    Is that even from the same game? O_o
    It's as funny as the mental image I made when I first saw Stockton's pic.

    Seriously, it is a big deal. Any time I saw frog I was shocked at how... wtf the model was. Where was the face in that? The game did really need this.

    People often underestimate the power of animations. Yes, old frog has like 4 polygons, but simple, yet well-done animations make it feel like frog. Even if it was just green square, you could instantly tell it's a frog when it jumps around... like a frog. Same thing goes to bunnies in WoW, if you look picture of them, they look like crumbled cardboard shooting target but when you see it scratch itself and washing it's TINY FURRY NOSE :333 even filthy casual can identify it as a bunny.

    These subtle changes when added over time will make the game a lot nicer to look at. That old model is just terrible. I'm sure many people are looking forward to new character models. When watching some of the cut scenes in pandaria with the old orc model mixed with new ones it just looks weird..

    Because an artist(s) can't have a side project to do in his/her/their own time to put in the game?

    That frog couldn't have taken all that long to produce, it's still a tiny model. We're not talking about redoing a race here.

    On the subject of Artist workloads, I wonder if they're already starting to work on simple models (plants, rocks, maybe some buildings) for next expansion....

    I dare to say that not even the rigging team QA that, but a programming tech might have checked if the new mesh was acting properly with the old frog skeleton. That frog can be done in half-a-day, being the texture the most challenging part.

    It's awesome, I hope Blizzard will make more and more new models for old "minecraft-like-models"(I mean models which are outdated, like this frog). :-)

    Players really want new character models.

    Better make new frog models!

    :-) I never realized how awful the old one was. Good too see that they are fixing up some of the things that are truly outrageou-

    I mean outdated.

    doesn't make it worse. doesn't make it complaining. too often people hide behind group consensus and fear from believing otherwise.

    redoing the model of the frog also takes immensely less time than the players.

    Player models are in the work at least we know that

    No real point in pointing this out to people who don't get the whole impressionistic art style. You're supposed to look at it from a distance because it's kind of neat how your mind fills in the details. Some people are just too literal in their thinking maybe, or maybe a night with me could change their minds, with high heels and a pink bow in my beard.

    Plenty of it is complaining, straight up unreasonable whining that is presented as fact. All the post said you responded to was people will complain. For all you know they were talking about the obvious bitching this community is notorious for. You want to defend that kind of whining? You already seem to be, so I'll just leave you to that. As if this community has a problem with too many people praising Blizzard, lol.
