Does anyone knows:
1)How many Acts are there gonna be in this game?
2)How many are playable in the current state?

This game perma-status as EA confuses me by how ahead or how behind things are with a finalized version of it
Well using all the shit we got datamined so far I can say that there will be at least 8 acts
1) Lizard sex act
2) Hot gnome sex act
3) That ogre and bugbear sex act
4) Act of astarion decapitation
5) More lizard sex act's
6) Shadow heart sex act
7) Downgraded drow sex act
8) ??? act.
Do lizards have a cloaca? Since Githyanki lay eggs.
Also do sex with those creatures, if done by a PC that isn't of their species, count as bestiality?
You gave it a lot of thought. I admire it in a way.
Lizards don't have mammal glands ( boobies ) so why would you?
Thanks for visiting my TED talks.

All the sex and romance was added to facilitate proper bard roleplay. It's locked for all other classes.

I don't know if you're joking, but it wouldn't be a bad idea. People (Bioware migrants) who want porn can just play a bard, while the rest of us normal people can play the game as intended - without degeneracy.

Do you really need a switch at the start in order not to pick romance options? At any rate, that course of action won't turn this game into something else. To experience the degeneracy IS intended way to play. If you aren't interested in that kind of stuff just look for some other game, honestly. Because what else is there? Casual gimmicky-oriented combat? Exploration of a static game-world? Say even non-romance interactions with endless quirky NPCs? The whole game basically is a critical role type of RPG session and romance/porn is where you draw the line?

BG3's gameplay experience without the aspect of romance is just fine.

Unfortunately, it's set in the D&D universe. What a waste of Larian's resources.

Dragonborn seem to have been datamined.

I'm more interested in bodies than heads, to be honest. Recently WotC started depicting them with tails (dragonborn never had tails before), and I wonder if Larian will make their dragonborn more like DOS2 lizards. I'd certainly like that, they are more visually interesting.

This new wave of furry garbage is infantile and embarrassing.

Popped open the main campaign file
Potential companions/camp followers:
Daisy
Helia
Minsc
Sylvira(? This guy?)
Karlach(That's the wounded tiefling, right?)
"Unnamed Drow"
"Den Leader"

I think the gnome you can save may come to your camp("Unfortunate Gnome")

Confirmed classes:
Barbarian
Bard
Druid
Monk
Paladin
Sorcerer

Confirmed races:
Gnome/Deep gnome
Dragonborn
Half-orc(? is this ingame already?)
Duergar, same as above

There's also a lot of references to alignment so it's something that WotC must have told them to remove late in development.
Also, I was correct. There's a lot of flags related to time passing/events happening on certain days.
Shadowheart gets captured and tortured
"dataminers" 2 years behind rusty, sad!

The original release actually had a large part of the game already btw, they started cutting pieces out when they realized people were actually going to datamine it. So a lot of "datamined" things in new releases are things you could have datamined almost 2 years ago. Again, the game was further along in development than a lot of people thought :M

It seems like you can’t really have a clean win with internet morons.

There was this thread where the topic “the toilet chain is garbage” came up on its own (without me mentioning first, I swear), we were all happily agreeing it sucks, and suddenly a bunch of nobodies has started to jump out of the woodwork to defend it in a concentration I’ve never witnessed before even in 50 pages of “megathread” on the topic:

https://forums.larian.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=819347&page=1

This is why we’ll never get good things.

Since people are datamining a lot, any homebrew spell, magical weapons and subclasses? I wanna play as an Barrelmancer!!!

Other question. Did people started to mess with throwing? How far a Barbarian with 20 STR could throw an gnome?

started being positive about the game

Larian did positive changes. The UI improved a lot and the biggest problem of the game seems to be fixed(not sure).

damn so stupid that I can use a basic UI control
Why don't you make me a video showing off how skilled you are at "using" these controls?
Do some less-than-basic splitting, moving around, repositioning, etc.

Let me witness first-hand to what degree you can be a fucking retard.
maybe your issue is that you're jacking off while playing? I suggest fapping less

I have never understood all this outrage and hysteria to optional Romance in RPG

Why would you care about LGBT or straight Romance if its optional? Unless games like BG3 are forcing you to participate in the Romance arcs?

Time and effort spent on it is better spent on other things- optimizing, gameplay, quest design et cetera.
Instead we get this.

Fair enough, I can understand that frustration because we all are going to have views on how resources should be allocated to a game

I have mentioned this before but BG3 is my most anticipated game of all time so I have been avoiding any serious spoilers and detailed early access feedback. So end of the day I will only really have an opinion on how resources have been used once I have played the game

But I am confidant that Larian wont let me down if I think about how much I enjoyed D:OS2

It just needs to be designed in a similar way to BG2:ToB or I will be disappointed

This has already been discussed to death. Romance in itself is not a problem, but it should serve the plot and setting, not the other way around, and having interspecies sex-orgies as a selling point is just pure cringe.
