> I understand complaints that not all things are perfect Graphics in Wow are just old and -in many situations- ugly. By "ugly" I mean ultra-low detailed with textures that remind me the first games for PC back in 90' as I said before. In a MMO where both gameplay AND graphics are important, this is -for me- something bad. I still enjoy the game but time passes and the engine is showing its age.Another ultra-ugly thing of the 3D engine is related to collisions. There are simply no collisions at all. Weapons, objects, wings, beasts, ... You fly on a dragon with open wings and wings cross the mountains. Last time I was flying from Crystalsong forest to Borean Tundra with an Arcane Missile behind me. He followed me ALL the time. More or less like when you move and get hit 20 yards before. I know its a client-server problem but it's annoying.Considering we're in 2009 I am too much used to see "basic" stuff such as good shadowing, correct collisions, physics (simple or advanced in some games) and much more. I do not feel the need of fancy Directx10 idiot-stuff. I just miss "basic" stuff that still does not appear in WoW.I do not say that WoW is bad and poorly done. It's a great game and I still play and pay my monthly fee. But the graphics and the simplistic implementation of many features are starting to annoy me. > but that Blizzard are do graphics "bad" because they > haven't wasted time upgrading the old world so it's as> pretty as the newer frontiers? New frontiers are a polished and "better organized" version of the old world. You still have ugly textures, no collisions, no physics and everything else. They are better thanks to a better design, of course.> It seems like a short sighted view to meWell I play since 2 years more or less. That means I like the game for what it offers. But if Blizzard will ever offer a new client with updated graphics and ask 50$ for it I would *IMMEDIATELY* pay and start a new toon just for the fun and pleasure of exploring the revamped areas.I love both content AND graphics in a game. Someone would play WoW even in wireframe on a 12" screen. I do not, I want more (from graphics).
