Aw man.. This thread had me excited until I saw the combat video on their website. I just can't do turn-based combat. It's so incredibly dull and unrealistic. The music is all fast paced and exciting, only to watch avatars taking turns one-hit bashing each other in lifeless animations. *What's this?? Suddenly I have a shield and sword in my hand!!* - Where did that come from? And what happened to the other weapon?? *Is that your war club in your pocket or are you happy to see me??* - I know it an inventory thing, but terribly unrealistic imho.

To me the whole turn-based experience is as immersive as the first motion pictures, where they played the silent scene with charged music and then flash the subtitles of what just happened after the fact.
