    That flickering with the camera while they do skills would drive me crazy.

    Still as herky-jerky as CBT1, but now Michael Bay approved.

    The combat mechanics look great. Is there collision detection, atleast for melee? But yeah, the flickering. Jesus image

    Much faster and intuitive than CBT1. I like it. PvP will be great. And mass PvP - guild wars and sieges, without tab targeting - imagine battle with 400 players and so fast non target combat... amazing. You will need formations - diamond, circle, edge, shield wall. And combine all that with mounted combat... just amazing.

    Ya know, with this trend of "action" combat in MMOs, I'd love to see an MMO where you didn't have to hit the unarmored, cloth wearing, soft-flesh exposed enemy 50 times to whittle down their health bar.

    Bit disappointed in the warrior combat but archer, mage and berzerker gameplay looks really fun. Hopefully they improve the combat animations and cut down on the blur and flashing.

    Leaving out the video quality nitpicking of previous posters, I will say that the game now looks like it has Vindictus quality action combat (best in the genre) in the single best looking MMO setting I have seen. If they can manage to do the siege warfare decently and translate the story so it makes sense it will be far better than TESO with its bland combat.

     

    So, now I am beyond looking forward to the game and am now waiting impatiently for release.

    What I see there is left mosue button spam spam spam spam spam oo look he is going to hit me jump back.. 1 special attack.. left mouse button spam spam spam spam spam.. (unless of course its auto attack)

    That melee guy pulls off so many attacks without even getting tired.. Plus animation locks for attacks.. so you cant move when attacking you are just locked in an animation.

    No real tactics involved here just spam and move out the way. I dont know I just want something more from a combat system these days.. Sure this system looks nice and is maybe fun for a bit but I could see myself getting bored of it fast..

     

    Who knows guess I just have to wait until I can try it. Guess I am just waiting for an MMO with monut and blade style combat.. a few onthe way so I will have to wait for those as well/

    Game looks awesome so far but I could do without that camera flicker thing.  I think playing this for an hour would give me  a headache.
  • MardukkMardukk Member Posts: 1,994 Uncommon
    Not liking the constant camera blur and the animation locks.  Hopefully easily fixable.
  • TybostTybost Member Posts: 559 Uncommon
    Looking pretty good but the blur does need to be turned down a bit....kind of bothered my eyes!
  • ormeonormeon NuenenMember Posts: 39 Uncommon
    Looks fine, but they really need to do something about the dumbarse AI. Jeez, what slow reaction speed.

    You're welcome :)

    Really like what they showed so far. Let's hope they find a publisher for the Western territories.

    I don't mind the whole over-the-top effects. I loved Kingdoms of Amular back when it released as wel and it had a similar combat style.

    1) Make the AI a little bit smarter, this looks too easy to me.

    2) As long as the classes are gender locked I will never get into it.

    Is this game even coming out in the US? Any news? ETA?

    Impressive combat and engine.

    Pro:

    • AAA quality animations of both player and NPCs. This is almost cut-scene quality.
    • Top notch particle effects, subtle and professional
    • Superb sound FX engineering
    • Physically accurate combat with impact and weight.
    Cons:
    • Overuse of depth of field
    • Too much Blur
    • Camera shakes and impacts are disorienting
    • Prone to induce motion sickness
     
    Not sure i could play this on the settings shown in the video. It was hard to watch at some points due to the excessive shaking and blurring. This however may change when you control the character yourself.

    for sure they will have an option to remove camera shake (at least in GW2 there is, although in jumping puzzle the camera shaking supposed to add difficulty ..!)

    well if you want to make a compare check the C9 which had the same developers .. yes its far away better than ESO and Wildstar, i dunno why they learned nothing from Vindictus and C9 ... : /

    also in boss mechanics they mention there will be formations, if they transfer these formation in siege warfare this game will be a blast for guilds xD
