Holy shit no, just no! I Choosed BDO for it's action combat system, if you want a tab targeting mmo play something else for the love of god... like literally 99% of mmosRPG are all tab targeting go play them instead of suggesting to completely destroy the only truly enjoyable mechanic left in BDO.

BDO's current "Action Targeting" is great for its melee, but leave out a lot of fun for ranged dps. In real life, a person with a bow/arrow, doesn't have to be 100% facing an enemy to shoot at them. Pfft, a 13 year old kid with a baseball can throw a pitch that goes over 100 yards, all the while looking at someone on 2nd base (Hey, ever steal 2nd base before?), and smash a car window because the back fence had a whole in it.

Granted, asking for realism from BDO is seemingly pointless, but asking for fun, or more options of fun should not be.

At any rate, to clarify, tab targeting, is using the TAB key (or some key) to cycle through and pick an enemy, from say many enemies, so you don't have to move your mouse over them and press a mouse click on them; or turn towards them. And the tab/focus targeting is where you maintain a "focus" lock on the enemy, even if you are not facing them, letting you know their health, again without having to face them, and typically letting you know where they are on your radar.

For a visual aid, I linked below a snippet of tab/focus-targeting, in a high action mage fight, where tab/focus-targeting is used. Notice how the combat flows smoothly, where the mage attacking does not have to turn/look at their opponent as they run around, or get into Welee range just to ensure their spell hits, but instead, they only have to focus on which spell they want to cast and the terrain they constantly run through. That's what tab/focus-targeting grants.

Must be a troll...

As expected, the melee hate gang showed up with the intent of having a Nazi Book Burning Seminar to express their HATE against anyone asking for more choice or expressing their ideas.

Keep your "Action Targeting", I don't care. Just take your trolling HATE parade some where else, when people are trying share ideas, and GOD forbid, ask for more options.

The game can have its current "Action Targeting" which is great for melee, and "Tab/Focus Targeting", as an OPTION, at the same time.

GOD get off your HATE wagons.

I think you are bad in this game if you need an aimbot in BDO.

But it HAS an aimbot built in ....  ..Or atleast what Consoles get that essentially Aimbotting  (Aim assist)

I've got it turned off b/c I can't stand that Crap.  I like the feeling of a real shooter when I'm playing Ranger/Wizard.   I ENJOY that it's possible to miss a moving enemy

Obviously no one agrees with you. What did you expect?  Tab targeting is archaic and people chose this game precisely because its action oriented...  like wot dude? 

Why would anyone want devs to dedicate time to develop a system that maybe a handful of backwards old farts like you would use?  How about the fix like 50 other things then, and only then, maybe throw in tab targeting.

Not thanks, the Tab targeting will kill the game & make is way easier for range class

In contrary, remove the "aim assist" and make it totaly skill based !

Isnt that the same combat like in archeage/guild wars 2?
Afaik those were huge disappointments.

Bless is also unsure where to go with the combat. Isnt there even an option to enable a more "action based" combat ingame?
Kinda makes no sense because it means the devs have no idea what to do and what to balance on.

Why do you want this game to change gameplay? You pretty much would want to ruin most players reason to play this game. Im sure there are alternatives.

Pick alternatives and dont try to change what a game already is. Its not like its hurting you.

don't forget RNG and the current pvp/class design

No tab-targeting and actually aiming stuff is good, but no one should pretend this game doesn't have a ways to go in the skill department.

If they do add this they better make it so the key can be configured to another key as not everyone plays using the standard WASD side of keyboard.

He actually asked for another option and not for a gameplay change o.O No need to burn the witch right away. Thinking that you will kill everything right and left just because you use a tab-target all of a sudden is a bit exaggerating, dont you think so?

one of the very few ways to fight high AOE ranged classes is to juke and dodge so they cant place an AOE on you.

You add tab targetting and what, AOE classes planting their skills on you 100% dead center 100% of the time? facing front back side diagonal whatever? and you think this wouldnt be broken as crap? more than already having the highest accuracy and damage multipliers on skills while being a ranged class?

get out.

While bdo combat has many issues, tab targeting is not one of them

The option is nice I guess but then what would be the point in making the combat boring?

The combat system in this game is what won me over to play this game and I'm hardly playing MMO's if I do it's this one due to the solid combat system.

Thanks Ling, nice reply. And EXACTLY what the Melee HATE Parade is all about. NO CHOICE.

An "option" will kill the general way of direction. When you have two options you naturally have to balance both, instead of fulfilling the primary job to design a good combat.
Thats why bless is -----ed up with the combat system

Two things are not always better than 1.

I'm going to have to chime in with the rest of the community and say not to Tab. There are plenty of those out there and if you want a hybrid action, tab play Tera.

It would be interesting to see a focus target skill where you nullified damage on surrounding targets for a damage increase on single, marked targets but it should still use BDO combat mechanics.

What are you talking about? in games you don't move the mouse to "look", you move to aim.

you can still look to the sides while aiming somewhere else, the game also works with e.g. 3 monitors.

witch/wizard even have target lock.

plus there is a key that locks your direction and only moves the camera.

it seems you just have absolutely no clue how the game and the controls work.

/facepalm....

In BDO, RIGHT NOW, one can press LMB and RMB at the same time, and move the mouse to "look". To do this, you must not be in combat mode.

Seems you just have ABSOLUTELY no clue how the game and the controls work.
