Woot! A new column by Anne! *dancey-dance*So. There was that blue post yesterday addressing character model updates:http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3077927869?page=1#5"We've made changes in the past to various characters and had some people be a bit upset that it was changed on them as they had made very specific choices about the look of their character."What previous character changes are they talking about here?They could solve the issue of some people not wanting any changes by letting players decide if they want to use an old model or a new one. Yet, that would probably result if lots of technical difficulties. Anyway, I'm glad that this concern was addressed at all.

There was the one patch that made human females look all googley-eyed....

There was a "bug" at one point that reduced the size of shoulder armour on male orcs from "ludicrously backbreaking" to merely "chiropractor's friends". Cue massive QQ and they "fixed" the "bug".IIRC I think they also tried out new faces during the Wrath beta, but they were kinda sucky or something.

I'm wondering if they're referring to the Druid Bear, Cat, or Tree Form updates. Only thing I can really think of.

a.k.a., "the Newsweek patch"?

Jaina's new model. Imagine that stuck-up, snobby-looking model being applied to every human female model and I can see Blizzard's hesitation. But I'm almost certain that it will happen, probably sooner rather than later after the recent sub-loss.

They removed some polygons from the human female faces. They used to have more roundness to them.

I think they refer to that patch that gave all male draenei mustaches..

Actually way back when, there was a patch that lowered the breast size of female toons.

@Kadzeroth That was to correct a balance issue. *ducks*
