Malazan and WOT are so different in scope, tone and style that it's almost impossible to compare them. In my own opinion, Malazan is the "best" fantasy series I've ever read, but WOT is my 'favorite'. You can't go wrong with either one, but trying to decide which is superior is a completely subjective exercise. Read them both, enjoy them both for their own strengths and merits.
