    This has always been an issue with weapon textures. The more surface area a weapon has, the more stretched its textures look. They're already using the maximum texture resolutions allowed by the engine (currently), but the same limits are in place for weapons regardless of type.

    Though they also tend to look worse in the model viewers than in-game. The texture scaling in the game looks a quite a bit smoother.

    Doesn't matter. Since Blizzard banned a Pro Hearthstone player for speaking out against China and took his winnings away, I have deleted all ATVI games and apps from my computer. Blizzard banned this Hong Kong Ayer fir supporting Freedom. They have chosen tyranny over freedom. #BoycottBlizzarf

    Sure thing, but be sure to spread that to all the other companies that are doing business in China. If you want to give up your phone and all your games and movies and fast food, donate your money to charity, more power to you.

    Would loved to have played for some of this loot but as you've allowed me a route to protest China as a non-Hong Kong person I guess I won't be

    Are those companies actively supressing some one and removed their livelyhood along with taking back the money they won?

    Those are some FUGLY weapons.
    Their inconsistency in weapon skins is weird. They hit home runs like the Legion artifact skins, and then go back to this poo.

    And you think every other company you're a customer of has done nothing of the same severity if not worse? If you want to go on a moral crusade then the only way is to hop off the grid and live in the woods.

    O well? China is a Commy state. By shouting support HK and keep going, your just telling the freedom fighters to keep disrupting their government and way of life. The western world would not take kindly to a group rioting for commi rights. (I know there's more factors but come on, they fought for that government style the the same way the west fought for democracy, agree to be different geez)

    Let them figure out their own house and we do ours. It's just a game man, and that dude had a contract with rules about this stuff and he violated it.

    One of the ugliest weapons I've seen in the raid.

    Someone should photoshop googly Cookie Monster style eyes on these weps and then put them everywhere.

    Legion Artifacts were allowed to be their own thing and did not need to follow a strict theme.

    China is an authoritarian one party state. The ideals of Communism were washed away by the tsunami of wealth that flowed into China once they opened up.

    Whilst I enjoy the monster designs, I can't say I'm a fan of the Old God designs on gear. Too many eyes, tentacles and not-at-all cool art decisions being made.

    Bring back class inspired sets! It's clear as day that the creative juices won't flow properly when design comes down purely to raid themes. It needs the class theme worked in!

    Case in point: Compare Antorus Mythic Hunter tier to the Mythic EP mail set.

    I will go in order:

    R1, 1. The dagger looks really boring
    R1, 2. I like the sword. It will look better in game.
    R1, 3. That shield is going to be dope! I want it!
    R1, 4. The mace/off hand looks forgettable.
    R1, 5. The "lantern" eyeball cage is so cooooool!

    R2, 1. The scepter/staff looks nice
    R2, 2. The axe looks ok but I do not like the green color, or the blue-ish hue of the metal.
    R2, 3. The spear looks nice but a bit generic.
    R2, 4. Big fan of the toothy hammer. Kind of wish it had an eye on it though.
    R2, 5. The axe looks like it has caged the Eye of Sauron. Big fan.

    R3, 1. This sword is my jam. It looks liek a creepy creature has infested my sword like a crab would a shell!
    R3, 2. Very cool axe, love the fin-shaped pommel.
    R3, 3. This dagger is a cool design. I love how it looks like an octopus has enveloped the blade.
    R3, 4. Sea creature bow? Heck yea!
    R3, 5. The dagger with teh eye is nice looking but it does not wow me.

    R4, 1. That is a nice hammer. I would enjoy bashing N'Zoth over the head with it!
    R4, 2. The gun is ok... I like the idea but the colors do not work for me.
    R4, 3. Glaive is nice but forgettable.
    R4, 4. I feel like the mace would be creepier in game than in the picture.
    R4, 5. The claw is ok but nothing special.
