Yeah grat tactics are shown in images in this post.
You really don't have to use any of the stuff shown in those pictures to beat Tactician difficulty.
We haven't done any of that (and no stealing either) and we still do fine.
You keep referring to those pictures, and that is really not a good argument imo, because again: You really don't have to use tactics like that
What those pictures say is that the AI could be better at times, not that Tactician is borked. This issue is present on all difficulties
While I agree that Wits could benefit from a rework - to me it's in a very awkward place right now
I also agree that the difficulty isn't without faults, but to have a real discussion about it, it doesn't help us at all to be overdramatic.
We really need to separate between the two meanings of exploit
- "make full use of and derive benefit from (a resource)" - Casting a heal on an undead enemy
- "make use of (a situation) in a way considered unfair or underhand" - blocking the AI so they lock up and don't fight back
That is two very different ways of using the word. (What is what is also subjective, my examples are just my view)
I think most of us agree that we want more tactical depth and not having to rely on cheese or fringe skills (like mass thieving)
