Faster, more hectic, more abilities that are a MUST to use (Naga mouse makes this cherry.)

Like a lot of you, been playing 3rd person rpg mmos since early 2000's (Not counting EVE or UO which i spend many hours playing when I should have been working...or showering.)

Opinions?

Yes I agree, and love every minute of it. I love the amount of action, the flow of combat(especially enjoy it with the Lightsaber fighting classes) and find it a LOT less boring and repetitive than other MMO combat.

There are some tweaks that need to be done, definitely still some ability delay, etc., but overall the concept is terrific and I am very pleased that they have managed to capture a good deal of the excitement of Lightsaber combat in an MMO.

You haven't played many MMOs or are simply not good enough to notice that the combat in this game plays like an over cooked noodle.

With the global cooldowns on 1.5 seconds combined with lagged out animations and hidden delay I must say the PVP in this game is probably the slowest. I have also a naga but I think its fully possible to do good in PVP just by clicking on the spells in the spell book. You have like 2 seconds between every insta cast spell so its more than enough to flip pages and clicking the spells.

Stop trolling the EU. Fix the downtimes to the middle of the night and not in the middle of the morning / day.

^This.^ The 1.5 second GCD especially just makes combat amazingly slow-paced.

Well the 1,5 sec global cooldown might be slow but it does not matter cause when big scale pvp in ilum finally happens you only have 1 frame each 2,5 sec to cast anything anways :P

Not by any stretch of the imagination.
According to James Ohlen, Game Director: "We're also going to be listening to the community, and seeing what they want to see in the game. We always are listening to the community; you are the people who decide what kind of changes we need to make to the game. Because this game is for you guys."
