In connection with Women’s Day which is today (8 March), Wargaming has created a portrait of female players in World of Tanks.
On the eve of International Women’s Day, Wargaming conducted a World of Tanks survey in which two thousand playing girls took part. This is how the portrait of the average “tankgirl” was created.
The developer noticed that in quantitative terms the female part is clearly smaller than the male – 2% compared to 98%. Most of them work as managers, and the average age of girls is 26. The vast majority are brunettes, they listen to pop and rock music, watch comedies and science fiction. They prefer a sporty style of dress, and from sports they are interested in volleyball, football and car racing.
“Tankgirls” are active in the game community: more than half are clan members, and 70% transfer friends from World of Tanks to the real world. Only 6% pay special attention to the results in the game – women mainly play for pleasure and look for new friends. Over half of the respondents said that they did not hide their gender in the game. This provides them a special approach, full of compliments and mistake forgiveness.
About 60% of women surveyed are married. Half of them play World of Tanks with their spouse, helping him by playing tank destroyers. Most survey participants – 65% do not play anything other than World of Tanks, and play every day or several times a week.
