    Maybe you should go play walking simulators instead, I'd prefer if Larian focuses on properly implementing the source material and designing combat encounters.

    Too Chaotic and hectic just sounds like you're having a hard time understand what's happening.

    You mean a combat system designed for hundreds of units fighting is hard to understand when only a few are fighting?!
    Wow.

    Can you fucking autists please stop? RTWP is good because when you watch Boromir and Aragorn defend the hobbits in Moria, the entire scene doesn't freeze so that Boromir can make his move, thwack an orc on the head and then freeze in turn.

    Turd-based is for people who like numbers, not adventures, it's as simple as that.

    Why do you keep acting like RPG:s were ever difficult in any format? It's obvious you have never played competitive games on any high level because you actually believe RtwP is "complex" and/or "difficult".

    ah yes, I distinctly remember that time the combat paused every 0.5s in lord of the rings so that the person controlling them could stop and think of what to do next

    I like to play competitive aoe2. It's still kicking even though it's been around for a long time. At least the people in charge of that game know how to treat a series properly.

    Okay, there are two possibilities:
    - you actually can't read and you are unable to understand simple thoughts;
    - you are trolling and, being the retarded autistic that I am, I got baited as hard as possible.

    I am gonna try again: I don't find difficult to deal with fights in RTwP games, but that's because encounters have to be simple by design, because the system doesn't allow for encounters so complex that the player might be overwelmed (or, better: the system allows for such encounters - see difficulty enhancing mods - but such encounters would alienate a large portion of possible players, so most fights are kept as easy as possible).

    That's the last time I try to reason with you, because, if you still can't understand the point, either you are 3 years old or you are the most dedicated troll I have encountered so far.

    Any RtwP RPG worth its salt in terms of "difficulty" will sooner or later force the player to pause multiple times in a combat encounter to re-buff, choose new targets, re-position characters, whatever it may be. This bullshit about RtwP combat flowing seamlessly is frankly hilarious.

    AoE 3 was pretty bad, hence why AoE 2 is still popular. Nice try though.

    Sounds like you're the type of person who is making them dumb the encounters down because you've been bitching about it this whole thread.

    It got a definitive edition which is what I was referring to. And before that it was kept alive by modding. It's just a good game.

    You cretin should tattoo on your mongoloid forehead - "Larian apologist".
    I bet if Swen takes a shit on a table and sticks a BG3 tag on it, you would be the first to say that brown color is en vogue anyway and its putrid "savor" is an acquired taste.

    I wanted this thing but swen didn't put it in. Swen knows best, it must suck as a feature.

  18. why do we even need graphics?

    lets do the whole thing as a text adventure. :roll:

    it's the easiest addition in the world. add/remove light and change the ambient noises a bit.

    not adding one when you already have voice acting, modern graphics and sound effects seems laaaaaaazy.

    I've just noticed that almost all games (except a couple including Bloodlines cause.....vampires) on the top 20 best Rpgs of all times here on rpgcodex had day\night cycles.

    Those old developers are so bad, they threw out of the window resources for this useless feature.

    Or we can hold developers with 300 employees to some standard. They can add a little atmosphere since they're voice acting every single line. But if you want to be some apologist that takes whatever swen shoves up your ass go ahead. Just know that you're being cucked by the rest of his fan base that takes it all up the ass too.

    Larian could and should have implemented day/night cycles in D:OS classic. There was truly no excuse there, no shadow based stealth.

    Because they didn't want to add a day/night cycle that was purely cosmetic you fucking dipshit.
