    Well they are always telling us they have limited resource and have to prioritise what they do. So his points fair enough.

    Didn't you know? They actually all stop work on what they're doing just to watch the artist make the frog.
    Can we really blame them? Who wouldn't want to watch the creation of such an awesome looking frog.

    Today I watched episode 3 of the TV series Dinosaur Revolution and there were these huge froggers called Beelzebufo or "devil frog" and today I see updated frog models for wow. It has been a froggy day!

    Can we have a Beelzebufo WoW mount now, Blizz?

    I like how instead of making it look like a generic earth frog they gave it some fantasy flair. It looks fantastic, they should update the Hare model next.

    They changed the snake model too? When? Is there a picture?

    See what irritates me is that they said they're only using the model for new frog pets rather than going back and updating all frog models in the game. Whats the point in making the model if its not effecting existing frogs?

    I hope the frog models are solid enough that they can be scaled up and used as actual monsters. Maybe something new for hunters to tame.

    which is interesting, because murlocs evolved from gorlocs, which seems to indicate that on WoW, fishes evolved from frogs, not the other way around lol
    Brann Bronzebeard's journal from the official Warcraft magazine speculated that murlocs descended from a frog Ancient, so it might well be the case.

    Also worth noting that in WC3 and beta WoW, murlocs looked more like walking tadpoles than fish.

    Actually, neither of them look like frogs. Frogs have very long hind legs (they're jumpers), while toads have them more balanced (they're walkers).
    Both WoW models are closer to toads than frogs.

    I disagree... I wouldn't be surprised that this is just some testing for Blizzard. What if we add a new model for a single critter, what kind of impact will it have on game performance, since the new model probably has a gigher polycount etc.
    Then they might try a few critters at once to see what happens to performance, and then perhaps the character models....

    Dunno if it's true, but could imagine such a thing...

    no, gorlocs descended from the frog ancient. murlocs evolved from gorlocs. murlocks are fish. in WC3 and wow beta they looked even more like fish:





    now look at this deep sea murloc:



    isn't he a fish man?

    not to mention, the jinyu, fish people from pandaria, are murlocs who evolved with the waters of the valley of eternal blossoms.



    see? fish.

    I'm tired of all this confusion.

    gorlocs are frogs! murlocs are fish! naga are snakes!
