During the past 30 days 200,000 people from all over the planet voted in the audience award, quadrupling last year’s record. The open categories as well as Browser MMOs were the center of attention. In the end, GoodGame Studios’ “Big Farm” and “Empire” together with Ubisoft’s “The Settlers Online” were most popular with the players, winning multiple categories each. Main sponsor GameGenetics announced it would be giving a special prize to the three games that get the most votes across all categories.
“Congratulations to ‘The Settlers Online’, ‘Good Game Big Farm’ and ‘Desert Operations’! Each of them is getting a marketing package of 333 user registrations,”
The jury voting was even more exciting. Some categories were undecided, so the jurors had to do run-off votes after the official end of the voting phase. Eventually, they voted for a few underdogs, bringing lots of variety to the list of winners.
“I’m extremely happy about all the positive feedback the award is getting. With the amount of votes exceeding our biggest expectations the ‘MMO of the Year’ is now by far the biggest honor for massively-multiplayer online games. Many thanks to our sponsors for their active support, to everybody who participated in the audience voting and to our jurors of course! Congratulations to all winners!” said Christian Justus, organizer of the event.
