2014 Simulation Cup
It gives me great pleasure to (finally) introduce the winners of the 2014 Simulation Cup! Before we get to the results, however, I’d like to quickly remind everyone what the Simulation Cup is and how it works. It’s an annual competition that’s normally called the Tournament of Simulations where role play games of different clubs and genres compete against each other in a friendly manner for several awards. This year, each participating sim submitted one mission/episode/thread that was completed during 2014. Each submission was then evaluated by three judges on a specific criteria set. The games receiving the highest marks are now recognized.
Evaluating sims will always be subjective and this is especially true for the Simulation Cup. We’re not here to identify the best sim or sims as this is impossible. Instead, we recognize what we think are outstanding role plays that exude excellence. A different set of judges may very well chose a completely different set of winners. And that’s okay! Read More
There’s currently two awards you can nominate for right now, and both are certainly worth winning! Annoyingly, they both have similar names so I’ll try to clear things up. Read More
2014 Simulation Cup
That’s right–it’s that time of year again. It’s officially time to accept entrants for the only sim and role play competition that dates back to the last millennium (more specifically, 1999). What, you haven’t heard of the Simulation Cup? It’s an annual event where sims and role play games have the opportunity to showcase their excellence and compete against each other in a friendly manner to win various prizes. Oh yeah, it’s usually called the Tournament of Simulations (ToS), which you might be more familiar with.
How to Enter
The sim’s host (or host’s representative) will submit the short entry form below along with a sample of their role play activity. Read More
The Tournament of Simulations is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s tournament.
Over the past six weeks, a dozen judges busily reviewed the nearly 50 games that chose to enter this year’s tournament. Each game reviewed was compelling in its own right, full of dedicated players and entertaining stories. Nothing should be taken away from those that took part but did not place; for in the end this year’s competition was extremely tight, with mere points separating first and second place, and many places beyond that. In the end, the14 winning games, representing 8 groups, and spanning 10 genres, are representative of the diversity and creativity present throughout our entire gaming community. Read More
