In the current state of the game, collision detection might just be more trouble than its worth but if they're adding FPS mode then it might just be kind of cool. Plus, can you imagine flying those hand-gliders in HoT in first person mode? Must be awesome! I wonder what's it like doing jumping puzzles in first person though...

I think they're improving it, because currently it's a bit of a mess (get some fall damage from the same place a few times, notice how inconsistent it is?).  They may have to improve it for the new air combat/flying mechanics.

"UI vertical and horizontal positions"?
Does that mean we'll finally be able to adjust the UI to our liking?

It's giving me a BF4 vibe, where you can change the extensions to which your HUD reaches.

They also just confirmed a collision detection update is incoming.

Dat FPS while on 1st person in WvW DOE.

To be honest, they keep claiming they've made huge back-end changes.  My hopeful self is thinking we may get better optimization/GPU bound/DX12 support.

Anyway, everything at the event went really well, and I can't wait to talk about (and show) all the stuff I did over there. Like I mentioned above, I'll be posting everything on March 3rd when the embargo lifts.

Awesome, were you able to answer the questions asked here, or are hints also part of the NDA?

I certainly hope EQNext isn't his only claim to fame, because in my book working on an over hyped game that isn't even in beta yet is hardly an accolade.
