In live interviews, including Arenanet's showcase of the Charr race, we were promised more charr horn options upon release!

So, where are they? The charr have no new horn options, and no new face options. Now, while face options were not explicitly promised, horn options were. Yet we still only have 9 choices. What is Arenanet playing at?

I honestly want more hairstyles, an option to choose your OWN DAMN MAKEUP. And more body types where the boobs are (actually) small but they still have those 'round' curves as the one with silicon tits do. Oh, and horns. I guess in general, I wish there was more options. More faces, more hairstyles, more horns, etc, etc :l

I don't think so. If anything they TOOK OUT one of the male asura faces (if I remember correctly).

As for horns, there might be more, for a small number of gems of course...

The charr aren't the only problem, it seems. Humans are lacking in ethnic faces (which were promised), and asura cc could be bulkier.

There are dozens of ways to customise your character in this game, more than many other MMOs in fact, yet people still complain that they want more...

Which one? As far as I know they were still all there...
Last time Asuras were playable (Gamescom 2011?), there wasn't more face, just many time the same one but with different eye color/style.

I wish they allowed us to choose our own eye style for 'em though.

Yet if we are promised something, and then the company doesn't follow through on that promise, it's a problem. Customization is a key concern for many people--and it's very one-sided at this point. Sylvari & Humans get numerous options, whereas Charr get very few.

Yes but if the company has never said when they would fulfill their promise is the promise really broken... atm they have bigger things to deal with then a few more cosmetic options.

Yes they did. It was stated in an interview "There will be more charr horn options on release."
Well, the game has been released. -shrug-

Just give them a little bit more time. Usually Arena Net delivers, the community is very close to them.

My opinion is that the Charr has some pretty good customization with patterns and color variation, not to mention you can customize your horns length (which in some cases make them curve).

Oh, don't worry, there'll be more customization the day they add recustomization tokens to the cash shop (we can only hope, however, that the unlocks will be account-wide instead of for the character you're currently on and that you get a free recustomization if you bought a new feature...).

How are they lacking in ethnic faces? All seem represented there. I think they're lacking in numbers in general, not in ethnicity.

This is a great quote from Arenanet that talked about Charr having boobs.

"So, you can either have no breasts, or six of them.

I've scoured Youtube for it, but it's old and I can't find it with all the new videos up. It was when the designers were doing a Charr preview--they went into CC and explained that more options were to come. If I find it, I'll post the link here.

No, release isn't until Tuesday--but it seems unlikely that they'd put the head-start people at any kind of disadvantage. Or have a head-start to begin with if everything isn't ready.

I guess they had to do something with all the sliced off charr boobs. They crammed all those spares inside every human and norn woman's chest--six per chest :P

Yeah, I remember them saying somewhere you would be able to choose no horns, but that never happened. I guess I've grown to like my horns...

we are in a head start GW2 officially is released on tuesday the 28th of august... so yes yes it is... also it just sounds like they had an idea of what they wanted to do and people just assumed they would do it anything would change

Yeah, I remember that interview, too. Can't remember when or where, but I do remember them talking about adding more options for launch.

I do have to say, I'm rather disappointed that it seems they aren't following through. Lack of more horn and face options has really bugged me throughout all the betas and stress tests, and I was holding out some hope that they'd surprise us on release. They did so much right with the charr, so it saddens me that they seem to have dropped the ball on this.

And I very much doubt anything new will be added on the 28th. If they did, they would have to give everyone who prepurchased the option to remake their character(s) or they would alienate a large chunk of their loyal fanbase by essentially going "Sure you supported us by buying the game before release -- or even before a date was announced -- but now you're not getting all the options and you have to delete a character if you want to use the new options." I don't see that happening, so what we see is what we've got.

No, there is very little to customize your toon in this game. This has the least options atm. They were supposed to add a dozen more options.

Ever play Aion?? Now that game has a MILLIONS ways to customize your toon, they allow you to create every single size over 200 faces over 90 hair styles, can create the size  of every single body part can have every single hair color/style/ facial features and tattoos.

Also the fact that you are wearing  a ugly robe in 95% of this game, all of pvp, and from lvls 1-40 every char looks the same in the same ugly robes, We can't even attack in our fashion set which is pretty lame

lolwut...  the game is out.. they aren't going to add customization now.  they didn't in gw1 unless you include the races in the expansions & the subsequent $5 option.

every time an MMO comes out the fans allways scream "its beta they'll add more at launch!" its never true no matter how much ppl point it out to them. can't believe you're point it POST launch.
