The beta combat system was the best I ever experienced period. Yes it had issues, it wasn't perfect but it was a lot more fun than what is in game currently.

Why was it changed to begin with?

Anybody have the full story?

I came into the game a good while after launch and was never into the beta. But if I get you correct you are talking about the combat system that had like 8 directions instead ov the 5 directions now. I think they just concluded on that it became too tedious. I mean some people are even saying that today with 5 directions and the modified combosystem that the game is too hard for the real big masses (and thats why AoC have more like an 50 000 to 100 000 players instead of 500 000). So I sort of understanding them. They already have 1 game that is so hard that only like a few thousand players play it (Anarchy Online), I guess they did not need another one :D

actually i am not aware of any change to the combat system.

i played beta, and hell, there were no 8 directions.

Well it was like early early beta I think. This was basically before they postponed AoC launch with a full year. They postponed it basically because they wanted to make the system into what it is today.

They dropped some of the major combos from 5 steps to 3 and made a few 1-steps, like ccs, just a button.

To be honest, the chances of this happening is very, very small. Reason is that the huge work that went into the reform in 1,5 update and around there. Also a huge reason must be the new teamsize for AoC. I don`t see it happening that they will spend alot of time on something this unimportant. (it really is in the larger picture..)

At least there is still a combo system here.
