What was that third voting page for exactly? The one that didn't specify a category.

I believe it voted for City of Heroes in both categories (I'd assume ALL categories it was nominated for). That's what it did for me, as I'd double check by refreshing afterward.

I have to admit that I'm not all that keen about "most classic"... it's like, "Oh, yeah, that old game was old, but kinda cool", you know what I mean?
Don't get me wrong... I am pleased that we were first in that as well as 3rd (but really 1st) for the "best community".
I'm just so sick of CoH being dead and dealing with people who talk about CoH as though it was some older, unpopular thing... it was a vibrant, innovative and unique modern video game.
Again, I'm pleased and it is certainly a classic for all time... but it's so not a standard "classic" old game that isn't good enough to be considered "best game" without the word "classic" in front of that award.
It was the best damn game in 2012. Not just the most classic...

Haha... okay, I just had to mention that. I'm good now.  :P

That is indeed what it did. The interesting thing, which I edited into the OP, was that if you clicked it first, you couldn't vote on the category pages (giving 1 vote per category). But if you voted at each individual category, and then the main game page, you could get multiple votes in (2 per category).

Edit: I think we should certainly follow Rae's example and get a few press releases out there. This is nothing but good publicity.

Very true but I find it ironic that the only game they published that made a top 3 showing was the game they axed.

Well it was the only game whose community cared enough to vote and vote often was the game they axed.  Would we have bothered if we weren't trying to make a statement?

Naa, we'd just be raising $10k in charity money instead.  8)

Probably not. *shrug* The real test will be if CoH is on next year's poll (Star Wars Galaxies was on this year's, so why not?) and if we do as well as this year.


This can also be unstickied. I think we made our point.

After two responses talking about the rewards that MMOSite was giving its members for voting, I finally got a PM regarding the bribes:

Quote from: MMOSite Admin nichole
Oh, I see.MMOsite has cut the cheat vote already. We could do nothing to some players if they just vote agame for reward, as we couldn't konw which one is vote for favor and which one is vote for reward. What's more, the game offical afford the reward, not MMOsite and we do not have the right to prevent game offical do something for their own game.

Doubtful; that looks fairly typical of a lot of internet posting style I've seen that is very English-as-first-language. It's just rather stream-of-consciousness (which is a so-called "writing style" that I wish Faulkner were MALIGNED in school for "inventing," rather than for which he is lauded by English teachers who would throw a hissy fit at the dreadful grammar and utter illegibility of it if a student turned in such tripe).

That's the worst of the messages I received; the others were reasonable, if missing a few capital letters.

All these years I thought I was the only person in the country who loathed Faulkner's style.

I never grasped the double-think necessary to view him as a great writer.

Thanks for making my day.
