Not to mention, a lot of female players don't want a character that is 100% pure T&A (Tits and Arse), i know there are always those few females out there, all into themselves and want to make their character super sexy (While in reality, they look like a water buffalo's arse) and they use this to try to scam guys.

sorry, you made a typo, was correcting it.

harsh reality is, the majority of gamers will use fake pictures, to try to scam free items, lie about who they are, what they look like, and the sort, which ruins the culture of gamers, these people are called CASUALS.

Deal with it people, seriously deal with it. Don't get angry with people who point out the obvious.

In my experience it's not just casuals. It's not the type of gamer who does that, it's the type of person the gamer is. :p

But it's a two way street. I find it funny how people will assume by how one "sounds" with their typing, and how their avatar looks, by which to judge the other players.

But then, I always wondered why people care. :p I know I never have.

But I think I just find it more funny now, because of my mom. Everytime I've gotten her into any mmo (however short lived it is) she has a habit of making her characters look like strippers, she also has a love for action movies and comic book movies (and twilight >_>) to the point you'd likely have thought she was a guy. :p

My basic point. No one would get scammed if they would just stop caring about who's behind the avatar and play the game. :p

Right now, everyone and their grandmother is judging things based off of the Korean game play, which if ANYONE had any intelligence they wouldn't do, simply because the NA and EU versions are going to be nerfed, or at least modified, i know EU will be heavily nerfed, because almost every version of any game in EU is 100000x easier then the korean counterpart, the NA version will also be easier, but not as easy as the EU version.

You are so increadibly wrong with that statement. Im not gonna go into a EU vs. NA discussion as that would be increadibly pointless and simply isnt something one should go into, not even a fat and arrogant robot....

I don't know about the whole scamming because you act like a girl/are a girl thing. At least for me, i don't give a damn wether im playing with a Girl or a Guy. I treat them the same, as a fellow gamer. In the end it only comes down to how good they play in my party and for that it doesn't make a difference.

I guess others might act different but meh, thats them and this is me.

Usually I end up playing females characters but not because im trying to act like a girl (Wich i certently can't ^^) but simply because I prefer the animations and looks of them and hey, im a guy, I like to look at a pretty Char ;)

On the actual topic:

For the most classes, I guess after reading this thead I think BM might be the most played class as well. They are just pretty cool with awesome skills and stuff, at least in PvE they are really fun to play (Even with my huge Korean delay im having a lot of fun with them).

I honestly think Assassin will be the most played at first, then it'll change up to a toss between Blade Master and Force Master.

Imo Assassin is too technical for a lot of people. It's definitely an attractive class, but I see a lot of people switching to KFM or Blade Master for better survivability and damage.

I wouldn't knock the attractiveness of the Assassin theme from the western audience.

However, I suspect Lyn Blade Master, Summoner, and Force Master will be popular, as I imagine Lyn's will dominate the races.

After that, I'd say the most popular class will likely be the class considered "THE BEST" and while on the forums, you hear a lot of "they're pretty equal" it won't stop people from flocking towards the one class that is considered the best, even if it's by the smallest of percentages.

Why is there no Gunner option in the poll?

Because it's not an available class :p

admittedly you see it in the forums all the time, KFM, Sin, BM and maybe Destro, but those first three, will be nearly AUTO considered the best, and most likely will be the top played classes~

I've played pretty much every class in the game and they're all great, I find that you CONNECT with a character better than another and that's what makes it BETTER in your eyes so I'll fall into that default and say they're all pretty equal~

But I think those usual three will find themselves on the top played list~

It's going to be how it always is: assassin/ninja classes are always popular over here in NA. Something about the mythical (awesome) ninja still gets to us. I also think Kung Fu master will overshadow Blade Master because they use their fists and a lot of people are looking forward to that, it's just awesome to fight people who have weapons with your hands and win. So we will be seeing a lot of KFM and Assassins followed by Blade Master and Lyn Blade Master because a lot of people may not understand the difference between the BM classes if they don't pay much attention. I can see a lot of "Oh hey cool Lyn can be Blade Masters just like Jin and Kun! Wait why do I have different skills than my friends?" going on. What they get for not naming it the Lyn Magic Blade or something.

But it says Lyn Blade Master on the class forums :pudency: . I'll take your word for it, swordmaster, that should get rid of the confusion at least lol.

I can see why Summoner will best the least popular class.

Some people, like myself, may have played mage classes in past MMO's and are just burn't out on them.

Another reason is it's the least dynamic class of them all, and the game is centered around asian-themed combat, flashy/fun fights, ect. A lot of summoner combat involves stand-still casting and controlling your pet.

But then again it is the recommended class, so it might be the perfect balance of dynamic combat and controlled combat for some people!

(P.S. I still think Blademasters will be the most popular.)

Yea, when I asked for a specific Classforum for them I didn't know they were called Swordmasters and asked for a Lyn Blademaster Subforum :surrender:

But on the offical page korean page (can't access from work, will give link later) the Class Specific Page for Swordmasters is called .../swordmaster/... for example, where other classes would have assassin, Destroyer etc. So they are called Swordmaster in Korea and I guess that might also be their Western name.

Blade Master for sure ... but I'm surprised at the low poll results for the Force Master. :surrender:

I think people generally prefer the kung-fu/stabby side of a martial arts MMO ^_^

I think the FM is really cool, I love their weapons, chi bangles? I think they're a really interesting take on what a magical weapons can be, instead of the standard staff. It just annoys me that they stuck to fire, ice and chi, and that their combos don't go very high :gloomy:
