i never played TSW but it is really slow combat in ff xiv. the global cool down is 2.5 secs. so a fast attacking class like the monk just not fun to play but 2nd toon was a glad and it wasnt as bad with the 2h wep that is ment to be slow.

this Final Fantasy game has combat like WoW. Almost 10 year old combat in 2013.

This style combat is older than 10 years ;)


Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

Criticizing a Final Fantasy game for slow combat is like bashing a Ferrari for being too fast. 

Guys it feels like a Final Fantasy MMO.

It's not bad, it's just not following the current trend of action combat.  This is fine by me, as I don't like action combat in an MMO.

Well, it's a Final Fantasy game and teh combat is modeled after Final Fantasy games as to be expected.  If you don't like Final Fantasy game combat then you probably won't like this combat because that is what they were going for.  Every Final Fantasy numbered game has "turn" based combat, if it doesn't they don't give it a number.

And it nothing like TSW combat, nor does the 2.5 second cooldown stay 2.5 seconds or even apply to all abilities. Something that also offsets the cooldown is that abilities have pretty long cast times compared to instant hitting abilities of other MMOs, this is because interrupts are a big part of the combat as likely will be a big part of PvP.

It depends on what class you are.  My caster felt okay because the animations took up most of the 2.5 cooldown.  My fighter felt slow and clunky.

 

Another major turn off for me was my first fights involved killing squirrels, mushrooms, and ladybugs....  yes, ladybugs. 

 

I'm sure the game is great fun for many people, but I'm not impressed and not having much fun.  Still waiting on the elusive MMO I can comfortably call home.

[mod edit]. I've played both, and I enjoy FFXIV combat a lot more. Sure, it's a bit simple and lacking during the first few levels, but it becomes more complex and tactical as you level your classes. In fact, it is easily one of my top 3 combat systems I have ever played. And I've played a lot...

2.5 gcd timer that can be reduced via equipment and you also have skills that operate off the gcd. plus the monsters like to use skills all the time so you need to watch out for those at the same time. the point is, there is a lot of things to worry about doing within those 2.5 seconds of gcd.

Most memorable games: AoC(Tryanny PvP), RIFT, GW, GW2, Ragnarok Online, Aion, FFXI, FFXIV, Secret World, League of Legends (Silver II rank)

right because final fantasy 1 through 13 all used the same exact combat system. /sarcasm

How is it not? It's an MMO version of turn based combat. Nearly Identical to FF12 or 11 and even resembling 13 or any other FF that had ATB combat. The global cool down is trying to accomplish this.

It was pretty dry with a single class up to L20 or so.

Once I unlocked cross class abilities and some jobs, it gets a whole lot more involved, even with the longer GCD.

One thing I would like to add is that with the GCD, it because more about strategic choice rather than mashing the keys fast enough to get off all your abilities. Those games are fun too for their own reasons, but when you can die because you made a poor choice in what ability you used can do wonders for MMOs.

Agreed.

I was going to say it's more strategic, and planning your choices than other mmo's where you just bash as many keys as you can.

as an 'old' MMO-player, who can't compete with the fingerspeed adhd kids, I am positively surprised by the 'slow' combat with the 2,5 second GCD. Some abilities fall out of that GCD, but all together it gives me time to play the abilities I think are appropriate.

It gets faster the more you level.  Just like any game, if you only play to level 20 then you don't know what you're talking about.  On my paladin I'm hitting buttons faster and more often then any  other game I've played in awhile...

 

Also, the longer GCD is so you actually think and not mash buttons like other games.  2.5 seconds pressing the wrong button could be the difference between a wipe and victory!
