Wow, that's just stupid. Look at Nightborne's current state.
good, they focused too much on this for the release to attract the people that stop playing after a few weeks, instead of focusing on the rest of the things for the people that don't stop playing after those first few weeks.
I think they did... play with the words when they said before they were going to always add new customizations... and that of course, the allied races would need something to keep up. This, without forgetting some customizations didn't even make it to live, like druidic forms, jewelry for blood elves...We will see, but that's very sad.
But... "it is easier than ever"... at least we know each expansion we will have a nuke of new customization :D
Boooooo.The added customizations were ridiculously one-sided. Some races like orcs, tauren, and night elves got vastly more than everyone else, especially males of some races, and don't even get me started on allied races.Was hoping to get a few more bones tossed out from time to time, like when the blood elves got yellow eyes out of nowhere. Disappointing announcement.
darn that kinda sucks but oh well not the end of the world
An intermetdiate at Blender could make new customization options for characters with working animations and no clipping. You see these all over twitter. Blizzard is BS-ing if they say it's too difficult or time consuming. They are holding customization hostage for future expansions so they can do the bare minimum again and have it as a selling point so everyone laps it up.
How do these kind of features constantly get described as "big projects" for an mmo doing record financial numbers when people like @keyboardturn on twitter can constantly fix customisation more impressive than blizzards own, using their own models?
My poor nightborne mains :(
Yeah and high elves will just be put on the shelf for now. So no:-war paints-high elven hairstyles-high elven hair colors for void elves-high elven skin tones (besides the blood elven skin tones)-paladins for natural-skinned void elves-optional entropic embraceSo much for player agency expansion...
"Easier than ever." Then why not give us more? Obviously there's a lot of things that can be added and now apparently they can be done with ease. Roleplayers really can't even get anything when they pay $15 a month even when everybody else left your game in BFA and WoD?
They outright promised us that customization options would be going throughout Shadowlands, particularly Allied Race options later in Shadowlands. This is a blatant lie coming to fruition. At least in the past they would scrape together some table scraps to pretend like they were following up.Can't fathom buying Shadowlands now that anything they promise is up in the air like this.
Wonderful, so nightborne are just gonna stay shafted.
Absolutely shocking and a letdown on a colossal scale. Character customization additions were a key selling feature of Shadowlands, and to know that it's been dropped is horrifying. Nightborne? Worgen? Allied races in general? Holy crap, guys. This is such a bad look.
This is probably the biggest letdown of all the new information. Earlier, it was indicated that they had plans to continue adding more stuff as the expansion went on. This is a pretty drastic 180 from that. They did see how positively the new customization was received, didn't they? And how many ideas people came up with.What are they doing..
