In today's Letter from the Producer Q&A session, it was revealed that the first major patch for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be released on December 17th. The Q&A covers seven pages of topics ranging from dungeon parties, item costs and much more.
Q34: I am concerned that the MVP system will cause more player-to-player conflicts.
A34: We believe the players got the wrong idea of the system because we called it the MVP system. Therefore, we have decided to change it to the “MIP (Most Impressive Player)” system.

We wanted it to be a feature where players were able to thank each other.
