    Without drawing the ire of the community (impossible) it seems like they are just aiming for '51% is good enough' on art and revamping.
    So redoing the entire old world is just not good enough I take it ? And adding new water effects and whatnot. What do you want ? A complete redo to make it shiny like AION perhaps ? And if they did, would it still be WoW ? WoW looks like WoW, and it shouldnt change too much from the original concept. How many other games do you see that do a complete revamp of ALL the graphic just because the PC´s can handle more today than they could 5 years ago ?

    The only game(s) im aware of that did this is the Monkey Island series, and while it IS cool to play it with the new graphics, I tend to actually switch to the old graphic because thats what I remember and one of the things I loved most about the old games. But this was done 20 years after the original release of Monkey Island, and while it was a big undertaking, its nothing compared to the tast it would be to redo WoW. And is it _really_ necessary to rede the whole thing just to get new people on board ? I really dont think so.

    One of the reasons they redid Monkey Island was to have an entire new generation enjoy these awesome games that we "old timers" played and loved when we were teens...But WoW is 5 years old...thats hardly enough time for a generation change.

    Unbelievable how more boring this game gets with every beta patch... omg. Glad I quit gaming some time ago, I thought that I would come back for cataclysm but this is all just very disappointing!!

    and regarding the artwork, in this case updating means "old as shit" because those artworks are on the web for ages now...

    wow.

    two of the most exciting things in a few weeks!

    dual spec cheaper (so now its actually an option before you hit 80 lol) and the theorycraft thing looks sweet. Now people who are interested in their character can actually figure things out without graphs and charts from EJ.

    Why? That's the WoW equivalent for demanding a refund on your car because the prices are lowered the year after you bought it.

    Also; See that bag on top of the servers in the third picture? That's filled with human fat, commonly used by Boub to lubricate the servers for smoother service.

    Personally i dislike the new Archimondes Vengence.

    Especially when trying to do the Shattered Staff Shards collection quest... all the white flowers makes it impossible to see the glowing staff shards.

    Also, the whole point of the crater was to signify the explosion caused by the wisps wasnt it?

    The new version is just retarded.

    I don't think the wisps caused that, no, since the crater's far from the Tree.

    I think Battle and Warcraft's servers would take a BIT more space, assuming one region's servers are at the same place and one realm needs multiple servers to operate :P

    I'm not being "snotty" or a "brat".

    I'm just pointing out how much better the old version was, in both gameplay and lore.

    I can guarantee you will be the first person to bitch when running around looking for the shattered staff pieces on launch if something doesnt change...

    It took me nearly an hour to find all 8 pieces with my eyeballs straining from their sockets.

    It's not that far away, you can even see the tree's root in the crater.

    Thanks to the reduced price of dual talent specs, mmochamp can now afford to upgrade their servers. gg moochamp gg.

    Is that a Boub-arm I see me on the first pic?

    Yet another step to make wow even easier, by making the dual spec cost only 100g. (Usually those who buy dual spec for their alt have the gold already from their main..)

    Probably wont be long until epic flying mount cost 100g. Why don't they just give us dual spec and mounts for free? Refund please!


    Awesome new servers btw.

    Back when TBC was coming out we had what 3-4 battlegroups? Blizzard bought just over 1k HP servers to upgrade the data centers so yes Wow is run by more than handful of servers. We have more battlegroups and 2 expansions later. There's hundreds per battlegroup for redundancy and processing power.

    That would realy great

    Cheers btw for the server change!

    There are more games besides WoW.

    Also love how Boub didn't cover the most important news we've had in a month (Gamescom 2010 Q&A).
