Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

Guess I'll follow suit and use this post to keep my MOTY list updated. Not sure how long the list will be though. Last year had awesome quality, but there were only two matches by the end of it I'd consider calling MOTY. I guess matches get added and then taken away from these lists all the time.

I'm watching you...

Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

SHIT! I was hoping there would be more people doing their "Running List Posts" before we had this sorta thing come up. GATSBY! Moving forward...

BadNewsSanta you'll probably end up changing stuff on your list, moving it around or simply adding some and possibly subtracting others, but I think most people's lists will be rather large, not necessarly what we think are outright a MOTY possibility but more good enough to be mentioned.

For the Zayn vs. Kruger thing I A)Wouldn't consider it a 2014 match since it was taped in 2013 and B)personally feel ***3/4 is a good line for MOTYC thread since it means the reviewer thought it was really good which this is really what it is about. A ***1/4 starts things off on a bad note even if it is a good match.

Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

I'm glad that this was brought up early on since I am new here. What is the general consensus regarding the star threshold for listing matches in this thread? Personally, three and three-fourth stars and higher sounds acceptable to me, but if people preferred four stars and higher, that sounds reasonable. What are the thoughts of the community at large regarding this issue?

Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

We went through this shit at the beginning of last year to and settled on ***3/4 as the threshold for MOTYC.
