    How is this relevant to this discussion? You are making conclusions based on incomplete material.

    I can tell you.

    before they brought up the new talents many people said.. we do not want this.. and some people like you do said "Noo worry guys it's Beta and Only PTR the things will change to release yust wait". They released it and there was no way back. The Chance that Blizzard revokes mistakes is extreme low, they do it.. and mostly they do not change anything after a release.

    Yea, but that's stepping away from the Warcraft art style and tbh doesn't fit gnomes at all.

    Still not following how it is relevant to this discussion. You're saying that blizzard has made a mistake with these models but that is incorrect. The changes might be problematic for you, but they are only so because of your uninformed opinion. You haven't seen all the faces yet, you haven't seen the finished gnome female model even. You have seen one model preview. ONE. Not enough information has been gathered to construct an informed opinion about what they should change.

    The meaning is with that example. If we yust wait till release and it has been gone wrong, the chance that they change something on the models is LOW! So better a discussion before they release it.

    Go ahead and ignore the rest of my post detailing just that. I will just copy+paste it so that it might actually go through.

    I think the main issue is that facial expressions are no longer a matter of gluing a texture on a face. In the new models, facial expressions are generated by the model and skeleton. Every gnome female is probably going to have the same set of animations regardless of which face they pick, and that includes the smile. Using textures, they can make it a devious smile, or a sad smile, or any number of permutations on the theme of a smile, but removing the smile means modifying the skeleton for every face, which I think they're not likely to do.

I've heard the line that the old 'face 1' is supposed to be smiling, but that's irrelevant even if true. The eye colors are off as well. Here's a comparison, maybe it will help:
    Here is the direct comparison. I guess the main difference is that the new model smiles.

    They have only shown one of the numerous faces that they will launch with. This isn't a case of "Yeah but before they've promised something and not delivered on it", this is the faces of characters were talking about, they will not launch with only one facial option, to believe they would is insanely stupid.

    Prefer blizzards more cartoony look than to add realistic eyes/mouth etc.

    I'm aware of that, but like I said, if that is meant to be the same face, then they obviously failed to adhere to their design philosophy there.

    You photo-shopped a stock mouth onto a gnome, added some dark highlights to the eyes and applied a high exposure effect to her face, doesn't look much different and a little creepy, but hey, that's my opinion I guess.

    I like the look of the new gnomes, fits them more. I don't play gnomes though so I guess it doesn't really matter to me.

    They did it with the female Pandaren. Their "face options" are nothing more than eye colour and fur markings. Given that the new character models are supposedly to the same standard as the Pandaren, lack of proper face options is a legitimate concern.

    I repeat once more. They. Have. Not. Shown. Every. Face. Type. Yet.
    Waiting until a feature is finished before giving feedback is leaving it too late.
