    Casters’ Picks
    Casters’ Picks are a new idea thought up by myself. They enable the casters to pick people who weren’t expected to do as well as they did, and in reality caused a strong influence to their teams. It has been put in place simply as a way to commend those who may not be commended through the general system of “MVP”.

    The casters who attended the picking for this season were KP, KD, Aaron, Veil and myself.

    We intend for this to be something that is carried on for each season now that there are quite a few casters in the Media Team, and we feel as if it will hopefully lead to people getting more of the recognition they deserve instead of just the single man who is scoring the most points.

    For those who didn’t know, these were the general guidelines:
    - The player wasn’t to be predictable (as in, someone who was known to likely do well and met the expectations).
    - The player was not allowed to be the MVP of the division.
    - 3 players are to be picked per division.
    - Casters’ Picks were allowed to be from any team in the division, regardless of whether they were first or last in standings.
    - The players, much like for the competition for MVP, had to play 15 GPs or more in the division they were nominated for.

    So without further ado, here are the winners of the Casters’ Picks, congratulations to everyone who has won this award!

    Division 1:
    Kuzan - @Kuzan
    Rcs - @rcs
    Goomba - @Goomba






    Division 2:
    Aaron/Knee - @AaronCanHBC
    Jamie - @Jamie
    Roy - @OneRoyOne






    Division 3:
    Joel (CAN) - @Joel.
    KD - @~KayDee~ ✿⌒‿⁓
    Inviso - @inviso







    Division 4:
    Foster - @F
    Stunky - @Stunky
    Toxic - @Toxic






    Custom Track Division 1:
    Shamron - @Shamron
    Matt - @Matt
    Vig - @Vigorous A






    Custom Track Division 2:
    Suip - @Suip
    Sky - @SkyMKW
    Raptor - @DatRaptor






    Again, congratulations to these players, hopefully we can see these awards happening each season.

    If anyone has any comments or opinions feel free to share them in this thread, but be aware that we will be watching so no memes or anything irrelevant to the discussion.

    Not sure how the former Final Stand member was unexpected to do well in CT division 2, but there ya go. still really like this idea and agree with most of your choices - my boy @Shamron stamped himself down as one of the top CT players on Wiimmfi this season, and I'm proud of him for that <3

    Thanks for the shout, suprised I got this and that people know who I am. I see the upcoming season as a challenge for me, Maik, Adagio and I are pretty much responsible for carrying Yn2 this season as Poison, Veil, Raptor and Joel/Gray (?) have all transfered away either to another team or Yn1, this will be fun and interesting as we see new teams trying CTs.


    The reason Lars/Raptor was a suprise is because he hadn't played a lot of competitive mkw/ct prior to S7 due to problems loading ctgp.

    @rubified MVPs never got an award for seasons 2-6 due to GFX artist laziness and questionable staff decisions. I'm not sure if it's too late to make the MVP awards for previous seasons, but in my opinion it would be a tad weird to do so right now.

    We're trying to return to giving out MVP awards like we did in season 1, along with the new Casters' Picks.

    After quite some time spent working on them, the banners for the Casters' Picks have been made and edited in to the spoilers!

    Please feel free to give any feedback in regards to them, or request any form of minor changes (such as "Please can I have my name spelt differently" or something along those lines).
