    You know gw2 doesn't have to win everything. RPS picked farcry3 as goty with ps2 top ranked mmo and tsw 2nd ranked mmo, gw2 made the list though.

    I am glad GW2 didn't win. It is the single most unfun MMO I have played. My GoTY would be TSW. It may be too different for some but those investigation missions are epic. Once I get to the gear grid of a end game I will be done this the game though.

     

    Of Couse this is just my opinon

    You're full of it. Not saying GW2 is a bad game. Just compare it to GW1, then play WoW and tell me that's not the direction they were going. They as much admitted it themselves when development began.

    A few hardcore players liking the game so much that they don't consider it a grind, versus the mechanic lending itself to players repeatedly running the same dungeons over and over again to GRIND tokens to buy gear are two different things.

    When there's a Dragonquest and/or Final Fantasy (tactics) MMO that is a better game than Pirates, I think you'll have a point.

    Asking you to be objective is probably a waste of time. Sorry "your" game lost.

    Who nominated Pirate 101? Did players nominate the games or did MMORPG.com staff pick them?

    Did the devs at Pirate 101 post something asking their fans to vote for this?  

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    This absolutely ridiculous, Pirate101 wins game of the year? I’m not convince, how much did KingsIsle pay to get that?

    That company is a joke, they don’t respect other cultures and they don’t care about their players.  

    Pirate101 doesn’t even close to the quality of Guild Wars 2.

    Disregarding the last comment you made, this is a poll by the players.  The community of that game got together and all voted on the game they enjoyed playing.

    It's my assumption that there was a tweet or something by the company asking for them to vote as it seems an impossible choice when against mainstream MMOs.

    That is not to say that games that aren't mainstream can't be GotY material, but simply it's almost impossible for a fan vote to do such if the company didn't step in in some way and ask their fans to vote.

    Edit:  It may also be a case that people saw their game wasn't going to win, but didn't want GW2 to win either.  Naturally that would mean voting the next up in bulk just for the laugh.  This is something that my friends from WoW (and a few from GW1) did and they tried to talk others into doing so as well as a joke.

    This is pretty rude, how about you actually try out Wizard101, or Pirate101 before calling the company a joke. You obviously know nothing about KI since they do respect other cultures.. they have wizard101 in china and other countries currently. They do care about the players and ask us our opinions on things they add to the game.

    Guild Wars 1 was released in 2005 and had 7 years to create GW2.

    Wizard101 was released in 2008 and had 4 years to create P101.

    GW had almost x2 more time to "create GW2" than Kingsisle had to "create P101".

    The bottom line is, our community obviously cared about this awards more than GW2. Sorry! :)

    It's called giving free stuff if you vote for our game. Eh.

    Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
    .........
    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.
    .........
    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

    Congrats, Pirate 101! I was certain it would win most innovative rather than the overall best, but great nonetheless.

    If you actually knew how to read before raging about your game losing, you would see that Bill stated that all of the games on the poll did not give out in-game items for voting.

    I have to admit that it brings me a smile that GW2 did not win. I'm not happy it lost because I think it is the most boring "mmo" I have ever played, its because of the insufferable fanboys of GW2. If this chases a few of them away, good riddence.

    I'm going to go try Pirates101 now just to show my appreciation.
  • hikaru77hikaru77 buenos airesPosts: 1,035Member Uncommon
    GW2 defeted by Pirate101. I know it mean nothing, and is just by 0.5%, still, Pirate 101 just LoL.  
  • HokieHokie Vancouver Wa.Posts: 1,063Member Uncommon

    Why are so many people acting butt-hurt? Do you really need a poll to validate your personal choices?

    LOL

     

    Gratz to the winners.

    I think if the poles are so distorted with reality of the market , it must be the player base itself that is ruining our games.

    reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

  • Dren_UtogiDren_Utogi OuterSpacePosts: 1,714Member Uncommon
    there is no more the 25k pirate 101 in this hemisphere.

    reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

    KingsIsle ruined the Quetzals into something so fake as a mythical snakes. I explain multiple times that Quetzals are bird species similar to Owls, Hawks and Eagles. Quetzals are also part of the Mayan culture and National symbol of Guatemala. 

    Yet they haven't done anything to fix their mistake...

    Do they really care about other cultures and their players? Absolutely NOT.

    As a player of both Wizard101 and Pirate101 I have found KingIsle to be a fantastic, helpful company that strives to please its fanbase. They are quick to answer questions in the forum and will be as helpful as they can and provide fans with various updates for new items and worlds, and will show the development as the game worlds are expanded and created. This isn't me being a fanboy; this is me observing a truly good company and game.

    They don't deserve crap.

    Excuse me but any game company can create something in their game that doesn't have to be 100% similiar to history in the real world. If you ever find a game like that please go ahead and tell me. If you are going to let something like that upset you and make you rage about the game then obviously its not the game for you. Have a nice day!

    THis is ther second time this company has done this, the also did on the front page with most anticipated game leading guild wars before its release by over 100k votes, as user of this site we have no say cause money talks.

    It is called people choice award not critics award. More Pirate 101 fans voted than GW2 fans. Grow up, stop crying and deal with it.

     If GW2 had won you wouldn't have blamed mmorpg.com for sellign out? nope because that is your favorite MMO.

    Did any other gaming site even nominate Pirates101 for anything?

    I love how it's a Players' Poll... yet people still immediately jump to the "zomg paid-off!" when they don't agree with the results.

    There's being a sore-loser... then there's just being flat out deluded and paranoid.

    Or, you know... maybe your paranoia isn't warranted and the Pirate101 fans simply had a better showing than fans of those other games?

     

    My god are there some bitter sore losers around here.

     

    I didn't vote for Pirate101 either, but for crying out loud... I can accept that the one I chose didn't win the category. What baffles me is how "personally offended" or "outraged" some people act over the whole thing. Is anything in your lives going to change because a game you don't like won, or because the game you voted for didn't? I mean really?

     

    Talk about first world problems.

     
     
    Get some perspective, folks.
