I know it will slow down the game but I would love turn based since it reflects tabletop D&D games.
What do you all think?

The devs have already made the decision about what the combat system will be like. You can certainly share your opinions - what you like/dislike - but at this point, I believe the members who have been visiting the forums during the last two months have said everything they wanted to say, and more, about the TB vs. RTWP topic. You can check some of the older threads, if you'd like.

Yeah there are already a good half a dozen or so threads on this very topic.

I'm exhausted of having this conversation, and I feel that I can speak for most of the community when I say that as well. I too, would prefer a turn based system but - At this point, the most we can hope for is a game that lives up to their reputation as a studio, the series' reputation, and the reputation of D&D. Anything past that and half of us are setting ourselves up for disappointment, by definition.

I don't know what is left to be said until Larian started speaking.

Doesn't matter what you say next, I'm pretty sure you can't

You're right that he can't, but in this case I think he's likely correct.

I suppose it depends on which "community" he's claiming to speak for.

Seeing as how I was saying everyone's tired of the combat system speculation discussion and the conversation got deverted away from that immediately..... And this thread has been hanging in the air for over two months without anyone addressing it directly. It goes without saying that I did, in fact, speak for the community. There's simply no conversation on the issue to be had that hasn't already been had.

Guys, I think this is splitting hairs. I think we can agree that there's been a lot of speculation in lieu of actual details. And I dare say as more people arrive it'll keep the speculation going to some degree.

Even so, it's pointless. Both sides have made their cases - not that it mattered then either. The combat system has already been settled internally. There won't be any more meaningful discussion on the matter. Going to be a colossal shit storm across all the forums shortly after the official reveal though.

True. Games releases are always good humoured, family-oriented fun, especially the latest instalment in an established series.

Does that mean there is going to be an anouncement at Stadia Connet?

No, it just means I quoted Three Dog, because Fallout 3 is Teh Best™.

I doubt it I don't see them giving us more details until Balur's Gate: Descent into Avernus is released in September at least.
