    2nd pic is amazing

    Something like that on such a large scale would be absolutely immersive. Its very picturesque and has the old Org/Durotar color scheme, which I liked a lot more than the bastardized version.

    I really can't wait for the day when MMOs actually look like this. It will happen, but it's taking so frigging long.

    People need to start upgrading their PCs quicker so Blizzard and other developers can upgrade their MMOs to the latest standard.
    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    "What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"

    "All of them at once," said Bilbo.

    First two maybe.

    The third.... that looks like "computer on fire" graphics.
    Permanently unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    Been a fun run guys, but the game's officially moved into the "Milk the Playerbase" phase. And I for one don't intend to stick around as the cost of expansions go up, content in them goes down, and raids become further and further apart.

    To have WoW as WoW, I would have to choose number 1. However if it was a single player game I would have picked number 3. Number 2 is really ugly to be a game, looks more like it would fit as some kind of Warhammer type figurine game.

    That first one is absolutely epic. Undead used to be my favorite race until they changed all the Undead architecture. I loved how they used old abandoned human structures. Once they switched i moved my toons over to Tauren.

    Incredible that this remark was made by a super moderator...

    MMORPG's with these kind of graphs and ... 100 people in one place can be played with ... 2 frames per second.

    Too lazy to explain, but next time inform yourself...

    It is telling everything though about the lack of knowledge on game programming ...

    Sigh...

    He just said they were available in video games today and would love to see them in wow.. He didn't state they were possible in an MMO...

    Also, is he a video game developer? I didn't realize the mod's of this fan site were all video game developers...

    I liked numbers one and two.

    I chose two because of the idea that I'm in a fantasy world, seeing Orgrimmar that large compared to individual people really shows me that I'm inside a world.

    i would cry cause i couldnt play wow anymore cause my pc wouldnt be able to handle that kind of graphics

    I like 1 and 2 the best as well. Who knows, that could be possible in the near future, I think it has mostly to do with spectacular lighting to achieve that.

    First one all the way.

    Second picture makes me bias because bright lighting like that hurts my eyes. I have troubles hanging out in Orgrimmar as it and making it brighter would make me hate the place even more.

    One, I've played video games on my computer with graphics close to this detail at well above 2fps. World of Warcraft is sadly a very old engine that lacks of a lot of optimization that has been implemented in newer engines over the past decade since it was first released with Warcraft III. I have games I play today that are considerably more detailed that use less resources from both the CPU and GPU than WoW does. Even with more people in place...they're just models in the environment that only has be to be rendered once.

    Two, I never said I was a video game designer. I'm a business software engineer, not a game designer. I won't pretend I know everything, but most of the basics of development are the same, just the output is different.

    All 3 of those scenes are possible in with a new engine for World of Warcraft. The unfortunate side effect would be losing a lot of players who have machines that aren't capable of it.

    That's about all you got too. :P

    But yeah, it'd be nice, but I'd definitely have to get a better machine.

    Pic 1 for me because that is closest to how it is now. This one captures wow best for me. It gives the vibe it should have and this is how wow would look as a single player game (made now not 10 years ago)

    The 2nd pic would be an intro for a RTS.

    And the 3rd one is for those high grafic games (those big names that everybody loves and everybody hates)

    Weather's quality is so important guys... I have never thought this until now. Atmosphere really gives half of the like.

    So I'm sharing you different kind of arts, but everyone maintains the actual "cartoonish" graphic, just in a different styles.
    Under which art-style would you like to play?

    Here the graphic is focused on the density of the atmosphere, just look at the sky and the wet ground. It would be awesome to adventure under this atmosphere. (really faithful to the actual WoW, looks like just an improvement)


    In front of this majestic Orgrimmar, we can notice how much the use of light is relevant here, as-well as the depths of the environment. A kind of epic art that should be breathtaking to play on.


    The extremely detailed objects are amazing, probably exaggerated for a video-game. Here every detail, the weather too, is incredible, just perfect. Is it too much?


    So in which of these 3 Worlds of Warcraft would you like to fall? Enjoy!
    That.------

    I do like the grand scale of pic 2 because when I do quests I like to think that each item or each person I save is actually more people because going into the middle of a war and killing 5 enemies doesn't make much sense. Pic #1 is my favorite though. It looks like WoW with better graphics. I don't think my PC could handle better graphics though.
