Yea, unless you spend money you’re just assigned a random skin of either gender. Which is going to be the majority of the population. Which feels much more inclusive to female players (i would imagine); the New Yorker article above mentioned this as well.
Playing on iPad feels way better because there is no voice. On PS4, last few times i tried, it really was all 13 year olds. I did get a bro group once. You can get around this i guess by playing the solo mode, but the game defaults to putting you in teams.
