A Simple Question about The Secret World… June 18, 2012Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, Misc MMOs, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The Secret World has a beta test weekend this past weekend. I have seen a couple of posts up about it. From them I have learned that there are essentially three weapons disciplines, melee, magic, and firearms.
The game is set in the modern world, so firearms are pretty much a requirement. But has Funcom gone the SWTOR route? When two people with firearms face each other, is it a matter of tab-targeting and standing there toe-to-toe blasting away?
Because that pretty much killed SWTOR for me. Even Star Wars Galaxies was more complex because, even though you stood toe-to-toe, you did have to actually aim your blaster.
So what is combat with firearms like in TSW?
In the absence of data, my mental model for this is The Matrix Online, and I hated combat in that game.
