Both TSW and Darkfall don't even remotely deserve to be on top. Everyone satisfied?

so that means to me that the tsw fanboys are atm more active than the other ones.

Does it matter? Why can't someone just enjoy a game without trying to prove that all others are inadequate. You know you ARE allowed to like multiple games in the same genre -_-

 

Are there people on this site that probably gave TSW or GW2 a 0-2 out of 10? You betcha. These individuals have some personal issues, imo. They literally can not enjoy the games they like unless they "prove" that all other games suck.

 

Don't be that guy.

 

 The game was so awesome that it almost put the company out of business......They had to fire half their employees and go through a fire sale jsut to stay in business.....Alot of people thought the game sucked.

And how exactly is quality related to popularity? They are rather mutually exclusive.

I'm not sure if the game should be in the number one spot, it definitely deserves to be in the top five. I don't quite understand the heavy dislike of the game -there's quite a bit the game does right , and quite frankly people on this site are WAY to caught up on the themepark vs sandbox angle.

You've been bashing TSW tirelessly for 10 months already. This kind of dedication deserves credit but maybe it's tim to move on?

I'm surprised pirate 101 isn't at the top.

 

Didn't it win MMO of the year by the majority last year? Thought it's rating would go up as well.

I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

nah, whatever is closest to GW2 is what people will vote on the most. so for released titles it was TSW. more people probably voted for it than ever bought it(not hard to believe lol). since the devs of Pirate advertised the contest in game it was closest for te MMO of the year, thus what most of these trolls voted for.

Well to be honest I knew that, it's just fun to mention or get people to mention that lol.

When people realize they can like more than one MMO without hurting any other MMOs...their minds will explode.

TSW dropped .04 points while I was sleeping, so it seems that a bunch of TSW haters came in and gave it a bunch of 1s. On the plus side, TSW is back on the 'most popular' list because of unique hits. Go Haters! Woo!

...more like the whole list itself settled. this happens every time there's a new game. you TSW fans just got happy over nothing, a fleeting moment of grace caused by shifting algorithms, lol! the games are ranked relative to eachother, which is why every other game also fell...

This kind of talk is beyond pointless...

It's never enough for someone to be happy with what they have...they must take away from the enjoyment of others.

 

THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!

Exactly lol.  Like who looks at those ratings as an indicator of anything?

Telling the truth (and what Theo said there is completely true ) , is hardly "bashing". Rainbows and lollipops can be found on the heavily moderated official forums if you need them, though.

I think most people have been pretty fair about the game, and have stated things they liked and disliked.  Call them "rainbows and butterflies" if you want, but I think most people have said:

PROs

  • Great atmosphere
  • Great PVE and questing
  • Level-free/class-free build system
  • Great/challenging dungeons
  • Investigation and sabotage missions
CONs
  • Average/poor combat animations
  • PvP needs work
  • Endgame grinding
  • Content quantity
UP FOR DEBATE:
  • Somewhat "solo-centric"
  • Character models and options
 
Now people will weight those differently and give it a good or bad review based on those things, and yeah people will need to live with people who like and dislike the game.  Peripheral noise about Funcom "the business" has no relevance to the game itself.

The best way to get a game to drop in the ratings is to start a thread about how high the game is in the ratings.
