    Can you please give some more information on this? I'd love some details.

    can't wait for people crying that they were banned for injecting unofficial character models

    Google "WoW Model Editing". I'm sure that post with links to OC will be deleted.

    That would be pretty stupid reason to ban.

    It's not that stupid when you consider the amount of cheating that can be achieved through assets replacement. IIRC a lot of things such as collisions, and possibly los checks are done only client side. Replace some static models and you can go through walls etc.

    Except you will get banned if you decide to change assets. It has happened before.

    Real vanilla experience is not possible. Computer hardware is massively better, monitors are much bigger.

    I was hopeing they were going to create a fully remastered classic. Updated textures/models for everything but the same gameplay letting you switch back and forth between them if you want. Similar to what 343 did with Halo 1/2.

    Just forget it dude, Blizzard isn't going to add updated models and textures. It's going to be too much of an effort and it can cause many issues, especially if they'd also update the terrain and buildings.

    Yup that's what people are doing all the time on private servers that have a bad anti cheat.

    For example there used to be a WSG mod where you could take the enemy's flag and then you could get to your side with a bridge that was under the world map.
    Or the Molten Core mod where you could mine dark iron ore without mobs ever aggroing you.

    And that's also a good example on why an official "optional" world edit is a terrible idea, because different terrain/models/textures can cause these kinds of issues.

    EDIT: Maybe that's important to add: Blizzard however does have these checks server-side, but they aren't perfect and you'll only get disconnected when they detect that you're like way out of the map

    they should emulate the game grinding down to 1 fps when approaching ironforge as it did for most people who only had 512mb of ram, for authenticity

    You can't change the textures and terrains with these options, just water/shader effects, ground clutter etc

    This shit is still happening to me (not that extreme tho) and I have a decent PC (Ryzen 5 CPU, rx 570 8gb graphics). I can have solid 60fps+ with 4k and high settings, but whenever there are many players combined with smoke, mist effects it can easily drop to 20 fps (at least when these effects are directly in front of me)

    Yes. There will no doubt be community patches that do this like there are on private servers, though they’re against the ToS on live.

    Hopefully Blizzard will give us the option to change to newer models officially but I doubt it.

    They haven't said anything about that AFAIK. So it's still in the table for all we know.

    I would say no... it would take a lot of work to get the older models updated to look proper on newer models.

    I dont think its possible for terrain - had to remake everything from the scratch. It is possible for models though, especially character models - I dont see a problem to add an inferface option (maybe several for different types) to switch from classic to current models - this does not affect gameplay in any way.

    Sure, if you want to end up having your account sanctioned for hacking.

    and yet they have done it since the very beginning of the game.

    I have a dick, so I have technical ability to rape someone. Does that mean that I must be jailed? Most of people are doing harmless model edits for their own pleasure. Blizzard has tools to check that. A lot of people does that. They won't be banned. Relax.
