    Asura - WTF?

    Even though all my friends keep telling me about how awesome GW2 is going to be, I have to facepalm everytime I see a screenshot of an Asura...

    It has to be the most ugly, stupid-looking race I've ever seen in any game I've ever played.

    As much as I would like to join my friends in GW2 I just can't get over it....

    By ugly, do you mean drop dead sexy? I got a camera close-up with my beta Asura last night and was able to see the jaw/teeth models as well as the eyeball models through the character skin. Shit was so cute and savage looking.

    I agree with OP, asuras are quite disgusting same as all other "funny" races, gnomes, goblins, pandas, you name it. But it's not the reason to feel this way. Not yet. I mean.. They're not pandas, right

    >> No need to start bashing WoW for introducing Pandaren. The bane of any game's community is the immature crowd that makes said game look bad by making fun of another.

    Imo just play another class and zoom out as far as possible while playing, so you don't have to see their model ^^

    I beg to differ, but to each their own.

    Considering they came from underground, I think they look pretty good. A lot of their physical attributes cater well to the story of their origins. Whether or not they are aesthetically pleasing to you is purely subjective... And there are plenty people that will enjoy playing them because of how they look. Sorry that they look so terrible to you that it impedes on your ability to enjoy the game.

    Im going to be honest, I dislike most of the GW races.

    Charr I feel look rediculous in large heavy armour when they run and they are too feral to seem convincing enough.

    Asura as you said are kind of ugly little things, doesnt make me proud to gear one up.

    Sylvari I actually quite like, a few of the combos look fugly but the plant / human hybrid is nice.

    Norn / Human They are more or less the exact same, cept norn's are more bulky and dont really live upto their shapeshifter name.

    Ill probably end up playing Sylvari or Humans tbh.

    Thats not to say I dont like the game, its amazing, just the races leave a bit to be desired in my opinion.
