    Yeah, Kotor's combat system was a d20 turn based system. It was just really prettied up, but was little more than Neverwinter Nights with lightsabers. ToR, like WoW, will be real time. There will be abilities and "spells" that are instant and can be performed while moving, ect. Only real difference that I've seen so far from videos is that there is no autoattack in ToR.

    Kotor's and ToR's combat system will be like night and day.

    Given the lack of auto attacks and it often being a generous portion of a lot of classes damage, I'm hoping combat might be more exciting that way. Also when it comes to pvp (even though it isnt a central focus for me), the fights might last longer.

    I'm very curious to see how no AA works out in the end.

    Meh, I bet most people will simply bind their standard attack and spam it while their main abilities are on cooldown.

    But it could be interesting. Have to wait and see I guess.

    Did you or Boogdud even play Kotor?

    I don't know why people are expecting Bioware to create an innovative combat system. When did they become known for this or expected to do this?

    Yeah, I played Kotor. 7 years ago. I expected maybe a little upgrade in the combat department. It doesn't need to be 'innovative', but something at least entertaining would be good. I mean Mass Effect wasn't all that innovative but I found the combat sequences quite fun. Also, ME2 was a very good leap imo over ME in the combat.

    I guess I maybe expected too much. I didn't expect it to look exactly the same as kotor. Which it does. I suppose if that's what you were looking for you got what you wanted. So that's cool.

    Edit note: After having said that I do agree with Mild Confusion about the narrative being the primary focus and I'm fine with that. I really like what bioware does, and I'm just as interested in that part of the game as I was with combat.

    No offense dude, but this is silly goosery. I watched that and all this talk of visceral combat seems like just that, talk.

    Like most RPGs, SW:TOR looks boring to watch someone else play, but I'm sure it'll be exciting to play yourself. I mean, seriously, you talk about WoW combat like it is the shit and I almost fell asleep watching that video and that was fighting the Liche King (from what I understand, that's pretty new and kind of a big deal).

    I'm just saying, until you play it maybe hold off on assuming you know how the combat is going to be?
