    Good. I could care less about graphics and animations etc etc. I'd rather them focus and balancing pvp and fixing other gameplay issues.


    Blizzard only does crap like this because they want you to think they're improving the game when they're just changing pixels. Don't get fooled by their bells and whistles.

    Ever seen a male Orc AOE? It's absolutely tragic to see their arm literally disconnect from their body. Even 8+ years ago the shit should have been caught by QC.

    The new female troll model they had for the Thundering Isle area looked 10x better then they currently do. I am assuming the new orcs and humans will look about like what the MoP trailer had to offer. If so, the new models will be welcomed in my book. The old models do look a bit odd when compared to the new Worgen, Goblin and Panda models.

    I'm so waiting for the day when the "I'd rather have better gameplay than new character models" people realize that the art department and the gameplay departments are completely separate and have several sub departments.

    You sir, are totally right.

    Like everyone's said, the changes are purely cosmetic. Sure, they'll be nice when they're fully implemented -- but they shouldn't effect your overall satisfaction derived from the game too much, especially if you've been playing from close to the game's onset.

    Didn't you hear? This is 1985, and software companies are just five people working out of their Garage.

    Samwise and Metzen do all the art and write all the stories, served occasionally by Ghost crawler when he isn't single handedly balancing and creating all raid content (he, of course, does so while laughing maniacally,) then they turn it over to Zarhym who programs the entire game, and all of whom toil under the stoic, ferocious gaze of Morhaime, who sits on his throne of gold and skulls, clutching a replica frostmourne in his right hand, the helm of domination seated on his left leg.

    I think one area where new models would help is with with recruiting new players to the game.

    Having 10 year old low resolution textures on a very low poly count frame, together with extremely crude character animations and with a laughable amount of character customization is not the way to convince new players to join the game. New customers are the life blood of an mmo, without them the population can only get smaller as long time players leave.

    If this topic was a nail, you'd have just scored a headshot.
    A ton of current players want new models, and that makes the new player models important. But even if not one single existing player asked for them, new players would expect them. THAT is the key to WoW's success, is that it maintains that level of turnover, replacing it's losses as fast as (or faster than) they occur.

    Last game that I played which had major character model updates (Dark Age of Camelot), I ended up deleting several mid-to-high level characters because the new looks and animations were so alien to what I had been used to that I simply couldn't stand playing the character anymore. So I can see why Blizzard is very careful about making changes to try to avoid the whole "Well, they look a lot more detailed, but don't look anything like my character."

    They'd have to update every model all at once. Having only updated Humans and Orcs wouldn't make much sense, even if its patches at a time.

    Well, once we get new models, everyone will just complain how the old models were better and how they want them back and how WoW is dead.

I'm all for a huge customization for each race but not at the expense of quality.

    Yes they are a sneaky business and they are waiting for a good moment to release them. They also run on an insultingly low budget considering the trucks of money a sea of zombie fans ship them monthly.

    I'm sorry you've decided to stop playing the game for this, but honestly, try and find a game that offers as much as WoW does. To say that Blizzard is being lazy is unbelievable considering just how much content World of Warcraft has. The character models are coming. If you don't want to play until they release them fine, but don't call Blizzard lazy just because the 1 feature you want isn't given to you today.
