WoW is what we were arguing about, GR... and that was essentially my case. OB1, if I remember, was citing EverQuest II...

Remember, I kept posting screenshots of WoW, OB1 would insult them in some way, etc, etc?

Everquest II had great technical graphics, but a poor art style. OB1 complained about WoW, because with a great art style AND great technical graphics it would have looked even better. He was complaining because he thought that Blizzard could have made a better graphics engine than the one they had, by pointing out that Everquest II, a game that came out at roughly the same time period I think, had a very high-end graphics engine, which OB1 thought WoW should have had as well. There.

Mostly correct, but I remember him being definitely more negative than that about WCIII/WoW's artistic quality... where are the threads in question, it'd be better to actually look at them.

WoW would of course look a lot better with more polys and special effects. I imagine though that just like the original EQ it will get future graphical upgrades. The EverQuest of today looks nothing like it did when it first came out.

Oh and have any of you seen the Asian localization of EQII? It looks like a completly different game. Much, much better character models.

WoW wouldn't look better with better graphics if it then wouldn't run on computers like mine... (see: EQII)
