AC's combat wasn't anything like that though. AC's entire combat was basically sliding around casting spells that would near one shot people and landing 2 or 3 of them consecutively before they healed for victory, with the difficulty being the other person was also sliding and you couldn't lead spells since they autotargetted so you basically needed to dodge for longer than your opponent, or shotgun them. Oh and melee was just autoattack with autofollow and hoping you could win in time, which most of the time you couldn't anyway so everyone just about was a mage unless playing group pvp where melees could actually get things done sometimes.The melees look like trash, but garbage animations and Asheron's Call combat aren't dealbreakers if the PvP mechanics and combat is legit.
That said, Mortal Online 2 closed beta just went out to a few people recently.
There's competition in the marketplace for Crowfall to contend with. IDK if Crowfall is going to be able to hang.
