I absolutely love this game! The pure essence of gaming. PVP that works. The first game that cured my AoC addiction (replacing it with another one). Haven't slept properly in weeks now. Am I the only one here? Shame it is on PS3/Xbox only...
I dunno if I found good pvp videos but it seems that fights are so damn slow in this game :/
Not at all. If you have heavy weapon (such as greataxe or Zweihander), you swing very slowly but have wide swinging arcs and can stunlock player, so it is commonly used in pvp. Movement can be slow if you wear heavy armor without enough endurance (nobody does in pvp). I would say you need good reflexes for PVP, especially for dodging spells and parry/riposte. Also oneshots are pretty common. But sure, you cannot run around super accelerated like a sin in AoC, the animations and weapon moveset is quite reallistic.
There are problems, mainly 2-3 very op spells, ring of fog item (noob killer), bad lvl scaling for str/dex builds - will be fixed in next patch
sometimes lags (you play often against japanese/us players)
Ofcourse, no mass pvp (max I have seen is 3 against 1+1 players and it is rare). It is a very different kind of game, absolutely unlike any other and hard to describe.
And still BF3 failed, how come . Sales wont prove a thing, SC will be remembered always.
But too bad console games sell more, we get more bad quality products, hope next generation consoles changes that. Unlikely....
