Apologies if there's already a thread about this. I used the search function before posting but no dice.
I would like a website with reliable and up-to-date census stats regarding WoW realms. Info I'm interested in: number of total active players per realm, and breakdown of Horde vs. Alliance percentages.
There is http://www.warcraftrealms.com/eu_realmstats.php, for example. Does anyone know how reliable its information is? It is pretty much exactly what I want, but I'm just not sure how seriously I should take it.
Also, I know the game gives me a population estimate when creating a character on a new realm, but as far as I remember it is not broken down by factions so it's useless to me.
Thanks in advance for any useful suggestions.
