    Default DDO Demographic

    Would love to see here your age, sex, if you are vip or not, frequency of buying TP.

    Recently in guild i have heard a lot of "You aren't the DDO demographic" - this means basically that DDO isn't build for me so my opinion is irrelevant. I beg to differ. I feel that i am the perfect target demographic. I am single male with a full time job. I work a 45ish hour week. Almost all of my spare time is spent playing DDO either tring or raiding. It would appear that i am addicted, but lets be clear, if i was into football then i would be spending my time watching football. If i liked guns i would be cleaning them. If i liked fly fishing i would be fly fishing. If i liked tv, then i would be watching tv. I'm not. I like playing an mmo instead.

    I purchase TP every 3 to 6 months. Why do i do this ? Because DDO is my hobby. I can justify spending 100-200$ per year on my hobby. If i went out to the cinema it would cost me £20 ~30$ish, if i went out for a nice meal it would cost me ~$200ish. Also, i feel that in life if you wish to receive then you must give. I want DDO to continue for as long as i play it so i am completely willing to make a contribution so that it continues to provide me with amusement. In relative terms, 99$ per year is 27 cents a day. I probably spend more money on toilet paper per month.

    (I am also aware that only around ~5% of the game population reads the forums, and this 5% most likely represents the hardcore players, and these hardcore players are probably VIP)

    To get the ball rolling:
    I am 30ish year old male, employed full time. I am VIP and i purchase a bundle points every 3 to 6 months when a deal is on.

    More or less the same. I am a hair older, and buy a little more often. Xp pots drink drink drink.

    Fine, I'll add to the creepy because I'm THAT bored.

    25, male, programmer (40h/week), VIP on two accounts. Only bought points once when they first came up with the 8000 or so points for 50$ (PAX thing I think?)

    Okay.

    34M..worked 40 hours a week but now on disability awaiting 2nd back surgery (probably from spending so much time in front of the computer playing DDO). Premium player, bought exp pack and have bought points 3 times (all during bonus point times) in the 2 years I've been playing.

    Ah. And this is what I appreciate about DDO. The mature audience. Beats WoW every time (I play both games when I can, but DDO is higher on the priority list).

    Male.

    26 years old.

    Premium - Buys TP every 4-6 months or so during a large sale.
