Mine is rather similar too.

Pretty much standard Jim Mei male look. I tried to give him sort of a nasty sneer, but you really can't see it that well. I just wish we could pick other images for our avatars, or that the selection options were a bit more diverse. I would willingly sacrifice all the fancy backgrounds for more head choices. Better headgear choices would be nice too. I think the main reason that you see so many other Jim Mei like mine is that the headgear/hair choices are mostly freaky crap like "Ambassador Molari" hair, no hair at all, or freaky things stuck to your head. The shirt selections don't help either. Jin Mei are supposed to be "Japanese" in culture, but they have frigging Dracula collars on half their outfits.

We need better Avatar choices CCP. And at least one free avatar change per character.

Some more variety for facial structure/weight would be interesting, as we don't tend to see any fat/balding people, or other such eccentricities.

When ambulation rolls around you'll be able to start purchasing custom costumes, etc, so things might start to branch out a bit, although I suppose once the 'faction' clothing goes on sale for 1 bil each there will be whole crews of people running around with the same 'epic gear' and it will be WOW in space....

to the OP, you are correct in that most people go for the generic look.

Top victims: Khanid clear hood, Amarr hood over face, etc.

The old avatars are fine but the new bloodlines are terrible as far as facial variation goes.

I think the clothing should be free and adjustable like the avatar was.

One thing ive actually noticed is that there is no black people avatars (I think). Would be nice with some of those since we have whites and asians.

I created a new avatar after 18 months or so and swapped them over. This one is so much better than the last.

It certainly seems to me that the Brutor are a negro race.

Yes something along those lines, the 'do you want a large order of fries with that' sorta look.

A lost of people claiming they hgave never seen someone similar to theirs... well, I see people who have the same 'face' just not the same details.

Thats probably the ore issue, everyone who picks the same race/bloodline ends up with the same starter face, and for some bloodlines, the choices for variation are too limited to create a truly different avatar.

I also don't think the backgrounds add much. What about a background which is a station widnow that looks out onto space (like newsreaders have with the city behind them) Or a background which shows something game related, to add context.

I'd be all in favor of adding more options/diversity to Avatars, especially with 'ambulation' maybe possibly coming into the game. (side rant: silly word for such a cool concept, when is the last time you ambulated to the fridge for a soda?)

A lot of the stuff we can do with current avatars is fairly limited. "What do you mean? I look nothing like him! My smirk is a fraction of an inch higher on the left!" et al.

Definitely keeping this mug after the update.

I'm quite sexy if I do say so myself. Amarr females are hideous, as are most caldari, except Deteis.
