i have a question about combat in general, so ground- and space-combat:
how does the aiming work at all?
first of all.. from my experience with other MMO's its mostly like "select target - click ability - rolling dice". i guess in space theres theres a coop of the ships comp (targetting system) and the mix of officers (specially tac and ops), since it was meantened that its at a slower paste.. so correct me if i'm wrong here, or do we have to manually aim at it?
and second, i'm still trying to figure out how the groundcombat works technically, since they called it "fast and intense".. is it like a regular mmo like mentioned above or is there "real aiming" involved like in a 1st- or 3rd-person-shooter? or a hybrid of both like in age of conan or something?
PS: its just that i dont want to see another star wars galaxies or jedi academy in another costume (specially when it comes to dodging or jumping, yieks)..
