Actually, I've always thought that the water looked rather pretty.

No amount of tweaking the scalers will prevent that, it all comes down to skin color and hair choice.
Maybe I should have said "realistic for an MMO". Cause... yeah... I think the only problem is the fact that there are only two eye shapes. If they made more eye shapes than "Asian" and "European Descent" then people would start looking a whole lot different.

This game needs to throw all its hair out and start from scratch. It's a freakin' travesty.
...I will not disagree with you on this however. Cryptic just needs to hire Apachii and never need to worry about cool hairstyles ever again.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
