Are there any MMO's with fully real time combat?
I just stopped playing WoW, I got tired of playing whack a mole. Are there any out there that are fully real time, no breaks in combat, just unadulterated action?
This topic is locked from further discussion.
The chronicles of spellborn and Tabula rasa both have real-time combat
TCOS is coming into open beta on the 22nd of April, at least that's the rumor, while TR is in closed beta and scheduled for release in Q3
I played planetside, found it lacking, probably because it's old :p
BUT, if I remember you can play planetside for free for a pretty long time, so it's all good
Eve OnlineFragMonkey09Heh, thats anything but real time action. I had my joystick all hooked up and got all pumped up to try the 7 day free trial only to find out its everquest in space. There are only a couple out right now, WWII, DnD online, and Planetside, with a few coming out soon. The biggest issue with real time combat and MMO's is server side hit detection or client side hit detection (depending on the game) is a **** due to lag and the amount of players swinging and shooting. I mean, you get a 32 player match going on BF2142 or CS and a few people with really high pings and lagging out it can be a mess, try doing that with a few thousand players. Even 300 players it can be really really awful (planetside client side hit detection.) Turn based combat that 90% of all mmo's use is much more forgiving and a lot less noticible.
