That is not even true. I am a Pirate101 Fan and I was not paid any in-game stuff to vote. That's sad that you have to lie to smear a game's credibility.

GOTY, hmmm, surprised Wizard101 was not mentioned.... However, for those of you that have not tried Pirate101, you might be quite surprised at how innovative and fun this game really is. It has been very looked forward to and then finally released in October of this year.
I don't mind any game being nominated for GOTY, since it should be the best MMORPG game going, but some of you should try out some of these games before you cast that vote, instead of just voting on who you think will be most likely to win.
Pirate101 truly is the game of the year to me, it is the most innovative with new concepts, new story lines, and new fun. Everything you could want in an MMORPG all rolled into one.

Actually I do not have kids, I am an adult and I love playing Wizard101 and Pirate101. It's a new way of playing games without having to be a hard core gamer. Kingsisle was very creative when they thought up this new way of playing. I call myself a soft core gamer. Game makers keep forgetting about people like me. But Kingsisle did not.

Softcore and Hardcore.
Yes, Pirate101 is fun, but the voting here for P101 is getting way too much publicity.
I am not lying to anyone, KI the company itself of P101 is NOT giving any in-game items to vote.
But P101 isn't ready to win and doesn't deserve it, and that comes from me loving P101.

Why? You spam the vote with enough dummy accounts, you can accompish anything.
Go Kingsisle's Pirate101!
Everyone has there own opinion, so if they are voting for Pirate101, then its fine, its what there players think. They also try to make there games good for everyone. Just because You don't like it doesn't mean other people don't like it. Unfortunately This Poll was only for games that have came out in 2012, I wish Wizard101 was on there, I do like Pirate101, but Will always be a wizard!
Why all the Pirate101 bashing? Obviously the players of Pirate101 like their game enough to come and vote. And this is the Players' Choice Awards. Right?
I'm an avid P101 (and Wizard101) player. I've also had an MMORPG account for quite a long time but you won't find me on this site posting. I prefer to spend my time playing. And BTW I'm an adult. A mother of grown children and grandmother and I love both games. The very fact that KI has created games that appeal to players of all ages is the personification of innovative.
Originally posted by Rayshe Given that everyone i have seen that supports Pirate 101 has a total of 1-10 posts in their career, im callin bull on them actually legitimately voting.
So you are saying that those of us who spend our time by actually PLAYING our game, P101 (and other), instead of over here at MMORPG joining in gripefests on the forums are not legitimate voters?
Guess what? I've had my account here since December of last year (not as long some but only a day after your own) and this is my FIRST post. Which makes me legitimate and not someone who just "created an account to spam votes" Know what else? It doesn't matter. I am an avid PLAYER not COMMENTATOR.
Good Luck to all the games that were nominated. I truly hope that their fans are as enthusiastic for their favoirtes as I am for mine.
A lot of you are right, I DID make an account just to vote for Pirate101! But why would I do that? Because I am an adult married female (no young children, BTW) who is an avid gamer and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pirate101! I've played gamed ranging from console survival horror to WoW and after a while they all get to be same-old same-old, boring rehash/remake/spinoff off of another game. I started playing Pirate101 while it was still in beta, and I have been hooked ever since. The storylines are fresh and compelling, the gameplay is awesome, and really...flying pirate ships?! HOW COOL IS THAT? Maybe this was meant to be a kid's game, but me, my husband, and our nerdy 32-years-old best friend spend a lot of Saturdays shooting buffaloons and sky snakes.
OH, by the way, Kingsisle didn't give me anything in OR out of game to say this. But, yanno, if they wanted to name a character after me or something I would totally be cool with that! CALL ME KI! I love you! Call me!

Well, I really dont care what you think of me because I have a low post count. You live in your world and I live in mine.
P101 is a very innovative game. The customer base range from very young kids to grandparents. If that isnt a string case for innovation, we may have different ways of looking at things.
I decided to post because of the false claim that the customers were being paid to post. Thst person is a spoon just sirring the pot. I personally play. My daughter plays and I have a 5 year old son that likes to play. None of which were approached or given the idea that by voting they would receive any compensation in any form.
On a side note, I have played the debated about Guild Wars. I have played Wizard101 and Pirate101. I think both those games are better then Guild Wars. Thats just my opinion for the way I like to play. But if Im not mistaken, that's what polls are about.. opinions.
Had it gone the other way and Guild Wars2 won, so be it. It doesnt change my opinion or which program will be loading when I get to playing. Its just a snapshot. of people who took the time to actually vote.
Wow just wow...Pirate101 won for GOTY...that is really disheartening. I wouldnt mind even seeing Planetside 2 or TSW winning but Pirate101? Sigh.. sad.
Thank god GW2 won in innovative category though .
Looking forward to EQL and EQN.

Whats to say he didn't try the game. Maybe he tried the game and thinks it's a peice of crap. Just because you like that kind of game doesn't mean everyone else has to. You've shown us through your anti-GW2 campaign (yes the one that started with your very first post, and has continued with virtually ever other post you've made) that it's ok for a person to share his bias against a game, so what is the problem with Vaultar's post?
All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.
I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.
I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.
