    This should be in offtopic not general, but other than that, why would it be locked? People discuss other games all the time

    A comparison between controls to another game should not get this locked in the General area. But I've seen stranger things. How is the combat compared to DDO's run and slash. I heard/seen video about stand and fighting

    Most MMOs release an area of content once and very rarely is it ever updated. The reality is DDO has very good graphics potential and can easily make use of the latest graphics hardware.

    Can you get in Beta without buying a founders pack?

    I logged on to SWTOR yesterday and revved up ol' Flan Solo the Smuggler out of boredom and remembered how much I hate the feel of the movement.

    Side note - I doubt this will be locked but I'm sure it will be moved to "off-topic".

    You can sign up for the beta but the only guaranteed way to gain access is to buy a Founders pack.

    There are a few threads on the NW boards that talk about DDO too. Makes sense really.

    Does the 'have to stop moving to attack' thing feel weird, Shadus?

    remove a steak from a dog's mouth

    then give it feed

    it would like it more than the steak, is the only it has

PS i'm not a pro, maybe if i reincarnate in RL...

    I love the fact that in this day and age of gaming, you like to be forced to stand still, and do NOT move, in order to swing a weapon.

    It gives such a great feel of.... turn based in real time. All while everything else just moves/dodges away from you laughing at your lead feet.

    Granted maybe it is just standard MMO which means as soon as the attack is engaged, it doesn't matter if they are next to you or 3 miles away. You are hit. Why do we love that? Because it is so realistic man!

    Eye candy is great and all... but I just cannot get enthusiastic about anything that hews close to 4e.

    Which is why I've stopped trying to compare it to D&D. It may contain some lore, it may contain some similar named concepts, it may have the logos and licenses behind it. I find if I try to compare it to D&D I end up disappointed. So I prefer to compare it to other MMOs it would be competing with like Guild Wars 2.

    Character creation in that game looks like something that crawled out a dogs butt.

    Combat looks okay.

    I don't mind 4th edition, and always felt it would work better in an MMO, but still, pathfinder/3.5 are better (so I am waiting for pathfinder online, and still like DDO a lot).

    My main issue for combat is that it requires you to stand still.........honestly GW2 looks better than that game (and probably is better).

    It does look pretty, but it also seems like it would take a high end computer, which half the time I do not have, so less accessible.

    Also, I really hope there are more classes than that at release, otherwise the game will be boring as hell from too few classes.

    And the biggest issue: female dwarves don't have beards
    Ckarlock Alarm (PDK bard 7 fighter 6 rogue 2) life 17
    Dragonbloodz Power (Drow sorc 20/epic 8) life 6
    Sorinsal (Drow rogue 20/epic 5) life 2

    Or the inflexibility of being cornholed into a class. With a fighter I can easily change from tank to full bore DPS, but with Neverwinter you pick Guardian (tank) or greatsword figther and once that choice is made the only way I can play around with a different type or role is if I create a whole new different class.

    Controls are terrible, customization nearly plain 0, all in all terribly dull ... really sad to say, but that's how it is, and coming from someone who really enjoyed the original game and had some expectations on the new

    Combat is like hit left mouse button watch all die around, if you strain yourself hitting keys simply speeds up the process

    All in all ... unworthy, very
