i don't get what the fuss is about..

They did say they will have both female and male version variants for the same class.

Even if they play different they will probably have shared skills, etc, otherwise it won\t be same class.

From a guess, i would think 80-90% of skills will be the same. Even if theyr skill names will be diffrent, they should perform similar or the same way , no?

The only problem i see if  they split them. Forr example fire mages are male, and watter mages are females. Which i agree, i wouldn't like.

 

I actualy like the idea that a female archer will play different than a male archer.

In most. games, both female and male have same strengths, wear same armor (i can trade me armor which i wear as a female to a male character, and the male version has way more covarage lol) which is quite funny and it's not roleplaying

 

If you guys watch game of thrones,  in my opinion, for female to play equaly they would have to look like "Brienne of Tarth"

Well basically , more man like. Which i wouldn't like.

In one game, a guy was complaining in the forum, thats males can get + 1 to swordplay, while females could get + 1 sewing .I laughed so hard.the difference wasn't that big, it meant you had to work extra as a female to be better than a male in swordplay.

I'm not biased or anything, but females and males are DIFFERENT. If not everyone one of us would be gay lol.

Most games however ignore this, and thus you got used with it.

"PearlAbyss (????) We don't want to make it same and just look different.   Because we want to stick to a stupid 

aesthetic for no logical reason.  I mean god forbid our players actually make characters that represent them.

Hopefully they change this direction but I can't  understand eliminating choosing a game over an aesthetic choice if you still like the aesthetics of everything else. If you like the beauty of the world, the way armor looks, customization opinions other than gender, etc it's disappointing but shouldn't be a total blow.

There Is Always Hope!

Yeah exactly.  I'm a bit disappointed too, but game-breaking?  Over-reaction or hysterical fuss-making.

And on the other side, I quite like the idea of treating the sexes differently (e.g. the Brienne of Tarth point).  In many games in the past, females had different stats than males, e.g. males having higher STR, but females having higher DEX.  That seems sort of right and vaguely "realistic" (so far as an abstraction goes) -  a class could easily have gender variations like this, and it work well.

Although, going back to the "anti" side again, AoC tried that for a while and it didn't work well - but that's because they didn't do it right, and it was a bit of an oversight.

Whatever, the idea that choice is being removed when the choice between a female and male avatar actually counts for something and makes some sort of gameplay difference, and isn't just aesthetic, is nonsensical.

Only a vocal minority cares about this. Dont care if classes are locked by gender or not.

So diversity is making everyone the same? Sometimes I do not understand people.

Best way to disregard people. Calling them vocal minorities.

Same, no problem with it at all just like race/class restrictions.

Another feature that many don't know about Black Desert is that you don't actually quest to level up, most or nearly all quest do not give you xp.

Black Desert is not a quest based xp system.

That will give some in this thread a morsel to chew on lol.

The gender lock is no longer in effect, they decided to develop male and female of each class.  So relax guys it's a non issue now.

I on a personal note have always thought gender locking and race locking went with the lore, and has always made more sense to me. But it doesn't surprise me that the western market is becoming a bunch of people that want everything the same, why haven't these companies figured out that the current group of mmo players would like a unisex char that can tank, dps, and heal:)

Just to clear this up to finish the thread ;)

 

Genderlock is still in, but every class has a own Counter Gender. So the Summoner Girl get a "Summoner Boy" with different Skills etc. 

Hope you understand it.

Tamer, Blader, and Giant will not have 2 gender versions. Warrior/Valkyrie is Sword and Shield Sorceress/Wizard is Mage and Male/Female Archer will be all that have versions for both genders.

I don't find gender locking game breaking all though I really prefer to play a male so im hoping and praying they make a male version of the summoner girl since it my favorite type of class.

I guess I am one of the few that actually likes gender locking to a point. When it follows a theme like Valkyrie, I would really prefer not to see males involved.  When there isnt a thematic reason then of course gender locking does not make sense.  I like both and I see no problem with both existing just like it did in DAoC with specific(few) classes being gender locked.

Yeah, I have no problem with this either. There's this subset of the male gaming population that seems to still believe that if they play as a female character, there are issues with their manhood. Hell, I'm straight, and yet I can remember nearly 20 years ago when the 'girl' was my favorite character in Secret of Mana. When I had friends over to play, I always gravitated towards her. There's nothing wrong with wanting to play as a cool heroine.

 

People need to get over themselves. This kind of 'gender lock light' if fine. Play the class you're dead set on playing. Or, if that's too much for your little ego to handle, then find another you like.
