Congratulation To Warframe, Winner of MMOBomb's Free-To-Play World Cup!

In the end, Jedi were no match for space ninjas.

Throughout the Free-To-Play World Cup, we'd seen fairly low vote totals for each contest. We'd thought that by @mentioning the games in the polls that some accounts might retweet them and garner additional support for their games. That didn't happen, though -- until the final round.

The winning margin, 96% to 4%, was the highest we'd seen in any of our contests, and the votes cast were just as gargantuan: 17,696. No other poll had even cracked quadruple digits, yet Warframe fans, it seemed, took up the challenge and sliced through Star Wars: The Old Republic like a hot katana through a ewok.

SWTOR fans, take heart: 4% of 17,696 is still 708, which would have been plenty to win any other matchup in the F2P World Cup. And Warframe fans, don't get too cocky about your victory ... what was that someone said about being struck down and then becoming more powerful than you could possibly imagine?

Congratulations to Warframe for taking the title, to Star Wars: The Old Republic for making it to the finals, and to all the other games, and their fans who voted throughout the contest!

It's an remarkable piece of writing for all the web viewers; they will get advantage from it I am sure.

I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your website. It appears as though some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen before. Appreciate it

Congrats to Warframe! One of the best space ninja game ever made! F2p, never get bored of it, awesome community.

Swtor is free to play but they implemented level restrictions for free users and restrictions for certain gears when it's important in pvp which sucks they made the game unbearably unbalanced. Even when some says it's a "free to play" category and not being actually a "demo" it's still gonna lose because of player support from devs which they constantly ignore where warframe listens to their players more. Swtor is basically a cash grab game.

Warframe, has a terrible PVP mode and a boring end game. But it's still the best MMORPG F2P I've played.
Congratulations to the winner!

The final battle shouldn't have been SWTOR vs Warframe. Path of Exile vs Warframe seemed like a more likely matchup. SWTOR having gone to the finals was surprising, not in a good way.

SWTOR has one of the worst F2P models and Warframe has one of the best.

How will be swtor a problem for warframe? Swtor is trial mode and warframe is f2p. Swtor limited level to 50 while cap actually if paying is 65 or 70 cant remember. With this you arent f2p is like call f2p World of warcraft with lvl 20 cap for people who try to play free. So swtor never will win none.

Not much of hurdle when the majority of F2P's are garbage. I still don't understand why everyone is occultist like when it comes to Warframe. It's boring with trash mobs as bad as Vindictus probably worse because you see people just run through the dungeon in most streams. The pointless repetitiveness just has me dumb founded into why any would waste their time on such a game.

Yes, congratulation Warframe. (slow clap)
