The combat is such a HUGE aspect of these kind of games everything else could be perfect if the combat system sucks the game will fail.
Terra failed because its questing system and crafting system is distinctly Asian in an American market. In fact the whole game is too Asian. Everyone praised the combat system from what I gathered, because it made the game less grindy and dumb, but at the end the grind got most people.
Hell I loved it. PvP would have been pretty grand with that combat system, but unfortunately I didn't get to that point.
Darkfall is a niche game because it's a full loot FFA PVP system. This is a problem because most gamers are carebears and hate getting destroyed and losing gear. The combat system itself is good though.
If your combat system argument holds any water, let me ask you this: Why did SWTOR fail, it had a standard combat system, a standard questing system, and by all accounts should have been a success. But it sucked.
