Status Update - 1st November

Although this site has been dormant for the past two months my activities behind the scenes have continued; I have just completed a complete refresh of all my data since Patch 2.2.0 went live. I am now catching up on suggestions made in comments and emails and have scripted my next round of class reports which *should* be ready in the next week. Below is a status snapshot of the database as it stands.

I made a blog with some analysis of your data.

You can read it here:

This is great work. I had still felt I was a rarer Class as an aliance shammy, but seeing the numbers shows me just exactly that.

Another wild thought is to track what talent specs are chosen within each class as well. ...Or what professions are most popular on the different realms devided by aliance and Horde so you would know if your services or ...or gatherings, would be needed or just adding to the surplus.

Great job!

Andy said...

This is the exact reason I subscribe to your feed. Great info man...I'll be sure to pass this along to others.

Mauro Cappelli said...

Really good work. The amount of data downloaded is amazing. I've a little question for you: do you use the "lastModified" to check if a character is still used? It may be useful to know info about that.

Cccc said...

First of all, really good job man, keep it up! :)

I have some suggestions about new statistics. What about checking the most popular setups and/or classes in arena for each realm? You could use rating brackets to make it more useful, like how much percent of total teams are warrior paladin pairs in 2v2 above 2000 rating. This for all classes and the most popular setups (this might not work in 3v3 and 5v5). Would be very useful to see who will we meet i think.

John said...

How are you getting data for levels 1 through 9? I thougt the armory blocked that information.

Anonymous said...

This is totaly wrong.. Armory doesnt give information about lvl 1-9 and my self I got about 15 lvl 1 toons and many other got same..

Nite_Moogle said...

Why didn't you post the ratio of Horde to Alliance at level 70? The ratio is only shown across all levels.

Anonymous said...

Could you please include EU-Garona in your mining the next time ?

I recently migrated my char on this realm and I would like to know the population.

Issac said...

Can you take the stats and break them down PVP vs PVE realms - Would be quite interesting to see that trend.

kadaan said...

I'm not sure how he's traversing the data, but if you get a "Must be at least level 10" page you know that character exists. If you use a brute-force alphabetical order name search you'll find those characters even if you can't see their actual profile.

Anonymous said...

I think you should state at the top that it is the US and EU servers (if that is what it is).

I can see there are server specific information lower down, but it is not clear what those at the top are.

James said...

It'd be awesome to have PvP vs PvE realm data as well as overall Horde/Alliance balance as well as most popular races in the game across all servers and other fully amalgamated stats.

Skyfire said...

You've been noticed on censusplus. :P

A breakdown of our numbers vs yours can be found here and here.

It was commented on that your data was much lower than the Census's. Your method of finding toons does seem to have quite the affect on the numbers.

ezrael said...

Out of curiosity, is there any way to find out what percentage of those 70's are in arenas by class? Say, how many warriors are in arenas?
