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?

World War II Online, Planetside And Huxley are the only 3 I can think of, and the last isn't out yet.

If you're looking for fanstasy MMO's that have real combat intead of auto-lock and button mashing then you could try Dungeons and Dragons Online or Age of Conan (out later this year)

the action in COH/COV is a lot faster than WoW. GW is pretty fast too.

Dungeons and Dragons Online is the only MMO out with good real time combat.

Age of Conan is coming out later this year. You should check it out.

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

Heh, 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.
