So, given the devs have said they dont want any choice a player makes when making a character to limit them from being effective in any role, we must conclude that RACE will be no more than a cosmetic choice.
No racial factions
No racial limitations
No racial variation (that impacts on game play)
No racial advantage
In short race is about as relevant as choosing the color of your underpants.
For me this is a big disappointment.
