The Return Of The FOD Awards: Titanfall!

February 27, 2014

It has been a long time since there was a game we could rally around, but The Blankman and I were thinking that Titanfall is it. At least, we gotta ride ‘er until she bucks us off. So, here we are with the NEW and IMPROVED FOD awards!

This page will hold all the possible awards that might be earned on any given gaming night, whether we are playing public or private. It is a collaborative deal, so just dump ideas and pics in here as inspiration and a good humor provide.

The Heisenberg Award– “I am the danger.”: Hardest to kill, baddest mofo of the weekly FoD

The Omar Award – “Come at the king, you best not miss!”: Awarded to the two-time consecutive winner of the Heisenberg Award.

    Grymm already won the Tom Cruise award indefinitely from the Beta alone.

    I think I recognize some of these from our saved films, am I right? 🙂

      You bet! 😉 We aim to please!

      By the way, in case it isn’t clear in the post proper, this was a collaborative project. Once we agreed that it needed to be done, Kenny’s flow couldn’t be stopped! SO MUCH WIN!

      I like it.

      I would like to submit the “Rage Against the Machine” Award for the most Titan kills in a match


      The “Wilt Chamberlain” Award for reaching 100 attrition points

      I’ll add pictures tomorrow lol

      You see, here I was thinking it was something good and you were actually complimenting me, but no. Not at all.

      Great to see the FOD Awards making a comeback! Less than 2 weeks folks!

    And…. This list just keeps getting longer.

    I have one. “The Godzila Award”

    The most enemy tramples in a night. Bots and humans.

    On one of Blankman’s vids (watch them again), I kept seeing Cornie’s name popping Up with Multiple multiple enemy Stomps! Stomp stomp stomp. Like in bunches of 5 at a time!

    That should be a part of our Top Five FOD’s

    We should go through our list and have a regular Holy 5. The others are auxiliary. As the events of each weekend unfold. Many nominees. Many awards. But Always, The top 5.

    For sure one will be “The Paul Bunyan”.

    I submit “Godzilla”

    What are the other three?

    And we need Top 2 Dubious weekly’s

    Oh one more thing. The Award Ceremony for the Beta starts now.

    We already know that Grymmie wins the Tom Cruise award. ( applause applause )….

    Now for another winner, and a nominee.

    Drum roll……..

    Cornie’s wins the Godzilla for the Beta!

    Blankman is my vote for “MF’n Paul Bunyan Himself is Knockin at the Front DOOR Award”!!

    Now back to you Mike… ( Applause applause. )

    Fantastic! Y’all have been adding directly into the post! I love the new awards!

    Kenai, great idea about the top 5 and the Godzilla award. Originally, we had the Wreckin’ ball to cover Stomp kills, but I like Godzilla, and M Cyrus really should be a Dubious Award anyway!

    (Kenny is at it right now, I can see. So, I can’t access the post. I have added the stuff here.)

    The Red Shirts is funny, but the chances that I will get it every darn week is too high for me to approve it. Can’t do that one. 😦 Whereas the Stallone Award can be avoided, nor is it so horrific to be FIFO, but the most deaths is just too harsh (for someone as close to it as me. LOL

    OK, my nominees (6) for the Top 5 Awards

    The Heisenberg Award (OUTSTANDING! it is the #1 award)
    The Duke Award
    The Paul Bunyan Award
    The Godzilla Award
    The Terminator Award
    The Wilt Chamberlain Award (See rEDs comment above)

    *Note: The Anvil Award cannot be one of the Top 5 because people can negatively affect the round if they are trying to time their Titan drops in order to win the Award. It has to be one of the extras Awarded serendipitously.

      I thought that you’d dig The Heisenberg Award, Suns. I got the idea when I saw Bryan Cranston in the Godzilla vid clip that you posted! LOL

      I agree with the omission of the Red Shirts. I’m just throwing stuff up to see what sticks! Ha!

    • February 28, 2014 3:27 am

      Kenny, it is SO GOOD it gets a double-sized image (I swapped out another) As you say, just seeing what sticks.
      I take no offense at further alterations.

      Also, I changed the order of some of the Awards according to significance.

      Gotta stick with the crude sketch of Heisenburg because it was so iconic in the show. The only other image that was iconic was the Pollos Dos Hermanos. That sketch of Heisenberg is instantly recognizable to anyone’s that watched the show. I think the rearrangement works well! Nice job!

    I like the Acme Anvil award in the top 5. It will be a fun diversion. Everyone tally up their own Anvil kills. And we declare a winner at the end of the night. I purpose that Anvil kills include all enemies. 5 points for crushing a Titan. 3 for a pilot. 1 for grunts n bots.

    Next one.

    Dark Knight

    But to win, you have to “xbox record that!”

    Upload all your highlights from the night, and we (your “peers”), vote for the winner. And we want commentary in your video. Montage if you want to win it.

    • February 28, 2014 3:22 am

      Kenai, conditions are a cool thing. Until MS fixes the Video Player so that we can sort and share better, I suggest that the only way people can get certain “Feat” Awards is if they actually bother to upload them to YouTube so that we can all enjoy them easily, and here on the site where the write-ups are expected to take place.

      So awards for Special Feats (e.g., The Dark Knight, The Jordan, The “In Yo Face”, The Mr. Bill etc.) must:
      1. Be recorded
      2. Be uploaded to YouTube and linked here.

      If it was awesome, then the extra labor won’t be so burdensome.

    The In-Titan Pilot executions are different depending on what class of Titan you are playing.

    Hijacking this post to share a quick PSA with you all: It seems as though updating your controller (if you’re in the OS Update Beta) should fix party chat issues.
