This was a group effort, so first of all thanks to the designers for making levels and to everyone who played of course.
There haven't been a lot of cups lately, but hopefully this system can reinvent cups again if I ever get it fully done. But know that anyone can use it now, it's just not super user friendly, just ask finman ;)
I believe I started thinking of this cup already around the 6th or 7th anniversary of Kopasite, awesome that it actually happened and happened well, let's see what the next 10 years of kopasite will bring..

Couldn't have made this without the WR drivers, so those need a thanks for agreeing to share their recs and for driving amazing times ;)
Did a bit of a mess up with first version, it was one of those things where you have some idea of how it's gonna be and really want it to be like that. I got it in my head that I wanted to get it out on a sunday and not a boring monday so ended up rushing it in the end
anyway I like movie making and this was cool to do, I guess it ended up not too bad anyway

First step:
People in the community give their favoured suggestions to who should be nominated in the different categories in the proper GAA thread on Mopolauta. To be able to vote in the third step, one must make suggestions in the thread. It is not compulsory to make suggestions in more than one category, but that is of course recommended.

Second step:
The jury members will choose ten candidates to each category according to their experience and knowledge. They will be also reading the community's suggestions.

Third step:
Now we have top10 for each category available and again the community can vote. The criteria for being allowed to vote are: well-known player (decided by the jury) and the player has posted some suggestions in the first step (so we see that he has been active during the whole process) or he doesn't have to be well-known if he posted a nice suggestion list with reasonable arguments. These limits are set for getting more appropriate votes. People don't have to vote in every category but if they do vote in some category they must pick their top5 and not just top1 or top3.

Fourth step:
The jury will collect the top5 for each category according absolutely to the community votes. The point system will be as follows: 5 points to every first position, 4 points to every second position etc. This will be the top5 to be used in the final show.

Fifth step:
The different jury members will vote over the different categories, and the community will also give 2 votes to the candidate who got most points in the third step, and 1 vote to the candidate who got the second-most points. The different jury members' votes will not be public. In the event of a tie, the candidate who got most points from community in the third step will win. If there still is a tie, the one who got most 5 points will win, then 4 points etc. If the winner cannot be resolved by this, the jury will come together and discuss the matter to declare a winner.

Voting for the Community Award:
Each voter will list up to 3 people, in ranked order from 1st to 3rd. Each 1st position will give 5 points, each 2nd position will give 3 points and each 3rd position will give 1 point. Voting in this category is not compulsory.
