The only way we’re not flexible is that you don’t get to pick your character’s gender. One of the mistakes our competitors have been making is not to make their games ‘female friendly’ enough. We’re going to solve this in Origin by assigning your account a random gender when you register, so you will either get to play all female characters, or all male characters. That way we’ll have an equal mix of female and male avatars.
Designer o’ Stuff
I can’t tell you what a great idea this is. Its about time developers realized that they’ve left entirely too much control about gender in the hands of the players. This SHOULD be randomly generated so that we can stop all this nonsense of men playing females to get phat lewt and prey on unsuspecting young men trying to get a date in MMORPGs. Kudos to Windfeather for designing a game with such ground-breaking ideas and the courage to come right out and post it on the UO2 boards.
