Yeah I recon the actual responses IN the battle is cool..
Like when you get hit hard you actually get pushed back and so forth.
Rather than just both slashing at each other and seeing no response to the attacks.
also actual response to your directional slash is more immersive, rather than a standard fall-down /knockdown/knock-back animation sort a thing.
would like to see when your nearly dead a knockout rather from alive and kicking to instant death - obviously losing your head or stab in the heart that would be appropriate, but otherwise you would just exhaust and collapse. Then your team mate could rescue you wile your unconscious on the battle field sort a thing.
Even if this won't be a succes it's bound that all mmo's following will incorporate the good parts of all these innovations from different mmo's coming out.
Looking good for the future of gaming.
