    Your selective reading missed 'as much as it can'. Keep complaining though. No one cares. I hope they personally remove polygons from your character in order to make mine higher. Sorta like the creation myth of a rib from Adam to make Eve, only this time it's from someone complaining to cause drama to someone who appreciates being thrown a bone (PUN INTENDED).

    That's why you don't care. That's not why "we" don't care.

Mostly out of boredom, but even so, I think a lot of people underestimate how much they actually see their characters.
    I do this a lot, too. There's always a time when you're standing around, waiting, doing nothing.

    Im pretty sure the excitement is around the new animations.

    You must be blind. They look much better to me. Hears hoping the animations are that much better as well! (especially the running ones)

    I understand that some people don't care much about the looks and movement of their characters, but why do some of you feel the need to take away the enjoyment from those who do care?

    Also I play the game zoomed into first person so player models mean pretty much nothing, and I play with my eyes closed so NPC models don't really affect me at all either.

    I should try that. I always see my character as something getting in the way of the real action!

    Models are meh. So much time and resources spent on something that offers so little to gameplay.

    The models in GW2, SWTOR, Rift, D3, Tera all blow wow's away. but the gameplay is either = or meh.

    Models just spice things up but offer no gameplay value. Think of all the other things they could possibly spend that time and money on instead of something that isn't going to effect the gameplay.

    so stupid.

They'll not see it all the time, as they're fighting a lot, but don't you ever turn around the camera and look at your character for a bit, especially when you get new armor or when you're bored?
    Yes I look at my character if I'm waiting for que or whatever. I transmog all my gear and never wear my helm. But in all honesty how much is it really gonna change? Great, the new female humans has abs and kneecaps. Cant see them anyways with a bp and pants on. New face? Sure looks nice but you have to zoom in pretty damn close to see the features. How long do you guys sit and stare at your avatar at that close of a distance anyways? Do you play the game that way? If you do, how do you do how the hell do you see anything going on around you?

    Rift has possibly the clunkiest models and animations I've ever experienced, SWTOR too. GW2 has smooth and fluid models however.

    I think from a marketing point, that the game is not dead or dying, it will be a better draw to new players if the aesthetics are better.
    Besides I'd rather have my RP characters look better as I do see them up close often.

    In your opinion, it's not worth it. No more, no less.
    Your opinion, however, luckily doesn't necessarily reflect everyone's opinion.

    Not everyone zooms out. I have helmets and cloaks hidden on every character i have, I would hide tabards if i could.

    Graphics do matter.

    I always have 'show helm' unchecked or am wearing a headpiece that shows my full head so for people like me the new models will be very noticeable even with gear.

    Because the people making the new models could totally have made like a million super awesome raids and dungeons and they could have perfectly balanced pvp and removed cash shop and brought back vanilla wow servers and made epics epic again and made warlock and shaman tanks and made a bunch of new classes and new races.
    But suuuure, if you want updated models go right ahead and rob everyone else of all these awesome things that would totally have happened if it wasn't for models!

    Blizzard literally cannot win with people like the OP.
    Men, you've trained for this. You're among the elite. You are Skyfire men! This is the ship that took down Deathwing. You think some raggedy little Horde outpost stands a chance against the pride of the Alliance fleet? NO! Those green dirtbags down there plagued your homes in Southshore, laid siege to your children in Redridge, and massacred every man, woman and child in Theramore. It. Is. PAYBACK TIME!

    Your comments really make you sound like the most obtuse and dull person of all time. Barely different? Do you even have eyes? Do you even look at anything? And is it in some way sexually arousing to be miserable and a party pooper? Some people are just ... brrr.
