I've narrowed it down to DW, Miqote, and Lalla : )

Oo; Are you a chick or dood? If you are a dood, for the love of all "things" good, please don't chose Miquote ;.; Everytime I see a "manquote" God kills a kitten... :P

Haha I am a guy. I'm neither here nor there about the men playing miqote issue, but I DO think they are the coolest race and I don't have a problem playing a female race at all, they look great, but I would prefer to be male. My thinking is this: I'll be a Miqote and when they release the male version I'll switch over to that. My problem is they said name changes may not be available, so I'll be stuck with a female miqote and a make name for awhile, and if they never do release a male version I'm screwed.

Anyways, I'm going to try and play a male but really only like the Elezen and lalla, but I don't like them THAT much.

Anyways, lets see some pics!

What's uncool about it? Or to put it another way... why in the **** should they reserve a name for your character if you don't subscribe to the game? Baffling...

Actually dummy (not dumbie you dummy), no you didn't, you said you may, which last time I checked implies possibility, not certainty. Why should they hold the @#%^ing name for you if you aren't paying. If I don't want to pay my rent until next January should my landlord hold my apartment for me? I'll learn to read if you promise to learn the English language...
Unreal...

ChaCha, yeah MAY reopn my account so I can retain my name. So I can hold my name. I like many spent time and money on my character. I didn't kill my character completely so I could have the option to play at 2.0, when the game should have been revamped and hopefully draw players back in. I also spent, like many, a lot of money getting a new rig. So forgive me, I possibly want the option to pay and yet not play so I can keep my name. If I don't want to play that is my choice. If I don't pay then yeah, they shoudln't hold my name.

Never in my statement did I ever imply they should hold it. Again, learn to read and get your white knight @$$ back on the forums and stop trolling on the a simple statement that insinuates that I may want to give SE my money so I can retain my character and her name. I mean really...wtf would you jump all over my case for me giving thought to the idea of throwing my own money at SE cause I want to hold my character? WTF would it matter to you?

Now back on topic, I would like to see some Ele pictures, they are the most attractive of the male races in this game, so that would be interesting to see what people have come up with.

Lillitha, the thing is that I can read... and what you actually said that I "jumped on" was the statement that it "wasn't cool" that you might lose your name. First of all it's totally preventable. Second of all There's not one ******* thing that is uncool about it.

Fact 1: You aren't currently paying for that name.
Fact 2: There is absolutely no logic behind them preventing someone else from having that name if said person is plunking down a subscription fee.
Fact 3: You said you MAY reopen your account when 2.0 drops... which is almost a year away... which, forgive me for having reading comprehension here, implies that you do not plan to start paying until next year if you decide to play at all.

So please tell me where I am getting confused here. Every single thing I just typed is either directly stated or clearly implied in your posts... ****, in the other thread you started about this topic you used the phrase "If I reactivate my account"

So now you are ******** at me for calling you out and saying I can't read when all I am doing is taking DIRECT ******* QUOTES FROM YOUR POSTS and asking you why you are saying something like that (which is clearly either ignorant or just plain retarded). If you don't currently pay for a subscription, your character name SHOULD NOT be safe. There's no earthly reason for it. SE shouldn't use telepathy to realize that you MIGHT come back for 2.0 so they'd better save your name...

The person who subscribes tomorrow probably also bought a new rig, and the game, and, most importantly, will be paying a subscription fee. Why shouldn't they have access to a name that belonged to a person who quit the game, may or may not even come back, and currently invests 0 dollars into the game.

SE holds that name for you right now as a courtesy. There's no law saying that they must. You aren't doing anything that supports them in any way. ****, you are all over these forums encouraging new people NOT to play the game... and yet it's uncool that you might not be able to have your name a year from now if it so pleases you.

Wake the **** up princess..

Play what you want don't listen to others. If you are going to take advice remove all the posts that try to correlate male/female rl to male/female in a game. A game is about fun not appeasing a social norm. At the end of the day it's your choice not others.

Also, try looking on the lodestone forums for pictures. I know you only get a face profile, however, you can at least see the differing styles of each persons choice of the race they have chosen. So then you can get an idea for the direction of an avatar you wish to take. And also, I'm not sure of your FF MMO exp, but don't worry about stats and such. You should be able to augment stats with gear and materia. Just pick what speaks to you aesthetically and run with it. It took me a few tries before I chose mine... And I remeber many mentioning it took them hours of fiddling with character creation before they finally were happy with their avatar.

For me it's a matter of liking to play AS my character in MMO's, not play A character. So playing a female race makes it harder for me to be attached or whatever. And having everybody call me "her" or "she" or by a female name is not very immersive :p

But at the same time, if I'm not really happy with the male races and the miqote looks best for me I might just do it. I played a Mithra for awhile in XI and while it was annoying sometimes I had fun.

Because you can role-play an elf, a tiny child-like person, a hulking grey-skinned warrior, a clothier, a cook, a magician, a brawler, and everything in between... but never, never a different gender.

Kane, nah he can do what he wants. :). I just wanted to banter. However, I will say it does make things a bit confusing, but as long as everyone is having fun, who really cares? I totally support the g/l/be/trnsgndr/ males playing female avatar community :).
