World of Warcraft: "All Swollen"
Posted: Thursday October 26th, 2006 by

Apparently, Blizzard has buffed up male Bloodelf models to make them "less Feminine". The outcry was feirce and immediate; so, Blizzard quickly reminded players that this is still beta, nothing is final until the expansion goes gold.

I can't say I really cared about this particular change as, in my mind, it's a non issue. But, with so many PMs and emails about it, I figured I might get virtually strangled if I didn't address the alteration on some level. So, I stole a quote from Taks. She says it whenever a well muscled guy steps into focus on tv or in a movie. It seemed REALLY appropriate in this case. So, I ran with it.

Now, I'm not in the beta (by choice) so I don't have first hand knowledge of the amount of change that has taken place in the male bloodelf physiology. I've seen images where the bulk up looked considerable, and others where it looked barely discernable. So, I leave commentary about it to those of you that have more direct experience with the change.

Personally, I think I prefer the smaller models. They're elves. They're supposed to be lithe and lean right? Specifically added to the Horde side to give Horde players a non-bulk option? Then again, it is Blizzard's world. If Bloodelves are supposed to have been corrupted enough by fel magics to make them chunky hunks of man meat, who am I to say they can't do that?


With this issue I would like to make a plea and point out a forum rule:

My PM Inbox is set to 500 messages and I have to clean it often. So, if you PM me a joke idea, the chances that it will be deleted is considerable. It's best if you email me the idea. I keep archives of my old emails, they don't get deleted. So, there's a much greater chance that your idea will be considered.

This idea is reflected in "Unspoke" Rule #11:
