Is AoC different? I see there's going to be stuff like Kick I, Kick II, Kick III etc but is the combat spammy?
There's no autoattack and attacks don't queue so you have to hit the attack key every time you want to swing. You're limited by the speed of the attack animation. With spellcasting there is a short queue but it does not register on the UI - I imagine it works in a similar way that WoW's fix for /stopcast macros. Combat feels more engaging which is exactly why the system is a great idea, but I find the controls to be cumbersome.

outside of the memleak crashes, the game is pretty sweet i have to admit. i can imagine some very sick pvp happening with this game.

Thanks for the info, Ninjaman09.

It sems that Funcom has put a muzzle on beta testers to stop them talking about lvl13+, and not only that, you can't even level up past 13 to see those areas. That tells me Funcom isn't confident about their game, because the only areas that are polished are the newbie ones and the rest of the game is broken/bugged out/incomplete.

So tired of horse **** MMO's that promise the world and fail to deliver by releasing too early. I hope AoC is different, but right now it's sounding like I've seen all this before.

Exactly. I wasn't expecting the question to be as involved and fun as it is.

PVP however is what will keep me with this game. If that is good then it will be my main game. If not then I won't be playing any mmo.

The fact that it's rated M means more kids will be in it because of that. Gotta be "cool" ya' know?

I have it preordered and haven't played the Beta yet. I plan on giving it a fair chance and will be ignoring both the fans and critics. Fan boys and the haters usually get it wrong.

Can we get some screenshots? Some HQ settings probably? Or is it not allowed yet?

actually they capped it at lvl 13 because they didnt want to spoil the story.
The game even becomes better after lvl 13

I'm still kind of on the fence with this one. I'm getting kind of bored with questing past level 6, and I'm not really digging the combat system as melee. I do have a necro at level 7 or so, and it seems a bit better. The graphics are amazing and I run a steady 40fps with everything maxed even with debugger and all that other crap running.

I have it preordered, and it is different than WOW which is a good thing, but man I'm really considering dropping the preorder, and just picking up GTA4 for my PS3 instead.
