The longer I play this game the more I miss these options to alter how other players look on my screen:
For the last year or so, I've been playing with the "Model Limit: Off" so all other players appear as walking potatoe sacks.
While that works for me, it's not optimal. You can still see all the silly looking gliders, mounts, and backpacks, with every silly color. As the saying goes, there is nothing more immersion breaking in games than other players.
As such ANet, would you please consider this to be your next QoL focus?
