could some admin here make a poll of some sort to get a overview on what races people will be playing?
idd like to know what race will be the heaviest populated:P
i know theres the sect thing, but i need numbers^^

Just take into concideration you have 4 city slots to use and you are not limited to one race once you picked it. So you can have an elf, orc and human city and one spare to experiment or to play because that faction is awsome. But a poll would help you choose your first faction.

I would like to know this as well-What will the general population play as their first race?

probably humans just to get it out of the way, then orcs... That is my choice i would also like a poll:p

I don't know why vBulletin makes it so hidden, but anyone can post a poll. You should see a "Thread Tools" link at the top of this thread. Click it and go to "Add a Poll."

I'd be happy to make a poll if you want, just thought I'd let you know that you can make a poll any time you want.

There has been a poll on this int he past I believe, majority it looks like we're elf, then human, and very few orcs. The elven and human may have swapped, it could be interesting to see new stats on this. Perhaps i'll make one :o

I think humans is more likely to be mine, although I plan on being Orcs a lot

Me, I am going to be humans first. I will eventually play as the elves. I might even play as the orcs later on just to say I did.

As much as I'd like to go for humans or elves, the orcs kick ass. They may be primitive but they can have massive strongholds and more units than you can keep track of.

I plan on starting off as orcs in MMORTS, however i have a feeling i will feel most at home with the humans, their playstyle seems more generic and the same as most games, they will be the easiest race to learn, whereas the elves could be difficult, but so could the orcs as they require an offensive player, i am not an offensive player...

Interesting results although early, a lot of elves seem to have been swayed to humans by Fantasy Fridays. I don't expect many more votes for orcs, we're just quick to attack even if it's a vote button :) Even the orc in nikson104 hit that button before his human side could stop him.

No, but I've taken one from Orcs and given one to the Humans. So 3 people have voted Orcs, despite there being but 2 votes :p

I am first one and only atm to pick elves =(, gogo vote elves! elvish powa! Where is all nature loving and caring?? Hmm hmm there will have to be some punishments for that... i see .... -,,-
Beside only thing that would change my mind is different look of human soldiers =), and maybe cool paladin units so i can mass them and do some RP =P.

I have chosen elves, because, they're awesome, and I just love them. While I might on occasion dabble in either orcs or humans, I can quite easily imagine myself playing elves for the vast majority of my playtime.

I voted for elves, though I will be playing humans a lot too, Aametherar has a good point about the influence of the Fanfrys. If not for today's, I might have picked men. For me: Elves>Men>>Orcs.

Indeed it did! :) I will definitely be playing orcs, i just dont know if it will be my main faction... then again you never know until you play it :)

Thanks mate :) Owe you one :)

P.S.... The results so far are looking VERY interesting, I mean... Very few elvish players? Wow... Most games with elves in are dominated by them, there are even more choices for orcs here and orcs are usually the least chosen! :)

I think its kinda hard, as i will play humans first but also open up elf and orc city as soon as i have to start waiting for buildings and that just so its a bit more continious :)

Negthareas
04-10-2010, 07:38 PM
For me, elves will be my "apple of my eye" player, though much of my time will be spent on humans. As for orcs, I will dabble in them and see if their crudish, ugly, cunning but stupid, rancid abilities attract my attention further.
Sometimes I do enjoy being wicked.

Henry Martin

The poll's quite unusual, people generally tend to pick the..alien, otherworldly things in games, such as elves or orcs here, not humans...I guess the developers really made them appealing:P

I do like playing both so in the beta i will see which i prefer and suits my style of play the best. :)

'Humans and Orcs' there is only one thing wrong with that and its the orc bit, last time i checked orcs were still slacking with the elves, pwahh minor races think they can last with the elites, Pwahhh i say PWAHHHH!

I've got a question, if nobody minds me asking..I've read somewhere that the elves are supposed to have the strongest walls, so my question is..why do they look like they're made out of paper compared to the human ones? Sure you can argue that they're built "better", but still..they're rather thin. Is there any magic involved in strengthening them?

DarkMaster
04-12-2010, 05:11 AM
I've read somewhere that the elves are supposed to have the strongest walls
Where was this info? I thought it was humans:(

Anyway, the closest I'll ever get to nonhuman races is a little trade with the elves, but that could change if dwarves get added.:D

True humans do tend to get someof the less mentaly addaptive people, but they also tend to get generaly some of the best around. But ima just quote what someone said to me once.

'In a fantasy world why be human? your human now'

The humans in real life only plunder and kill mercilessly down in the middle east, in the fantasy world you can find other people then taliban shooting people... or killing people overall:p The reason to play humans in a fantasy game is, WHO THE F*** would not like to see their race superior. Just like if aliens invaded earth, do you want the aliens to win? So they can kill your family and leave undamaged. I think not, so people should play humans so they avoid stuff like that. Think about if your family is modded in this game, then would you play orcs and kill the villages they were in? Just asking:rolleyes:

surly if you was aliens or another species then so would your family? its a fantasy world so your nothing and everything :) yeh ofc i would love us to win if aliens came and attacked but im human not alien. Fantasy has nothing to do (maybe a little) with real life \o/

It´s probly just me, but the human lands kind of remind me of LOTR Universe.

You got Southmont, which kind of has the same principal as Mina Tirith with both being build at mountains.

you got The Rolling Plains, what is kind of like Rohan, along with hills and stuff.

and of course The Wold, which reminds me of where the Dúnedain settled in their long years of banishment.
it´s just me maybe, or this is a really big coincidence.

welshie
04-15-2010, 03:59 AM
Well tbh ur not going to get amazing archers up in the mountians, flat land is better to practice the bow. But in the mountians generaly there rich in ores and stone so strongholds there are blates guna be the best and the rolling plains suit the caverly styled armies look at where the mongols came from. Basicly this isnt just LOTR its common sence to have them like this.

What if the orc player decided to be pink and and a frilly umbrella for his hero and his archers shot flowers? I think that would be girly.

But real orcs in-game I agree wouldn't really be manly, just plain savage. As for elves being girly, I don't see how being wicked with all weapons, deadly in battle, and periodically purging the weak can be seen as "girly."

you sound like me, however i got something i prefer before war. Economical expansion if i can do that then i can easily take over half the world in the time others use to build their first troops. Just check starcraft 2:D However i do play sniper whenever i can if its not seriously nerfed to "balance the game"

Yami-Yagari
05-17-2010, 08:58 AM
Yeah, nothing beats sniping people. :p
Die hard sniper in MW2, but something is just weird.
In most killcams, other snipers for some reason get an aim correction, even though they miss, while for some reason that doesn't apply for me. (though i hardly need it, i never miss :p)

Pfft in games like starcraft 2 all i do is expand and when the enemy comes with their superiorly overpowered air craft all i got is my puny defences. And about 4-10 bases along with tons of marines that all dies when noticed:( The aircraft there is overpowered but if not for that then i would've easily won every match:D

There is no use to put with Orcs. They will crush each-other in their own tribal wars before we Humans will reach them and even if there will remain some orc parties... there are the elves who rather kill Orcs than humans. :p

nope not true. With a strong ruler for orcs we all will fall in place to his might-ness. The elves wouldnt come after us unless we did anythin the elves are calm wood folks while you humans would come just for the riches of us orcs in Brakental

Orcs : well in most Games are all about Open Savage Destruction . I don't mind picking an agressive race but i do mind the orcs since they have such a weak economy ( again in most games )

Elves : Very good race for hit and run , but once caught offguard or in an open area will probably be at a major disadvantage , Economy somewhat Stable .

Humans : Pretty advanced , especially on the economic level , and are very "bunker up and have a good economy" friendly .

So either the elves or the humans , Economy always come first .

yes thats tru and all but in games its always fun to have a challeng....thats why i choose orcs and just because i like them. If i was in an enironment wit no hunting for foods i would make wargs and get meat off that even though they may not offer as much food but they also dont reguire food to make. To me the orcs have an interesting economy not a bad one.

Well, looks like the world will be filled with Orcs. Such a savage place.

I think I will be going with the Elves. They are a much more refined culture and fighter.

Either Elves or Humans for me. Leaning Humans right now because the tactics, formations, etc. are more my style although I have always had a thing for elves since I picked up my first Tolkien novel. Forgive my noobishness, but didn't I read somewhere that you could hire mercs? It would be pretty cool to have a Human empire and pick and choose some Elven units as mercs. I'd be more apt to play Elves if their army structure was more traditional (i.e. like Tolkien) and didn't rely on very many monster-type units. The Kraken, while cool, kinda tipped the scale for me. I'd rather fight naval battles with ships than with sea creatures and I don't think anyone wants to intentionally gimp themselves to RP or play a certain way.

So, here's the earth, and there is the moon, if we follow a 360 degree rotation around the Axis of the Earth, we will find a hidden coven where the dark side of the moon pierces the veil of the Aurora Borealis, but only when the moon is full, deep within this coven, we find a secret and hidden race of elves, and lo and behold, Tolkien was right, they were here all along. This is why we play elves as the superior race. Heil to the forces of the night.

08-25-2010, 03:06 AM
I usually like humans for their balanced attributes and tactical approach to things. Although i can't deny that the orcs look like they'd be a blast, I think that in the end, I will be human.

Alezzy

I bet most can agree with that, i bet very few of us would marry virtual orcs:D

Ahhh I don't know I love the Orcs to death but since they released some information on the human units. The puney little humans are starting to grow on me :D

Henry Martin
08-29-2010, 07:20 PM
meh...not a fan of the orcs. I was going to play the humans first, but since I have been in the beta I've grown attached to the elves.

It's hard to choose between Humans and Elves. But i must admit that i can't resist to the human armor style :D

I've never seen/played a game where all 3 races were so much fun to play. They are intriguingly balanced. I look forward to hearing the races fighting it out across the wide lands.

09-02-2010, 04:55 AM
i must tsay that im surprised that humans take up almost 50% of the votes:P
in my mind elves or orcs have always been favoured over humans^^

Kyzarin
11-03-2010, 07:26 PM
lol looks like majority humans. I've always been a fan of elves, and I'm not going to change with this game, although I will try out the other races.

I think a lot of the people who are into fantasy tend to go with non-human races, but there are probably also a lot of non-fantasy types who will naturally tend to pick humans. (This is by no means an expert opinion, just my take on the matter)

SilverLeaf
11-06-2010, 03:24 AM
elves ftw :D
However I too wish to start a semi-hardcore pvp guild therefore it may be a good idea to go human...

Espadachim
11-06-2010, 05:33 PM
I wish to scream all the info to you guys, but doing so would violate the NDA, so I'm only going to tell that all 3 are helluva cool.

SilverLeaf
11-07-2010, 12:52 AM
well I'm pretty sure proclaiming to all you're in the beta is also against the NDA :D

So... what I suppose you can tell us is if it looks good enough to be released? I mean, if half the stuff is broken, obviously it won't be a 2010 release.

If you have been in forums a while, or trawl through old posts its easy to guess who is in beta. Do your homework and you may see :)

And no he cannot tell you anything, against NDA. Oh how I love to see everyone else in the same situation of frustration as me when they dont know how its faring :D

Espadachim
11-07-2010, 05:01 PM
Let's say that the testers know X things about a Y amount of the game. I guess that's an accurate description. :D

SilverLeaf
11-07-2010, 08:56 PM
Yeah in general I don't see the point about NDAs as if it is THAT bad, news will leak anyway. However there is almost no transparency in most if not all games these days.

Its mostly so big secrets cant be given away or other developers can capitalise on the ideas in a game before said game is even published. It is quite important, and yes, there will be some leakage, but it is best kept to a minimum

Jack
11-27-2010, 12:51 PM
only with that race you choose
you can have multiple citys of one race
but you aslo have 3 slots i think where you can choose your race and stuff
but you cant have with one save difrent races
as far as i know:p

Vigilus
11-28-2010, 12:35 AM
This game is what World of Warcraft SHOULD have been like. I rolled an alliance character, so i would choose ORCS! For the horde! :)

Jeremiah87

Humans definatly from habit :)

Toth
11-28-2010, 05:44 AM
Either Orks, i'm an agressive player or Elves, because I'm not a big fan of Ork looks and the elves magic looks interesting.

jleem21
11-28-2010, 12:53 PM
I'd play as the Orcs..Then whenever I'm tired of them, Humans...Elves? ...Ehhh

raizun
11-29-2010, 09:08 AM
I will most likely go Human, just because I always do in a setting like this, then I go from there, choosing to take a different race to build up in.

atom11
11-29-2010, 02:55 PM
I will start as orc, becoes I like more atacking than defending so maybe they are for me best

Probably going to get an elf, just cause I'm always one.

LordShaden

Definetly Elven, I'm totally for the Lore for them so far. However Orcs are pretty slick aswell, I'm surprised they have the lowest votecount!

As far as I know French (which isn't very much but enough) élèves means pupils and not girls. But I can be wrong.

Humans all the way. Or undead if they make that race.

Lord_Itzalak
12-04-2010, 11:19 PM
I would play elves first. Drakes could eventually interest me I think.

Here is my question though...if we can have up to four cities...what happens when expansions come out if we already have four cities? It's probably very hypothetical at this point, but if we can still only have four cities, I'm hoping I'd be able to delete one to use one of those new races, or maybe we'll get a bonus city slot. Who knows.

ZuluDawn
12-04-2010, 11:43 PM
Definitely Human!

Gwydion
12-04-2010, 11:55 PM
4 city slots..... so humans first to get the training wheels off then ORCS WAAAAAGH (ehem sorry) then elfs.

ryuujin

i'll start with human first then try other races after im familiar with the game :D

Humans as usual ^^

Benighted
12-05-2010, 05:40 AM
i might go for the Orcs with the 1st city. But would take into consideration the features of the three races when entering the game to have the final decision

Polan
12-05-2010, 06:20 AM
Human I think. Or elves. Never really liked orcs.

haski12
12-05-2010, 07:07 AM
I think I´ll play the elves beacause of their marine units.The kraken look nice^^

Nimlot
12-05-2010, 08:57 AM
Probably elves, couse I'am a vegan

LOL! good reason


I really like the orc concept in this game so i will probobly play them the most. But i will know more for sure when the game comes out i guess what suits my playstyle :)

I like ambushes and stuff like that too, which could mean elfs are my type of play, i guess i will try out all races abit to see what i am at heart :)

sania2
12-05-2010, 08:58 AM
also elves, cuz their formation mechanix are uncommon.

silidur
12-05-2010, 02:41 PM
I know how to make a human army as numerous as the orcs. Let the orc/human breeding begin! This will make a lot of ugly evil humans with numbers Human tech with orc numbers (the skills are close to non existant but anyways they make up for it with brave stupidity also they gots evil human weapons and armor inherited from their parents.).

I'll play orcs just because Humans are so ... normal, if You know what i mean, and elves are so sugar sweet and sexy whatever in every fantasy book/game that i really just wwant to slay them all, cause i really had enough of all the "elf stuff" XD

Emrus
12-06-2010, 04:33 AM
imma go with Humans, umm nice troops combo we have there.:D


still hard to decide you know;)

lol im going elf too but dont understand how they are better at def? Is it cos they rely heavily on ranged?

From what I've read, they're the best at defense because they have the best archers and the strongest walls.

Alezzy
12-08-2010, 07:32 PM
Humans ..because i dont like unnatural stuff

Vimous
12-11-2010, 01:15 PM
Without a doubt i will be playing the elves. i have been a fan of elves for as long as I can remember. I have even wished at times that if i could be rebirthed. It would be an elf. Regardless of that... I was a bit surprised when I heard elves were gonna have a strong defense. I figured they would be a race that had a strong offense based on quick movement. But w/e, I can change my battle styles for the race I love.

Naivedo
12-16-2010, 08:32 PM
Out of the three, I would have to say Elves would be my favorite. If I can't choose from a more dark race, I always go for the Elves. Not that their is anything wrong with Humans or Orcs. I am more of a green mana person when it comes to magic. ;)

Vasito
12-17-2010, 01:36 PM
Humans will be my main and then Ill build a Mighty Elven Empire!

strongest walls, archers, and magic? Without a doubt im going elf

im sooo going for the elves, its something about the majestic immortal creatures that attracts me to them in every game!

01-20-2011, 12:09 AM
I usually like humans for their balanced attributes and tactical approach to things. Although i can't deny that the orcs look like they'd be a blast, I think that in the end, I will be human.

I agree, when starting out i think picking out a race that kinda has a balance in all things would be a better learning experience. Once you have a feel of the game and your play tactic then i think you can begin to choose a race that suits your play style.

Hans
01-20-2011, 12:15 AM
Starting with Men - Later i think i going for Orks first, than Elves !

reddot
01-20-2011, 02:30 AM
i usually would choose a dwarf race if possible, but out of the three of those options i think i would go for the Elf´s as i do like ranged/stealthy species also... but dwarfs i like most becouse of theyr beards, drinking and warrior type of people...

valodimer
01-20-2011, 02:46 AM
definitely ORc, jump in chop chop chop ^^

Daraim
01-20-2011, 02:47 AM
hink I'm going to play as Human and maybe later I will play as Elves...

GeneralGonzo
01-20-2011, 04:03 AM
Normally I always play humans in many fantasy games but since this game is "special" with its open world environment, I think I will stick to Orcs!

As I´m an agressive player in RTS games, I want to conquer and make warfare fast and hope that Orcs will contribute to my will to expand greatly :D

Elves are to fragile for me but for sure also an interesting choice for more defensive playing style.

Toven
01-20-2011, 04:06 AM
I'll be going humans. Why? I just like their buildings more.

krichard
01-20-2011, 04:18 AM
Human as well.

ceronor298
01-20-2011, 06:54 AM
Elves because most likely humans and orcs won't take notice of the elves hiding in their forest, so once they attack eachother Elves will destroy them both.

RaZiel
01-20-2011, 07:11 AM
Elves for sure!!!

pkdavid

I take all time Humans, because i like break orcs :)

Humans, definitely have been an all time favourite for me.

Dreadnought
01-20-2011, 10:10 AM
Well, boring though it may be I will go with humans first, mainly because I love to battle with the Orcs.
However if there is a general imbalance on a server will this affect gameplay in anyway? I assume we will be warring with our own race anyway>

GoGoCactusMan!
01-20-2011, 10:15 AM
I always tend to be Humans. Their play style always seems to hit the right balance for me. Plus, if I ever get a guild going, for the thing I want to start I have to be Human.

Devilmoon
01-20-2011, 11:17 AM
Orcs. For the horde!

Refleax
01-20-2011, 11:18 AM
It's either Humans or Orcs, depending on what I like when I actually get to try out the game.

Webi
01-20-2011, 11:22 AM
I think of Orcs or Elves. I hardly await for Beta.

edueduedu93
01-20-2011, 11:25 AM
orcs of course

olane123
01-20-2011, 11:43 AM
if its between these three i would go with the elves simply because they've had a hard time loosing their imortality and are the underdogs i would also choose them because in a seige i would want the best archers possible ripping lose a volly of arrows into the hordes of orcs or humans

Dameeda
01-20-2011, 11:47 AM
Orcs!! Always have been my favourite in all strategy game for their roughness! :D

I just like playing elves usually anyway, but with them having strongest defenses and range I would think they are going to be tough to beat.

Alex Walz
01-20-2011, 01:26 PM
Nice to see it's evening up. The Orcs and Elves are great factions that we'll look into closer with the next two Fantasy Fridays.

Ichigo
01-20-2011, 01:27 PM
Right now I am leaning towards human, which I don't normally do, but given what I know of the races, I think I like the variety offered by humans as it stands now. Have no idea on what homeland. I guess eventually I would like to try them all out.

Cathorian
01-20-2011, 02:26 PM
im surprised more people aren't going orc... the loot and carnage sounds like fun :D

Piaskowy
01-20-2011, 02:28 PM
I'm 101% im up for Humans, bad feeling for Orcs, Elves...to dark for me....

Chaoticuss
01-20-2011, 02:30 PM
Well I'm very interested in trying the human race, but according to the numbers are a large majority of the other people, I hope it doesn't turn into a giant all out war.

Cathorian
01-20-2011, 02:36 PM
if elves are the best at defense, how come its the humans that get double layered heavy walls?

Wyzak
01-21-2011, 12:45 AM
I've always been a fan of elves.... I hope that there will be some customization options available. Would be a bit bland if all elves were exactly the same... I haven't read through all the documents, but has anybody maybe stumbled onto something which would suggest that you almost have a tech-tree for your race (to customize)?

Lazoraz
01-21-2011, 01:22 AM
Only three races? Before you say anything I'm not complaining or anything :P But I like a lot of options :P But what if they added in more? Do they plan on adding in more? From these three I would pick Orc.

Well for now i still don't know. I think i'll test all of them before taking the final choice. It's better to test the gameplay/balance/etc... Before really knowing what to choose :D

I will probably play humans first. I usually play them first in games because I am one... unless the dwarf race is availalbe; I just like playing as a tough axe weilding dwarf.

I'm actually kind of surprised to find that Elves are second to Orcs thus far--most of the threads I've read have more people talking about how they plan to be a human and destroy those nasty orcs or plan to be orcs and devour the carcasses of their human enemies.

Maybe Elves are the silent types...?

I've played defensively in RTS games historically, which is probably half of the reason I've always been terrible; most games will actually reward the proactive gaming style far more than the reserved, turtling style. I'm happy to see that DoF looks like it may very well be capable of balancing the defensive playstyle and helping those players be successful with that method.

That said, I'll be playing elves until we can get a little bit of dwarf representation in a future expac!

I always like to chose the side with a smaller pop so I would go with the Orcs, most likely. Plus, cmon, they are orcs. I make it a habit to never chose the most human race in a game (recently with Dawn of War 2 and SC2, for example, went with the Nyds and Zerg).

I honesty do not have a clue which race I will be playing since I haven't looked into much depth about each race. Most likely though I will be inclined to be playing as a human since that is what I am used too and it will be probably the most balanced race in my opinion.
