Personally I prefer the turn-by-turn combat in BG3 over previous BG games. It gives me hard start and end of turn points in time, which lets me spend more time planning combat tactics instead of just letting the combat play out on its own. With the old pause system, it felt like I sometimes had no control over characters as they'd start doing their own thing after I gave commands. I know that you could tweak this, but why go through all of that hassle when turn-based combat eliminates that specific headache?
its literally one button to disable the AI (for ur whole party btw) like holy fuck dude such a hassle
