I think people vote at random- in low levels on an alt, I've had so many games where I'm at 120k damage, we have no healers, and half our dps is around 30k- yeah, it's pretty bad- yet most of the votes go to someone who has done in an entire match what I do in a combo.

This is it exactly, both in Real Life AND in games.

An MVP vote is one comm. Big deal. Best you queue up for another WZ, and even if you lose, you'll more than make up those possibly-lost MVP comms and to spare, If I get MVP votes, I like to think it's because someone perceives I've done something towards winning the match, rather than because I topped Chart A or whatever. Give me a win over an MVP vote any time.

Do do you only vote for DPS that do more than just DPS?

and this thread of yours is all about selfless.

hay, I'm attention Wh... vote for meeeeee!!!111oneoneone

to the subject, votes are random usually.. I pvp as 2 dps/tanks (respec depending of need, 2 sets of gear), sniper and a healer, sometimes I get 7 medals as dps, sometimes I do fast cap run on voidstar (granted by my team who served as distraction) and get 0, and sometimes as a ball carrier with 3 solo scores I get 1 vote...
sometiems after double ninja on voidstar on my assassin, I get 0 votes even if I heard 'good job ninja' in ops chat from 4 people...

again, MVP are random, situational, and not realy any reward, more like 'recognized' and if you werent, well, you don't get mvp.
people might vote less for sorc/sage healers as many of them guard nodes and reducing their health to put up numbers on healing. Bad Karma.

Not 1 vote, I have been playing healer for last 2 weeks and I think in that Time i have gotten 3 votes, I can understand not voting for a DPSee, or a HUTBALL capper, as you do not really know who did what to help the game, a 1st place DPSer just may have been out for kills teh whole game not helping I have done that and come 1st in DPS.

and in hutball you cannot tell who did the capping at the scoreboard, but healers are eveident, VOTE FOR EM or you will probably start losing healers. After every game when i get no votes i feel like never healing for a PYG ever again, but i also like it, it's frustrating. Show some appreciation guys & gals.
On my healer i have the highest average of MVPs/Medal ... a little advice: heal those that will recognize it and win you the game. Nothing more to say. Ever tried to get just ONE Mvp as a tank managing to get 250k guard in a PUG?

What is with the Tanks? They keep you alive and defend your ***. If i see a good tank i give him my MVP, or when i see a player wo contributed alot in a BG, sometimes i give some ppl MvP for using not so mainstream specs and classes, like Vigilance in PvP as a Jugger (rocks really hard).

MVP votes do not mean squat anyway. But why should healers get all the votes? In some matches like AE, i will have the lowest dmg, kills, medals, etc. But the fact that i take out 2+ defenders and steal the enemy pylon at the last moment at the right time in each round, not only effectively ends the match a round or two early, but guarantees a win.

Yes, i could death match in the middle and pad my stats, or defend out pylon and get defense medals. And since i do not complain/brag about it in the WZs, i get 0 votes 99.9% of the time. Does that mean a healer in the match is more important? other WZs have other stat-padding going on as well.

Stats do not mean anything in any WZ. MVP votes is just a popularity contest to help friends give medals to their friends. When i play my madness sorc, i get ~400k+ dmg and 200-300k healing. People look at those stats and think 'great off healing sorc', which isnt true, though i do offheal some, most of those heals are from bubbles (non stun variety bubbles) or off-heals.

And for the record, I only vote for folks i personally see doing something good in a WZ, never based on stats at the end of the match. And i'll leave immediately when the 'exit warzone' button appears, as i do not care whether people vote for me or not. All i care about is the win, the credits and the comms. And rarely, if ever, will i vote for a smash-monkey or a bubble-stunning bozo, as those are two of the most idiotic specs ever designed, regardless if they are on my team or not. And i have zero respect for the medal whoring, stat padding mechanisms of those classes (classes, not the players).
