Odd that they made adjustments to the chaining system but didn't say anything.
Not to derail on the "other" of my personal crusades, but did you see how people on reddit reacted when someone made a thread to inform them of the new keybinding? A large part of the comments was "Oh thank god", "this makes things a bit better". "I don't really like this system" etc.
And we are talking about a place where people would cut their own arms if Larian said that they have too many fingers to enjoy the game.
Yeah, I saw the reddit thread - you got name dropped also. haha.
I think the Chain system is in the same boat as barrelmancy in that it's something that Larian - or a faction in the company - wants to fix but they don't want to talk about it. I suspect that people are sentimental about these things but they are indefensible systems.
