I am in shock that the NE Males are done..

The current models are horrific and I've made jokes about how unforgivably ugly they've been in the past... but the new models looked good enough that I went and made a druid on live in anticipation - I think they look great on beta.

I don't necessarily think my opinion should matter as much as someone who plays one for their main as far as judging likeness goes, but as someone who wouldn't have touched one before they totally fixed the old model's issues. I can't make fun of them for being ugly anymore, I think they look great.

He looks amazing in beta and the PTR. Subjective opinions are just that.


Very much agreed.

I think what the OP is seeing is a first pass that was implemented as a test, and will, through iteration, be fixed in subsequent patch releases as we get closer to the launch date.


I promise you, we're all hoping you are right. I would be over the moon to be able to come back here in a few weeks and admit that I overreacted and was worried about nothing. It's just, that launch date is getting pretty damn close.
OP,

Why would you assume Blizzard would go to Reddit for feed-back on graphics, when they post front page topics specific for that feed-back?

I've seen at least one thread with a blue response, you can go find it since you claim there has been zero response.

The feed-back threads you cited are less than a month old, and the PTR has been up less than that to allow all players to experience the new models/animations and provide comments.

Do you want them to tweak the designs every day and roll-out daily PTR updates, or actually let them review feed-back and make adjustments based on something substantial?

Reddit was one link. I listed many other links too. I was showing a broader picture. Don't cherry pick ONE LINK to suit your argument.

I've seen at least one thread with a blue response, you can go find it since you claim there has been zero response.


Then link me. Don't bring it up then not link it or back it up. I haven't seen any blue response that these current NE models are temporary.

The feed-back threads you cited are less than a month old, and the PTR has been up less than that to allow all players to experience the new models/animations and provide comments.


Of course, I even mentioned that the new models for NE males were released a month ago. Of course the feedback is inside of a month!

What worries me is no artcraft. By now, and certainly by the beta, previous models had an artcraft by now if they appeared on the beta. Maybe thats a good thing, who knows?

You care about downvotes on a wow forum? Go for a run, or read a book, and come back and complain if the models are that messed up at launch.

I think you've had enough, sir.


Wow, you completely miss my point, and then downgrade my post where I give constructive feedback? Only on the internet.

You have posted a thread geared to generate Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD). The thread title is a complete fabrication on your part with not basis in fact at all.

This is in no way "constructive criticism", rather it's a troll post to try and rile people up that these are the final models - this is why you're getting down votes, this is why I down voted you.

Could be worse. You could state a factual truth, like I did, and get down voted.

I figured that was more due to a time constraint seeing how close the expansion is getting but it is odd they didn't get one. Maybe they figured now that the PTR is available everyone can see for themselves first-hand instead of through screenshots and previews.

These forums are very opinionated... not everyone is going to agree with your opinion. It doesn't mean they're trolls.

Maybe, also one thing I noticed about the pictures on the artcrafts is that some? (I don't know how many exactly) of the races look very different now than how they were projected to look on the blog

Do you even have a clue how many people on the internet have complained about "migraine headache" casting? Google it, its astonishing.


I Googled "migraine headache casting". Apparently you haven't.

Boohoo it's only -2

Your first mistake is caring about the rating. It doesn't mean a shat unless you got mass downvoted into oblivion and post buried.

Ever since they enabled the up/down number to public, people take a tiny downvote too seriously.

It's funny and sad at same time.

Oh, you're right, by adding "wow" to the search parameters (which he didn't say to google, btw) you got ALL THEM 4 RESULTS!

EDIT: One of which is THIS thread, and another is not on this topic. LOL

I have always known Blizzard as having a seal of quality with everything they produce.


You mean like the WC3 protagonists' believable and well-plotted fall to villainy in TBC?
I sometimes wonder if I'm the only person who likes the male night elf headache casting animation.

Male NE arcane mages are awesome, especially when they used mirror images.

It's not that I think it's such a cool animation so much as I think it's a hilarious one. I'll be sad to see it go away.

I don't mind it at all. It's much more preferable to the worgen male's "juggling my two IQ digits" casting animation.
