The winner for GameBorder’s user was Shaiya, a new free fantasy mmorpg. Here is the top 10 chart:

Che succede? Nulla, soltanto un fatto che e’ ovvio ormai da un bel po’: i MMORPG F2P in alcuni casi possono competere ad armi pari, se non sconfiggere, i piu’ blasonati titoli commerciali.
Sarebbe interessante che qualche sito importante (WarCry, MMORP.com, Allakhazam o IGN Vault) creasse un premio nel quale F2P e P2P si scontrino tra di loro. Ci sarebbe da ridere. O da piangere, a secondo del proprio punto di vista.
