    While its a nice upgrade, i don't think its that big of a deal. I definitely don't think you can compare upgraded models to a new race or class being added.
    There is no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.

    Why do we care about how the outdated player model looks? The one thing on your screen 99% of the time?

    What would you rather them invest time in? More cash-shop mounts?

    Technically, there's 10 new Races worth of new models going into WoD. But it's true that there is a certain kind of "newness" that new races bring in terms of uniqueness and new lore, etc. However, I would have taken Vanilla/BC race model, texture and animation overhauls over 1-2 new races any day.

    I notice my Orc Male's face all the time and try to come up ways to cover it up.

    Being a player who has been in the game since early classic this is something I'm excited to see. I don't play zoomed all the way out unless I have to. I enjoy seeing my character as it is the body I use to interact with the rest of the game world. To see them being upgraded is a great feeling to me. Does every one feel the same? Of course not. Plenty of people feel just like the OP and just don't care. It's one of those things that some people like and others don't. It happens all the time. either way though it's happening so there is little point in arguing/ranting about it now.

    Onto the differences in look though? I think you're just upset they are putting resources into this rather then something else because I see a huge difference. I'm some one who tends to pay attention to every little detail so I tend to notice even subtle changes. This though? It's a massive difference in character structure and texture quality. I'm not going to call it top quality or anything because it's not. But compared to the old and still current models this is huge.

    Saying you could care less implies that you care to a level that it is possible to care less.

    Thanks for letting us know that you care.

    A better question is - why do people make these stupid topics, in which they are incapable of understanding why everyone else doesn't think the way they think?

    It's couldn't care less. Not could.

    Could suggests you could care less than you actually do.

    Are you serious? We just got the monk class, and it'd be better for them to balance the ones we already have instead of adding a new one. I'm sure most would agree that updating the existing races would be better than getting a new one.

    Seriously, YOU don't care so why even use "we" in the title...?

    OTHERS do care, and there are a million reasons. As many reasons as there are individuals playing. You don't understand why? Your loss, really. Others, like me, get great joy out of nice animations and our toons looking a certain way. It might even be as easy as people getting annoyed by toons in a 2014-and-still-going game still looking 2004.

    Each and every one of my toons has a fav transmog set of mine, they have names I put TONS of time into and they all have their "history" with the leveling experience behind them. Emotional attachment to toons might seem weird to people naming their toons Swagyolo and jumping between FOTM-classes (generally speaking) but I didn't join an mmo to be detached.

    As for people saying they would rather have had another class or new race...you've gotten your stuff for the past years, time to give the rest of us what we want. New classes and races get tiresome when the other old races keep having less polygons and worse animations than everything else around them.

    I don't care about the models.

    They did the models because the game is looking dated, and this is turning off potential new players who can compare graphics to that of other MMOs. New character models make these comparisons go slightly better for WoW.

    That's all there is to it. The new models are for "hey, our game looks like this" screenshots and slightly better impression during the first hours of play time.

    I don't care about the model. Only time I see my characters face is on my singnature on MMO-C

    I didn't care for a long time since I covered my guy in sweet looking armor that was up to date artwise anyway.

    However, I realized that updating the player race models will also update all of the NPCs that use them, making most of the NPCs in the game look sweet too. All that will help elevate the visual element of the game experience immensely.

    So yeah, I'm on board with them now. Do lady taurens next, Blizz!

    Well I for one actually play zoomed fairly close. (Not that were I'm at will have new models.)

    I think the best summary for this thread was "This is why we can't have nice things". People on MMORPG forum often question how Wow continues to keep such a huge playerbase, well it seems pretty clear it's because a lot of Wow players don't care how outdated their game is...

    Graphics are not the same thing as Aesthetics. Anyone that instantly claims that the Warcraft art style is inferior graphics completely misses the point.

    That doesn't change much, honestly. WoW does look very outdated compared to many - I'd say most - modern games for many, many, many people. Character models are going to help a bit with that (and even then there's a question of will they help enough? enough to justify the apparently enormous time costs? not sure, really...).
