    Hello there, everyone. At the time of writing this it's Christmas Day for me, so I'd like to wish everyone a happy holiday season regardless of what you celebrate. In terms of this actual post though, I bring news to you about Casters' Picks.

    Some of you may have asked me prior to this post about where the Casters' Picks awards have vanished to for this season. I've said for some time now that we wanted to allow the community to be able to have a say this season as last season when I first came up with and suggested the idea to the Media Team it was admittedly only about 30 minutes before the planned cast for the end of the season to the point where a few award winners may have been questionable, and so I am proud to say that we now have the voting open to narrow down players in to a shortlist!

    We have a spreadsheet here for anyone who's interested in seeing the eligible players alongside their vote counts, but just for those who don't want to view that spreadsheet we also have a list of eligible players in the spoiler below.

    Division 1:
    Avail: Ballin, Negens, Roy, Olifré, Dave.
    Charged Brigade: Hawk, Kyon, Tricks, Crash, Viraith, Derick.
    Friends United: rcs, Xander, Niko, Feysal, Killua.
    Vitality: Veil, Fox, Barney, Claw.

    Immortal Zodiac: Sniki, Raptor, MystiK
    WollywogZ: TK64, Jax, Tommy, Quinn.
    Yowndrift 2: Adagio, Embrez, Eon, Poison, Maik.

    From the votes here, we will pick the top few (number not finalised yet, likely top 5) and run down the nominations on a stream to select the actual winners based upon the shortlisted groups.

    We'd like to implement a few guidelines for voting, so here they are:
    - You may not vote for any more than 5 people per division.
    - You may not vote for yourself.
    - It would be advised to give reasoning where you feel the need, however it is not a requirement.
    - Your votes must be for people in the eligible lists or else they will not count.
    - The Media Team and/or Wiimmfi League Staff Team reserve the right to discount votes from people that they feel may not be seriously using the system, given that this community nomination is a luxury, not something that needs to happen.
    - Votes for people in the same clans as you will be monitored for any patterns, as will votes where it appears as if best friends are voting one another. If it appears as if any form of attempt to unfairly boost a player in to the shortlist is happening, again staff reserve the right to either revoke votes or check the reasonings.

    Votes are done simply by posting in this thread. From there, the list of vote counts will be updated as and when possible.

    The votes for the shortlist will end at 1pm EST, Saturday 31st December 2016. Please get your votes in prior to then, for the Media Team to then select the finalised winners on that weekend also.

    Thanks for reading, and get voting!

    D3
    [ut] Sane - Really solid for ut
    wZ Wally - Solid for wZ and stepped up huge in the playoff finale

    D4
    io Toxic - Played a major role in io's unexpected division run

    The list of players given is simply a list of those who played enough GPs to qualify (like the MVP award, you have to play over half the GPs in the season). People receiving MVP awards were already removed from the list by myself. The Media Team were going to have a few other requirements, but given that I'd made the list of people who'd played enough GPs 4 weeks ago pretty much, and given that the additional requirements didn't seem to be getting worked on at all, it was decided to just keep it simple.

    In terms of a good candidate, you're often looking for performances for their team. They don't have to score the highest (although it's obviously natural to pick them), but if you know that someone's bagging, or someone's teamwork, was a great attribute to their team, that's normally where you would be voting if we consider what was suggested to casters last season when they voted on stream.

    sorry if this comes as a saddening fact to you, but apparently everyone that played more than half of the GPs during the season was listed for voting.

    Embrez: A really good team carry (alongside myth ofc), and a fantastic player who had a great season.
    Spart: For running most of the races I saw him play in, a very good player.
    Maq: Should be in division 4, guided APE to many victories.
    Eric: Honestly, even though he played for my team, he got most of the shocks while bagging and while running he scored 100+ most of the times. Also played every GP of every war.
    Flare: Where do I start... This guy is something else, I don't know why his minimum division is 5, that needs to be looked into. Very good racer who uses items to full advantage. Has a big ego, but scores big points:rolleyes:

    Since I only played custom track WL I will vote for only CT divisions 1 and 2.

    1: MEGA, Luke, Veil, Ruby

    2:
    TK64, Storm, Dugo, Munckeyz

    Despite Luke as my own teammate I'm gonna have to give it to him. Really cool guy, huge CT player dropping 100+ half our matches, plus gaining chemistry with Myth and RusoX. Huge shoutout to him for improvement as a teammate as well :thumbsup:

    D1: rcs (most consistent player + leader with no tilt/rage at all)
    Tricks (2nd overall indivs was unexpected by probably everyone, really solid and underrated)
    Hawk (Best bagger in the world and it isn't close)
    Fox (Hard carry)
    TK (Hard carry)

    I don't wanna say other divs since I don't play / follow them as close and I don't wanna give uninformed opinions.
