Don't give it a second thought
I'm proud that we're on the map but what the other two game developers are doing seems very wrong to me.
Knight Online seems less bad with the "If we win; we'll do events" route but what Microvolts is doing seems completely reprehensible: "We'll give you money for voting for us."
I've sent two email to MMOsite's PR person @:

It has come to my attention that the makers of the Microvolts game are paying off their community in order gain more votes for the awards.http://www.microvolts.com/
This seems to me like an unacceptable practice for anyone that has been nominated for any kind of award. At the very least there are ethical implications if not an outright defilement of the voting pool. I ask that you please look into the matter.
I still have not heard back from you regarding Microvolts clearly unethical practice of buying votes. They are over 20,000 votes ahead of anything else and that is questionably all due to Microvolts paying off their community in order to garner more votes. It is a ridiculously inflated number and what they are doing is unethical by any democratic standards. Please do something about this, we are preparing to take this matter to other media.
Waiting to hear back from them.
