We ogres take our showdowns very seriously, so when it came time for MMORPGs to throw down the gauntlet, we gathered them up a bunch of the likely candidates, put them in a giant burning circle of fire, and only the strongest survived. Bruised, beaten, and bloody the survivors crawled out of the circle of fire, only to find themselves thrust into a tournament from which only one can prevail!

We call this the MMORPG Showdown—now in its 7th iteration.

Without further ado, here’s out contestants: Guild Wars 2, World of Warcraft, RuneScape, TERA, Drakensang, StarWars: The Old Republic, Rusty Hearts, Crystal Saga, APB Reloaded, Lord of the Rings Online, DC Universe Online, Vindictus, Rift, Neverwinter, Dragon Nest, and Dungeons and Dragons Online.

The first round match is already underway pitting TERA against World of Warcraft.

Do not worry, no MMORPGs will be actually harmed in this event–although some egos may be deflated during the proceeding.

Go forth, get your votes in!
