I'm no world level RTS player, but I'm decent at games like AoE, AoM, Rise of Nations, Total War. I enjoyed them a lot too. What about you?
That said, I don't know how bringing in RTS games in here proves anything. If you gives each of those 200 dudes 30 spells, 10 types of potions, 5 special abilities, 6 item abilities, a bunch of spare weapons and rings and belts, I bet you'd want to be able to pause the game too. On the other hand, if in BG2 instead of controlling 6 dudes I have to control 200 dudes but all 200 of them are exactly the same "click-and-basic-attack" meat shield minions, while having the ability to keep spawning more of them from some base, then chances are I wouldn't need to pause either.
This argument is so effing stupid lmao.
Both BG and BG2 must be tedious beyond all hope then, because generally you have to pause a lot in these games. *Google "best RPG's of all times" lists" => *BG2 at #2-#3 in all of them*. Yeeaaahh riiiight. Boring as #$&@. Well you can keep hating. This whole series's got enough fans all over the world, we don't need you.
PS: remind me why you're here again?
He was responding to the argument that people who do not like RtwP can't micro manage by saying he have been playing games successfully where (high speed) micro management i very important. "30 spells, 10 types of potions, 5 special abilities, 6 item abilities, a bunch of spare weapons and rings and belts, I bet you'd want to be able to pause the game too." yeah, playing a game like this real time would be insane, wich is why turnbased is much better for it.
Some people have said when you make a party, you make a bunch of mele guys and archers, then have 1-2 mages that "you" control, while the AI can handle the others because they have no abilities requiring thought (there are hopefully games where this is not a thing, im just saying what I have experienced, but my exposure to RtwP games are a lot lower then for others in here most likeley.). This is also how I have been forced to play these games, wich I find so boring. I would like to play a cool mele class like in Divinity Original Sin 2, but instead im forced to control the mage more then anything else.
