Yes, I made a thread that polled members of this forum on whether they played/liked GW1. It got a good amount of attention, then died after a bit. I promised a follow-up that some forum members seemed to be looking forward to. I made the follow up on the same thread, but it seems that people didn't notice and seemed to shrug it off. Therefore, I saw the follow up deserving of it's own thread. The old thread was for voting/prediction and opinions. Now that we have some solid facts, this thread can be for discussing the results, and what they mean. I hope my decision won't be a big problem for anyone.
You may still vote in that thread, of course, but if you would like to discuss results, please post here.
Introduction(for those who missed the original thread)
I was wondering if only GW1 fans were excited about GW2 and after realizing our forums were biased, I posted on other forums and here are the results.
I only included the results from MMORPG.com, and ONRPG.com. The MMOSITE.com poll was a failure on all levels. Only 9 people voted, and there were actually more people posting in the thread than voting. The only real numbers that matter are the percentages on the far right. Both sites show similar results, which causes them to validate each other, and the average percentages are on the far right.
Summary, for those who don't like tables
17.27% of people polled are not excited about GW2
14.96% of people polled are not excited about GW2 and played GW1
6.25% of people polled are not exited about GW2 and liked GW1
82.73% of people polled are excited about GW2
72.96% of people polled are excited about GW2 and played GW1
58.56% of people polled are excited about GW2 and liked GW1
87.92% of people polled played GW1
Now for the real results...
GW1 Fans - 69.44% of people polled who were excited about GW2 liked GW1
Not GW1 Fans - 30.56% of people polled who were excited about GW2 disliked/didn't play GW1
Although us GW1 fans make up the majority, there is a good amount of people excited about GW2 who were not GW1 Fans.

Edit: Wow, grammar...
