Well I have my AAP reactivated because I'm playing EQ2 and PlanetSide again so, naturally, I have access to SWG so I decided to give this vaunted new "autoaim" a try to see how it feels when playing. Even with re-mapping my 7 button mouse in order to use the feature more easily it is STILL a clunky ass combat interface... not one that is any fun using to be sure. In order to use the auto-aim and auto-fire features you have to use 3 keypresses (or mousebutton clicks) a 4th to use any special you have selected because you STILL have to 'designate' a special then trigger it with the 'right click' feature. If anything the new autoaim/safety/autofire feature just makes the combat system even more horrid. (Oh.. and this particular gripe is aimed squarely at SOE... who the hell thought this garbage up?)
Oh and the server populations that 'fans' of the game keep saying are going up?
Last night, 9pm US Eastern:
8 servers on "Medium" none on heavy or higher. All the rest on "Light"
(I think they got rid of the 'very light' designation).
All that said... JTL still kicks arse
Had some fun blowing up badguys in space before I logged out... have to admit I missed space combat a bit.
EQ2... on the other hand.... over half the servers on Heavy+ and none under Medium.
