i chose mine based on the fact i thought charisma was going help me become well liked via npc corps and help me in reverse engineering/science type stuff...it took 6 years for reverse engineering to appear in any form and in that time i got stuck with 26 points in charisma attribs lol the remap was a god send

I chose Gallente because my brother was Gallente. I wanted to be Caldari, and didn't know anything about the game.

*edit* Talking about my first character, this one is minmatar.

Caldari because their back ground as the Underdogs during the Gallante-Caldari War. Merchandisers because at the time I was bored and felt silly.

Second Character Minmatar. Siebester Tribe because they were the violent and hard core rebellious types.

third Character Ammatar who I roleplay as a distant cousin of my Minmatar. Chose him to show a loyalist side of the tribe which was Loyal to the Empire.

I chose amarr because I had a rl friend who played minmatar and caldari, and a rl friend who played gallente. The laser buff had just come out, and amarr were finally cool to play (about 2 years ago) so I went with them.

Chose Khanid because they have the cyber knights.

When you first started playing eve why did you choose the race/bloodline etc you did?

Personally I read all the flavour text and quite liked the idea of being a member of the space french. I'm a pure blood Gallente pilot who parents were activists and that just kind of sounded like fun.

In hindsight I would have looked at all the different races, realised the flavour text meant nothing and not spent as long as I did specialising in Gallente skills. I mean, would anyone train hybrids if they knew how much they sucked?




I chose Gallente as a race because it is closest to my ideology of freedom and tolerance.
However, I mostly fly Amarr because they are über :-)

I chose Gallente because I liked the look of their titan over the other races'...after playing the game for a week or so I discovered that you couldn't buy one on the market!

I started Amarr because I like their background their polarity, and their beautiful ship designs (Caldari ships look like some weird Frankenstein geometrics lesson to me... :P)

chose Gallente because are the nearest to my personal way of thinking.

Caldari? just some capitalists scum.
Amarr? slavers and in service of a fail-God.
Minmatar? too tribal and violent-looking.

I just wish Gallente ships were usefull for something, looks like i should have started playing before when gallente were cooler.
(srsly any Gallente ship have at least one stronger counterpart from at least 1 of the other races)

I can't honestly remember whether Lhanisa's role came first, or emerged after I decided to play a Khanid Cyber Knight, but I'll just assume they were close enough together to work as a full answer here.

Lhanisa is the end result of me trying to pick out the most challenging role I could think of to RP in the game. Now, granted, knowing more about the PF of EVE now than I did a year ago I could probably think up some more challenging concepts, but this was what I ended up with back then. A former Amarr Navy pilot turned civil dissident capsuleer journalist, advocating the (true) independence of the Khanid people from the Amarr empire.

Basically, what I decided to play ended up being a character advocating a cultural revival of a people who've been under the Amarr's thumb for (if I recall correctly) millenia. Certainly not the easiest character I've ever decided to play, and I'm hoping I'll get the chance to actually involve myself in EVE and play the role I picked out a full year ago, when I first played.

I chose Amarr because:
-I love their ship designs. I feel that they are the best damn looking ships in the game.
-Lasers.

I chose Khanid because:
-Standard Amarrian and Ni-Kunni weren't brilliant looking, back in the day.
-I could have the Khanid hat/helmet affair instead of hair, something I would pay Aurum to get back.
-Cyber Knight!
-Did I mention how bad Amarrian and Ni-Kunni looked?

Caldari Achura because you used to get less charisma than anyone else. Too bad the remaps forced me to put that 1 awesome point back into charisma..

Someone explained to me that:

-"playing eve as Minmatar is like going down a flight of stairs taped to an office chair, firing an Uzi"
-playing Minmatar was hard mode
-all the ships were duct taped together

I had no clue the relevance of this information but it all sounded like my type of race.

(Actually, at the time brutor had the highest percep/willpwr possible. After having someone explain attributes and the weighting for gunnery, missiles and spaceship command... it was an easy pick.)

It was eight years ago, I don't remember anymore.

I only have some very hazy recollections of looking through the attribute/skill combos you could get from each bloodline (Yes I was a noob then. Still am but that's another story).

I went Gallente since I liked the background story, and wanted to play with Drones.

Although I can't remember the background story at all now lol

Maybe time for some light reading ;)

I choosed gallente because of charisma, stayed because of the drones. Nowadays that doesn't mean much.

Sebiestor Rebel because I liked the idea of fast ships, guerilla warfare and hit'n'run tactics.

Turns out, doesn't really matter.

"..technologicaly superior, second only to the Jovians.."
"...with brutal efficiency..."

Those lines along with the fact that they don't believe in democracy was the deciding factor.
I immediately dismissed minmatars as nothing more than tribal savages that deserve nothing but slavery,
Amarrians would be nice if they weren't religious fanatics.
Gallente were ok-ish, but meh...kinda like Elves in space.
