No New Customization Options Planned for Shadowlands

Recommended Posts

53452-total-possible-unique-combinations

During the WoW Q&A, Blizzard confirmed that they do not plan on adding any new customization options in Shadowlands.

The WoW dev team thinks that the new customization options added in the Shadowlands pre-patch allow for a ton of new options to alter the character's looks, and they are overall happy with their breadth.

As a result, new customization options aren't a priority for the team throughout Shadowlands. Do you feel like the game needs more of them, or are you happy with the options that came with the pre-patch?

I'm amazed at the stink this has caused on the forums.......

They are obviously behind on content, having a pretty looking character is all grand, when you have nothing to do, as they spent all the dev time on new hair cuts.........

*cries in Nightborne* Rather hypocritical on Blizz's part, considering they were touting customizations as a huge selling point for Shadowlands. Now it's "Nah, we're not gonna do that". Humans, orcs, trolls, dwarves, worgen, nelves and belves all got pretty decent customizations. The only allied race to get anything remotely decent was the void elves because "MUH HIGH ELVES!"

Meanwhile, allied races that needed serious overhauls *cough*Nightborne*cough* are left wanting after we were told allied race customizations were coming later. *smdh*

Definitely need more. At least for the allied races. As a Kul Tiran it baffles me that we didn't even get tattoos at all, while the wandering NPCs of Kul Tiran do.

Kinda funny that of all the dozens of things Blizz has said we would get over the years and haven't this seems to be the thing that pushed people over the edge

I love the " If we don't get customization, I want a refund " like that was why you bought the expansion?

 

" It was a selling point, I'm gonna sue for false advertizing"....no...they did add some...

 

They did a lot...if this is the point of contention and the hill you're willing to die on....then WoW isn't for you.

Or, they spent most of their dev time fine tuning all of this covenant borrowed power bullshit that the majority of players didn't want to begin with.

Nightborne and Kul Tiran need a few more options, everyone else is OK or good for options.

Every allied race needs more options now compared to classic races.

You're welcome.

In other words, you pulled it out of your "i've heard" *filtered*. 

Nice.

In other words you have access to a valid internet connection, I'm not your errand boy. Whether I'm right or wrong I couldn't care less, I've read the mounting piles of frustration with how restrictive covenants are and how tired people are of borrowed power. -shrug-

So. I've read up. Found some forum posts and redditors posting about "not liking Covvies", yet they are shut down completely by the numerous comments underneath the posts. You know it's easy to be the loud one, which are those few, but heard. Doesn't mean they are the 'majority' nor the correct ones. 

Edgelords like yourself try to enforce a lesser opinion, which is the sad truth for things like the media in general.

You're beating a dead horse here mate, as I said I couldn't really care if I'm right or wrong. More people like covenants than I thought, okay?

      Another response from a Blizzard veteran on the sexual harrassment and discrimination lawsuit filed against Activision Blizzard, as Chris Metzen, former Senior Vice President of Story & Franchise Development, the man behind the story and lore for most Blizzard franchises up until 2016, voice of Thrall and many more has now talked about the issue. He mentions his response was "later than it should have been" and continues:

      To take our minds off the news that's been in focus for a few days now, just for a second, here's a very cool machinima by Pivotal and MasterVertex. If the names sound familiar, it's because they are part of the team that brought us the incredible "Judgement" machinima recently.
      While we'll have to wait quite a while to see how/if Sylvanas is punished for what she did to Teldrassil, In "Eye for an Eye" we see Tarren Mill getting a visitor:
      Hopefully the cameo at the end indicates we get to see the actual person behind what happened to Teldrassil also get a little machinima where she is dealt with.

      We have another old Blizzard employee joining in on the commentary surrounding the Activision Blizzard lawsuit, as former Lead Systems Designer Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street offered his thoughts on the matter.
      More specifically, there's an old 2010 BlizzCon WoW Q&A video clip that's been posted to reddit and received a lot of attention, which was pointed to as being related to the issues/atmosphere alleged in the lawsuit, and while Street barely even said anything in it, he still thought he should explain the situation and apologize.
      As he was then asked directly about the situation at Blizzard at the time relating to the lawsuit, he also responded:
      You can read even more replies in this thread.

      The recent Activision Blizzard lawsuit is having effects in World of Warcraft as well, with many players staging various kinds of protests, including sit-ins in Oribos while raising money for charity, and checking up on a disappearing NPC.
      The most prominent of the protests is from the Fence Macabre RP guild who stages a sit-in on the Oribos steps with hundreds of players, and also managed to raise a huge $9,500 for the Black Girls Code non-profit organization during it:
      The guild tried to get as many individual players together on the same shard via raid groups, but there were still plenty you can't see in the screenshots.
      Another interesting "event" in the game is players heading to Stormwind to "check up" on a specific NPC, namely Field Marshal Afrasiabi (who is named for Alex Afrasiabi, one of the people mentioned in the lawsuit allegations, and who also left Blizzard in 2020).

      The more interesting thing, however, is that Blizzard has seemingly started despawning the NPC, as he was not there when some players arrived. Players had actually been asking for the removal of all references related to Afrasiabi, so this might just be Blizzard listening, although there are other references still in-game.

      And finally, a message from one group of players to the other:

      In terms of actual player comments on the matter there are, of course, many more threads discussing the issue over on r/wow, so if you want to see more community reactions head on over there, with most comments in the main lawsuit thread.
