My own personal opinion based 'MMORPG championship 2019' continues with match 3: World of Warcraft VS Runescape 3.
For those that don't want to watch, here's the round breakdowns:
GRAPHICS AND STYLE: Runescape 3 has made great strides in recent years with the new graphics engine, and the improved textures and skybox do make the game look lovely, but warcraft achieved something monumental, it created and then stole a graphics style, no game can look blocky or chunky without being called a wow clone, and becoming so strongly known for style you become that styles owner, is impressive.
GRAPHICS AND STYLE WINNER: World of Warcraft.
THE LEVELING PROCESS: World of warcraft is all about the endgame, and while the leveling from 1 – 120 may be quick, it's not immensely fun, but Runescape is all about the leveling, the game is literally getting from 1 to max, and for this reason, it wins.
THE LEVELING PROCESS WINNER: Runescape 3.
STORY AND LORE: Runescape 3 does have an impressive amount of story and lore within it and the 'godwars' storyline is still one of my favorite in any game, and i've read all the novels, but warcraft is on another level when it comes to history and ingame lore, books, comics, games and a Hollywood film, no one beats wow for lore.
STORY AND LORE WINNER: World of Warcraft.
COMBAT MECHANICS: I like Runescapes old combat system, the click and wait, tick-manipulation wasn't complex but it was beautiful in its simplicity, warcraft however excelled in complexity, with so many unique elements for each class. But, the newer updated, which seek to make runescape more complex with action abilities, and dumb wow down by pruning class choices, mean both combat styles meet somewhat in the luke-warm middle, away from what made them great, and for this reason, the combat round ends in a draw.
COMBAT MECHANICS WINNER: Draw.
DUNGEONS AND RAIDS: Runescape not only has some great PVE encounters, but an entire skill called dungeoneering it dedicates to the art of diving into a randomly generated dungeons and using all your skills to survive, and I personally really enjoy it.
World of Warcraft however, boasts 100+ dungeons, 43 raids and some of the highest quality pve encounters of all time.
DUNGEONS AND RAIDS WINNER: World of Warcraft.
PLAYER VS PLAYER: World of Warcraft has war mode, fight anyone from the other faction anytime, and I enjoy the feeling of faction pride this brings, while battlegrounds may be lacking, the feeling of 'Horde VS Alliance' is alive and well.
Runescape killed 'darkscape', and this, I cannot forgive.
PLAYER VS PLAYER WINNER: World of Warcraft.
WINNER: World of Warcraft.
Both are giants in the mmorpg world, and while both have strayed from what they started as, OSRS and WOW Classic are just around the corner, the live versions of the games however, wow remains the king.
