    It does make me wonder what the other 10% of people who aren't male or female really are... ;) For this reason alone, I'd personally see these stats as modified as if they came directly from a database, silly mistakes like that wouldn't have been made :p Well....aren't very likely to have ;) Care to share with us where you obtained these 'facts'? :D

    And if most want to play Hib, why do they all end up in Alb?

    there was a survey on the camelot homepage a few weeks back, the statistics are probably from that, regarding the 10% that don't have a sex, this is probably due to them choosing to not disclose their gender.

    cant belive 38% are 12-15, from my expeirence thatld be likely 15% or so. and i wuld be sure that there wuld be more than 4% over 33 or whatever. ild ahve though most age range wuld have been like 16-23 having the bulk in.

    I doubt its 'made up' but I also can't belive its accurate, particularly where age is concerned. The most liekly cause is an unbalanced survey base, the only sure way to have a good chance of yeilding accurate results is to choose players at random from the entire playerbase and survery every one of those people - if the survey was not done this way the results are questionable at best.

    The wonderful thing about anon surveys and stats is you have no way of knowing how honest the person has been about their answers. I suggest the age survey is very wrong I know so many ppl around my age - can't be right oh I fall in the old box :)

    'There's lies, damn lies and statistics'

    Just look at the recent events over the last few years in the UK - all the outrage around young ppl dieing from taking ecstasy - when in reality more ppl die each year getting out of bed - yet no one is calling for tighter controls on beds :)

    Statistics are tools invented by politicians to impress ppl when in fact the situation is dire.

    I think its safe to say 28% yes then...

    Alot more understandable then they above one ("u female?? u have pics??")

    11% Craft??? right, like anyone actually enjoys clicking the same icon over and over and watching a 1 minute bar filling up from left to right, perhaps these statistics are made up...

    so while we are at it, i ermmm found some more daoc statistics

    U speak l33tsp3ak irl?
    87% yes
    13% n0

    You play this game to make you feel cool and powerful?
    90% yes
    10% not telling

    You use moms or dads creditcard?
    93% yes
    7% no

    You think Daoc is bad for your math skills?
    63% yes
    58% no

    sources??? who cares

    Looking at that age diversity tells that this is either hoax or badly done :O At least for UK servers' part.

    this proves that the results have been tampered with, the only service you get from goa is being able to pay, and that's not even guaranteed

    I think it's funny a lot of Midgard players are saying 'no way are those age ranges correct'. For Midgard, no, they're probably not. But don't forget about all the 12 year olds that run around in albion ;)
