    This is just a question, but has Lineage 2 ever even been considered to be added to the list? i havent really looked at MMO showdown 1 and 2, but i dont think it was in 3 or 4.

    I think that Martial Arts MMO's are severely underrepresented. I think that at least once, for one year, a martial arts MMO should be included, even if it lost to maplestory.

    On a side note, I'd like to recommend two MMORPGs:
    Lord of The Rings Online. Turbine has done amazing things with it.

    Runes of Magic. It may be a WoW clone, but for a free game, it's even better than WoW in my books. As the company said, "We could've made it a pay-to-play game and it would have no doubt been very successful, but we didn't want to turn potential players away simply because of a monthly fee."

    Ok, a list of potential games for the tournament has been added. Several of those like Lord of the Rings, Darkfall, and Runes of Magic will be added soon. We may have to add a poll towards the end since there are so many good possibilities:).

    Age of Conan and Warhammer have both been added to the potential list. Both lost to WoW last year, but still did well.

    CrimeCraft is more of an MMO shooter than a MMORPG.

    Crimecraft reminds me of Fury. That was a waste of $50!

    Wizard101 is my favorite (though I don't like the new crafting). The game is funny with easy controls. The game is played by all ages. There is no blood and guts. Costumes are equal between genders: Female wizards have as much clothes on as the male wizards. It is beyond ridiculous (in some games) to see my female character in a thong and high heels running through snow drifts and I look over and see a male character in heavy armor, fur padding, and boots.

    Why I like Wizard101 so much? Some people like Monopoly and some people never will. I never will and its because I just want to play a game without a lot of thinking (strategy). Recently, I have played a lot of new beta games. I don't like to figure out skills points or when and how to enhance a weapon. I just want to play a game and be amazed with the graphics and the story. With Wizard101, you can play the game without strategy or to PVP you can enhance your character.

    Wizard 101 has been added to the potential list and Aion has officially been entered into the tournament. Aion will take part in the last match of the first round to give everybody plenty of time to play it.
