Tactician Mode is way too overtuned. Every damn fight I can't avoid, takes me 2-3 hours of reloading saves in hopes I may get a lucky break and win the fight. Now I'm out of luck. I'm at the Flenser, I only have Autosaves from way back and every other save I have is at some other stage of that particular fight.
I've now spent more than 3 hours at that fight, it always ends with my utter annihilation and I have no desire to start the game over.
To my surprise, you cannot turn down difficulty at Tactician Mode.
Whoever came up with that idea needs his head examined.
Please do something about it. This particular limitation doesn't make any sense at all, it only makes our experience at DOS2 miserable.
