I bought the game and not playing,waiting for release.
ill rather play a good interesting real mmo with average graffix than AAA pretty graffix mmos that's crap.
its still pre-alpha so I think finished it will look good they have raised mush more than they thought and are spending where the players ask.
Uninstalled the game since developers decided to continue with their random card combat system.
Lahuzer - Its the worse combat system i've ever tested. You just stare at the hotbar waiting for random skills to pop up , meanwhile you miss all the action .
Groundbreaking? They just broke their own game...
All games are abstractions. It's not like hammering the number or function keys have any real relationship to combat, fantasy or real. Setting up a macro is certainly not action combat.
You don't have to like this iteration, but pretending that your finger dexterity in hitting the keyboard is absolutely superior to all other forms of fighting abstraction is sorta missing the bullseye, you know?
Arglebargle - Being forced to look at a hot bar that randomly present your skills and spells for you is not moving MMO combat forward in any way. When that combat system same time make you miss what your enemies are doing then i believe Gunga Din got his bullseye.
Only ones that like this system is the casual PvP players that can't compete in a game that take real player skills. They like it casual and they got it.
Lahuzer - skills/spells that randomly show up from a deck of cards on a hot bar is random. Locking skills will give you a disadvantage so to be able to compete well you need the random spells and skills.
You forgot to explain why staring at a hot bar and missing the action going on is something good and in what way that bring more depth to a PvP game?
Isn't acting with skills or spells depending on what you saw your opponent do something good?
Having to focus on a hot bar isn't gonna bring any depth to any PvP game.
It's exactly like Gunga says, the game tell me what to do next and there is just about no player control whatsoever.
When combos arrives it will be a never ending stare at the hot bar and no focus on the combat going on, how fun is that?
OK so they start talking about building a DECK....they are STANDING on a deck. I thought Strange! Then they move to yet another DECK. HUH? I was confused until they said CARDs. DuH!
I have always loved the old Ultima's (i.e. Underworld) then I loaded them with dos box. NOT like I remembered (graphics), however I really LOVED the music, Spell system & background sounds. Hope they can use some of them in this game.
I would like to thank Richard Garriott, Starr Long & the DEVs for all their hard work to bring back the Avatar. It seems they do enjoy their work. =) and I cannot wait for the finished product!
I am not a fan of PVP (I would rather kill monsters) but I enjoyed the Video ~ Merozz
