at the moment SE have stated that they do not have male miqo'te as a playable race in ffxiv so this is for everyone who would like this race to be playable, and give people a chance to show SE how they feel.

I and many others would like this as a playable race and would not see any harm in having it in ffxiv, SE will make FFXIV fantastic either way and i'm not trying to go against their ideas and plans for ffxiv but rather just to voice an opinion. please vote and let me know what you think ^^

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXFLXts55Sg this is a video from ffxi to show what male miqo'te could look like.

one last note, i know some people will want to vote NO and that's fine, but just try and understand that for some of us this is a big deal, think of something that you would love to be included in ffxiv but wasn't currently there and how you would feel when peole would simply dismiss it because they don't feel the same as you.

thanks for voting ^^


[EDIT] Well... it's nice to see the poll function doesn't work. Any tips on how to fix that? ^^;;;

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

I dont care about Male Miqo'te or female Rodaegyn

I actually think it would be cool to have an option to choose the age of your character
such as..

1. youth
2. adult
3. elderly

and different age will give you different looks to choose from

I'm actually expecting different ages, especially if we don't get any new races. And when I say "expecting," I mean both that I anticipate it, and that they **** well better.

Yes it would have been nice, and yes they did shoot themselves in the foot a bit by not including them (at least as far as we know), but them's the breaks. It really shouldn't make or break the game, and it'll be fine with me as long as they come up with some justifiable lore to explain it, even if it's something shallow like FFXI's explanations.

EVERYONE would rather see Moogles than Male Miqo'te. {Edit: Or at least me and the guy above me would.} But I doubt they would have two fat little plump people races, so we can give that up.
Lots of fans want Male Miqo'te so I'd be happy to see it. Not sure if I'd play one; doubtful.

In general I like most races that SE makes for its FF games, I'd like to see at least two more... please keep Galkas male only.

Yes, I know you can create giant busty muscular females which would look cool, I've seen it done in the Mabinogi "Giant" race, but it just doesn't fit right in my mental picture of Galkas.

However, male mithras do actually exist and we saw one in WoTG.
I think if they aren't going to add new races they should at least add that.
People have only been talking about it for 5+ years.

And yes this is a dead horse but nothing is ever going to get done if the community doesn't keep telling SE what it wants. They obviously can't figure it out on their own.

Another thing is... all the races, (midgets, big strong guys, humans, elves) have been done in other games. Even the mithras have been copied in various Korean MMORPGs. A male feline character is something people haven't really been able to make in any MMO; it's fresh and new.

I think S.E. should put the counterparts to the Roegadyn an Miqo'te and add another racewhether it be moogle or what ever. Is it jes me or does the male mithra look similiar to what the new miqo'te look like? As far as ears and tail.

I like this idea, I made a character on Aion that looked (and sounded) about 15 and I really liked how he turned out. And while I'm not really into RP it seemed like he had more to prove versus the "older" characters.

Plus there was the time super tall amazonian female character came up to me and said: "Whats up ****" and I hit her with "Sheesh lady, you're like the same age as my mom"..."her" reply to that was pretty much unprintable. lol
