There were two similar threads in the german forum section a while ago. One of them actually had around 200 participants in the poll, putting the average age at 25 years, mostly made up of people in this range in addition to a few senior exceptions. The other one had less people participating but put the age in comparison with the WN8.

 

Obviously this is non-representative data, as it only mirrors the players that actually visit the forum.

If I were you I would take a look at Darrell Huff's classic and funny book 'How to Lie with Statistics'

Everyone should read it

It has harsh things to say about self-selected surveys

It might represent only that if it wasn't for having to have a game account to post here.

 

I would be dubious of such a research question in case it was already flawed to start with. ie what is my motivation? Is it the same as yours? I think you can see where I'm going.

Only answer this question gives is bands of ages, which is usual the 25 yrs as they have disposable income before marriage. Then the second lifers after kids leave home at 50yrs, but they don't all live long as often fast sports cars and overpowered motorcycles kill them.

It also excludes those such as myself, in their '90s

A couple of interesting and true statistics:

  • In WW1, there was a huge increase in head injuries after the British Army issued steel helmets to soldiers
  • Most people in Finland have more than the average number of legs

Oh wow, I had an idea that there would be a bit more older folks playing WoT compared to your average online shooter but I would never think it was this much when the younger ones seem to actually be the minority of the player base.

Huh, who would've thought...

Some of the 11-20 years old category appear to have become confused by dog years.

My entirely unscientific impression is that the game has a mix of keen young persons, who are in it for the competitive aspect, and a bunch of much older players who grew up with Airfix tank kits, WW2 movies, Action Man, etc, whose kids have left home, and who now have some spare time and cash.

46 but if you meet me and I'm playing well it's my 14 year old son, if I'm playing like a bot it's my 8 year old playing. I'm just average

I think I came across your 14 year old a few days ago.  There was a Super Hellcat with WN8 5 and he actually played a perfectly sound game.
