Man, if there’s one thing I love more than role-play, it’s a good chart. Let’s look at some charts, man! Let’s look at some charts! This first chart looks at how many characters three of the four Katafray project members met per level they advanced – Eme didn’t record detailed numbers, so she’s excluded.
Which pretty much shows that, holy cats, Asrai met more or less double what Fegari met per level, and more than four times as many as Katafray did. Elwynn Forest really earns its rep as a popular place to hang out. But how many are role-players? This chart shows what percentage of people encountered were role-players.
I’m not saying that’s an inverse rate, because it’s ludicrously one sided. And to be fair, my meagre number of encounters could skew the levels. But jeeze. Asrai saw nothing. Still, not everyone can role-play, but if you’re on a role-play server you can be expected to be friendly to role-play, right? This chart shows what percentage of people either role-played or at least offered a friendly brush-off.
Umm. OK. So this is kind of getting worse and worse for Asrai. She did get ignored a lot – Does that count for the whole thing? What percentage of people just ignored us?
That’s a lot, a little over double what either Fegari or Katafray encountered. But it doesn’t explain that previous chart. Just how rude were the people Asrai met? What percentage of brush-offs were rude brush-offs?
Yeeeeeesh. Feel free to discuss in comments. My conclusion? Goldshire is a wasteland.
