It was not invented by Larian for DoS. Successful implementation of great turn-based combat in DoS by Larian simply qualified Larian uniquely to finally give us what we've always wanted, namely, real Dungeons and Dragons on the computer. Finally. I recently was considering purchasing Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Once I learned it was RTwP I wasn't going to purchase it, but then I found out that turn-based had been implemented and I bought it and had a great time. I can never go back. I realize that others may have different opinions and I respect that, but I couldn't not make my case.

And I respect your preference, because I also reject any RPG that is turn-based as being complete crap that I will not waste my time playing. The only reason I am still engaged with this game is PURELY because it is titled "Balder's Gate," and if I ever did buy this game I would still very harshly criticize it and review it poorly for the TB combat part of it.

XCOM 2 is an awesome turn based RPG, actually its mechanics are better than this game. Personally I would prefer they stay with turn based rather than RTWP. I reserve RTWP for RPGs like Mass Effect, or DA:I. With this games mechanics, I just don't see enjoying it that way.
My point was that boycotting games cuts both ways. People can boycott games because they won't play RTwP games. But I also get to do the same thing by boycotting TB games.
