Class Popularity in the Beta?

Very pretty graphic that alleges to describe the relative popularity of the classes in the beta, apparently from tabulating which chars the users of the Reddit Diablo 3 channel are playing. We’ve got no idea if this has any validity, or how it projects to the whole beta play population, but it’s certainly pretty.

Personally, I have no doubt that Wizards are the most played; they certainly are the most video’ed, but I doubt the other 4 are that even. Thanks to Chrisek for the tip.

  1. The Wizard did seem to be the most popular class, but I don’t think it’s by that wide of a margin.  I believe the demon hunter will be a close second.  The monk and barbarian will be close and the witch doctor seems to be the least popular by a little bit.

  2. Just to clarify, this chart is showing the number of users who chose that character’s “flair,” or tiny graphic image, next to their names on Reddit. It’s not indicative of Beta character use, only of that user’s personal favorite class at the moment.

    • Yeah, Just to build of that, it is pretty much what class are you going to play, rather than what class is being played, since the majority aren’t in beta yet.

    • Yeah.  I also didn’t expect reddit to be that popular in asia, so that statistic isn’t very surprising either.

  3. Looks pretty legit to me, Wizard is and will be the most played class, its skills are very relatable from other games, and seems very newbie friendly.

  4. I’m glad there’s one lesser used class; I’ll get to be different from the mainstream players.

  5. Sometimes I thing Great Mother Russia doesn’t exists.

  6. Doesn’t this graph just show Blizzard employees simply have very few asian friends 🙂

  7. Blizzard has these numbers, we may or may not see the real numbers in the future.
