    Alexstrasza looks like a random LOL character, not the WoW one

    anyone else gets bugged that Alexstrasza looks like a random league of legends bullshit character in HOTS and not like actual WoW character? I mean I don't even play HOTS but it bothers the shit out of me. I get it that they want to make characters "LoLish" to MOBA players so they see it and want to play it, but I mean cmon its their own fucking universe right there!

    Real Alexs:



    Random Female Cosplayer:

    The more important question is how did poor Alextrasza become so fat? Have she been eating too much recently or is it affect of sacrificing power of aspect?

    They talked about how they beef up the characters when they make them in HotS to make them more exaggerated and a better silhouette during the hero deep dive panel.

    Nah, no one else got bugged, just you. She looks fine, except for the fact that HOTS like bulks all of their characters by 1.5

    I for one like her more thicker. I think it fits better to represent her as a motherly figure, unlike the anorexic Blood Elf model.

    However I care about her very little as I think she is lame and annoying character at best.

    Other than her face looking a little odd in the cinematic trailer, she seems fine to me.

    I dont mind her being fat or thicc (as she seems to be a bit more), her face imo looks atrocious in the game.

    her looks was the main reason people wanted alexstrasza in hots,without her look she doesnt even matter

    im really dissapointed with her outfit,with that unnecesary censorship

    Honestly, her head looks weirdly huge.
    GC: Good news, everyone! We lowered the cooldown of Shield Wall to 5 sec and balanced assuming you hit it every 5 sec.

    Tanks: Um.... Thanks? Could you maybe just make it a passive at that point?

    GC: But hitting buttons is fun!

    I love the way she looks and can't wait to play her. Hope we get Deathwing at some point.

    I do agree with you. She does not look like herself. More of a botched cosplay put on fat girl who thinks herself 'brave' and 'fabulous'.

    The last thing I am is PC, but the amount of fat comments a videogame character has generated is hysterical, you lads need to get a grip

  14. #14
    I agree.

    It lost some of the wow essence. I will still like her, but I'm trully lacking a blood elf thin one. With pointy ears and all stuff

    They explained in HotS panel that they have to change proportions to fit the camera and silhouettes, guys.

    I understand they had to make her thicker or whatever("fat" is overstating things) cause of the engine, and I guess they gave her pants cause, uhh, reasons, but her face still just looks way off to me.

    her facial expression just looks more, like, bubbly and fun rather than matriarchal and wise

    not that you can't be all of those things, but she's certainly more known for the latter

    edit: ya'll think she's... f...fat?

    yikes

    Yeah...nothing says "wise matriarch" like a thong and fuck-me-boots.

    Mm her manly jaw really, REALLY annoys me actually. I can't even remotely enjoy her look, whereas in WoW she looks pretty damn awesome. Not so sure how they managed to mangle her so badly.

    In WoW she looks like a general blood elf. If you are into that - good for you, but i'm happy that she finally got some unique features
