There is something wrong with the models, they look too realistic, uncanny valley. I dunno, there is no identity what so ever to the hero models now. They look like they could be from Warhammer 4k (a game franchise notorious for making generic looking models).
I am quite disappointed. Also I am confused why they didn’t use the Heroes of the Storm art style, Heroes is a perfect balance between Warcraft III classic and World of Warcraft. It is so strange why reforge artists spent so much time inventing a brand new way to visualize the game that isn’t even aesthetically pleasing.
Sorry I can’t inline the links, you’ll have to copy them manually into your browser.
Grubby did a video on the models, I feel is it safe to talk about.
Anyway back to the Heroes of the Storm comparison.
Look how cool Uther looks here, big muscles he is cool strong paladin.
Now check out this stick figure with his stick hammer.
What about Jaina? Here she is not evil queen yet, her aura projects her original personality
here she looks like a blowup doll, with no Blizzard shoulders (iconic gag at blizz).
I could go on, it’s all the same.
What is going on? smh…
