Hi,

i am quite astonished about the quality of many forum posts and the amount of trolling here. This is why i would like to know something about the average WoT player. Personally, I believe that the problem is the average age of the customers of WoT. The games I played before had players with an average age of about 30 years and the behavior of the players within the community was a lot better. This is why I would like you to tell me your age before Orree comes and trashes this poll.
I would like to know, whether the quality of forum posts correlates with the average age of the customers.


Thread moved to more appropriate section of the forums.  Please ensure you post your threads to the appropriate forum section.

You do realise that people will likely just troll this thread and say under 10 or something.

Most of the trolling I see is in general in good jest and sometimes even well designed and funny.  The really bad ones will not look at your thread because they only come on the forum to create topics about how X is OP or X Conspiracy stopped them winning a game.  So it is likely only the regular 'normal' forum users who will see and post this thread.

Forums tell nothing about average WoT players, but I'm under the impression that average age is relatively high compared to other games.

My Clan has a predominence of over 35's in our 80 odd members  :Smile_blinky:

Thats easy. I think that the social skills of the forum members don't change anymore at the age of 35. Moreover, I believe that most players are younger and than 30 or even 25. This is why I did not create anymore options. Maybe I was too lazy. Sorry for that.

I was wondering the same thing. I would assume the OP to be around 22... at which point 35 year olds looked like pensioners :D

Free to play game = lots of teenagers

Still, this community is nothing compared to the whole EU playerbase.

I hope I didn't offend you there, we're not that many years apart anyway... but I am still surprised with the way you arranged the groups. :)

The general quality of this place is rather high when one takes it in context of the entire internet.

That doesn't mean it isn't a citadel of unedifying drivel most of the time. The ability of most people to argue a point is still very poor.

A bit more moderating wouldn't harm.  As soon as anyone raises an issue there are two more threads oin the same subject and a bunch of polls.  A lot of threads could be savely close as soon as they're created.

Ahem, not quite.  Put it this way, I can't remember being 35 - but then at my age there's quite a lot I can't remember...

Far from the truth.

You haven't experienced a really "youthful" community then. I was part of an MMOPRG with a BIIIIG com of turkish imigrants. THAT was harsh ... its more like a book club here.

Life ends at 35 eh?

27? I think you will be at the younger end.  At least from my experience of the players I know either through RL or the clan.
