Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

The Roegedyn stat is confusing to me.I play a lot of Galka and Roegadyn  and i know for fact it  is a rarely played class.

In FFXI i see about 2-3 in a all of a jueno zone at one time and that is of around maybe 50+ players.

In FFXIV it seemed to be even more rare,i on very rare occasions ran into the Galkan like class.

The cat classes i am not surprised by,they seem to be popular.

I never really looked into the stat differences ,if there are any,i just made one Roegadyn and one of the Lalafell.

Really thinking that Roegadyn Hellsguard is thrown off. The other two surveys I found saw them lower than even the Sea Wolves.

  • Gender: Male (characters female) Prefer looking at females while i'm playing
  • Race: Miqo'te (Moon one), Roegadyn (Hellsguard) and one Lalafell Dunesfolk
  • Server: Not sure, where ever my friends end up
  • Job (DoW): Dragoon, Paladin and some type of casterish for the third toon
  • Crafting (DoH): Not sure yet
  • Gathering (DoL): Not sure yet
  • Grand Company: huh? lol
  • Playstyle: Casual

I'd like to focus DPS on one toon, Tanking on one and Healing on the last.  I love to play elves but the big bodies with the teeny tiny heads just creeps me out (must be an Asian thing to make their elves look different maybe?)  I just don't really like the style of the elves (kinda like the creepy looking soga models in EQ II, I never liked them either). I like the way most of the races look, just can't get past the teeny tiny heads on the elves....maybe if they made the heads bigger to match the bodies or shrunk the bodies and left the heads the same size.

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

Square Enix may ask MMORPG to ban my account for breaking the NDA, but... I have to do it!

 

Here's a brief video of a group of Elezen wandering just outside of Ul'dah!

 

 

Gasp!  I can't believe that I just leaked that!

 

 

I'm probably going to max at least one of each race in game.  Have a lot of hard work and preparation / plans for the next six months to make 999,999,999 gil within a couple years.

 

Come at me, FFXIV economy!

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

i think ,as some of you have pointed out, that this is easily explained by the fact the the "giants" and the "cat people" both look cool and have cool animations, the "elves" look so horrible with arms that are way too long and odd heads and necks,i am finally getting into the open beta friday, i am going to make a "cat boy"

People are excited for a game that has some interdependency and are rolling the support classes they have come to love.

I suspect this is true.  If you like old-school, group-focused MMO's, where else are you going to go?

This is one of the skewed polls where someone probably botted a couple answers. One obviously being Roegadyn Hellsguard.

I actually still like MMORPGs

8/15/13 12:54:54 AM#32

I'd consider an Elezen if they fixed the necks. I really don't know what they were thinking. It was the same thing with Elvaan in FFXI.

I'm going Lallafell since I always thought those types were really neat and scream Final Fantasy. Might be a little weird as a melee job, but I plan to main either a Scholar or White Mage anyways.

I get the distinct feeling I'm the only person I know who is actually going to play the female Roegadyn. Tall, muscular and beautiful, I actually have never had a problem with their look.

Results from a poll posted to the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn community paint an interesting picture of the community's potential make up. We weigh in on the results in this week's column.

The poll’s race breakdown data is particularly noteworthy to me. Most MMO players would expect the usual suspects (Humans, Elves, insert diminutive race here) to top the charts, but based off the data we’re seeing expect a whole lot of catgirls and boys – and giants. Lots and lots of giants. Elves (Elezen) make up only a total of 7% of respondents while Miqo’te (cat folk) make up 34% and Roegadyn (giants) come in at 23%. Yes, they even beat out Humans (22%).

Read more of Michael Bitton's FFXIV: ARR: The Group Friendly, Elf-less Community?

"Personally, I’m an elf player in most games, but ARR’s gangly, giraffe-necked Elezen just don’t do it for me at all. I’m not sure if other gamers are simply seeing what I’m seeing or people just want to be cats. Probably a little bit of column A and a little bit of column B."

 

I am guessing Michael that the pointy ears are a significant draw for you in most mmos?

"I still found the results (59%M/41%F) interesting. If the results refer to actual player gender, then there are surprisingly more female players than I would have expected for an MMO."

 

This isnt surprising in the least.

The last big survey done on WoW (by Nick Yee a couple years ago, results no longer online but some of his old work still is) showed that the female population was in the upper 30% and has showed growth every time hes done a survey.

EQ2 is in the upper 30%s as well.

With more and more females gaming, getting to 41% isnt a shock at all.

I don't see a correlation there at all.  People play support because other games don't use trinity combat? I spec for support in GW2 and it's not a trinity game.  I don't think the support roles are tied to action or tab-target combat at all, but how roles in general are implement in the combat system.

I think people play support because it is often the more complex and strategic sort of class play, especially in holy trinity combat systems.  What do the main three classes offer?  Tank - taunt, aggro builder, aggro synergy skill; DPS - pew pew pew; Heals - heal, cleanse, buff.  Of those three heals is usually the most challenging.  So you get experienced players, looking for class and combat depth, which from reading these forums I get the feeling a lot of FF mmo players fall into that category, so support is popular because it fulfills that need.

Due to the somewhat limited nature of this particular beta (as opposed to some of the more open and lengthy open betas) I am guessing this poll is not representative of much apart from  fotm snapshot for the beta community as of Beta 3. This is one of the few games lately to have a  significant launch date like back in the day (limited beta, massive hype due to original failure) that will attract substantial attention from the "starved" rpg community therefore it will be a good year before any representative picture of the community could be formed.
