    It's possible:). It would be two free MMORPGs in the finals for the first time if Guild Wars wins here.

    It will be interesting I think. The upside of RuneScape making it to the finals is the fact that it is free and Guild Wars already defeated World of Warcraft in the finals of the first MMORPG Showdown.

    Hmm...

    I don't think there will be much of a competition, Guild Wars seems like it will win.

    I'll elaborate later, I'm in a rush right now.

    I'll take so many 10's for LoTRO and so many 0's from GW to see a LoTRO win.

    Yes you have to buy Guild Wars but it is FTP so it's considered a free MMORPG.

    Exactly and it's probably part of the reason Guild Wars is beating LoTRO by so much but far from the only one.

    Hmm... Just tried LOTRo, it was pretty amazing...

    The grinding was...I can't believe I'm saying this...fun...

    It was entertaining to see my character defeat something, plus the graphics on the game were far beyond anything I've ever seen.

    You can try LoTRO? I wanted to play it again without paying but the free trial system is down and has been for a while :(

    Yeah, I dunno, it says it was supposed to re-open after the Mines of Moria expansion, but it didn't...

    I relied on...uhm...other...sources for the 7-day free trial. And I only used, erm, the other...source for 7 days, don't worry ;)

    Jacobdj you are a very confused boy. The word 'free' means no monthly fees. It doesn't matter if you have to buy the game, it will still be classified as a free MMO if it has no monthly fees. GW only costs £5-10.

    I for one do not like Guild Warts. Its WAY overrated and I hope Runescape whoops up on it if GW wins again.
