They're listening to the wrong fans. That gameplay looks bad. No one likes playing a spam spam spam game. The gameplay I've seen is full of magic flowing around, a bunch of spam attacks. That's not a fun a game. A fun game is one where you need to think.
For the record, "spam" combat isn't as dull as you make it sound.
Maybe from a PVE perspective.
But waiting on cooldowns to reset on special abilities by spamming attacks to cause confusion is an incredible strategy in PVP and can throw off your opponent easily. But it has to be done wisely, or you may miss your chance to link it to special attacks.
For PVE, I think it's always going to be dull no matter what you do.
After you "absorb" all the mechanics and "learn it, you'll just do everything automatically/without thinking regardless, unless you're playing an RTS game, where the AI of your opponents can overpower you.
Back on topic; I am not playing the current phase, mostly 'cause SE can't verify my credentials (Even though they're all exactly as they were). But the few friends who are playing the current phase, keep giving me mixed reactions.
I am hoping it all ends positive in the end.
