Award award. Awarding yourself for having come up with so many useless award ideas that it deserves an award.

why cant the awards be mod universal, as in for any mod?

the award system should be a part of the engine, not only for CA

Let me explain the rationale for award choices. Awards are given for positive or negative actions in the game. It is bad to give awards for a player's inaction because that doesn't determine something the player did, only what he didn't do, and this could go wildly wrong.

Think about awards for first player to lose or player who did least damage. Does this include a player who's dropped? If not, it will go to the first player to lose/do least damage that stays all through the game? If so, that would incentivize players to force themselves to drop. It goes on and on.

Awards are chosen to encourage players to play well, not for people to think up ways to win an award (or prevent getting an award) by doing stupid stuff like dropping from the game, or spamming 100 useless wezels just to get some award for that.

In other news, awards are now saved in planetwars games. For those who don't know what planetwars is, climb out from under that rock and ask someone.

That's true of every game. We make it a little easier by being open sourced, but achievement are 60% a personal thing anyways. You're proving to yourself you're good at the game. We'll just track achievement activity so people who are obviously hacking themselves achievements we can catch and purge their accounts.

It definitely has to be game side, can't be something universal to all mods/games, because that just won't make sense.

That page really needs to have descriptions describing what the winners accomplished. (damage: 205,330) doesn't really tell me anything if I don't know what the objective for "turtle shell award" is.

That's a good point, I'll work something out. Here is all we have for now: http://trac.caspring.org/wiki/Awards
