64 games entered, but only four remain. Who will prevail? Which game will reign supreme?

The last four games in contention are all unique. We’ve got a MOBA where you take on the role of a mythical deity (SMITE), a hardcore ARPG (Path of Exile), a cute anime-inspired MMORPG (Mabinogi), and a space-ninja action/shooter game (Warframe). We couldn’t ask for much more variety than that.

Curiously, three of the final four games were seeded at #3 (and the fourth, PlanetSide 2, was just eliminated in the last round). It seems that the really big games, the #1 and #2 seeds, lacked proper fan support, while the #3 games were both big enough to have enough people to rally while being small enough to really care about the tournament. Kudos to you, #3 seeds, as well as you crazy Mabinogi folks.

These games have won their match-ups by an average of 30 percentage points, but it hasn’t always been easy. Mabinogi and Warframe both were almost eliminated in the first round, while after stomping face in the first two rounds, Path of Exile has had a much harder time of it in later rounds. SMITE had an unexpectedly tough go of it in round one against Aura Kingdom, but overall seems to have had the easiest path to tread. We’re betting that will change soon.

OK, enough of the blather. Let’s get down to it, shall we?

The Final Confrontation: SMITE vs. Warframe

Currently Livestreaming Poll Results:

(voting ends Monday, April 7 at 1 p.m. PDT)

  1. Smite, or Warframe, probably one of the hardest decisions for me to make, i play both of them, and i love both of them, neither of them are pay to win, they both get better and better with every update, and they are just top teir games. I feel like the only decision should be based on which game is more fun, but thats just the hardest part, they are both so fun!

  2. Well, it’s now the time to see which game wins. Smite, or Warframe. I want Smite to win, and we used to be winning by a 10K lead, but now we only have a 800 vote-lead. I still believe we can win this, even if this is insanely close. For all those Warframe fans, warframe is a good game, so props if you guys win this vote.

  3. well not to be racist but warframe is sucks.. you only fight NPC for the entire your life.. playing online means not just playing with your friend but also fight another player alongside of your friends.. look at Nova.. if she got energy to cast her 4th skill.. any kind of warframe that can survive? what kind of game is that? or just use ignis or another AoE weapon who wanna duel you anymore?.. this game truly design for PvE and never intend to PvP (beside the duel system and Conclave war is truly disappointed) well I’m enjoying playing warframe but you only doing the same routine.. I’m voting for smite because I met just not only an AI with increasing armor and HP but I met human that fight me.. beat my tactic and more challenging… sorry to type this but this is the ultimate truth..

      • well I’m looking forward for that too, and I can’t wait.. but right now what I judge is the present gameplay that we playin’ right? and even that clan vs clan is on I don’t think it’ll be good since every warframe skill is way too OP.. just say valkyr can immune damage for 72 second and pull you whenever you are insight.. what I’m trying to say is the warframe skill is ultimately broken for PvP..

    • brainless degenerate. all the time playing pve pvp same maps, zero rpg elements, clone of other shit clones, smite go back to ur shit hole with other crap generic mobas

      • I bet you got owned by many players and can’t played it, regardless your coward to the game you running and crying from that game and play warframe.. happy killing NPC for your entire life dude? that’s what I called pity..

    • Some ppl like only pve games… but anyway like ant said, its only the beta version, a long beta yes, but beta. Imo some games at pvp sucks… And even with a good pvp on warframe I woudnt play it. Most MMO are pve in the major part. If you dont like warframe good for you 🙂

      • well I’ve never said I didn’t like warframe, I’m playing and I’m enjoying it and I’m rank 11 in warframe but I’m enjoying it not as much I’m enjoying smite.. the dev still planing to make pvp right? they aren’t implement it yet right? so basically people vote warfame because promises that the dev given to you not because the reality they playing right now.. well if warframe PvP are that good now tell me why the duel and conclave war is so deserted.. and how long this warframe going to be Beta? until you have 6 children maybe? well who knows…

      • ummm… well I’ve never said I didn’t like warframe, I’m playing and I’m enjoying it and I’m rank 11 in warframe but I’m enjoying it not as much I’m enjoying smite.. the dev still planing to make pvp right? they aren’t implement it yet right? so basically people vote warfame because promises that the dev given to you not because the reality they playing right now.. well if warframe PvP are that good now tell me why the duel and conclave war is so deserted.. and how long this warframe going to be Beta? until you have 6 children maybe? well who knows…

        • u cant just “assume” that people vote cause devs promise pvp for wf players i personally play and played wf for the same reason i started it not cause they will “add” pvp or promise to add pvp i sure would love to see them adding pvp but until then i am enjoying the pve aspect of it and i got nothing to complain about really.As far as the whole “beta” comment goes they can be in beta as long as they like i dont see the problem i honestly prefer being in a game that is in beta for 2-3 years and take their time to “improve” their gameand get ready when its time to release it to give us awesome stuff pvp wise or otherwise than have a game in cb for 1 month and see no differences from cb to op to release so i dont get why it bothers u so much and although u do deny it for me it seems u kind bashing wf i mean all this complaining just enjoy the game dude if u cant stick to smite which is equally as good in its own way

        • Just clarifying some tid-bits ^-^

          Warframe isn’t going to have PvP aside from what’s currently available (Confirmed by devs in one of the earlier Live/Devstreams). This is intended as a strongly PvE focused game and this measure is viewed highly by a great percentage of the community. Project Badlands is actually PvE setup by your fellow Tenno, watch the latest Devstream for a full preview.

  4. Waframe is a pay to win game i played it
    1.The planets you go into have a area that look the EXACT same as every other planet they just make it longer
    2.You cant get good items when you dont pay
    Smite isnt a pay to win you can pay for costumes or the god pack(worth 100 or 200 pounds i think) for £20 so its not pay to win and smite is a different moba from any other.Lets take DOTA 2 as a example i find it too complicated because you have to click to move and its difficult and its a top down view at that point i saw smite 3rd person moba and now im sick at playing at it.Ok there is only 1 map each mode but there is 5-8 modes to play which have a unique map but it can be fun

    Warframe gets boring after a week in my opinion and its too repetitive so smite is a better game by MILES and i mean MILES

    • So, SMITE doesn’t do exactly the same thing? Same map, maybe some different game modes. Also, Warframe has a pay option, but it is certainly not a p2w. You can get almost any item in the game just by grinding. Items that are pay only are cosmetic items, and a payment of 170 platinum, which is the standard amount, costs about 9 euros. Don’t get me wrong I play MOBA games too, but IMHO warframe is better, simply because it is a lot more packed with action. Also, you haven’t played warframe nearly enough if you think it’s p2w.

        • You guys are embarrassing….
          I’ve played both games and both are awesome. NONE of them is pay to win. Both are work to win.
          IF you can’t even grasp that, then please abstain from commenting bullshit.

    • – Elements of Warframe that are P2W = 0% (actually -1000% course they give away even the design elements from time to time that has no influence on the game)

      1, Warframe is a Beta and change nonstop – and I think it is quite a while since you played it. Every Planet has an own completely unique tyleset. The get released with every big update.

      2. All items – I UNDERLINE – ALL items are craft-able. The strongest and best can be ONLY crafted – you can’t buy them. I know that – I never bought anything but slots and I possess everything, that the game has to offer.

      3. I play warframe for over a year now – and it never got this boring, that I would quit (becourse of massive good updates weekly). Ok the first 600h gameplay were the best I admit – the next 700 were “ok”. But hey – how many games bring you to play them over 300h today?! Really man you have no idea.

      Conclusion = you are a noob at Warframe and don’t understand the game (that actually is quite easy).

    • Your explanation of warframe being a pay to win game is quite dizzy. A lot of things they give it to you free ( well you have to build it ), i say the only thing you really have to pay for is a bunch of forma for your dojo and some times they give that free. And if you don’t want to pay for there in game currency ( platinum ) then just watch and talk there broadcast and they might give you 1000 platinum.

      • It won the vote by 1%…… don’t act like smite got stomped. people are acting like this ACTUAL MATTER WHEN IT MEANS NOTHING. this was literally a contest of who can advertise the poll for there cause more. smite advertised it in the game launcher and from what I heard warframe advertised it in the client (please correct me if in wrong i don’t play warframe sooo I would not know…) people have there own opinions and they all like different games. people need to stop acting like kids.

        • Don’t forget – actual accounts of Smite = 7million
          If we would let the mass of the gamer base to deside – you would be still smashed.

          • EDIT (less/more sings don’t function here =/)

            Don’t forget – actual accounts of Smite = less than 5 million
            of Warframa = more than 7million
            If we would let the mass of the gamer base to deside – you would be still smashed.

        • PPS: Yes you are wrong – Warframe had no launcher adds like smite. We had a very small annotation in the news section (that is read by less than 1% of all gamers).

    • It isnt smite is a 3rd person style game where you can use your WASD keys(my goodness how rare in a MOBA) and its more of a challenge cuz in LoL you just farm mobs and pushing enemys where as smite people use jungles for buffs money etc and at lvl 15-20 fighting becomes more of a team game so its more tactically harder

    • games in the same Genre sharing the same concept, le gasp! Are you going to tell me next that COD and Modern Warfare also share the same concept?!?

  5. If we win this war, every Tenno will be eligible to have one of the pups of my dear Zanuka. Now in every rainbow color and with elemental powers! Have a part of your Tenno brothers always with you with one of the Zanuka pups even during your lone skirmishes against the Grineer!

  6. Whether we win or lose, let SMITE know this.

    We challenged the gods, and they acknowledged us as a threat. We have fought hard. Let the winners win, but let them honor the loser for their effots

    • Nothing wrong with that. If you’re curious, come try the game out! That is why our community was so passionate about this tournament. Free advertising and new potential players!

  7. As much as I would like to see Warframe as the deserved winner, Smite has at the moment clearly the better promoting and a nearly sure advantage.
    Not even 2% of the Warframe community bother to vote =/ (or even know about this).

  8. Yeah warframe!!! no doubt it will win, has the biggest fan support ive ever seen in a game…and ive played alot of games 0)_(0

  9. I’m sorry but…how in the gods, no pun intended, did anyone even beat Path of Exile. Like seriously. Hi Rez has thrown away their PvE community.

    • HiRez basically only has one game now. The rest are relics of the past. There is NO room for PvE in a MOBA other than for training purposes.

      There are plenty of casual MMOs (and even some casual MOBAs coming up) out there for people to play, HiRez doesn’t have to try and cater to a PvE community no one gives two sh*ts about anyway.

      As for how PoE didn’t win? This is a popularity contest, and PoE didn’t drum up enough popularity to stay in. Simple as that. League aside, PoE probably has the largest F2P community of all these games. But that doesn’t mean they’re all voting for the game on some obscure F2P MMO site.

  10. Voting for anything against smite mainly because Todd Harris (creator of smite) is a sick freak who enjoys the thought of having most female gods oversexualized, surprised scylla didn’t

    • You’ve never LOOKED UP the gods they’re based on have you?

      Smite hasn’t done a whole lot of oversexualization, it didn’t have to.

      • um yes it has it got so excessive at one point it cause a major controversy within hindu leader “These leaders have labelled the old Kali model as being depicted in a “pornographic style” which appeared to be their main concern” a quote from those leaders” besides don’t you have anything to do other than support this porno of a game weirdo

        • Just because they look sexy doesn’t mean anything about the game gods are suppose to look fine I mean seriously Aphrodite is the goddess of love she is suppose to look pretty sexy. I wouldn’t want to play some ugly kali we still have some ugly gods (Cute basarkua) he isn’t even cute he is just a adorable little creature :3. Syclla is a kid looking god so is she suppose to have adult things?
          no basically I don’t care about grammer so grammer Nazi’s! away

        • There was a whole game theory episode dedicated to this, the gods in smite are actually undersexualised, with regards to the old Kali model she was frequently portrayed naked, and for Aphrodite she was rarely even portrayed with clothes on.

    • Butthurt radfems are the cutest thing. In no culture have gods ever been an accurate representation of the average female.

    • im sorry do you know anything about mythology? lets take a look at Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love, beauty and pleasure. so how would you display her? because in most of the artistic representations and myths of her she is nude…. if anything smite undersexualizes them or most if not all would quite literally be running around naked. people need to know the facts before they they start to complain about things.

  11. It is as if mmobomb wants the gaming community to fight each other and to create drama. I’m rooting for smite and it’s solely because of it’s amazing community. It’s gonna be a close one, and of WF wins, I’ll just say nice work to the community for supporting your game.

  12. Smite is waaay better and well unique to LoL and DOTA but im shocked how you guys cant vote for world of tanks.Seriously now there is way to many anime fans if it was a general audience world of tanks would sail through to the final since the new 9.0 test server patch demolishes any other games graphics and playstyle out there

    • There are a lot of anime fans around here but then again look at MMOBombs site, what would you expect (that being said i don’t care for those types of games). WoT was good while i played it but no matter what it always seemed way too unoptimized and WarGaming never seemed to do anything about it for years – this may be different now, i havent played it in a while but I have been on WoWp from time to time – but I too did expect it to go further, it has decent graphics and an enjoyable gameplay, and hey if the Chinese attempted to make a copyright-infringing clone it MUST be good!

    • World of Tanks was beaten by 15 votes. Both games in that match up had roughly 1100 votes or so. It was a 1 seed. I’m all about upsets, so I voted for Eden Eternal. Maybe if their playerbase would of cared, they would of voted for their own game.

      • Voting for smite, smite fans should be thanking me I’ve been winning this whole thing for them and the mods don’t even seem to care xD

        • Sure. I guess the Smite Reddit community should be thanking you for using a fake username and claim all their votes are yours.


        • only for about 3k of the votes lol not all the credit smite was on the verge of losing to path of exile I helped pull it through :p

        • obviously trying to bump smites votes down by claiming to bot 3k votes. MMOBomb gets rid of botted votes properly at the end of voting, they don’t check comments and assume. and if you are genuinely being truthful then congratulations for wasting your time

        • lol you realize mmobomb has no affiliation with easypoll they didn’t get rid of my botted votes lol I use proxies to make it look like different legitimate computers voted and i can screen cap my bot if you don’t believe me :p

        • kool, i appreciate the fact that you’re admitting the fact that you cheated.
          but to bot votes and even go as far as using proxy just to promote your game? look at all the games u guys defeated on the way to finals, i can say that any of them deserve as much to win as smite. you should be ashamed of yourselves.

    • Such a retarded false flag. I don’t know if you’re 12 or trying to prove some point. I’ll state the obvious that if you were botting, then you wouldn’t post it here. Grow up kiddo before trolling next time. You can see Warframe is botting by comparing voting totals between the different polls.

      • hey the only reason I’m admitting to botting is to show how stupid this whole thing is and how easy it is to manufacture votes, I’m botting smite because it’s the only actual game here I’ve played and might as well help boost its popularity while proving a point

        • Can you troll somewhere else stuipd kiddo? Only other stupid kiddos will believe you, so what’s the point of trolling here?

          • Someday you’ll have to realize not everything that happens that is against what you believe is a troll wasn’t smite made to make ppl more open minded? I already explained my motive yet your still fixed in denial of the botting aspect of it? If anyone needs to grow up its you stop playing these video games and live in the real life learn what life has to teach you rather than focusing on something as stupid as best f2p game.

          • Also, learn English. Try punctuation. I’m not going to bother trying to decipher your garbage. If you wanted smite to win and wanted to cheat, you wouldn’t admit you’re cheating. You’re just a stupid kiddo Warframe fanboi who doesn’t even understand how to subtly troll. Poor attempt. 0/10. You’ll only convince other stupid kiddos.

  13. Smite is the clear better game. Free-to-play but also $30 for all current and future characters in the game. All gods can be bought with ingame currency. They don’t have runes like LoL that reward those who pay real money for gods so they can get power advantage faster. In Smite, everyone has an equal playing field, even if you only have the 10 free rotation gods.

    Smite is better, but unfortunately, they’re not hiring bots, so they will lose.

    • Going from what you just said, Warframe would be the better game because, other than pure cosmetic item like the color palettes and scarfs, everything can be obtained with sheer hard work. And what gives you any reason to think warframe is “hiring bots”? butthurt because your game lost to them?

      • Warframe may have everything except cosmetics free, it’s big issues are that it’s very grindy repetitive and slots are a platinum only item

      • No, going from what I just said, Smite would be the better game. Try some reading comprehension lessons. Everything in Smite can be acquired with sheer hard work (other than cosmetics, which you can actually buy quite a few without real money), but you also have the option to pay $30 to get every character in the game.

        Do you have an option in Warframe to pay $30 to get every current and future character? LoL doesn’t have this option. The only better business model would be Dota 2, where everything is unlocked at the start.

        Smite doesn’t have runes. League of Legends has runes which make you more powerful. You can only by these with ingame currency, but you can purchase ingame currency boosts for real money, and you can buy characters with real money to save your ingame currency for power boosts. Since Smite doesn’t have these, everyone is on an equal playing field.

        Warframe is hiring bots based on the vote counts from the most recent poll and previous polls.

      • Also, when I say “Warframe is hiring bots”, I’m not necessarily referring to the developers (though that’s possible), but someone who wants Warframe to win is doing it.

      • “Moba clone”? WTF does that mean? Do you see how stupid your words are? That’s like saying “FPS clone”. MOBA is a genre. Saying a game is a “[genre] clone” is stupid. Smite is in that genre.

        • i am not gonna bother arguing with u all i will say is 1 thing and if u got it u got it if u didnt then u didnt.


  14. Well the obvious winner is Smite. It’s the clear better game, however it has bigger things to celebrate and thus I imagine many people really don’t care much about a random site holding a poll like this.

    Whereas there really isn’t anything to do in Warframe, so it makes sense that people have plenty of spare time to come and vote while they wait for content.

    But as has always been clear, this is just a popularity contest.

    • We does have things to do in Warframe. At least we will get even more things to do next week with a huge update bringing us endgame related content (what we think being “badlands”), and a total rework of our melee system (but it’s not really endgame related. It’s just good to know). By the way, having a game with more or less content than another one is not a reason to not vote for our beloved one. Saying that people playing warframe “has plenty of spare time to come and vote” due to this looks like a taunt but I think it was not your intention.

    • In what way its better ? Advertised more ? 😀 Its a clone of other mobas, there is no rpg elements, u all the time play same map all the time and not progress ingame, everytime u start from scratch, all u do is erning ingame money to buy next character wich will be pretty same , just different looks with almost same skills, i see this very boring, its like counter strike where u play one map all the time , boredom.

  15. Now…i wonder if Warframe is going to get over 70% of the votes, or over 80…
    We can’t know how hard the humiliation will be, but we do know that it will indeed be a humiliation of immense quality.

    • It won’t be a domination nor an humiliation. Even if I’m for Warframe, don’t understimate Smite : that game has a huge potential.

      Don’t tell that kind of thing by the way, it’s wishing bad luck and can start flamewars.

  16. Honestly, MMOBomb did a horrid job of hosting this.
    1. Should’ve hid every poll so there wouldn’t be any drama, because now they created enemies between games.

    2.Should’ve actually done a better job against botters. Why host when you can’t even make sure it will be a fair fight? (Goes with #1)

    3. Place better rules, such as 1v1. You want to see if that game’s community will actually vote or not. Yes Nexon had all of it’s games vote for Mabi in the semifinals, but that was at the very end after Airmech backed Warframe the whole time. WF vs Mabi with blind polls would have been a lot fairer than what really happened.

    Srsly MMOBomb, get your shit together.

    • “Vote For Your Favorite Games in the MMOBomb.com Ultimate F2P Showdown!”

      That was the name of the initial post for this tournament.

      “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”

      now correct me if i get this totally wrong, but doesn’t that say “MMOBomb.com community” not “whatever game is being voted on at the time’s community”?

      they did this just fine, doesn’t matter if other games are supporting others, i can’t say i liked all the bribing for either side (airmech bribing for warframe vote, and nexon bribing anything that moves for mabi votes [that was a joke but come on, its nexon]) but there is nothing against them doing that. people seem to have completely forgotten what this vote was about. it’s what MMOBomb thinks of the games, not which game has the most active community on here.

  17. The vote being blind will skew the results. Without knowing the total there is no hype, there is no suspense, there is no drama. This waters down the whole competition as this hasn’t been done at all the whole competition. They should finish the competition with the same rules and set up as they did at the start. I just hate to see them screw over both fan bases to inspire one another to vote and see that their vote matters. Good job MMOBOMB! You officially look like chumps.

  18. Hope warframe wins final battle. Many gamers think warframe is some pay to win , mediocre game cause many revievers gave it 6 or so score. Im talking aboit Ign and gamestop and gametrailers.
    thay didnt checked all ingame features and only after playing it for 4-5 hrs made a review.
    thay dont understand that warframe is evolving evry week with constant updates and fixes.
    Hope Warframe wins so all haters see how good this game realy is.

    • Yeh! You can get literally everything in the game with only a few well placed runs, you don’t even need to farm for hours to get a permanent vanity item- lol!

      • what game were you playing? Becuase warframe takes a hell of a lot more runs; resources, blueprints, alerts, events, voids, derelicts. they all have dozens of possible rewards from several types of each. It is entirely impossible to get everything in “a few well placed runs”

        And i agree, many of the reviews are solely lacking in information about warframe, if they even played it, they didn’t play it long or they just sucked at it xD and yes you are correct, it has just recently just been out of “beta” and has been constantly evolving into a better and better game since day 1, which you will hear that from no reviews >.>

    • As someone who is a grandmaster founder with over 600 hours on Warframe and about 200 hours on Smite, my vote goes for Smite.
      Honestly while WF isn’t “Pay to win” spending money is close to a necessity to ever leave the early game, which is mostly why it got such low scores, like for most new players they don’t understand what weapons are good and bad, which frames to buy etc and can end up having to sell all of the hard earned gear.

      • As a non-founder veteran player with 800+ hours into the game, i can assure you that that’s bullshit and i’ve got up to mastery level 11 without expending a single dollar on the game, and when i did, only used it to Forma, potato, and XP boost >late game items<, vanity items like syandanas and helmets, colors and icons. You're full of shit, sir.

        • I’m really not though, you completely contradicted yourself here “without expending a single dollar” the you then go on to say what you bought with platinum which would have cost dollars.

          As it stands in Warframe right now there is horrible limitations set on players who don’t want to spend money, while De do help with the tatos after livestreams and the invasion/alert system there is still no way for F2P players to have a lot of weapons which causes a lot of players to leave the game.

          • You’re pretty daft, aren’t you?

            For 600+ hours on the game, you should understand better.
            Most people who play the game seem to use one or two Warframes most of the time and will only really use between 3 to 6 different weapons. Slots aren’t a big issue. The limitations are very few and mostly apply to cosmetics and as for early game, it’s not that hard to learn that in a video game where things are shooting at you that it would be wise to take cover so you don’t end up looking like Swiss cheese.
            By the way, if you want to use Platinum but have no money to purchase any, you can trade mods and the elusive/rare Prime parts for it. For a Rhino Prime chassis, you can currently buy 3 Warframe slots, 3 Catalysts/Reactors/Forma or 12 weapon slots. So that whole “new players can’t get more weapons” thing is total bullshit.
            It’s also not too hard to look at weapon stats or ask around to find what would suit you better.

            Now as for the contradictory thing, there is none. He said he got to MR11 without spending anything to help boost the progress. He spent it on cosmetics, Forma or Reactors and Catalysts which in no way help increase your Mastery Rank. The XP boost might, but you really have no idea what he used it for. It could’ve really just been used to level Forma’d weapons/frames but due to them being Forma’d, it no longer increases your Mastery Rank as they have already hit their maximum level.

            P.S: If you think money is close to a necessity to pass through/leave the early game, then you must suck pretty hard at it. I had no problem doing so. I’d be scared to bring you into a 30 minute T3 Survival run with me.

          • U can sell ingame stuff for platinum, ingame currency and buy everything u like and u not need to spend real cash.

      • 500H of gameplay and non founder here…
        I’ve never spent a dollar when I still a newcomer and here I’m now rank 11 silver seeker got my own plat from trading mods…
        It’s true I made some mistake when I’m still new,but game is about learning…
        What kind a newcomer who instantly know about for example how to forma and what does potato for? R u a retard?
        So u goddamn founder who think warframe is P2W should just give me ur founder status and uninstall the game…
        U’re a disgrace for every tenno on earth…

        • I’m the retarded one yet you can’t spell?
          And you’ve just given me another point. Lack of tutorial, as it stands in wf new players have no way of knowing what potatoes and formal are without help from elsewhere

          • As a fellow Grandmaster Founder, i must say….are you retarded? the tutorial is about gameplay, and you can read what any of the items do in the description of the item, be in the blueprint in the foundry, or just from the market. and as the other guy said, you can trade for plat with other players, so you truly have no reason to spend money on the game if you do not want to, supporting the company is just that, supporting the company. the game and the developers are there for the players, not for the money. i like their game, i like them, so i supported them so they can continue doing what they are doing,

            and just saying, but i’m about 90% sure he typed it that way on purpose.

    • Warframe is all about that grind and for the pay p2w factor you can sell rare maxed mods that sell for a good 50+ plat. Also buying a helmet for a certain character gives boosts to health and what not. But also they allow you to get those helms on certain alerts

  19. Looking forward to how this plays out. smite and warframe, two fighters ready to go at it. this won’t be a pve aoe monster smash like mabinogi, This is conclave vs arena style battle.

    Im expecting to see both sides pulling in alot of votes since both games are very popular.

  20. Ooh. Blind vote for the final round, huh?

    …Probably should’ve been done in every round from the start. It would have saved so much inter-community drama. =P

  21. Never played Smite but I hear its a good game so best of luck to you guys.

    That being said we in the Warframe community are gonna mop the floors with ya.

  22. Smite isn’t playing fair they’re using the weight of they’re official twitch channel by having the mods spam the poll link every 10 minutes in the chat

    • They fear us. They know of our numbers and are preparing their own. Let this be a fair and epic battle for the title of champion and wish luck to both sides!

    • Are you seriously that stupid? Warframe had obvious botting in the previous round. They got way, way more votes than in any previous poll. They spam the poll in-game. They group up with another unaffiliated game to vote.

      Are you just being ironically stupid?

      • Warframe has little advertising of this event at all. making official announcements in game chat like, once or twice throughout the entire ‘competition’, and a couple official forum threads.

        and players from other games have been voting for Warframe, not Warframe asking other games to vote.
        however, every single game in this competition has had some people making multiple votes, that’s nothing new.

  23. Warframe is ready for battle.

    I’d like to wish Smite the best of luck on this contest first off. Many of my fellow Tenno also play smite and we anticipate a good fun, community rousing contest.

  24. I have played many games beside mabi, but only mabi is the game I stayed with up to now because in my view, mabi is unique and better than other games that I ever played. However, reading all these commotions about this poll which I would not have even known or even cared for if not because of mabi’s presence in this competition, I gotta share some of my straight opinions: 1. This site was known by me because of mabinogi; 2. Even I love and play mabinogi but I definitely would not put my effort to come here to vote if nexon did not give us the x3AP event or some other events. Therefore, nexon or other game pulishers were right to give out all these events to motivate players to come vote it. They also make unawared players to know about this poll and this site. While doing this, they also make their own players to know about other games as well; 3. I will only vote for the game I like but not because of any other reasons. Therefore, not gonna give my vote for other games because it won over mabi or because it is competing with the game that passed mabi. I believe most people would do the same thing. Why? Because it is a waste of our time. 4. The games which ever won mabi should thank mabi and nexon because I am gonna have a look at their games and might try the games if I feel like it. Already read and look at Warframe around youtube and will definitely not gonna play it. Not at all what I like, though it is only my taste. Off topic, I am dead waiting for EQ Next, B&S and BD to come…

    • yea same here blade and soul ftw i just hope they gave some info as to when they think they will bring it to US/EU or something like at all any info whatsoever but oh well

  25. i wanna gongradulate mabi(with or without botting idc honestly that much)for the fight it was a great battle hope we will the war and honestly i am not gonna be suprised if smite wins never underestamate your opponet doing that might make u lost(in some cases) so good luck to both WF and Smite i am voting for WF as i did from the start of this thing and again no matter if there was botting or rewards if mabi won or whatever it was a good fight and i am glad some mabi will vote for wf i would personally do the same if mabi won(again idc if mabi was gonna win by botting or anything if they won i would vote for them in the finals)the fun part of all this for me is that even if mabi is old and all that i see so many positive comment of how unique of a game it is and all that,that i am thinking of trying it just cause everyone says the community is awesome there

  26. I’m guessing they are just trying to get this over with, they didn’t update the commentary or anything either. What did Warframe get on their last match-up, 8k? If smite pulls out the usual 16-18k they will lose to the ‘completely legit’ 50k votes Warframe pulled in this time.

    • Protip: Read mmobombs twitter feed before bitching at crap. both sides had botting but it was only very minor (hell, Mabi had more botting than WF in the end). after the illegitimate votes were removed Warframe won by just over 10k votes

  27. Honestly, the Mabi vs Warframe should be redone, and it should be only those two games voting. Airmech decided to be assholes and started a 2 on 1 in the very beginning. Only at the end did Nexon ask for help from the other Nexon games.

  28. Nexon NA community want to say thank you for the showdown & congratulate on warframe for winning we had a lots of fun during the event we hope we win the next showdown lol & yes Nexon is still doing the events.

    The final SMITE vs Warframe who will win ???

  29. I’m mabi fan and I wish mabi to win but I think warframe is good game.about other nexon games that help us it’s fair and many mabi players play vindi and mabi just like warframe and airmech.Yeah it’s shitty that mabi gives events if they win but ppl didn’t vote becaus of events they voted because they love their game.We have strong community too! But anyway it seems like warframe is going to win. You have my vote in finals but your not gonna need it your great too!

  30. I call bullsh*t on the Mabi vs Warframe. There was OBVIOUS botting going on, to the point that the botters were still going AFTER the voting had ended…

    • I do insist that you check your timezone before going any futher into the void. Also the bot vote percentage was removed in the final vote tally.

        • funny thing is, the botted votes they removed were mostly for mabinogi, not warframe, so you were right, there was boting, but your butthurt for the wrong reason.

    • Obvious? How was it obvious? Evidence shows that the Warframe community had links on their social media AND in-game to THIS poll.

      Don’t underestimate how many people play the game, nor should you underestimate the staff. I will not say DE is the best developers around, but they are some of the best F2P devs to stick around for, where Nexon should be the obvious problem developers to point out for reason of less fan support, despite all their decent games.

      • In an hour, it went up around 4k votes. In 15 minutes, it went up 1200 votes. There was a nearly constant stream of votes LITERALLY every second. There was an over 10% jump in who was leading overnight. I’m not necessarily saying that it was the Warframe community themselves that were botting, because I wouldn’t put it past the RO community to be butthurt still that the lost after all the botting /they/ did, but that big of a jump, and that many votes in a short period of time is suspicious as hell.

        Nexon has been plugging for the vote on Facebook and Tumblr daily, and that’s just on the Mabinogi page. They even pulled the fanbases of their other games in with incentives. Alot of the more popular Mabi blogs were pushing to remind people to vote too. Don’t try and say there was a lack of community awareness on Mabinogi’s part.

        • Some communities just feel more entitled to participate in events more than others. Other communities or yet alone people, Just see these events as pointless happenings. I’m not pointing fingers or lighting a fire under anyone, But some people just don’t care for the happenings of events and others really see it as a major happening.

        • no there was no lack of awareness, just warframe’s community is larger. and please stop going on about botted votes, its over, mabi lost, get over it. and fyi, most of the votes removed for botting were for mabi (yes i realize i’ve stated this already) you can check the mabinogi forums yourself if you still want to disagree, about 3k votes were removed from mabi. i forget the thread but you can look if its really important to you.

        • I probably won’t argue much further into this, because there really isn’t much to argue about something that already has been decided.

          MMObomb has the biggest say in this, because it’s their tournament. Mabinogi, according to MMObomb’s official twitter page, actually had more bot votes than Warframe.

          Funny plenty of people would say Mabinogi were botting their way through this competition according to all the comments on the other pages, just because they were winning. Now it’s your turn, no matter which game you rooted for, to accept that Warframe won.

          I don’t mean to discount any community sizes here, but all I know is that the staff of DE had a hand in us winning because votes shot up when the link got put on Nexus, Facebook, Twitter, Steam Group, and even in-game, where the majority of the people are.

  31. I play both games and both sides fought well however the way both communities acted was despicable. Warframe was so passive aggressive and spiteful at times it was so bad I’m not going playing warframe anymore. Mabinogi was insulting and very aggressive at times, especially because of a certain one individual who is now banned from our forums and probably has ruined his reputation in game. Mabinogi wins in my opinion and in my heart and thats all that matters, this contest was a test of our community and we’re quite a force, if only voting had lasted a week like it was supposed to. I will be voting for Warframe next round as my last act of support for the game. Good luck everyone.

    • I find it very mature of you the way you handled the community. And though i’m sorry to hear you’re no longer playing warframe, I’m greatful you will be supporting it in the final round. You have my apologies and thanks.

      • not a warframe player(used to be though quit cause it got repetitive for me) but respect to u my friend and although i used to play wf and dont play it anymore i apologize as a guy who used to play wf from any bad/insulting/agressive comment said from a wf player as far as mabi vs wf and it was a good fight botting or no botting overall.You got my respect and good luck for whoever u decide to vote(wf or smite)

  32. I know Mabinogi lost but they did a great job.
    The reason why Nexon NA player base support Mabinogi is not because of the events that Nexon gave us it is because we support each other if u look on the forums u will see. We been voting for Nexon games at the start of the showdown before Nexon did the events.
    u guys do not know if we Nexon NA player base cheated or not so stop with this bs.

    Both games are good but for community I pick Mabinogi.

  33. So even the Nexon Alliance was unable to beat Warframe + Airmech? Smite is going to have some serious competition.

    I hope its just going to be a pure Warframe vs. Smite this time.

      • Airmech pretty much fallen on the bad publicity campaign RO players did agains Mabinogi, regardles being RO the biggest cheater on this tournament, people ended blaming Mabinogi as the culprit (and everyone forgot about RO massive botting) . But who knows, that douchebag dev on carbongames is such an hypocrite he surely will say “i’m just supporting warframe, wasn’t pointing against mabinogi” and give a new reward. So far, they are the ones who should be DQ for the next tournament any time soon, for pointing false accusations from a DEV.

    • probably will be pure Warframe vs SMITE
      just wanna check,and laught, on how many votes the final fight can gather…

  34. You darned Botters! D:< You didn't get us up to 100K votes on the Mabi vs. Warframe. x3 I wanted to see 100K or more. x3 You got close though, 91K votes. x3

  35. It’s sad that sore losers have to go against the game that beat them instead of simply admitting it was better and being behind it.

    If my game got beat, I’d want the game that beat us to go all the way so we got beat by the best.

    But all you sore losers gotta go support the loser Warframe. . .

    and over 30k votes overnight in favor of warframe is absolute bulls***

    • Agreed. x3 Warframe’s a good game, I like it, but mabi got my vote. If we Lose to Warframe, I’m going to vote them to the top. x3

  36. This tournament has been tainted since Day 1, I’m not surprised that the anarchy between gaming communities is still going. MMOBomb wins and everybody else loses, people should take heed of that.

    • What i find the funniest is that most of these games offering bribes are so aggressive over it, and here is warframe about to go to the finals with basically a “who the hell cares” attitude xD in fact the only reason i learned warframe was in this vote at all was because mabinogi posted the bribe saying if they win players get a 2x everything event

      • Yeah same here. If games weren’t advertising bribes, They may have pulled ahead and changed the whole outcome of the tourny.

    • we also win
      we get to know games that we did not know
      i’ll try warframe, i’ve been looking for a second game to play
      time for some fresh air

      Mabinogi player here
      love my game, but i’m happy we lost to a good game
      You have my vote Warframe
      but if those Airmech guys get into this again, im going for Smite, sorry.

  37. My game isn’t winning, wahhh.
    Get over it.
    My game is wunning, best game ever.
    Get over it also.

    Mabi seems to care more about this voting then Warframe does. There’s really nothing on the site and very few posts from DE about voting. I have only seen “Redtext” say anything about it once. I could be wrong. DE has other things on their mind and are working on updates for their game. If they win, maybe they will do something, if they don’t, I don’t see them caring much.

    Win or lose neither make the game better or worse. Other games that lost early on are still good games (not all, just depends what you like), but them winning/losing doesn’t change the fact that you play them.

    Who ever wins this – good job. Who ever doesn’t – good run. Both are still going to be good games in the end.

    • nicely said. thank you. i’m not sure how stating a simple opinion on the vote being a player and fan of both games since basically day one turned into to an argument, but well, welcome to the internet xD

    • Nexon cares about this but the players don’t care. (Bribing almost every Nexon game)

      The Warframe community cares but its developers don’t care. (Lack of official announcement and no reward for Warframe if they win).

      • They gave official announcements in-game and there are rumors that Warframe is getting a prize for beating Mabinogi.

  38. I play both mabinogi and warframe, both since the beta in fact. honestly, i have to give it to warframe. since the beta warframe has grown and grown and gotten nothing but better, however with mabi, mostly thanks to nexon, has only gone hill, in difficult, content, and community. if this was mabi 5 years ago, id say mabi would be the winner, but with the nerfing of nearly everything, their basic rape of the service system, which only happened in the NA server, how many dupers, scammers hackers ect. there are in the player base now. and the constantly repeated events year after year, mabi has just gone stale. it is one of the most unique games ive ever played and as far as rpgs go it is by far my favorite, but just between these two games, id say warframe is the better game with a better community and better (far far far better) company. all i hope for is a fair fight, which bribing the other 4 games on their site isnt exactly fair. just saying.

    • If AirMech would of stayed out of this, we could of had a fair fight. Mabi players were pissed because it was 2 against 1. We wanted a fair 1 vs 1 competition, blame AirMech for this entire mess.

      • I see you did your research, if you took time to look up why airmech said they are standing by warframe, on twitter they said that most airmech players are also warfrmame players, and in the forums, they are supporting warframe because warframe beat them in a previous vote and are honoring the victory by pledging support, rather than being butthurt. also you cant blame people for voting, this vote is open to everyone, i dont however, agree with bribing to get votes, but mabinogi, or really just nexon, is bribing fives games to get votes, warframe has bribed no one, not even their own players, win or loss warframe players get nothing, and seeing how warframe clearly still has a lead, they dont need to bribe.

        • I did do the damn research. The AirMech developer is a complete asshole, and only got involved because they thought Mabinogi was cheating.

          He should of stayed the **** out, and leave us to our poll.

          • Oh? and have you any proof of this? was it said anywhere publically where anyone can view it like say twitter, or the official forums of the said games? or is this just your opinion?

          • Hmm, I can’t seem to reply to you, so replying to my old post will have to do.

            And it’s mentioned on the AirMech forums

            General Discussion subforum.
            Thread Title: If Warframe advances, what Head pet?
            Page 8, a few posts down.

            I can’t supply the link because MMOBomb will just remove it.

          • i see the comment about their competition not playing fair, but that doesn’t mean they cheated, and a few posts down he does state that ” So either to honor them as an opponent, or just because you are greedy and want a free pet, vote for Warframe!” i didnt really feel any malice or anything toward mabinogi, just “they beat us so lets help them win” kind of thing.

          • Mabinogi WAS playing fair, the botted votes was from Ragnarok Online, and because some idiot asked 4chan for about 150 botted votes for Mabi.

          • yeah i don’t doubt mabi played fair, as far as voter fraud, but it is nexon’s bribery just to win a pointless competition i’m saddened at xD and even something like that can cast doubt on a competitor, even if the competitor themselves didn’t have anything to do with it. long story short, airmech has players who are also warframe players, they lost to warframe and decided to openly support warframe, nexon responded, on its own, with bribing its other games for votes. and because all this is in the open is the only reason we are even talking about this, players from all the games who lost could still be voting, but doesn’t matter because they aren’t public about it.

        • Warframe only has the lead right now because of botting. I’ve been keeping an eye on it and hitting refresh on the results page occassionally, and an hour ago it was 47/53 with just under 75k votes. Now, it’s at 46/54 with 79k votes. I also wouldn’t be surprised at all if Ragnarok was voting for Warframe out of spite, or even if they’re the ones botting for Warframe. When I looked last night before going to bed, Mabi was in the lead by about 4% and it was actually pretty close, but now it has doubled in the opposite direction. I’m looking at the announcements/news on the Warframe site, and there is nothing on there about this. Nexon’s bribery is simply drawing attention to the fact that this exists, and actually giving their players incentive to take 5 seconds and go and vote.

          • Warframe has had announcements in game periodically, and has made a few announcements on their twitter. and when i looked yesterday warframe had the lead by a good 5%, so it apparently swayed in mabinogi’s favor by 9%, then back to what it is now, and has stayed. I’ll admit the votes are going up steadily but that doesn’t mean botting, and because warframe is in the lead also doesn’t mean it is their side doing it. and yeah warframe hasn’t said anything about it on their site, they don’t need to, and nexon isn’t doing it to draw attention they have been offering bribes since day 1, and now they are bribing their other games just to win. if it were to just bring attention that this existed they wouldn’t have bribed their other games who were already in the competition and lost, in fact they wouldn’t have bribed at all, they would have said “hey i you want our game to win this meaningless competition go vote” not “if you vote you get all this cool stuff when we win”

          • Rising steadily? Since my last comment, it has risen another 1200 votes. Since I typed that, another 37 votes. Just go and sit on the page and hit refresh. It’s not a steady rise in votes, it’s a CONSTANT rise in votes. Votes rising that steadily just screams botting.

          • as i said, yes i noticed it, but it doesn’t mean botting, it could be there are a lot of people who play the games or on twitter/reddit/facebook/ect voting. they don’t have to wait minutes at a time to have one vote. and it’s also not clear that those votes are going to warframe alone. warframe has nearly 8 million players registered WORLD WIDE, it can easily be said that they are getting more votes because they have more players, around the world, logging in constantly and seeing the in game red text asking them to vote. and you just contradicted yourself saying it wasn’t rising steadily, they saying it was rising too steadily, care to make up your mind?

  39. I dunno who’s voting for who, but there is definitely some botting going on in that poll. I hit refresh, and the number jumped up 30 something votes in roughly 20 seconds…

    Also, despite Nexon telling their entire fanbase to vote for Mabi, I’m assuming there are a lot of people from other communities (like the ones Mabi beat) voting for Warframe simply to vote against Mabi.

    I’ve played both Warframe and Mabi, and Mabi has my vote. Warframe is a lot more grindy, and the missions consist of getting into a group of 4 random people and running through, killing everything, then running to the exit, possibly with an escort or fetch quest thrown in. It’s a rather simple formula that gets old and boring incredibly fast. At least with Mabi when you’re spamming dungeons, you still need to be on your toes so you don’t make a bad move and get yourself killed. Mabi also has the bigger sense of a community, since when you’re not in a mission there’s an actual world to explore, not just sitting in a global chat room…

    • And after hitting refresh again roughly an hour later and seeing that the votes went from being around 75k votes, to being 79k votes, with Warframe steadily gaining a lead…

      • When you see big jumps it all comes down to how each game advertises this event. For example Warframe’s famous ‘Red-Text’ reminds the global chat to vote every 2 or so hours.

        Or maybe it could all come down to simply one player waking up, looking at the polls and starting a huge conversation will world chats that sparks interest with many players, getting them to vote.

        Sure foul play has happened and could continue to happen but if its really that bad mmobomb would catch on quick as they have done so in previous tier polls.

  40. What the shit… the votes doubled overnight? thats 30,000 votes, and surprise surprise Mabi is now ahead by quite a few %. When are these people going to be disqualified for cheating?!

    • It isn’t cheating, Nexon just put out events to all of their other games if mabi wins. And before you say that that’s cheating, what about Airmech, Ragnarok, and all the vengeance voting going on against mabi anyways?

      • Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait.

        Warframe got Ragnarok Online to help them now?

        So…. now it’s:

        Mabinogi + Vindictus + MapleStory vs. Warframe + AirMech + Ragnarok Online + Dragon Nest?

        What does SMITE and Path of Exile think about all of this?

        • This might be a bit overconfident, but we have gotten here through simple awareness on reddit and the forums. If we got Hi-Rez to do some promotion we could likely take on the winner alone.

        • Just note the support from external games for warframe were ultimately unintentional and were done so at their own choice (had nothing to do with Warframe devs & officials) whereas Nexons entire game range ‘bribery’ is done by… well.. nexon.

          We’ve just got to remember here that as far as warframe players know there aren’t even any rewards granted for winning this tournament, it’s just pure dedication to the game

    • Funny, how 4 hours later, and the votes are reversed and Mabi is suddenly behind 6%. Just wait on the poll results page and hit refresh. The votes are steadily rising at around 1 vote a second. Somebody is cheating, that’s for certain. It’s hard to say who though at the moment… the poll still has another 5 hour left. We’ll see what happens…

  41. it amazes me that they just cant accept who wins such matches requires a good community based
    so if there is one guy saying ERMAGERD WARFRAME IS LOSING AGAINST A SHITTY ANIME GAME then you know the community from warframe is shit i played mabinogi as did i play warframe too theyre both rly good games and both of them are quite unique games too PS:if it is botted mmobomb would remove the botters like they did at the ragnarok VS mabi

    • So you’re condemning the entire 7million+ warframe community for one immature fans comment? cheers for that. Should i be condemning Nexons playerbase for your opinions?

  42. ECa i dont know but when i had an issue and i reported it they. did take there time but it got fix with a bow on top…aka nx for time wasted… MAbi all day guys lets not hate… the mach is going good

    • “That dumb anime game” has a better community than you think, most of our players are +5 year veterans, and new players are joining everyday, we welcome newbies with honor.

      • saw your name and reminded me of sora from digimon for some reason lol though u should know that although i doubt its from there and yea ik its irrelavant with the topic but oh well

      • Where as the Warframe newbies get dropped into missions with Vets and get left behind to be lost while they run through and kill everything in a single shot.

        I’m a Mabi vet. I’ve been in since Day 1 of Open Beta. It’s one of the only MMOs that I keep coming back to after taking a hiatus to be distracted by other games.

  43. I played Mabi for a few years, until their servers got RAIDED…
    THEN my account got hacked, and they WOULD NOT do anything.. I had GOOD money into that game.
    It took them 1 month to even respond to me..
    They keep loosing employees..and you never talk tot he SAME ones..

      • We’re not really sure, but they’re viewing it as a Win/Win situation. If Warframe wins, they’ve done their job in having a game stop Nexon, and if Mabinogi wins, well, they get free stuff.

        I checked Combat Arms, and they don’t seem to care… in all honesty… it’s pretty much 3 vs. 3 now. The 3 games that Nexon was entered with (Mabinogi, MapleStory, and Vindictus) vs. Warframe, AirMech, and some help from Dragon Nest.

    • thats a lie. its the power of the bribery you NEXON SKOOM but anyway it doesn’t change the fact that nexon its just a shitty company which only american players can play most of their games i bet if i can ask on vindictus forums if i can play their game from dominican republic and them my account get banned while some kiddie nexon players are saying here that their community is “kind” with everyone what hypocrisy (and yes I DID THAT DURING THE CB OF DFO.

      • Hey now that wasn’t nice. :C I understand your frustration of being banned because of being outside of nexons admissible IP’s as I’ve been banned from overseas mmos for having an american account as well lol. However Nexon covers Canada, America, and for mabinogi only (I think) Europe. I won’t say more then this our community has united under one banner and I’m happy to see everyone working toward a common goal for once. Also on a side note the dragons nest community wants you guys to win and Atlantica online isen’t participating.

      • When it comes to any game it’s not always the discretion of the company on where its game is allowed to be played from. Sometimes it’s the rules, laws, or regulations of the country, province, etc that govern the fact at all. There is more than one Nexon. A lot of the games come from Korea first before they decide whether or not they want their games to be run in any of their Nexon branches. The Nexon that is being dealt with here is Nexon NA (North America). Vindictus also includes Australia as a country that can play with Canada and America and the other places that are included in their grouping.

        I agree that Nexon has a lot of room for improvement, but as it is still owned by Nexon Korea, they are somewhat limited on what things can and can’t be done. The staff on the Nexon games is horribly low, and as such their customer service suffers.

        I play Mabi and Warframe, but I stand by Mabi as I have since Closed Beta. Sure the graphics aren’t “the best” but I believe that both Mabi and WF offer a unique kind of game play that you don’t see replicated in all the other games of similar genera. I wish both games good luck and hope that we can keep the proxy and botting vote out, because in the end they are just going to get removed anyways.

  44. mabi votes are legit, this time all nexon games are collaborating on voting since Airmech’s Cofounder announced he will be giving free mounts to his players if they double vote for warframe to beat us….

    • Yes, because two games, (Airmech) which has given us say 1-2k votes via “bribing” and Warframe which hasn’t “Bribed” at all = 5 games, all being “bribed” to vote. It’s warframe vs the entirety of Nexon. Not Warframe vs Mabinogi.

      • Going to clear something up.

        Atlantica Online (a game in Nexon’s line up) isn’t participating with the voting. Dragon Nest is actually iffy and voting half and half out of spite towards Nexon.

        • which is still less than needed to beat mabi considering wf is “alone”sorta speak where mabi gets like help from 20 games lol but i guess thats the way it is overall if mabi wins or wf wins doesnt really matter how the win was achieved as long as its “legal”

  45. Hate to say it because I like both games, but the Mabi/Warframe poll is looking like its gonna need a recount or two, I realize its the Semi-finals but the numbers aren’t right at all given previous polls. That being said, I hope the MMOBomb guys handling the poll are ready for a late nighter. ;p Whichever one of you wins, you -better- take out Smite or I’ll throw pies at you!

  46. well i play mabinogi since 2008, and i never had to grind. i seen some ppl trying to bot but since the game is base on pure tactics its impossible so over time bots has been but done now o .o and yes nexon is bad. but the game in over all is awesome. come one what other game allows you use fireball(inter magic ) while taking on an enemy using fight them melee. yeah…..

    • I feel bad for you, the game you like is giving a prize for making another game lose, even though they are not even in the running anymore.

      • Airmechs support is solely based on the fact that Warframe and AAirmech are from the same division (wizard) making them ‘allies’ Airmech couldn’t make it to the semi finals so they want to at least see their division win.

  47. Smite and POE is a tough call but since Smite does not want to support my country and not get oceanic servers then i did not support it in this poll.

  48. voting for Warframe and Smite mabi is too outdated and i dont like it honestly neither do i like POE not my cup of tea GO WF GO SMITE WOHOO

  49. It hurt my heart to vote against Path of Exile. It really should have been Smite vs PoE for the final two.
    I’m surprised Warframe has so many votes. It’s a much closer poll than I would have imagined. Is it getting bribed too? I know whenever I was online in Mabi people constantly spammed links to the poll in every channel and I recall there being prizes for mabi winning rounds.

  50. Keep in mind this is a contest about motivating a community to vote for its game, games like LoL which have huge playerbases but awful community and trolls everywhere can’t be expected to do well. Though a social game like Mabi being a real contender isn’t a huge surprise either. I love both Mabi and Warframe, I can’t help but vote for Mabi now, but if the Tenno take this battle I’ll be supporting them in the end. ;p

  51. Mabinogi is good in approach and ideas. But horrible glitchy grind fest bat man. Also 0 population and Bad publisher. Mass bots.

    In fact, all these games known for bots… And WarFrame had a facebook announcement rallying the bottom of the barrel mass fan boi ps4 voters en mass (as bad as GW2 bois)…
    Moral of story. Mmobombs vote game f2p thingy is da fail.

  52. It’s really been fun so far. The Warframe and Mabi communities really are going all out and keeping it civil and hilarious between them. Oddly enough, even in the official forums and not just the fan sites. If only things had turned out similar between RO and Mabi, regardless of the people who compromised the polls on both sides. Friendly rivalry >>>> bitter competitive flame wars anyday.

  53. I’ve played both games. I think both are wonderful.

    However, I think Mabinogi should win.
    I like Warframe. Graphics, it wins hands down.
    However: in player interaction, music, community…
    I find that Mabinogi crushes Warframe.
    Warframe, judging by numbers, would crush Mabi.
    But, hey. Mabi’s strong.

  54. It seems like things are even in the Mabinogi vs WarFrame poll 50% vs 50% who will win this match is giving everyone the rush! Vote for your game! May the best f2p win!

  55. It seems like mabi is asking other nexon games or support because airmech is telling them to vote for warframe this is however unfair since nexon has way more games than their company so means more people voting and mabi is now voting Path of Exile to make sure smite doesn’t go further and plan to kill Path of Exile. Smite votes are coming in though. Will Mabi survive or will it go down the drain! Some people are getting suspicious about the votes but don’t worry its just the early birds special!
    One tactic has been discovered by letus that they will slow down votes until the end and RAISE the votes high. Always people using bar codes to make multiple votes? Is it not allowed or it isn’t?
    More tactics will be discover soon
    I am out!

  56. Everyone who lost up against mabi the horrible game should help warframe win the game is just sooo horrible *shivers*.

    • I’m not complaining about your remark.

      Your grammar is so horrible, it really would be good for the nazis to come after you. Yes, it hurt my eyes and brain that much.

      PD: People should learn to use punctuations.

      • Really man?really?just cause his grammar aint perfect and he apperently hates mabi and u love it doesnt mean u can take his bad language as a motive to make fun of him and mock him.i have nothing against mabi but u sir are being an asshole

        • I say it had nothing to do with his remark.

          You know, it took me my good 2 minutes to finally understand what he wrote. Even you are using periods. One comma would help people understand what you’re saying, so please… For all that’s good in this world watch your grammar.

          • well i get that but u were being kind of an asshole even if u had nothing to do with his remark anyways noones perfect either way u(and i guess most mmobombers here)just know better english than his thats all i just got all pumped up when people pick on other people just of their english i understand its an international language and all but still….

  57. Mabi and Warframe are going to be locked in a deathmatch.

    Smite seemed to get first blood. Let’s hope we can keep this up.

  58. Well, now you all get to see the terrifying machine that is the Mabi community! >:D We may start slow, but think of us like a diesel train. We start slow, but can’t be stopped easily! >:D Mwahahahahaha!

  59. Both Mabinogi and Warframe are pedalling to death… wish mabinogers pulled out like before.

    I still think that SMITE has the upper hand tho.

    • What? Why leave? How DO we leave anyways(if we wanted to)? You say warning, but its not like anything bad will happen if we dont leave right? It’s just a poll

        • Milletians might bleed, but they can’t die.
          I’m impressed, really.Seven of the Tenno against a single Milletian would be a fair fight, and that’s what seems to be happening.
          So come, Meg, pull my blades towards your body. Your magnets will be crushed in the face of mere wooden puppets.
          Face me, Loki, and see the Blades of the Gods slice your skin again and again, always rising, never missing. The Goddess laughs as you cry.
          And come, Excalibur. The blades of all of Arthur’s nights couldn’t resist the blast of an Alchemist’s cylinder.
          So watch as we come, and march, and watch as our brothers ride with blades drawn and magic flashing.
          We’ll watch as bullets fly, laugh as they whistle past and stop dead when we wave our hands,
          And we’ll watch you die at the hands of Giants and Elves.

          • Seven? That’s a laugh… Rhino cares not for your puny logic.

            All who face Rhino die before they can realize what’s going on… Your goddess will not save you.

          • Rofl. A single Trinity armed with Boltor Prime is far more than enough.
            She’s invincible, after all.

    • We shall not surrender, may Lymilark bless us all.

      “Let me fix your gun ninja soldier … oops my hand slipped … ”

  60. This is bullshit. League of Legends wins hands down. You cant call a game better than the other by this voting nonsense. the fanbase sizes are a huge factor.

    You can say. most popular mmo according mmobomb fans, but not best mmo period.

      • I find this ironic. League of Legends lost in the quarterfinals to Path of Exile. A pretty legitimate loss. Dota 2 lost to Ragnarok Online right out the gate. What’s your excuse?

    • As a Smite fan who used to play LoL, LoL deserves to be out. You shouldn’t mention the fanbase sizes because LoL actually has one of the biggest fanbases of all of the games in the world. They just won’t stick up for the game.

      LoL isn’t even an mmo…

      • dude, this tournament isnt that big of a deal sure fanbase is working a lot here, but PLAYERbase is diffrent, its not like LoL players are not standing up for thier game, and LoL is one of the biggest (if not) MMOs out there and its the best if not the F2P MMO

        • Did you really call LoL an MMO even though it was stated that it isn’t an MMO on the comment you were replying to?

          I don’t even…

      • dude, Smite isn’t an MMO either. and yes LoL is the biggest game atm but it doesn’t mean folk will vote for it, or they may not even know this site.

  61. 😀 i hope ppl in mabinogi would start voting faster so we can get down to business
    but yeah warframe is not a easy one to beat but we still have hope to make to final~

  62. Mabinogi deserves to win, but it also deserves to be remade.
    I wish Nexon would stop with ‘Mabinogi 2!’ ‘Mabinogi Heroes!’ which is actually NOTHING like the actual Mabinogi. All the content of Mabinogi in a new engine, new graphics, less lags, less bugs, new combat system, and you’ve got an ideal MMORPG right there. Make it cost 50 dollars, I’m sure no one would care.

    Smite completely deserves to win as well.
    Smite>Mabinogi>Path of Exile>Warframe

    • Toxic comment is toxic. A decade old game that needs to be remade should win over a recent game that’s constantly getting updates, hell, right after this round is over WF is getting another major update.

      Also, Vindictus only seems to have taken some Mab lore, kinda glad NexonNA was just smart enough to change the name away from Mabinogi Heroes, if only they fixed some of the quest/level desync while they were at it.

  63. “Mabi, Mabi, Mabi, Mabi. You’ve only been attacking, the auxillary games… DID YOU REALLY BELIEVE, IT WOULD BE THIS EASY?!”

    • I wouldn’t underestimate Mabi if I were you~

      There is a reason why I am helping Warframe instead of Mabi this time. xD

      You will see a struggle over the next few days, and the winner is unclear even to me.

  64. Huh, Warframe’s beating Mabi. Well, it’s still only the first day. I wish you luck, Space Ninjas. You’re really going to need it. XD

    • mabinogi is the most unique mmo you can find espeacily when it was released at 2004 some of the systems mabinogi has wont be found in any other mmo

      • Im a little curiuos about something..people keep saying on here that mabinogi is a unique MMOrpg game out today. How so? It reminds me of something I played on original nintendo back in the early 90s when i was 20. have the players of that game gotten trapped in some sort of time vortex in which they only experience games from the 90s? Have the players of that game played any modern day rpg’s or MMOs on the market since 2005? its something my children would of enjoyed, when they were 12. its no wonder it lost to a more modern game with better graphics, and smoother gameplay.

        • While its graphics may be terrible by modern standards, it may have a complete lack of physics, often lag terribly, and every time an update is released, new, major glitches are created, I agree that the game is very unique. The composing system alone is something I’ve only seen in a few other games. The combat is quite different than any other MMO I’ve played, and the leveling and rebirth system is something you don’t find too often. Even the atmosphere of the community is different, so much so that many people (Including me) play the game just because of the community. Also, I HAVE played many modern day MMOs, both free and payed for, but so far none of them have kept me playing for over a month. On the other hand, I’ve been playing Mabinogi for about 4 years. IN CONCLUSION: It may not be for everyone, but that doesn’t make it terrible or outdated.

      • the reason you won’t find its “unique mechanics” in any other MMO out today is because its outdated, old, and slow. Theres a reason modern video games aren’t written that way any more,,,the market improved, perhaps mabinogi should try it some time. but, what do you expect from a game its own parent company in Korea doesn’t even acknowledge.

      • Warframe Modded to beat Mabinogi =_=
        It went from 50k votes to 65k votes in one hour, then 65k to 90k in a day. I don’t see why they don’t double check it.

    • Since Mabinogi is winning I will be helping Warframe as promised.




        • Well Mabinogi was winning at the start which means I have to help Warframe, and I normally don’t switch sides once I am set on helping one side.

          Warframe being the only community capable of stopping the Mabi community in its tracks, but that’s only if the Warframe community unites and bands together.

          Mabi already having the advantage of having nearly its entire playerbase fully alerted and aware of the polls during the battle against RO, thanks to the help of certain individuals within the community.

          In the end all those players who became aware of the poll had remained, and devestated PSO2, which is why I was more worried about Warframe but also curious as to what I can do about it against this unstoppable monster I have created.

          If Mabi beats Warframe there will be no chance for Smite or POE of winning against Mabinogi.

          Warframe is the only community capable of beating Mabinogi but that’s only if its unified.

          Sure Mabi is losing now thanks to Warframe’s unification of their community and the announcement on its wikia page, but do not underestimate Mabi.

          Good luck to you guys at Mabi though! I am certain you can win this without me, even though I am currently working against you right now. 🙂

          • I mean at least the Warframe community and my clan and alliance appreciates my efforts. Q ^Q

            Consider this revenge I guess~

          • Hey, I appreciate it too, and I’m on Mabi’s side. XD I want a good fight. and my fellow Tenno are gonna give Mabi the best fight yet! 😀 That’s right, I’m a Milletian and a Tenno too. Just on the other side of the battle. XD

          • Currently it is not only the Warframe community uniting, but I believe many AirMech players like me are currently supporting Warframe in this battle against Mabi, as encouraged by CarbonJames.

            Let this be a clean, epic and fair fight! 😀

          • Have you read what you’re saying yourself? Clearly boting votes with at least a few proxies. Did you read, much less have sense of, the tournament rules? Spamming votes to that extent is a violation, even if your IP is blocked. MMOBomb said 4 votes from one location is fine and all, but they won’t know they’re actually getting thousands from one location, just with a cloaked IP address. Please people, use your brains.
