Roleplaying is nothing but nonstop Blood Elf super rainbow fun party! If you roleplay on the Horde = nope, don't even try it. NOTHING but Blood Elf. It makes me wonder if Horde RPing even existed Pre-BCIf you roleplay as the Alliance = Forget about it! According to 'lore' Humans are constantly at fued with the Orcs, which is a good base to RP around. But since orcs don't exist in an RP realm...

When ever I hit RP as my lovely dwarf I get a ton of nutface nightelves going EWWW DWARF and then just ganging up to beat me up, which I can give many examples why this behaviour on mass is OOC ( but won't here ) and just makes RP hardly worth my time anymore.

I recently did a brief analysis of the numbers of characters by race in the RP realms vs. the number of characters by race in the non-RP realms. I found that the only Horde races to have an increase in the numbers by role-play were Blood Elves (in a walk the race with the largest increase) and curiously, trolls. (Though that may just be an aberration.)Conspicuously 'pretty' races like the Blood Elves, Night Elves, Humans and Draenei had the greatest gains. Theoretically 'ugly' characters like the dwarves, orcs and undead had the largest losses.None of them were huge. Most of it was in line with the other realms, and the biggest shift (dwarves) was only -3%. Like it or not, there's a hell of a lot of bad role-players out there who may well be doing the ERPing. It's a serious shame, too.

Actually, I used to RP quite a bit with my orc hunter until I got tired of both it and her. It's rare, but it is still out there :-)

No question (my main is undead, pictured in the icon) but the sheer VOLUME of blood elves is a little depressing. :(

Dear lord the blood elves. THE BLOOD ELVES.All of my characters are on roleplay realms. I never see actual roleplay. When i do, there are blood elves. Everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Seriously, Lightninghoof has roleplay night in brill every... Wensday i think it was? There where more blood elves than ALL THE OTHER RACES COMBINED. I was usually the only orc, and there where dozens of people there!Blood elves have the potential to be great characters. But there's so many they all tend to blur into eachother for me. And we're supposed to be the HORDE! Prissy little skinny supermodel ELVES do not fit into that! And they all have the same damn personality! Almost every single orc, troll or tauren i meet is unique and seems to have their own quirks. UnDead are pretty common too, but i've met some undeniably memorable characters over on that side. Blood elves? Pity-me-emos and pretty princesses as far as the eye can see.Despite all that, i'll say that horde still manages to have fewer mary sues. I spent a day roleplaying a Draenei and had some fun... Until the other draenei said she was half-worgen. And the night elf was a ruler of a lost kingdom. I'll still take the off-chance of crappy roleplay over the guarantee of no roleplay any day though. If you ask me, there should be fewer RP servers so the roleplayers are tighter knit.

@ Damon: Not all blood elves play like that. If you ever tried to pity mine, she'd have her cat eat you. And your family. She's proud to be part of the Horde and her wishes fall in line with the Warchief's. No going back, only forward. On the other hand, I've seen the emos you discuss. I wish I could flag to beat on my own faction sometimes.In general- Just rolled my first Alliance toon, and whenever I get whispered 'hey sexy', I have a macro that says "Hi, my name is Mike'. Usually works to get folks off my back. Found some excellent folks to RP with. :D

Boy isn't THAT the truth!I'm on Kirin Tor and after playing on several different MMO'RP'Gs I actually Roleplayed on many of them. More then just walking about in a city, sighing to herself to catch someone's attention, But REAL Roleplay My Female Iksar got many visitors to her home in EverquestII. People seeking out her 'skills for hire'. No No No... She was a Mercenary you silly, naughty minded people xDMy Twi'lek danced and danced in the cantinas in Tatooine like most.. but the rebels were unaware that she was actually an imperial spying on the rebel's next raid of an alliance city! .. and vice versa. She would sell imperial raiding information to the rebels at a slight cost. She had a lot of credits ;3 (this is why i like the aspect of being able to communicate with the enemy faction)What does my Orc Hunter do in Kirin Tor on WoW? not....much of anything =/ And it's not because I don't want to..not by far. But because I find it difficult to RP on a game that isn't designed for it. We cannot speak with those we are at war with to make an in-depth story, we have no player housing to customize and add to our character's story. We Have Nothing! And this makes me very sad -_- I don't even see the point of having a Roleplay Server when it's almost impossible to get a good RP going! I want to do something more then just walk about in Silvermoon, I want the environment to be more apart of the game then it currently is. Right now the Org bank is for nothing more then bored level 80's to sit on showing off their Naxx gear and epic mounts. **sigh**And has anyone noticed that there are no houses in Org? where do the orcs sleep?! outside?! what the hell?! Undercity isn't any better!*sigh* okay. I'm done now 9_9
