We had enough races before the Pandaren. Now we have one too many. They should NOT add any more.

Didn't Blizzard say in one of their interviews that after they made the Pandarian that they felt neutral races were too much of a pain and weren't likely to do them again?
No more new races. We don't need anymore really, we're spoiled for choice in that regard. What are we not spoiled for? Character customization and player model quality. Before they even think of adding new races they need to bring the customization level of characters to the level of competitor MMO's. The standard MMO allows you to customize the body type, choose from a wide array of hair styles and generally make your character more or less unique in a small crowd and less unique in larger crowds.
The age of the game and the engine is not an excuse. They've transformed and engineered the game wonderfully over the years, compared to what they've done so far with an ancient engine and what we're asking for here isn't very much at all in the long run.
We've got a ton of races in game with neglected stories, outdated visuals and with each new race they add those ones getting love seems far less likely with each expansion released.
Also sub races. Give us sub races.
1 for ally and 1 for horde, i play both sides

First of all I don't believe Blizzard follows a trend of adding set in stone number of things when building an expansion. They will add new classes and new races if they feel the game needs at the time if it fits expansion theme.
I too much rathar see updated models than new races.

I'll take playable neutral Ethereals plus remodeled races.
Why Ethereals? Because they've got a solid leader (Nexus-Prince Haramad), a base in Netherstorm, cool backstory, aren't furry, and pose no problems with mounts. Oh, and they're cool.
(PS: I love Ethereals.)
I play both sides, so one race for the Alliance and one race for the Horde. Preferably High Elves and Ogres. Although I really wouldn't mind seeing Naga with legs a'la heroic Ragnaros; I recall seeing a picture of the sorts once, of night elves who weren't completely transformed into Naga and fighting against Azshara (although this last part I'm not clear on, this was a long time ago when I saw the thread the picture was in). I feel that's the only way we'll get playable Naga - and yes, I've heard the argument about armor wrapping around their torsos and side-saddles for their mounts, but still.
On new models, I'd rather Blizzard take their time on them. Being partially done, I don't expect to see them being doled out in the upcoming expansion. And I would welcome sub-race selections in character creations - i.e. Mag'har for orcs, Dark Iron and Wildhammer for dwarves, taunka for tauren, etc).

Hopefully no new races or classes. Last thing we need.
how bout new models for the ones we have instead of trying to waste time and resources on new ones... If the old ones got revamped we would not need new ones or want new ones.
