Is anyone else unable to get into the game due to how shitty the char designs are? I mean the guys look like dorky beefsticks, and the girls have butt fugly faces, a wait that makes them look anorexhic and generally aren't very nice to look at. For me I have to like my char to really get into the game and the races in wildstar just look so shitty that its making it hard to enjoy the game. If they at least had body sliders I could remedy these issues but for some unknown probally stupid reason the devs don't seem to wanna put them in. I know alot of people who liked the sound of wildstar, then they seen the horrible character designs and then lost all interest.

Am I the only one who feels this way? and no its not about fapping to my character, if I wanted to play a mmorpg with stick figures i'd play one (in terms of the girls in wildstar). I just can't seem to stay in the game for more than an hour due to how crap the char designs are compared to most other mmo's.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

or

B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    Well, I think the hyper exageration, like most other things in this game, is exactly what they wanted to do.  After that its a matter of taste.  For myself I like the visual design, just not sure if im going to be into the gameplay.

    The running animations were pretty appalling last time I played, and the models were . . . eh, okay I guess. It seemed like everyone (male characters included) had birth bearing hips. So we'll see if that's been updated.

    It hasn't, I did hear they reduced the Aurim breast size though from beachballs down to softballs. Gameplay wise, play Tera which is already out you got the generial idea of wildstars combat system. Other than that its just yet another wow-style themepark quest to cap deal. Though the path system is new and the amp system sounds neat. But yeah the crap char designs are really keeping me from buying it, unless they add body sliders for at least the waist areas I'll probally not get it.

    No... In my mind it has some of the best and most coherent design in a very long time. Everything fits the world in my mind and i am sure it will keep it´s appeal over the years come. At least going by the art on the web page and the dev logs.

     

    But then again this is my very personal taste, i prefer color to gritty.

    Eh you cant impress everyone. I for one like the character models they fit with the world very nicely. Plus if i let something like this stop me from enjoying and game id be unable to enjoy pretty much half the games out there. Ive seen the character models of ESO and they look just a weird as the ones in wildstar just in a diffrent way.

    On topic how ever. Yeah, the 'cartoon' or 'WoW' style isn't doing it any favours. But I believe in game play over graphics.

    I found it VERY difficult to take anything the OP was saying as a "serious opinion" due to all the swearing because it just sounds like a troll more than anything.

    BUT on topic, I do like the art work and character design. I like the art work because if you try to go for a more realistic approach than a cartoony approach, in a good few years it will look a lot more dated, main example being EQ2 (which I am still a huge fan of).

    For the character design, I like it because the characters do seem silly and to me that's the theme of the game. To be a fun, silly MMO with enough seriousness to take it seriously as well. If it is one thing that has made me really sad lately it is that MMO's are lacking humour which is what gets me excited for Wildstar and that is why the character design fits.

    If I were to not play games because the designs are shit I would have nothing to play. I have often expressed my distate for half naked knights and so on. The only game that I could not get into because of designs was Bayonetta. That thing made me cringe so hard I could barely see.
