    The new camera system: What, When Where?

    So in Februari we all got to experience the new camera system of which Dennis has told us that these were the reasons why:

    Background
    For some time the MindArk team has felt that the existing camera and control system results in confusion for many new participants, along with frustration and unnecessary limitations for many current and veteran participants.

    Several existing features (for example, Next Target and switching between camera modes) have issues with consistency and undesired side effects on other features or systems.

    The current state of the camera and control system also imposes limits on many of our design ideas and the impacts the implementation of desired new features.

    A few months ago, in October, MindArk hosted a workshop at its offices in Gothenburg for 8 members of the community to test drive an early version of the new camera system and provide feedback.

    Goals
    Our overhaul of the camera and control system, focused on several important goals:
    Simplify and streamline the system by minimizing the number of controls and Action Library items required for the most common usage scenarios.
    More closely integrate the existing cursor and aim mode systems.
    Create a default control system that is familiar for new participants who are accustomed to “standard” layouts encountered in other popular games.
    Offer customization and key mapping for all new features and Actions, where possible.
    Retain as many existing camera and control modes and features as practical: First-person mode, aim mode, third-person mode, keyboard shortcuts, etc.
    So now that everybody except returning players has changed their setups to change it back to what it was before or simply adopted the new camera system, this line intrigues me:

    The current state of the camera and control system also imposes limits on many of our design ideas and the impacts the implementation of desired new features.
    So what do you think will be new features and design ideas?

    When will they be implemented?

    Where will they be implemented?

    I read hope this is a step to combat sytem changes. Let's face it there is no action to hunting. It's stand in front of mob, pew pew pew fap pew pew pew fap.

    It would be much better if there was mechanics to it. Like maybe we can never get to a Destiny or Doom Style of gameplay, but maybe more like mega Man where there are attack paterns, where you can time moving out of the way of attacks and such.
    Still trying to figure this game out after 14 years.

    What mechanics would you guys like to see? Wouldn't that complicate things quite a bit?
