It's been what 12 years now and the combat system is still pretty much exactly the same. Stand in front of creature. shoot every 1-3 seconds until health is low, switch to first aid pack, heal, go back to shooting. It's so boring. Add to that the lag and stupidity of trying to heal and it wont switch and you die, monsters get stuck you can't hurt them but they can hurt you. So heave forbid you try to use some sort of tactics to not get hit like run around a rock for cover. Hell even if you have enough evade so that the mob doesn't hit you, the system thinks your "cheeting" so it becomes "trapped" and you have to wait for it to hit you before shooting. I dont even loose money that much hunting but i have not been able to b ring myself to do it for most of a year now because it's just not fun especially when you compare it to all the new MMO's out there. Entropia seems to have one factor that keeps people playing and thats the Casino factor, everyone thinks they are going to hit it big. It could be so much bigger if it was actually fun to play and not just a scratch ticket. Will we ever get a better combat system?
