The games on this site are rated by the members. Most of us here are hardcore gamers. In some way or another we are all a bunch of people who love games, love mmos, and are in a constant search for the perfect one.
I know a ton of MMO casual gamers and not one of them know of this site. Just keep that in mind when reviewing the Ratings.
This is more in response to that Vanguard as #1
I myself thought vanguard was heading in the right direction. And is a great game for non casual gamers. So expect it to hit it big with a majority of the MMORPG.COM crowd.
