I really, really hope SE learns from the past and installs a much better character creation system. I'm really worried they aren't, because they've repeated mentioning that you can "make a similar avatar to the one in FFXI". Not to mention,I'm already losing hope, since I've already seen similar character models in the official trailer. =\
Please, for the love of god SE, do SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I want to at least be able to choose my skin tone.
The best case scenario would be if they actually listened and made a character creation system kind of like Phantasy Star Universe, or Aion. That was a really great system, and gave good depth.
My ideal system would be:
-Facial features/Different faces
I mean... even if they just added weight and skin tone would be a drastic change. I hate how all I ever see in most MMORPGs are tall, skinny white people running around.
(On a side note, i'm not being racist. I'm Caucasian myself.)
