I'll agree with you there, that there are now situations which require some thinking...
About two nights ago, I attempted a R40 with a thaumaturge buddy at Broken Water, and SE had kindly put a heap of Diremites in the vicinity. While handling the Devilets that were part of the levy, I was constantly flicking and rotating the camera just to make sure the diremites didn't wander into range...
We also experimented with Battle Regimens, and noted that patch now has a message telling you whether it succeeded, or which attack didn't chain, resulting in failure.
Then last night, I was in a roaming leve party, and everything was far more organized than before - people started using target indicators, party chat was buzzing, and generally we just had a good time :-)
