As of now, 3/1/2017, the ratio game has 8 female characters and 5 males. Certain rules of course are in play that prohibits creating of male counterpart, such as the elfs which are female exclusive (the dude wearing the ignis is a warrior. Ignis is suppose to be available for warriors too, but scrapped(?) to be exclusive for Rangers).


This is not about sexual favoritism, as so many will try to argue with "I like looking at girls as, why do you a dude like to stare at dudes ass?" and sort of other arguments will come to rise in this suggestion. 

Well, I cannot speak for the community, but I my opinion as a player who owns all classes is this. When I play, I dont stare at ANY ass or any appealing nature of the characters. The main reason for the suggestion is simply to address the elephant in the room, the inequality of genders, nothing more and nothing less. 


Hopefully, with the results of this poll, our Community Managers and Game Manager will do the right thing and report the results of this.


That is all
- Luca

Just going to add that isnt a poll to demand for classes to be made as soon as possible, but rather a suggestion for a response from PA about the desire of the community.

I just would like more male classes because I feel it would be a nice variation then. They could half male-exclusive classes like berserk since tamer, sorc, dk, and ranger are female exclusive (unless they're getting a counterpart)

They wont make male chars, it just isnt profitabele for them and gives them more work, this is how you see the future of a game is when they start cuting shortcuts as making only females/males for classes, is minum effort whit many people buying their costumes...

Yeah, it really shitty like this. For me personally, I just don't like playing girls in an online mmorpg. This is 2017, gender only classes and race shouldn't be a thing.

I'm still waiting on a "MALE" Dark Knight announcement.

They drop the ball on this one, I only made it for the slot and don't plan on leveling it up (Going to delete it , after I type out this thread , so they don't lie about their class numbers to their investors).

If this game keeps going the way it's going, I'm done. Tired of the big booty, big boob, with bikini mail fighters running around.

 

I actually talked to Pearl Abyss on facebook and they said that the gender lock will not stop and to make a posting about DK's having a male counter part but that was all. I'm not holding my breath on what's going to happen, but like I said, if another female class comes out, I'll be moving on and liquidating my account to some random.

Dark knight being a female only class is a bit unfair, they need to do something about getting rid of this gender lock on most classes (Except Valkyrie, Obviously)

Or at least add some new awesome male classes to balance the scale.

While i can appreciate the need for many young males to see bouncy mammaries and tight butts and ridiculous high heels it's stupid to gender lock almost everything. I'm a girl and I don't want to look at female butts and floppies thanks much.  Lets break the mold and put a male option with adjustable package size in the character creater it would be the only mmo I know of to allow the adjustment of the male naughty bits.  It's only fair, if you can put more cleavage on the girls I want to be able to put more package on my male toons.  I am also a bit tired of the ridiculous high heels on all the footwear with the possible exception of the maid footwear which is also not a flat.  I would like a touch more reality in my attire thank you much and high heels do not work in the dirt and muck and what is with the stupid puffy skirts that almost look more like a tutu (ballerina garb) than a dress.  if you're sticking with the anime type body styles and costuming at least put in some much more oriental looking costumes with real leggings or pants and practical footwear and headwear.

Please, no more heels. Who in their right mind is going to go fight in a war in heels! Muskan shoes was the biggest disappointed I've ever had, they look so great, but then they have a massive heel in the back, it just doesn't seem all that effected of a boot to wear in combat when you look at it aesthetically.

I'm all for male counterparts with slight differences but not a straight up addition of male or female choice. So like (wizard/witch) (warrior/valkyrie) (ninja/kunoich) (musa/maehwa) and i believe this will be their plan going forward with new classes. Unless they get really lazy and just straight up add male or female choice for each class or shop item that allows for a sex change. The next natural step would be to allow other races to play as other classes.

But i'm more for the male/female counter part because that gives us more classes.

Some ideas for male counterparts could be:

Sorcerer--> Warlock

Ranger --> Pathfinder or Archer or Hunter

Tamer --> Summoner or Beastmaster

Dark knight--> Warden or Paladin or Dragoon (struggling for ideas with this one)

Berserker --> Amazon (apparently female giants are rare so the lore could explain a lack of a female berserker counterpart)

After several hundred hours i start to see myself in my character and that character becomes closer to being me. It can be weird for some people to see themselves in their character in the opposite gender and start questioning them self. It's weird to me when people make their waifus and fall in love with their character while seeing themselves in their character. I'm a male that mains tamer because I like the play style. If there was a male version that would have been nice as I'm a lazy mmo er and don't want to switch later.

On the note of sex sells, I get that companies want more money but I'm getting tired of it .-. I want my tamer and other females to look badass not like a sex toy. but i think im different than most tamers in that by looking at their discord...

As a male who prefers to play male characters the only male class I found at all interesting was wizard and I had to heavily customize the young wizard face to get a look I wanted. The rest of the male classes seem to be melee bound and do not interest. Me much. Where are the ranged classes for males? Where's the variety?
