I was recently playing a non-MMO 'Brink' that had a feature I have long wished for in MMO movement and combat.
They call it S.M.A.R.T. movement, which is an overly fancy name for an admittedly nice graphical and physics system where your character can climb and otherwise traverse various terrain like a noob parkour 'free runner.'
In Brink, the abilities vary with body type, basically leaner guys can climb better than meat shields. I would think in an MMO the possibilities of varying it with your armor weight would also be strategic.
I was wondering if anyone knew why this was never done in MMOs (aside from super hero MMOs sort of).
People talk about loading screens being unimmersive...a little for me but...
I am constantly unimmersed in MMOs when my character can shoot fireballs out of his hand, but can't climb a little hill that I could, in real life, walk up while texting and probably jump on my skateboard.
