I have to say that i was really happy to see some good gameplay action. I read an article on IGN.com and it really impressed me. The only thing that scares me are the following:
-The initial levels will be played "alone"
-The combat system
Some complained about the animations, but i think they are fine. I'm sick of the super duper animations... i want to see more "realistic" stuff.
The combat system is a new take on MMORPG combat and it's scary. It could basically kill AoC if it's bad.
