@Gargron "lets take a character with black features and actually make her anglo bc the gamers wont wanna fuck!!!"
I am looking at this as greyscale and I see a black lady on the left and a white lady with sloppy makeup on the right.
I am insufficiently familiar with dota to say anything about it as “whitewashing”, I’ve never played it.
@Gargron Considering they're usually seen from afar the detailing on the hair feels like it's going too far and potentially making it look worse during regular play.
I get the skin and eye texture changes if they're going for "Night Elf", but not why their features went from "black woman" to "white woman". Outside of not-so-great reasons at least.
So, yeah. Big hmm indeed.
