    Not what I was expecting

    I am into action combat mmo's like Tera, Dragons' Nest, Guild wars 2, and others. So when I heard that action combat was implemented into Riders of Icarus, I got excited thinking I get to play another awesome mmo. As it turns out, they give you the option to do action combat instead of tab-targeting but it's basically tab-targeting. Only difference is you move your character around while attacking. Action combat is about skill and learning to evade and such. Yet in this game, even if an enemy is nowhere near you, you will still get hit. So that was a big let down since all I did was just go up an enemy and just spam skills which is very dull.

    Another thing is that the community seems to be lacking, I mean I was on the first server on channel 1 and I barely saw any other activity from other players. You would just see some just standing around with a rare mount or something as if they got nothing else better to do. You will even find some at the beginning area just standing around, and it is the same and the big capital city. Players you do see are just standing around and for a huge city, you won't even find any players around, just in one area which seem like a plaza or something. So that was another letdown knowing that there must not be much to do in this game.

    Other than that, getting mounts was interesting and was looking forward to getting me a cool mount. But if the overall game itself felt dull, especially the combat system. Then to me, it kills the joy of trying the game any further. I think if they just kept it simply action combat like Tera or Dragon's Nest, then maybe the game would have a lot more popularity.
