True, if it was 50.1% vs 49.9%, then yes, the actual results may be inconclusive.
However, you can in no way act like or even claim that there weren't enough people surveyed. It's true that we don't know their survey methods, but we can't say they were incorrect either.
All I'm saying is that 250k is a MONSTROUS sum of people to survey and any results other than a virtual tie is more than enough to come to a conclusion about the entire population in question.
I'm almost 100% sure you didn't read what you just quoted lol.
The whole point of the post you're replying to is me explaining PRECISELY why 250k is NOWHERE NEAR the amount of people the ACTUALLY surveyed.
The received 250k votes
in TOTAL over 30 individual heats/polls.
Therefore, the total number of voters
across 30 individual polls cannot be equal to the number of total votes
divided by 30 gives us a very rough average of 8333 votes
and if we assume that each was from a person who only voted once, voters
per poll. Even if that figure is not precise, it is nowhere near 250,000 for quite obvious reasons.
By your logic, the actual number of votes
would be 250,000 x 30 = 7.5 MILLION votes
That is obviously not the case as the article specifically states they only received 250k votes over the course of the competition.
Please read the post again

It's also the best selling Battlefield game ever.
Apparently, that equates to trending downwards.Edited by GrizzleBoy - 4/4/12 at 5:25pm
