CAN'T STOP "Display new models"

Technical Support
Have "unticked" display new models and they won't turn off. It's lagging out my pc, giving me a headache and there's no reason why it shouldn't work when it did yesterday.....anyone have any suggestions?
Earlier today when I could play I noticed this too. I'm pretty sure it's just a patch day bug. I think they have got a lot of other issues to worry about right now so that is probably down there on the list. I just wish I could log in :(
I know, sorry Coyotyl, i'd be peeved if I couldn't log in too. You're right, it's not a big deal but I can't play, even though I can log in, because the new models cause me motion sickness (run and mount movement animation) and it's made my wow so laggy I can barely move. So i'm kinda in the same boat as you but they'll fix the log in bug long before they even notice new models can't be turned off.
A friend of mine said that with this patch they made changes to the old models to make them similar to the new ones. He tried both now and said besides for the graphics looking sharper on the new models they are the same now.. Super lame but I guess this is intended.. Sorry! :( I like the old models/animations much better too.
Great. So they've locked you into something without choice. Who cares if it makes you sick and you can't play. I have no choice. I have to unsub.
I didn't like the new models either so I've had them disabled for the past few years. On patch day I noticed they were reenabled. I thought I'd give them another chance; after a couple of days I decided I still don't like tham, but unticking the option box doesn't change them back.

I really hope this is a bug and not intended.

I'm with you here, I think it's very shady that they did this and didn't leave the option for us.

I really don't like the new models at all now we're forced.
I've read through the thread in the beta forums. It's heartrending.

I might be able to get by with appearance changing potions and that, but in the end I may have to race change. The original concept of the night elf as a wiry jungle elf / tarzan is lost.

Edit: the body frame looks much the same, but the proportions and animations make a world of difference -- the male now looks chunky despite his triangular torso. His run is comical -- it makes him look round-shouldered and duck-footed compared to the original.
There are related threads in the general discussion forum. We're not alone, several other players are unhappy with this change.
