Gallente Federation Honor Heroes

I'll give you the British spelling, but no English speaker will EVER spell heroes as "heros". Not to mention that the author of the article clearly used the American spelling.
Doesn't change the fact that the grammar is still wrong. Gallente Federation is a single entity and should be treated as singular, so the correct phrasing of the title would be:Gallente Federation Honours Heroes
Believe it or not, the moment you log into this game, you are already roleplaying. If you go around shooting other people in lowsec for fun and profit, you are already roleplaying a pirate even if you do not care about the lore. If you engage in Nullsec warfare, you are already roleplaying an alliance grunt. Doesn't matter if you know next to nothing about the lore at all.
Thank you for "giving" him the fact that the English way of spelling "honour" in English is correct after you said it wasn't. You truly are understanding and merciful.

Last week, the Federation’s Citizen of the Year awards were presented to those members who stand as pillars of the Gallente faction warfare community. The awards are the brainchild of Mekhana, who said that she did it after being inspired by the Amarrian awards and felt that the Gallente could do it “better and democratically”.

The awards were divided into five categories, honoring different kinds of contributions such as fleet command and tactical innovations. Members of the militia were nominated by the public and voted upon by a panel of three judges. Some confusion came out of this - many people didn’t seem clear on the rules, some nominated the same person over and over, as if they were casting a “vote”, and the distinction between a few of the awards seemed to blur and apply to the same people. Overall, however, it was a fun event for people to put forward members they felt contributed to the Gallente FW community.

I spoke with Mekhana about these awards. She said that the experience was very fun and rewarding for her. When I asked her what she found most difficult, she informed me that it was a bit of a struggle early on to get recognition and validation, but by the end several groups had fun discussing the outcomes. Mekhana also hopes that next year she can have donated prizes for those who are awarded, and perhaps diversify the kinds of awards so as to not just continue to give them to the same people. (Marcel could have an Obsidian Macaw for every year this runs if something doesn't give.)

The awards were executed well, especially considering it was mostly operated by one person. They served their purpose to highlight those among the Gallente that work hard, especially as they get ever closer to total Warzone control.

I have been playing the game *terribly* for right around two years. After a brief time in null, and longer stay in high, I have now entered into Gallente Faction Warfare and somehow landed a job as director of Aideron Robotics. I am still terrible.
