Thirds. A WoWInsider poll.

I took the poll asked over at WoW Insider today.  LINK.

Basically, how many 70′s do you have?

I answered 3.  This was what their poll results looked like when I took it:

None. Yet.    667 (8.6%)
Just the one.    2191 (28.3%)
Two.    2149 (27.8%)
Three.    1348 (17.4%)
Four.    690 (8.9%)
Five!    319 (4.1%)
Six to eight.    218 (2.8%)
Nine — one for every class.    63 (0.8%)
Ten or more. “Real life”? What’s that?    97 (1.3%)

Let me add a spin to it:

None. Yet.    667 out of  7,742 total, or  100.00% of the total voters/players have had a character at this stage.  Naturally.

Just the one.    2191    7,075    91.38%
Two.    2149    4,884    63.08%
Three.    1348    2,735    35.33%
Four.    690    1,387    17.92%
Five!    319    697    9.00%
Six to eight.    218    378    4.88%
Nine — one for every class.    63    160    2.07%
Ten or more. “Real life”? What’s that?    97    97 of 7,742 =  1.25%

What this said is that 1.25% of the players (who’ve voted so far) had 10 or more level 70′s.  I would have thought there would be more.  I’m relieved to learn that most folks indeed have lives.  :)

2.07% the players have at least 9 level 70′s, one for every class.  Our Guild Master has that many.  He’s in that top 2%.

Folks with six or more 70′s comprised only 4.88% of the players.

9% of all players had at least 5 level 70′s.

18% of all players had at least  4 level 70′s

35% of all players had at least 3 level 70′s.  That’s where I’m at.  In the top 3rd.  Every 3rd player I see has as many 70′s as me.  Yowza.

63%, or about 2 out of every 3 players, have at least 2 level 70′s.  Wow.  That’s a lot of 70′s out there.

91% have at least 1 level 70.  9 folks in 10 have a level 70 character. (Or 9 out of 10 readers of WoW Insider who bother to vote in polls)

There are no more noobs. Pretty much every player has made it to the end, level 70, at least once.  2/3′s have done it at least twice, and 1/3 have done it at least 3 times.  (That’s crazy numbers.  Unless my math is off.  And don’t forget this is just the WoW Insider voters who bother to vote in polls.  7,000 and more of them so a good sample.)

    Interesting way of looking at it, totalling them up like that.

    Except you’ve missed the most important point – this is a poll of WoW Insider readers – maybe relatively mass audience, but still a distinct subset of WoW players.

    My stepson was rather happy last night to get his dwarf paladin to level 30. He’s looking forward to the patch that will let him get his warhorse early, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t read WoW Insider…

    You’re right. It’s just responses by WoW Insider readers. And folks who are interested in reading it, and who will bother to vote, are probably more likely to be heavier players. So yeah, the responses would tend to indicate more 70′s than actually out there.

    Aye, the Paladin’s Warhorse will really feel like an accomplishment for him. It’s fun at all the levels played.

    *raises hand* I read WoW Insider and I’m still a noob. 9 hunters and not one is a level 70 yet. The closest I have is a level 65. This is after almost 2 years of playing too… :P
