they're getting people on funcom's forum to make accounts via proxy to vote up tsw and vote down gw2. think it'll get bugs fixed and add a full staff the funcom? probably not.

It also can just be a good game :/

When you make claims like that, please prove it.

Keep in mind, there are lots of haters on TSW as well (more haters for GW2 on the forums, though).

Just proof that noone should ever trust any review numbers.

 

For me the top three should be:  Rift, Defiance, and WoW...but everyone on this site seems to hate all 3 of those lol.  It's good to be hated I guess :)

Yea! Congrats to TSW for being on top of the Released Game List on a website that has clearly shown evidence of people abusing said system and pushing or dropping games up and down said list according to their wishes.

Isn't that EXACTLY what a polling of opinions is supposed to do?

 

Of course, that doesn't mean people won't just vote a '1' for a game that clearly deserves much better in a fair world in order to pump up another game they like... but hey, the world is not a fair place.

 If they were balanced opinions, sure. But anyone voting a 1 for GW2, WoW or SWTOR is obviously just a troll, even if you dont personally like the game, its obvious that they are above average in quality.

They aren't 1s, but they are also certainly not "above average" in quality...

How many MMOs on the list have you played? 90% of them wish they could even come close to the quality of those games. I mean, there are some really terrible MMOs around. Regardless of your personal feelings on the game, there is no way that any of those three are below average.

For instance, I hate Rift with a passion, it bores the hell out of me. But would I rate it below 70%? Probably not. Because there are a lot of games that are much much worse than it. Thats what being objective is all about. Unfortuntely most MMO gamers are not objective. One bad feature, or if it is the wrong type of game for them (themepark) and they will vote it as a 1 to prove a point that the game is not as good as their cool indie sandbox game. Regardless of the actual quality of the game involved.

At the same time they will upvote their choice of game to 10, even if it has glaring issues with polish or features.

Which pretty much goes back to the rating being rubbish and meaning nothing.

There have been a number of threads on the TSW forums specifically targetting MMORPG.com telling people to drum up business here:

http://forums.thesecretworld.com/showthread.php?t=67869&highlight=mmorpg.com&page=7

While noone explicitly states to upvote and downvote, they mention GW2 as the biggest threat. And since its unlikely that they will match the number of hits that GW2 is getting, the easiest thing would be to upvote and downvote.

Oh. I stand corrected :D

Kind of sad :(

I looked at that thread, and exactly 1 person is there worrying about the game list, and no one there is advocating getting into a fight with GW2 about it or downvoting GW2 -- to me, that's the sign of a mature community    I'd agree that the list is relatively meaningless -- your own opinion about the games you like and dislike is what really matters.   Who cares if TSW is up there now?  In a month it'll be something different.

What amazes me is the number of people who think they need to "save" others from playing a game they happen to dislike.  Take resposibility for yourself -- the rest of the world has plenty of information to make up their own mind.

I saw far more people in that thread (as well as the more recent thread on the TSW forums remarking on TSW's brief time as the highest rated game on this site) arguing against picking a pointless fight with GW2 and its players, or remarking on the general pointlessness and stupidity of game x vs. game y flamefests.

Yup, that is a credit to the TSW community :)

Sad that  few bad apples seem to spoil the bunch.

Btw, is the game always 30 bucks?
