    If this thread as already been made here, I didnt see it.
    Anyway, just curious as to what everyone would play as mostly. This question is regarding your main, not alts. I'm old fashion so Id probably play male. Yes there are some female characters that look pretty bad ass (female Draken for example), but in a RP and social aspect it would feel weird playing the opposite sex. Ive met a lot of guys who play female characters and I have no problem with that, sure it seems and feels weird socializing with them but that probably comes from me getting too immersed in the world.

    What are your thoughts? :rolleyes:

    (Lets try to keep this thread anti sexist please,lol)

    I never play a female, ever. I just can't get into that as I RP and do not know how to get into a female role. So, all males for me.

    Female playing Female.

    and hubby will be Male playing Male.

    the biggest reason i've seen from guys that play female chars, is the following:
    "If I'm going to be looking at somethings butt for hours upon hours, I'd rather be looking at a chick's butt than a guy's butt."

    Where's the "both" option?

    I don't exclusively play one gender. Most people I know don't either. :)

    The idea of females kicking arse is pretty amazing to me so I roll female if given the choice.

    On an RP server I play nothing but males. On a non RP server I'll play both.

    I honestly don't know. Likely I will play a male mechari as I'm a guy but I usually play female characters too.
    However, I find some roles just don't fit female characters. For instance I mostly see female characters as ranged and stealth characters, the more in-the-face playstyles better suit males. And let's not discuss how male models look in robes or swinging healing spealls, as I'm sure a lot of guys like that but it just doesn't seem right to me.

    I play female characters because they usually look better than males. In most mmos I played, males are always bulky characters, which isn't my style so I hardly ever play these refrigerators on legs.

    My main'll be a female, and probably several of my alts, but I also plan to play male alts. It depends on the characters! ;)

    Definitely yes, even if its a male stature Mechari, I've never quite understood the "I'll make a girl as I have to stare at it's ass all day" argument. I mean, I get the ass thing, but a digitized cartoonish arse?

    I'm a male so I play as a male. If you're not transgender, I never understood why you'd want to play as a female.

    I know it's a small sample size, but the fact that there are more males who are playing as females then they are total females total sort of confirms the suspicions I've had about MMOs.

    Well in this game at least, it looks like you can make more lithe male characters which is what I'm gonna do. Obviously no game engine could possibly capture the subtle details of my Adonis-like body but what you take what you can get.

    Why should you have suspicions of me playing a female character? Would it not be just as wrong as a male writer creating a female part? If it isn't a sex change, then it shouldn't have to be sexual at all. I don't completely lock myself from making males.

    It's not like I walk around saying "I'm a girl irl" so I can get all the good stuff. :D

    I'm not suspicious of you, but the fact that there are more males playing as females than their are total females confirms my original suspicion about MMOs: it is almost entirely made up of males, and the majority of females you see are just a male in disguise.

    I have nothing against the transgender community, and I actively vote to treat every American citizen the same regardless of who they are (race, religion sex, gender, orientation, etc.) It's just a thought I had about MMOs - having never played one - and an observation that confirms my thoughts.
