I checked the worgen whitewashing out in beta earlier and dang. I... really didn't expect Blizzard to mess up that badly. Missing an undead face option? Happens. Messed up tongue coloration on male jawless undead? Little detail. Heck, even female tauren are understandable.

...But they're completely changing the skin colors of a large percentage of worgen players now. What even. Face doesn't match with the old one? Well, your male worgen's entire skin doesn't match the old one. :|

Still no proper skullface for Forsaken female :( They're gonna completely ignore it :(

I'm really sad about this. :( Also about the male forsaken not having dark sockets anymore in some of the face options. The glow goes away for those, but they still have visibly pale eyes.

My two undead used these two faces exactly. ;_; Really, really sad about that, it completely ruins their look.

Yeah...the X faceplate used to be one of my favourite customizations, but the new eyes just don't look as cool at all. :/ It just seems like such a huge discrepancy, I don't understand why they couldn't have left the dark sockets.

I like the new face wrap. *shrug* I hated it that they had no eyeballs. I thought it was ugly. So...for me....I'm glad it's fixed.

I also noticed that all the fleshy tongue bits are green now, instead of changing color with the skin. Which... I hate... because I hate the green color.

Just. Why this. :| They dropped the ball so bigtime on the details for undead.

(I wouldn't really call it a fix when there were tons of facial options that still had glowing eyes, and that one was the special one out.)

I was hoping the tongue colours were a glitch because I swear early on they changed colour too...still crossing my fingers because I loved being able to choose that, but...:/

I'm just getting this weird... "good enough" vibe from the borked new models. Missing a really distinctive face? Eh, good enough. Almost nobody likes how the tauren have droopylip? Good enough. All the tongue colors are the same? Good enough.

I dearly hope that later on they'll edit those things in, maybe when they do the Belf revamp. Because it's just really disappointing right now.

Please, if Blizz's track record sticks to what they did when it came to worgen females, then enjoy this guys cause you're out of luck. :c

I'm really really really hoping they don't screw up BEs. Like, the model has aged relatively well. And I main BEs. And if they screw it up I'd be a very sad Azu.

Honestly they fucked up Worgen by turning them into those Cata ones :p

I'm really looking forward to Cows update. I mean you'd have to try really hard to fuck up a all black female cow :lol:

They're ignoring a lot of things. No skull face for undead girls, no dark-eyed faces for undead males, all the female gnomes look seriously unhappy, male worgen are still whitewashed, male humans and nelfs still have velcroed-on beards...

Of course, the ORCS look GREAT. >_<

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

I like the Blizz nose way way more then any of the fan made edits. Personally they've all looked like poop.

I wish they'd say for certain whether they're actually going to continue to iterate now that the models or live or if we're just stuck with this. I have 19 90s, 15 of which got new models. THREE alts still look like themselves, and an additional SEVEN are fixable via the barber shop.

The remaining five will need to be abandoned or require real money to be fixed (character recustomization for skin tone issues for two, race changes for the remaining three).

Which is why I'm turning off character models, because I just don't have that kind of money.

I also just realized that they never fixed the male troll Big Fat Braid hairdo. It sticks straight back, defying all physics and everything. Doesn't look at all intentional- here's to hoping that's honestly just a bug.
