Camera position

 

The quarter view, or isometric view, is coined as “Smart View” system in Lineage Eternal. The camera angle is not fixed, players can still rotate and zoom in or out.

 

Rotating the camera in a true 3D world with normal zooming is what sets this game appart from all other Isometric view games... its a 3D world and not a 2D world.. this technollogy id far beyound Diablo and all its clones..

 

If they can make this feel like a true MMO then they might have a real winner on their hands.. as it might be that fresh feeling MMO everyone is looking for..  atleast its something different which is a huge step

    First off, it's not all that impressive. Second, Grim Dawn also has that capability.

    Don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to the game, but you're exaggerating the significance of a rotatable camera quite a bit.

    AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!

    Offcourse i am looking from my very own perspective...

     

    and when recently playing both Diablo and the expansion, my biggest irritator was the lack of camera movement...  To some people this is a great big important deal...

     

    Not the only one, i think massive combat will be very important for the game

    the gesture bind combat system will feel very different

    etc

    etc

    etc

    But  for me the free camera movement is a must for me to join an isometric top down view...

    I don't mind if the camera is fixed. Lineage 1 has a fixed top-down camera and still is NC's most successful MMO. What really matters for me is whether this game will be a hardore MMO like Lineage 1 or not. I hope so, as an old L1 player.

    New video:

     

    I'd say pretty disappointed as a L1-L2 player, too much focus on instances and also a BG, and no word about the open world-open pvp:

    If the instanced pvp were like the olympics in L2 that happen once a month and decide who will be the next heros for the next month, it would be cool, but I sense the smell of compulsory meaningless instanced pvp.

    I think a game like Lineage 1 will never happen again.

     

    Now I'm expecting Black Desert as my last hope. It it fails, I'll retire from MMOs until at least 2025+, maybe a Lineage 3 can come to the rescue.

    It seems there is hope, according to Steparu, there will be open world bosses-pvp-pk and supports 500 players in a single area.

     

    Waiting to see it.
