Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

Yeah I don't think NO votes are going to work as well in this system haha. Don't think a NO vote should be one that simply doesn't clear the threshold. Would have to be a bit more decisive than that in my eyes.

Davey Richards vs AR Fox
****
Not a MOTYC but still a fun match with a nice story going into it.Not too much psychology but I appreciate it for the hard hitting strike exchanges and the great athleticism.

Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

I don't understand why people put "fun" matches they clearly don't think make the cut in this topic when it clearly states that it's a Match of the Year Candidate thread. Not trying to knock anybody who does this, the poster above me from whom I got the idea for this post, especially. Just curious.

Well, for those I didn't PM, the nominated match was only *** 3/4 compared to **** 1/4 for the highest in their post. Now, the only way that three-star affair lasts in their top 10 for New Japan is if the company shuts down midway through the year (considering how highly most people here take them).

It's a pity we can't do NO votes, Nakamura/Tanahashi with 8 YES votes really shouldn't be something that someone new to Puroresu watches.

Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

tbf, someone new to Puro might take to the flash of Tanahashi vs Nakamura. Not to mention w/the scales tipping in the favor of YES; thinking particularly less of it, is more of a minority opinion in this thread.

Just to add my two cents to this, I think it's perfectly acceptable to mention four-star rated matches in here, even if they're not highlighted as bonafide MOTYC, purely because we can all agree that we have varying tastes on this board, and invariably someone will like it a lot more than the poster who originally suggested it. Understandably, we wouldn't want anyone throwing a 'MOTY nomination' at every **** match, but in terms of posting here to highlight a great match, I'm all for it and that's why I make sure I check this thread daily.

Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

That's what the thread should be for, on the whole. Picking and choosing the "best of the best" is more of the sub-scenario within this thread. Or certainly the part I put the least amount of importance on.

AGREED!

Best of the best from the year without structuring from the beginning feels like it'd make a nice end of the year project. I think pointing out the really good to high end MOTYC's makes this a nice wide variety of stuff. Didn't think Masters vs. Hoyt from TCW last year was a clear MOTYC but I feel not having it in this thread would have been sad.

Re: The 2014 MOTYC Thread

The general rule every year has been restrict it to ***3/4-**** matches. Regardless of the new NOMINATIONS method this year.
