I really doubt a combat revamp without making another new game.
Currently Playing: Dawngate, LoL, FFXIV, Random Steam Games
What the hell is a Pwarp?
I didn't realise it needed saving
Not sure why WoW needs to be saved. Hell, I'm not sure why people are demanding they change the combat to some action style gameplay when every action style game does substantially worse than WoW and tons of players return to WoW after getting bored. That's why GW2 pretty much fell off the planet after all the hype while people still talk about WoW.
Runescape playerbase dropped a lot with evolution of combat (system).
... That moment when you realized that your bath towel is covered in sawdust.
Also, remember the last time a good game tried to revamp its systems to be more "modern"? Think back to Star Wars Galaxies and the NGE. A giant ridiculous disaster that destroyed the game. It's like people forgot about that. Changing the entire game fundamentally serves no purpose other than to alienate your entire playerbase in a vain attempt to please the vocal minority who scream how outdated the game is.
I think only one person said that the game should have action combat.
When I speak of modernizing I mean something a little less drastic.
Like bringing WoW's controls/combat up to par with other games that use the tab target system.
ArcheAge for example is based on the same system WoW uses but it's evolved for about 10 years, which in the tech world is a veeery long time.
I'm not sure what modernization the combat system needs. WoW's combat system has largely been lauded as one of the tightest, most fluid systems out there. People feel in control of their character. Compare that to similar but flashier systems of combat like SWTOR where players complain about being locked in animations and not being in control of their character. Hell, I'm playing ESO now and the combat there is janky as hell compared to WoW's.
