Without reading all posts...'cause i can imagine a great deal of that discussion...i will always ask myself why gettting a game with TB combat and then wanting RT combat. Just because the older BG's titles were RT?
Personally i was more than happy seeing BG3 is getting TB.
There will always be people liking RT ove TB and that's to be expected but it is the choice of the publisher/developer.
We are still in EA so it is also to be expected that there are issues with the combat system as with the rest of the game. There are TONS of issues (even if it runs already better than most bethesda releases ;)).
Give. Them. Time.
Agree 100%. I love the TB aspect of it, but I also play pen and paper. I don't mind the length of battles, because it give me time to consider how I'm going to react to the moves and attacks that the enemy just made. There are some suggested changes I would like to see, but those are in other posts. In regards to this discussion, I purchased the game (in EA) with the expectation that it was going to be turn based, and that is exactly what I got. Larian was completely up front with that fact.
