    Poll: I'd Like All Character Models to be ready come WoD, you?

    We all know the Art team is working diligently on the character models, and Blizzard has said they hope for a fall launch. After reading this morning that:
    "There is no guarantee that all character models will be done by release, but they hope to have most ready."

    I would much rather Blizz push the release of the game back to have all ready rather than patch in the last models a few months later. The only reason I feel this way is because of the potential this expansion has to be super fresh and epic. New expansions are a big deal for WoW, and I want to be as deeply immersed as humanly possible. I don't see this as a possibility if I roll a new model Orc and still see old models lingering around. Aesthetics play a HUGE part of this game. I know everyone has an opinion, whats yours?

    As much as I would love new models, I'd rather have the expansion sooner with a few models that are complete. Release the rest slowly in patches.

    So you much rather have over a year of no content just to have all the models ready? Fuck that.
    You fucking what mate?

    No thanks. I wouldn't care if only one of them was done. I'd rather have the expansion. The new models are nice and all but they will be entertaining for about a day.

    hate to burst your bubble dude but some people do not give a flying F about new content. The PvP and new character leveling community is rather gigantic

    I don't care one way or another. As long as the expansion is good and there is a lot to do because models/animations are all well and good, but content is the most important thing.

    I just don't care about character models. I just wish they didn't do it. I don't like having to update my pc every expansion to play at high quality settings.

    the content of the expansion is more needed than the models, so postponing just so everyone can ahve their new models at the same time would be pointless, as end of they day it is the content people want the expansions for and new models aren't content that will give you something new to do.

    I dunno. It would probably cost us a raid tier to have the models at launch.

    Y'know. The models they advertised the game as having. In the preorder.

    I think at this point they're hard targetting a specific launch date like Sept 23th/30th, so some stuff will have to come post launch

    Like someone else said in another thread, it's an opportunity to make more money off race change revenue. Some players will pay to change to a new model once in 6.0, and then again in 6.1 when Blood Elves or whatever is missing is coming out. I doubt Blizzard intends to delay just for that though, just the way it shakes out.

    I get a rather small minority of people don't care about new content but this is a MMO, and MMOs survive on new content.
    You just can't have the wishes of some group of people that hinders everyone else.

    Oh god please no. Actual content please. New models are nice, but not as important as something to do!

    We have been 'waiting' for the new models for ten years, we can wait a bit longer. Waiting more than a year for actual reasons to play the game because of those models? No thanks.
    English is not my first language, feel free to correct any mistake I may make.

    You must hate expansions in general. If tech gets better, you'll need a better computer to play at high settings. It's an understood side effect.

    OT: Would I like it? Yes. Would I rather wait for the expansion to ensure the models are done? Yes. Will I be disappointed if they're not? Yes, considering they've got very little new stuff in the expansion coming and the new models was pretty much the only noticable change pre-100. Will I complain if they're not? Nope. They'll come shortly after if they're not ready by the expansion, I'm not that worried.

    Jesus, talk about touchy for a person that asked for others' opinion.

    Ironically, both of those communities you mentioned benefit tremendously from new content. Nothing like a new expansion to level through.

    This.

    Of course I want the models to be ready for WoD launch, but to postpone all of WoD just for, let's say 2-5 models? I'd rather wait for the models rather than have that extra long wait for the expansion, even if it sucks not to have all models at WoD launch.

    How silly of us to assume there's something to do in the game. You don't need new content to do things. There's plenty of stuff in game.

    I don't think it's a matter of immersion, but honestly it'd be silly if they delay one race/gender and have it feel like it's a decade behind the times; then finally get a revamp and have everyone feel slighted that it somehow looks better/worse/subjective-bullshit.

    On the other hand, If I had to choose between an incomplete array of revamps or a raid tier, I'd probably take the raid tier.

    Where was the selection for, "Just get it done for launch?!"
