Default Is it me or does Pantheon look like crap?

I have not followed Pantheon in a long time, but many of the graphics in it look worse than WoW or even old EQ2 graphics and the styles are reminiscent of the updated models of Luclin era. I remember the biggest changes were to Trolls and Ogres changing them from humorous, yet fearsome creatures, to simple brutes.

I still do not get why Brad made the game with Unity. Unity is so clunky. Regardless I am still not convinced the game will be released. I remember the kickstarter for it in 2004. IS it even in BETA 1 yet?

I am not so sure of that.... besides there is so much in Everquest I never did to keep me interested for a long time in P1999.

My complaint is that the models are not very fluid in their movement, whether when running around or swinging weapons or w/e. WoW models were much more fluid in 2004 than Pantheon is in 2019, and this really affects the feel of a game. Honestly it's hard to play EQ again after enjoying the smooth world of wow classic...

I am wondering why they don't handle it like many others games today:

Give an early access:

People can play, be part of the community and they can do changes acc. the experiences in the alpha-phase.

Many of those games died but the forest or 7DtD worked fine i think.
I mean 7DtD is still alpha but i had so many hours of platime even that it is an alpha.

They would earn a lot of money selling early access accounts.

Just what i am wondering about.

Well that is what I mean the Luclin character models were a little clunky. Polygonically they were better but most lacked the style of the originals and they were kinda clunky.

I have not tried WoW classic, but frankly it is not that hard. In great part it is about the gameplay not the graphics and they are not that bad. Go try EQ live, those are graphics to cringe at.

Yeah the classes are 100% the same as vanilla EQ. The races 3 of them are EXACTLY the same jsut different colors. Their halflings are NOT halflings. Their gnomes are NOT gnomes. Their ogres look more like simple brutes. And why so few races?
