    thought exactly the same.

    after all the years of some few blue posts here and there, some Ion+Josh vids every few months, and especially the silence in SL, they now have to push as many mmoc frontpage content, as possible, their PR decided. to make it all look rather active and „full of stuff“.

    dont get me wrong: its nice, when it feels again like we are in the good ol times, when i.e. wotlk was active and way more stuff showed up (remember all the GC posts). there is nothing wrong with that. but that sour taste on my tongue results from, that we all know why.

    and as quoted poster said, these are things that normally makes sense before or after a release. thats why we all know, why they come up with it now.

    ofc this is something that was done for a Blizzcon/Blizzconline. since its canceled they can post it anyway. and its a cheap and easy way to just post what you anywise have unused in store. so, there is per se nothing wrong with that.

    i understand that you have to do this as a company, because you ARE already wrecked, because you have nothing else. its already too late and something have to be done as damage control. since there is nothing else, they ofc better do this than nothing. and why waste it, when you can cheaply using existing blizzconline stuff? but in the end, it just underlines: too little too late.

    Some of us enjoy seeing the inner workings of game design. Some gamers also happen to be game devs themselves or they are just curious. It can also help explain to players why things are like they are.

    Wow models are some of the ugliest on the planet. Really awesome to create a female in one of the asian mmos, such cute godesses. But puritans in america are extremely afraid of sexy women.
    Too bad I haven't found a good mmo from asians yet, but I do hope asian games take over and adapts a bit in the right apartments to make it more appealing for western (no 2000h grind, and subscription or f2p done right).

    I have seen 1 to 2 people create this as a side project even my.. sig is showing what a single person can do.

    This is just embarrasing.. they try to bring it as such a big project and so much work.. jeez.


    Removing mmorpg elements because it would make a simpoe choice hard? Really.. ??
    Please read this blizzard: https://www.reddit.com/r/wow/comment...m_source=share also what could have been possible with Nightborne--> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLr5dDXn5nE

    They're giving people updates on the Season of Mastery, and they're clearly now starting to pour out some of the BlizzCon content.

    What exactly is it you're expecting right now? Blizzard - like all companies - has had to adjust to working from home under COVID and that was always going to have an impact on the development cycle, then add to that the recent law suits, walkouts and everything else and it's pretty clear things are running behind schedule.

    Honestly, at this point it just feels like people are trying to get angry for the sake of it. All this whining and complaining feels extremely forced.

    It's for WoW's ultras, the overly invested that want to gobble up every little detail about the object of their fandom. They are probably still largly playing and make up an increasing part of the game's audience, so I guess the post makes more sense than I gave it credit for.
    #1) MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    #2) Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    #3)Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis. #4) The WoW playerbase doesn't deserve housing.

    Prettier package wrapping but inside the box a turd still lies...

    I suggest you to install Black Desert Online (free 7 days trial) and play around with the character creator tool. Then come back to this post and cry in agony.

    In year 2021 this is still a really bad charactereditor. We need sliders and option to move around eyes, nose, cheekbones, eyebrows etc etc.

    In this example, if you want to play a Night Elf, you’d have to go back to the previous screen, pick a different class, and then keep going back-and-forth between screens to see all your options.

    Yeah, it was pretty awkward.

    This didn’t work out, so we nearly ended up keeping the old layout and simply updating the art. During a last-minute brainstorm, my fellow UI Designers, Crash Reed and Ray Ocampo pitched a concept where the races were split into opposite sides:

    One highlight of this layout is how the face-off between the Horde and Alliance instantly communicates the faction war. We loved the simplicity and freshness of this design, so it was full steam ahead!
    This made me laugh. Took them from what I understand quite a bit of time to come up with something they didn't like, and then almost gave up until a couple of people brainstormed - "hey let's just put alliance on the right side and horde on the left side".
    Everyone's like: YOU GUYS SO SMART.

    All this effort for such little gain... can they just crack on with WoW 2.0 now please!

    my first thought..."what do we have?" "uhhh we could go over what we did at the beginning of the expansion for the character selection screen changes nobody asked for?". Nice.

    I would have preferred they spent their effort on actually adding a good amount of customizations for all races instead of all that.

    I love how they're doing this "for new players"
    Lmao, what new players? They can barely keep their old ones and they're gonna lie about actually having new ones?

    I don't play anymore, but I enjoy the systems design blogs and the engineering blogs. Being a former software engineer that now deals with system design/architecture might have something to do with it.

    Try not to paint with such a broad stroke next time. People will be more receptive towards you and your ideas.

    As someone who used to sit in Northshire, &c. to help them out can confirm: new players stopped coming ages ago. It's been just recycling for many, many years.

    There are a lot of people who dislike asian mmo character looks. A lot who won't even look at the mmo because of how chars look. For example, most of my friends refuse to play ff14 because "what is this anime sht".

    So you see, looks are subjective. Moreso, if you want cute anime girls and boys you have loads of options. If you want whatever wow offers, you can pick that.

    I myself prefer asian ones as well and find wow models quite ugly but not because they are not "sexy". But because they have no chins and have weird oddly elongated "horse faces".

    1) I’d be really interested to know how many new players are actually arriving and getting the tailored new player experience. I don’t doubt it’s happening but I’d like to know how many.

    2) I’d play the shit out of that malformed LFD as a female Broken Draenei allied race.

    While I like the subject discussed in the OP, and it's presented in very a nice way, the moment they've chosen to make such a post is distinctly... Odd.
