JCS Awards 2013 - Voting

This the moment all you JCSers and JCS enthusiasts have been waiting for - your chance to vote for your favourite uploads from the past year!

The rules (according to Ragnarok):

1) You are allowed to vote for one level/person for each category, no more.
2) You are not limited to voting within the nominations, but you are advised to at least check these levels if you haven't already, in order to make your vote fair. Also, please provide a download link to these levels - unreleased/unfinished levels cannot be voted for.
3) Votes are to be kept private. In order to vote, post your votes here and then delete the post after you have posted it, and a moderator will recover it when voting is over. Alternatively, if this doesn't work for you, you are allowed to PM them to me, but I will announce your votes once voting is over.
4) Anyone who does not follow rules 1 and 3; your votes will be null and void.

I think a voting period two weeks seems like enough time - so voting will end on 24th February at 23:59 GMT+1. If you post after this time, your vote will be invalid.

Get voting!

Heh, just checked out the remainder of nominees and voted just in time before closure.

Violet seems to be 2013's biggest entertainer in JJ2-land, but some choices were definitely close calls to make. Especially the Battle, CTF and AngelScript categories made for some almost evenly good releases. Keep in mind though, my votes for multiplayer levels are still influenced by the levels that I actually played in multiplayer, which weren't all of 'em.

In terms of AngelScript, I voted Tetris in 'Best Use' even though I think Ozymandius took a wider approach with AS features. Tetris demonstrated a 'JJ2 without JJ2' gameplay which felt as a pleasent surprise first time I started it. Ozymandius played like a fresh new SP level with every aspect thoroughly scripted, which to me is the best level of 2013!

I've decided to extend the deadline by one week to 3rd March, in the hopes that we'll get a few more votes. Since the thread wasn't bumped due to the deleted posts, people may not have seen this thread.

Going to add one final extension to Sunday, 9th March. Regardless of how many votes we get from now until then, this will be the last extension - we'll just have to make do with what we get.

Would be a good idea to do some more advertising in any way you can, in case you didn't do so yet. Otherwise this extension probably won't return anything either.

Voting is now closed! Thank you to everyone who took part. The results will be posted shortly.

Now I'll need a mod to PM me the voting results from the deleted posts so I can tally up the votes, and subsequently another post will be made to showcase these results, along with the undeleting of the posts made here.

...And the results are in!

Best Battle Level

Winners: Alcatraz (2), Cerulean Comet (2), Gloom (2)
Runners Up: Shimmering Cavern (1), Trembling Tundra (1)

So, we have a three-way tie. All three levels are most certainly worthy of the award (if I'm allowed to be arrogant in this case). No one likes a tie, so I say we resolve this the good-old-fashioned way: lets have a poll to determine king of the hill, aka the true winner.

Best CTF Level

Winner: Stronghold (4)
Runners Up: Canyon Grove (2), Depths of Void (1), Epitome II (1), I feel like having a déjà vu... (1)

Stronghold was one of the most prolific MP levels of last year due to winning the JJNet CTF contest and getting some play on the ladder, so it's no surprise that SJ's level took the crown. I expect we'll be seeing more from this level in the future. My own level, Canyon Grove, perhaps doesn't have the same universal appeal as Stronghold, but I'm still pleased to see that it got a couple of votes.

Best Other MP

Winner: Forest Wheel (5)
Runners Up: Nuostabus Pobudis (2), Dragon RF Test (1)

Another clear winner. Forest Wheel is a small but awesomely creative level that showcases the power of AngelScript. If anything, it's proof that even MP levels can still reap the benefits that scripting brings to JJ2 just as well as that of any SP level. Expect a few interesting events next JDC.

Best SP Release

Winner: Ozymandius (5)
Runners Up: Hereafter (3), Looking for Answers - Part 1 (1)

This is an interesting result. Whilst I guess most people expected Ozymandius to win due to its titanic status in the community, I must add that Hereafter is most certainly a worthy runner up, that may have been overlooked slightly following the release of the former. Although relatively short, both are some of the finest Single Player levels to have been created in the last couple of years, and point towards a revival in the SP level design scene, after it became stale following the release of Devres.

Best JJ1 Level

Winner: Bad Seed (2)
Runner Up: Nippius Heights (1)

It's rare enough to see one JJ1 release to J2O in a single year, but getting two is something special. A small margin obviously, but I guess it's right that there should be a winner. Both are worth checking out, and perhaps more people will be inspired to dabble with JJ1 level creation this year after playing Sonic With A Gun.

Best Use of AngelScript

Winner: Ozymandius (5)
Runners Up: Shimmering Cavern (2), Hereafter (1), Tetris (1)

Violet CLM breaks new ground in more ways than one by becoming the first JCSer to win two categories with the same release. Ozymandius is a truly spectacular level - download it and play it ASAP if you haven't already, and prepared to be stunned into how sophisticated JJ2 level design can now be when enhanced by AngelScript. Props to all the runners up too: all of them make great use of AS in their own unique ways. Personal "hats off" to the Tetris level: if anything it's just crazy to imagine anything like that could've ever been pulled off in JJ2.

Best JCSer

Winner: Violet CLM (5)
Runners Up: Foly (1), Loon (1)

Never has there been more of a worthy recipient of this category until now. Violet CLM has been a dominant force in the JCS scene over the past year; consistently producing awe-inspiring levels that make you question reality. He continues to demonstrate an incredible sense of ambition and dedication to the game, and will no doubt continue to inspire in years to come. Perhaps the shock value from playing his scripted levels will fade with time, but regardless, it's hard to deny the influence that this guy has had on level creation in 2013.

The poll to decide the Best Battle Level will close on Sunday 16th March. A mod will open it shortly, as well as reveal the deleted posts.

Here's to an awesome 2014!

I will vote for Alcatraz as best Battle level.

A bit disappointed by the lack of votes this year but it's understandable.

Voting for Alcatraz.

Also probably going to open the poll for a bit longer, as it seems people only just started to vote.
