We'd all love for some love to be given the Vanilla models, but who can blame them for being slow to change them when they get the horrible backlash nearly every time they DO change a model? (New Tree of Life, anyone? That's just the most recent example.) That, and a model change means they have to re-rig how all the armor, mounts, and animations work for each race/sex. Anybody looked at how your character looks on a DK Skeletal mount since the patch? That likely had to do with rigging for Goblins and Worgens. It's a lot more work than most people know or consider and a truly low priority, which means it's like dance studios. 'Something for the animators to do when they don't have more pressing work.' (That's a paraphrase/best recollection of one of those interviews/Q & A's that popped up here.)My point? They just upped the graphical quality of a lot of things, maybe we'll see it (racial model changes) soon. Learn patience, be less spoiled. As for all the time they spent on the female worgen? How much QQ did we get/are we still getting because it's 'too cute' 'not feral enough'? People are bitching about the Mastiff, a DOG which looks like a DOG- OMG! How long did people ask for a dog that looks like a dog? And now it's not 'bad ass' enough. I'm so glad I'm not a game designer. I'd probably rage-quit, then wait for the next Blizzcon and paintball people waiting in line.
