@EldoronShe did convey it as an opinion. Constantly using 'I' and using words such as 'seems' are what separate opinion from fact, which she did multiple times. You're either a troll or a moron, probably both. That's how it -seems- from where -I- sit anyway. I'm stating it as an opinion, since you seem to miss such subtleties when they aren't directly pointed out to you.As for the worgen female model, I'm a male who almost exclusively plays female toons. Prior to Cataclysm, only Horde races were exceptions to this rule for me. I have to like the way my model looks. I want pretty for females, badass for males. Personally, races like orcs or tauren achieve this easily with male models, whereas I think male night elves and humans look rather goofy. I agree with you, though, that the worgen female just seems to fit the furry fetish a bit too much for me.I don't really think Blizzard is afraid of 'ugly' characters per se, but that the player base prefers pretty characters, and I count myself among them. You'll never see me roll a dwarf female, for instance. On the other hand, with so many pretty characters to choose from, I'd hardly be upset if some ugly ones were in the mix too. In any commercial product, though, I would think majority opinion generally outweighs designer preference on such things as cosmetic issues. They are trying to market and sell a game, after all. If you really want ugly models, you need more people to speak up in favor of them really. That's about the only way something like that gets added. Whether or not you can get enough support, of course, is another issue entirely.
