    So I keep up with all the various WildStar related pod/vodcasts and it appears a good chunk of the big Community personalities will be rolling Dominion on some PvP server. Was just listening to the latest edition of WildCast (excellent podcast btw) and at the end JayBee talks about the cast being in some meta-alliance with SVG, Guild Umbra and the MogNation.

    I for one will 100% be rolling a Mordesh <REDACTgineer> / scientist if the class reveal lives up to my expectations for a big gun toting badass. I know Chua are 'cute' and all but c'mon we need some community players to stand up and be counted for the Exiles, to lead the charge with the banner of war. Down with tyranny!

    You'd be surprised to know that, in the RP community, there is no love for the Dominion. There have been numerous Cassians who have defected, IC intentionally or through unfortunate circumstances, because of low populations Dommie side.

    That aside, I wouldn't worry till a few months after launch. WildStar is still relatively unknown, but it's picking up speed. I'm sure we'll wake up plenty of dormant Exiles from cryosleep in the interim.

    I'm guessing the Aurin avatar and sig are from the pre-mordesh release.. I personally was sold on the Exiles when I watched the "Meet the Exiles" video.

    The WildStar PR seems to favor the Exiles slightly, fan media and major organizations seems to tilt fairly strongly towards the Dominion, and as Mr. Rufflez mentioned, the roleplayers aren't a big fan of those domineering Dominion guys. :p

    I dunno, I kind of like how things are ATM. I'd like Carbine to put out a little more Dominion PR as well. I'd like to feel as much of an underdog as possible as an Exile. XD

    Yeah I was sold on them with the Aurin but after learning about the REDACTgineer I definitely want to play a bad ass Mordesh (and Mordesh just have sooo much RP flavor waiting to be utilized).

    Blame racism. I personally feel that the Exile races are far less interesting than the Dominion ones.

    robots > rocks
    brains > bunnies
    lizard-cat-gazelles > rotters
    coiffed humans or filthy humans, still boring humans

    That may be an oversimplification but the Exiles do not have a single race I would consider superior to its Dominion counterpart. And I would need opiates to care less about RP than I currently due, so that's not a concern for me at all.

    Update: alternate comparisons in case Draken are analogous to Granok

    brains > walking fur coats
    humans vs. humans
    marauding amalgamation of Australian wildlife > stone face cigar aficionados
    robots > stiffs

    I usually play humans.

    I dislike the posh humans.

    Choice was simple for me! Exile all the way.

    I don't believe these are the correct pairings.
    Science Races: Chua and Mordesh
    Savage Races: Draken and Granok
    exiles do get shafted on the Bunny vs Robots.

    I could easily see granok in a stalemate against mechari. Both are tough skinned and durable people, the granok perhaps more so to make up for their lacking smarts. Everyone assumes the aurin are this weak, pathetic, cutesy race but I know there's more too them. Chua are too destructive for their good and will inevitably cause collateral damage on their side. Mordesh could win against anyone, especially draken since they are very scientific and aren't averse to pushing the boundaries in order to get it done. Humans are an obvious dead-even fight.

    I will agree though that the Dominion seem to have an overall better cast of races. The only blemish I see in their ranks are the chua.

    Exile fan - I really like the mordesh, the aurin and the granok.
    They hit themes that I like - tragic arrogant beautiful that fell - very much like the Irda from dragonlance.
    The aurin are nature lovers , nurturers - enjoy that theme / bent from my early table top wood elf days.
    Granok - surly burly

    The granok defeated the mechari before they even got their hands on weaponry, don't know why that's even a concern.

    If the Mechari can take advantage of the Draken's obsession with honor so can the Mordesh "Here's a trophy for beating us in a fight. No it is not laced with a dust-based contagion created to de-construct Draken DNA breaking it apart into its base components. Trust us." The mordesh don't even have to see the Draken to kill them.

    PvP Community might be heavier on Dominion, but both the PvE and RP Communities seem to hate them.

    Plus, from the surveys taken on the Livestreams, people seem to be 50/50. Maybe all the Exile lovers just aren't forum/podcast/blog types?
