I'm going out on a limb here and choosing DC Universe.  Of all the MMO's I've played, it had the most enjoyable combat, by far.  With button combos, blocks, block breakers, lunges, and stuns, in addition to powers, you had to be skillful (or cheat :P) to have success in combat.  Since the button actions are real-time (punches, blocks, combos, lunges, etc.),  you're not just queuing up skills and watching animations and cool-downs resolve.  You have to use the button actions to build up energy for powers, which do run on a cooldown.  This varies the combat immensely.

If DCUO had more content I'd probably still be playing it.  Fast-paced, fun, action-oriented combat is the main appeal of the game.  It is worth playing for a good two or three months before you'll burn out due to lack of content.  Having said that, I never got tired of throwing buses at hapless noobs. Tip: use a console-style controller for the true combat experience.

emperorwings writes: Lol metric butt load. Love that technical term. Some of those f2p asian grinders which names aren't even worth mentioning have good animations you get epic fireworks for doing nothing and each skill looks good like a big pink curcle with stuff falling from the sky. WHo doesn't like that? Tue Nov 20 2012 1:03AM Report
plescure writes: the player animations in eq2 are still way better than most modern day mmo's imo. and this from a game that is 8 yrs old! Tue Nov 20 2012 3:40AM Report

I rest my case about mmorpg.com selective promoting is the name of the day here.

No mention of Age Of Wushu beta which started on the 15th.

A sandbox mmo with some great feature that you haven't seen in any mmo to dat yet it get's no mention.

ugh, so absolutetly no news at all, i mean compared to the last pretty lengthy mmoftw.

Well maybe the industry is at a halt more or less and we are just trying to milk the dead cow.

Best animations: GW2,  Tera a close second. GW2 gets the whole lower body moving while upper body attacks done properly where other games have tried and end up with awkward twisted bodies. It also has great dodge anims and each weapon is animated differently for each class using them. So more animations really than any other MMO.

Thanks for the update, but it was kinda sparse on the meat stuffs. Pretty much just reading of some headlines and bulletpoints.

Looking forward to some more indepth analysis.

cheers,

Griffs1999 writes: GW2 The Lost Shores event was the worst fucking event I've ever seen in a MMO. Been playing MMOs for almost 9 years now and it was total BS. Throughout the whole weekend on my server you had people standing at NPCs for hrs, cause they were glitched and we were all wanting to finish the questline. I never even got to finish it. The actually Lost Shores zone was so over run, that I could not even get on the same server as my guild members. I was stuck in a Over Flow server. I ended up missing the final fight against the Ancient Karka, and after waiting 4 hrs hoping that the event would start again I just logged. I can't believe anyone would log in for another one of those weekends. Thu Nov 22 2012 9:27AM Report
