Which races in the game do you consider to be the good and bad guys?

I know there are some obviously evil races like the Sluken but there are also some races where I am not really sure, like the Naxxilians who look more ruthless rather then outright evil.

Which races would you define as bad or good?

Bugs are evil, the humans and other humanoid races are good. Sounds a little racist to me, those poor bugs!!

Hmm i allways thought Humans are Evil, Bugs are neutral because a swarm don't know a moral.

But there are races in the game that are neither humanoid or bug.

Are you asking this because I said evil/good races care about bombarding differently?

Anyhow, I was thinking that it isn't a matter of the good/evil races which care about the diplomatic reputaion, I remember reading somewhere that it is the government types that care. So a democracy would care, whilst the military dictatorship would not care that you have been bombarding.

As for good/evil in the game philosophically, there is no good/evil.

Storywise, anything that isn't a bug/shakturi are the "bad guys", everybody else was seemingly in an alliance to prevent the shakturi from invading tha galaxy. Then again the "good guys" were developing and sent out biological weapons to wipe out the shakturi. And commonly, whether or not you are playing as a "good" or "evil" race, you would normally try to rule the galaxy by conquest.

My allies are the good guys.
My enemies are the bad guys.
They say so on space-future-state-owned TV stations.

That usually makes Naxxilian good guys, my alliances often hold for long with them.

Speaking of Naxxilian, I just turned them into a dominion in my game. When a race has been turned into a dominion can it break free later with force? And how likely is it to do so if it can?

The Naxxilian; how can they do anything with those tiny little arms? [:)]

I wondered about that as well. The Galacticpedia says their arms makes them powerful fighters, but I just laughed when I read that.

Naxxilians look much better, as do all the races, with the extended mod on. Like rock skinned lizard people

AS to evil I play extended mod and the Keskudions (?spelling) are giving me a nasty sense of foreboding in my current game with their "way of darkness" gov trait and massive military on my doorstep.

What is this extended mod you speak of and what does it do? I haven't checked out any mods for this game yet.

EDIT: Never mind I have checked out the mod's page. It looks interesting, I might check it out after my current game.




Plant -> RE: Which races are the "good" and "evil" ones? (12/6/2013 3:18:50 PM)

Personally I don't like the mod pictures. Mostly angry, ugly faces staring at you with oddly juxtaposed necks. The normal character faces are more characterful.




Shark7 -> RE: Which races are the "good" and "evil" ones? (12/6/2013 3:33:39 PM)

From my point of view....

The only good bug, is a dead bug. My fleets and troops have made a lot of good bugs during my games. [;)]




Plant -> RE: Which races are the "good" and "evil" ones? (12/6/2013 3:44:32 PM)

Oh Shark7, why are you so racist!

Unless he's a bug, no.




Plant -> RE: Which races are the "good" and "evil" ones? (12/7/2013 3:32:19 PM)

Well, if he is a bug, he must be a very self-loathing bug.

Actually, wouldn't 'speciesist' be more descriptive? [;)] I have no problems with other humans, its just bugs I don't like. [:D]
