PostSubject: How many roleplayers on SSL?   Thu Jul 09, 2009 9:48 am

So with all this talk of the server dieing (again) and numbers of players left, I was thinking how many players are there you could call RPers on both factions on SSL?

Now I'm not saying LFRP is a good basis to judge this, but when the channel is busy I would say there is probably 30 people in there max. I know some people for various reasons avoid it like the plague (I blame idiot spammers personally Wink ) but how many others do you think are out there?

What would your estimate be on both sides?

For Horde, I was thinking somewhere in the region of 100-150, but I will admit that is just a very rough figure pulled out of my backside.

Thoughts muppeteers?

no, because many rp-ers (like me) don't use it half the time and there's as many ppl i see around with them that seem to be ooc-ers to me Razz

I guess that then asks the question "What is an RPer?" Would we call RPers people who only RP, people who respect the server rules and occasionally RP, people who do all of the above?
Once we've defined that we could then be more specific on numbers of RPers.

Having 100-150 roleplayers on a roleplaying server with a character population of 13 000 is a very low rate. Even if we count with 5 characters per player on average, that's still 500-750, which is about 4-6% of the overall characters.
Though, yes, it depends on what do you consider a roleplayer...

I think SSL if probably more like every RPer has 7-10 characters. Add to that the fact that raiders have tended to create 4+ lvl 80's because of the lack in particular classes (like our amazing lack of tanks and healers!) and you can see that the actual player population is part of the problem.

Okay, so lets refine the question. Seeing as hardcore vs casual is a common definition in wow, lets use it here.

How many roleplayers on each faction classified as:

"Hardcore RPer" - a player whose main focus is RP
"Casual RPer" - player who respects the ruleset and takes part in RP occassionally

Hardcore:
From what I know I'd say that HoZ, WB, HOS, GWT and then assorted individuals make up the majority of what you could call the hardcore RPers. The problem in numbers is how many people have alts that make up various members. For example, Vyp has Chabat as a fairly active character but that's only 1 player.

Casual:
I think we have more than people realise, for example Dey (when he was on the server) could have been classified as a casual RPer, even though he was GL of a leading raid guild here. However, a lot of raiders who do RP probably have alts in RP guilds and so counting might be a bit tricky.

And then there's the overall picture of those who RP and don't use the forums.

Using xtension tooltip as a basis on SSL I tend to see about 20 at most on horde. However there are those that do not use flag or immersion so we will add them...I honestly think we are looking at below 100 for horde side at least for definate Sad

I know we're definatley in a minoroty here. But if it's only about 50-70, what about the Ally side? I've heard their pretty skimpy over there.

Quality over quantity people...

still... i've been taking in people from other RP servers in my guild and all they can talk about is how amazed they are with SSL's respect for roleplay and the general quality of roleplay... some of them have even transfered their mains over so they can roleplay... i made sure they were aware of this forum and the Keel and taught them as much as i could on the server's roleplay so they wouldn't stay tunneled with the UD vision... stuff that makes me and should make us all proud!

Though the question is whether everyone who's in that channel is an RPer.

Does any other addon but the RP ones use the xtensiontooltip channel? If no, then I don't think any non-RP-er would bother with downloading such an addon...

The channel is only for FlagRSP (and maybe Myroleplay, etc. to, dunno..) and tons of people don't use it but do RP, so yeah.. it's not -that- bad with the RPers, they're just incredibly good at bunching up in Goldshire or spreading out completly + avoiding eachother. >.<

Some people might get the addon to read what RPers put in there but not want to use it otherwise. Would that make them an RPer? Granted, they are probably a very small number, but it's worth asking the question.
