Will you like Warhammer's combat?

Just thought I'd bring this up, since it's something that I've noticed. WAR has slower paced combat according to their very own vids on their website. For anyone wondering what it will be like that hasn't played DAoC, I would suggest playing the DAoC trial to get an idea of WARs combat.

*Note* - I haven't actually played WAR, just going off of what I've seen in their vids.

I personally prefer faster paced combat but I can live with slower paced if the game is actually good.

    it depends on your opinion.  My opinion is combat is far to fast which limits tactical and thoughtful choices.

    Well to be honest, I wouldn't think about it right now;) The game is still in beta so it could possible be that they are still working on stuff. And if beta testers find it to slow and they pbb would change it.

    Having time to ponder things I don't think is a reality of combat. I know it's a game, but I think faster combat is good to promote quick thinking, plus, it's more exciting.

    I've seen some more recent videos on youtube in high quality...the combat is looking good. Nice pace, but not super fast.

    With slightly more than a month til release, I don't think they'll be changing much of a core mechanic.

    It depends on what fast paced means.

    If it means you die in 2 seconds then no.

    If it means you need to make lots of quick movements then yes.

    My interpretation of fast combat is the mob dies to fast.  Not that you have to make fast or slow decisions.  What I am strongly against are short refreshes, short fights, mobs being underpowered.  My desire or hope is that abiilities are tactical, there is enough time in a fight to make choices and the choices one uses is actually meaningful.

    I think a better question would be "How long do you want combat to last"

    Please don't go according to any vids made before the NDA is lifted. There is a very nice difference between current beta and old vids.

    If I'm not mistaken I believe they just recently released a patch that improved combat speed, so we'll see.

    YUP, the very last patch improved combat responsiveness by a lot.

    Can't say anything detailed but I like the combat system.

    At lvl 20+ I probably will because Josh said it will be awesome!

    dont think its slow at all.  But I guess it would depend on the class you pick...  Im having lots of fun so far

  • icedutahicedutah west valley, UTMember Posts: 67 Uncommon

    It's a fine speed of combat for me.  Seems like the speed of Guild Wars PvP in my opinion.  Which is pretty good pace. 

    In old beta versions it was a bit slow.  But not anymore.  Total time to kill is perfect also.  Not too fast like WoW, but not too slow like LOTRO.

  • Ender4Ender4 milwaukee, WIMember Posts: 2,247 Uncommon

    Combat in WAR is a bit faster than WoW but with a slightly longer time to kill.  I fail to see the problem.

  • GreenChaosGreenChaos Chicago, ILMember Posts: 2,268

    I never watched one vid.

    I am playing it, the combat is not slow.  You just have to play it.  Try playing a light armor melee DPS in the middle of a crowd of 300. 

    We aren't just talking about button pushing here.  You have to keep track of what others are doing.  Who is a good target?  are are your healers in trouble? 

    And each class will play a little differently.  The vids do not give you a feel for the game.

    Judging from latest vids , combat looks just about right.

    Not to slow , but also no LOLCOPTERS!!!!

     

    Thanks mythic !



  • PheacePheace LeidenMember Posts: 2,408

    Fast slow isn't really the issue for me. Does it feel like the character is responding to *me* directly? Or does it just feel like he's reacting to my orders. Is it queuing my commands or doing them instantly?

     

    Combat wise... I'm not sure if I like the Wow warrior type rage thing on all the characters, was my least favorite mechanic in the game, still need to see how that plays out.

    "Quick thinking"? more like button mashing. And I would very much prefer to choose your attacks than hitting random buttons.

    I would prefer slower to fast considering faster would just turn into a button mashing fest. 

    Slower imo would give more chances for intelligent decisions to be made.
