    Default Rogue class overpopulation?

    I know its not the 'for sure' thing to go by, but why does rogues have almost double the posts of other classes in the forums? I was thinking of making a rogue for ranged dps and support roles, but I never liked being the class that 50% of the population played.

    Doesnt help that in a few topics i read about what people will be playing it seemed every other response was some soul of rogue. I should probably play what i like but that nagging mentality of being useful and unique is always in the back of my mind lol.

    Because the have had at least one "OP spec" or another at every stage of beta so far. And everyone likes to go and qq about it in the rogue forums.

    I played on Belmont shard so far in Beta and while rogues do seem to be prevalent, it didn't seem like they were close to 50% of the population. I'd say go with what you enjoy playing. The different callings have different play styles as well as the different soul combinations giving you the option to perform different roles in a group/raid. If you haven't had the opportunity to play yet, try them out and see which you prefer.

    While it might not be an actual 50% population of rogues, most warfronts I was in had around 50% of both teams being rogues. Rogues are definitely the most played class by far.

    I had this same feeling when playing.

    And while there's 9 souls and 9^whatever builds, it's still kind of disheartening to see.

    Rogues have 3 of the most popular class types right now.

    They have a stealth assassin type. They have a ranger type. And they have a bard type.

    Rogues right now imo seem to have the most flexibility between specs they can choose. They are just missing a good healing spec.

    Doesn;t mean they are overpowered or anything, just means they just have a large draw.

    Based on total posts/threads it is about 35% of total class posts/threads, when ideally it should be 25%, not bad but still probably will be the most popular class.

    Rogues can do everything.
    They can heal.
    They can tank.
    They can melee dps.
    They can ranged dps.

    Rogues are the most popular class because they have the classic ranger souls, rogue souls, and they even have support and tank souls.

    Best ranged dps souls? Rogue

    Best ranged aoe/debuff/support souls? Rogue

    Stealth and gank? Rogue

    Second huge nerf to warlord best tank soul now? Rogue

    Rogues are also the most outspoken QQers when it comes to other classes dps. Warriors are equal or better than us at times please nerf etc. We also get to hear the ZOMG! I stunned this guy for a couple secs and he healzed up yo and I couldn't kill them before the stun wore off!

    Yes I have a rogue among other classes and yes they are fotm and overpopulated in game. People will gravitate to classes with good souls and rogues have them in spades compared to the others. It's Trion's problem not ours we just play the game.
