    Character Activity Stats, Poll, Trip to Blizzcon Contest, MMO Report

    Stats: Characters that reached LVL 85 in Cataclysm
    More interesting stats for you this week! With all the talk about the death of WoW, we decided to take a look at the percentage of characters that made it from being level 80 during Wrath of the Lich King to level 85 today. These stats compare a sample of 1M+ characters from early 2010 and checks which players reached level 85. Keep in mind a few things before interpreting these stats:


    • Death Knight is the least leveled class because everyone leveled one to 80 during WotLK to be one of the cool kids. Including a fair amount of people who ended up not liking it.
    • People didn't hit the "Nothing left to do on my main character, better reroll!" wall that they encountered in WotLK, raids were properly balanced and people didn't spend their first months steamrolling Naxxramas.

    Class Playing Cataclysm
    Mage 37.82%
    Druid 36.84%
    Hunter 36.47%
    Priest 36.30%
    Warrior 35.83%
    Shaman 34.77%
    Warlock 34.17%
    Paladin 33.45%
    Rogue 29.56%
    Death Knight 25.58%


    Poll: Are you still playing WoW?
    We've been working on the stats above for a few days and we're wondering, are you still playing WoW, or just reading MMO-Champion to know when to come back?

    Interesting. Even though it "kinda" says that mages are most played class (I'm one myself :P) I must say that my realm is filled with paladins... (and hunters and druids but they were # 2 and 3 anyway lol)

    That's the point ... They were so many in wrath because it was THE NEW CLASS OMG, but people went back to their old main for Cataclysm when they realized they don't like DK as much as they thought.

    Those are relative stats, there's still a lot of DKs, just not as much as the amount of DKs in WotLK.

    What's happened to Boub?

    I believe Death Knights are low because pretty much everyone and their mother leveled a DK alt in Wrath - either because it felt new or because they wanted a herber/miner that was fast to level.

    No, I'm just working with chaud on news posts now, with the hope that he will act as a backup if I want to take 1 week of holidays at some point. I haven't had a week-end or holidays since I started the site in March 2007, and I'm running out of gnome jokes.

    I'm not going anywhere, just trying to teach chaud to be as smart as me.

    These stats won't tell you much about class balance now since they are only looking at a class balance that existed during WotLK. Current class balance stats could be on the list of future stats to share however!

    Also, Bird with Hat is cooler than Smug Cat right

    Given how high that "No" number is in the poll (and I'm one of them, the writing in Cataclysm is so awful that actually reading a quest makes my eyes bleed) I wonder if MMO Champ should add a section for other games? If the people watching to know when to come back to WoW are playing something else in the mean time, it'd be a built in audience.
