I've never been in favour of random encounters.

+1 bring back random encounters; travelling to another worldspace/to camp/between fast-travel points? %chance to get a random encounter mini-area!

A random encounters have never been an interesting mechanic.
If they are hard, you feel like you need to rest again.
If they are easy, it's just waste of time.
In the worst case, it will quickly become F5 + F8 before every rest or fast-travel.

I agree with you. I asked for this when I played DoS games and that never happened because: RPG?

In BG you could get ambushed while trying to rest and and that was about as close to a random encounter as you could get. In BG3 they basically eliminated that (for now so maybe they will fix resting/long resting) because the whole camp idea is just silly in how it's implemented. Camp needs to be where you are in the world and there are multiple threads on that topic.

As much as I'd love to have some ARPG elements inside of these games, I don't think it will ever happen (unless, like I said, they bring back ambush or something like it).
