Its good. I love the transparency, however I cant help but notice the visual downgrade. It isnt game breaking or too much of a turn off for me, but I know for some it will be.
Oh yeah, Caspian didn't mentioned it here because we'd talked about it in previous blogs, but just as Labbe was saying; the pre-alpha client ("PrElyria" as its called) uses a lower-fidelity art style on purpose, so that we don't waste a lot of time focusing on art production before the related mechanics are actually nailed down. The full CoE client is still the same level of visual fidelity we've shown in the past; we're just showing what we're explicitly working on now, which is all done in the PrElyria client.
Hope that helps! :)
