Hello every one!

 

Magnnus has been working really hard on a project that includes this survey: http://www.cleversurveys.com/survey/5629499534213120_5649050225344512/guild-wars-2-classes-and-races

that can "predict" what classes/races you would like the most (by percent). I thought this might be a good tool for the community as well as new players. :)

 

OH! As for the experienced players, would you guys mind helping his survey be more accurate? Just click on the link above and 

click on "make this survey more accurate", answer the survey including the "prediction question" and your answers will be 

used to improve the accuracy of the predictions. 

 

I hope you guys like it. :D

Favorite class is accurate (Nelfaar is a blast in WvW), but the rest really aren't.  Ranger is my favorite PvE class, you'll see me use Tabitha for all the PvE events. 

Race is also off, because except for Sekkerhund, who is Norn because of name, I exclusively play Human females and don't care for Sylvari or Asura at all.  My new Revenant might be Charr, but tbh if I can come up with another Human female design for it, especially with all of the new hair and faces, I most likely will stick to my usual.

Interesting survey and I was pleasantly surprised to see Mesmer as the top Class pick, but ordering the others is hard for me, because it really depends on my mood and the task at hand.

Ironically my top races are charr and norn but I have not gotten a character of either past level 25 because I never liked their camera for them. I may have to try them more with the new camera options.

Other than really low %'s its not bad on the classes.  Thief over Warrior though. 

Races.... are really off. Human, Norn are what I'm playing. I wouldn't play an Asura but I could see how its coming out of the classes.

I was thinking about this and in my opinion, Race is more a matter of aesthetics than personality. Class on the other hand, plays more to mental and emotional inclinations, so, they would require a different set of questions.

Its also pretty long, which I imagine is to be thorough, but if those areas were split, it might cut it down some.

The results you can just select with your mouse on the results page of that site, and copy (ctrl-C on pc) and paste (ctrl-V) directly into your response here.

The flair is a forum signature. If you go to this page (below) you can set one up, either one from the site or your own (it probably won't show up immediately, as changes are done in batches once a day, at 1am PST, so you may need to wait til tomorrow to see it in your posts).

The classes seem pretty accurate, but the races are way off for me. I have 8 Asura, lol. No other race has escaped being rerolled as Asura by level 20, although I'm periodically tempted to create Charr. Human rated high, but I do not, and will not, play a human female because the objectification thing annoys me (and in fairness, it's well beyond the scope of the survey to detect that meta-detail, so I can understand the difference in that result). Interesting to see the classes though.

Necromancer    7.7%

 Thief                7.4%                                     

Ranger is accurate as I play him the most, but my second favorite is Necro which comes in at the bottom.  Guardian is by far my least favorite.

Human   26.32%

Sylvari   22.55%

Norn      18.42%

Asura    17.46%

Charr     15.25%

This is closer.  Sylvari is my favorite, followed by Asura, and Human.  I have more Human than Asura, but mainly due to not liking the Asura personal story.

Wow, this survey is great !

 

My current char (norn engnineer) is the opposite of what the survey suggests (norn was my lowest rank, engnieer 2nd lowest).

Time to roll a new tune of sylvari ele or mesmer. I will find my happy.

Wow it was super accurate for me! 100% Norn (all but one of my characters are Norn) and 100% Guardian which is my current main, with Ranger and Warrior following and I have those as well. Pretty neat.

100% warrior and 100% Norn. Fairly accurate but I do not play GW2 - this might make me want to play! :)

 

I have played before but have not enjoyed it that much (blasphemy I know).

Btw, in case you didn't know, the website lets you create your own predictors for just about anything. If anyone is interested in creating their own predictor on the website, I'd be happy to help you out (as the website creator, I know all the ins and outs).
