Well, someone trained Thread Necromancy to V.

One of ours, ten of theirs.

Everybody knows this, women are better in everything. This is why we have so much time painting our faces.
Even the Higgs boson is female.

Is it not at all possible that this type of gameplay is not attractive to the majority of women?

Other male dominated hobbies:

Sports
Hunting
Survival
Fishing
Driving

Just because there is not a 50/50 split doesnt mean its broken and a disproportionate amount of advertising money needs to be spent on 1 demographic.


Works the other way around too. When I was in college I did a psychology course and there were only 2 guys there including me.

Facts say otherwise: http://realbiathlon.blogspot.com/2011/11/who-shoots-better-men-or-women.html

I'd go into the psychological reasons behind why men take trade-offs that women don't, but evidently that would make me sexist.

Which has little to do why women are in fact better shots. Prime reason they are is something physical -- they have shallower respiration. Which is key to shoot tight groups. Unlike in games, in rifle matches it's tight groups that qualify. Headshots only matter in games, usually made by devs if given a rifle to use, would be a hazard at any range!

Better shooter != better shot
