They've announced that they plan to revamp the combat system, but we don't know any details yet. We'll just have to wait and see.
When have they said they're going to revamp the combat system? From what I can tell, they'll be tweaking it slightly, which in my opinion isn't enough.
I won't bother going into why it's not enough, as there are countless other good explanations of why the combat system is unrewarding, and not fun.
Now if they were entirely overhauling the combat system, I may have something to hope for, but tweaking damage numbers, and stamina costs just isn't gonna do it for me.
There once was a tiger striped cat. This cat died a million deaths and was reborn a million times and was owned by various people who he didn't care for. The cat wasn't afraid to die... One day, the cat was a free cat, a stray cat. He met a white female cat, and the two cats spent their days happily together. Years passed, and the white cat died of old age. The tiger striped cat cried a million times, and then died. It never
came back to life.
