Reddit census was updated again, this time to show country of origin and new servers: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing
Questionnaire if you'd like to fill it out: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... sp=sf_link
- Faction balance is off in Herod, Fairbanks, and Thalnos, each with a significant Horde bias even considering Reddit's Horde bias adding a ~2% margin of error.
- LATAM, BR, and QC French are all sticking with Thalnos.
- Faerlina and Herod have the highest densities of "Hardcore" players.
- Stalagg and Herod are actually on par for player counts. One of my guildies was theorizing that Herod has a lot of dead reserves and isn't as big as the character count suggests.
Sorry, fixed the broken link. (again)
Just keep in mind that while there is a ~2% margin of error, that doesn't take into account biases that come from polling from Reddit.
As an example, think of the number of people that are super against streamers on Reddit. So, the data on Faerlina is likely incorrect. Or, think of how many more people on Reddit believe themselves to be "Hardcore" players.
I find it interesting that the PvP servers are Horde favored and PvE/RP realms are Alliance favored.
More or less what I expected. Alliance is fantastic for PvE, Horde is fantastic for PvP.
PvE vs. PvP
Fear Ward vs. Will of the Forsaken
Blessing of Salvation vs. Windfury
Human Weap Skill Racial vs. Hardiness
Alliance racials/paladin skills tend to be really strong for PvE encounters, Horde Racials/shaman skills tend to be really strong for PvP. I don't know if everyone else follows this same line of thought, but it has definitely 'felt' this way since vanilla. If you want to PvP you roll horde, if you want to be a PvE, you roll alliance (preferably on a PvE server so the horde dont gank you )
Jeez, Grobbulus is huge and Bloodsail seems so tiny...

I wonder what the faction ratios will be on the next few servers blizzard will be releasing.
No original unarmored epic mounts
It's been a day and I still can't get "Banish the Spanish to Genhanish" out of my head. That's some good shitposting right there.
Damn, Firemaw now looking like the most popular EU server
The best part is that we need another damn census following the new server announcements.
Also kinda cool from these servers that PvP servers skew Horde and PvE servers skew Alliance, and I'm not sure that PvP racials are fully explanatory of that.

Updated OP with the new V4 survey.
Looks like Stalagg has the most Canadians eh?
