Relating to something we see complained about a lot.

I was trying to figure out why I don't play my Tamer more, and I think I finally found the answer. I'd prefer her to look different. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the cute prepubescent Kpop look. I'm no loli/anime fan, but I do kinda like the idea of the little girl, that slaughters proffessional adults. Like HitGirl!

But when I first made my tamer, that's not what I was going for. I spent hours trying to make her look more mature, less weeby, and generally a slightly badass ninja-lite with a kitty. With, limited success... I could kinda get her to look okay, but the costumes and animations ruined the look. Eventually I just went for the traditional Cutesy little girl. But it just doesn't quite give the feel I wanted.

Over the months, I've come across a couple of other instances of similar things, a guild member who couldn't get his Musa to look Elderly-noble enough, some random who wished their sorceress was more brutal-monster, and less exotic-dancer, plenty of people who wished their 'zerkers weren't neanderthals.

So, any similar tales of woe out there?

 

n.b. This is not about gender locks, please don't waste space whinging about that. Nor is it a petition for change, I'd just like some anecdotes to make me feel slightly less alone. If it happens to encourage change, hurray, but I'm not pushing for it.

You just have to try harder. Mine is a red head. I admit. It would be better if the presets for every class was more versatile.

So I gathered :P

I did eventually conform, and make her a slutty child... Just, took me a while.

How can anyone not like the look of tamer when she is the kawaii queen 

I didn't say I don't like the look. Just that I didn't want a character that looked like that...

Although, if you want reasons people give for not liking it, here's some I've heard in the last couple of weeks:

  • "I don't want to look like a child"
  • "I don't want to look like an over-sexualized child"
  • "Why are there so many slutty costumes for a 12 year old?"
  • "What kind of pedo would play that?"
  • "What is this Burikko shit?"
  • "Their voices are so annoying"

So basically, some of the people that look at Tamers think "Sexy child? Kawaii!" and others think "Sexualised child? That's disgusting."

Personally, I have no issue with it. Burikko is a perfectly legal, and generally acceptable, or at least tolerable, (if a little odd) thing in real life, no reason it shouldn't be in games.

And as I said, Tamers are adorable. But they are just Cute. They're not awesome, imposing, impressive, intimidating, or anything like that. 
(From a purely aesthetic pov, that is)

Yea, I'd probably play my non tamer classes more if more of the costumes / outfits had boots and full body armor *shrug* I still play them like Sorc / valk / Kuno, recently made a warrior and the armor looks bad ass... just not a fan of his kit.

With Tamer shes cute (I like cute things and heck I survived a ganking b/c they thought she was cute) and most of her sets while not really boots(except that cooking costume... those boots are really nice) or full body armor, have flat shoes which IMO is better than heels by a hellava lot...

I made mine a little bit like Punky Brewster. But you can probably change her height a little.

All my characters looks like children and dolls except my maehwa, I couldn't make her look cute so instead I made her look real with minimum size chest.(yet not small enought, unfortunately she's my main T-T)

 

Look at the bright side, yours not limitedly bad like zerk or pre-wizard(or in my case, I want flat&short). But you, you can still make yours look not Korean. If you don't like the skills, why playing the class in the first place?

ive seen plenty of mature looking tamers.. 
but that might be because as a tamer main i like to check out other tamers
and most ppl will just pass over all tamers thinking they  all look loli

i mean if you want to play a tamer that looks cute go for it, mine is small and cute, but also i dont see why they limited it
if ppl want to play mature looking tamers thats fine too i really liked the character creator 
the game has such a great character creator but limit it based on class bias and stereotypes for the most part 
they should allow full customization over characters id like to make my main's bust size smaller
especially since i swear every every costume in game increases her bust and shrinks her waist 

that said i do feel bad for zerkers.. i get it they are giants but still

I wanted to play as a kid, male, and the closest to that is the Tamer, so after some time I got my tamer to look like a little kid, problem is every costume and outfit is like 150% ultra sloot...  liie come on...  closest thing to a gender neutral look I could do is the jester troupe costume you craft.  

Anyway, when it comes down to it, I don't really care as my main warrior is perfect, but I do wish there was more choice when it comes to female outfits than just slut or like ultra slut.

Would play Sorc more if they didn't have rag cardigans that clipped through themselves.

Or Rangers if they had trousers.

Or Kunoichi if they had trousers.

Or Tamer if they had trousers.

Or Valkyrie if they had trousers.

Zerker.

If they took away the hunchback and made the head look different I would play them.
