The numbers you get from a site like this is going to be mostly older people though...younger players tend not to read forums.

You might be right. I will most likley cross post this on another forum just to get people from mmo-champ and the wow forums. Soon as i get like 100 responses ill just average and see what i get.

I'll help Moonwander throw off the average -- 51 here.

I think the oldest in our guild that I know about is a 67 year old couple. I can say that age doesn't matter too much as they are good players overall.

The problem with using a mean to find the true average is that outliers will skew your results and your std deviations will also be off on your z-scores. You would have to use Excel to run a regression analyses based on which sites you get your answers from.

26 (although I when asked the other weekend I said 25 and thought I was being entirely truthful until by GF pointed out that I was, in fact, 26...it was strange)
