    I'm GLAD Blizzard are taking their time with character models.

    Especially after this...

    And this...

    And ofcourse all of THESE



    All of those models (And quite a few more) are the work of blizzard, i think they had more problems than just a little 'eye blink' like they said in that interview today...

    And they made it look like the players were b*tching about minor details ?
    Well as I've said before: so unfinished. you can't really say they invested a great deal of work in these.

    Looks more like they were goofing around and accidentally released these "improvements".

    They should take their time, but they shouldn't take "forever" though
    Add Alpha female worgen as an option ^^!

    It was actually a test to see how people would react, as you can imagen they reacted poorly.

    What worries me is that they said since Pandas were cross faction they were able to give them extra attention and quality.

    This makes me feel like 4 (6) races will be what? Not as detailed?

    Hehe..if it is true what they say on the frontpage that people discussed EYEBLINKS for ages on the human model...no wonder they take their time.

    I think they meant lore-wise, for example in TBC they focused more on the blood elves story than the draenei, giving them more screen time, and again in cata with the goblins getting more time than the worgen.

    whoa whoa slow down. Blizz is a company, not a government

    and yes I am glad they are taking their time as well, or should I say being thorough. I want my toons to look like better rendered and articulated versions of the same toons. I do want more options though, hair styles, hair colours, eye glows, jewelry are things that can enhance the look.

    Personally they shouldn't spend any money on something people only look at for 5 minutes out of 100's of game play hours.

    You know changing a Character Model isn't just about money?

    Creating a new race is way more difficult than updating an existing one.
    When they create a race they have to make a background story, a starting area, music, new models, ...
    A lot of art work and discussion is needed.

    Updating the new models is just looking at the old ones, trying to imrpove the animation.
    Sure they are rebuilding them from the ground but they're not spending time creating all this other stuff that comes with a new race.

    (think about the architectural style, druid forms, jokes, animations, voices, music, faction, race/class combo's,...)

    it's not just about money, but it's a driving force. the more money you throw at a project the faster it will complete up to a certain point.

    The community has mostly all said that new models are important enough to warrant updating, so they should use the new models as a primary point in a new expac

    You are. Read the original statement. They soecifically state the quality of the model.

    people look at their character 100% of the time they are playing the game actually.

    What might not be important to you, might be important to others.
    I know people who never read quests, never listen to wow's music and chose a race based on racials.

    Does this mean blizzard should just stop working on quest text, new music and new races? NO

    A lot of peope like an immersive gaming world with cool characters and armour.
    If you look at the mod websites for skyrimes you can find a sh*tload of graphic mods.

    The old races aren't being "updated". They are being re-created from the ground up. As a matter of fact, they stated it is EXTRA difficult to do this while maintaining the 'feel' of the old ones.
