Recently activated a new account and discovered a “new” or maybe “beta” character creation screen that is awful.
It doesn’t start off too bad, though the map is oriented to the south rather than north like all other maps ever. You pick your starting race as normal.
This is where things derail. You are asked to select a school (starter corp) with brief descriptions of each, but there is no bloodline selection.
You are then asked to selected a body type. Boy or Girl. Again no bloodline. The discerning eye my note that despite selecting Minmatar Repubic I am choosing between what appears to be a gallente male dressed in Caldari/amarr clothes and a Caldari Woman in half Gallente/ minmatar clothes. When attempting body modifications, such as facial tattoos or clothing, I am only provided with gallente options, despite selecting Minmatar Republic.
After hitting randomize a few times I got this very authentic Minmatar pilot. No options to do a portrait.
I don’t know what this character creation system is, but its NOT what should be presented to new players. This represents reduced agency and choices, and muddles the in-universe lore and story. Not a good way to start people off. I cannot get to the creator that existing accounts are using. I do not want to make a BS character with this unintelligent, half baked, dodgy character creator.
DO NOT make this a game feature.
For clarity: This is live on TQ.
