So Whitemane can have hers, but not Alexstrasza?

Hero and Skin Suggestions
Blizzard, why do you have double standards when it comes to lore appearances and skanky outfits?
Cause Alex is a waifu that must be protected and Whitemane is just a hoe

alexstraza has her cannon outfit(well outside cloak not beign see through),just her body shape is very different.
Because Blizzard can't always produce female characters with a beautiful body. Otherwise someone will be offended. Truly, in real life it is impossible to keep yourself in good shape...is it ?
If you played WoW, you see that they put Whitemane in her original skin from the game like....what...12 years ago? It would be irritating for Blizz to take a well known character and put them into some different outfit.
It's probably just that they didn't want to repeat the "outrage" from Alex, so they went the other way with Sally.

In other words, it's not "double standards", but rather they "changed their standards".

Of course, there are some complaints that Whitemane is "oversexualized" (which is probably the kind of "controversy" they were trying to avoid by changing Alex), so they might posibly change their mind again for the next one, seeing how this aproach didn't please the comunity either. (Of course, it's downright impossible to "please the comunity", since parts of it want contradicting things, the outfit wars being just one example)

They can make them skimpy as long as it's what they are, but someitmes, they may have to be censored. Unfortunately, not everyone will ever be satisfied.
i didnt like how hots censored alex but im happy with whitemane so i cant complain,really happy to see whitemane in her famous outfit
Of course, we need more censorship. It is desirable to just close all the characters in black square, just to not offend anyone.
Because Alex's "original" model was just a sylvanas recolor lol

censorship


LMFAO what is wrong with HotS players??? It's not cencorship for a studio to change its own design to stop being a reskin of another character, jesus christ.
Cencorship is a government body with a monopoly on violence using it to force its subjects not to express certain things, so unless bobby kotick had a cop in his office with a gun to his head when this decision was made, it's really inappropriate to keep using that word just because you can't stand a woman who looks like normal ppl do IRL

So what ? How does this affect the fact that Alexstrasza HOTS needs to look like she looks?No one asks you to make Alexstrasza recolor of Sylvanas , please make a model similar to the canonical.

The concept is determined by time. Nowadays, censorship is exactly what we are talking about. Secondly, Alextraza should not look like a real woman. Because it does not turn into a human, but a bloody elf. If Blizzard wants to introduce the hero "housewife", let them give her such a model, but in relation to the bloody elf is not appropriate.
8ish months later and people are still butthurt about this.

Let it go. Crying about it changes nothing.
Things could change if they talked about it even more. Of course you can not do anything , but it will lead to the same problems in the future. One day we'll get a remodel for alextraza , not today , but tomorrow.

Not at all.

Comparing whitemane and alexstrasza should've been a hint for everyone: alexstrasza was a design choice and not censoring or "evil sjws" ot any such nonsense. This is supported with skins like succubus kerrigan, dreadlord jaina and star princess li ming. Blizz hasnt shied away from the more sexy skins/models. There is no problem to be fixed.

And replacing alexstraszas model will not happen. They simply aren't going to do that to a finished hero, especially when they have cash shop exclusive skins for her.

There was a lot a clamoring for a Arthas remodels(though I never really cared) and blizzard hasn’t done anything. I imagine the same for Alex, also what’s wrong with a thic girl? She’s not necessarily non sexualized, she’s still got the midriff.

Also I’m not taking an SJW stance before anyone says that. I’m strongly opposed to censorship and plenty of others things they demand.
Which outfit are you talking about?

Isnt her Dark Queen outfit for this?

Design solution ? Yeah, let's pretend that's how the designer sees this character and forget that this character has to look different. The task of the designer is not to create a new character , but to successfully recreate an existing one.

Artas's model is outdated, but it's not critical, it's still the same Artas. Such things are corrected over time. And I have nothing against thick girls. That's just Alexstrasza supposed to look like a blood elf , and not as thick. And it is critical.

Should be same for alexstraza.

they can have it like diablo though, a skin option where she looks more like blood elf and how she is susposed to look and is described to be.
then who liek current got it, adn who want where she looks like belf can have it aswell.
