Re. the "ragin' debate," I still feel they may surprise us and use a combat system that is not RTwP but not quite TB either.
This was posted weeks ago, and it's just not possible.
You CAN NOT have a system where you combine different aspects so it's partially TB and partially RTwP... It really does have to be one or the other, because you're talking about how the player manipulates time during combat. I'm not going to go into it again, search the thread if you need to, but it's just not possible.
The camera perspective really doesn't matter In this regard.
