    KI does this all the time.  I receive emails from them with a link to vote on different sites.  There are also several fan sites and KI's own site which do this as well.  This time I received an email from KI and was asked to vote for pirate 101 as game of the year.

    Still laughing at Guild World of WarCraft II being named as Most Innovative...
    "Hey guyse, auto-accepting quests is now the pinnacle of innovation in MMO's."

    Haven't laughed this much since TORcraft review.

    And here I though that the GWII hype has finally died down and people started to see that game for what it is - a WoW reskin with auto-complete quests, mediocre story and no real end-game. 

    For all seriousness, though, Secret World should have won The Most Innovative part.

    Wow... I read through the first 6 pages of butt-hurt replies and I'm a little shocked at how immature some of you are acting. This is a Player's Choice award and the Pirate 101 community came out in support of their game more than any other. Congrats to them for winning and all of you whiners get over yourselves. Your acting like 3 year olds.

     

    I'm also very happy to see Star Citizen winning the Rising Star award. This will be the game to watch over the next two years. I know I voted for it in two catagories but really didn't expect it to win either. Congrats RSI and Chris Roberts! As for the rest of the winners they were pretty much as I expected. Congrats to all that won. image

    Big blow to the GW2 and TSW folks, but hey, looks like we're not the only players who are enthusiastic about our games.  ;)

    That was the whole effort for. So people would check the game out!

    haha think you took that quote outta context a little, and by a little, I mean on a transatlantic airline.  But I do getcha, if all is shit, the least shit wins.  But P101 is not shit, is genuinely involved a lot of creative ideas, not cut/ paste.  In fact how it did not win most innovative is odd...

    I forgot for a moment that this was a player's choice award so the expression does not fly (no pun intended image) in this case.

    Pirate101 has been one of the most unique, well designed, well executed MMOs to come along in awhile. It actually has something different and it's fun. 

    a yo ho ho

  • ReignsonReignson Shelby, INPosts: 21Member

    Someone please explain to me how GW2 is innovative?   That tagline is the reason I bought the game months ago, but I failed to see any innovation during the 2 weeks I spent playing that bore fest.    

     

    Maybe the underwater elements were sort of unique I guess.  But that more of an environmental thing, as opposed to a gameplay system.

     

    Seriously, what system in GW2 hasn't been made/used before in another mmo first? 

  • evolver1972evolver1972 Port Orchard, WAPosts: 1,118Member

    I guess GW2 fans were too busy actually enjoying their favorite game to come here and vote.

     

    @Reignson - there are many threads on this site devoted to describing how GW2 is innovative.  Look them up.  Just because a similar system had been tried to some extent in another game doesn't mean its expansion and combination with other systems isn't innovative.

     

    We are talking innovation, not invention.  2 different things.

    You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

    Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

    just a few sites many more google is your friend....  This is a good site but thankfully you dont have a vote for us as game of the year on gw2 site to make the polls lopsided enjoy trogs frankly  in no way should a credilbe site continue to count a game that begs its players to vote in such a manner..... 100,000 votes is not the gaming world population.....

    Proof positive in your statement that you have limited knowledge of what is out there in the gaming world.  Further it proves your limited knowledge of what gw2 is but hey where the hell is mist of pandaria at on this list if you really wanna start trolling?
  • IIIcurrierIIIcurrier Kalispell, MTPosts: 88Member
    I can see how each game got these awards except guild wars, it doesn't seem innovative at all to me, besides the fact that you can chain ability with other players creating different effects, that is about this only thing that did that is " innovative".
  • Mors.MagneMors.Magne LondonPosts: 1,420Member
    There are serious morals and lessons to be learnt from this poll. It shows the power of 'something' when a little-known game can 'beat' the rest.
     
    (...And GW2 - a WoW clone - getting the most innovative award!! - I mean, WTF is going on there?!)
  • GoldenRheaGoldenRhea Christiansburg, VAPosts: 3Member
    I love Pirate 101 and the pvp is awesome I love doing pvp hand to hand and getting face to face with the person you're fighting it's great and battling ships is great the game over all is great :D
  • raeven63raeven63 San Diego, CAPosts: 1Member
    Never heard of Pirates 101/  I would say Far Cry 3, Guild War's 2,Dishonored and Assassin's Creed 3. Borderlands 2 was also good..and Diablo 3.
  • fearufearu Your mom's pantiesPosts: 142Member Uncommon

    Best game won. Seriously though, Guild Wars 2 is overhyped rubbish. The core design, removing the trinity, is absolute failure for dungons, which sadly is how you get the epic lootz skins which end-game is all about. On what it is, Pirate 101 is actually a pretty deep and well made game even if its not my cup of tea.

     

    PS. MMORPG.com please fix your autoloading comments, I dont want to have to sit here holding my page down key for 5 minutes until the comments stop loading so that I can add mine. Please add a button at the top somewhere that lets me directly add my comment.

    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.
     
     

    Well said. I don't play P101 and didn't vote for P101 (disclaimer my wife and I do play W101 with our kids). KingsIsle looks/sounds/is(?) a talented dev shop who are succeeding in making a game that their fans enjoy and support. What's the problem with that again? Nothing as far as I can see.

    Complaining about because like ^ said above "it's not a game you like" is silly or complaining about it because it's not "hardcore" is equally silly.

    They are successful.. Get over it and move on, or give it a try and find that you might like what they offer.

     

    Either way - congrats to KI/P101.
