On quotes about pathfinder they adapted turn based due to player demand because it was preferred to real time with pause which showed in kingmaker and was later carried into path of the righteous due to majority preference....
Show me evidence that it is the majority preference for P:WotR. There is zero such evidence. Yes, a sizable group wanted it, but majority? Sure.
Even with BG3, surveys show the TB preference is a majority but not overwhelmingly so, about 54-46%.
And, a preference is exactly that. A preference. Something subjective. Someone's preference does not translate into whether or not something works well. If people prefer TB over RTwP, that's fine. But don't try and tell me that subjective preference equals TB "works better" than RTwP in some objective sense, because that is blatantly false.
