my opinion is that all mmo players really wanted for action combat was the ability to block and roll dodge on demand. Eso ran with the action combat theme at the time to an offensive way to improve damage ( animation cancelling) that involved alot of clicking and practice training, at least for those who didnt find a way around it.
do you think they went to far in the quest to provide action combat? You cant have a real discussion on the eso site because of all the aggressive defenders they have there so ill post it here instead.
We shall know them by their works
