Average age of ETS driver

average age of ETS2 player  

70 members have voted

  1. 1. Im Curious what the average age spread is on the forum/game. I think it would be quite a mature audience but i think we may be surprised. If you are willing please enter your age band below. Ive kept the poll private so people cant see who voted. And as an added question, tick if you have a real life driving licence also.

    • 10-17
      11
    • 18-30
      40
    • 31-50
      14
    • 51+

    • Yes i have a driving license

I am 34, With a full driving licence and try to follow as many "real world" traffic laws as i can. 

 

I'm not going to get into the argument of how old I feel as my other half said I'm 34 going on 54 (mental maturity) but what does she know 😆😆...

28 with licence and its fun driving according to the rules. The different approaches are interesting to learn like underpass crossroad where truckers coming from highway have way (typically you would expect

main road has) or 2 different systems of highway merging. To me its very appealing.

^Never stated I was old. This is fun and all but you should read before posting (again)

Its just a bit of fun and play on your quote. Dont be so serious.

I started playing pirate ETS, bought the original and still play today, but lately I'm more dedicated to ATS.
As for research, there are a lot of people who are still kids in ETS and ATS games, which makes it often very bad to play in TMP ........🤔

That’s a totally fair point and one I was conscious of when creating the poll. Ive tried to keep it as anonymous as possible and just for clarity, even as the OP I can only see how many have voted in each category, not who voted for what, so I guess the same as everyone else.

 

Interesting results so far though, most players (on the forum!) are within the 18-30 age bracket with a clear majority, and some way behind is the next band up, 31-50.  The over 50’s and under 18’s are very much  minority groups.

 

As expected, most users have a driving licences but I am surprised at how many don’t. I wouldn’t have expected a RL non driver to be interested in a driving simulator game but im clearly wrong as I guess you don’t need to be a solider to play Call of duty.

 

I also expected the majority group to the over 30’s as I had In my head that trucks and HGVs are something that would be more appealing to an older person than a 20 something. Again, I way off on that one

 

Maybe the poll also helps TMP with an indication of their player base.

I think there are more people under 18 on the servers than  just 4%. I think this is due to the fact that there are a lot of children who don't speak english properly, and most of the toppics are English. So they don't visit this forum very often. Also when I was 13/14, I didn't quite felt the need to visit any fora. But now I'm  a little older(18 years as we are speaking), I'm starting to like to spending some time a this forum. Especially talking with other 'truck drivers' since none of my friends likes these kind of simulation games.

I'm 28 with a car and PSV (bus) driving license. I play ETS2 usually when I need to unwind, and when I can't afford to do my other hobby which is recreational...

 

 

 

...driving. Fuel costs a fair bit these days.

66 and retired PSV Class 1 driver (double deckers).

 

I didn't know PSV was divided into classes, unless it's an outdated system. As soon as I passed my PSV test in 2017, I was allowed to drive both single and double deck buses; shows on my licence as Cat D and D1.
