Alright well I was avoiding ryzom because last time I played it it was a ghost town. How is it now? Are they actually actively developing it now?
As far as Vanguard goes. Did they ever fix that mess? I liked the game but it seemed like an abandoned mess with no pvp other than the gank fest of a broken pvp server.
My favorite game of all time was SWG, but get this not precu. The CU was my absolute favorite game. Skill based, auto target, auto attack and tactical. Any combination of skills could win if you knew how to properly play it.
That being said I just recently tried Darkfall and turned away from it based on the full loot system and the manual targeting. I also tried Fallen Earth and turned away after a few hours because its clunky and feels like someone smashed NGE swg and fallout 3 together. Also played mortal online which was pretty much just a Darkfall copy cat in shambles.
Anywho what I'm looking for in an MMO:
1) Tactical, auto targeted combat. I hate strafing and circling to avoid attacks. Also cant stand Pot spamming 1 shotting asian style mmos but totally open to an asian style thats not like that
2) Some what open worlds. Everything instanced out the ass really bugs me.
3) Diverse classes or skills system. I like classes with some choice or of course the fabled skill system.
4) World pvp, no looting players
Some games I loved I wish I could have back..... CU swg, Fung Wan Online (man I miss that game), populated COH/COV, first month MXO.
I was into AoC for a few months but once I capped a character I was like eh.... the pvp is really shady with how easy it is for casters. And yes I know CU swg was cloned off WoWs combat but I really cant stand WoW
Wish I had read more before buying. Ex-SWG players warning.

So I decided that I wanted to try to find another mmo to play. Darkfall is the only new release and I've heard some decent things about it. So heres my list of things I cant stand after I played it for 10mins. Most people will say well wait you played it for 10mins? How can you form an opinion in 10mins? Well I'll tell you how in the end.
First and foremost the game feels like a bad collaboration of a bunch of other games I've played. Skills from Ryzom, world from Vanguard, Character creation from (insert any of the numerous mmos on the market with terrible character creation), and heres the real kick in the ass that ended my want to try the game, COMBAT FROM NGE SWG.
Now being the former swg player I am I'd still be playing that (PRE or Post CU) but they went ahead and ruined it with the NGE. So I'm playing Darkfall and was already leary after reading a tutorial and them mentioning how you have to aim. So I get in associate myself with the UI and run, very far, very slowly to kill my first goblin. I get there and yes the difficulty level of the game is definitely not gear to noob which is good but holy hell, I feel like I'm playing some sort of bad console action rpg. Infact it felt like I was playing the Lord Of The Rings action games for ps2.
Not only do you have to aim but you have to click EVERYTIME you want to execute a base attack. Not to mention its not like 2 or 3 clicks and they're dead its like 10 to 20. This combat system feels like the exact reason I stopped playing SWG. I just find it funny that now I know where SOE ripped off the design for the NGE from, musta known someone over there at the Darkfall development thinktank.
So in conclusion, DONT BUY THIS GAME IF YOU DONT LIKE THE STAR WARS GALAXIES NGE SYSTEM LIKE IT WAS WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT.
save yourself a monthly fee and go play counter strike or something.
