Are Female Worgen Really Too Ugly?
I’m seeing a lot of complaints in the World of Warcraft Community about the look of the Worgen Female model. I’ll admit that I was part of the crowd that thought the first look we got of the female Worgen was too soft. Now that we are seeing an updated model a whole new crowd is fired up about how angry and “ugly” the new model looks.
In the image for this post I put the face of the new model on the left and the old on the right for comparison.
Here are some quotes from players:
“The face is beyond ridiculous.”
“Then I saw the new female forms. And… Wow. This is terrible.”
“That makes me think of the Hyenas from the Lion King… ”
“I am also for the old models, the new ones just don’t cut it for me.”
Players may not prefer the look of the new model to the old one, but if you think about it, a Worgen should be an angry, nasty, snarling creature. The old model looked to me like she would be more likely to be standing in the woods holding a tray of cupcakes singing the theme to all your favorite Disney movies.
While the new form looks like when she transforms from Human to Worgen form, you had better run because she will claw your face off.
I think if you really want to play a “pretty” race, play an elf. But if you want to play a race that will change from human to beast, and in doing so, will go from friendly to scary, then play a Worgen. In my opinion the new model fits the race much better and just makes more sense.
