Yet another season has passed in The War Room, we’ve had our games come and go, and now it is time to welcome everybody to the 2020 TWR awards! As always, around this time of year we take this opportunity to look back on the past season of TWR, and the moments, games, and players that made the season what it was! It goes without saying that this section of the forum would be nothing without you guys, and as such, we create these awards yearly to commemorate this. Votes will be open until the 14th August at 23:59 BST (A countdown can be found here), please make sure to read the rules below before you vote:

  1. Voters must have completed at least one of this season’s games, either through playing or hosting.
  2. Staff members are eligible to receive awards.
  3. Voters are not permitted to vote for themselves.
  4. You may not vote for best town/mafia performance if you were in that group in that game.
  5. Voting will be public and in this thread only. Voters can only vote for one person/game per category.
  6. Voters can give the reasoning behind their votes with a small explanation, but it's not mandatory.
  7. Two further awards - Best Player and Best Host - will be awarded to the person who accumulated the highest number of votes across the categories of the Player Tier and the Host Tier respectively. Should the winners of the Best Player Award and the Best Host Award win more than half the categories in their respective tier, they would solely win that respective award, and their other awards would go to the person that has garnered the second highest number of votes in those categories.
  8. You are not required to vote in all categories. If you like you can vote in one or you can vote in them all. As long as you vote only once, in each.
  9. If you wish to add to or change your votes after posting, please edit the original post and tag the moderators in a new post to notify them of the change.
  10. Only players whose first ever completed played mafia game was in this season are eligible for the Best New Player award. (See below)
  11. Only hosts whose first ever completed hosted mafia game was in this season are eligible for the Best New Host award. (See below)
  12. For the Most Sportsmanlike Conduct award, players that have subbed out of the game (as part of the sportsmanlike act itself) are eligible.
If you have any questions about what an award means or eligibility, just ask any of the mods.

What does Best Save mean? What's the criteria?
Also who are the new Hosts and Players for this season, it's hard to remember.

Check the Mentor game for new players, since I imagine it would have the highest concentration of new players in any game this season.

Best Save refers to those moments where someone did something to save a moment or the game where it would otherwise seem like it was lost. Does that clear it up enough?
I'll try to tackle the latter part later for you.

We have decided to add another award
Best New Host - Non-Mafia Host Tier
This only seems fair with the Mafia Tier also having one and at the same time promoting non-mafia games.
There is only one eligible candidate though, giving an automatic victory by my vote
@Acrobatic Crobat
I've also added a list of eligible new mafia players (it better be worth it, given the time it took to confirm these players were actually new)
@ShinyRockruff204
@BackSet
@Laurentus
@Tood
@Blaine
@Acrobatic Crobat
@captain chib
@Silverfish
@Poyzin
@CyanideCrystal
@Felly
@DawningWinds
@Snowstorm
@Auxillify
@Patrycjator
@Giri
@ミ☆ ᴍyᴜᴍᴀ
@Zorchic
@Frozen Fennec
@Agent2583
@prog rocker
@jamiebearcub
@KohKimura64
@Vroendal
@naga10
Again, if you think you should or shouldn't be in any of these lists, let us know

Given my inactivity this season, I'm not sure who to vote for. Or even if I have (much of) a chance at any awards this year.

I wouldnt call inactivity a reason to not vote at least. You never have to vote for all the categories either. How I often do it is by going through the game list, looking at those I've participated in (As host, player or maybe even MoD) and look at what stood out to me.
