ST'RM!!!

tauraktaurak rock cave, WVMember Posts: 174

I gotta say I absolutely love this race.

Wow it is amazing.

The fact that they packed so much detail into this model with the ammount of polys they are using is, for lack of better words, pro. If you take any one of WoW's character models and sit it beside this one, the St'rm blows it out of the water, and its not even finished yet!

Some of you guys might not really realise what this means. Does anyone know how many polygons are in WoW's character models? I know its more than 12k.

Seeing the detail of this model alone shows me that whoever is doing the modeling for this game is very very talented.

I for one was not impressed at all with the other 2 models. The Viking and the TDD are just run of the mill humans. The St'rm however is off the charts awesome.

I was totally not expecting something this cool, not at all.

I really hope they will make more "new" races for the game. Its very cool to see something that hasn't been done before. I like vikings, dwarves, orcs, elves and all that stuff just as much as the next guy, but to see something totally new is a breath of fresh air.

    She's really awesome : once again MJ's team know how to think outside the box, and bring fresh new ideas and concepts.

    Not only "think outside the box", but be able to translate those ideas into game-bits within a pretty darn short timeframe.  Impressive.

    Finally!  Something other than Elf, Orc, Dwarf, etc.  Refreshing.

    Pretty sure it's not a Hib, Mid or Alb.

    It's on some Realm, has to be one of the three.

    My take it would fit well in Arthurian lore....

     

    A cockatrice is a mythical beast, essentially a two-legged dragon with a rooster's head. "An ornament in the drama and poetry of the Elizabethans", Laurence Breiner described it. It featured prominently in English thought and myth for centuries.

    The feathered hair, reptilian midsection, leathery wings and clawed feet could make for a good backstory.....

    you have heard about the curly white haired boy...son of a sheep herder?

     

    Daaaaaaady......

    That race looks ridiculously awesome.

    I shall make an alt names St'rm Thurmond...no, no I wont.

  • Not a fan of the name but I am digging the model.  I actually liked the concept art as well.  Some people have said they are waiting to see what it looks like with armor, but I think if it had natural armor the way it looks, it could be a fun mechanic.  Although as a crafter I would feel like I was losing out on potential customers :)

    MJ said, that much like "Camelot unchained", "St'rm" is a working title, not the final name.

    wow has like sub 1000-2000 poly per character. not even in the same league and really given that wow is like 10 years old...it shouldn't be...

    I know, just putting in my two cents.

    I guess you're right, I figured they would be a lot more.

    So I guess technically, with MJ and Andrew saying they're going to cut down the graphics for game play, we're still going to have better graphics than WoW.

    Now I am even more happy lol

    i think that means cut down the graphics compared to current engines eg: crysis 3 or unreal 4 that use 20k polygons per character :P Unreal 3 uses about 12k polygons, these ghraphics will be high end, but not so much "next gen" graphics.

    I'm not sure how original a concept it is, many games have a similar lizard/dragon kin style races but the art and modelling for this race is pretty cool.

     

    Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

    I think she looks badass, and I hope they continue to make the races look unique and not the typical Dwarf, Elf, Human, Cat we see in just about every mmo these days.

    I'd love to see how an actual in game model will look like with 100+ st'rms on the screen.

    EQ2 had a lizard race. GW2 has Charr and Sylvari which are quite unique as far as races are concerned.

    You guys want to promote this kickstarter ? Don't you ? Then do it the correct way and add a link. Really, most people nowadays don't have the patience to do this by themselves. ;)

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/13861848/camelot-unchained/posts/456223

    Btw , the name is a bad choice. How are you supposed to pronounce this even ? Google says I want to search for stream when I enter St'rm.

    Thanks for the link, Anthur - I actually clicked on this thread wanting to take a look at the model for this race again.  VERY cool. :)

    And I, too, am kind of glad they said this name is only a "working title" at the moment.  The pronunciation thing is pretty confusing, lol.

  • RandomDownRandomDown Louisville, KYMember Posts: 145 Uncommon
    MJ never pronounced it either. He just spelled it out. So uh, I guess its whatever direction you wanna go with it.

    Also, this might not even be a player race, this could just be an NPC, so it might never have armor.

    On one of the podcasts last night, they said that the wings were not vestigal...they had some sort of use.

    NOW I WANT TO KNOW WHAT THAT USE IS! 

    Or just give me some wings. ;D
