That and it just seems so user unfriendly sometimes. The whole setup just seems cantankerous for lack of a better word.

'Course considering the now freeware "Dungeon Masters" RPGs and how their controls were somewhere between unweildy and just plain frustrating I suppose I should be more thankful...

If you don't need to take 3 months studying the controls and memorizing them just to learn how to play... That's a big deal for many people. Fairly easy control while still maintaining sophistication.
The WoW style combat system simply put is unintuitive and yes, user unfriendly.

Exactly, they added little to the same old mmo combat system. No innovative leap in sight i'm afraid.

Basically, I just wanted to stat what had been bugging me about this new mmo. It's been genuinely bugging me when i'd watch a development video and the bioware staff are so "This couldn't be better!!OMG!!".
Yeah.. basically getting that off my chest, not looking to achieve anything.

When did I mention the Crysis engine? More on point though I mention Mass Effect because it's the best combat i've ever played in an rpg and it was made by Bioware.
I basically think even a slightly broken down/simplified version of the ME1 combat system would be an "innovative leap" in mmo combat.

Maybe I should this theory foward at Kavars corner?

Seriously though, thanks for the replys everyone.
