My only problem for this is that participation awards don't feel as rewarding as MVP awards.
It's true but the process of choosing the MVP is harder than i imagined.
I have to agree with Rohan for awarding the number of participations for players and hosts. This will be enough for the time being.

You won't get an award for playing one game. You will get the award if you play 10 games or something. It will take effort and time to dedicate if you want to meet the requirements of the award.

Yea, I get your point, I can't speak for everyone else but, being awarded a trophy because you were the most valuable player, the person with the most effect in the game feels just that much more satisfying then getting rewarded for playing 20 games. Unless the participation only counts for people who lasted till the last phase. *.* that sounds very situational though...

But overall I understand why a participation would be better, as a beginning reward it'll be easier to give out because of its ability to be easily counted, rather then MVP awards which have many variables other then games played.

The game hosts can select an MVP for their game if they want to and they will get the MVP banner that I made to use in their profile or signature. Some hosts might even give Premium or Kin to MVP's. So it will be present and not done away with. I think it should not be the official means of obtaining an award because of the issues present.

I do understand your point. The satisfaction of being the most valuable player is unmatched. However, MVP decisions are very subjective in nature so standarizing them is not easy.

In games, you have people whose night actions are so on point, they’re the main reason for the win of their faction, even when the player was not so influential during the day phase. In the same line, you have players whose day phase performance is on point, however, their night actions are not so accurate.

It would be pretty much up to the host’s appreciation of each player’s performance and what they consider more valuable, to give the MVP title but that means the metrics will vary from game to game and not every player will be measured in the same unit.

That’s why I think an event every now and then, to give recognition to the most influential players, taking in consideration a pool of games, is a nice way to go about the MVP medal.

We can do a Hall of Fame kind of thing. Like the RP one: https://animebase.me/threads/the-rp-hall-of-fame.699736/. But that can only happen when there are a lot of games hosted.

get one for winning the mafia game, thats it for me to be honest, its the only prestigious thing that could be valid. the rest of the possible awards you could make, would simply be that, honorary awards for "participating" in my opinion.
I was surprised that that isn’t how it works here but it is possaible to play a better game and lose.
