    This has just proven that you know nothing of MMORPG's. In MMO's the word 'free' means that it is not pay by month. Guild Wars is not pay by month so it is a free MMO. I'm not being mean but learn about MMO's first.

    But I doubt Runescape will win :mad:

    Maybe not, but voting has gotten got closer against LotRO:).

    Anything is possible. RuneScape had no wins before this year and it defeated WoW last week.

    To be honest I don't really care, I don't play GW, LoTRO or runescape anymore. I'm just happy that WoW got beaten.

    I can't really decide between both of these great games, but I'm gonna go with LOTRO just to give it a fighting chance lol.

    Surprisingly, voting is still close right now. Everybody thinks Guild Wars will win and go on to face RuneScape in the finals, but its not a slam dunk yet.

    Call me weird if you want guys but I am getting a bit twitchy due to people voting 0 in both games! Why not put a proper score?

    Some people just want one game to win a lot more than the other. Extreme scores like 0 and 10 tend to help accomplish that. Granted, its not an exact science but that is where the battle comes in.

    i still hate the fact how people give 0's to a good game that doesn't deserve a 0.

    Free in the MMO world does not mean completely free it means FTP(Free to Play)... With that said yes you have to buy Guild Wars but it's FTP after that meaning it's a free MMO.

    It makes it a little more fun than just 1 vote, but we may do it different next year. We might end up using a combination of reviews and regular votes for MMORPG Showdown 4. Now, back to Guild Wars vs. Lord of the Rings Online :).

    Ok heres my own little GW vs LoTRO

    Graphics/sound - Pretty close, but for attack animation you gotta go with LoTRO

    Gameplay - Again close, but GW has the edge.

    Community - Guild wars by far.

    Plot/Storyline - LoTRO, I mean comon one of the biggest books in history.

    General appeal - LoTRO attracts all those LoTR fans and a hefty amount of mainstream appeal. But guild wars is free, end of story.

    GW wins 3-2 but it could really go either way.

    An easy match just turned into an interesting one. The voting is now within one point.

    That is very true. It doesn't matter to me any more, just go with the flow.
