    Question Reliable Realm Census and Stats website

    Hello MMOChamp.

    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.

    Xeb.

    Yeah that info is also quite nice. But same problem, how reliable is it? I guess it all depends on how many people on each realm have that addOn installed to upload population scans.

    It's probably not that reliable, seeing how Xavius EU apparently has no members, despite it being my server and home to one of the best guilds thus far in Cataclysm (Method).

    There is no such thing as a reliable realm census. Without blizzard's actual gathered statistics everything is a sad and distant approximation. Useful for baseline estimates but nothing more. The margin of error for these sites will always be very high.

    ^Crap like this is why battle.net threads get locked. Blizzard is not on a crusade against you.

    Yeah, I wish Bliz would provide these statistics. Would allow us to, for example, make more informed decisions about realm or faction change.
