Am I the only one who thought the elf in the Ad was male?

    Aesthetically, I of course prefer the "new" look. They are easier on the eyes and far more attractive, but they are no longer the fugly TES elves. I know I'm preaching here, but in favour of appealing to a wider audience, they decided to change their elves completely. Oh boy, what are they going to do with orcs and the rest?

    We?re all dead, just say it.

    She's a girl but i'm fine with ugly characters, you can't have top sexy lolis and top models running all around you in every game, this would be nonsense.

    I am shocked that someone would think that it's a male, there isn't a hint of androgyny in that face, even by elf standards. That's a human face with pointy ears...

    Not every person that you see with boobs is a girl ;)  A very good thing to remember when traveling in Thailand lol

    That reminds me of the scene in the fountain between Colin Firth and Hugh Grant  in the Bridget Jones Edge of Reason.

    Well that elf looks good considering how elves look in skyrim.  Meanwhile I will play a kahjeek to get the abilitiy to see in the dark.

    I didn't, very easy and blatent that it's a female.

    I think that this is the best realistic potrayal of an elf.  She has that look of assurance to the point of arrogance that elves are known for, at least high elves.  Potraying elves as sex objects is retarded and is for those that need to get out of their basement and who think it's perfectly feasable for women armor to be something you expect in Victoria's Secrets medival lingerie edition.

    I love how they did the Elf, had been racist against Elves because sick of the sexual protrayal but really like how they did them in the trailer and might actually roll an High Elf.

    To be fair though I think it's more to do with how boy elves look so girly then her looking overly masculine...

    What can I say? That's elves for you... the ladyboys of fantsy.

    looks female to me.

    She's just not a glamour model for the boys.

    All I could see in the ad was a face and it looked like a male face to me. I don't see the ad now, so I can't say why in particular, but for some reason the eyebrows stand out in my memory.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    I don't know how you could have mistaken that elf for a male. However the dark elves looked eerily alien which is awesome. High elves are the master race!!!

    A post where someone is talking about females not being hypersexed?

    What a change of pace.

    Well my complaint will seem pretty standard. She looks like an elf, but not an Elder Scrolls elf. More evidence that this game doesn't need to be made.

    a yo ho ho

    I saw a female Elf, but thats me.

    Im glad shes not in booby armor! This is what real armor should look like. Well, real for a MMORPG. :)

    Looks female to me, and I would.
  • HeafstaggHeafstagg Edmonton, ABPosts: 170Member Uncommon
    Looks female to me right away for sure. I wouldn't label her as attractive per se personally. Not that I really care too much though.

    Hey they had a choice to make an Elder Scrolls MMO. They chose to make a crap Hero Engine WoW clone.

    They used Hero for early development while they built their own, nothing more.

    I've always thought elves were supposed to be a bit androgynous anyway, although they usually lean towards the feminine side of things.

    You make me like charity

  • LokeroLokero Posts: 374Member Uncommon

    Pretty much the entire face was designed with feminine features, other than the masculine jaw.  But, alot of women have a random masculine feature on their face, IRL.

    I'm actually surprised that there are so many people who couldn't tell that was a female.  Haven't you guys ever seen normal women before?

    I do agree with a previous poster though, in that, she looks too human.  It looks like they just modeled a human woman and slapped some pointy ears on it.  

    Maybe they were trying to make her look battle-hardened and rugged, and they didn't want to make her look too dainty like a stereotypical elf, though.  In which case, they did a pretty good job making her look like a badass combatant.

    If I look at just her Eyes and her Face... oh yes, she is a definately a Woman. A smoking hot Woman to me anyways...

    .. then there's those ears.... end of fantasy.

    As a fan of Elder Scrolls, and considering that she is portraiting a female Elf of the Elder Scrolls... I say ...

    Kill it. Only good Elf is a dead Elf.

    If Zenimax and Bethesda thought they would entice me to play TESO by showing me a hot Elf Female they failed. Should have shown me a hot Breton or even a Argonian Female, now we're talking....
