Since it's somewhat related, here comes the completely gratuitous anecdotal story.

You know, I have a couple of friends on another gaming forum that are aware of this thread and at some point almost started teasing me about it.
We are talking stuff among the lines of "Just give it up, they are never getting rid of the toilet chain, lol".

But just in case someone at Larian may read this and think "See? Some people are on our side about this", here's the part that they should find a bit less amusing in perspective: these friends hate the current control scheme as well.
They don't care as much as I do about it being fixed only because they already gave up on this game, while conversely I still think there's a lot of good stuff that could be salvaged here, with few well aimed changes.

Party control in Baldur's Gate 3 is a complete mess that begs to be addressed. You too can join the good fight HERE
