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.
Look closer. In random matches it's almost always the player with the most healing that gets the most MVP votes. Guild mates in the same match typically vote for each other.

If people queue up with others its common to see them voting for friends.

I know when I run a premade if we're three BM and one champion we'll all vote for the champion.

Also, its common, especially in huttball, for the person with the lowest stats/medals to be the one who has done all the work.

Roll a healer if you want a guarenteed 2+ medals every game (need to have top healing usually though.)

Numbers are epeen, winning matches are what matters.
It just makes me angry that I try so hard to carry the baddies on my team and don't get awarded for it. While the guys who are just "along for the ride", pretty much afk in a corner gets showered in MVP votes while I complete their dailiy for them.

When I vote for people, It is rare that I vote for those with the most medals. Why? I find that people with the most medals, not always but offen, spend the WZ farming medals instead of actually working to the objective to WIN. Highest damage, most medals, most whatever... dosn't win the WZ, it usually cost us the WZ.

I never give mvp to top-damage kiddies. they're self-serving and narrow-minded.

however, i will give mvp to the guy who i think tried the hardest to get the job done, who helped keep his team mates alive. Dudes running around just getting thrill kills and racking up dps for his ego are useless. they get nothing from me but a /golfclap.

LOL! You're nothing special. People who call others "baddies" are usually just bratty kids. They don't deserve serious consideration.

And the last time I checked this game carries a subscription. People can play it however they want with complete disregard for your perceived gaming strategies.

As a merc in huttball, I usually try to cc and blow people down the rafters more then dps, so the ball runner and his "reciever" can both get by and score with little resistance. That means I do very little damage in total compared to others. That doesn't make me a bad player...we usually win 6-0 on my pvp team. So yea, you aren't really looking at things the right way. I know that damage is king for most people, but if you ever care to look, most of the highest damage dealers come from the losing team. Mainly because they pew pew with aoe while the team gets destroyed. Just sayin...

As a tank, I vote for the top healer, period. They need encouragement, because the current system screws them over badly, medal-wise. Good chance that the lowest-rated person isn't just undergeared - they're horrible. Back when I hit 50 on my alt, I did more than enough to justify being in the match, and was in top 3-4.

On the other hand, some people with half-Champion gear looked like they just picked their nose, dying over 10 times in a none-too-intensive match and getting nowhere on damage, protection, objectives and healing.
