I enjoy an element of skill in games, but I think sometimes what we call skill isn't as much skill as it is programs people can download and ping. I loved, LOVED darkfall, but eventually found out that some of the players I thought were so skilled had figured out pixel detection programs etc and no company can fully keep those out of the game. With that said, as much as I loved darkfalls combat, I prefer something a little less of an exact aim as some will figure out pixel detection/bot/programs and then you have the ping issues, so I prefer more of a tera or BDO style combat. More of a larger hit box where a program isn't going to always determine the outcome and ping isn't as big a deal. It's so rare to see no lag in an mmo anymore, so that would be my preference. I will say, friendly fire makes it so aoe spam isn't going to win all fights, makes it so small groups can be large groups if planned well.
1. So aim to shoot yes, exact pin point aiming like an fps no
2. Friendly fire yes
3. Extra damage for attack in the back yes
4. Limited crowd control
That's what I'd like :)
