I liked the other kind of battling, it gave me more of an excited feeling, but this one's great too~ There should be an option or an extra bonus area allowing you to fight like the old style (I heard you were going with this?) I understand that this mode reduces lag, which is nice
I like this combat style the most. The other 2 makes it a bit hard to hit the enemy, and if there will be party battles in the game it will be quite the chaos (4 ponies and who knows how many mobs running around the map). This style has so many opportunities. Front row, back row, more advanced party play, etc. You should definitely use this style!
