My old vote is wrong by now though
Well I did vote a year ago...
Still the same though =P
I'm not really concerned at all...most diehards like us founders will naturally lean towards the space marines because they are the main force we know and love simply because of the emphasis put on them.....FTP will take care of the orcs, angsty teens will fill up chaos, and don't tell me every elf lover in the world won't pick up the Eldar if they should start playing....not to mention those who like underdog factions. So long as the game is balanced well I don't see a problem with numbers happening....not like people may think. Not to mention, 4 PC races +Tyranids...if a single group starts dominating I can see them being kept in check by unofficial alliances/pincer attacks/A.I. (aid).
ANGSTY TEENS FILLING UP CHAOS?!
you are probably right...
ave dominus cheerios and all that...
It's nothing against Chaos...I know they have their diehards too....but yeh...angsty teens...my condolences for Chaos...atleast they will have alot of no lifers come summer then
In SW:TOR population was hugely skewed towards Empire, so it does seem the younger players flock to "evil", so to speak.
In WoW however, Alliance was the most populated, even though the Horde is the more "mosntrous" faction.
So younger players want to be evil, but also pretty?
If so, it's 50/50 on whether they'll flock to Chaos or not. I guess the Chaos Space Marine models are aesthetically pleasing though (or "badass", as they say), so I guess they will. If they were all followers of Nurgle with lots of blemishes perhaps they wouldn't.
Eldar getting elf-lovers is a given. We'll also get every player who wants to play female, and the faction speaks to some other niches too (advanced alien tech, high "magic" affinity, etc...). Pre-release forum polls on faction sizes are always wrong to a greater or lesser extent, because the forum population is very different from the population after release. It takes a special kind of person to be talking here right now about a game 12+ months away.
However, if it's a 12-year old kid with any prior knowledge on 40k, they WILL go Space Marines. Possibly Ultramarines.
Well I'm special... At least the Farseer told me I was...
You're special to me, don't worry. <3
Lifetime achievement completed! Now I can go to the Infinity Circuit with a smile. =D
