    Favorite playable race comments

    http://wow.joystiq.com/2013/07/04/co...ace/#continued

    poll results in order of most to least favourite:
    1. Tauren
    2. Forsaken
    3. Gnomes
    4. Draenei
    5. Dwarves
    6. Night Elves
    7. Blood Elves
    8. Goblins
    9. Trolls
    10. Humans
    11. Pandaren
    12. Orcs
    13. Worgen
    What do you guys think of the results and the comments?

    I'm not surprised Worgen scored last, especially because they have practically 0 representation/story outside of their instanced starting zone.
    You might ask "then why are draenei scored so high?" because they're really in the same boat...

    Yeah, but Draenei show up throughout BC. Worgen scarcely showed up in Cata at ALL.

    Also I love my Worgen.

    NBA is offended by this comment.
    "I can't see it anymore... I am 907, after a while you just can't see it. I look at a star and it's just a big ball of burning gas. I know how it began and how it ends and I was probably there both times. After a while everything is just stuff. That's the problem, you make all of time and space your backyard and what do you end up with - a backyard! But you, you can see it and when you see it, I see it." -D. Who

    Whoa, that's surprising. Blood Elves are by far the most played horde race (I want to say 30%, I swear I read it somewhere, but I don't have the source so believe what you want). Therefore, I would have thought that people would most like playing them.

    Interesting though, I really like the Tauren love - just need some new models and I'll die of happiness.

    quite surprised to see Blood Elf that low when I still played the game they were bloody everywhere.

    Orcs and Humans are my favorite races because they have the most interesting lore and the coolest characters, and they look the best for their respective factions in any role IMO. I realize not everyone feels the same and that probably underscores why a model revamp is a serious necessity (hunchback Orcs and harelip Humans aren't very crowd-pleasing).

    yeah I guess, but there is a difference between liking the model and respecting the race's beliefs/lore/leaders/art/style etcetc

    BS poll pretty much. Look at what people actually roll in game for a better view, for example Taurens aren't hated, but they definitely ain't the #1.

    I wish worgen really were at 13th place, because if so i wouldn't be forced to see them everywhere i look.

    I'm not so sure this poll represents the majority of players' preferences. According to Census websites, we get a very different picture about which playable races are most popular. Take a look at http://wow.realmpop.com/us.html. According to that website, the list is as follows (from most played race to the least).

    1.) Human (16.2%)
    2.) Blood Elf (13.6%)
    3.) Night Elf (10.5%)
    4.) Worgen (7.2%)
    5.) Draenei (7.1%)
    6.) Tauren (7%)
    7.) Undead (6.7%)
    8.) Orc (6.3%)
    9.) Troll (5.8%)
    10.) Pandaren (5.6%)
    11.) Gnome (4.9%)
    12.) Dwarf (4.4%)
    13.) Goblin (4.4%)

    Another website (which recently got back up & running) is Warcraftrealms.com. The addon involved scans the /who channel in WoW periodically and sees who is online. In this way, Warcraftrealms represents toons that have been online in the past 30 days, excluding inactive alts. I’ve submitted over 100 scans within the past 30 days, ensuring accuracy for the Horde side on my realm (Thunderhorn – PVE realm). After scanning 4,000 Horde toons, the numbers for the Horde are as follows:

    1.) Blood Elf (31%)
    2.) Tauren (15%)
    3.) Undead (14%)
    4.) Orc (13%)
    5.) Troll (11%)
    6.) Pandaren (9%)
    7.) Goblin (8%)

    (Link: http://www.warcraftrealms.com/census...servertypeid=1)

    I’ll take hard data over a silly poll any day.

    Of course, things like available race/class combinations and racials can cause representation to yield different results than a preference poll. Still...I find it very hard to believe that tauren are the #1 most-liked race. xD
