Only the last one looks pixelated to me (looking at it in 1080p).



between the top most picture (HQ) and the lowest one?

Yes. There is clearly a differnce.

However World of Warcraft is so old, the textures so muddy.... and the artsyle is that cartoony low quality thingy.
Its honesty not a huge differnce between them (imo).

Basically WoW is ugly... reguardless of what resolution you run it at.

However its minor lol.  Wow in alot of area's looks quite dated, and "ugly".



The funny thing is that 720p was not really a thing when WoW was released, and a comparable resolution (1024x768) would have been considered fairly nice back then. I reckon a lot of players played WoW at a resolution worse than 1024x768.

Now that you say it, I can see a clear downgrade from the screenshot #5 to the #6, but only if I open the images on a new tab at a larger scale.

And if I zoom in, then this sudden fall in quality from the fifth to the sixth becomes a quite noticeable progression from the first to the last. But I can only see it clearly when i zoom in to what I believe it's double the size of my screen or so. I wouldn't have seen that progression at first glance if the image was at 125 or 150% its size, even if it becomes noticeable too.

And... I don't know if this is part of the test, but I'd swear the screenshots 4 and 5 are swapped.



Please, feel free to correct my English.

yes doing this on a small display wont work.

But you are correct, very good sight!

None, besides the blue light on the armor (last two pics)

Still have a 21" CRT monitor somewhere in the attic. Thing weights a ton!

Generally played in 1280x1024 at the time. The screen could do 1600x1200, but good luck managing to read anything in Windows without a microscope...
