This player is just a very terrific mod.
There are so many factors to what makes a mod really stand out and basically, they perform across all categories.

Their setups, particularly across the normal & micro categories, have always been cleverly conceived and well executed. Their designs are elegant, but push boundaries and add really interesting layers to the game without blatantly changing its form. (And while he doesn't tend to stray into Open Setup territory, his instincts for popular underutilised open setups (for 2018, I suppose that's just Coalition) are sound).

It's difficult to bottle what stands out to me about his setups, but off the top of my head a couple of stand-outs would be: using a weak fruit vendor as a gated clearing role; having a scum watcher who is informed of the existence of a town neapolitan who in turn is informed of the identity of a town ascetic PR; the infamous mafia loud vanilla cop in a game with three masons.

From a day-to-day modding perspective, I think he sets an example for what good modding is on MS. His vote counts and presence are regular without flooding. He's absolutely professional, and always approachable. His flavour decisions are interesting and super cool. He conducts himself as a mod in a professional way, but simultaneously somehow carries his flavour & public posting in a totally enjoyable and unpretentious way.

I could continue for a fair while about why I think he deserves modfather, but ultimately his skills speak for him. If you haven't played in any of his games, or seen them around much, I'd encourage you to go have a look at a few.

this is going at the top of my resumé

thanx everyone ! i've been hugely enjoying the way my games go, i think part of that is that setup fundamentals of people playing on the site lately have been great and i can, with an outline of a setup and some potential emergent mechanics, assume that people will play the setup out to an interesting outcome and use all the reasoning tools available. in micro 840, my favorite game from last year, it went the way it did because scum were paying attention, skitter stayed active the whole game, people didn't treat meph 39 as conftown (while town would have benefitted from doing so i think it was more exciting for them to be potentially lynched), etc etc

of course i have to mention There Are Many Other Great Moderators Here That Ought To Be Recognized and it's a great demonstration of people naturally helping and entertaining each other, which is part of why i do it myself. that said i will definitely enjoy having the banner

Okay :]
If you did give us some high quality games then that makes me happy since that makes 2019 a good year if more mods are giving high quality and games to remember!

Congrats Schaad.


Faith in MS restored.

Spoiler:
One of the most important qualities of a good mod, is treating the players in their game with respect. I’m glad the award went to a mod who didn’t neglect the importance of that.
