The World of Warcraft Wealth Survey 2012 has now concluded and the report has been published!
Report: World of Warcraft Wealth Survey 2012
I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to fill out the survey, this project would not be possible without help from the World of Warcraft community!
Here's the tl;dr version:
- Average player gold was 302,593
- Median player gold was 80,000
- 81.63% of players survey reported bloew average gold levels
- "The 99%" owns 74.18% of the gold
- Consortium readers had a 141% increase in average gold levels over the rest of the sample
As some of you might remember last year I ran a survey to try and determine the average player wealth and how various demographics affected wealth. After the success I had last year with the project I've decided to run it again to see where the wealth levels stand a year and an expansion later.
The survey can be found again at http://xsinthis.net/survey/ and more information can be found at Announcing the World of Warcraft Wealth Survey 2012 and World of Warcraft Wealth Survey though if you've participated in last years survey nothing much has changed so you can skip right to the survey.
I'd also like to ask any bloggers if they could slip a bit about the survey into their next post or link it on their Twitter, I'm trying to get this survey to as many and as broad a selection of players as possible to help it's accuracy, and any help you can give to further that goal is greatly appreciated.
I hope everyone here takes the survey, the background questions lets me isolate the average for Consortium readers so it should be interesting to see how we all stack up to the average player.
Thanks in advance for the time, I'll keep things updated here as the survey progresses.
