I got bored and had some free time so for the sake of fun, i gather 3 information from the 1st 500 post in the give away thread and made this stat list. (from 500 valid post, 398 state their starting class)

- Race -
Elezen: 89 (17.8%)
Hyur: 134 (26.8%)
Lalafell: 115 (23%)
Miqo'te: 106(21.2%)
Roegadyn: 56 (11.2%)

- City State -
Ul'dah: 134 (26.8%)
Limsa: 118 (23.6%)
Gridania: 248 (49.6%)

- City of Gridania - (pop.248)
Elezen: 52
Hyur: 60
Lalafell: 63
Miqo'te: 56
Roegadyn: 17

- Class - (total: 398)
>DoW<
Pugilist: 71
Gladiator: 58
Archer: 49
Lancer: 32
Marauder: 30

>DoM<
Conjurer: 72
Thaumaturge: 31

>DoL<

>DoH<
Blacksmith: 7
Goldsmith: 4
Weaver: 3
Alchemist: 3
Carpenter: 2
Culinarian: 2
Leatherworker: 2
Armorsmith: 1


Feel free to ask information base on Class/City/Race, i will get u the stats :D

For example: How many Lalafell wants to be Lancer at the start

Answer: 32 out of 398 people wants to be Lancer at the start, 7 out of 32 are going to pick Lalafell.


*Update the stat to 500, i think i will stop here 500 is a good amount to have an insight. Better place a disclaimer here: I key those data into excel by hand, i check b4 i move to the next poster. But i'm human so expect maybe 3~5% error and tired eyes, haha. :D

I tried this programmatically but ran into issues with people listing more than just what race. Good job!

No love for Elezen and Roegadyn. Gridania is sure going to be popular though.

Wow, very nice work! I'm kinda curious as to the number of prospective Lalafell lancers, they seemed to be pretty frequently chosen from a quick scan of the thread.

You are awesome for posting this. R^+1!

I'm shocked that Lalafell are so popular! I expected Hyur to place 2nd, but wow -- I expected more from Miqo'te (although 3rd place is still pretty impressive for a single-*** playable race). No surprise Roegadyn are dead last; and I'm pretty sure the elf craze has died down over the years, so... Yeah. All in all, popularity race-wise, I'm not too shocked.

Everyone loves the beautiful elf forest-city... No surprise there.

What about the % of (main) class/job choice in general?

This is really great, thanks for your work in compliling this. I've been really curious as to what it looks like will be the least and most popular races and cities. I like to be in the least popular stuff just to be a little different so this is great :)

I'm glad elezens are at the bottom (besides roegadyns, but I want to play female so...). I did want to start in gridania but I don't want to be in the most popular city, so uldah it is.

Can you by any chance tell us how many posters named archer as their main and how many of them were elezens? And also how many elezens in uldah? Thanks :D

I look forward to seeing more numbers as you get farther into the topic.

These stats remind me a lot of XI's census with Hume (Hyur) and Taru (Lalafel) being the most popular races, though this is on a much smaller scale I'm curious to see if XIV will have a census and what the rankings will be.

Yeah, pretty much every poll I've seen has roughly 50% of players starting in Gridania, which means... expect to make no progress in Gridania for the first week or so of release. Particularly if you don't have a great system, expect a lot of lag and crashes.

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.

Goood job on the information collection thus far!

Hmmm...kinda makes me want to rethink my start city as Gridania, but nah something about it just calls to me.

It's interesting to see what race ppl chose. In FFXI, as I'm sure many others have already stated, there were big penalties in regards to race and classes. It's great that ppl can be free to choose what race they wish, and that they will start out on an equal playing field no matter which class they choose.

With all those ppl starting in Gridania. Be ezer to find pts, and ppl to do guildleaves with. 15ppl(belive is max pt size). Max size guildleave pts should be fun at those lvls.

Also I like how ppl are putting what class they going to be, yet it doesn't even say in the question. Just race and starting city. No class.

That's an extremely optimistic outlook on the situation. One might even say, naively so.

This is fantastic info! Even if its not official or concrete or whatever it, at the very least, gets the FFXIV juices flowing. I was wanting to try Thaumaturge,b ut I was concerned it would be too popular. Now I feel better even if its a placebo effect. Now to choose between Roegadyn and Hyur...

When i first saw the Eorzea map i could of swore i saw Limsa to the west, Gridania in the middle and Ul'dah to the east but now i see Ul'dah is really south of Gridania.
There seems to be 2 other towns or cities on the map.
There is one east of Gridania (thats the one i thought was Ul'Dah) and another north west of it.

I see many are choosing Gridania over the others but i bet when they see the other cities they might change their minds.

This is how i see it so far (just speculation):
Ul'dah is a fairly big and busy place like whitegate which is still alive lighted up at night time.
You would prolly see people all over in Ul'Dah

Limsa looks like a cross between ru'lude and sandy set in sky. Elevated very nice with ships and ocean beneath.
Plenty of space with many people all over but not crowded.

Gridania seems like it has much more trees and is naturally magical with long pathways like Windurst.
Very long walkways with many people but the huge spread out areas will give you even more space.

One busy, one casual and one peaceful.
