I think I know why the mouse/keyboard controls feel weird.
The developers of this game tried to give the game PC controls similar to what League of Legends has. However the combat in this wasn't really intended for that type of control scheme. Your regular attacks have a range that can hit multiple enemies, meaning clicking on an enemy to run up and hit them isn't practical. You really need direct control of your movement instead of moving by clicking.

The console version of the game and the PC version if you use a control has you moving with the left analog stick while you aim with the right analog stick. So the game should have been set up with keyboard controls for you to move with the WASD keys instead of by clicking and mouse functions should have been restricted to aiming your attacks.

I'm seriously considering getting a 360 controller for my PC to address this issue. Playing with the KB/Mouse means I always end up in the middle of a AoE fest I didn't intend to be in. Although I'd be even happier if every darned game I bought on Steam wasn't limited to a 360 controller. My PS3/PC compatible joystick is a perfectly good one but apparently doing joysticks the old way where everything is supported is no longer an option.

i donno how this can be played with controller...make no sense..

Then you haven't tried, because in this unlike other MOBAs you are not intended to just click on the enemies. You have to aim your attacks. Some characters have wider ranges to their attacks so they can hit more then one enemy. When playing with a controller you aim your attacks using the right analog. When you play with mouse and keyboard it just makes you walk close enough to hit the enemy you clicked with no regards for whether or not your attack could have hit multiple enemies.

It's also how you attack efficiently since this game doesn't have autoattack the way other MOBAs do, you really need to keep moving and keep hitting the attack button which works easier on a controller.
