Of course, it could be too, depending on how they gather this data (on created v played characters) that everyone playing has created roughly 1 character in each class. And my giant conspiracy is completely bogus. Basically, everyone who plays has at least one of each class. Therefore, all then classes get even distribution. But I like my fantasy concept better!

The data is based purely on a person being online, nothing more. You could log on a toon 5 minutes a day, and if that's when somebody was scanning, they'd find it, but not your other toon you have on for hours and hours.Of course, in theory with enough people conducting scans, it wouldn't be an issue, they'd get a representative sampling, but even then, there's nothing in the data provided that would allow you to determine the playtime.

It would be even more remarkable and defy expectation if during the random sampling you describe, an almost equal percentage of classes was present. That is even less likely than my concept of a system of traits matching human choices of varying psychological profiles. Mine is explainable. Yours implies that some kind of spontaneous symmetry occured in a random sample. If yours is the case, then I would just have to chuck my reasoning powers and bow to the mystic dream engine that is WoW.
