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!
