Those graphics are still ancient.

I got into WoW for what it offered, not it's visuals. I never hopped into WoW expecting it to be something akin to Crysis (despite Crysis coming after but used as an example of expetcing high fidelity visuals). Yes it looks dated but so do other MMO's out there and some that are recent are going to end up looking dated a lot sooner down the line.

The things I love about WoW were it's story, it's character lore, the art style (as pictured below) and the soundtrack as well as the different classes, all that to me was what drew me towards the game and still does.

 

Also Minecraft by it's visuals alone looks pretty low in the graphics dept, but it's still played by millions of people years later, it's not the graphics that drew those people in either, it was the style, the creativity and what you were allowed to do within the game.

 

OT: I loved the new skin changes we got back in WoD, I feel like they were a step up from the vanilla models, including their animations they gave.

 

Just look at the poor Vanilla Tauren:

Also we received new AA and AO options in WoD:

 

So far I'm loving what Legion is giving me and allowing me to play it at my own pace, allowing me to level up in the other zones(besides Suramar which is for 110 content) and the profession changes they have made in this expansion make it much more easier to get into and make some money off as well as gear this time around.

I'm too poor for wow lol i played till level 20 and it was a good game though



To be honest, the game that released 12 years ago is not part of it anymore. Vanilla was completely replaced with Cataclysm. The oldest piece of WoW in-game is Outland from the burning crusade expansion.



lol For the people criticizing the graphics, they were brilliant to adopt such a simple, unique, adaptable art style.

Playing it on max settings today I still find the graphics to be more than adequate; it's just colorful, fun, and full of that recognizable Blizzard personality... It's hard to describe but you always know it when you see it heh

If they'd gone the more realistic route it'd have aged terribly as those games tend to do, would have been more difficult to update, and would have been straining computers this entire time. As it stands, the game looks great 12 years later and is easy to run.

Methinks they made the right call. :p
