I know you wish really, REALLY hard for people to agree with you on this, but for the vast majority of players who are actually familiar with both games that's absolutely not the case.
Time to accept it and move on, maybe.
Also, as we discussed a million times already, if the issue with controllable reactions is that "pop ups look clunky" maybe an area of improvement should be precisely to improve in how they are presented, rather than just automatize everything.
For the most part, I agree, but my paladin was annoying in Solasta after awhile. Every time he hit, popup window. Smite 1, 2 or 3? Or cancel? Yeah. That got a bit annoying.
But MOST reactions and such in Solasta were quick windows. Click. Gone. Super easy. Hardly slowed down combat at all.
