    This is the first match in the semi-finals of MMORPG Showdown 3. Although the match will be officially be decided in the Review Directory, this forum battle will be for extra comments and will serve as a tie breaker if one is needed for the match.

    I like this match....You have the world's biggest pay MMORPG against the world's biggest free MMORPG! WoW is also the world's biggest MMORPG. WoW and RS have both improved over the past year. I choose WoW because I play it more but either game could win.

    I'm gunna go with Runescape.

    Despite the still-poor graphics, the fact that you can play it anywhere is a plus.

    Also, if you can look beyond the graphics, you will see that it is the deepest MMORPG ever created, with more stuff than you can do in WoW. A lot more.

    Do graphics take away from the gameplay or how fun it is? No. I'd rather have gameplay than graphics.

    I get the gameplay > graphics but how do you mean RuneScape is deeper than WoW? I mean what are some of the things that you can do in RS but not in WoW? I wouldn't think there would be THAT many.

    Let's see, I mean, can you build a house in WoW?

    Can you chop down trees in WoW?

    Can you go to a stock-market esque place which changes as needs for items go up or down?

    Can you build a massive bonfire in WoW?

    Go try Runescape, it's actually quite fun.

    Can you cut down trees in WoW... no, can you make fire's in WoW... I think not, Can you steal from random NPC... no... I could go on but it would take to long.

    Also the quest in RuneScape are like nothing any other game has. WoW's quest come no where near as in depth as RuneScapes Quest. For example have you ever done a quest in WoW where part of it you bribe a Snake Charmer to give you a sheet of music and a charming device that you then play to lead a bunch of rats off a dock into some water? I think not.

    I vote RuneScape... but will probably give both games about the same rating.

    although runsecape is no push over I just don't think its in the same league as wow, free or not. wow is the game that made mmorpgs more popular. runescape has done that some too but not on the same scale.

    am i the only one here who thinks that WoW vs LoTRO and GW vs RS would have been a more appropriate match up?

    bah, either way, i enjoy both games but for entirely different reasons that leave them completely incomparable...
    10/10 for both IMO

    and therefor i will refrain from voting >.<

    Well, neither, but I guess RuneScape because of the vast improvements it's made, while WoW is horrible all around. ^.^

    Guild Wars versus RuneScape could be interesting too. Maybe it will happen in the finals.

    The current pairings make sure that last year's final is not repeated. Lord of the Rings Online beat WoW last year and then Guild Wars beat Lord of the Rings Online.

    World of Warcraft versus Runescape appears to be somewhat close in regular voting so far.
