Played the game only a few days ago and it looks gorgeous now, Love the art style they have.

The music production value is fantastic too.

doesn't matter since engine is so bad/old that you will need dual xeons to run medium setting at 60fps in raids. They need to rework the entire engine from scratch if they want to start throwing stuff like hbao etc. making numbers smaller is a slight remedy for few years at best before they outscale it again. Some classes were even nerfed to "reduce raid lag".

Blizzard needs to fork some cash out and improve their game instead of milking 10 year old engine that barely changed apart from graphical improvements.

I wonder how long can they drag this out. They have been improving the visuals for some time now. I expect a total rework at some point if WoW stays popular.

I'm thinking they have something special cooking up in the backstage after Titan. Unless they are really going full throttle in the F2P market.

By the way. I had no idea about this piece of info: http://kotaku.com/heres-what-blizzar...was-1638632121
