    good question.

    I would like to know either how game became "trending game" here too.

    please let us know how it works.

    thanks

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    Number of forum posts, and hype meter, I think.

    There is some things in this forum i do not understand, this and also the games to be released. It looks messy.

     

    some of it says a date some not. Is it outdated?

    I don't see Guild Wars 2 up there, at least not today.  But yeah it's been up there a lot.  I never paid much attention to that little bar.  I'm not sure how it works either, maybe Bill or someone can enlighten us plebs.

    No one knows this?

    i think it's determined by each games forum hits.  so when someone creates a 'GW2 sucks because....' thread,  and it turns into a 15 page topic.  gw2 will trend and be the most popular becuase everyone is going to view it.

    You mean the one that says this?

    "* Results based on unique hits over previous [24 hours / 7 days / ... / etc. ]"

    Hits on articles, forum activity, weather...

    Ya, the GW2 bots are pretty good. Because I rarely see GW2 discussions...yet there are THOUSANDS or "unique" hits that magically propel GW2 to the top of the charts.
