    Honestly, it's a pretty game, but that blurry ultra fast action-combat just isn't my cup of tea. :/

    SUPER hard pass from me.

    This is why I prefer action combat like Tera. This action combat is just people constantly moving around and randomly swinging away hoping they get lucky by connecting more times than the other person.

    The combat didnt look great in the PvE dungeon previews and this makes it look even worse.

    Draw distance seemed to either be poor or cranked way down. Not my cup of tea with the flashy effects though. I would never get past that and the blur as you mentioned makes me ill. Curious to see how well optimized it is in true large scale battles as I think most folks rigs will blow up but maybe these guys will get what so many (Bless I am looking at you) wrong.

    The combat looked nice, but I thought it was going to also play on the classic nostalgia of past MMO's. The video makes you think its more of a game like Destiny set in a fantasy setting.

    Combat looks like it is very hard to master. Might be very challenging, and frustrating to learn. That can be a good thing, or a very bad thing. If I ever play this game I will find out.

    It's no one's cup of tea. It can be someone's bottle of champagne though.

    It's a good thing the UI displays "You hit David for 39 damage" otherwise I'd have no idea what was happening on the screen.

    We already have many tab-targeting MMO's, I personally think it's not bad but definitely needs more work , the costumes and environments looks really good .

    Hence why I said "not MY cup of tea". Everyone has their 'druthers.

    I understand the need to give melee combat that extra 100 feet of range on their attacks for balance, but hopefully one day they find a different path that leans more towards realism. Dark Age of Camelot simply added a /stick command which in my opinion works perfectly. However, it's quite clear AoC is following Darkfall with it's combat aspects.

    you mean how Darkfall combat should have been; Because the actual combat in DF and DFUW was a steaming pile of .......

    Hello friends,

    It’s important to note this action combat will be integrated into a tab/action hybrid. This footage is our 100% action only testing. ❤️

    Thanks for the heads up @Ashes_Steven ! If you can get something close to the combat in Neverwinter I think you will have achieved the perfect balance (imho).

    Mages running in and meleeing is always a sign of a great game....especially when they are melting guys swinging two handers (not staffs)

    Right, As your doctor I prescribe some epicness to take twice daily for the next 30 days. That should help.

    Combat looks epic, for those complaining about it go play WoW lol

    Ok, i'm 100% convinced they took Paragon's combat style and animations and adapted it for an MMO.

    The animations even look near identical to characters like Seraph and Sevarog. When it switched to the bow, it was almost the same as choosing Sparrow in Paragon, the teleport is the same as Gideon's.

    Right now, I have to go with SBFord about action combat and give it all 10 fingers down, and please no bunny hopping like at 1:23 in the clip. I have had more than I ever want to see in past games that I have played.

    Same here. The game looks quite stunning, but this kind of gameplay is not for me.

    I like the slow paced oldschool MMORPGs. This looks like something you would play on a TV using a controller.

    Its odd that they would showcase this.. They said they wont go with all out action combat, but instead test the limits of this part of the game engine to make use of it when finalizing the combat.
