Congrats to all the winners, but I did find one thing kind of weird about this year which was Hectic winning Rising Star. Not because Hectic *isn't* a deserving winner of the award, to be clear, but it just feels sort of off to me for someone to get both Don Corleone and Rising Star. DC feels to me like almost a more ~premiere~ award and sort of unnecessary for someone to receive a general "you played well but not quite top tier" alongside "you were literally the best individual scumplayer on site", especially when it means that someone else who also had a great year missed out on being honoured.

My one disagreement is I don't really view rising star this way, which makes the two less contradictory in my eyes.

I could also mention that there was only 1 nominee for Don Corleone last year.
Not that Hectic wasn't deserving, but it may help in considering things here.

If you want to stop Hectic this year, make sure to submit plenty of nominations! ;)

I think rising star needs to be retired. The criteria is way too confusing. I was nominated in 2019 when I had a 2008 join date. And it was like "well you barely played any in 2017-2018.". But also I didn't have a good winrate in 2019, people just liked me. Which some people think is a criteria and some don't.

It's very unclear to me how the award works
"Let us say that you are right and there are two worlds. How much, then, is this 'other world' worth to you? What do you have there that you do not have here? Money? Power? Something worth causing the prince so much pain for?'"
"Well, I..."
"What? Nothing? You would make the prince suffer over... nothing?"

If there's any year I feel safe criticizing the award.. hectic won like 7 awards I think he will be ok I hope.

Interesting. I think it has a good function but I also see what you are saying in that perhaps it should be fleshed out a bit more.

I invite everyone with thoughts on this into the Scummies Suggestions Thread :)

As soon as mastina gets to it, she's got the files. The title fairy is the one who changes banners.

People who have won multiple banners might receive an update to their banners sometime down the line they might not.

Congrats to all of the winners and Hectic for making history with the very first rotating banner.
Thing with Nancy is we just need to tread carefully because if you slip up around her as scum she notices and will tear your spine out and slap you to death with it. (I'm slightly scared of Nancy)~ the worst

Nancy is pretty heavenly ngl ~ CheekyTeeky

although definitely not with as many as Hectic

This is true, I used some as reference when making the 2 rotating banners this year! I need to find a better program for it tho, the past ones had a cool fade effect I did not have access to.

I still think they look awesome tho! =D
