WoW: Bold Experiment.

Well I will be making a Worgen who is alliance when the expansion hits. So I want to make a toon, get them to 80, and start getting some heirloom gear.

I thought here’s my chance to run a little experiment, and write my findings. So I’ve spoken about Gender differences in video gaming before. I am going to put the shoe on a different foot now. I have all my MMO history rolled pretty much male toons, so when I speak of gender issues I can only see the male side of things.Β  So I want to see first hand do females get treated differently or poorly at all in MMO’s

My Experiment: To roll a female toon, a pallie to be specific. So I can heal/tank/dps on a random Alliance server. Try to be gender neutral in the way I act, and do things…to see if I am treated different, or have any bad experiences.

I promise not to giggle alot. πŸ™‚

** ok maybe not that bold either, but it’ll be fun to see if I get free gold, or hit on at all.

  5. I actually resubbed to WoW again recently to create an alliance toon for BoA gear as well. Worgen Rogues are going to be the best thing since…. umm Blood Elf paladins

    I’ve went a female toon a couple of times but to be honest its a pain in the ass if people dont know you are a bloke.

  6. I can tell you already that you do get treated differently. Even before they ask they are all hoping that you are a girl. I am a girl and i have played both female & male myself and when there is no vent and you are in a PUG that no one knows you, even the language is different. the most noticeable one was when i got the greedy achievement on my man-priest. i got jokingly called a greedy prick. that is indeed something my shaman has never been called!

  7. Hello friends, good post and good urging commented at this place,
    I am truly enjoying by these.
