When I began my journey into Tyria I was excited at the possibilities the game would bring and the amazing expereinces I would have. I also wanted to play dress up in a mmo whose focus was on these alternative modes of progression but there has been a distinct lack of costumes since the start of the game. Yes there has been a couple town clothes but when these are the main earners that are usually in a cash shop you would think Arenanet would want to be pumping them out and guess what, I would have bought heaps.
The problem though is this guy.
Think about it. All the other races are mainly just scaling up and down accordingly, you create the costume for humans then move from there. You have wierd humans that are pretty much the same except for a couple pointy bits up top, you have bigger humans, you have the Asura as smaller humans just with bigger heads, then you have gigantic fricken cats.
I love the design of the Charr, they are an amazing and creative race that departed from a lot of the norms you usually see. They weren’t cutesy (except for Roxx’s gigantic eyes), they were fierce predators and looked like they belonged in Tyria. Unfortunately their dimensions and posture are vastly different than the other races. Their stance is cat like.. especially their running animations; they have that long elongated neck, have a huge bulk around the shoulders, and not to mention a waggly little tail. They are far from human.
Unfortunately this means whenever Anet are creating outfits they have to create one for the humanoids then a complete new one for the felines. It doubles production time of awesome outfits! It is probably why we have had so many weapon skins in comparison; these can scale up and down regardless of race and require little manipulation to suit.
So, in light of this I purpose an extermination of all non NPC Charr on the basis that we need more pretty outfits. Let the Hunger Games begin!!
