Whenever you let go of the mouse pan button in warhammer, the camera (slowly) recenters itself behind your character. If you hold control when you let go of the camera it will stay there, but the moment you try and turn your character or click on an enemy it will (slowly) recenter itself again.

Did this drive anyone else crazy?

I totally agree. I've sent in so much feedback about it.

From what I remember, panning was also a pain in the ass in DAOC.

There is a whole UI beta team that is working right now at making custom mods for the game, i wouldnt worry.

Also expect to see an option in the settings in the near future to turn the snap back feature off for basic UIs.

Panning is easy, but getting it to stick is difficult. I'm hoping they change this in the near future.

DAoC had amazing panning what are you talking about?

I think we will see some huge UI changes over the next month. Especially with how easy it is to play with the UI yourself. I love the UI Editor!!! love

Actually panning in daoc afaik was pretty straight forward and let you keep the camera wherever you looked. You could bind a key to reset the camera as well.

Now in WoW by default the camera does return to its default position, this can be changed if i recall to be more like in daoc.

Guess they didn't learn from Daoc's camera, they should use wow's setup

From what I have been told there is an option in wow to unstick the camera. I don't see why that would be so difficult in this game. Just one little check box . . .

I like it better....it's more realistic (Hello, my name is 8-man Joe and my head is turned permanently 180 degrees) and now I don't feel like I have to cheat and macro a Camera Reset+Face macro on my N52. angel (Oh, having to hit three buttons just to target somebody and nuke them is awesome!)

I agree with the OP. This drives me nuts.

Happily, there are TONS of us in beta sending in feedback about it. Mythic has been very responsive to feedback; the UI is constantly being revised based on feedback, and the UI is highly customizable. I'm pretty optimistic this will be resolved.
