With a year of game play under its belt, City of Heroes accumulated a number of statistics from the clash between heroes and villains. Here are but a few:
More than 10 million characters were created in City of Heroes, of those 10 million:
o 27 percent were of mutant origin
o 24 percent were of magic origin
o 18 percent were of natural origin
o 16 percent were of science origin
o 15 percent were of technology origins
The 10 million characters created in City of Heroes is equivalent to the combined populations of Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston and Philadelphia.
More than 100,000 super groups were created in City of Heroes, which is more than twice the number of Boy Scout troops that exist in the United States.
Paragon City in the City of Heroes game is around the same size as Manhattan at 23 square miles.
More than 80 million hours of City of Heroes have been played, which is equal to more than 9,000 years if played by one person. Nine thousand years ago man made the first fermented drinks in history, according to a recent discovery in China.
More than 1.1 trillion influence, which is used as currency in City of Heroes, is in circulation in Paragon City. The United States’ Congressional Budget Office’s 2005 annual report on the budget outlook forecasts a cumulative deficit of $1.3 trillion from 2005 to 2014 for the U.S. federal budget.
