What? How could anyone Ever Consider that racist? Why do people have to be so apologetic when they've not done anything wrong?

(That kinda sounded sarcastic but it isn't)

^ Correct. As of now, the reason that the USA has the most players is:

1. China censors everything
2. USA has the most internet users (I think)
3. Fizzer is American, and it spread the game through word of mouth.

Not entirely correct, they are third though trailing only China and India. I even think China doubles US in internet population..

Better question is: why are a majority of players American, and a majority of good players European?

@Tiny Koala: Funny you should say that, because while that was pretty solid and true awhile back, it's not so true anymore as we see more Americans become top players.

Simple:
1. The US is a developed country (=Internet access)
2. The site is in English, so even kids have access to it (Tyrion for example)
3. The population of the US and Canada is around 350 Mil. with is about the half of Europe (~700 Mil.)

Yeah. Not long ago, most of the talent was in Europe. Many of those players have retired and a few US players have really stepped up their game. Nations cup used to be rough on USA, but I bet it would be nice and competitive now (wasn't someone going to try doing that again?)

Well, I've did some research and found some statistics which may come to some interesting viewing!

Source = http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/warlight.net

Country Percent of Visitors (Top 5)

United States 41.2%
United Kingdom 12.2%
Poland 8.6%
Netherlands 7.7%
Japan 5.2%

So, How do people find Warlight?

Well, As suggested above since the game was created in America by Fizzer it could be spreaded through word of mouth! 7.46% of us (Arguably) has founded Warlight by word of mouth and if you wish to count it site links to warlight from 78 In fact! Well Over half of us (67.39%) founded Warlight by simply typing in "Risk Online" or "Play Risk Online" or any phrase with the word "Risk"!

Who visits Warlight?

Worrying figures? Males are greatly-over represented on the site (98%?) and Females are greatly under-represented (2%) So unless your a desperate looking for a date on Warlight your success rate in just finding a female taking your a male of course is only 2%..

Almost every player in Warlight has had some form of education mostly "Graduate School" and "Some College" very few has went to "College"

*These figures are based on the general Internet population.

* All numbers quoted above are estimations.

I am surprised people actually think American is a race. "shakes head". The ignorance is strong.

American is a nationality. You can't be racist against nationality. The correct term may be prejudice.

So, How do people find Warlight?

I found WL on Kongregate back in 2013. Kong is American. If I remember, Fizzer sold WL to a distributer. People, like me, found WL by chance.

Edit: wrong word.

I also found Warlight on Kongregate, though more recently than 2013.

Edit: not that anyone cares, but in spite of my current "plays from" flag, I'm American.

There is NO WAY that 5.2% of the people playing on WL are Japanese. In my entire time playing, I've seen ONE Japanese person. No more. I've seen plenty Germans, French, and Spanish that I'm positive have more people playing than Japan.

I was invited by a friend from some Star Wars forum, he also invited plenty more and we all played many fun games together, but only I really stayed around on WL.
At the time WL was featured on some polish humour site, which is why there were so many polish players initially.

@OxTheArtist

These numbers are all estimations and since Japan is a very low percentage (5.2%) I'm sure it is closely followed by the European countries (Spain,France,England,Netherlands) etc.
