I know I can use a controller, and I do for other games, but for MMO's a genre in which I expect to be interacting with other players and have a far greater range of options for my char, I want my hands on a mouse and keyboard. A controller is just to passive for MMO play. Let me also say that the difference of the UI is a bit off-putting but ultimately not a big deal because I know if the game hooks me, I'll get used to it quick.
That being the case let me say I love the fact that the game just plops you down with no tutorial, no cues, no info. Here's a world, you're in it, go explore and learn. That is great. Especially in contrast with most mainstream MMO's released in the past couple of years. The problem however is that given a situation in which you're encouraged to explore, the UI discourages the tons of mouse/keyboard work necessary to explore. So what I'm finding is that I'm logging on, then losing interest in figuring out what I need to do because the UI is so unrewarding, then logging off.
I really hope this changes, cause I really like what I've seen so far.
