I think that one factor might be familiarity. For me, WoW was my first MMO. When I was first creating a character, there were several knobs to tweak and a lot of things that I didn't know about yet.Choosing a human reduced some of the unknowns for me (or at least I thought I did). Because the race was more familiar to me, I made the assumption that there would be things about it that I could take for granted. So choosing a familiar race was my way of trying to reduce the amount of "newness" that I was exposing myself to.My second toon was a gnome, and my third toon was a night elf. But my first toon, which happens to be my main, was a human.
