I would LOVE the alpha style worgen females. They looked like they belonged in WoW. Yes they were animesque, but they fit. The current worgen... those abominations do not fit. Maybe in some more realistic game where the worgen are instead non-playable villains, but not as a playable race in world of warcraft.
A simple change that can improve the female worgen:
The majority of WoW players cried out for a change in the female Worgen appearance as soon as they changed it from the alpha appearance to the beta appearance. People HATED the bloodshot eyes and snarl after the initial design.
Yet no matter how much players begged for Blizzard to revert the changes back to the alpha model, their pleas fell on deaf ears. These will, too.
(Though we still hope they'll change the female Worgen model. I went back to Night Elf because I could NOT stand their appearance.)

Even though this is old, I might as well post it again. It combines many of the arguments in one image. You guys can post it around if you want, just make sure you credit me (either call me Rachel or hitsujifox).
Anyways, the females were supposed to have eyeglow, but according to a friend who went to this past Blizzcon there was a lack of communication between the 2D artists and the modellers. There should be constant communication between those two teams.
IMHO, and not trollin here....
It's because its an alliance race in THE HORDE xpac. Yes, ill slightly agree that WotLK was the Alliance xpac as technically speacking in lore ICC didn't exisit for the horde.
But, this is just a simple extention of the fact the alliance is very low on the totem pole for blizzard. I wasn;t surprised to see the worgen models got the shaft and a half and the goblins where awesome. Since mid wotlk, its been a screwjob and a half directed at the alliance. I don't see that changing in the near future. If/when they redo the models.....i'm sure thrall will have half a million pixels for his beard and the king will get 6 for his face. As Metzen's ego won't allow for anything else.
DISCLOSURE: I play both factons.
Rel on Economics: "I'd wager most AH transaction are buy to flip sales. In fact most of the gold made is fake transactions to drive prices higher. Kinda like the whole financial collapse 2009...just saying..."
yes it's well known that Alliance players are expected to pay twice as much for half the Blizz love and that every player who has only horde toons across all the realms gets a free month of play time each year.
Thank you for your post Rachel, it nicely sums up what I feel is wrong with the female worgen. Even though I leveled one to see their starter zone I can't stand looking at it's face as it just makes me think of http://chickswithstevebuscemeyes.tumblr.com/ and that my worgen has some sort of brain swelling with that brow over hanging everything.
Wow thank you rachel, that about sums it up for the females!
It's a nice thought, but at this point it's highly unlikely. If they're going to touch up anything, it'll be the heinously outdated vanilla models.
That, and you don't even really get black or white fur options—just charcoal-gray or silver-gray.2. Give the males more fur colors. 5 is less than even tauren.
Hell to the yes.3. Match the human forms better to the worgen form. Tie fur color to human hair color in the same way druid forms are.
I'd say "revert to the alpha and refine." The alpha model could have used work (a proper ruff instead of the incongruous wig-hair). The trouble is that the revamp went in entirely the wrong direction: Jessica Rabbit + Goofy (with '80s glam-rocker hair that's no closer to a proper ruff, and inescapable at that).4. The females, where to begin.... I feel the best solution would be to revert them to their alpha model, which was superior in quality, customization, and (in my opinion) intangibles such as aesthetics and character.
Failing that, at least make their eyes glow like the males, in addition to mane/hair color customizations.
Also: OH HAI, Roulette!
The alpha female worgen model was a great start. My only problem with it was that it was too... generic I guess. It was just a wolf girl, not a worgen. But it is MUCH better than the derpchihuahua we have now. Refine the alpha, give it the trademark worgen canines, and give it a scruff or mane instead of wigs, maybe even thicken the body a bit, and it would've been perfect. It had a proud, classy look the derpchihuahua doesn't have. It looked intelligent, and it was beautiful (real wolves are beautiful in my opinion, so I've no problem with the female worgen being beautiful), but it was still capable of looking vicious in battle.
And anyone who says the alpha model looked like a fox or feline, and that the current model resembles a wolf better needs to be smacked with a National Geographic magazine. Several times.

Yep. (And for anyone who doesn't believe it? See also: Rachel's chart.)And anyone who says the alpha model looked like a fox or feline, and that the current model resembles a wolf better needs to be smacked with a National Geographic magazine. Several times.
Are you the same Seyna who's a rogue at the awful forums? Hi there!Edit: By the way, new person here. Hi!
Really, my greatest, GREATEST issue with the derpchihuahua was that shortly before Cata was released, Blizzard told us that the female worgen were unfinished. No changes, none that I noticed, where added to them when Cata went live. So, we all payed for an expansion where the new races were the biggest feature, with one of the race/gender combos being unfinished.
I do believe Blizzard owes it to us to fix them up.
Also, I played with WoW Model Viewer, and my alpha ended up with the same wary face. Yay! XD Guess I like yellow-eyed worgen, as all my males have the same face.

I play a female worgen and don't think they need polished up. I love them as they are
IMO, they just need to fix the stout on the female worgen and the eyes. The eyes are really whats terrible about female worgen. Too much cartoon, not enough ferocious. IMO, alpha eyes with live would fix it.
