In action combat games, why is Melee always the most underpowered combat style?

    This guy always posts stuff he already knows the answer to and just wants to get people to respond.  All his posts are the same formula.  Pretend your confused or need help and appear to be reaching out to the community.

    Well, not in my MMO (Vanguard).

    We only have one ranged class, the Ranger, and it certainly isnt superior to melee.

    In fact its also a pretty decent melee class.

    There's a reason our human combat evolved from


    Swords -> Bows / Crossbows / Siege -> Firearms / Cannons -> Modern


    Ranged never has to "close the gap". Even if you made a sword 2x as a gun, people will still use the gun. Look at CoD. Knives one hit kill. Look at Counter Strike, etc etc etc. Now in MMOs they generally balance it out but the reason why ranged is always better is because they generally do not have to close the gap. Sure games like WoW are bringing more speed boosts and leaps to melee, but ranged will always have a slight advantage.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)
