Now that the dust has settled, and everyone's attention has diverged a bit, I think it's time to find out why we seem so divided over the race issue. I hope this thread won't go up in flames.

So, please discuss and analyse the whys and whats of this. Why it's so sensitive to some people, who thinks what and the impact of it? But please, whether the Explorer's Pack was a good idea or not... that's been done elsewhere.

I'm thinking the general divide lies between old ES fans and the MMO hoppers on this issue, so I put together this poll to find out if I'm right or wrong. We'll see.

I like it, it means me and my friends can play as our favoured races and still play together.

Hmm, these options... They are like snowflakes: None is like the other, but they all look kinda the same;)

Anyway. I´m against explorer pack. The argument of 'playing together with friends' does not count. Or does an Orc player in WoW complain that he can´t play with his friends in the Alliance? Nope, he simply creates a new char. Or does a Sith player about his friends in the Republic army? Maybe they do, but in those games the developers had enough guts to keep their factions clean.

But why factions at all? I would trade all the Explorers Packs for ZOS never coming up with factions, having real RvR instead of AvA. But that`s way too late.

You named two of my least fave mmos lol. Anyhoo, I'm all about freedom and believe that while there are good reasons for each faction being comprised of certain races and logically it is a rarity that some races would side with a certain faction, it COULD happen in some cases and it doesn't actually affect the game all that much -- if anything, people may experience discrimination in RP form which is kind of interesting...

Anyhoo, real people aren't so black and white on their beliefs. Most live in the vast grey area.

At the end of the day... it's just a game :)

The wording of this poll is awful! You are aware that 'more than one' means 2 or higher and 'less than two' means 1 or none. Less also implies that a decimal point can be implied such a 1.4. Just an observation.

Pfffffffffffffff haaaaaa. Okay then the argument that we have to make a character we don't want to play as in order to play with our friends "does not count" either. How inconsiderate can you possibly be?


It is not that I lack loyalty, in fact it is one of my stronger traits. It just seems that I have a much deeper, more poignant sense of betrayal.

I've always supported unlocking the factions. Coming from Eve, I've seen that it's not necessarily "the end of faction pride" or whatever everyone else says.

But I am concerned about the way it was done. I was under the impression that the devs considered it essential, and tossing it in as a premium feature for pre-orders smells like they've lost confidence in the long-term viability.

It's not an Argument, that you have to create a new character in order to Play with your friends. It´s just the reality of faction based MMOs.

I think it is pretty cool that i could choose to play as a migrant Orc living in the Aldmeri dominion. So long as this option is limited to pre-orders only, it will be rare enough to be cool and unique.

Well I started this poll because I was thinking players with a long history in the Elder Scrolls and a disinterest in PvP, like myself, were more inclined to be positive to the Explorer's Pack. I wanted to see if this could be confirmed.
I still believe that it's so but this poll so far doesn't point in any direction. We'll see if I get another 30 or so replies. If results were more conclusive by then maybe I would be able to call it.

This poll would have been better done with less options.
