    I don't really ask if someone is a he or a she while playing the game, because frankly I couldn't care less. Met quite a lot of female players through the years though, some being very eager at waving the "I'm a girl X3" banner. Whatever floats their boats I guess.

    Hey believe it or not, women also play male toons. Surprising right?

    You would be surprised, both my current GF, my 2 ex GF's, 7 women I work with, 8 close female friends play WoW, and I think we counted 37 actual women in our 170 person guild.

    there are far far more Female gamers than people realise.

    I'm female and play WoW (a lot!), but most of my characters are male. Maybe you should be wondering how many of the male toons are played by real men.

    During TBC we had 9 females that raided regularly and 4 or 5 who were in the guild as casual.

    I'm a woman, and I play. Probably half my main's guild is composed of female players. There are plenty of us out there... it's just a lot of us just want to play the damn game without waving the 'lookit me, I'm a GIRL tee hee!' flag. You assume I'm a guy until you hear my voice on vent? Suits me just fine. Ditto for most of the gals I run with.

    I am a "real" female and I have been playing WoW with my husband since July 2006, so late Vanilla. My guild has a large number of female players; I think most or all are 30+ years old as the guild has several married or long-time couples. Two of our officers are female, and it's not uncommon to log in and find more women than guys on during off-raiding hours, even though we're not a "chick" guild, as we tend to play the most hours. That said, even in MY guild (which has, like many, experienced a lot of turnover this xpac), I can almost guarantee if I hop into vent, I'll have at least one person go, "whoa, it's a REAL girl." lmao

    More often than you'd think, I strike up a conversation with another player in game, and find out THEY are married women 30+ years of age who happen to play WoW.

    I used to be a rather bad-ass, hard core raider (sometimes the only female raider in my guild of the time) but gave it up and went casual mid-ICC. Got tired of being treated differently (constantly losing gear to weaker, less reliable MALE players) or having my suggestions ignored - only to have a guy say the SAME THING two seconds later, at which point it's the BEST IDEA EVER. Having to hear guys talk about "bewbs" non-stop made me nuts. I'm SOOO not a prude and actually enjoy good raunchy adult humor, but the juvenile crap makes me grind my teeth - Probably because I'm not 12, I'm a grown damn woman. These days, I'm super casual in that I don't raid, but I'm hard core in the sense that I play a ton and have (11) level 90s (my main is only ilvl 507 or 508) with maxed professions.


    I play mostly female toons, but have a few male characters. I prefer female toons because they're more fun to xmog, plus, I'm female and guys tend to go all "wtf" if a strange male toon hugs them or blows them a kiss in thanks. lol

    Guys might be more aware of all the women in the game if so many didn't have such an attitude if you tell them about it. Example (and this was actually a forum topic a while back) when a female player is called "Dude" and makes a comment back like, "actually, Dudette," you're apparently an attention seeking whore. I just don't happen to like being called "Dude" when I'm not one, plus, if it's after I've done something super nice, I want my gender to get the credit(!), but it's THAT common attitude that makes many women play "on the down low".

    I'm a lady and I've been playing WoW with my husband since 2006. I'm more hush about it in-game. It causes too much drama and too many troll comments. It's easier to just type out in raid that my mic is broke, but that I can hear everyone.

    Side note: My MW Monk Panda is a male toon. I thought the males looked cute.

    Back when we were raiding....7 out of our 25 man raid core were female (including one of our main tanks). Oddly enough, and flying in the face of 'convention' (that women 'apparently' prefer healers) only one was a healer.

    Many do, that's true. But I was only talking about the ones I knew were women for a fact. Real ID/talked on vent, etc. Not just "plays a female toon, has a girly name".

  15. #155
    I'm no lady, thank you. I'm a tank. I'm no girl. I'm a woman.

    I don't think a lot of gentlemen play WoW (outside my guild), though I know a lot of boys play it.

    Terminology...

    Wait...wait...wait.....you're saying chicks are showing you that they are naked via Skype (or some other program) or are they just saying that they are to you?

    I've played with way more than a lot of the people here, apparently.

    However, most of them don't care to announce their gender and you would never even know it until you got in voice chat with them. Some even play male characters...not to avoid attention, but because they like the character models better.

    I'm currently in a PvP/RBG guild and at least 6+ of the members are female, generally that's at least 3 in the main RBG group.

    I've gotta admit though, sometimes I do get tired of when we have to bring a pug and the first thing they say when they get in the Skype call is "Wow, there are so many women in here". It's shouldn't be that surprising, really.

    Probably the most "girl-ish" thing I do in my own guild chat is mock my server's biggest troll by spamming "OMG Hi guys! ^.^", but you'd have to be on the same server to get the joke. :P
