It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
[mod edit] When I look at videos of melee vs melee, it looks retarted, you are are simply constantly running and swinging your sword, the vast majority of people use 2 handed weapons and no one ever blocks. All you do is run around constantly and mash the swing button when you are near the enemy and think you can hit them.
Really, this game is a pile of mush, the game world may be huge but many parts of it look dull and boring, the cities don't feel alive at all and the enviornments are not very diverse, I think World of Warcrafts world looks way better then this pathetic game, I quit WoW, might go back to it one day though but I doubt it, WoW is old now, stereotypical MMORPG point and click gameplay but its still has better gaemplay then this clunky piece of garbage.
If any of you want a more enjoyable pvp experience that is also places a lot of importance on skill, wait for WildStar Online and maybe Black Desert Online. Firefall is a MMO shooter that is skill based to but it has yet to release a lot of features for it and is still in beta.
I have always wanted to play a MMORPG that has gameplay like Elder Scrolls Skyrim, Skyrim had the best gameplay ever for melee combat, it felt realistic and you were not constantly running around [mod edit] swinging and never blocking like you do in this game.
DF:UW will probably be dead in 5-7 years, it is a really bad arcade style Fantasy MMO that had stupid looking melee combat and horrible player models.
