How upset are YOU over the new RACES?
So as many of you know, and others new may have heard SE is about to introduce two new races to add to our fantasia addiction or Lack there of. Only one small little tiny hitch... gender.
So you have the choice to be a lovely, furry, SMEXY bunny GIRL.
A big Burly Hrothar MALE.
SO basically SE has followed "LORE" and kept the reclusive Viera males well, reclusive. And the Female Hrothar umm...not allowed to join in the FOR SURE Thundercats RP that most likely will have LION O macro's for Limit Breaks and Provokes become a 'thing'.
SOOoOo the question being, how importante is it for you to play a reclusive MALE, "trix are for kids" bunny, or a FEMALE "Hear me ROAR" Hrothar?
Do you think SE is not listening in on what the "players" are asking for?
Are you thinking there may be a slight case of "Self-Entiled" crybaby pandemic occuring?
How important is having something you never had and never missed before?
And how important is it to follow Lore?

Congratulations! You got me to post with a "hot topic". I really don't know the backstory behind this so much. What I do know is that most of the Viera appeal comes from FFXII with the poster girl Fran being this amazing warrior while still wearing less clothes than most strippers. The flimsy excuse given was that mobility was important in their forest home and they didn't have to worry about insects, or bark chafing. Ultimately not surprised at all.
I am more concerned "lorewise" with what the rumour mill is saying is the premise of Shadowblood. If it's another world or alternate world, it's usually a sign that the 'story' is already over. Such plot devices can be used effectively, but so often they lead to too many continuity issues and the only way out is the dreaded "and it was all a dream."
Actually they had some very good reasons for their decision.
Viera was a Big want for the playerbase. But so was a beastial type.
Creating new races is not easy and requires each to somehow Fit every single item in some way or another. All of that needs to be considered on top of creating the new races themselves.
Viera males was considered, but at the same time they have not seen them before so would the fans be happy either way?
The ronso was added because this is their last time for
New races, due to the extensive work each requires from hair, ears, to feet and emotes and all that goes around it.
That is not to suggest we will never see the opposite sexes, but just not in the near future nono
So to sum that up, the devs are listening. But they can only do so much. I’m not even sure how many permissions they may have had to get to allow said races in game due to them being in other ff games, even if square owns them.
On a side note-
We should honestly be happy we get anything. You don’t see games like wow listening to the fans, nor trying to appease their customers nono.
What I mean is, we are spoiled so try to appreciate it yus yus. This IS your game but you’re not the only player
True Esper ^^
AS I have said, I don't care one bit what they did, I'm happy with just my dear Blonde.
I REALLY hope they stick to their established lore and DON'T go with that alternate world crap to add males and females to the new races.
You wanted bunnies, you got bunnies, you wanted more animal races, you got another cat like race. Now shut up and STOP bitching, they gave you what they could and now you want a thousand things more. Either accept it or move on.
I agree with annabel on this one. The player base for what it wanted. Asking for anything more than that after the news release stresses the dev team.
Not one bit. ^^
Honestly I actually kinda like both, given my past experience, would definitely fantasia into any of them. Hmm, if they add anything more it would be a bonus. I don't really care whether they add male/female to a particular race at this point of time.
Agree with Esper and Annabel, the devs are trying to do what they can to keep the game fresh. I have played ffxi and ffxiv for 14 years and I really like what they do to keep us wanting to play.... just waiting for the full dive head gear!
This is a non-issue. The real issues should be players in full and light parties choosing to completely stop doing their jobs, especially healers, during any run at any iLvl. You deliberately leave someone incapacitated and you don't revive them? You deserve to be blacklisted or even reported. Indamissible. Male Viera is also the name of Maki Harukawa's companion in game until the races are completed by request, so this is already a non-issue anyway.
SE gave us a thing. People really wanted bunny girls, so SE gave it to them. No one really shouted about wanting bunny boys, until we found out that there weren't any. The folks that bitched for bunny girls probably wouldn't play them any way. Now they bitch about the bunny boys, and it's the same thing. People having tantrums and making a fuss because they want attention and they want things their way.
It makes me wonder if the folks bitching the loudest even bother to play the game.

idc really... I just play the game and have fun. Every ounce of content they give us is a blessing. There are a million things I want in this game. Doubtful I'll ever get them. I'll enjoy what they give me though!
For the record I have 4 characters prepped for ShB
- Female Viera Melee
- Female Miqote Healer
- Female Viera ranged
- Male Lionboi tank
Until I fantasia lol...
On one hand, I was upset b/c no male bunnies, but once I calmed down I started putting a lot of the pieces together and understanding that the dev team was so strapped for time on this.
Given, I would've appreciated their honesty up front, b/c they said they knew since Ivalice that they wouldn't implement Male Viera. Don't make me wait thru 3 FanFests for something that could be been talked about a while ago.
All in all, I'm hopeful!
Not feeling excited or upset or anything.
But frankly, I was shocked to see so many responses regarding this gender locked races, be it positively or negatively.
Everyone entitled to their own opinion, but the decision is SE to make.
/gives 2 cents
I'm slightly disappointed about the stereotypical aspect of the sexy Viera/swole Hrothgar thing. Like, I was really proud of FFXIV for having male catboys and female roes because it's different from what we see everywhere all the time. More freedom to create!
But also, I really do think Hrothgar and Viera look cool as shit. I'm gonna be happy to see em in-game.
Lastly I think it's normal that people are having opinions about this. Although some folks are being wayy too intense.
Lore be damned, variety is everything. I think we are past that era of races, jobs and genders locked or tied to something. Why do SE want to keep something so old school is beyond me.
I will sleep well ;)
Since I have no intention to change race, so new race has nothing to do with me.
I will be very impressed if they can make something to tempt me.
