Results are in and can be viewed here. For graphs and charts go to Form > Show summary of responses (though it stopped working just now…). For the record this survey captures, if anything, the stats of a slice of the online Battletech community. In the future it’d be good to get some info on the people these individuals play with out in the real world.
I was a little surprised (and afterwards surprised I was surprised) at the dearth of younger and less experienced players. There’s any number of obvious explanations for this so I’ll not conjecture too much. Suffice to say if you’re here (or out there) you’re probably experienced and there’s a good chance you’re responsible more often than not for running games.
Another note worthy item is the significant amount of people who play primarily online. As far as I know Megamek is the only venue for this.
