OP  2/22/13 11:54:09 PM#1

I would pay $4.99 for a developer made addon that would allow me to mouse aim (similar to Tera combat system).  I would like to set my mouse 1 and mouse 2 as abilities and cast aoe/ground effects by looking down at the area to aim (if that makes sense... Smite has a neat AoE/Ground aiming system; it starts at your feet and as you move your mouse forward it moves away from you).

I started this poll because I'm curious how much would you pay, if any, for this option.

How much would you pay for a Mouse-Aimed Combat System?

$ 25+
$ 10
$ 4.99
0 - but I wouldn't mind it
I would pay 5 bucks not to have this option.

Why would they make you pay extra for that? Plenty of games allow that without having to pay extra.

Because I really want this option.  There is a player made mod that tries to do it but they are still working out the bugs.  Arenanet originally okay'd the project but recently there was some dispute.  I would prefer the developers just make this option.

I'm not suggesting that they change their current system, just that they make a cursor aimed version and allow me to set mouse 1 & 2 to abilities.

Just get a gaming mouse with extra buttons and re-bind them in the UI menu.  That's what I did.

LOL, I have a gaming mouse but I want to rebind mouse 1 and 2.   I would also like to mouse-look and aim at my targets.

I don't want to say it but Tera is doing good right now, GW2 would be smart to make a similar option for their combat system.

How would you pay attention to buffs or debuffs on an opponent?

That's actually kind of neat.  I'm not sure how the aiming is going to be, I'll look into it.  I'm basically wanting something like Tera w/a targeting recticle or Smite.  I love GW2 but after playing those other games it's hard going back to GW2 controls.

I'm thinking you could use 'tab' to lock onto a target and then just click mouse 1 and 2 (and other keybinds) to use abilties against that target.

This has been available since September.  Not sure if it's still updated though.

That's the player made mod I mentioned in the OP.  It works okay but you still can't rebind your right and left mouse buttons and the controls are a little buggy.   Recently I think they was shut down because the targeting reticle is against policy, originally Anet had okay'd the project as long as it didn't 'play for the player'.  Not sure on the official word because they don't want to officially support anything.  That's why I would prefer the developers just make one for us.

I use combat mod and i believe there is an updated version of it. GW2 has the worst targeting system and controlls that i have ever seen in any game i have ever played. With out combat mod i literally could not play this turd of a game.

 

And no i wouldn't pay $4.99 for a mouse aimed combat system or any other. I would just quit the game, especially if Anet tried to get me to pay for it.

Definitely no. Players who paid for the game are already entitled to get any patches to combat mechanism, balance, interface and control options free of charge.

I'd pay them if they implemented 'mouse aimed combat' & the holy trinity - then changed the sickly sweet, condescending, children's book style storytelling.  

How is one supposed to roleplay a thief or a necromancer in this game it's ridiculous.

 

But yeah, tab-targeting is dead. I jumped back in yesterday to see what had changed, kept left-clicking to attack with my main hand.

They had it so wherever you moved the mouse, your vision would follow without having to hold a button.

I'm not sure why they removed it in favour of what the game currently has, but it was much more fun when they had it. =(

MMO's played: Ragnarok Online (For years), WoW (for a few weeks only), Guild Wars, Lineage 2, Eve, Allods, Shattered Galaxy, 9 Dragons, City of Heroes, City of Villains, Star Trek Online (Got someone ELSE to pay for it), Champions Online (Someone else paid), Dofus, Dragonica, LOTRO, DDO and more... A LOT more. I've played good AND bad. The bad didn't last long. :P

Paraphrase: I want this game to play exactly like another game I play even though it's not the same game.

 

I won't flame, you are entitled to your opinion. Here's mine...

 

Tera's targeting/combat is the worst I've ever played in an mmo. Thank God they did not ruin GW2 by adopting that awful system. DCUO has that targeting system as well. If I wanted to play an action game, I'd play God of War or something.

 

No addons in GW2... ever. It's fine the way it is. GW2 is aiming for E-sport... horrible targeting/add-ons would ruin that.

Cheers,

Mike

Anet has already stated that this won't happen, so my option wasn't in the poll the "I don' tthink it could happen anyway."

Why would I pay extra to leave it the way it is?

I figured that would be a good option to weed out all the trolls.
