I have been interested in GW2 for a long time. I think it is going to be an amazing game. But the only thing I'm worried about is the combat. I'm not sure what games you all have played and I know some of you might be haters of certain games. But the reason I'm worried about the combat is because to be honest, WOW is the only one that has done it right.
When I click an ability in WOW, I "feel" the ability. When I played Warhammer, or now playing SWTOR, I just can't stand the sluggish combat feel. An instant cast feels as though it take .5 seconds to animate and another .5 to affect the target. When you throw in the GCD it takes forever. In WOW, for instance, when I spam icelance, I feel as though it is casting off. I'm not sure if any of you agree with me, and that's fine. I just know my feelings and others that I play with and they seem to agree that there is just someting "off" combat.
Another reason this is such a huge issue for me is that GW2 is for focused around pvp, and this sluggish feel really is a detrement to the flow of the game.
I'm sorry for rambling, I just really want this game to be great, and this starts with making us, the players, feeling as though our character can do what we want them to do.
