It isn't a positive or a negative really. Underdog of the week goes to the flash that has the largest differnce between Vote Score (0.00/5.00 thing) and Review score (0.00/10.00 Thing)

So if your vote score is like 1.39 and your Review score is 9.94 you would probablly get underdog of the week because the difference is so large.

X-Anthrax43 is kinda right ... but in your case it's pretty odd as you got a high score on both. Usually underdog of the week is a bad award though ... but you shouldn't have got this one, it's a kind of bug actually. If I was you I'd keep it as it's really weird, but if it annoys you to have that "negative" award, you might PM Wade about it and I'm pretty sure he'll remove it for you. Congrats for the daily first award by the way

Granted, it's days later so the scores may have changed, but right now your entry has this score:
Score 3.78/5.00 (Explanation)

And this review average:
Avg 9.05/10.00

That is an awesome review average, and a pretty good score. But I think that while your score was high enough to win the daily feature for 6/3... by the end of the NG week on 6/6... your score had lowered a bit, while your review scores kept being high. And keep in mind that a vote score of 3.78 equates to a review score of only 7.56...

So your 9,05 review average >>>> 7.56 vote score (adjusted) = underdog of the week.

That's a good award to have if you EARN it the right way. As opposed to cheating to get it, as many have done in the past. So wear it with pride, IMO.

Well, that flash does have a high score and won underdog but it's not the first time that has happend, some of the flash with low scores don't usually reach 30 reviews unless crews mass review them. Had the current Review Crew Pick not have gotten 30 reviews, a diffrent flash would be there and the Underdog would still probably be the current flash just because it had the larger diffrence between score and review average.

I wouldn't say it was a bad thing, somtimes it's nice to watch and other times not so nice because people have cheated for it.

Hum, I guess I should just shut up when I don't know what I'm talking about. I really thought it usually happened around a much larger gap between both. Anyway, thanks for the sharing.

I think that Underdog of the Week is a positive award, like any other awards (except Turd of the Week, of course :P) It shows that even though you haven't gained the popularity of some artists that force their scores through the roof, and that maybe you aren't perfect at Flash yet, you still have what it takes to create a good movie, that people who will care (reviewers) will enjoy. Congrats!!!

It probably does usually involve a greater gap, man. But every week is different and every week has a buncha new flashes with new scores, eh? There's bound to be a record "low gap" between the flash vote and the review score on the week's Underdog winner... just as there's bound to be a record "high gap," as well. I wonder how big the high gap record is...

With cheaters it's probably been like 7.50. (with the flash score doubled, of course)

As it turns out i won it because people who voted and didn't comment took my obviously joke game seriously when people who wrote reviews got the joke.
Like i swear it literally said joke in the title of the game i give up.

Does this award even exist anymore, now that review scores and popular vote merged?

It does still exist since people don't have to review when they vote and you can always see the winner under the portal section.
