Why do people give MVP votes to the worst player in the game?

I usually end the game with top protection, top damage, and top objective but you know who gets the most mvp votes? The person with the lowest damage, healing, etc etc.

Do people purposely sort by stat and vote for the lowest rated player on the team? Why do they do this? It's not just one game, this happens almost all the time on my server.

Why so bothered? 1 commendation per vote is a pittance anyway.

cause with to everything you get at least +50 commedations.

The lowest guy probably has crappy gear and get like +5 commedations from medals. Do those 3-5 MVP votes really matter that much to your ego? Why not give them a few more commedations.

Just because someone was lower in the "medals" didn't mean they were the worst player, they may have put in a tremendous effort towards winning the match at a cost to there personal score and it was noticed.

Numbers are epeen, winning matches are what matters.

this

also if im not playing with friends ill mvp vote a player i see defending a node all game or someone who lines himself up perfectly for a pass etc. i vote for ppl who win the game for us. if ppl are just trying to get "top damage" by deathmatching in the center then ya they dont get a vote.

if no one stands out, the top healer always then gets my vote.

Yes let us reward someone for being the top in EVERYTHING....the medal system is so messed up you should have a min of 8 if your the beast you claim.

With that said, why would you give MORE rewards to someone when there are other people who didn't receive as much? The goal is to get your TEAM in gear as well as you, so that your TEAM has a chance to win.

So I say keep voting the low medal count players, they could use it more than you
