Interface/Controls Question

How do you keep your camera from automatically going back to the default position facing forwards when you're trying to look behind you?

When I left click and look behind me, as soon as I start moving my screen goes back to facing forwards again. I can't find the option to keep it from doing this and would appreciate some help.

Hold down your right click button and move with WASD to keep your camera facing wherever you want it.

It's a little FPSish, but that's how I like moving around.

The only problem with that is you have to move wherever you are looking. Being able to look behind you while running is extremely useful in many situations.

I believe if you left click and move the mouse, you can move the camera independently of the direction you are moving. At least it works whlile you're stopped - the camera moves but your character does not change facing. Not sure if the camera snaps back in place when you move.

There is no way to disable the smart cam. (in every other mmo on Earth you can)

Pray for a fix.

PvPers notice this right away and it's very annoying to try to target someone behind you while running away from them.
