Is the 80% prediction wrong? Will you be a M or F bard?

I'm undecided personally. It will hinge on whether I can create a male elf that doesn't look like he has a rod shoved... you know where.

    Likely female, for 2 reasons. 1, I'm a straight male, so I'd rather look at a female character all day than a male one. And let's face it, these ones are pretty hot. 2, Female characters in-game get treated better than male characters.

    I'll probably make a female bard for CB, and if FW seems like a game that I'll end up playing for a while, I'll make a male bard for OB.

    Male bard all the way. Doesn't bother me if my char looks "elf-like".

    Returning to FW. The other game failed T.T

    Im going to be a female bard, but I am female irl. I do occasionally make male toons, but usually when I do I use them for storage alts or my stall.. You know all the grunt work stuff :P

    I will probably roll a female, since I'm one, so it's a bit more comfortable. I sorta wanna make a reeeeally girly male elf, though, just for the heck of it.

    BTW, what's the 80% prediction?

    I'm also wondering about this whole "80% prediction." Anyway, I'll be playing a male bard, cause I'm a guy. It feels weird to play female characters (*cough* even though I played veno in PWI *cough*), unless I have to due to gender-locking and whatnot >.>

    I won't make up my mind for sure until I can see the full cusotmization of both male and female bards. However I will most likely be playing a female bard.

    Yes, and I am a guy.

    Ahh, i said the same thing about Jade Dynasty... but then i found out there was a marriage option!? OH EM GEE, not so sure about FW though. I for one am going Male Bard regardless if their is a marriage option, since in almost all games i go female =P haha, i'm a dude btw.

    LF>Female Bard Wife! Pm me [:, lol.

    Btw.. i'm interested my prediction became a thread :O, more posts pls :3

    I think the 80% prediction is that 80% of all the bards are going to be females.

    Btw, I am going to to be a fem bard. Im a guy and rather look at a female bard than a male bard for 6 hours

    I'm a male that only plays female characters. Vampire is going to be my first male character by choice, but my main is going to be a female bard.

    A few weeks ago, I was certain I wanted to go against my norm and play a male Bard, but I doubt I actually will. I am a female in real life, and while I don't think there is anything wrong with playing the opposite gender, I'm not sure I feel comfortable doing it. It kinda makes me feel like I am...misrepresenting myself, I guess? I'm not sure. All I know is that I have always like identifying my game characters with myself, and I am not a guy. D:

    Plus, if the Bard becomes my main, with a female char I can do couple activities with my boyfriend (whose main will definitely be male).

    So, yeah, another female Bard checking in! :3

    i dont care what your excuses are but if youre a male and you play as a girl character all i can say is...you guys need to go outside and get a girl. you know how awesome it is? you can look at her eyes..you can feel her soft...shiney..silky hair..guess what you can do things with her! yah sounds good? i know you guys can do better than making a 3d sprite bend over...XD

    and for the guy who actually have a girl..i suggest you find a better looking one since..your current one didnt satisfy you...btw ill play as a male bard because..i am one?

    I can't say I have anything specifically against people who play the opposite gender buuuut I'm definitely not one of them.

    Male Bard will be my main :>, Might make a Vamp too, but because I'm interested in what their play style will be.

    It feels wrong to misrepresent myself, so the only male character I ever played was a Barbarian (A class from PWI that can only be male) who was named BtwImaChick XD. Awkward misunderstandings are awkward, so I always go for my real gender.
    So excited for phase 1! I've been waiting for months! WHOO FW!
    ...Oh... Well, there's always phase 2, isn't there...?
    ....Phase 3...?
    Will I be left out again?

    I have nothing against males playing as a female at all, unless it gets to the point which they're claiming it's their actual gender IRL. However, it makes me laugh when their reason for playing a female is something like - 'It's nothing homo or weird, I just prefer to stare at a female character', because that's normal. [Sarcasm]

    Someone briefly admitted the reason in an earlier post, that players treat them differently as a female. Sadly dude, that's because they think you have **** irl, not your pixel moobs. I think if more people were honest like him, their reasons for being a female is the the slight difference in which they're handled with players in game. But the time will come where someone asks their IRL gender, and they have to awkwardly bs their way and use the, 'yeh it's sooo cll looking at girl pixel, but i defo a real man in real'.

    Just like to add, that 80% prediction he's referring too is completely made up. I think it will be very close to 50/50, just that, 99% of male characters will actually be male, and 50% of the females will be male too.

    I'l be a female bard, I'm a girl for real so well..
    I always play female chars (unless gender locked ofc)

    The thing is. People will usually call you "he" anyway... >.> since most ppl are guys and a lot of them play female chars.
    I personally don't care if someone plays a char of their own gender. As long as they're honest about it.

    I'm a guy and I play female bard. I'll gladly play male elf if he looks half like in WoW. Unfortunately he looks very emasculate here, despite the tall size. Even the male human in this game looks too "soft", but nowhere as bad.

    For an example other than WoW you guys should see the male mage in A*ka, skinny as hell but looks like one badash ****, and the warrior looks just buff-dumb-ready-to-fight.

    Guys that look like girls? I don't need them.

    The males are too feminine for you, so to counter that you're being a female character. - facepalm -

    I have female colleagues and male friends that I'm OK looking at. I stay the hell away from drags. I want to be comfortable with what I have to look at when I'm playing game. Whenever I see a male elf bard, I ask him, why man. I see the point of male elf warrior "I look pretty and I'm still pwning you." But male bard? You gotta see their armors, I call them San Francisco waitresses.
