Which MMO has the best combat feel?

Post by TheHidden01 on Wed Jul 17, 2013 2:53 pm

In my informal survey of comments on Massively, one of the common dealbreakers that I see for MMOs is a combat system that just doesn't feel right for the player. Maybe the animations are off, the sounds are too wimpy, or the pacing is annoying. Whatever the case may be, the art of war isn't enjoyable and that pushes a player away.

But what about the flip-side? I'd like us to examine MMOs that get combat right and provide that "feel" that hits a sweet spot in your gaming pleasure center. I love it if weapons sound the way that I think they should, that there are reactive effects when I hit the enemy, and that skills go off more or less right when I activate them.

So which MMO has the best combat feel? Let's duke it out!


The Dragoon King;

"Let your character be your weapon, your fellow guild members be your armour, your blood thirst be your helmet, and use your boots to make a stand. After every battle allow your shield to be your faith in one another, and return from battle either carrying it or resting upon it."

Dorek: besides you sound like a fucking psycho anyway so you would make em piss emselves

Guild Wars 2 and SWTOR feel pretty good, but for me the obvious choice is MxO.
