Having seen them now on the test realms I can say they most certainly WILL be offensive as they play to the basest ""Evil of Fu-Manchu" style of characterization. They pander to a very western demographic. It has ZERO to do with the existence of space goats or moomen .. neither of those races are direct racial stereotypes. This is a quantifiable difference. I love the idea of a neutral race, Bliz just could have taken the higher ground and not made them a racial caricature. Also at issue is that they are also specifically targeted at younger audiences, you can't dismiss the "Kung-fu Panda" angle outright, who are not as able to recognize said stereotypes.Just not a fan.
