RemovedI'm very happy, and I hope to see more variety in Human enemies especially! They tend to suffer from severe cases of sameface.
I can't wait! I hope this will happen for Silvermoon too.
So those Human NPCs with Asian names that have existed since Classic will finally have Asian faces? Nice.
Hope they change the children too and their boat size feet.
THEY ARE LISTENING!
RemovedWhile I think it's a great idea to allow guards and others to be different and whatnot, changing established characters is just a bit....much. It's like how Marvel keeps ripping off costumes off of well established characters and slapping them onto some nobody. It doesn't work like that.
Well you can go ahead and throw away your real world genetic arguments as those were thrown out the window the moment it was decided Aliens from entire different worlds could breed perfectly fine. I.E Orcs and Draenei.This universe clearly does not adhere to the real life norms of evolution, and nor should it. It's fantasy, it's meant to be unrealistic.
This is such a stupid retcon.It would have been so much more interesting to give these races their own subcultures, but no, instead they're all european I guess, and instead panda-people get the Chinese culture, etc. It's boring and kind of insulting if you think about it.
If it makes people feel like they've won an important victory in their eternal struggle, then more power to them to subscribe and show Blizzard that WoW can still be a central talking point in 2020's modernization.
Go be butthurt somewhere else, literally every person in the world is completely different and your getting mad about a pigmentation?
It is insulting that pretty much every non-European culture depicted in wow is by animals or monsters but that's what they have to work with. This is a good place to start and not really a "retcon" just a limitation of the customization they were working with when the game was made (and the lack of imagination and sensitivity of their original writers/artists).
At the end of the day, it's Blizzards universe and lore.If they say Humans can be black, humans can be black.No ones forcing you to like that of course, and if Black humans bother you that much you could go play another fantasy MMO. Though most of them also have Black humans so that may hinder your enjoyment.
