You are entitled to your opinion, but that does not change the fact that the elves in Forgotten Realms have a specific appearance and, although this changes slightly with each edition of the books, they have retained most of their characteristics. After years of playing D&D in this setting and reading the novels, most of us are really invested in the universe and want it to be represented correctly.
This exactly! Thank you.

Especially given the love they've shown to Tieflings and Dwarves. ( Just need more beards, horns and hair for both parties )
Considering a heavy number of Fae/Fairy races will likely not be added due to them being Small/Tiny/Winged etc; I would like the Fae touched races we do have, to actually look the part! Even if it means morphing/ruining Shadowheart's current face (and it is a nice one) she looks more like a Quarter Elf, not a Half.
Right? They really outdid themselves with tieflings. It only stands to show how amazing elves could look if they actually paid them some attention.
