RTWP doesn't really add anything other than creating the possibility for players to mess up micromanaging their party by not obsessively pausing, at least that's what it's been in my experience.
This is nonsense. If you are "obsessively" pausing every split second, then at least be honest and admit this is your personal failing and not one of the system, because the rest of us who like RTwP are not playing our games that way at all.
