Couldn't agree more. I'm one of the people who think BG3 is really good as it is now but the chain/link/party is something that I just wish they would get rid of. I don't see it happening though...
Well, I don't see it happening either, given that I've been BITCHING about it for 10 months at this point, starting even a "megathread" about it (see signature) and in all this time no one at Larian would even vaguely acknowledged that some people have problems with it.
After all this time and with all the people that chimed in to agree that it's bad (both in that thread and in plenty of other communities) it's not even like they "didn't notice it". It's more like they are actively putting effort into looking the other way.
Which is a shame, because one of my dreams when this game releases would be being able to play it in its entirety without spending a lot of time HATING how it controls.
