Stats - Character Gender Ratios
News has been slow and we've been looking at building random stats to keep you interested! We're still working on the juicy stuff but let's start with character gender ratios!

You might think that Female Dwarves are player's least favorite female model, but you would be mistaken! Female Orcs take the lead by a few percent margin in our poll of Level 85 characters.

Race Male Female
Human 66.48% 33.52%
Orc 89.34% 10.66%
Dwarf 86.72% 13.28%
Night Elf 56.2% 43.8%
Undead 77.4% 22.6%
Tauren 85.82% 14.18%
Gnome 69.43% 30.57%
Troll 74.24% 25.76%
Goblin 72.44% 27.56%
Blood Elf 55.05% 44.95%
Draenei 47.73% 52.27%
Worgen 80% 20%

Good things really do come to those who wait, or at least, exercise persistence and patience.

I should add that, unlike the olden days, you aren't leaving empty handed from any boss encounter, and you can spend the Valor Points you're obtaining to acquire even more powerful gear. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

New World of Warcraft Fan Wallpaper

NVIDIA Drivers
A quick note for those of you that keep your drivers up to date. There are some significant bugs in the 280.26 drivers that were recently released, including a bug that makes cards run warm. Avoid upgrading until a fixed driver is released.

    Might be 270.61 - at least that's the one I have at the moment. Thanks for the update, always worry about updating drivers since Nvidea appears to be famous for this :/ (no joke here btw) What surprised me was that there were more male blood elves than female blood elves. I rarely see people playing male ones and always tend to see female ones. Quite surprising. Surprised about the worgen too. And human, though my human rogue was male (I always got a lot of flak for it too for some reason).

    They look horrible
    Fixed that for you. Alliance has the worst character models, most of the females look like they are butch as hell, especially dwarf and humans. Space goats have the most awkward animations and the tail propping your cloak up as a male looks so dumb, hence why more people play females of that race. Worgen just look dumb and gnomes have proportional issues regardless of gender. No one plays female Taurens on Horde side though, which isn't surprising since they also have stupid looking animations and character design.

    People wonder why there are more Horde players in the world, it's because Horde has better looking characters for the most part.

    A surprising amount of Tauren/Worgen/Orc females. If I had my way i'd dig a massive pit (Much like that one in the Eastern Plaguelands with the caretaker who burns all the leftover scourge), burn them all, and bask in the sweet scent of repulsive creatures being incinerated.

    i would be shocked if there were more females :O

    I have trouble believing there are more night elf and blood elf males than females.. Also female dwarf ftw!
  1. Lowlie's Avatar
    Whoa ! Im a proud owner of 10.66% ! Also, Nvidia drivers again? As far as i knew it before, nvidia was only better than ati for having better drivers. But im certainly starting to lean towards atis drivers too. Least you dont have to be afraid for breaking your gpu by updating drivers

    Female Dwarfs are still the least favorite, there's more orcs than dwarfs so ther are far more fem orcs than fem dwarfs.

    That chart seems alright in terms of % based on how many people play the race. But the statement about female orcs and dwarves doesnt seem fitting here because it doesnt show the total number of orcs vs dwarves played.

    Not surprised to see very low numbers for female orcs and dwarves, but there are more belf and nelf males than females?! Scary..
  1. chogally's Avatar
    It states that female orcs are the least played female race just due to the % versus their male counterparts but what about the number compared to the number of dwarfs that are played, im sure more people play orcs than dwarfs. ( at 5 lvl 85 female dwarfs now).

I get the feeling that whatever the sampling size was that it generally was either not a large enough sample or not a wide enough sample to accurately reflect the in-game experience.
    "I feel these statistics are wrong, based on my test sample of at most 100 people". Really now? You make that bold of a statement and then even have the courage to question the sample size of the OP?

    It's not a huge gap between Orcs and Dwarves. Maybe a percent of the overall player population if I remember correctly.

    I do think it's funny that there are more female Draenei than male, even though I love the male Draenei model. So silly!
