Isn't it illegal to ask fans to hype you on mmorpg.com?

    I haven't looked at the hype meter in at least a year, but probably longer.  When I just checked it now I saw some pretty funny things.

    Perpetuum Online, which is all but dead and Wildstar which has failcascaded from the day it launched are both hyped more than World of Tanks or World of Warcraft which both have millions and millions of satisfied players.

    So essentially... who cares?

    It's OK for a developer to ask their fans to vote for their game here. What's not OK is if they ask fans to vote a certain rating or to vote for some sort of reward. Just saying "Hey vote for us at MMORPG.com" is ok.

    Shroud of the Avatar developers did just that on Steam and got punished by community and potential buyers of their game, just as they should.

    If you are basing decisions of any kind off that hype meter then you are wrong. 
    MMORPG players are often like Hobbits: They don't like Adventures
