    At the very least, the WoW fans haven't sunk as low as to spam WoW forums with this battle.

    Same can't really be said to Runescape.

    Well what is happening most of the hardcore WoW players are more active in Blizzards official forums. This is a MMO forum for all MMO's. So 99% of the time the WoW players only join forums like this as a back up forum to goto when the official one is down. I use to play WoW and Runescape for a little bit. I am still going for WoW.

    And official forums relating to a certain game, you rarely ever see a MMO battle. Posting a MMO battle in one games official forum will only leave to being flammed by other members of that particular forum. Tis why no one makes threads on offical forums of a different game.

    I was almost tempted to go post a link to this on the WoW forums, but I didn't give in... Unlike whatever Runescape fan went to the Runescape forums.

    LMAO post it in the Official Blizzard WoW Forums. If you do not get Flammed or Bannned from the Post. I bet the results will be significantly different.

    Oh and BTW I think you need to have an active WoW account for the official forums. I would but my account is canceled.

    It all depends on who votes and how they vote. Runescape fans seem to do it the best with the 0s and 10s:p. Didn't Champions and AoC post in their forums but lost?

    What I really want to know is which game has more players. Does anybody know?

    I would say WoW has more around 11 million, and Runescape has a few hundred thousand. Most people shy away games the require monthly subscriptions, like WoW.

    The real question is Which games has more active players? Runescape may have a few hundred thousand people registered, as well as WoW with there 11 mill subscribers, But what game has more active players on at all times?

    I thought Runescape was in the record book for having the most subscribers of any free MMORPG?

    I'm pretty sure it is buzz, but thats for free MMORPG's, WoW has 11 Million people subscribing, so it's safe to assume they're fairly active when they're paying that much.

    Well, I know that WoW is the most popular MMORPG in the world, so most likely, WoW has the largest gaming population.

    Here are the numbers

    -170Mil Acc. created since Runescape started
    -About 10Mil active player (Monthly Based)
    -1,5-2M member
    -The few hundred thousand,you say, are the one that play at the same time.
    -There are 50k- 180k player that play at the same time, and it keeps changing.
    The average is about 100k Player.
