POLL: What’s your race in GW2?Posted 9:53 am on Tuesday, October 16th, 2012 by Michael Revis
Guild Wars 2 is an awesome game, but it’s not without its share of oddities. One of which is the balance between race populations, which Arenanet writer Peter Fries commented on in a twitter post, saying that “People avoiding charr & asura are missing the strongest story stuff in our game, IMO.”
Fries is of course referring to the data presented in a previous community update on the official website, where they showed an infographic regarding race distribution. The chart puts humans at a staggeringly high percentage of the player population. Norns are a very distant second, with the other races enjoying each other’s company so to speak. As for why humans are winning this popularity contest, it could be a number of reasons, from their racial abilities, to people simply wanting to better create an image of themselves in-game, to horny, young teenage boys wanting an attractive female butt to stare at while wandering about in Tyria.
With that being sad, we’d like to present a couple questions to our dear readers out in the intahwebs: What is your chosen race in GW2? What drew you to make that decision? And do you have a second race that you wouldn’t mind trying out for any reason? Let us know in the comments section.
