Graphics in wow

Hello, I think World of Warcraft requires a new Engine to bring players back and make the game better. Since many players play Skyrim cuz of the good graphic WoW loose players, World of Warcraft should be much better just because there are more stuff to do and you can play ONLINE!!! How awesome wouldn't that be? I don't know if you agree with me, but I think Blizzard would do a higher graphic settings. To bring players back from Skyrim. Sure, Skyrim is a good game. But WoW would be much better if they upgrade the Graphics! :) I have spoke with a GM and he totally agree with me. If you don't belive me, suit yourself. :)
I also agree that gaining a million dollar would be beneficial to me, that doesn't mean it's going to happen though.

The Graphics engine is constantly maintained and updated, while the game may not look as good as Skyrim, it also needs other considerations taken into account that games like Skyrim can ignore.

Simply put, Blizzard will upgrade the game engine as is nessecary, though you're welcome to suggest it changed on the general gameplay forums.
I think WoW looks just fine. You are also being selfish if you forget the reason WoW has low graphics - for those with lower spec PCs.

Also graphics don't make a good game.
if they make an MMO with gfx like skyrim , you will get one laggy game , WoW runs fluid and you can't put killer gfx in a game that is so big with lots of players playing and lots of mobs playing at the same time.

Also WoW on ultra doesn't look that bad, especialy newer content looks good on ultra:p
New race for the Horde: Mudcrabs.
Why would anyone play a game only for the graphics? Besides, updating the graphics would cause a lot of issues. Right now you could play WoW with a pancake, meaning that it's really accessible. Improve the graphics and some people won't be able to play anymore. WoW's graphics are fine and once they update the models a bit it'll be even better. WoW has a cartoony style that doesn't get outdated easily.
The Graphics is great .

^This.

And yes, the graphics in Skyrim looks nice but could you think World of Warcraft with similar graphics while having thousands of people Online at same time?
Firelands dailies. looks fine. models look great. don't need updated
In my opinion, an overhaul wouldn't go amiss - not for the graphics but for the scripting. If I recall correctly, some of the devs themselves said that there's only so much that can be done with the current engine and that they'd very much like to be able to do more with the game, ergo would like a new engine. They also said somewhere that the Deathwing encounters was pretty much the limit of what the current engine can achieve.

Besides, they were updating the graphics side of things for MoP anyway.

Those mudcrabs really messed me up when I first started playing... I really wasnt expecting a coiuple of crabs to start beating me up :'<

On topic, I believe I was told that the lower the graphichs the quicker the loading time, or something along those lines.

I agree. To believe that Skyrim may simultaneously have the amount of players that WoW has is ludicrous. This is very hi-tech advanced technology we are talking about. lol: D But seriously, yes.

Really?

Also I'll say what I said last time...

If they change WoW's graphics I can no play no more. *sad face*

Nobody is saying that.

Graphics can greatly enhance one's sense of immersion though. If Skyrim had the graphics of WoW I certainly wouldn't be half as frightened when I'm all alone out in the woods and mountains at night in Skyrim. Anyone been to those mountains around Markath? Now that looks intimidating. Imagine if WoW had areas like that. Good (realistic) graphics greatly enhance my gaming experience.
No one quits WoW to play Skyrim just because of the graphics.
