Current Class poll launch Barb not most pop?

Posts: 148
I'm currently running a poll with peoples reported first classes to play on launch and the wizard is last by a large percentage.... Didn't expect that.....also didn't expect Witch Doctor to be making a run for first after 150 people polled. Vote at the link below if you haven't already and post a comment of your flava flav on what you think the current results mean if anything <_< >_>

Witch Doctor: 32

Don't believe polls. People will play a class for the purpose of whether or not it will be fun to play and how easily they can farm.

If you (or anyone) is concerned with real money auction house purchases, the barbarian is in a really nice spot, being able to wield all the one and two handed weapons except bows and their special armor is a belt, an item that is reported to contain lower affix values that other items, so optimizing will be considerably less difficult.

Besides if the numbers stay the way they are, everyone that intends to farm Inferno will be playing a monk, and there will be plenty of goodies for everyone else ;)

I've always enjoyed asking other people their perspectives. Fun to see everyone looking forward to all the characters... I'm excited..

A Poll on Facebook with ~55,000 votes.

#1. Barb - 14,000
#2. DH - 13,000
#3. Monk - 10,500
#4. Wizard - 9,900
#5. WD - 8,100

Also, I'm pretty sure with the poll on this site not too long ago Barb was #1 as well.

Well when your sample size is 147... That leaves a lot of room for error. This data is worthless.

All the classes are close enough in the big polls that you aren't really going to notice with millions of players.

Cool idea, but a poll with 150 people in a game with millions of players is not a poll.
