     It doesn't seem very probable that several hundreds of fans of this game suddenly and at the same time decided to support their game in this vote .

    It also doesn't seem very probable that mmorpg.com admin didn't notice a sharp peak of several hundreds new account créations within only 2 days .
    Seems the Pantheon new account voters weren't able to sustain their campaign. The MU Legend new account voters are actually going to surpass them soon...

    But who are we to judge ? If the votes are there, then the game must be the most popular. The internet never lies ! :lol:

    It's likely that Webzen asked folks via social networking to come vote. Checking...

    Yep, they did on Facebook. That alone is more than enough to influence the vote closer to their favor unless the other teams do so as well.

    What's crucial is whether or not any one offered rewards votes. That would invalidate their entry.

    Clever of them. xD

    My interest in pretty much all of these has waned over the past few months.

    CoE devs have no idea what they're doing.
    Crowfall is struggling to put together an enjoyable game and the devs are making lots of questionable choices.
    Revelation went from interesting to absolutely not after watching some friends play it on Twitch. What a horrible game.

    I have no idea what the 2 leaders even are. I've never heard of MU and Pantheon is below my radar at best.

    The challenge for the site is a goal of polls and contests is to draw new visitors who hopefully stick around and generate traffic and clicks.

    Not many sure ways to discern between legitimate new accounts and those owned by bots.

    Best option would be to secretly weight the votes wirh more credence being given to accounts with greater longevity or activity.

    Clearly my vote should count as 100 while Blue Turtle, Torval around 150. DMKano? 500 easy.

    How did MU online go from less than 1% to over 19% in the span of a couple days? Hardly any articles on it either.

    It's a mystery but I think @sludgebeard will get to the bottom of it sometime after he wakes up.

    How is MU Legion in second place? I've never even heard of that game before.

    So far only Pantheon. Even if its just the beginning of the 2017 alpha testing.
  • badger_7badger_7 Member UncommonPosts: 4
    Looking forward to Pantheon!
  • jonnybladesjonnyblades Member UncommonPosts: 1
    Pantheon Online has my vote, a true masterpiece, just watch a stream and see the difference from 90% other upcoming titles. The death penalty, required team coordination or fear of a wipe? What's not to like. Hardcore baby yeah!

    Seems to be the battle of new accounts Pantheon versus Mu.

    Yes but going up .1% roughly every ten minutes since last night? I would say this is worth investigating. 

    The polling could easily be compromised at this point and I think you all should check into it. A facebook post from two days ago doesnt rule anything out here.

    If it was a bulk number at one time that scenario would make sense, but I have been tracking the numbers since last night at 7PM EST and at nearly perfect intervals of 10 minutes the score for MU (and MU alone) has been consistently been going up.

    Someone stacked the deck, you can bet that is not representative of this site's readership.  Just another mediocre eastern game that has little difference from all the others.

    Been following Pantheon for a while now and I am anxiously awaiting a game that might try to revive that old school EQ feeling (with the exception of meditating to a full screen spell book!!).  But until that time I will spend time researching any other decent PvE MMO that is on the list.  Being burned by EQNext/Landmark it never hurts having eggs in multiple baskets.  :)

    MU Legend
    Cant freaking wait to re-live my childhood in this insane good looking game.
  • LutorinLutorin Member UncommonPosts: 10
    Just to be sure - if this MU game is able to send enough REAL people here to register and vote, then I have no problem with them to win . Whatever win may mean .
    However the speed and regularity with which it happened didn't really look like randomly arriving and registering human beings .
    I guess the admin must be looking at the registering data files right now :)

    My only arguments against this is that Pantheon is talked about constantly on this site. MU.... not so much ;)

    I just discovered Pantheon and had to vote for it. It is the real deal MMO. It will be huge , be there at the start or cry that you missed it while everybody tells awesome stories 5 years from now.
