(new to the forums, don't hate me)
Just wondering. I'm a girl and once in a while I run into people in-game that make a reference to me being a guy. Then I say I'm a girl, and I get some strange reactions sometimes. (I.E "no way, i bet you're a 40 year old man in his mom's basement" or some people trolling me for it)
I wanna know roughly how many girls play this game, and do you get strange reactions too? Share your stories. :3
and it's not like I just scream "I'MMA GIRL" in every game, just sometimes the topic arises/my friends call me a "she" and people are like "whaaaa". I'm just wondering how many female players are on here. Someone sent a link that said 90% are male. LOL
Quote:How many of the users on the forums are actually girls though?
Because assuming the sample space is the players of league(where approx 10% are female), we also have to look at the cases where the player goes on the forums, right?
So this poll gauges P[User == Female |User is on the forums]. Also, trolls that aren't honest. -.-
It's kind of interesting if the gender of players visiting the forums are ~20%(Accounting for trolls selecting female). Of course this makes multiple assumptions...

Quote:Hey davin i'm wondering about the 90% number that was in the LoL infographic released earlier this year. If what you say is correct, and the number is closer to 80% like this survey shows, how did we get that big of a change? What went on there?
Basically, as a sampling tool a forum poll is relatively weak in terms of how specific it'll be--if it gets participation without any systematic selection effects, a poll can be a little more precise, but really your best (reasonably non-crazy logistics) bet with this kind of thing is to do random selection rather than opt-in. When opt-in is necessary (like the forum survey that got posted), going broad and high volume makes it a bit safer, as you can be a little more sure of what the conditions that led a player to respond were like.
