    They always told me I would miss my family... but I never miss from close range.

    Me too. Amongst all the screwups, they did the art well.

    This is right up my alley

    With all the drama Blizzcon caused this year all the other panels got so forgotten and unappreciated at the show like the art and animation panels which I found very insightful and inspiring as a former wannabe animator graduate.

    When it comes to their level design and art styles in their game, Blizzard always do a good job.

    This statement is exactly the problem with entitled the players of WoW.

    As someone who has worked as a game designer/developer as well as a programmer I can assure you that the art team can not simple shift to the team that balances classes as easily as you can switch from flipping burgers to making fries at your job.

    Now leave the art team the F%&K alone!

    I hardly see what's that important to show us in a special live honestly because the incoming patch don't have any special 3d asset but why not ?

    I'm totally fine if they suck each others dicks like the story live stream, these guys did a great job and they deserve it unlike the story team.

    The art of making the worst expansion ever after a really good one ?

    The dirty Alliance home city, the ugly prison complex dungeon...

    The art has been nothing like the splendors of Legion.

    Blizz needs to wrap up BFA and move on.

    I love their art streams. The last one they did with Penny Arcade and Arnold Tsang from the Overwatch team was great.

    The two things I'm interested in are:

    When are they going to fix the new nelf models to finally make them look decent and as enhancements of the original model, not that abomination it is now
    See

    Why do nelves have worgen casting animations, like the rezz animation? It makes me die inside everytime I see it. If I wanted to play a dog I would have chosen worgen as a race, but I didn't. Why do they copy paste animations between races? It kinda destroys the feel of the racial identity for me.

    Pretty much this. Still I hate patting yourself on the back when the game is sinking.

    Art team is the only one consistently doing fantastic job on the game, good for them to get some time in the spotlight. Hopefully people will not lash out on them because of the poor state of the game itself.
