    MU Legend? Surprised to see such a strong showing. Interesting.

    Never heard of it  is it an Rpg?

    Actually Pantheon is quite popular in this forums, you can see that from the posts and the forum activity in its own section.

    Don't you think there is something fishy about MU votes?

    PANTHEON! Anyone (especially old schoolers) who plays MMO's needs to check out pantheonmmo.com - read the tenets in the forum and you'll understand why there is still hope for the genre.

    Many on this list will not even be out in 2017.



    My vote is for Bless. I have already played it quite a bit and it is amazing. I love it.



    @Kilsin Not sure why the LOL on Bless Online. Just because it was not your game? Hmmm.
    I'm Korean so I tend to favor my country's games. Not sure what is lol about that.

    To each their own opinions...that's how it works methinks.

    seems odd how quickly it jumped from almost nothing to 2nd place and then caught up quickly again for first. It could just be a dedicated community or some horrible bot program. Time will tell I guess :D

    Lol vibrating breasts?  That for real?  Gee mine don't do that..must be magic hehehe Sorry watched some of the video for Mu.

    Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen 25.2% and MU Legend 27.9% ?? Wondering how much money they have paid you to vote for these two. If it's your free opinion, then this site and commnuity on it is a damn huge cancer.

    Sounds fishier to me than an all you can eat Odorigui buffet. just saying  :p

    Ack! Mu won.

    But to be fair although you may point to Pantheon forums as being more active that does not necessarily translates to more fans. If the game folk have directed their fan base to this site they can legitimately vote for the game without really participating in the game's forums here.

    I am also betting some of the new accounts that mention Pantheon in this thread are the alts of some of its more fervent  fan base. Seems fishy to me that they are making a point to post a line or two to seem less suspicious.

    The Pantheon forums has a few ardent fans who post thread after thread ad nauseum so the activity there does not mean it has a larger fan base than Mu. 

    However it is good that @BillMurphy is on the case.

    In the past I would occasionally visit this site, but never registered.  The only reason I registered here was to vote for Pantheon.
  • suckm3suckm3 Member UncommonPosts: 187
    More I meant that all of these mentioned "new" MMO;s are just pure shit. There is not a single MMO that it should be above 20% anyway. Well, maybe only Lineage Eternal is worth the time.

    How is it working ? pantheon had 25.4% and then it went down to 25.2% ? I'd appreciate if someone explain it to me.
    And if you ask me this list is very weird ... some of the games are alrdy in early access or beta , doesn't seem like they fit here.
    and MU Legend ? if that be true , it would hit top of Hype list on your own website...all in all - this looks fake to me.

    That is because it is 100 % so when the votes of another game go up the pie is constant so the one which has more votes will then get a larger percentage, it is not based on the number  but on the total and the constant pie.

    Hmmmm, i wasnt expecting that MU Legend will take the lead... I see that there are a lot of comments related to pantheon but we cant tell if these commenters are actual players/fans.

    So as many of you know I was tracking the progress of the votes since Sunday at around 7PM EST. This is when I had first noticed some very major things happening with the polls.

    1. MU's score was going up 0.1% every 10 minutes (On the dot), while no other score at the time was moving, including Pantheon or Camelot, Revelation, any of the other top scoring games. 

    2. The intervals were so accurate, I could time to the second when the next percentage point would rise, with only a small window of 30 minutes the entire night where it didnt rise at all.

    3. Now this could just be how the poll's algorithm calculates its percentages, its possible that it wont report anything more than a .1 percentage gain at any given time. Still for the 12 hours I was recording the votes (with images btw) MU did no stop trending up in the polls.

    4. Flash Forward two days later, MU did not stop rising once in two days. Pantheon sunk below MU twice in that time frame, once at 20% on Monday morning and then again today when it was finally overtaken completely at around the 25% mark. 

    I want to show you all a comparison image: 
    On the left is Sunday at 9:45PM EST. On the right is today at 3:50PM EST



    5. Whats irked me about this whole thing is that as you can see between the two days of voting, every other score for every other game that isnt Pantheon or MU has dropped by a minimum of 2%. Think about it like this, essentially for every other games average to lower this drastically, there must be another game skewing the averages of the pie to make the pool even smaller.

    MU and Pantheon are basically "Inflating" the averages of the pie because they have accrued so many more votes in the past few days. Now think about this. Pantheon on Sunday at 9:45PM was at 20%, so to finish 5% above where it started is pretty extraordinary considering, it means it was gaining more on average within those two days than it originally did to reach the point where the inflation took place, it basically "Rode the wave".

    Now look at MU, over 10% gained on average, surpassing pantheons original total by 7% in two days. Simply speaking, it never stopped growing. It forced every other average of the pie down so much to the point that a 5% gain on average over two days from pantheon was still "not enough" to stop the monster growth of MU Legend.

    So now either MU has the most aggressive social media campaign ever targeted at this vote for past several days, or there might be other conclusions to draw here.

    Just an FYI, we will be scrubbing the data manually at the end of the poll to make sure no cheating occurred. If it did, and that cheater was the winner, the next-in-line who did not cheat will win the award. @Meddle will be doing the scrubbing himself.
    You mean Crowfall could be the winner? :)

    You also said "many on this list will not even be out in 2017." Don't you think it's possible that he was laughing about that statement (because it's true), rather than your preference for Bless?

    Nobody is out to get you.
