For many people this game barely runs smoothly with the textures in the game now. You really think BW wants to risk more QQ by putting hi-res textures into the game and then having people figure out it drops them to 12 FPS? I'm not saying no one will be able to run them but putting them in the game now will just exacerbate the perception that this game is poorly coded. I'd say leave them out until they fix whatever flaws are making the lower-res version run like crap on so many systems.
I hit 12 fps with the crappy textures. I hit past a one hundred with the crappy textures. Its random and its lousy coding. This tells me that the game coding sucks. Also using QQ is lame wow terminology. Wich tells me your from wow wich tells me your opinion dosen't matter in the least.
