Diablo 3 Legendary Ancient Items: Mega-Analysis + Screens
Last week I played a good amount of the upcoming Patch 2.1.2 on the PTR, with copied characters and then with a new Season Two Demon Hunter. Since it’s just for testing my S2 character was softcore, and with the insane drop rates of the community buff, gearing up (and leveling up) goes very quickly. […]
Diablo 3 PTR: Bigger and Better Nephalem Rift Maps

31% of Diablo Players are Female

Posted 26 Mar 2012 by

According to a Brand report from MCV females make up 31% of the Diablo community. The report was based on findings from 6,725 gamers, of whom 526 had played in the last six months. There isn’t much data publicly available from the report but it does show that some age groups are larger in the Diablo community than the average gamer – for example over twice as many females fall into the 30-34 age bracket amongst Diablo gamers than with games. With males the biggest difference comes in the 20-24 age bracket with 12% making up the average gamer but 18% the Diablo gamer.

Even though this report takes a sample of the gaming community and not specifically a Diablo community it will still be interesting to see what the gender make up of this community is. We have ran this vote before but many moons ago and if memory serves it came back around 6% of us were female.  We shall run a poll for that sometime in the not-too-distant future to see if that has changed.

If you’d like the full report, it’s yours for £480.00 or $765.00 or EU574.  A bar chart of the breakdown of ages across the genders is after the break.
