It’s time to fill out your bracket – no, not for basketball, for video games! And with this one, you’ll get to pick the winners!

We’ve selected and seeded 64 of the top free-to-play games in existence and need you to let us know which is the best. Several times a week, we’ll open up voting for a bloc of match-ups, leaving it up to you, the MMOBomb.com community to determine who moves on to glory and who is relegated to the digital scrap heap.

The games in our brackets were selected and seeded based on their relative popularity and activity level. We intentionally left off games that have shut down or that have seen minimal support by the developers recently (like Tribes: Ascend) or are in the process of shutting down (Free Realms was on the list when we conceived of it in mid-January – oops) and while we do have a few games on the list that are technically in beta (like SMITE and Hearthstone), we aren’t including games that aren’t widely available for free yet (sorry EverQuest Next Landmark – maybe next year!).

And if you don’t like where your game is seeded? Vote for it! It’s not where you start, but where you finish that matters. I think John Wooden said that…

    If Mabinogi is using bots here, they’re getting terrible numbers from them. They would do MUCH better by voting manually.

    I got a theory about the folks running these polls. They said;
    “We’ll be carefully monitoring the IP traffic on this one, as well as the above two polls”.

    Why didn’t they just simply check the log from the previous poll and parse out the repeats?
    I bet it’s because they weren’t logging it; there are NO logs of the previous polls. If this is the case, then that would indicate just how professional they are, wouldn’t it?

      well i think they actually dont care if RO bots, as long as RO wins they wont poll lock/reset or simplu disqualify. Fun thing is, in last poll mabi had 15000 something votes and RO had around 10000 votes. In this one RO is the one who has around 15000 votes but they wont call it cheating now. Mabi players decided to go legit while RO players decided to cheat to the max. Even if its just one botter the results have changed by a lot.

      • Unyu on March 22, 2014

        Are you suggesting Mabi isn’t botting? Because if you were, then you’d be blind. Mabi is botting just as hard as RO is. Or have you not logged in to mabi recently and seen players teaching others how to cheat the voting system?

          mabinogi isnt because weve been told to stop botting. everyone including myself has been spreading the word about voting while adding how you can only have a small amount of votes per place.

          • LobsterFiend on March 22, 2014

            Both sides are cheating I can guarantee that. In a contest to cheat however, the last poll shows that Mabinogi can curb stomp RO in a botting contest with their 40/60 result. However, it seems that Mabi has a bit more restraint with botting since they’re losing now while RO is going all out.

          • Unyu on March 23, 2014

            @LobsterFiend

            I dunno about Mabi being restrained now since 40% of 51k is a lot more than their 60% of 30k in the before reset poll, but you do make a lot of good points people tend to skip over. I mean seriously, 50k votes while the other games have barely 10k should raise a hell of a lot of red flags on both sides.

          I also did not know, and found out when I went to check the results. The post on Mabinogi’s site only shows that the event is happening and makes no reference to the reset. Also because they are updating a post from when the event began, the post date does not show any indicators of a poll reset.

    Assuming there is a bot voting for R.O. (and maybe there isn’t, maybe it just worked out this way) but assuming there is, those folks who would otherwise vote for Mabinogi should still do so. If there is cheating going on by one side, and if they can detect it, they may simply remove all of that persons votes and take the totals then. If Mabinogi voters get discouraged and stop voting then the “honest” votes for R.O may carry the day.

    I would think that these polls create their own logs on their servers indicating vote, time, and I.P. address of voter. It would be a simple matter to have software parse the log to remove the dishonest votes. In fact they could’ve done it for the previous poll attempt.

    I don’t know if they call this a fair play but look at this, the moment they see mabi players cheating they close and reset the poll. In the new poll RO players cheat and they just turn a blind eye like nothing is happening. Seems like this site only wanted for RO to win this tourney D:

    Well I think that says it all. What’s on trial now is the integrity of those folks conducting this poll. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt that perhaps they were at home and not monitoring this and that when they get into work they can see if any cheating was happening.

    It seems to me if “both” side were in fact cheating and not just one, then their numbers gained over the interval would be similar, Clearly they are not; they are completely one sided.

  16. It is obvious that there will be no end to this cheating accusation from both sides. I’m all for Mabinogi, but I personally think it’s best for both games to be disqualified and be done with it. No matter who “wins,” there will still be kids ranting nonstop. Both RO and Mabi had a second opportunity to prove they truly are a great community, but some people decided to screw it up.

  17. Unknown on March 22, 2014

    And there they are going at it again, RO sure does like to cheat, NOT A SINGLE time they went beyond 3K vote TOTAL during this poll AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN they can get 10K+ votes ? And then they pretend Mabinogi is the cheater… Unlike RO mabinogi EACH time went beyond 10K votes. Please be serious neither of the communities can seriously pretend that RO is looking legit right now, not while knowing how many votes they got during this whole poll and I did watch the amount of votes EVERY candidates were getting during each step, such a lack of fairness and honesty from RO, that’s utterly desappointing from a community supposed to be older.

      Despite the fact that only iro voted before and europe only found out about this poll last thursday, same goes for pRO, jRO etc. who just got informed recently.

      You want to say it is completly unrealistic to get more votes when japan, phillipines, whole europe and some more countrys around the world started voting just now?

      I don’t say that noone is cheating, I rather think both sides are and should be DQed. But referring to your comment, you seem to be one of those Mabi players who want that bonus offered by the server admins. I can understand that you want that bonus stuff but don’t get blinded by such promises and look at the facts.

        The facts ? The facts I exposed yes, the ones proving that RO has an abnormal amount of votes compared to before and mabinogi on the other hand has the same amount. Which one look the most legitimate ? Don’t bother I know the answer. You guys are lucky that mabiKR and JP are not going at it. You guys are just tarnishing our names with your petty cheats.

          • Unyu on March 23, 2014

            @Evidence

            If you saw the before reset poll, you’d notice Mabi was beating RO, despite people claiming RO was botting. Now if RO was botting, the only realistic way Mabi would beat it was to bot harder. Because let’s face it, RO’s population is so vastly larger than Mabinogi’s.

            Plus during this reset poll, RO has been reaching out to other areas for support, such as its foreign servers and some strange choices of websites. As far as I know, Mabinogi’s foreign servers haven’t even bothered getting involved. Now that’s not to say RO’s votes are all legit, but they’re not. But Mabi’s votes aren’t 100% legit either.

            Also think of the aftermath this match will cause. Both games are now known for botting, which will turn the remainder of this “competition” into a “who can bot harder” fight. The only way I can see this remaining as fair as possible, provided of course MMOBomb cares for fairness, is if both sides are DQ’d. It would send a message that if you bot, you lose.

    Do you read the comments?

    In majority, we have
    -little kiddy rage posts against RO
    -posts that both sides are cheating
    -posts that want both to be DQed

    I don’t really care who win this and I’d also prefere them both to be DQed since both sides seem to be cheating and no matter which one will win >this< round, the other fraction will most likely start cheating against them in the next round which kills of the whole vote.
    Well actually, concerning playerbase LoL will win. I don't play it, I don't even like it (tried it some time but it's not my type of game). But it has right now the biggest community of all mentioned games here. So simply quit this whole poll of cheating fractions on every side since those who cheat will also find out how to spoof MAC adresses, make LOL the winner of the never happened polls, call it a day and never bring up an unsecure poll like this again.

    Quit the accusation acts.
    More like we RO communities have noticed you guys tried to Disqualify us through voting for us with vote bots/macros/whatever it is. Whatever, when you did that, the votes would be void, we couldn’t care less.
    Crying out loud to convince the admins here that we are cheating won’t help it happen, MMOBOMB admins has enough brains to see what is going on.

    Be honest and remember at 19th March, you guys started using macros first.
    its recorded to be at 11 votes/minute.
    12 hours later, we took action because of your immaturity.
    3 hours later, you guys triples the macros into 33 votes/minute.
    The vote is void then as the reports has been sent to MMOBOMB.

    Rather that fighting cheaters with cheats, we decided to learn from our mistake unlike some immature communities.

    We posted so many threads on local communities, take this for an example.

    www.*****.co.id/thread/532858c1f7ca1796388b4652/voting-mmobomcom-ultimate-f2p-showdown/

    replace the stars with “kaskus”

    That’s a spot for Indonesian community, we rallied idRO & idPSRO players which is around 1.5m active users atm.

    We also visited Us, Ph ,and Jp threads to help us vote for this.

    We rallied our own flags through hard-work.
    Not through toxic acts.

        not to mention that the so called rally thread has only 277 views since like thursday XD not exactly an example of extreme community effort. And guys Relax we win this, we don’t have to cheat. Thanks to the premium poll monitoring features active this time they got the area location and mac addresses too. Its a bit suspicious if they have 6000 votes from the same small 1 family house at the end of the world which have different ip’s but come all from the same machine. We just win by default, and even if MMobomb were to ignore the cheating, we could just drop a note at the korean and japanese forums and slap on an extra 60-120k votes a few hours before closure. There is no need to resort to name calling here.

Mabi is no better but at least THEY hide their shame where you don’t… Your acting Majestic but honestly almost 3# now in under a hour that my friend is a bit sketchy i PLAY RO.. and know how small of a community it is and play Mabi and know how big it is mabi has 15k views on the mmobomb stuff i can understand them having the almost 20k votes right now but coming from an exped RO player whos played since 09. RO isnt that big as its vetoing is getting.. Not to mention YOU JUMPED 2% IN UNDER 30 MINS…. thats about almost 2k votes in 30 mins… please… Mabi and RO should BOTH be kicked from this and DQed.. becuase they both are cheating.. and its know they still are…

      With so many votes per second right when the poll started. We actually HAVE that many players. It may be hard for you to believe, but even one of our more empty servers have had full and nearly full channels lately. With the introduction of mabinogi to steam, Our community is just larger. Its preposterous for anyone to not see how hard ragnarok is botting. Not to mention all the people who play the private servers shouldn’t even be voting. You’re not playing the real game, and part of the quality of the real game is the cash shop and customer support offered by the actual company, Both of which PS players don’t deal with.
      Now at this point, Pirate101 players have probably joined in because theyre butthurt that they lost while cheating too. I’m not saying 100% mabinogi isn’t, but it’s extremely obvious somethings not right when overnight RO jumped from 34% to 58%. Especially considering how many votes they had in the first 2 rounds.

    • Jason on March 23, 2014

      A few of YOUR players suggested to mass vote for Mabi on one computer/IP to get US disqualified.

      Mabinogi has a LARGE community. Can’t say the same for RO, which is probably losing players by the day.

      • Unyu on March 23, 2014

        @Jason

        Both games are using the “Bot for the other game to get them DQ’d” tactic. It’s pretty sad to sink so low just to win. Also as far as overall community, RO is larger and more well-known. Though it is hard to tell with the rampant bots in RO, RO does have a more known name than Mabinogi for the people who don’t play either game but wanted to vote regardless.

            I mean seriously, you’re insulting someone over a contest, when what you should be doing is representing and trying to prove why your game is better, instead of wasting your efforts to make yourself look dumb by trying to insult a game you probably haven’t played in detail.

  38. Ziggins on March 22, 2014

    Anyone who believes Ragnarok should rightfully win against Mabinogi needs to take some things into account. What does ragnarok have that differs from any other Aeria game, Perfect world entertainment game, etc, etc. It’s a click once to attack, spam skill game. Anyone who says its not is really over analyzing the game.
    Mabinogi has too unique of a gameplay to be overlooked by people who play the MMO clones that populate 90% of the internet now. I’m not saying this just as a fan of mabinogi, but as simple fact. You can’t faceroll or macro your way through mabi like most other games. I played RO, RO2, and several other games, and nothing sticks out between them. The life skills aren’t even unique. They’re baby fed to you from lvl1.

    (0)
    • Rolland on March 22, 2014

      You definitely haven’t played up to the 2nd job of Ragnarok Online.

      Game-play changes a lot after 2nd job, you can no longer kill any mobs by just attack spamming everything.

      Fyi, to say that people are baby fed from lvl 1, I assume you are playing the “Renewal” server,
      on which basically translates to “No Challenge high PvP server”.

      This server is for players that has no time to spend, and wanted equipments and levels without any effort. The mobs are simpler, mob distribution are map based, and the quest are all cut down into simple hunting quests.

      Try out the “Classic” server, and you will be surprised what you can find in RO.

      Either way,
      There is no way you can kill a single mob with just simple attack spams above 2nd job.

      Each job is unique, but you didn’t know that did you?
      Proves you haven’t even played for more than a week.

      Yes, each job has 100% different experience, and as far as I know, there is no job that “Spams attack/skill” other than Thief & Assassin job, but even so, they still MUST utilize their escape abilities to prevent being killed as they are squishy yet closed ranged fighters.

      As for builds, every piece of equipment has its own advantage in RO,
      Not even the lowest Tier Jackets can be sold without thinking twice.

      you can even spend 99 intelligence and no strength on Swordmans, and still kill one of the strongest MVP (Boss monsters) (Amon-Ra) with the right choice of equipment. (No, you don’t even have to be a billionaire or highly leveled to do that, you just have to be smart.). Its all in the preparations he had. There is a video posted on that on youtube. Its all on calculations and strategy, you are kidding me to compare RO with “Perfect World” and etc.

      Can any of your game allows players to single-handedly kill MVPs with enough preparations?
      Usually MVP requires an entire party or a guild to fight, but with enough brain, you could SOLO anything. (There are over 3000 Mobs with unique card effects to engrave into your character’s equipments) (Choose the right combinations of equipment and cards, with brains, and experience of the boss’s behaviour, you can SOLO them ALL)

      There was a guy that create a blog to SOLO all MVPs of Ragnarok Online with a Knight, bosses which usually requires 5 – 15 peoples, he single-handedly kill them alone. (Ofcourse, with refined technique, switching equipments on specific skills, evading behaviors, etc.)

      Any other games? probably not.

      • Ziggins on March 22, 2014

        Actually yes, there are several field-bosses in the game and dungeons and missions which have field-boss quality mobs at the end. Your character on mabinogi has literally no restrictions besides ONE or TWO skills that you can’t obtain on a specific race, but it’s made up for other skills as it is. You can build your character to solo anything because you’re allowed to utilize every combat style in the game. Need to fight Arc lich? np, throw down some barrier spikes and attack from behind. Need to fight the Giant Alligator? np, pull out some good knuckles and have at it. And you missed my point about the combat. Whats different between RO combat and WoW combat? You have no stun times besides skills that actually produce a stun affect. You don’t have to combo specifically. Hell, if you’re dishing enough dps, you can stand stationary and kill most mobs.

        (0)
      • Jason on March 23, 2014

        Mabinogi is unique BECAUSE it doesn’t restrict you to a “class”.

        Ragnarok is like most MMOs, where you’re stuck with one class.

      It’s sad indeed. I enjoy both games and thought this would be a nice experience to see how each community would react, but it turns out all they are doing is throwing hate either-side of the fence instead of promoting relations or representing their game.

      However, this competition has been stigmatized by suspected cheating and I think a lot of people are letting that cloud their vision, when it should just be forgotten about. If there’s cheating that is impacting the vote significantly MMOBOMB will notice it and act accordingly, they don’t need bickering fools to half-guess for them (especially when they have no evidence behind their claim).

    Mabi Votes—-5841—–6211
    Difference——3680—–3421

    3421-3680=-260

    R.O. gained 260 Votes on that last interval of 1000 votes.

    Okay to illustrate what I was talking about I have some numbers for you ( I’ll try to make a table but it may look bad sorry ahead of time). I’ll describe the differences from Mabinogi’s view point.

    Total Votes—-7001—–8001
    R.O.%———–24%—–27%
    Mabi %———-76%—–73%
    R.O Votes—–1680—–2160
    Mabi Votes—-5321—–5841
    Difference——3641—–3680

    Mabinogi gained by 3680-3641=39 votes even though R.O. went from 24% to 27%.

    Although the percentage for R.O. is rising this does not necessarily mean they are gaining. Mathematically speaking, the lower the percentage is, the easier it is for it to gain (in percentage). What matters are raw votes. The percentages don`t say the whole story.

    If you want to see who is gaining then what you need to do is at some point you calculate the total votes cast for each candidate and then the difference between them. Wait a while and do it again. Finally calculate the difference between the two differences.

    If you favor a particular candidate start with their number first and subtract the others number. When all is said and done if the difference of differences is positive your candidate is gaining, if negative the other is gaining and zero the difference between the two sums of votes is remaining constant.

    • Turambar on March 24, 2014

      This is not quite correct. It is not true that it is easier for the percent to go up when it is small. It is true that it is easier for the percent to increase/decrease when the Total Number of Votes is smaller.

      The percentages, along with the total number of votes, do tell the whole story; and just compairing percentages is enough to determine the winner without any extra calculations.

    I hope the bot problem gets resolved. These are both great games and they do not need to rely on cheating to obtain large quantities of votes. Both have a pretty good fan base and quite a large number of “dedicated players” that will be willing to defend the name of their respective game.
    I personally prefer Mabinogi over RO, but that is only because I love their stylized art and the amazing Celtic story line. If you have not played either of these games because they are “free to play”, I suggest you try them. These games are both a ton of fun! If you are an honest fan trying to support your favorite game, I agree that cheating on either side is intolerable. Not just for the two games in question, but all the other games in this Ultimate F2P Showdown.

    As a long time fan of RO, I have so many feels for that game. But let’s be real. It’s 2014, and RO has fallen so much from what it was a decade ago. That, and very few kids even know what RO is now. So many other animu MMOs have come out that are flashy and have more conventional styles of play that have almost entirely wiped the internet’s memory of RO. So if Mabinogi isn’t winning by at least twice as many votes, I will be surprised.

    I think people just need to calm down now. The polls have been reset, a poll reborn, a clean slate, a new sun has risen.

    Basically, stop all this hate and get on with the show. MMOBOMB have already said they’re tracking IPs and if anything suspicious crops up they will intervene, so stop this anti-(insert enemy game here) propaganda and instead show respect and root for your own game!

    note: If you are going to argue about player-counts and the such: bring cold hard proof so no one can disprove you, and then, only then, will you be taken seriously.

  71. SecurityIssuesAgain on March 21, 2014

    I wonder who is in charge for security on MMOBOMB but simply monitoring IP won’t change a thing on that vote. Most kids can easily write a small tool nowadays using worldwide proxys to setup a voting bot. Reading out the MAC would be a bit more secure (you can still spoof the MAC adress but well).

    Guess most honest players won’t vote again anyways because some side will start botting again. I’d prefer to see both sides removed from the whole poll since it was quite obvious none of them played fair.

    And also it’s a funny move that many game publishers give bonuses. Most seem to vote only to get bonuses and not because of the game. So it say nothing about the community actually but only shows the grief (especially in the cheating on both sides).

    • Taco on March 21, 2014

      Pretty much. For those who don’t know how AP works, it’s essentially the points you get to improve literally everything. Combat skills, crafting skills, magic, and even stat boosts from those skills. Each level gets you 1 AP, and combat skills generally take anywhere between 200 to 400 AP to max out. Considering how you’ll generally only be able to get around 100-130 AP in a three week period…

      3x AP is freaking huge.

      • Fylas on March 21, 2014

        If you rebirthed to level 1 atleast a week before the event and rebirth either with a free or paid rebirth during the event you can start over at level 1 twice, so even if you just (YES I SAID JUST :D ) 100 levels per rebirth thats still 600 ap which would be worth 1 and a half month of grinding. So yes 3 X ap = very huge.

        • Taco on March 21, 2014

          That’s pretty much the plan if Mabi does win. XD Rebirth to 17 Friday night, go nuts Saturday, use a card to rebirth Sunday and go nuts again. Got a bunch of exploration statues sitting around from an older gachapon thing, so that’s another 120-180 AP from the exploration levels.

    That, and it’s the most likely to make it the longest. It has a TEN YEAR DEVELOPMENT PLAN, this means that over the next FRIGGIN DECADE, this game will only get better and better, while a lot of other games will just fade into obscurity.

    How can anyone from any game community be accused of cheating? Because folks are voting more than once? At the bottom of THIS very article it says “Vote early, VOTE OFTEN, but vote”. That sounds like an endorsement to me. So this is just like American Idol where you can vote as often as you want. Where do they say you can’t?

    Or is it that just using bots is the issue? It’s okay as long as you vote often manually? I can’t see that either. If you can vote more than once as long as you do so manually, then the vote isn’t nessessarily reflecting public opinion in the democratic sense but is rather a measure of game fan loyality instead. Then use of bots would be the same; a measure of game fan loyalty.

    If this is meant as a pure democratic vote then make it clear and say so rather than suggest the opposite, and set it up so you can only vote once. Otherwise it’s just hypocracy.

      I agree with this idea, if you say “vote often” then mean it, or clarify what you mean, if this bracket gets removed it will cancel out the validity of the poll. Cause it is to find the best f2p, not the best f2p with fans that wouldn’t do whatever they could to see the game win.

    The problem is RO is yelling Mabinogi is cheating, but from past numbers though while I do not recall the exact number and even from a post on here showing the top last two amounts Mabinogi is second in the highest votes just under SMITE while RO did not even make it in the top 4 or 5 list.

    Now with the poll being closed its not hard to see the numbers for the votes was totaly abnormal though, but going from how voting was going even on the redo and redone poll mabi would still win giving past numbers of both game votes in the last two polls.

    • MelonMelo on March 21, 2014

      I wouldn’t go by past numbers, a lot of people didn’t even know about the polls going on. Also, Ro asked other ro communities in other regions and private servers to vote as well as a few other sites. Ones where old players usually go to when they quit. Anyway they both had bad apples in the bunch. If I was MMOBomb I would have removed both from the competition for both playing dirty. Which could still be a outcome at this point.

  83. Voter1335 on March 21, 2014

    Well, for RO there is not only iRO, we from euro (european ro) do also participate in the vote and have a playerbase of over 20k players. If the word is also spread to other servers, let alone all the pservers in europe and USA and maybe even other official servers world wide or also inactive players I hardly doubt that Mabinogi has a chance to win.

    I know that Mabinogi also has some servers around the world but I doubt it reaches ROs fanbase all-time.

    But It’s quite funny that Mabinogi players were also considered cheating before this vote and nothing happened before. This shows tha if those RO players wouldn’t have started doing the same thing to, Mabinogi would have simply won like before. Sometimes you have to do the wrong thing to do the right thing ^^

        Apparently, he doesn’t. RO maybe has an actual nostalgic value, but… Their fans are widespread around way too much to amount so some good polling from them. While Mabinogi is rumored to cheat since the beginning, RO probably is and nobody suspects it, because hey, RO players are apparently perfect.

        • LOLinternet. on March 21, 2014

          Well, the funny part is:
          It’s quite obvious Mabinogi was cheating before. Noone ever said RO players to be perfect but it doesn’t make the cheating on both sides any better.
          As already stated by someone, the RO side started doing so some hours after Mabinogi. I don’t defend doing this on any side. But if someone starts something, he shouldn’t wonder about the other side doing the same, ever heard of the time after WW2 (World War 2, for those who only know games)? Cold War?
          Anyways, for the european Ragnarok server it’s not that important to win this anyways, we also got offered an update that will come sooner or later anyways.
          But I heard other server put some more pressure into this contest. So people don’t really vote for the game but cheat for the benefits.

          And btw. still the playerbase of Ragnarok Online servers combined is bigger than all Mabinogi servers combined. Same goes for the Fanbase which is definitely to consider differently than the playerbase.

          But to put it back to your level:

          Blah blah a certain game is better than an other because my personal opinion is the only one that counts! So turn off every other online game server and stfu!
          Welcome to the internetz! ~.~

          Have fun cheaters, hope that the server administrators will not offer any of the promised benefits for the huge effort of making their game the one with most cheaters on it :)

            Good sir, do you have evidence Mabinogi was cheating before?

            I was watching the poll and it was roughly 4000 Mabinogi votes to 1000 RO votes before things got crazy, and that was about right since NA Mabi has EU players~ NA players so all time zones are covered, while TMK at the time only NA RO players were voting for RO. Therefore, these results seemed likely until the North-American populace woke up from their beauty sleep and saw the current results and sprung into action to combat one another.

            Also, Nexon is a massive corporation with huge funding and income, and they have several adverts/commercials etc to accomidate for their range of games (each successful with a lot of players) so that also would mean they have a huge player-base for Mabinogi.

            Ragnarok also has a huge player-base and fans, and it was inevitable that these two games would clash head-on at high votes.

      Smooth. However, you should give games longer than five minutes, maybe a week, to fully understand and go in-depth before you criticize, and also with that eye-sore of a post you have actually humiliated yourself and basically disrespected Mabinogi by feeling you need to insult the competition, so please grow up and remember every game here is represented by a lot of people, successful and fun.

    Not only was the vote announced by iRO, it was also announced by rAthena the same day. They have 18k members on their own, then there’s all the RO fan-sites and private communities; I wouldn’t be surprised if either side of the competition used cheat tactics, but in all honesty if you’re going to use a cheapass survey site with a simple “clear cookies and vote again” system, then what do you expect?

    RO is a good game and I’m playing it currently and been playing for 4 years max and has a great community though I’m pretty sure it is not as large compared to Mabinogi (never gave it a try) but despite that RO only gets by since majority of folk like to spend ridiculous amounts of cash in order to go toe on toe with the old players that have been playing and accumulating wealth over the years. And not to mention the other official servers like pRO and bRO “holy shit they make a killing on hypermarket mvp cards and regular raffles LOL”

      I agree RO renewal sucks.

      They aren’t even newbie friendly, NPC services cost are so high that its almost impossible to play. (With twice the fee to warp)

      I prefer playing jRO if you haven’t tried. They are doing a great job combining Pre-renewal with Renewal together.

      You feel exactly just like Pre-renewal, with added contents of 3rd Jobs and New world.

      Otherwise, you can always play the classic server, I had real fun back there at classic :P

      FYI I have been watching the vote count with my coded software.

      The increase in Player 2′s vote isn’t even natural as its increasing with constant graph.
      (yes, its CONSTANT, which is UN-natural at all means.)

      To be exact, Player 2 has been using cheats first at EXACTLY 21 hours ago.
      They stopped after an hour.

      That is far before player 1, at exactly 12 hours ago.

      Then player 2 starts cheating again at exactly 9 hours ago,
      with rate of 1k votes / hour (10 votes / mins)

      and 2 hours later (Noticing Player 1 has reached 40%), player 2 increased their votes rate at exactly 1k votes / 30 Mins (33.3 votes/mins)

      Which is cheating first to be exact?
      Got brains to comprehend?

        Well, still doesnt prove anything since they “could” still be real votes for either player, besides it only speculations that you are providing, that is not hard evidence with no concrete source.
        -
        Let just hope they beef up the security on the poles, with things like voting 1 per ip address, and like proxy safegaurds, along with word check when submitting votes, cancel out the bot possibilies, or at least mitigate their movements, cause obviously regardless of what anyone says, we all know that all players…. are idiots which would include me,
        -
        and honestly, we all know who is gonna win in the final, IT AINT GONNA BE MABINOGI OR RAGNAROK ONLINE, since either side is gonna vote against them in the final

    I was even in the process of downloading that game and giving it a try, but I really don’t want to support or encourage such blatant cheating. I can only imagine what the game must be like, and it couldn’t possibly be friendly with all this trash-talking I’m seeing.

    • Kryzaldo on March 20, 2014

      Every vote Mabinogi has been in within this contest has had high vote counts, are you sure it’s just not that the players are more active in voting?

      If you are going to pass a game based on the fact /both/ parties are cheating, then you have no right to call anything disgusting, and also do you play RO?, If so you should stop since you find it disgusting.

      Therefore, you should be careful when commenting, as fair enough you are entitled to your opinion, but also make sure it doesn’t make you look like a fool, or tries to belittle the other game, as every game here is to a high standard with a strong player-base who love their game.

        • LobsterFiend on March 21, 2014

          This is redundant since almost every single game on here has one single player who claims that they will cheat. Check the Pirates101 forums, or the Ragnarok forums. Mabinogi players took screen caps from their forums that shows that some people over there were gonna cheat as well. The fact of the matter is that it is extremely easy to cheat on this competition. If you don’t know how, then you’ve been living under a rock. However, the cheater do not even represent the majority most of the time.

        • EAPidgeon on March 20, 2014

          Seems pretty obvious both sides are cheating at this point, but it would seem either somehow Ragnarok has managed to rally ~10,000-12,000 players and far far more than their previous polls indicate. Or they’ve started botting.

          Now most of us are allured to the idea of golden rules/Hammurabi style behavior when we’re being wronged competitively. Whether politics or otherwise.

          Personal opinion is that unfortunately for all the legitimate voters out there I feel Ragnarok started vote botting, and Mabinogi is simply following suit at this point. Fact is if one side starts cheating the other side will start cheating equivalently to try to keep it “fair”.

          Regardless disappointed in both communities, and account registration should be required despite personally being against it.

            -

      That is very sad. :( You should not let a few cheaters ruin your image of something.
      Mabinogi is the most unqiue game I’ve ever played. I even think it will be the last game i ever play.
      I’ve played RO from beta in 2002 till it went P2P for the first time in 2003 then I played Mabinogi from korea in 2006, closed beta in 2008 till now. I’ve played both gamed additively and I still believe Mabinogi to be the best of the two, while both are nice to play.

      The game is really friendly and you should give it a try if you change your mind.

    Well I’m ashamed that my community is cheating, but it comes down to this…

    If we were to make a fair poll where no one could vote more than once and set it up between Mabinogi and Ragnarok Online in which there was no intervention between any other community – it would be only your version of Ragnarok (RO2 and other localized versions of the original can stay out) and only us as Mabinogi NA (no overseas servers or supportive players from other games) then I’d say Ragnarok Online would still lose. We’ve rallied our community rather well, the supportive non-cheaters are enough to carry us swiftly to victory.

    Goodness… the hype for Mabi on here is ridiculous! Haha. My opinion: LoL is going to beat Path of Exile in votes, but Path of Exile should win in my opinion as being a better game. That’s an opinion though. Then you have Planetside vs. Mabi… That is going to be a tough call. Winner of that will probably be a good competitor for the throne either way. Maplestory vs. Smite? Never heard of Smite. My assumption is that people will do whatever possible to stop Maplestory vs. Mabinogi for the throne. It could still happen. For Wizard I see Warframe taking it but not being a competitor for the top spot. It’s going to come down to LoL, Maplestory, or Planetside/Mabinogi for winner. My bias is with Mabinogi, but I don’t see why it needs to win besides that I think it should. The other 3 are great games in their own right… I still think PoE should beat LoL, but I’m not hopeful and it honestly has no chance against Maplestory or Planetside/Mabinogi where LoL could be a fierce competitor…

    • Sean on March 20, 2014

      I like how you completely disregard Smite because you never heard of it, although it has crushed every opponent so far (and TF2 is a pretty decent opponent). I think this poll shows more about the communities, what communities love their game. League is immensely popular, but the community shows no love. Smite hasn’t made a single announcement about this poll, it’s all been fan driven from the reddit. I think if it wasn’t based on just how much of the community loves the game, LoL would have been able to win by leaps and bounds every single round, but because it is struggling to gain votes, I can see Smite as a likely winner. I don’t remember how I saw it, but I saw something that said that in the first 2 rounds Smite had the most votes over all (i think it was by a decent chunk too)

    Too many mabinogi fanboy/fangirl on here. Mabinogi isn’t that interesting, once you finish the story, not much left to do except pay 2 win to get stronger. In the end I voted for RO, unlike Mabinogi, RO is a true MMO.

      The hell you talking about?! There is no way to beat Mabinogi. End game doesn’t exist. If you believe there’s nothing after the main story, then I pity you.

      The story is only about 5% of what Mabinogi has to offer. There is no level cap. It’s not even about getting stronger!

      You’re forgetting that Mabinogi is also a social/casual game; players HANG OUT more often than they GRIND. One can make music, perform tasks for NPCs, or even collect clothing (the clothes themselves almost always offer the same stats so in no way is this for getting stronger). There’s a reason why Mabinogi has one of the best communities.

      By the way, I haven’t spent a single penny on Mabinogi… yet.

        I just got 3 dogs and 4 cats from the doki doki event :D I love cats <3 that widdle scarf is sooo kyooote~ and things people do in mabinogi? first of its not "the main story" but "the main STORIES" plural, we got like 18 of em not counting the iria drama which is entering a second season after the first 10 chapters of season 1 finished (thanks for the armored pegasus reward nexon muahaha) And grinding? you grind more in ragnarok then in any other mmo because leveling is the only real way to advance in that game. Sure, its cute and you can chat, but that's about it, in mabinogi I can dress up and pit my fashion sense against any of the other players with the fashion contest, heck if you win for 1 week (ingame year) a statue of your char will be seen posing in the squares of the towns XD. Also mabinogi is the only game where technological advancement as well as new spells make sense. A world that advances 52 years per real year? it would be weirder if there wasn't any progress.

        And ragnarok which couldn't even get 900 votes in total in each last round magically increasing by 2 votes every 15 seconds, exactly the time you need to reset your internet connection in the middle of the night? yeaaah sounds legit :P

          In all honesty if any of you are reading this, you should vote for RO. RO is a much better game than Mabinogi. Mabinogi doesn’t get decent enough events or any good new permanent content. Once you play the game long enough and have master all skills, enchanted all your gear, max stats,reforges the game gets boring. Even if you don’t and reach total level 1000, the game becomes ridiculously easy. There is no difficulty what so ever, you can also just pay 2 win. The combat is slow paced and there’s quite a lot of glitches. The game also has lag issue. The server and channel crashes from time to time, don’t even mention when you lose your precious item from crashing. Even if you do sent a support ticket it would take weeks, months for support to even answer your tickets. And so what if the game is casual/social game, it won’t last long being only that. Only reason the game lasted this long is because of gachapon, reforges, and rebirth cards. Mabinogi has lots of problems with it, so do yourself a favor and vote for RO, don’t listen to those mabinogi’s fanboy.

            The game gets ridiculously easy at level 1000? Clearly you’re doing something wrong. Sure, some of the Generation Quest lines get easy, but there are several that only get harder the higher your total and/or talent(s). And… how in the hell did you manage to master all of the skills in only 1000 levels? Seriously, I’ve been playing since 2008, I’m only just closing in one 5k and I have so many skills to train and master that it’s not even funny. Max stats? Unlikely, unless you’re total 10k+ I don’t even want to hear about Max Stats from you. In addition, of course the gameplay is slow, the point is NOT to get hit, unlike most other MMOs that allow you to endure hit after hit. The combat system is unique and your character is far from invincible, even the strongest players that do get over 10k can’t take too many hits in the harder Shadow Missions. And as for support, they haven’t been the greatest, I’ll agree with that, but they’ve been improving, living in Maplestory’s shadow has kept us with a lot less, but the staff such as our Community Manager has been putting in a lot more effort to get stuff back to people.

            To say it’s only lasted this long is a lie, the game has lasted a long time and will keep on going because of the content that keeps on coming. I won’t completely defend the pay2win side, because some of these pets are pretty overpowered, but you don’t need pets, gachapon, reforges or even rebirth cards to enjoy and progress in the game. You only need a rebirth card to rebirth every week, you get a freebie every time you age up to 20 (which typically takes 3 weeks from a rebirth after 12 PM PDT/PST on Saturday).

            And to back pedal a bit, you’re complaining about events when right now we’ve got one running called Doki Doki Island where people can go and get pet-less flight, new pets, fancy looking armor, and all other sorts of fun without paying a dime on the game. In the past we’ve even had events that provided free reforges and rare items. Come now, don’t try to brainwash people to RO just because you don’t understand anything other than hearsay about Mabi.

      Please dont comment. You’re making yourself look stupid.
      You obviously didnt even finish the story OR play it for very long im guessing, since everyone who has put time into Mabinogi knows that there are multiple stories and not just one. I’ve played RO for about 2 weeks only and got bored of it. I didn’t even notice RO had a story; either it was non-existant or extremely lacking. Mabinogi has 18+ of these stories with more to come. Don’t talk if you don’t know your facts. Also you dont pay to get stronger, you play to get stronger.

        I’m sorry if you felt offended in anyway, but it’s sort of true. That’s just merely your opinion like this is my opinion with some true fact. You should also stop ,because you’re making yourself look like an ignorant fanboy. Once you finish G1-G18 not much to do, except daily/raid. The difficulty of the game is laughable, with these talent bonus, skill training pot that gachapon pooping out, they even nerfed G1-G3 and G9-G12. Don’t even get me started about lore there’s a scooter pet and soon to be flying food truck pet. And actually you do pay to get stronger, because enchant and reforges and even gachapon, have you seen elemental reforges? Or those somewhat new pre R1 item BDK Bow, BDK Sword, Beams, Dowra and etc.You also can’t “play” to get stronger without free rebirthing per 3weeks or paid weekly rebirth.

        • Sooshi on March 26, 2014

          1) The pets have nothing to do with the lore lol please listen to yourself
          2) Difficulty increases with your talent level / total level and the dungeon you are doing. You prob haven’t gotten that far yet if you think the difficulty is laughable.
          3) Who says you need to pay for all that shit? I havent paid a dime for gachapon or reforges and I’ve been doing just fine.
          4) Rebirthing every 3 weeks isnt that bad. You just need to learn how to not blow all your ap in less than 3 weeks.

          I’ve played RO, to be honest, its boring and you grind more in that game than anything else. MMOs arent about grinding btw. MMO means massively multiplayer online so how is RO a “true MMO” and Mabi is not?

          P.S. I think you’re fanboying over RO a bit too much too btw. Also Mabi is a social game more than a KillShit&Level type of game like RO.

    I can see Mabinogi potentially losing once it faces RO. RO has better music, older fanbase, amazing art, and has lived in private servers for long after the official servers went down. Plus, it will have renewed interest as people look forward to Tree of Savior online.

    Also, Mabinogi gets some default hate for being Nexon, and the pets/reforges create a very negative pay2win experience.

    As far as I can tell, the divisions are all locked.

        Mabinogi is one of the biggest game in korea, they go have conventions dedicated to it XD besides RO has RO2, you’ll be lucky if the RO fans haven’t quite RO and joined RO2 if they really are so dedicated, sadly for the RO2 fans, RO is a different game still. Mabinogi was not only released before RO, but the graphics are way better, RO was stuck on 2-dimensional. Yea so RO2 is 3-d and non -anime looking-I actually don’t visually like more realistic looking games- but mabi doesn’t have a class system, well it kinda does, but you don’t have to be dedicated to the class, just being in it gives u x2 exp towards your skills. Mabi also has been offering a lot of free stuff to the f2ps, such as new pets, and certain events give out pon for changing your charas looks,and the rebirth system allows you to start your charas lvl over so you can gather up more ap, but you still keep your skill ranks, which is what really matters anyways.

    I hope Mabinogi wins the rogue division, but I wonder how big Planet Side 2′s player base is….. And as for a thread way up above about what constitutes an MMO, if people simply read the definition of MOBA and MMO I think it is pretty straight forward, as well as the fact that Massively Multiplayer in and of itself would mean many, many players playing together all at once, not separated into small games with no relation- which would be Massive Multiplayer.

  137. Fidens Libertas on March 12, 2014

    Mabinogi is an awesome game. one of the best thing about it is that it doesn’t use a tank based battle system like other MMO games.

    for those curious a tank based battle system is where you attack an enemy(they don’t flinch from taking a sword to the face) and they attack you(you don’t flinch either) and you basically keep attacking each other till 1 of you dies. it’s like a race to get your enemy’s HP to zero first and you could practically just go afk and let the whole battle happen itself.

    Mabinogi uses a tactical battle system where you must observe your enemy’s actions and react to them to gain the upper hand. the battle does not happen automatically like with a tank based battle system. you have to stay active and aware of everything that’s happening during the battle. this gives you a chance to actually show your skills for what they are.

    another great thing about Mabinogi is character development. it is done in a variety of ways all at the same time(or almost all) and there is like no end to how far you can develop your character(s), no matter how much you develop you character(s) there is always room for improvement unlike many other MMO where your development stops once you’ve reached the level cap. in Mabinogi i am almost level 3000 and not only am i not even close to my fullest potential but even at this high level there are still enemies that are many, many times stronger than me yet despite that as long as i’m not rash, am smart enough and if possible have good friends at my side i can defeat these enemies that are way stronger than me.

    another appeal of Mabinogi is the very friendly community. no one has called me a noob in Mabinogi and i’ve never seen anyone call anyone else a noob. calling other players noobs is a problem i have seen in many other MMO.

    another appeal of Mabinogi is that it doesn’t have a class system. say you’re a skilled archer but you suddenly decide you want to use a sword, Many other MMO wouldn’t let you do that but in Mabinogi you can just put the bow/crossbow aside and equip a sword. you archery skills will remain as good as they are while you are perfecting your sword skills so if you decide to go back to archery you won’t have to restart your training.

    if culture and/or mythology is appealing to you then you’re in luck, Mabinogi draws from pre-christian Irish mythology. (and before you say Ragnarok Online is based on Norse mythology remember that game is based on a Korean comic based on Norse mythology so Ragnarok Online draws its mythology inspire theme from a secondary source where as Mabinogi draw it from a primary source)

    one final appeal to Mabinogi is that its theme of fantasy life is strongly present, say you don’t want to do battles, then you can be a cook, a blacksmith, a tailor and plenty of other things, you don’t want to go into dangerous dungeons and such to get the materials then have other players escort you or have them get it for you. you can reward them by making them swords, armors, food and other items of higher quality than what you’d find in an NPC shop. while you do this and other things your relationship with other players will get stronger and while you’re at it seek romance, Mabinogi has a marriage system and even a family system where married couples can adopt other players as their kids thus forming a family. this game took the life concept of fantasy life to a new level.

    • Kinuna on March 19, 2014

      It’s quite funny, I love the battle system and so does everyone who plays mabi, but according to game sites and some users I have met, who played the game for a short bit but didn’t understand what they were doing, the battle system is also considered a disadvantage to the game. What’s so great about sitting in place and hitting a monster and occasionally hitting a skill in hopes you kill the opponent first. People prefer all these realist-looking games, but they don’t prefer realistic battle systems?!
      Also RO is apparently a manwa based mmo. Sounds kinda similar to elsword in all honesty, except elsword has a decent battle system as well, a lot more fun then sitting in place and stabbing someone over and over… I dun like that in elsword tho everything is so cash based to me, and that your stuck with a specific looking chara.

    Er, really, who even made this list? It just takes purely random mmos and put them together. Also with no references to genre or category. Rpg with shooters? How can you compare them? What does rogue or warrior division even mean? Because they have no connection. And it seems the mmo being compared are very randomized. There are other mmo that should be in this list, and some needs to be taken out.

      Just because we do a good job informing the player base doesn’t mean you should label us as cheaters. Our official thread informing players as over 15k views, over 15k individual mabinogi players who knew about the mmo contest, do you really think we needed to sink to cheating?

  149. why on March 11, 2014

    If Mabinogi’s combat or gameplay isn’t unqiue, please I really want to know if there’s anything actually like it.

    You know, combo oriented combat that’s kind of similar to a fighting game, in that you have to consider positioning but also what attacks are viable where they all basically stun the enemy. Not just targeting an enemy and pressing a button to use a skill, or just doing so in sequence while minding the fire on the floor, I mean actually considering damage types, which attacks will keep you from being retaliated against and whether or not its viable based on your position etc. Tera isn’t really like that, WoW or any of the standard MMOs aren’t like that, seriously what is?

    I think Mabinogi is a spectacular game because of its combat, not to mention the fact that its supposed to have something for everybody like life skills or music, tons of clothes and a really social community, but god damnit is the administration horrific. The engine is old, you get your occasional hacking outbreaks, and in some cases its pretty pay to win (Yes, I’m talking about reforges, you can get a lot more potential damage out of reforges as compared to a skill/stat hoarding build, and is also just an RNG gamble)

    but the reason Im asking is because I love the combat more than any other MMO I have ever played. Its completely unique, as far as I can tell, which makes me feel like its completely under-rated, unless theres another game out there with similar combat or concept, in that case: i want to play it

    reposted because i need other things to play but im picky as hell

    • RevenantBacon on April 7, 2014

      Yeah, there’s a game that has combat like that. Well, actually it’s more like a whole series of games. OK, so to be more specific, that basically describes the ENTIRE FANTASY RPG GENRE.

    The amount of retarded people raging over this orz, just reading through this is too funny, not fair? not a legit matchup? informing companies is wrong? #killyourself…. IIm sure people is gonna rip on any comment being positive for this but meh, I could care less, people… and eat my horrible spelling and grammer =D
    -
    Popularity contest of obviously a random selection of mmo with a decent amount of players
    -
    Informed companies so they can let the players know instead of limiting it to the mmobomb community only, plus wider coverage of the contest
    -
    Not created to suit you freaken needs of specific titles
    -
    The line up is not in any particular order or of age of existance
    -
    Losers bracket? what is this? 1 bracket of specific genre games? no reason to have it since its basically showing who has a more active community or a community that cares
    -
    people hating on cash shop prices? you make me sick…. sure free to play should be balanced but I havent even seen games that litterally breaks the game by selling shit to their players to keep the game alive…. it cost money to maintain games and server people, understand that… ill understand if its like 1 shot kill weapons in fps games but in mmos, who gives a shit, their money, their advantedge, apparently people who rage about cash items are people who don’t spend money at all to help the game they obviosuly like. IE: Mabinogi reforges imbalanced? Cash shop only? people sell them on a daily basis for a reasonable price…. 200-300k, which is easy as hell to make, even with only a low lvl character. AK eidoloians limited to cash shop? ITS freaken tradable people…… buy it from players….
    -

    let’s hope next time they only do the games that truly are Free To Play …. not Free To TRY AT A HANDICAPPED LEVEL UNTIL YOU COUGH UP THE SUBSCRIPTION MONEY

    Mabinogi all the way…..total freedom to develop characters, ability to choose genders, races, skills….no classes to choose from which is AWESOME….be a warrior with high levels of magic that’s not too shabby with a bow ….now that’s character creation

    take a break from battling to do crafting, farming, fishing, or just hanging out……sometimes when i can’t sleep i kick on Mabi….take of my characters (you get 3 of em for FREE) to sit under a tree away from everything to listen to the birds chirp overlooking Maiz Prairie then just drift off to sleep

    your first character (usually human) is totally free….as you play you come across two different races from which you get an assist character from each ….totally free…and can play as any one of them you choose….you can even play as one of your pets if you want in order to train them up so they can better help in battle IF you need them….and now we can transform into different creatures ourselves to take on their skills while transformed….totally awesome game

    • Fylas on March 13, 2014

      you don’t really transform into other creatures and take on their skills, the transformation mastery allows you to use your basic melee skills while posing as let’s say a bear XD its mostly for fun since you can transform into almost everything. Choosing gender and race aren’t really features, things like that are standard. What is mentionable is that when you rebirth, which you can do endlessly you can actually not only change appearance but also gender.There is even a journal achievement for that ^^’. The maximum level is… none, anything under 300 is considered newbie and gets bonus beginner support like free potions and skill reset + daily rebirth. my main character has a total level over 4k base and 2k exploration + 2-3 k Ability points from daily quests and events. I know some people with a total level over 20k who are LITERALLY master of almost every skill in game XD. And the recent updates in korea abolished the 7 day premium rebirth and made it a free feature, so in a few months instead of rebirthing for free every time you hit age 20 you can do it every 7 days in NA too :D

      Um no they didn’t? If you actually took the time to read when the polls begin for each bracket you’d notice the next bracket doesn’t start until tomorrow… They took the weekend off, which makes sense given its the weekend and people deserve time off from things. Plus it would have probably made it difficult on them to change out the polls and post info.

      But anyways, Mabinogi is going to take that Rogue Division spot for sure.
      May be an older game, but it’s updated constantly and very often with brand new ADDED content. That age gives it an advantage of just having so much under it’s belt. Other games only have eye candy going on for them.

      Unless you forget the fact that there is the moon clans category un warframe with more than 800 clan members (without counting the alliances) and the gms was announcing the vote at the region chat(unos as the red test) so warframe not just had won aganist vindictus but also won aganist the whole nexon community which was supporting vindictus soo this polo was seems more than legit to me even if both sides was using botts of proxies.
