because what you are using as a defense of Larian's choices are the exact words used against Bioware when they made the original BG RTwP. The "wider audience" being all of PC gaming, not just niche RPG players. That is why BG was such a remarkable success, and yet the majority of arguments against BG and BG2 are that they aren't turn based.
so it's funny to witness the cognitive dissonance in action. "you guys" literally split hairs to try and keep sense of your arguments. it must be exhausting.
I don’t get it. Turn based vs RT is a thing, Height and Backstab mechanics another. You have noticed that both share the same goal. That’s good, but sharing the same goal does not mean you either like them both or dislike them both. With this logic you should either like every type of food or no food at all, because both share the goal to feed.
As for splitting hair, this is a forum about BG3 and this a thread about Height and Backstab mechanics. So yeah, we’re talking and talking about it.
