Daniel Erickson: And preferably to get rid of the “Fight one guy for a minute and a half, then sit down and eat bread.”
James Ohlen: The thing is, I don’t think we’re revolutionizing combat. We’re just trying to take… we want to appeal to MMO fans who like the strategy and tactics involved in MMO combat, where you have the different character types, the guy who’s a tank that jumps into battle and everyone focuses on him while you have your ranged DPS guys.
We still want to have that.
I was disappointed when I re-read this. The tank and spank playstyle doesn't fit with the Star Wars idea. You are not going to piss off a Rancor and take its hits, bites, throws... for long. I wanted this game to have more tactical play. I understand nothing has been released... and I am going to give this game a chance (hands down the biggest game I am waiting for). But I hope they do something more "Heroic" then tank and spank.
