If that's the case then they should have delayed the release. Because there is many more reason than just that for a delay. This is one of the most problem filled games I've seen in a while. You'd expect more, especially from a company like SE. That being said Squaresoft > SE

I see no problem with an all-female Miqo'te... there's the all-male Roegadyn and the all-male Highlander Hyur on top of that. I could call unfair there too, considering, but I don't particularly care. It's just a game. Whether people play their gender or not doesn't matter, it's what amuses them.

No, there weren't male Mithra in XI so I don't think most people even expected them to be in XIV. I know I didn't. Weren't female Galka either. I wouldn't expect more from any MMO, and most are about the same at release. Some are much worse. Just the fact that the servers are pretty stable puts them above many games. BTW this isn't the release, this is the early release.

I love it when people get all confused as to why guys play female characters.

As a male player who tends to play female characters I'll explain it to you.

If I'm going to be staring at something's *** for the next (insert massive play count) I don't want it to be man ***. Give me a cute female to look at please.

Here are my options:

Hyur: If I wanted to be a human, I'd play IRL MMORPG, but I'm told I need to cut back on that.
Lalafell: Never liked playing short races. Just doesn't feel right to me.
Roegadyn: Never liked big bulky, beefy races either.

Usually I prefer to play non-human humanoids. Argonian/Khajit in Oblivion, for example. Also Elves, Sauaghin, Troglogytes... I like races that look human-ish but are notably not human. For example in XII/TA2, I'd like Viera and Bangaa but not Nu Mou or Seeq (or Hume).

That leaves me with:

Elezen - Played an Elvaan for 6 years.
Mi'qote - What I chose.

To me, the people who always bring it up and try to put a face on it instead of letting it be what it is (a harmless aesthetic choice) are the ones with the powerful insecurities. Or are otherwise trying too hard to troll...

Really, is there actually a need to use such a term...? I'm betting there are women who play some of the male exclusive races too (Galka in FFXI, Roegadyn in FFXIV) yet we don't go giving them terms. One woman I knew played a Galka for RP, does that mean she should be a Girlka or in FFXIV, a Womadyn? Shall we refer to Highlander Hyurs as Hi-heeler Hyurs? Also what did you expect? People play either genders, as long as they're not pretending to actually be a female IRL (RP doesn't count, RP you take the role of a character but calling yourself a female IRL is not RP.) then I don't care. And yes, I do play either gender in RPG games and I DO RP. I just make it clear to state I'm a male IRL.

By the way... There IS a male Mithra in a WoTG storyline regarding Windurst, so they do exist just not as a playable race. Additionally, it has been discovered that male Miqo'te do make Ul'dah their homes and I recall someone mentioned before that one Miqo'te NPC states she has two sons. Thing is nobody's actually seen a male Miqo'te in the city but sooner or later I bet we'll see an actual male Miqo'te in a storyline somewhere.

EDIT: On the subject about SE and male Miqo'te, I believe it was stated somewhere they are still considering it. Since we're not living under limitations like the PS3 version we may eventually see male variants of Miqo'te and female variants of the Highlander Hyur. For Roegadyn, if they follow true to their Galka counterparts they may be considered asexual and be incapable of reproduction thus not really having a gender other than appearing to be male. I haven't actually read up on Roegadyn yet to confirm if they have/haven't announced something on this subject.

Is this your first MMO? Better get used to it because 90% of the female characters in any MMO are actually men.

Not true, obviously, if you even read the little tiny bit of lore out there. I still like to stupidly believe you're being an idiot on purpose here, though.

You've missed some then, because I've read quite a few where they weren't magically changed to have ***** (and yes, one series of them had it happen magically, meaning they were purely female to start). Also, they're all doujinshi, so they aren't official anyway.

Of course sarcasm and jokes don't translate, so this post is of course for those who actually believe anything Lobivopis says.

In most FFXI doujins that feature futa mithras there is no magic involved, they are simply a hermaphrodite race.

I really wish SE would do this because the freakouts it would cause among insecure people would be @#%^ing epic.

Why should anyone care what gender you play as in a game? Its not an avatar of your real life self.(Unless your a furry dressing up as a cat in real life.) Its a toon. If you have played metroid you were a female character. blah blah blah and blaaaah

I'll just say this...

For some people it's not only a matter of aesthetics, but of identity. The great thing about role playing games (I'll say it again, role) is that you can be what you cannot be otherwise (and maybe would like to be). It's a way of compensation to real life, to immerse yourself into something that makes you happy.

Certainly, RP comes into play too, but even without it some people might just feel better playing as a female. As long as they don't bother other players, what's the big deal? If somebody feels oh so disgusted by it, just look the other way or don't talk to them. Acceptance and tolerance is something many people seem to be lacking, sadly. And there's still people wondering why the world is in such a mess. *chuckles*

Long story short, just let people play the way it makes them happy. There's not only black and white, by now people should be aware of this fact.

Despite being one of those 'messed up people' though, me's still hoping for playable male Miqo'te at some point.

LOL. I don't remember exactly but weren't Galka's A-sexual as well. I didn't follow the story line very closely but I remember it being something weird with how they were born.



edit: I remember now. They would get old and leave on a journey and climb a mountian and be reincarnated as a child, or something like that. That being said they must not have genitals if they don't reproduce sexually so they're not male or female.

The thing I find most amusing about stuff like this is people who "draw a line". For example:

Brushy wrote:

The One and Only SamusKnight wrote:

"It's okay to play a catgirl in a game, just so long as you don't act like one IRL" or "It's okay to be the opposite gender in a game, just so long as you don't act like that IRL"

For the sake of argument, I'm going to make the same point IRL that has been made about the game: Why are people so insecure that the notion of someone else doing something -you- think is abnormal offends you? If I wanna walk around IRL with fake tits and a pair of cat ears, then dammit, I should be able to!

Without trying to go too far off topic here, I'm going to apply the same logic to all of this mess, be it RP or not RP, that is applied to other things in life: If someone else wants to act a certain way or feel a certain way or dress a certain way or have *** a certain way, why do you care? Why is what other people choose to do any of anyone else's business?

If everyone wants to run around IRL being futa catgirls, then @#%^; let em. Doesn't hurt me any.

EDIT: I think I may have misread that second quote. Reading it again, I realize he was talking about people who play female characters and claim to be female IRL; I thought he was referring to transvestites

I was defending males IRL who choose to be a Manqo'te. You completly misunderstood what I wrote.

I assume you Didn't read the first line wereas I say "who cares" and give a great example by stating that its not an avartar of a RL person and then make a fail attempt to be funny and say furries might play.

For those of you who don't know what furries are I will tell you. Furries are people who dress up as animals and have ***.

On subject, I don't understand guys who play female characters saying they don't want to look at a man's *** all day while they play. I guess you think 3D models in video games are sexually attractive? And staring at a 3D behind made of polygons and textured over makes you uncomfortable? IDK.

Personally I play female characters a lot. More than men. I don't roleplay or act like a woman. I just find them more pleasing to the eye, not in a 'I don't want to stare at a dude's **** all day' kinda way. In a 'I-prefer-female-characters-for-whatever-reason' kinda way.
I make no excuses.

I assume you Didn't read the first line wereas I say "who cares" and give a great example by stating that its not an avartar of a RL person and then make a fail attempt to be funny and say furries might play.

For those of you who don't know what furries are I will tell you. Furries are people who dress up as animals and have ***.

lol so say your sorry for misquoting me Mikhalia , or not, really don't care just wanted to clarify the meaning of what I wrote.

I guess I just like my character to be a representation of what I would want to be if I really was in that world, out of the races in that world.

EDIT: I think I may have misread that second quote. Reading it again, I realize he was talking about people who play female characters and claim to be female IRL; I thought he was referring to transvestites

That's exactly what I was referring to. Long time back in another MMO I used to play a friend of mine was getting intimately involved with another player who was supposedly a female. One day he comes up to me and tells me that the girl he's been hanging out with was actually a dude IRL and he was so upset he actually quit playing the game. When I confronted the guy about it he just said he was sorry and that he was pretending to be a woman on the game to get free stuff. I've also suffered a moment before back in FFXI where a friend I thought I could truly trust turned out to be lying over the course of a year or so about his true gender to me.

Personally, I hate these kind of people. If you want to use a female character, fine. If you wanna RP as a female character, that's fine too. It's when you toy with the trust of people by masquerading as a woman for whatever reason be it free stuff or for kicks that ****** me off.

EDIT: I've also had one of my roomies pretending to be a girl (Or at least he didn't disclose his true gender.) in FFXI for a short time until I really cussed him out. After that he stopped.

Personally I play female characters a lot. More than men. I don't roleplay or act like a woman. I just find them more pleasing to the eye, not in a 'I don't want to stare at a dude's **** all day' kinda way. In a 'I-prefer-female-characters-for-whatever-reason' kinda way.
I make no excuses.


Personally I've never understood that, why make an excuse like "Oh, uh... I-I only play a female because I don't wanna stare at a guy's ****!" when it's easier to say it's a choice of preference. Really, how many of us really sit there ogling our character's posteriors? Your eyes should be on what's going on around the screen. In some games I do create a female instead of male due to appearances (In WoW I made a female Draenei because while I didn't mind the appearance of the males, the voice sounded like Arnold Schwarzenegger to me.) but I also usually have a male character either as my main or secondary.

Lol I play a miqote simply because I want to. Im sure all lalafells arent midgets or dwarves in real life. There arent any mutants running around playing roegaedyn either. The only ppl that probably get mad about guys playing miqs may have ulterior motives as to dating potential. To which I say good luck but do so at your own risk.

If im gonna spend countless hours over the next few years with the same avatar I think I would rather see the kitties instead of the many subligar shirtless Highlanders running around.

I'm still wondering why there were no male forms of them. Aparently not only is SE racist, but their sexist as well.


They actually said they had started making them but cut them out due to time constraints.


The way I read the interview was it referring to XI and Mithra... Either way I'd rather be a catman than a hume *caugh* hyur. I picked Hyur for XIV because I can't really do elfish types or huge galka types, both seem humanoid to me. Maybe I'm wierd but a lionesque type doesn't seem odd to me and I could play that. But without a male option I don't have a choice so I went Hyur. In XI I went Hume for neutral stats, here I went Hyur for comfort. I really wanted to play something not humanesque, but I couldn't. IF I could get my wife to play I think she'd go Miqo'te so where does that leave me....

I am not sure i understand the whole..you a dude! play one thing...

I have played both male and female chars in many games, most often choosing by what i find most visually pleasing.

sometimes the males look like a total BAMF, others not

when that is the case i choose female chars

It has never been a choice of i want the REAL me to be represented in the game..its a game not a second life

and never once playing a female char have i felt uncomfortable playing one, even if some-one hits on you....you jsut say your a dude

and for those that string people along and trick them into thinking they are the opposite ***(i will NOT same guys/gals..im 100% sure its been done both ways) WHY BE SURPRISED? humanity(or parts of it) thrive off of the thrill of tricking others, for no good reason..heck I know i sometimes enjoy playing pranks!....we ALL have...don't say you haven't

All i can say is..its the INTERNET, you d=should **** well know in today's society that it could be a totally dif person than you think on the other side of those pixels.....why get upset when you were tricked...?

I just don't understand!

While I won't say that I agree with or defend males who pretend to be female to get free ****, I will say that if you give someone free **** JUST because [you think] they are a female IRL, then you're a tool.
