Which faction appeals to you based on info so far?

Forget gameplay for a second, there's plenty of chatter about that.  Think about the entertaining and well animated faction introduction videos floating around.  Now which one appeals to you more?  I ask this because I normally always go for the "Good" faction straightaway, but IMO the Dominion has waaaay more personality than the Exiles, and I can't help rooting for them even if they are hard-assed space nazis by all appearances.

Besides, you get to play as ROBOTS.

I think my decision is also based on how annoying the Exile intro character was, with that grating Southern twang in her voice.  Why do so many sci-fi games paint a picture of future colonies being founded by space hillbillies?  It annoyed me in Starcraft too.

Anyway, Dominion FTW.  Time to dish out some "galactic diplomacy".

    I picked Dominion here just due to their starting zone (I just love Savannah-based zone design).

    Going on actual faction "character", I'd go with the Exile.

    There is more info than just the intro videos so far, so I wouldn't judge the Exiles based on some chick doing an intro video haha.

     Anyways, I'm still looking at a Mechari for my first toon, unless the 4th Exile is what most people are hoping for or something even cooler :)

    Oh yeah, I saw the Exile chick point to a metal object and mention that it's best not to talk about them.  I figure by the green glow and the syringe that they're not exactly human.  Plus one of the hands that raised during the cinematic had an exposed arm bone. 

    Zombies?  Or "something even cooler"?  But what's cooler than zombies?  And if one faction has zombies and one has robots, it'll be that much harder to choose. lol

    It's just too difficult, and I'm loving how hard it's been to choose one over the other. There is not a clear-cut good guy or bad guy, which is cool. Each faction and race has its own personality and traits. Still in the mix are two unannounced classes and two unannounced races, one race going to each faction. 

    That said, I feel the Cassians screaming my name..........

    I'm torn, I normally don't like to play humans simply because I don't like to play something that is such a familiar skin. I'd rather play a toon with some anti-human characteristics. As for which faction, Dom because of the Robot, and I'll play Exile if the skeleton race is as cool as I hope ... So BOTH I guess..

    I guess i am a bit of a hard ass so Dominion.I never really stepped back to realize that i usually play the bad guy or evil race in games.

    I think i had over 10 EQ2 players and all of them were Evil side lol.

    In FFXI i must have had 10 players and 8/10 were the big bad ass Galkans.

    Go to the offical site. Take a look at the "races" tab. It shows the six known races right? But if you look at the top there are SEVEN close-ups, the one that doesnt match the ones below, he looks like an undead of some kind. Green mould or fungi growing on him. It will be interesting when finally released.

    Edit: I picked Dominion. Playing a Mechari for sure.

    I second this, though as a Human/Cassian type of guy, the faction doesn't really matter to me.

    I really love the Mechari, I kind of wish they could be reprogrammed to also be on the Exiles. Something about how oppressive the Dominion is-- coupled with how manipulative the Cassians seem to be of the other races-- kind of makes me not want to play them. I love all of the races in the Dominian but the Cassian just seem corrupt.

    I only PVP and if I have learned anything from past 2 faction games is that the "good" side is almost always outnumbered.  Knowing there will be a PVP stat choosing the Exiles is a no brainer to me. Faster Q's and more people to kill in OWPVP means faster ranking up for PVP

    On the info I would go with Dominion - but based on the zones I won't be playing them, lol.  I can't stand brown, bland desert zones.  Maybe I've just lived in Phoenix too long lol.
  • furbansfurbans Tinbucktwo, IAPosts: 965Member

    Hard to say really until last class is released.  Love em both though and each has its own great personalities.

    Likely exiles because of What is Wildstar at 2:44... just wtf was that lol

    Ha!  Yeah, I tended to avoid the Horde for a long time for the same reasons.  We'll see.
