Anyone else want to fix the annoying camera? I dont want it to automatically follow me from behind when i am running forward. I want to be able to target enemies that are behind me
While running forward. This camera just wont allow it and i dont see anything in the settings! Help!

I'm not sure if this helps, but if I want to look behind my toon I hold down the left mouse button and pan around. This allows me to see behind my toon. However, I have not tried this in combat. It may be different there.

I find it extremely annoying but as of now there is no setting to change this.

I guess we just have to live with it for now. I do hope they will implement a fix for this in a later patch, its gonna be really annoying when pvping...

So either rotate the camera with the mouse controls, or zoom out so you can see the mob behind you that you want to target.

Call me dense, but I fail to see the problem with it as those two options seem to cover the requirement to me.
No, really! I am telling the truth, honestly! Look I can prove it, I am a politician! I am as honest as the day is long!
Besides, I am a terrible liar, everyone can see when I am lying - my lips are moving... oh damn, err, that last comment was off the record, right?

Really? Do other MMOs even allow that?

Never seen someone not allow the camera to follow them...sounds like a good way to not do well.

The problem is when you press button to view behind you, it automaticly swings back when you release said button =)

Option to not swing back please. Talk about annoying.

and those who think it's good as is, don't comment.
It's a trap!
