More males or females?

Post by Horoscopejunkie » Tue Mar 31, 2009 6:18 pm

On multiplayer, would you say more wolves are male and female? Do you think this has to do with the demographic of the game at all?

I'm fairly sure that wolves have a male-female ratio that has slightly more male pups born on average, and dogs have a comparable ammount of male pups as well.

this topic should be moved to general wolf quest disscussion in regards to the game

but in real life the male female ratio is about pretty equel...I think David Mech says its about even except that their is a slight bias towards males in a litter.

In the game there seems to be a lot of a female players, so most likely their wolf characters are female too...of course real wolves don't choose their gender.

In real life, there are definitely more girls playing the game. Though lots of girls play as male wolves. I'd still say there are more females though.

Yes and it can get annoying sometimes if you want to RP and then there are only females!

Although I think the numbers are pretty close in real life, I think there are more females found in the game.

The numbers, I would say, I pretty close in real life as you said. Some argue that there is a bias towards males but in the long wrong I would say its close to 50 50.

I'd say about 70-80% of players on Multi are female, at least according to my experience.

And it is basically even in the wild, due to genetics.
