Larian was very successful with D:OS2 so I can understand if they wanted to keep stuff from there.
Personally I did not like it that much ( inflating numbers, random equipment, the whole map full of necro fire after every battle ) and I never finished it.
So I would prefer if they stay closer to PnP rules.
Some changes in the last big patch are a good start.
