As you all know, the game have only 3 races per faction, if the game have the success we hope, this will make a lot of people seems the same or very smilar, so:

Do you think 3 races each faction is enough or will help having more races in each faction or getting new ones in neutral faction that can play where they want?.

This is just the start.
Most likely with every expansion after release they will add more factions.
For the first phase 6 seems fine.

And I believe I read in an interview that it'll start with 8, that 2 are still not released.

I will answer the same that I just posted in a similar question in the official forums.

Im in the opinion that more races will be nice.
But with a great customization this 6 races will be enough.

I am really hoping that more races will be added in the future because it is a bit disappointing. BUT, they have covered the fantasy tropes as well as add their own unique flavour to it.

That is my thoughts as well...I think more will be added in future expansions.

I hope we have two more races as Genzong wrote before the release, but is nice to know that there are plans to get more playable races in the future although we must wait for the expansions.

I think that is good for a the release of the game. Yes I would like to see more in the future on an expansion but it is fine now.

I'm gonna keep hoping there are more, not a huge fan of any defiant race yet. There have to be some kind of human on the defiant side... That would be weird if there weren't. Humans are historically the most popular race in MMOs, believe it or not.

I know it doesn't make as much sense from a lore perspective, but I would love to see characters 'unlocked' by either the community's action such as freeing a dormant race or on a per account basis be achieving some quest (tho too much like a flag for my comfort level).

Actually yes I really hope there will be more races. The reason being if you look at racial perks they really are aimed toward a calling, so with addition of the other 2 races unreleased should confirm a race for each calling.
So there should be more races so each calling could truly have more than one choice.
Yes each calling can use the other 2/3 races but the perks would not line up if you see what I mean.
Hikaru Najumi - Paragon Reaver ?

Sider Kilans - Archon Warlock ?

Jarion Evarmir - Warlock Necro ?

I think for release its a good amount but i also do see us getting more in expansions like others have said. They can't really put it all out on the table at one time have to keep a few for later :D

On a side note i would really like to see how dwarfs look in game as the screens i have seen leave me wanting a bit better hehe sorry just in any MMO that has them i usually have a dwarf char at some point.

Like others I think 6 is good for release, though I hope shortly down the road (at least with first expansion) they add a new playable race. I really like to experiment with different classes and races. :)

Would I like to have more races? Sure.

Do I feel the game will be lacking and missing something if it releases with "just" 6 races? Nope.

I would much rather see 6 races done well than 10 or more races done poorly.

yeah, the number of races is nearly as important as execution. you say the perks are geared towards one calling, but frankly, id be a little disappointed if only the "proper" race was viable. especially with a system like they have for classes, its obvious Rift is about variety. more races could be good, but if theyre just to provide a "warrior" race or something, i think it might actually decrease variety.

i agree its much better to have 6 complete races now than 10 incomplete ones. remember, its an MMO; they always change and add content.

I'm on the fewer the better side.
As more and more races are added to an MMO their development often leads to either overpowered races, or races that are almost required to be comparatively effective in a specific role.

In my opinion the ideal setup from a game play perspective is 1 race.

For launch, I don't have a problem with it, but I mainly would like to see more races just for more diversity if anything. It would be nice to see more added as time goes on, but I'd rather see them done right rather than just tacked on to have more races.

Echoing everyone else saying that they'll prolly patch in additional races later.

I think 6 races, for release seems fair.

But I also really hope some new races for the 1st extension.
