    Umm what? Crazy hair colour has nothing to do with more work. Grease/burn marks, no different from scars on orcs or tattoos. Golden teeth - jewelry option and sunglasses - you have on some races (circlets on dreanei for example)

    The only thing that I listed that would require more work would be a fat belly.

    The updates aren't bad or anything, but they will be incomplete until they get gilgoblin options. If dwarves can get wildhammers, then goblins should be able to get gilgoblins.

    Main thing that bothers me is the jagged, polygonal feet with the toes all glued together.
    Kupo.

    What does it matter if the options are great, you chose a goblin, theyre small so you can't really see them and they're meant to be ugly. They were ugly before so you should have been okay with no updates.

    all races have that. Check Trolls, Night Elves, Blood Elves, and Humans
    Night Elves NEED long hair to the ground and more elegant/regal beautiful options to show their Highbourne heritage

    female goblin shoulders float 10ft above their actual shoulders. It ruins the race. They use goblin male shoulder models.

    they are not bad, just lackluster, blizzard tend to do a hal-asset work with less popular races

    I don't really play male goblin so I frankly haven't noticed. The female goblins look great though.

    And by extension, I can't believe how well they actually managed to salvage the female worgen from the atrocity they used to be.

    I like my goblin just fine (female warlock), I just wish their Heritage armor was something totally different. For me, it doesn't really fit with any class and I don't use it, which is disappointing. YMMV.

I for one feel they ruined the male goblin models, but the females look 110% better than before. So here is a poll since I am curious what y'all think about this.
    My horde main is a female goblin and I LOVE how her updated model looks - it is better looking in every way.

    My greatest fear is that one day, my MMO-Champion ignore list will run out of space.

    Yea. She does look great. I really do think they really did the female goblin model updates amazingly. So. My issues with the male goblin models updates:

    1. They have permasmiles now. That sucks for someone wanting to play a goblin that looks crooked, crazy, demented or up to no good.
    2. The eyes added some uncanny valley issues. Previously the eyes looked more monstrous. Now to me they feel kind of out of place.
    3. Faces loook like they've had too much plastic surgery.
    4. For some odd reason they made the heads a bit bigger and blockier.
    5. They don't look as gritty as they used to.

    The only two issues I can think of with the female goblin models is:

    1. Same face sydrome.
    2. Eyebrows don't change color, but I understand this is getting changed in shadowlands.

    Overall though, I still consider it like 110% improvement. These are just my opinions of course too. I am sure many love the male goblin model updates as they are now.

    can someone post before/after shots? To me they look exactly the same. And thats coming from a goblin player throughout CATA

    I keep seeing this new trend called uncanny..

    What does it even mean lol?

  13. #33
    Like many of the new models, they suffer from same face syndrome, which has robbed most of the faces of their personality.

    This was exactly what I thought when I seen this post!

    Male


    Female

    Not a trend. Uncanny valley is when something artifical looks a little too close to human without being close enough resulting in the brain telling you something is not right.



    This robot for example.

    Gallywix stole all the goblin customization options when he jiggled out of Orgs back gate when Sylvanas was smoke puffing away after killing Saurfang.

    Thanks. So apparently they fucked the faces. The rest of the model body looks better, higher poly count and higher res textures. Unnoticeable really unless A/B comparison. Specially since Goblins are such small models.

    One thin I did notice is the shoulder armor on the females seems like floating over their shoulder and Im pretty positive this wasn't the case with the old moldel. I see this happening to other models too like the Female Undead. Really ruins the whole look.

    I'm sad they didnt fix the goblin female shoulderpad positioning. Too far from the head that it looks like shit.

    I agree that most shoulder armor looks 'off' on them. More often than not I hide it with transmog because of that.

    Right?

    They look *so* good otherwise, but it looks awful from behind due to it.
