    I wish I could play an alt from kt and darkiron races, but the rep grind is keeping me from doing it. Already had to use my little free time to level an unwanted alliance character to 120, ugh.

    So I imagine this is more that people haven't finished the tedious rep grinds yet.
    They were just released they need time to build playaerbase. I keep on checking the realm population and they're currently sceon most played race after blood elves. Give them as much time as void elves had and I'm sure they will have significatnt % They're already reaching Highmountain Tauren population on 120 level population. And how long they're made playable? 3 weeks?

    Exactly, just released and you either need to level up from 20 or pay $20 to race-change. It will take time for their population to reach a steady state.

    I truly am curious why people feel the need to bash one of the very few races in the game that isn't just a stereotypical Barbie/Ken. Are they so insecure about their own bodies they feel the need to project on a Fantasy Race in a Fantasy Game? Especially when there are already over a dozen other races they could play.

    Unappealing body types + Rep grind that people are sick of + Level 20 - 120 / Boost + Lower game population

    It's not really a surprise that they aren't played as much as the other choices available to players, ESPECIALLY the first two.

    I dunno, the Kul'Tiran males look like santa and that's adorable so it was worth it for me!

  7. #227
    Yeah, unattractive body types will never get famous. Just look at Pandaren - best animated race in the game, yet hardly anyone plays them..

    0.5% of all 120 alliance EU chars. ~7550 by now, a joke.
    ~32870 Zandalari for comparison, the number will probably surpass Highmountain and Mag'har quickly.

    They were always going to be niche.

    Most of the ones I've seen are played by maturer adults. I'm glad they offer races for all kinds rather than only appealing to the people wanting pretty.

    Yes, people are that insecure. Some people are scared that people in-game will assume that if you play a fat character, you are fat yourself. Or a Furry.
    As if playing an Orc or a Blood Elf is somehow indicative of what the person behind the screen looks like...

    Zandalari have:
    1) good racials
    2) upright troll posture on males that people wanted for a long time (we got upright orcs but not trolls)
    3) paladins that aren't cows or barbies (not everyone likes belfs or taurens and now they have a good option)
    4) lots of customization options
    5) rich lore.

    Kul Tirans have:
    1) racials that are equal or worse than Highmountain Tauren (see their popularity)
    2) silhouette that only looks good in heritage armor, most other armors look stretched and distorted on them, they look like having a big belly small legs
    3) druids and shamans that are probably the biggest reason why anybody plays them, if you hate nelfs / worgens and want a druid, or you hate dwarves / spacegoats / pandas and want a shaman...
    4) less customization options than other allied races, for example no tattoos
    5) weird lore because for long time we though Kul Tiras is just another human kingdom, and now we're getting some asspull they're some half drust giants (that was never said before bfa and basically whole proudmoore family uses normal human model)

    So yeah, ofc, Zandalari win in this pairing.

    Still working on the rep but I plan on making a Female KT Druid and a male Shammy or Warrior! KTs look amazing in plate armor. I was indiferent when it came to them when they were first introduced because I think humans in general are boring, but when I leveled through Kul Tiras I grew fond of them!

  12. #232
    For one, they are locked behind a reputation and a $25 race change (or a 200 hour long level grind if you roll a new toon). Second, Humans, Night Elves, and Blood Elves are far and away the most popular player races in the game, and make up a combined more-or-less 43% of the game's population. Of the remaining more-or-less 60% of players, Kul'tians have to compete with 18 other playable races. Doesn't help that the female model looks very unappealing. If you want a rugged looking female warrior, the other races do a better job, so one's investment in Kul'tirans depends on whether or not they prefer the male KT over all of the other options available. Statistically speaking, you're just not going to see many Kul'trains.

    Because Void Elves are an edgy version of the race everyone who wants to pretend to be pretty already plays, obviously everyone's gonna play that considering the age of most players.

    What I really dislike about KT is the lack of faces. I wanted to make a relatively young looking guy, but it's impossible to look younger than 45 lol. Pretty much the same issue with NB.

    It's really a big same face syndrome. Like compare it to regular humans faces who have a lot of range.

    Similar problem with male orc, they all look wrinkly and not even ferocious.

    My newly changed Zandalari druid (was troll before) was turned into a female KT upon using the orb of deception, and I can say I'm in love with the KT model.

    The dance is horrible (same as for Dwarf females), but the way they look and move around is adorable! :3

    The average age of WoW players is and always was 23 or 25+.

    Any proof of this? Because in that case most people are just really fucking stupid.

    I believe it was part of a dev watercooler or some infochart released some time ago. I imagine the age has only gone up as the game grows older.
    The average gamer's age is also adult, so makes perfect sense. And yes, most people are really stupid, I'd have to agree with that sentiment. The fact that people behave the way they do despite being legal adults and then some, is just mind boggling.

    Then again, games where there's a significant amount of younger players tend to be far more toxic as well.

    I have been a male night elf forever and I have never liked it. Also I'm not a fan of the worgen hunch.

    While I admit the Kul Tirans are large, I race changed and have enjoyed every second. Along with their animations I love the Kul tiran culture and the lore behind their druidism/forms.

    I'm a slim gym rat who is in the process of getting my personal trainer license and I love being a kul tiran! People always seem to feel the need to be the visually perfect race but I would be a kul tiran male druid over any of the other options right now any day!
