I have been playing the past few days and I have noticed that the Ground movement of your character feels clunky.
My roommate pre-ordered the game as well and he says that the character movement feels like you are holding a Doll on a stick and moving it left and right while only moving your wrist (not the entire arm).
IMO one of the best MMO games out there that had great character movement was EQ1. It wasn't clunky or buggy.
I guess my question is, does the Developers plan on smoothing out the ground character movements? The ship movements feel fine, but the ground movements are rough.
