    i play male toons only. mainly because i'm male in real life.
    i have 10 alliance toons and made 1 horde to be with friends who faction changed.
    all 11 toons are level 90.

    I play various gender and races but I don't play Horde, because I found out at Blizzcon several years ago how vile and disgusting the people that chose to play the bad guys faction really are.

    All of my characters are Alliance on US-Stormrage except for a couple L10-20 alts I played while the server was down years ago. Most of my characters are female (Paladin, Rogue, Warrior are male, other 8 are female).

    It's not that I mind playing Horde, I just don't like starting completely from scratch with no gold or anything to get a new character started.

    Pretty much this. I faction changed my favorite characters to horde for the majority of Cata, but went back to Alliance about a month before MoP.

    I don't like playing guy characters if I have the choice to be a girl. As a female gamer who grew up playing games with mostly male leads, it's nice to be a girl when I have the choice.

    Currently I am just a Hordie. I have leveld and Alliance to 30ish, haven't played in awhile. The only reason I haven't gone all the way to 90 is because I don't know any Allies to play with. When WoD hits a friend and I are rolling gnomes though with the instant 90 boost, so that will change.

    Very simple reasons for me

    One faction because:
    I can transfer mats and gold around alts, so every toon must be same faction

    I picked Alliance, I thought Horde looked ugly and evil, I wanted to be a good guy.

    One gender:
    I wanna feel like a hero, so I wanted my toon to be same gender as me as I can feel more immersion.

    I had even made a toon that had my name and looked like me, but it was a rogue and I got bored real fast with melee gameplay.

    I play both factions. But only female players. (I am male) because the male models in wow a fucking terrible. This may change with the new models coming out but. My main will always be a female orc but.

    I never brought myself to creating a new character. Most of my characters are female(Well, I only have two and they both are female), and I hate leveling. So, I wouldn't have a reason to make a male character. I do, though, occasionally, just to mess around with friends.

    I only play female. I am female, and I like being female and see nothing wrong with it. I dont see a necessary need to play a male character?

    also, because of that. even though lately i feel the blizzard writers have been writing their females pretty horribly. I adore the GW2 norn females.

    Maybe certain sexes of which ever faction look better than the male models(pretty much how I feel about Alliance models atm) along with maybe you only have friends on one faction and you feel comfortable with that faction because it's all you know.

    I have multiple toons but they exist mainly as tradies for my main .

    In every game I have played I have never seriously played a faction like the horde , not my cuppa tea , I play to exterminate said factions not to join them . I do have a couple of horde toons in wow but don't play them often at all ,just don't enjoy it .

    Over 80% of my time is spent on my main and the next highest is the toon that is acting as bank alt . My other three 90s I play 5 minutes a day to harvest/replant the farms

    Play mainly Horde faction due to friends, however gender wise I stick to females because my mind relates to them better and I can connect better with a female mind in games.

    I am female and I choose to play females because my characters, in the ingame world, are "me". Playing a male would feel strange, and I also don't really like any of their models to play.

    I play:

    Female Orc
    Female Blood Elf
    Female Undead
    Female Night Elf

    I play female toons because I HATE the Hulk Hogan look of WOW males.

    I play Horde because I don't care how my hair looks.
    @Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.

    I have characters all over the place like a mad woman's custard but in the end, does it really matter if a person likes sticking with one race and one gender? It's their 15 bucks a month, really.
    I used to be snow white, but I drifted...

    I played horde because all of my friends play it, I rerolled an alliance because another friend played alliance aswell but in the end he just started playing horde aswell. Not really a point in playing alliance by myself is there? I only play male characters because I'm... Male IRL, I guess? I never got the appeal of rolling a different gender toon. It's one of the things I hated about diablo 2, not being able to choose your characters' gender.

    Only playing one faction.
    Limiting yourself to half of the content in a game you're paying a subscription for.
    Okey-dokey.

    Playing Alliance, as Horde is dead on our server gave Horde on our server a few tries, but gave up after a few months every time simply because the population is too small. There it's even impossible to get a Celestials group formed on the day of reset
