When will they do another beta? I really wanna play this. I still think a SWTOR prequel would have been awesome.

Whyyy Bioware, why?! Why would you make such a huge, deep Star Wars MMO then ruin it with the most boring combat imaginable?! Everything about this game looks good but the combat looks like absolute shit. Everyone stands in one place while being shot at by blasters, so god damn lame.

And they expect us to just sit back and take it because "that's how MMOs are and you should be used to it"? What about all the new MMOs coming out with action based combat? And what about all the single-player fans you are trying to attract? Everyone is so blinded by hype for this game that they don't even see it, but when it actually comes out, I have a feeling you're going to have a lot of disappointed people on your hands.

I'm confused, how is the combat action packed? Because every now and then your character will automatically do an animation with his lightsaber to block an attack? What about making a block button and letting us time it and do it ourselves, or dodge out of the way with other classes?

Seriously, for anyone thinking this game actually has "action packed combat", go check out some videos of TERA where you actually have to aim your attacks, block and dodge enemy attacks, and enemies actually MOVE and you'll be as down on this game as I am.
