YAY For Lots Of WoW Awards

by on January 13, 2011

May I ask for your attention for a little while? I hope you’ve grabbed a drink, in case you haven’t help yourself over at the bar; it’s set on free for all tonight. This is a special occasion as you all know.

Larisa’s been a busy bee over the past few weeks. She’s grabbed two things – fun (y’know, the reason we play games at all) and the fact that the Oscar season’s coming up, and has mashed the two together. Along the way she’s prodded the community for nominations on a range of categories from the worst tabard in 2010 to the most memorable blog post to the best raid instance in game.

Over the course of the week she’s taken all the nominations and come out with a series of posts celebrating the nominees and winners of each of the categories. The first post was on Monday and got us salivating lightly by going through the raid and dungeon categories. Then Larisa posted up one post a day. The second post covers other bits n’ pieces we saw in game, like the LFD tool – all right, all right, quiet with the boos there! On Wednesday the post covering things that had most affected the WoW community arrived, then today the grand finale – the blogosphere awards.

This is a great series of posts. It’s not the first time Larisa’s done it, either. But this tradition of hers really feels like a bit of good hearted fun and at the same time brings the community together, giving them plenty to celebrate while we wonder what the new year will bring. And while you might think that 18 categories is already pretty impressive to manage and send out big yays for it sounds like she’s considering adding more categories to the list for next year. Can’t wait to see it.

And nope, we’re not just featuring these ‘cos we’re biased given we won a category.

Yes, amongst the many awesome winners (We Fly Spitfires, Manalicious, Shades of Grey) we’re absolutely delighted to say we won the award for 2010 Most Noticed Blogger Breakthrough! Wow! We’re utterly chuffed – it’s champagne and instancing night at MMO Melting Pot HQ tonight!

Big thanks Larisa, and those who nominated us. You made our day, and those are the kindest words yet said about the Pot.

So now it’s your turn – let’s have a three cheers for Larisa’s WoWOscars, and also for anything you enjoyed be it in game, in blogosphere, or in community, for WoW in 2010?

Oh thank you so very much! I’m really glad you appreciated it. To be honest it took me a crazy amount of time to put it together, more than you might imagine. Or probably you can.  To maintain your blog you’re probably spending time trying to cover and check up on as many of the blogs as possible, so you might have a good idea about what this sort of research takes of you to do.
Right now I’m rather exhausted, thinking like you do after a great party: “never, NEVER again!”. But I suspect that next year this time, I have forgotten this and happily start with yet another list. Because after all – it IS so fun to put it together and people seem to like it.

Grats to MMO Melting Pot! I couldn’t agree more with Larisa! It’s a reward well-earned, imo. :)

Thanks everyone! We were really happy to get the news!

@Larisa – aye, it looks like it was a mammoth task, and I think I can understand it to some extent! Kudos for it and enjoy the year’s “rest” – until the next one ;)

@Syl – thanks, and thank you also for the lovely nomination from you that Larisa posted up =)
