    Flashy combat with no substance? If I want flashy combat I'll go play black desert remastered. Nothing about this is jumping out at me to say new or unique.

    There are few buttons to press, and the UI gives you no more information than you can get on the screen of your Swtich. :)

    Why always the Switch hate? It's blatantly obvious you don't own one. I'm betting you never even got your hands on one considering you past comments.

    The substance lies in the overall content, not just the combat. The combat presented (so far) is definitely engaging, I'll wait to see how they combine the tab-target approach to the final result.

    I saw monster as playable? maybe it's just the video point of view. It would also be interesting to see assassin morphed to a tree and stab people in the back.

    Forgive my ignorance, but if they don’t know yet how “combat” will work, what are they spending all their time doing? Shouldn’t we be seeing the other MMO aspects of the game that were touted in the promo videos the last couple of years? I’m not even trying to troll here. I just have no idea what kind of game AoC is going to be or how far along the development really is based on recent videos.

    As a backer of this game I am considering asking for a refund.   This game a year ago stated it was a Tab Target game.   Now they are playing off the well is Action Combat because a handful of cry babies on the forums cant stand slow combat yet dont like GW, or ESO or Tera.   I am also not the only person thinking about a refund now, a bunch of friends who threw money at the kickstarter are also thinking about asking for refunds because they too wanted a tab target non P2W Sandbox MMORPG.   Again Developers not listening to core fans a listening to a few dumb asses on the forums 



    You can choose between tab targeting and action combat. How is it possible that you and your friends all backed this game but none of you know this? And how the hell can you yell P2W before the game is even out?
    Welcome to the boards! Some people back games and don't play them or follow them, not saying that's happened here but that does happen.


    Can you clarify this, is action combat point and attack while tab targeting is tab and attack? is that the only difference between action and tab combat?

    I like the look of the combat. That UI has me scratching my head. I see the player having like three skills shown as he's using a lot more than three. Where are the other skills and cool down timers?

    Sounds good so far overall. Hundreds to get into alpha 2?

    I know it's Alpha One, but the ESO style combat just isn't for me. Hard pass. Please don't fail me Pantheon.

    Always slag on anything made by Nintendo, same with Apple products, it's just what you do.

    They are the 'evil empires' of their respective markets, sort of like EA is to gaming.

    I am more impressed after watching this. I ks many games but passed on this one because I did not think they would make it like CoE. They appear to be proving me wrong.

    They have shown more progress in a shorter time frame than almost any other crowd funded MMO out there which totally surprised me for sure.

    They still claim to be on schedule for an end of 2019 launch which if Steven pulls off will put him and his team firmly in the annals of gaming history.

    Assuming it doesn't suck of course.

    ... and all these years of traveling on the super hype train just to say " SUPER hard pass for me" in 10 sec... And then you forgot about this game as if even existed. Man, that sucks big time.

    Optioning tab-target in a free targeting game is a contradiction. How does that even work?

    I'm perfectly lining up my opponent and timing my attacks while  their attacks magic-bullet curve to hit me every time?

    There has to be more to it.

    They are already working on Battle Royal mode and have not even made the mmo yet. 

    That is why they went with this style of combat. /SMH

    If you tab to a targed your hits will aim said target. If you don't tab to a target your hits will travel following your screen target mark and follow hit-detection mechanics while traveling.

    I'll give an example, not a great one tho: In GW2 if you swing your sword the hit-detection will say if it hits whoever is on it's proximity... When you do Leap Strike with a Greatsword you'll leap the skill distance straight ahead, but if you are tab targeting someone you'll leap to your target instead.

    Please use something like z-targeting from zelda for the melee combat. No one likes the swing'your-club-in-circles mele fighting that it seems this game will have.

    If they make that release and it's well-received, I can see a whole lot of gamers and journalists in general giving the other crowdfunded projects that "so now what's the excuse?" look.


    Rightfully so.
