D&D combat is an abstraction of real time combat that uses rounds to facilitate multiple people sitting at a table, not a single player video game, which is one of the reasons WHY RTwP was chosen for BG.
Yes this is exactly right. And its logic is something easily understood. So when TB fans refuse to acknowledge this fact, there's no point to any further discussion because obviously there is an agenda at work.
Maybe Bioware believed that's how D&D was supposed to be played (source?). Or maybe they thought that RTwP would sell better in the market as it was in the late 90s? Both?
And just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done (that's logic)
And agenda you say? Be careful The Freemasons have nothing on us.
