Number of Accounts

Overall, 71% of the respondents have only 1 account, and 22% have two accounts. The rest have more than 2 accounts.

Female players were more likely to have a second account than male players (1.48 as opposed to 1.34). And age was positively correlated with number of accounts owned.

Surpising what large percentage of players own a second account - however the age correlation isnīt surprising at all since it probably goes hand in hand with income. You wouldnīt happen to have a more detailed breakdown of player populations in this survery, would you? Itīd be interesting to do a screeplot and see what (if any) segments break out of the average age/#accounts correlation.

Interesting how as the age progresses more accounts are made. Does this mean that as you age you prefer to start a new account, or you feel daring enough to try to break the rules and start another account?

I am really curious about the number of players that are quitting SWG due to the recient "Combat upgrade" done in that game. Is there anyway for you to find these numbers?

I must say that I would also be very interested in knowing that figure of SWG cancelled accounts due to new combat upgrade.

I'd third that .. I only restarted my SWG account a few days ago due to the NGE (Upgrade) after being away over a year.

I really would like to see this survey with EVE-Online included.
I know that EVE is a game that motivates players to use more than 1 account.
i.e: one account you use to mining, and other you can use to escort/transport your mine's ship.
Besides that CCP,
is always encouraging their clients with promos like those:
