    Which new model do you think could come out wrong?

    Not saying that blizzard is bad at what they do, but sometimes during a reboot things don't go as planned. I think that dwarfs won't go over well. Specifically male dwarfs. I think that the beards will come out wrong. (Dem beards be important) Also, the undead. I hope they go for a design that doesn't involve bones popping out of armor. -_-'

    If they give Night Elves a newer model so it looks like Sylvanas or Alexstraza/Ysera, I'm totally doing a race change. :P

    I don't think any will come out wrong.

    I don't really get it. Why are you convincing yourself already that something "won't go over well"? What do you base that on? Nobody hasn't seen anything of any new models yet.

    I'm worried the most about female Tauren. If the clone-face of female Worgen and Pandaren are anything to go off of, I'm a bit scared they'll end up being Bambi's girlfriend clones rather than individual Tauren women. Going for the cute furry girl factor instead of like proper Minotaurs. Plus same face syndrome.

    Not saying I don't like the female Pandaren, they're very well designed, but they all look the same. I'd be sad to see Tauren meet that fate. Please prove me wrong, Blizz!

    So yeah, that's my biggest concern.

    Whatever they do I just want hair and facial hair to not clip through helms/shoulders/cloaks etc when it clearly isn't appropriate.

    I don't think any will come out "wrong". Some will come out with a MAJOR change and the QQers will jump on that boat right away.

    Hope for the best, be prepared for the worst >.>

    Though its in my guts that they focused very well on this one and it'll be amazing.

    My money is on Blizzard screwing up Night Elf female. It always seems like there is a vocal portion of the community that think the current model is too "manly" and want their proportions to be closer to your stereotypical Tolkien elves, despite the fact that they were envisioned as a race of savage amazons. I expect Blizz will take that feedback to heart and just churn out another pretty elf race.

    Its blizzard, experience has thought us that most of it is bound to be shit.

    Honestly, I'm half inclined to lean on the side of clipping - there are some helms that remove your hair / dwarfs beard that really ruin the look of a character because of it.

    I'm most worried about forsaken, but that's purely because nearly all of my characters are that - i just hope they manage to preserve the feel of the old forsaken model / hair and face choices, while upgrading the poly count to make them look less blocky - as long as my character looks like a higher quality version of my current customisation choices, I'm fine,

    One thing's for sure if Garrosh's model is a red herring - not the Orcs. But if I had to think of which one could come out the worst, I'd say Draenei (if they are even doing BC races. If not, then Undead).

    I believe they gonna do a good work, till now all the new models of the npcs end up being great in my opinion, Thrall (Orc), Ysera (Night Elf), Nozdormu (High Elf), Vol'jin (Troll), all of them, maybe because they are simple, nothing of shinny and brilliant armors with colored light and smoke, but, who knows.

    So, when you ask me "Which new model do you think could come out wrong?" my response is "the models of the new armors and weapons" no doubt ¬¬

    Sylvanas used to be a High Elf, not a Night Elf

    Forsaken will be problematic. Not sure how they will tackle the ripped armor look they have now.

    Honestly, Humans or elves... night elves are supposed to be lean, lithe and speedy.. but tyrande alex yesera and sylvanas are kinda sporting the knockers. Humans because well, they need to look real, but still cartoony

    They're pretty faithful to the current orc animatios with Garrosh's rig so I'm not worried about that, but I am just the tiniest bit worried they might give trolls batty ears like Vol'jin and the Zandalari have. I like the batty ears well enough but I don't want them on my characters, personally. :c

    They all could come out wrong.
    They could all come out right.

    we can only wait and see, I just hope that they put the human females on a bit of diet when the new models come out.
