Rugus- You doth protest too much!For the sake of everyone that plays wow and not jsut the super literally ultra folks it is a GOOD thing that WoW isn't udpated to the highest "ultra" standard. In this contect "ultra" is a relative term and it should be really.We already have a massive game with many gb's of game files, it's easily the biggest game on my hard drive these days. Ask me to download the game textures all over again so i can switch over to a higher res version if i want? Nice idea but totally insane.The art of good game design on the PC has been and always will be in the optimisation and Blizzard manage it suprisingly well considering theirproduct and despite your complaints of it being dated it pulls off some very nice visuals in the game imo. For them to live up to elitist attitudes towards graphics would disrupt everybodies gameplay. Low polygon models and low res textures are there for very very good reasons and to put even optional higher versions would cost us all much longer patch download times and even less hard drive space. Hardly worth the effort considering what Blizz can achieve with the tools at hand.I sometimes find the way the shadows work a bit wierd though.That said i've not seen too much difference since i set my graphics to Ultra and made sure everything was toggled on. I should do some comparison screenshots myself.
