[...] and a minority of people have Charr characters anyways
Depends on the server. My server is charr heavy, but I knew it would be and that's why I joined it. I tend to see a lot more charrs and humans around than anything else. Curiously, on that selfsame server, asura and sylvari are more rare.
Of course, this means that the rare sylvari/asura tend to stand out, because I tend to try to figure out how long it's been since I saw the last one. >_> So on my server, asura and sylvari are the minority characters.
Does it really matter? You're playing as an animal, your face is covered in fur
Does it really matter? Your character has one of a few limited facial choices, all of which look like china dolls.
I mean, really. Everyone has different aesthetic values. And clearly this does matter to the OP.
