amcolex writes: actually i dont think so, players are able to shift there defence where they choose, at first it may seem simple, but once you get to the point where you need to really be efficient, you can't just spam the same combo oover and over again Mon May 19 2008 1:22PM Report

Aetern-e writes: So great to hear that the game is impressive and that the players that could ACTUALLY LOG IN can access this area. Funcom are great developers, but not great "runners" of an mmo. Mon May 19 2008 2:08PM Report
daeandor writes: uh, no, I haven't played AoC, but all mmorpg's are the same when it comes to "innovative" combat: players figure it out eventually in their attempt to min / max and they all come down to relatively simple button mashing. It is the nature of mmorpg combat. Like I said before, it is all cool at first, but once you figure out your best "combo", that is all you end up working for in every fight.

daeandor writes: I didn't say it was as bad as auto-attack, or even *bad* for that matter, just that it would end up the same as VG, EQ2, DDO, and others that had dev proclaimed "innovative" combat upon release. Mon May 19 2008 3:55PM Report
master-johan writes: looks kinda messy when you look at it this way, but hopefully it will be easier too play it by yourself Mon May 19 2008 4:20PM Report
shamall writes: daeandor the combat doesn't work like that. If your enemy has his shields on the side of your most powerful attack it will do hardly any damage so you cant just spam the same combo all day. Mon May 19 2008 5:23PM Report
daeandor writes: I understand how combat works in AoC. I am saying that everything is all good until players, on a large scale, start discovering the weaknesses in the combat system and adapt to it. At that point it becomes the same as any other mmorpg. If you've played mmorpgs for quite some time, you know that it is inevitable. Players, imo, are smarter (through numbers) than devs, and can always find a way to tip the scales in their favor. It's the nature of the beast. Anyhow, I'm not trying to say AoC has *bad* combat, just that in about 30 days it will be anything but "innovative." Mon May 19 2008 6:49PM Report
Draenor writes: The combat looks fairly sloppy...I guess it's because I was only watching and not playing, but I hate the look of five or six mobs just bashing on a character, and not having the character show any real damage...he just sorta brushes off all of their damage as he kills them one by one, I understand that it's the nature of the beast, but when I watch it without playing it, it feels lame.

baal/mrheat writes: hahaha, my god... how lame can a fighting system get... lisp lisp "active combat" lisp lisp HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA sheildindicators... this acctuly seems even worse then the worthless WoW pvp system Mon May 19 2008 7:35PM Report

The game LOOKS amazing, especially on a DX10/Vista machine. Looks much better than in these videos. A lot of people in the in game chat seem to be really digging it too! Mon May 19 2008 8:42PM Report

" Unfortunate for us DX10 isn't implemented yet and the option in game does nothing, and the DX10 launch was pushed back to.. I think aug? The game runs and looks a lot better then it did in beta ill agree, but lets not blow smoke here. As for the video, I liked it.. shows a decent example of the combat. If nothing else I the zone they are running around in. Mon May 19 2008 9:59PM Report
HaZaD writes: Why does he always stop and say "ahhh" "ahh" "ahhh" rofl.. Anyways I think those blood splashs on your screen look pretty annoying,they should be abit more decent,cover your more screen and be more transparent,but just my opinion :P Mon May 19 2008 10:21PM Report

Ascension08 writes: Slyths: What if you had a game that made you think about which skills to use in addition to an autoattack system? Then I'd laugh when you try to go AFK and end up dead. Mon May 26 2008 10:31AM Report
