I guess what it comes down to is that old argument of art style vstechnology. Personally, I'm a fan of the art style of WoW, but I'malso of the opinion that eventually you have to upgrade the graphicsform a technological standpoint, because the game will look sohorribly dated in time that even games with lesser art direction willlook better. And I believe that's the case with WoW now. It doesn'tneed to compete with Aion, but to drag back the GW reference, even ifit was on par with Guild Wars 1 while retaining the same art style, itwould be enough to breathe some life into the game and make it lastalongside GW2 and Aion in the future, (and/or until Blizzard's "nextgen" MMO comes out).I admit graphics aren't, and shouldn't be, the main draw of a game,but when one of the most common complaints I hear about Warcraft whenI try to get other (gw players) to play with me is that they're unableto justify paying monthly for a game which has such dated graphics andvirtually non-existent character customization. Though the bashing isusually not on the race models themselves, but mostly on the lack ofdetail on the armors, along with the inability to dye it differentcolors to have some semblance of a matching set
