Yeah I got the same deal actually. Haven't played since ages ago when I tried YO and found it lackluster.

Hi James, I've not properly tried combat yet apart from with a bow. Gonna try soon and will report back how it compares :)

Clunkier, slower and lacking some mechanics that would improve it. I have a feeling that it was left slower and clunky just because they couldn't get the performance/net code optimized enough for the game to handle faster combat. Lag doesn't help it either, the mechanics make it so you don't have the type of back and forth duels you would in Warband/CRPG, due to stamina etc it's more like hit and run, or at most a few hits before you back off to regen stamina.

 It's not bad considering it's in a very unique game, but just don't expect anything amazing from the combat. Some abilities you unlock at certain tiers are absolutely useless and there are no features like "kicking" to help dictate the distance of a fight. I have fun with it but I wouldn't compare it to Warband/CRPG much at all, beyond directional attacks. Blocking is based on aiming your weapon at their weapon while you block, it's directional but not in the same way Warband/CRPG is.

hmm interesting. Thanks for the description leesin. Does sound interesting but I might wait until they perfect that system a bit more. Videos I've seen of it make it look a bit clunky. That being said archery and cav don't look as bad.

Doubt they'll work on combat system much more than this. People have been asking them for Warband style combat for quite a while and I believe they said it's not feasible.

Yeah I don't think the combat will ever really improve in complexity or fluidity, I just don't think the game could handle it performance and stability wise, or they would have done it already. Being a Lancer might be fun, but it just seemed a bit boring to me. I would probably enjoy archery more personally.

That being said not a single experienced player has ever had anything good to say about Longbow though, only bad. You have to spend so many points in Str and Agi just to use it that you'll suffer elsewhere ( mainly in Constitution and Willpower I guess, for more health and more carry weight ). Everyone has said the Composite Bow is best as it requires less Str and Agi, still hits as hard as a Longbow, but has the range of the Shortbow. Someone pointed out you probably wouldn't hit much at the ranges that Longbow offers anyway, so it has far more cons than pros.
