    As I said above, I have been swayed a little toward your side here, but this is plain wrong. Everywhere on Twitter and even on the Official Blog Post its labeled as an Update, not a teaser. I am fine with them going at there own pace, but perhaps instead of announcing updates for Character Models they should have announced a Teaser for a New Character Model.

    they literally dont have to show us anything. peeks are exactly that, they are peeks.

    you expected them to dump their entire work in your lap so that you could give some arbitrary stamp of approval, then forget about it tomorrow.
    I don't expect them to dump everything, never have, if I did I would have expected zone updates here too..... I expected Character Model Updates, not one T character model. Like I said above though, I am a bit more optimistic since they called this a series and said there was more on the way.

    I should say below: I don't think the god damned Sky is Falling, I just think, in my opinion, this was very underwhelming for what they were trying to say they were going to reveal.

    Honestly, I wish during an expansions life they would add a month longer between the major tier patches instead of all this dead time at the end of an expansion. Either way MoP was so alt-unfriendly I don't mind the extra time to get all my characters in a good spot for the start of WoD and prep my little one for a 90 boost.

    Yep. The tweets made it seem like we could expect more than just one model (and people will disagree, as proven before, but I quite frankly don't care to argue it over with them anymore) and now quite a large amount of people are disappointed with waiting 3 weeks (after initial announcement) for one model. They could've saved those people that are now facepalming a lot of time and hype by just saying "we're gonna show/reveal one new model". Wouldn't have been too hard.

    They've shown us pretty good progress on Orc male, Tauren male, Undead male, dwarf male, Gnome male, Gnome female, dwarf female, undead female, and now human female.

    That's about half already.

    This, and I feel the need to emphasize here, because I keep getting yelled at. I am not going to quit, I am not going to go on a Sky is Falling Rant, but no matter how you spin it, they made this sound like much more than it was.... which to be a bit fair, is sort of the point of hype, but that still doesn't make this alright. I am also done posting at this point, I have other things I need to do anyway.

    It will only become a priority if they can figure out how to charge extra for it.

    Thats why I don't get too hyped up for things, I felt this was a appropriate reveal and they are kinda telling us that they will be updating with us about the models like every week... so that's cool.

    Is what they delivered underwhelming considering the hype they gave it? Yes. It does not, however, show any sort of insight as to how far along any feature, including the models, are in a grand scheme of things.

    Publishing models in a presentable way to the public =/= actual progress on character models or any other feature.

    I hope at the very least the Vanilla races are done and dusted for WoD. I don't want to be on my Troll looking like something from 2004 and having my friend on his Orc looking all shiny.

    I haven't and won't change my mind on it either, but neither will I go on a 'WoW is dying' tirade. I am just disappointed. I still like the model, I still like all the models we've gotten up until now. I just waited 3 weeks, expecting a rather big update, only to get a human female teaser, and that disappoints me. The human could've been ungodly awesome, and I still would have been disappointed, so it has nothing to do with the human female model itself. In the end, it's typical marketing and how a business functions. I may not like it (I obviously don't), but it's how it goes. Doesn't mean my opinion on the tweets implying an update that was bigger than what we got is changed, though.

    Yeah that will really negatively affect my gameplay to see the same model I've been seeing. I can't imagine playing with old models, it's blasphemy.

    Edit: Wow, I never realized people spent so much time looking at their character. These model changes will be nigh unnoticable once you have armor on. What's the big deal with model changes? I just don't understand.

    TBH.. i think every model is "DONE", just some tweaking before showing so crywaves wont spread to much. community has gotten so picky and cryish about everything. and what they DONT want to do is sit on forums giving reason why X model has Y thing bla bla bla

    And its blizzard we're talking about.. they tease more than a proffesional lapdancer.. its just how they do it.

    Um they have a lot of work to do and once they finish the content which is MUCH more important than making a character look pretty they can put more time into the characters, they will have a release soon enough.

    So this is probably a good time to go "hey lets let blizzard take their time to finish a quality expansion instead of bitching that its taking so long & making them rush and fudge the whole thing up"

    But seriously just because they released 1 model, doesn't mean that its the only one they have updated, they could have completed some already and just haven't released it, this thread is pointless no one knows anything yet

    you see the thing about the "big reveal" we've been waiting for is actually, WHEN THEY RELEASE THE XPAC!! anything up until that time is a preview. they literally have to show us nothing, but as you've pointed out its a marketing technique to keep us excited. its obvious to me that you don't think before you rant and rage about things you clearly have no understanding of, and if you think they revealed even half of what they actually have done (including raid art etc) your sadly mistaken.

    you do realize they are changing animations also?? so the way your character runs will look different with armor on, thats the big fucking deal.

    I'm sure they have more done and could show us more, but they'll do that slowly over time.

    Enough people are already shitting down Blizzard's throat for everything they've shown us so far. How keen do you think they are to show anything that isn't 100% complete?

    This character reveal proves as much about the WoD release date as it does about when Titan will be released.
