyone that you think has made an impact on our community and has helped make it what it is today.


Keep the debate out of this thread, this is just for NOMINATIONS. If it gets out of hand I will delete posts without hesitation.

Once nominations have been submitted I will create a sub-forum/separate threads to start the voting process. Thank you!

Toss up between Markman and Seth Killian.


#15

I nominate Heartnana (is that allowed?) for BlazBlue.
At that time, I felt like Pulsr Wuku and I were the three invincible hokuto brothers… but then we all lost.

No idea if he is supposed to be considered JAPANESE or something though. He did win the US tournament Evo2k9 though.

STHDRemix: John Choi

Other games&catagories: I’m no longer involved enough in their communities to say for sure.

Last night Toan and fanatiq had a 47k pot rematch at the Absolute Battle in Dallas Texas
There should be a nomination for ryvalry of the year like JWong Vs Daigo

even though I would nominate toan vs fanatiq for that

26k money match a seasons beatings, 47k last night
Fanatiq won the race to 15 for 47k BTW
Ruin was there, the guy who plays poker was there too :rofl:
it was too hype

The score is 1-1, something tells me we might seea money match around 90k at EVO or something
