I dunno ... im still not quite convinced, cant say i would be "against" random encounters ...
(especialy if they would be optional, as Icelyn said ... note that i say "as Icelyn said" not "as Maximuuus said to Icelyn that she can reduce the % by tediously travel elsewhere" ... k?)
Its more like i just dont see any point for them to exist. :-/
So far i just dont have even the slightest feeling, that Larian is planning to restrict our resting in any way ... and adding random encounters would only force (or more like push) me to rest even more often, wich would only make the game more tedious for me, bcs my personal main focus is story ... :-/
I gues im just V in this scenario:
