I think you're probably right with regards to the voting system - the straight voe is probably the way to go this time.

...but I don't think it's necessarily too late to move from a "skill" game to a draw - literally couldn't be simpler! (may be worth of a week long poll perhaps?)

That's exactly what I think. Voting system works, but the other part should at least be voted.

Best of luck to ALL! :ugdance:

I agree, Joe. Put up the poll and let's see what people think.

What if the rewards are not going to the one who guessed right most. But randomly to anyone who voted. This way maybe people will choose decks that they really think they like, not what they think woll win.

Not trying to offend anyone, but I think that all the effort to prevent people from "gaming the system", is kind of a "solution in search of a problem". Does anyone else actually have concerns about this?
To me, it sounds a little bit like all the attention that was given in the U.S. to supposed "voter fraud", which literally does not exist to any relevant extent.

Maybe these concerns are spawned by the fact that some of the "rewards" offered are quite valuable. I would even say that the top rewards are way out of proportion to the magnitude of our little contest.

I would absolutely support awarding prizes to a random draw of all legitimate entries. I also suggest splitting up some of the bundles/bricks of random decks, and awarding as many prizes as possible. That should help get more entries in, which I think is what we'd all like to see the most.

How do we prevent multiple entries? Well, you have to be a member to enter, and admins here are pretty good about blocking multiple accounts. Plus, let's say you have to have had at least one post from before Dec 1st 2016, or something like that?
Keep it Sizzlin'!

As opposed to legislative voting fraud, which is inarguable.
Compelling people to vote against their own better interests.

The discussion here revolves 'round heart/head votes, decks you like, rather than decks you consider will be more popular/win-able ?

I'm with th4mo here, there may always be a few people who will try to game the system, but I don't think it's anywhere close to being wide-spread. I would be in favor of awarding the prizes randomly as a reward for your honest vote and participation in the contest. This would greatly simplify the whole process and I think the excitement would still be there because it would almost be like the lottery in winning a prize.

I know I've mentioned this before, but I would like to see a Hall of Fame to showcase winning decks from past years.

I would also be in favor of awarding prizes at random. I haven't seen most of the decks on the list, especially the high-end, limited edition ones. I end up voting for the decks that I think everyone else will vote for. I think we would get a more accurate idea of the decks most folks really liked if we went with random prizes.

My proposal was certainly in line with Th4mo and sinjin7. While the "gaming the system" might be a concern or not (I don't think anyone tries to, but it can condition votes incertain cases), I favor the random system for the simple reason that every forum member opinion is valuable and based on his criteria and experience. Is it fun to see who gets closer to the final list? Of course. Should it be rewarded? I don't really think so. That's why I prefer the draw.

The voting and prize selection was redesigned two years ago to make it less random.

I really don't see any reason to change, nor have I seen anything close to "gaming the system".

I am always willing to change, but change for sake of change - not so much.

It would never be change for change's sake - the system has been criticised each year for exactly the reasons outlined. I don't think it's broken, but I do think it could be better and it cant hurt to explore the options.

Perhaps nothing as cynical as gaming the system has been obvious - but if you go back to the 2014 topic people were quite open in admitting that it would influence how they voted (or that they would try not to let it knowing they would lessen their chances in the contest.)

Having seen it working for a couple of years it cant hurt to put a poll up (which I will do tonight) if only to gauge the general opinion.

I hate to be "that guy" but I still haven't received my Celestial decks so should they still be considered a '16 deck?

Well we're two weeks into January so I'll have to take this up in the Celestial thread I suppose. Thanks!

Are you sure they started shipping in december??? Last thing I read (this month) was that the decks were still in Taiwan... I'm sure Celestial will have to wait for next year's contest.
