    Oh my god leave ancients alone...

    Is it not enough that you've ruined druid forms by sticking leather bracers and necklaces on the animal forms?

    Is it not enough how much you've spit on Warcraft with the latest expansion?

    Night Elf Ancients' models are derived straight out of Warcraft 3, the greatest cumulative effort of Blizzard's artists until the end of pre-BC when the Blizzard core split into 10 million different companies.

    Night Elven Ancients look great and they remind us all of better times in Warcraft, the new models look like something I would do in Maya 3 years ago when I had no idea how to do 3D modelling and I was still struggling with nurbs and vertexes.

    Please for the love of god leave the Ancients with their current forms, at the most update their textures but don't give us the crap I'm seeing on the MMO C front page right now, IT DOES NOT LOOK IN ANY WAY BETTER.

    It's just a pet. If you don't like its model, don't use/collect it.

    Why do I want to know you stopped reading there? That's like reading the title of my novel, attending my convention, and telling me "I did not read your novel".

    Why am I supposed to care?

    I like the new models! Even if its just for a pet, I hope they give them to resto druids in form of a glyph or something, because I love a bit of variety, the old treant form, I often hoped they would customise, so that in summer it would fully bloom, and in winter it might have some snow on the branches etc, one of the reasons I love being a Druid is for all the forms, so hopefully these new skins are something they will implement eventually for the player to use|

    When posting your opinion on an online forum, it's awfully hypocritical and ironic to complain about others posting their opinion in response. If you didn't want people commenting on your first two unrelated, opinionated questions, you shouldn't have put them there.

    It's not your MMO. O.o

    On topic, they looked like pet models from the moment I glanced at them. They're certainly very chibi-looking. I would never expect them to replace the ancients models with those.

    If you think you could do better, they always seem to be hiring.

    edit: They look pretty close to their intended original, so I'm not sure what you're expecting:

    Well, that would certainly explain why I didn't know what you were talking about. My bad.

    Blizz response right here-



    Forreal though, the ancients are badass. Would love to see them in game.

    "I ate a cheeseburger today and it tasted great because I hate animals.

    I hate animals because each of my family members was slaughtered by a different animal in their lifetime."

    -------------------

    Imagine now you quote only my first phrase. Would that be a response to my opinion? No, because my argument is made of 2 major ideas. You have to respond to the entire argument to answer my *opinion* or view.

    You can't just take the word "cheeseburger" and answer "I like cheeseburgers". That's called trolling. It's actually REAL trolling. Not what people pass off as trolling today just because you write a different opinion than theirs.

    Also, hypocrisy and irony are not mutually inclusive, you might want to brush up on your definitions before you fall off your high Tyrannosaurus.

    Then why are we supposed to care about your complaining?

    They're fine, it's merely pets, and you don't see the ancients anywhere except for Darnassus anyways. No big deal.

    They actually look more like the linked image than the ones we have now. Of course, the top-down style of WC means the proportions get skewed, so the top-heavy style looks appropriate, but it's probably not the actual intended scale.

    Also, way to flip out over nothing. New models are always nice to have, Blizz has stated they don't plan on totally removing old models with new ones in the past (as was first suspected when the new Gryphon/Wyvern models were found, Blizz said they'd keep the old ones that were already in-use), and they're just Ancients. They're kind of boring, really.

    Oh god. You're one of 'those' people, aren't you? The type of person who foams and spews at the thought of MoP being canon lore and hate how Wow 'has been ruined' from the last few expansions? Good grief.

    Pure idiocy.

    The models you see on the front page are "pet versions". Notice that when something becomes a pet, often time they get "shrunk and cute-ified"? Short body, stubby limbs, enormous eyes. Its how pets have been going in recent years, nothing new. Nothing is ruining your precious out of date, crappy pixelated Ancients that look no different from their RTS Models.
