As a dedicated melee player in this game, I have some concerns:
1. Where is the blue power glow of power weapons? I hope its comming, because for now I feel like in the Lord of Rings rather than 40k.
2. Dont you guys find a power sword way too short - its not longer than inquisitor arm. What the hell is that? Gladius? We all see how BL GW artwork depicts power swords - its all about longswords/hand-and-a-half swords. I really hope we will see longer variations on higher power levels.
3. Combat animation of 2 handed sword is terrible - I believe there is no chances we see something different for release? (ESO did it the right way, especially carve animation).
4. Power sword/axe swing sounds arent realistic - if I close my eyes, I can imagine wooden stick hitting a wet carpet hanging on the tree. That still could be changed and isnt too late - all the other w40k games got it better than we have here. Why not to ninja that from them?
BTW, from time to time I see people trashing the cover system - I, personally, find it great and very useful for my melee crusader. I jump in, slaughter, than retreat behind barrickades, switching to pistol, doing some quick shots on closing enemies while my health is regenerating and jumping back to the fold. It could be fun as hell (and immersive, because all inquisitors in all damn books love to hide behind the cover all the time, along with their henchmen). To lure in a stupid heretic and cut his head with one swing from the cover - what could be better for 40k fan?
