Runescape is way better than World of Warcraft. It's cheaper a lot more features and things to do. Sure world of warcraft has extra things runescape doesn't have such as things like not losing items when you die. But spending $20 a month for a game? Outrageous. For a cheap $5 a month you can get a much better game with a lot more features and stuff to do. Runescape is better than World of Warcraft.
Runescape only costs $60 a year. World of Warcraft costs $240 a year! You do the math. Overall. Runescape wins

First of all, I would like to thank my opponent for starting this debate, for this topic sparks an interest in me.
Now, on to my argument:

Having played both Runescape and World of Warcraft, I can honestly say that WoW is, without question, a MUCH better game than Runescape.

I'll start my debate by rebutting my opponent.

>"It's cheaper"
Sure, Runescape is the cheaper game. Does that make it better? Of course not. For example, let's say you go to a burger joint. Would you expect a two-pound triple angus beef bacon cheeseburger to be the same price as a kids meal? Absolutely not! Why would a burger that is obviously of much better quality and value be worth the same as some dinky, tiny beef patty? It wouldn't, and the same theory applies to Runescape and WoW. World of Warcraft is simply of a higher calibur than Runescape; it's quality far surpasses that of Runescape. What proof have I of this? I will show you.

>"a lot more features and things to do"
Since you have failed to describe these features, I will describe some of the many features that WoW brings to the table. World of Warcraft provides its players with 10 playable races, 10 playable classes, over 70 dungeons/raids to take part in, 4 whole continents to explore and quest in, 5 different objective-based battlegrounds, multiple world-PvP zones, and a working arena system for dedicated PvPers, rideable ground and flying mounts, seige weapons/vehicles, detailed character customization, and achievements. And that's just a small list of the many things WoW has to offer. Runescape has nothing plausible to compete with this.

>"But spending $20 a month for a game?", "World of Warcraft costs $240 a year!"
Check your facts before you post. World of Warcraft costs $15 a month, and $12.99 a month if you buy six months at a time. That's roughly between $156-$180 a year, so don't try making the price seem more than it is. Like I said before, the better the quality of a game, the more expensive it naturally will be. Although $15 a month is a tad pricey, WoW definitely gives you your money's worth. Besides, this debate isn't "Runescape is a better priced game than World of Warcraft", this is about which is simply the overall better game.

I suggest that in order to determine which is truely OVERALL the better game, these five factors be considered:

1. Gameplay
2. Features
3. Cooperation
4. Player vs. Player
5. Overall Experience

I encourage my opponent to hit these few important points, and I will do the same.

Once again, I thank my opponent for starting this debate, and I wish the best of luck to him.

I guess all I can say is that this entire debate is pure opinion.
I want to thank my oppenent for putting up a good fight but all I can say is its all opinion

Of course it is all opinion!
Everything people debate is their opinion!
It is the same as someone debating for or against abortion, it is their opinion.
This whole site is based on people debating their opinions!

Since my opponent hasn't given any reasons for how Runescape is better than WoW, and he hasn't refuted any of my arguments, I am not left with much to say.

So, I'll post two videos showing the difference between Runescape raiding and World of Warcraft raiding.
I'll let the audience decide which is the better game.

*I ask the audience to please watch both videos now.*

Clearly, World of Warcraft has FAR superior gameplay, graphics, and features.
Honestly, WoW makes Runescape look pathetic.

Hopefully my opponent will put up a decent argument this next round.
As always, I wish him good luck.

Nothing to refute.

Thanks for the debate, but I wish you would have at least argued with me over something.

Audience, it should be crystal clear who to vote for.

Tell me where I claimed that the graphics were the reason WoW is better?
Would YOU like to debate me on this?
Posted by xiaotianZ 7 years ago

dude, the graphics are not the game. Wow has better graphics, but runescape has much better gameplay and skills. a low level player have fun by leveling up through a variety of quests that requires different skills and interaction; whereas wow quests are: kill this thing. kill this thing some more. go to this person who will tell you to kill more things. and runescape does not restrict your classes i.e. you can be a warrior, archer, mage all at the same time. in wow, it's just one race and one profession.
but this debate goes to con due to his superior reasoning. I still support runescape.

Due to PRO's non refuting debate style, I believe this debate belongs in the Barrens chat >.<

This dude is insane. He really believes runuescape is better than World of warcraft. I have never played either of them seriously but i have played both of them before and world of warcraft has to be without a doubt the better game. And dude every debate is gonna be opinionated. Thats why you persuade the audience to lean to one side. Come on Man.
