Please read previous posts in a topic before posting, this is backwards logic, I'm not going to explain why this makes no sense yet again.
Small party = worse for replay value, think through it logically and if you're struggling the actual logic for it has been gone over many times, twice in this thread alone.
It has nothing to do with a "perfect party" or "perfect playthrough" or passing every skill check.

I'm not going to read hundreds of comments a day and plumb the depths of every post, most of which are weak or entitled takes.
I saw the topic, I shared my thoughts on it. It's not invalid because of how the thread has progressed, nor is it invalid because you don't agree with it.
In short, deal with it.

I don't want to fall to bits 'cos of excess existential thought.
