August 2011 Lossomoff Champion Loser

Nominated by Trane

August 13th, 2011 - September 11th, 2011
The lossomoff was a pinacle moment in AwesomeOff History. AwesomeOff spends a lot of time on the positive spectrum, so we decided it was OK for a month to have a little fun with the misfortunes of others. Don't miss-read the graphic above though, Graham Barker is in no way a 'Loser', he's awesome. Simply put, nothing on AwesomeOff is not awesome, and the fact that he won at least one match shows that his status is legit. The Navel Fluff Collection is awesome, its just not really all that awesome, and statistically speaking, it is one of the least awesome things we've had on the site.

When it came time to hold the finals for the LossomOff, the path was clear that it would have been meaningless to declare a winner. The highest ranking LossomOff nominee Is still only winning because it was matched up with the entries on the site that have been voted less awesome than 500 or so other nominations. No, the only fitting thing to do was declare a loser. So we drew up a bracket with the bottom 8 nominations, and allowed only losers to advanvce. After entering the playeoffs in last place, Navel Fluff kept up its losing ways and closed out the victory.. er.. collapse.

So, if you're out there Graham, we're sorry. The voters are just not feeling a collection of Navel Fluff... maybe try fingernails and boogers?

Late Start, Upcoming Schedule

July 2011 got off to a late start, but it was worth the wait. Hats off to Olav Rokne this month. He nominated like a bizillion things, and even helped write the entries for a bunch more. We would not be here without him.

So the schedule will be as follows:

  • July 10th - Aug 7th: July 2011 Round Robin
  • Aug 8-10: July Tournament
  • Aug 11-28th: Lossomoff Round Robin
  • August 29-31: Lossomoff Tournament

What is a Lossomoff? We'll, that is still somewhat TBD, but the basic idea is this: There are 15 past entries that have zero wins, dozens more have only one or two. But everything ever nominated to AwesomeOff is here for a reason: because its awesome. Sure some just couldn't find away to beat anything, but that doesn't make them not awesome.

The Lossomoff will seek to correct this. It will serve as a forum for redemption—a theatre of the absurd—an AwesomeOff for all the entries that were a bit of an 'acquired taste'.

So, if you can think of something you think deserves this chance, email ivan@awesomeoff.com your top 5. If the entry has already run on AwesomeOff, it must have lost more than 80% of its matches. If you have an entry you've always wanted to submit, but were sure it would scrape the bottom of the barrel, send that along too. Selection of the list will a tightly contested debate, but the end result will be some good love, for some awesome stuff that needs it.

If you have not already, create an account or Login. Votes by logged in users are worth three times as much as anonymous votes.
