Yea, did no one see the gameplay?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AevmEGsZH7ESkip to the 3:33 minute mark and look at the combat animations, they clearly have a start, and finish frame, just like warcraft.You can even tell when he uses special skills in a hotbar like in warcraft.Its the same thing, just with a star wars setting. They removed the UI to either hide this fact or to make it seem more cinematic.Im not saying its bad, WoW is the most popular MMO, why not try to milk that I guess.I am just saying, I have had it with the same old autoattack, special skills on hotbar grinding mmo that everyone does now.And this is no different.

I think it is hard to do real-time combat in an RPG since stats are the driving force behind combat and not twitch reflexes.

Tabula Rasa tried to do a more real time thing and we all know how that worked out.For all the knocking of autoattacking there's still some twitch elements to WoW, particularly in PvP with instant casts.I still would like to see someone try something different, no doubt. But it ain't easy..

darkfall online is all twitch combat in a warcraft world, problem is the rampant hackers and macroing and the bad animations. Its not a quality game. But they were on the right track.

I don't understand why SOE just doesn't return to PRE-NG since pretty much EVERYONE has demanded it. I really wanted to get into SW Galaxies, but by the time I could play it, it was too late.

The only good MMO that would be able to keep my attention is one that is twitch combat, like blood is talking about. Or one with an artstyle that is too good for me not to try, like FFXI (aka, no fucking MIDGETS WITH BEARDS).

Yea man, it had everything, you could play all types of characters, those that didnt want to kill things could still progress with all the other professions like dancer or image deisgner or doctor, and even THOSE professions had combat branches too.pre NGE swg was the shit.It all went down hill after holocrons came into play.

I love when games give you the option to not go out and combat all the time. EQ had some classes like that.Also I remember in SWG how becoming a Jedi was hard as FUNK.
