I enjoy playing CoH ranked games, but apparently I always get assigned a random race. Is there a way to select which faction I want to play with?

Race? You mean you want to be an Aryan rather than those damn Yanks? – ChaosPandion Sep 9 '10 at 19:28
Sorry, I don't know what it is called like in CoH, I've been a WC3 player for ages and everybody always called it "race". – mafu Sep 9 '10 at 19:35
A "race" because it's a fantasy game, in real life based combat games they are called factions. – Cristina Sep 9 '10 at 19:36
Thanks :) I'm not a native English speaker so I didn't know. – mafu Sep 9 '10 at 19:42
@mafutrct - Sorry about that... I am not usually such a jerk. – ChaosPandion Sep 9 '10 at 20:03

Found it out myself by now. It is actually both possible and easy. Instead of hitting "Play" at the top of the screen, select "Multiplayer" - "Ranked game". This screen allows you to set up team settings (1vs1, 2vs2, AT, ...) as well as your faction and the possible maps. Now hit "Play" at the bottom right of the screen.
