    Why do you like Guild Wars better? I'm not saying RuneScape is better... just curious?

    I like the simplicity of the interface of Runescape, any 6-year-old could get the hang of it.

    Why do you like Guild Wars in terms of interface more?

    You can move around better in Guild Wars and combat is better than Runescape.

    Yes, it was surprising since Guild Wars was undefeated and RuneScape had never won a single match before this year.

    However, it was a tie in the Review Directory. Take away the tiebreaker that was started this year and Guild Wars is still undefeated. Either way, you can still say that Guild Wars is undefeated in the Review Directory.

    At the same time, I would not say that it is a complete shock. Guild Wars may beat RuneScape in several areas like graphics, PvP, budget etc, but RS is still the most popular free MMORPG in the world.

    I hop RS wins. Why?

    1. Guild wars, you absolutely HAVE to play with other people. Personally, not everyone is like this, i prefer to do it by myself. But in GW eventually, you have to play with people

    2. No aggrivating skill crap. I cant tell you how stupid GW's skill stuff is. Its very annoying, its way too complex to figure out unless you have alot of time on your hands.

    3. RS is free

    Hate me, but, thats how i feel about it D:

    Nope your absolutely wrong... while it might be the most hated game on the internet it's far from the worst and it's the most popular free MMO ever made! So if it can be the most popular and most hated at the same time it must be doing something right to attract so many people.

    Honestly one thing I hated about this match was the graphics argument... RuneScape and Guild Wars are from two different worlds, graphics should not of been a factor because of it. RuneScape doesn't have the power to have as good as graphics as Guild Wars so saying it doesn't have as good of graphics is completely stupid. Now if you take two client games and compare them then yes rag all you want because it's an equal playing field... the other game might not have as good of graphics but that's the developers fault for what ever reason... money, time etc not because it's simple impossible to be that good!

    Wow, I figured GW would have won. Runescape is too slow and blah, the PVP sucks, the community is total crap and full of angry young'ins. Yeah, I have played it before and i wasn't ammused.
