Trying to figure out why males make women characters

I would think they are Beta forever aloners with no real chance of dating or talking to girls. Now before the white knights get angry that is only my opinion and remember everyone has their own opinion.

Hmmm... Well in this game, genderlocked classes are a big variable, so we'll have to think of another example.

In many other MMOs I have played, i like to have a variety of all genders and races when i make multiple characters. I like to have a balanced 'team' of alts, so to speak. Other than my reason, I'm sure it just bouils down to personal preference. :)

Its just a toon mate. No connection to real life needed.

I had male and female toons, fat and slim, tall and small, white, asian, black and mixed ... some where even green or red.

Opinions..like assholes...everyone has one.

1. Female characters usually get much more attention from developers.

2. They get MUCH better clothes/cosmetics etc.

3. If going to look at something for hours/days/weeks/years on end...I'd rather look at something 'aesthetically' pleasing to me.

A lot of it has to do with perspective as well. Do you tend to play from the first person perspective in an RPG game, or a third person perspective? I tend to be the latter. The characters I play aren't me, but characters that I've created with their own backstories and relationships, much like the characters of a book written in the third person.

Well, it's either:

-Genderlock

OR

-This is just a game. Not real life or a representation of real life. So try to seperate those two things, Mr. Neckbeard.

I dont care either way about others, doesnt say anything about them. I normally play males but right now even the mirror classes have different skills between them and as far as rumours go - awakenings too.

If you looked at the threads on the forum, before CS prices were revealed in CBT2. The main complaints was that classes are genderlocked. Males play the female, because they either want to go on a adventure with their waifu or they have no choice, because class is locked to a gender. Only females can be rangers, so if you like archer archtype, you are basicly f*cked and can only play a female avatar.

I think majority of the males wants to play with their new waifus though.

Genderlock, when the Blader comes out. I'll be a male like every other MMO I've played.

Are you saying that you look at your characters sexually? Because I personally never really notice my character while playing

In BDO, you are basically pigeonholed into it depending on class preference. 

In other games, the best reason I ever heard was from a guildie it was "If I have to look at someones ass all day on my screen, I'd prefer it be female"  Brought on a pretty good laugh over TS.

I am not gonna lie, I would pick a girl even if the game was not Gender lock. When I'll get bored looking at my character I'll make a male to keep things fresh.

Some guys use characters as eye candy, so they play what they will enjoy seeing.

Some guys identify as females/transgendered

Some guys only play for mechanics, immersion means nothing for them

I care a bit about immersion, so genderlocked classes do affect me to an extent.

If Zerker awakening wasn't a mid ranged cannon, I'd be all over sorc or valk

I like to look at Girls since i'm a hetero sexual male and that's also the reason i don't like to look at bulky males all day easy isn't it?

Honestly i'm not a role player so i don't see my char as a representation of myself or something like that   so why should it be male if i don't like to look at a male ass the whole time i play.,...

Well considering that I want to play as an archer, and the ranger gameplay looks pretty sweet, I'm going to have to go with this:

genderlocked classes make this the dumbest post ever.

That said, I would much prefer to play as a guy, but genderlocked classes.

Do you always make threads that are fairly pointless by nature to just burn time or? You just made a thread antagonizing people about spending their real money on the game. Now you're berating them for their character choice with the excuse as it being an opinion.
