    cool epic transphobia in like half of this thread no wonder ppl hate gamer/weeaboo dudebros
    (and y'all wonder why girls tend to be on the quiet end in online spaces)

    anyways i'm non-binary but i guess i more accurately am aligned as "Male"

    Wow... so few of us. In MS1 back in the day more than half my guild were females. I was hoping it would be the same in MS2, but the poll results are kinda disheartening. :(

    It's probably moreso that there's less women than men browsing the Maplestory 2 forums before CBT release. That said, at the moment the poll is showing 25% which is pretty good compared to some games.

    To be honest I bet there are quite a few girls who put boy and a few boys who put girl just to mess with this poll so imo I feel like there is a decently healthy mix

    Most of the time I make male characters. But this time I chose to be a vegetable........

    I still think the results are ok on the female side. If you were to check the ratio on other games, it would be 1 female for every 20 guys, or even worse. But it's nice to see that this game has a more diverse community.

    Wow I was honestly expecting the female ratio to outweigh the male because of the art style!

    I mean I wasn't expecting the females to outweigh but I was expecting at least to be 50/50, o well

    Where do I go if I'm someone who's not sure of their gender? 0.0
    Well, I guess I'll just put my sex instead of my gender?

    Good luck getting honest results. The truth is many girls play as males to avoid harassment and get respect for their gaming skills. Many guys play as girls to represent loved ones and strategically disorient other male players. If there is no ability difference between characters that is. Also the pervy reasons. (Anything to make my game a little more "yaoi".)

    It was always rather consistent in a 50/50 ratio since the art style also appeals to girls.

    Male seems to be dominant, but there is a sizable population of female players roaming around as well.

    As others have said, Maplestory seems to be badass and cutsy enough that both genders can find something fun to do.
