    A bit boring so far. I keep watching.

    EDIT: by boring, I mean nothing I've seen so far makes me want to log into that game immediately and play one of those characters.

    To be honest, that combat gameplay looks terrible to me. Animations are awful and feel completely disconnected, there's no feeling of impact of your hits. I mean, compared to existing games, both older and newer.

    I agree,
    I'm sure their will be more types of mobs since its pre-alpha, but the fights are rather long. 

    BUT, I could live in a place like this all afternoon with a bunch of friends.

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing more of it, but for now, I'm definitely not impressed at all.

    It looks pretty similar to EQ combat.  I believe that is what they were trying to provide.  EQ combat is slow and doesn't look spectacular.  Instead it requires a lot of precise timing of ability use.  Sometimes you aren't doing much in combat, but then have to do a lot for a small time frame.  It isn't an action combat system clearly.  It is more like real time turn based combat.
  • delete5230delete5230 Member EpicPosts: 6,572
    If individual combat is this long, it would be hard pressed to keep a party of 6 interested in staying even one time..... Let alone all the time. 
  • Flyte27Flyte27 Member RarePosts: 4,574
    The people who would play this game and support it probably would stay interested.  Most people probably won't.

    Which is terrible. Bringing back something almost 20 years old can't end well.
    There are games which have set the milestones for modern MMO combat. That doesn't mean simplification, that can involve the complexity of "old school" (disputable...), but that means top notch hand/eye synchronization and the feeling that your actions have a tangible repercussion on screen immediately.
    I want that dagger or sword to actually feel like it hits the enemy. Not like I'm just swinging a stick in the air.
    That is a big part of why that live stream is so boring.

    Why? it was fine. I caught the last 20 minutes (will see the rest when they post it) and it looked fun.

    There is no law that states auto attacks have to synchronize with animations.  This game is more of the style of something like Baldur's Gate or Dragon Age Origins.  In real time turn based combat it matters little.  I'd imagine wasting time on getting the animations to sync would be time spent on something unneeded.  They are having enough trouble getting the game finished.  I don't think the fan of games like Pillars of Eternity complained that the combat was too similar to old infinity engine games.

    Earlier I was watching some two year old Rift dungeon Youtubes, some were hardcore ones.  Sure their they had more action, BUT NO ONE WAS TAKING ANY DAMMAGE. Nothing tactical about any of it.  

    They need to find a good balance.
  • AzmodeusAzmodeus Member UncommonPosts: 268
    Dam, cant wait for this. Grouping, roles, community, teamwork, fear of death, trinity, crowd control, something that has been missing for years in MMOs.  I rather have everything I just mentioned instead of boring, fast paced, bunny hopping spam festy zerg fights that we have in modern MMOs.  Will this game be niche?  Maybe it will, but it is a breath of fresh air.

    The lack of impact is my concern too. I know it is Alpha, but I am not sure this is something they can fix. 

  • kertinkertin Member UncommonPosts: 252
    So many excuses that it's Alpha :smile: ...looks boring, can't see any impact when hitting, animations are meh, full of bugs (which is fine for alpha), very slow combat (and yeah I mean very VERY slow), design of that dungeon is bad too imo - looks boring and stereotypical, optimization doesn't look good too....yeah it's alpha, pre-alpha, whatever but there is no chance they can fix all those problems, this is not next big MMO coming out, honestly I'd rather play Vanguard over this...still gonna keep my eyes on this but as I said they can't fix some of those issues
  • Flyte27Flyte27 Member RarePosts: 4,574
    The people who complain about slow combat are usually the ones who end up dying a lot because of badly timed attacks as a result of lack of patience.  They also can't do without the big animations, glowy weapons, quest trackers, etc.  I don't believe the game was designed for those types of people.  I can play either type of game and enjoy them.  People still play chess.

    I basically disagree with just about everything you said.  That being said, maybe the game will not be for you?  There are TONS of games which seem to have what you are looking for.  Am I wrong by saying this was never designed to break record MMO sales?
