And look there's a Euro list too!!: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/12439455182

((Another good thread to check out, cataloging all the model threads on the board: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/14880668498 ))

Alright ya'll, as a recap, I'm re-posting the list from the original thread placed before;

((I'm also going to put in, if you like the new models, GREAT! We're not advocating them taking away the new faces and such, we're asking for more faces with these tweaks/suggestions to be added to make more customization and hopefully more faces closer to the originals. We don't want your new faces taken, we just want more faces that are truer to the originals added for more option choices.))

Here's a list of the major points brought out in many of the threads (and adding in some points:

General issues with most race models:
    -Strange and ungainly animation, usually in casting.
    -WEIRD running animation that causes strange skippy motion without running boosts/ect.
    -Hair is clipping and breaking through helms (it works for my hairstyle, but definitely not for others)
    -Cloaks are clipping badly with spines
    (In fact, cloaks themselves have seemed to gain sentience and are trying to fly off of us.)
    -Weapons and shields are clipping badly and cutting into body parts while on the back and in attack poses.
    -Older armor isn't fitting properly on many models, horrible rigging and stretching abound. ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/JjiZcHr.jpg / http://i.imgur.com/OYfVaUp.jpg ))*
    -*this has become especially bad in helms, note here: ex: http://i.imgur.com/pn7soZO.jpg ))
    -*it also appears you didn't test the eyepatches/ goggles and whatnot with the new faces: ex: http://i.imgur.com/7Tq2LeI.jpg ))
    -Many hairstyles have become flat and lifeless, as well as static as if made of steel, and look horribly messy ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/L4xpQ9p.png HAIR OF STEEL!))
    -Eye and nose shapes are all similar on many female (and some male) models, causing 'same face syndrome' (ex: http://i.imgur.com/6Bwgj6n.jpg ))
    -Eye GLOWS are vanishing or clipping through the face, way too bright or not there at all. ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/4oehF19.jpg ))
    -Suddenly a lot of us seem to need anger management with casting/riding/ect. What is everyone so angry at?!
    -Furthermore, in some animations some races are loosing their teeth! (orcs for one!)
    -Why did you change the sounds? Was it really necessary for the PCs? (I do understand some, but not all of them!)
    -Please open ALL customization options to the barbershop, such a drastic change should allow those of the non-fuzzy peoples to change their skin color at least!
    -Drafty Leg Syndrome has become as rampant as the Ebola virus for robe-users! ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/NR5hSeQ.png ))
    -Caster armory poses (especially for gnomes) look pissed off or farting. ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/oAFo73R.jpg ))
    -Iron boobs, our breathing is like....gone. I can understand in some plate pieces where that would make sense, but in most loose armor our breathing is apparent as well as our breasts moving with the motion of breathing.
    -There's an ugly texture stretching/repeating issue on digitgrade races' feet/boot items ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/aITy8Jk.jpg ))


Tauren Females:
    -Weird open mouths during idle ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/VsPiLzg.png))
    -Our spotted skins ripped off from male skin ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/NKKZNEO.png ))
    -Noses these weird half cut llama noses instead of full pads like old models ((ex: http://40.media.tumblr.com/6cdd1274fa251a6a04340b53fe63fe2e/tumblr_nart0g5vcN1r1t52lo1_500.png ))
    -Hair and eye colors randomly changed
    -Still odd jumping animation
    -Sitting down lifts our robes up revealing invisible legs/torso and floating feet (we got the 'Drafty Leg -Syndrome' from the Draenei males!!)
    -ONLY 4 faces!!
    -....Why do I look like I just rolled around in volcanic ash instead of having black fur?
    -Eyepatches on tauren females also have an additional problem.... they do not actually cover up the eye
    -Why did you take away the blue hair option? Just give it back, bug or not! ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/0Ei3psK.png ))


Tauren Males:
    -Nose is NOT in any form that of a cow, they at least have their mouths closed
    -Only 5 faces!! Is it so hard to add some faces with full nose pads to the new ones?
    -Strange kind of prancing-stomp run
    -Seriously, what's up with the coat colors being oddly changed to different shades?


Gnome Females:
    -Suddenly all of them are angry or look psychotic, especially during casting animations (grumpy cats!) (ex: http://i.imgur.com/AqJxIeh.jpg ))
    -Odd widows peak appearing in at least 6 hairstyles, which do not fit together!
    -Still having some bug-eyed issues on some faces, as well as bags. Are these gnomes getting sleep? ((ex: http://www.nerfnow.com/comic/1402 They're making COMICS about this issue now!))


Gnome Males:
    -Patchy, loose, almost glued on hair
    -Suddenly all look like angry psychopaths like their female counterparts, both sexes need some cheerful faces with the angry and sad/neutrals!
    -Weird kind of prancy...duck waddle...motion when running. (anyone ever see a duck skip?)


Troll Females:
    -Only 6 faces, and only 1 that doesn't look constipated/angry! (and some still think that one looks mad!) ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/bK7k4wS.png ))
    -Weird waddling running animation
    -Feet flopping even worse than before!


Toll Males:
    -Loosing their hair in random patches! ((ex: http://tinyurl.com/p742hel ))
    -Weird floppy feet while running
    -Feet are also breaking out of skirt/robes/dresses during running
    -Flex emote causes face to collapse into itself
    -Set face emotions range from stoned - angry - no flucks to give ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/ZrwnEn9.png ))
    -Along with weird feet issues, running looks odd and ungainly

    -Sheathed 1-handed weapons are in a totally new position than from before and look odd against the body ((Ex: http://i.imgur.com/Wxaqijq.png / http://imgur.com/YWXIFXy ))
    -Lower legs are being eaten by thighs when sitting down! ((ex: http://i.imgur.com/6yN9TZk.png ))
    -Face has been oddly tilted upwards. ((ex: http://imgur.com/VPITQb0 / http://i.imgur.com/GzZvrlI.png ))

    -Odd over-exaggerated bobbing of the head causing a dancing peacock-ish like strut.
    -Flat hair color
    -They still have a color seam on the back of their neck.

    -Heads/faces too fat. Looks like something was dropped on them, and squished their head down some, and mucked up their neck.

    -Seem to have anger management issues with flying...and other things....
    -Having clipping issues with some hairstyles and tentacles
    -Pornostache option, but loss of beard in some facial designs, probably should be set up separately


Undead Males:

    -Unable to access empty eye-sockets option anymore
    -Suddenly turned into spring-heels Jack for running animation
    -Polygon deformation when you look at where the leg and hip join up when running

Orc Females:
    -Have a weird motion to their hips, making them look as if they're trying not to poop themselves.

((If you see anything else that should be added, don't be afraid to speak up!))
--------

Now remember, this is a list of suggestions/feedbacks that many people have pointed out as things that need to be fixed or tweaked. This is not a place of total bashing and hatred, we're here to give constructive criticism, and as stated before, are looking for a compromise. If you like the new models, GREAT! I'm glad you do, but there's some of us who feel that Blizzard missed the mark and want faces with these tweaks and suggestions added, as well as glaring glitches and animation issues dealt with.

So give your feelings, and try to have fun, even in the mass of all of this.

And, if you like the models, feel free to also comment! Positive feedback helps just as much as negative!

Yes, I have seen, they were regularly posted in the Female tauren model thread Dawnsky ran in Beta, and I loved ALL of them! I also like that odile one, I wouldn't choose it for my face, but it gives a nice matching kind of angry face for the tauren females. Would look great for a DK taureness actually now tht I think about it. That arch on the eyes would go great with the glow to give an angry glowing stare and stern mouth.

Oh or a really pissed off warrior, those are fun to make look angry too.

And Blizz can't tell me they can't do faces with nosepads. It's utter bullocks since they did it with Pandaren varied faces.

On another note, I haven't heard much on this one, but it bugged me: Anyone else notice on taurens we DIDN'T get any jewelry or feathers or well, jack-!@#$e? Cause in the presented one at Artcraft they had one with feathers in his hair.

And damnit I want feathers and turquoise!!!

If they finally put in new hairstyles, one with feathers in it's hair would be nice. Or maybe a small side braid with a few small feathers or beads

And I would for sure get the angry Tauren face on at least one of my DKs

I started wearing helmets that cover my face on my femtaurs because the new faces are so unappealing. On characters that have face covering helmets, that is

I mean I'd wear helmets every once in a while before, but now it will be all the time
Posting here to show my support. I pretty much said everything I wanted to say in the previous threads, so I'll just say that I hope Blizzard takes time to address these issues/bugs.

I know there's probably not any budget left this year for models, so I doubt anything will be done, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Could you add this to the Female Orc section? :D

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/14872147099

A thread I made on the PTR before the patch which explains a bug involving one of the faces (my favorite one, #9) and one of the skin colors (my favorite skin color, #5) causing the face to turn into another face (#1). They really need to fix that. :/
These may have been noted but here goes:

Male troll- some now have wrinkly spotty faces. I don't mind that on the cheeks but mine isn't a chain smoker so what's with his lips?
Male orc- lost the very shadowed eye option for a face, had great red-brown eyes that are also no longer available. And why did they suddenly get pock marks on their noses? Random
Female draenei- stomping/slogging look when running ( player pov)

I wish I were home so I could post examples. Hopefully others can better explain if they are seeing the same issues...
We have harelips now. It also happens to reveal our upper teeth.

I mean, Eremurus is an intelligent individual, but not a geeky scientist. And our arms have a weird animation when jumping... but that's all I really can gripe about. The rest is nice.

Poor female Draenei, though. Completely ruined.
To be honest, I always thought my Fem Night Elf ran like a line-backer. I don't really mind that... but, I haven't really looked at the new model running, so maybe this is something different.
...really, the new rigging seems to have made my shorties run better (Gnome and Dwarf) but there's still the overall goofiness where everyone seems to skip a bit.

Something else I noticed... my Dwarf Paladin wore stumpy boots, and I'm finding that the look is really too tapered now. I did a comparison of the old and new models in this thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/13816121548#1
...and I think that narrow calf/foot thing is real, and part of what is giving the new dwarf females such a football shape. Their proportions were absolutely better before.

Also Thank you so much for doing this, Makki <3 It means so much to me to see this much support raised.
Ditto this. Absolutely.
Someone mentioned in the previous thread Blizzard might be enabling skin change through barbershop.

Anyone knows if this is true?

*drawing with her finger*....Huh, you're right, it is a strange football shape, it's kinda making her body seem more bowed out in the middle...*looks at male* You're probably right, the cankles are more apparent in the males which makes them look more like an arrow shape, especially with their stance which makes a point at the top of the head and then lines downward in a kind of light bow but doesn't come back in at the bottom. The female dwarf is having this problem and I think to our eye it's causing her to squish abit.

Overall I do like the dwarf female's body, its the same face syndrome that's driving me nuts, also, were you originally a happy face in classic cause you look absolutely PISSED in the armory.

Lemme go check it for myself first, if the bug is still in play I'll put it up. That's not cool if it's still there.

Edit: OKAY You have made your point, however, that's not face number 1....that's not even a listed FACE!
This face for the particular combo has Number 1's eyes (which number 9 has blue eyes, these are amber/brown), but Number 1's face has somewhat sucked in cheeks, where as this one has the number 9's round cheeks. This is a totally new face only accessed through this combo!!

Also, something else, why is it that orc females have their eyebrows in the right places but human girls can't get theirs in the right place? Is it the rigging seriously?

I hope so, it's only fair in terms of changes....though I'd still be miffed about the choices I had, especially with the faces to 'choose from'. Changing skintone might help, but they STILL have no black skin....*huffs*

OH! and did anyone check the interview yesterday? Or is it today? *can't ever keep up* did they say anything over model concerns and whatnot....?

Yeah it's been a general complaint of all male characters since new models were on the Beta. I think they are trying to add those 30 years that have passed in game all at once. I would understand some cracks near the tusks but some of the faces went a bit crazy with the lip wrinkles. I've got the smoothest face available and I still look old. And grumpy. And like I use the hooka too much.

On a lighter note tho my armory finally chaaaanged. My hair no longer blends seamlessly into the red horde background.

Male troll- some now have wrinkly spotty faces. I don't mind that on the cheeks but mine isn't a chain smoker so what's with his lips?


Yeah it's been a general complaint of all male characters since new models were on the Beta. I think they are trying to add those 30 years that have passed in game all at once.

I don't know why they couldn't have added aged tusks too. We tauren have a 'broken' option, it would make sense your warriors with their charges would a some point get their tusks snapped off, infact anyone in combat could get them broken off....

Also, I told you guys to stop using the weed, but nuuuuu, don't listen to the herbalist cows.....

These may have been noted but here goes:

Male troll- some now have wrinkly spotty faces. I don't mind that on the cheeks but mine isn't a chain smoker so what's with his lips?
Male orc- lost the very shadowed eye option for a face, had great red-brown eyes that are also no longer available. And why did they suddenly get pock marks on their noses? Random
Female draenei- stomping/slogging look when running ( player pov)

I wish I were home so I could post examples. Hopefully others can better explain if they are seeing the same issues...


Wait......Red-eyed orc face is gone?! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZVP6jWRTfA
Just finished watching the twitch interview on 6.0. The vod hasn't been posted to youtube yet, but one of the final questions was if the new models are done and what is the status on blood elves.

Their response was basically that they are watching for player feedback on the new models and will possibly be fixing concerns in the form of more customization options rather than directly changing what we have now since the face one person hates someone else loves.

I wish there had been more questions about the new models, but hey it's something! I'll post the vod when wowhead uploads it.
Really great summary of the problems. Why oh why did they rush all the models out at once. We would have been happy to wait to get better quality!
