    I mean, owls have always been associated with wisdom, due to classical Greek mythology concerning Athena. The Kyrians have a very Greek/Nordic aesthetic and naming conventions. That particular aspect has nothing to do with being "cute" - other than most owls are cute.

    Otherwise, no. WoW hasn't become "more" cute - there have always been animal people, pets, kids, and other "cute" models in WoW. 8.3 deals with tentacles, eyeballs, and flesh, with Vulpera being playable.
    3 hints to surviving MMO-C forums:
    1.) If you have an opinion, someone will say that it is wrong
    2.) If you have a source, there will be people who refuse to believe it
    3.) If you use logic, it will be largely ignored
    btw: Spires of Arak = Arakkoa.

    WoW and War3 have always been cute and cartoony, it's just too low-poly for many to realise it. And as it's mentioned numerous times in this thread, back when WoW was released, it's treated as a game for kids and a safespace for carebears because of how it looked and how it played.

    No, WoW was always dark and gloom. It wasn't cute. They changed game direction to please chinese anime players.

    I find FF14 to be cuter than WoW (keep in mind I've only gotten to like level 20 or something), but that's just me

    Eventually everyone comes to me

    I am still amazed at how any person with a functioning brain can think this.

    Honest question; is life hard for you? I mean just by writing that sentence, you must be in a state of perpetual, political outrage. Doesn't it get old after a while, feeling upset and triggered over every little thing you come across?

    True dark grit if I ever saw it!

    I remember a time when right wingers like you used to complain about people branding you and anyone they disagree with or dislike with derogatory words and sweeping categorizations with no nuance.

    What a surprise (not) it is to find out that you're all the same. You, the people you hate, are exactly the same. Hypocrisy at its finest.

    I mean it's pretty undeniable that WoW has gotten way more cutesy over the years.

    Why you people choose to be offended by that I don't know.

    I said nothing about fuzzy boobie pics in the old games, but I liked the gore and sadistic part of our enemy in the games (which is not present in the current games, and the point of what I was making). If I want some titties id go to a strip club, make a booty call or have fun on google. Weird how cute is titties to you...

    Subtleties of gore and violence is what makes these games human and realistic. We live at a point of time were we don't see any of that, but it was prevalent in those times...hence the gore.

    subtleties of gore and violence is different from me saying wow is subtle...

    Also its quite obvious cute has a different meaning amongst our ages and preferences. Most people who listed a "cute" creatures/humaniods is just wrong in my opinion. Goofy, retarded and over animalmorpich is not "CUTE," but just funny.

    Problem of this topic, as I have already said, in understanding difference+(+) between cute and dumb, between serious and silly (this is especially noticeable in 3D realization).

    But why? "It feels" is no argument. What is your perception of a "Death realm"? Even in religion it often has both, a nice place where you get rewarded and one where you are tortured. Cute people have to go somewhere....


    And that is before I tell you that "cute" is perception and even cute beings can be absolute bastards. Watch any children schlock Horror movie...
