Hung, Drawn and Quartered!

A quarter found on the pavement of NYC, your favourite quarter of a beautiful European city, the first quarter slice of a delicious pizza - all indisputably good things.  But they pale in comparison when compared to the following quarter: a quarter of a million!  Only two weeks after release, Mythos, the hack’n’slash MMO, has garnered more than 250,000 players.

The numbers don’t stop there though, a quick peek into the statistical depths of the game revealed a host of other interesting facts and figures from the first fortnight of online carnage.

32% of players who have created a character thus far have chosen to wage war as the fiery Pyromancer, while 28% have chosen to play as the deft handed Gadgeteer.  40% of players choose to embrace the carnage, paint the town blood red, and then some, as the Bloodletter.  From the selection of races, 27% have chosen the Satyr, 28% the Gremiln, 15% the Cyclops and 30% of people have decided that they’d like to remain human.

Male characters also seem to be the order of the day, with only 1/3 of players choosing to go monster hunting as a female. 

But what use our numbers for the average hero of Uld?  Well, this weekend there will be double experience points for completed quests and slayed monsters.  From today at 12pm, to Monday at 12pm.
