    Ok so in the current "Watch Wildstar" census polls nearly twice is many gamers who identify as female registerd for Exile faction (9.7%) as opposed to Dominion (5 %) Were as most other stas are pretty much evenly spread.

    http://watchwildstar.com/census#share-Exiles-dividedby-player_gender

    Now I don't really follow polls and such too closely but this is quite a difference. I would say largely brought about by the Aurin race which make up half the number of female players on the Exile side that registered in the census.

    So uuum...... why ?

    I would say internet polls are about as useful as a bag of snails in a gun fight when it comes to getting useful statistics.

    Okeeeee.......so if 1 female keeps putting it with the Exiles then you get a picture like it is now?

    Bad poll = bad

    There is only one single answer to this: AURIN ESPER.

    Not that every female will be playing a Aurin Esper, but I already know tons of female friends that are planning to play excatly that. And I've to confess that I've been very tempted by a Aurin Esper myself. Very. Even without being a girly girl.

    But yeah, gonna play Dominion instead. And something else than Esper.

    I like snails with garlic and chilli sauce. Either before and after a gun fight..works for me.

    Ok so All polls can be skewed and all statistics are relative. Derp.....I know that.....however assuming players registered there preferences in good faith and taking into account that 94 of the players identifying as female that chose Aurin which is approx half of the female player base registering for Exile which corresponds directly with the difference in Exile to Dominion female player numbers in the poll.

    Rocket science .....really ?

    I'm just asking why, not questioning the validity or usefulness of the data.

    I would say Aurin race in general and maybe to a lesser extent the Mordesh. The only other difference I can point to is the Exiles having a more "Firefly" feel while the Dominion has a more "Star Wars: Empire" feel.

    honestly, a bag of snails is way more useful than an internet poll.

    considering all the exile species have females that look halfway decent (not like...beauty-wise, but general aesthetic-wise) while the dominion have humans and...........ugly robots and weird dragon people that are both designed to be scary, but the females are designed as fap material. Which works about as well as ketchup and chocolate work together.

    Because 99.9% of people interested in Wildstar don't have the faintest idea of what 'Watch Wildstar' is, or bothered to vote?

    Plus... the internet poll vs. snail deathmatch. It really says everything needed.

    You aren't serious, are you? Scary women are the sexiest women.

    I'm afraid the data on Census may be awfully skewed based on sample set. For example:

    According to the 3765 respondents so far, only 7.4% are women. There are 1.3% who responded private and 0.6% as other, but even if those are all women too that's still only 9.3% of 3765 (350 non-male).

    Additionally, of the 3765 queried, wholly 57% intend to play on PVP servers, implying the remaining 43% intend to play on a combination of PVE, PVE-RP and PVP-RP servers. This is somewhat upside down if we use other MMOs as indicators of general public preference (at least in the US. EU is about 50/50).

    I haven't run the numbers to try to determine any sort of proportion or modes of the census population, but from previous empirical data we can hypothesize that the Watch Wildstar census does not yet possess a sufficient sample size to provide accurate assessment of female player preferences. :)

    One word. Aurin.

    Personally, I find scary women to be scary, and not much else. That said, it's hard to find female Draken scary, unless they have some of those hideous face options like the skull one.

    I actually think the Aurin and Mechari have the best females, while I think Mordesh and Mechari have the best males..

    I might be biased for robots.. even if I plan on playing Exile.

    I would have to say Aurin as well. It does seem kinda obvious.
