    I think he is referring to making all of those actions on a single turn/round, not in multiple turns. That is why he mentions a 7th attack if the fighter has haste and an 8th with the proper bonus action, as those two things increase the amount of possible actions a character can make in a single turn. I guess it could be possible in RtwP if you pause after an enemy's death to allow the player to choose the next target without the enemy attacking. Also most RtwP game are not actually simultaneous even if they look like it, they are still following rounds and initiative, so enemies actions usually do not take effect before you finished your attacks. If we are talking about an hypothetical RtwP system without rounds, then yeah, i think it could work like that.

    But the game uses the vanician system of magic.

    I wasted my money on D.OS2 too. But was not on launch date. I had like 6 hours and din't got a refund. IDK why youtubers like shadiversity mentions it as "modern baldur's gate" when it is nothing like BG... The game literally has everything that i could hate in a RPG. Slow animations, battles that felt more like puzzles than battles, cooldowns, ultra limited range for weaponry, cartoonish graphics, progression becoming only number inflation(...)

    I have more immersion playing Might & Magic VI, with the low res "2.5d" graphics than playing 99% of modern games.

    I enjoy both good RTwP and good TB, and I've seen shit implementations of either system.

    Based on what I've seen from Larian since D:OS1, I expect I'd have more fun with a good RTwP implementation than with whatever they put out.

    No fucking way I'll support this disgraceful brand exploitation. Probably will try yarrr edition just to feel it myself but that's about it. On a second thought, if it somefuckinghow will turn out all around great game - then I'll buy it maybe even at full price (chance of becoming a great game is laughable slim anyway).

    For a player who isn't at ease with Larian's decisions and limitations, the only positive news is the 5e ruleset and the turn based combat (personally, I don't think 5e is so dumbed down as other people have said). If that's enough to float your boat, ok.

    But for me the rules sytem on its own doesn't guarantee fun combat, much less a fun game.

    The only way that could happen, is if we parade the devs through the corridor of shame, like Cersei Lannister. This is 20x times bigger than Mizhena, who destroyed Beamdog. We're literally in position to dictate everything to them.

    DOS2 has noticeable faster animations, didn't bother me, unlike in DOS1.

    I don't like LArian but could you imagine if was modern BioWare who made BG3? Considering the "live services" B$ that EA is into, BG3 would be another WoW clone like neverwinter mmo...

    Yes, pretending 5e implementation and TB are enough to guarantee a good game is like going to buy a car and only caring about the motor while the rest of the car is made of rusty iron, aluminum wires and duct tape. Theoretically, it could still work but at some point you start questioning if dealing with all that bullshit to enjoy the good parts is really worthy of your time.

    But that is the question, I dont buy a game because it is isometric, TB or 5e, I buy a game because I enjoy it, if the game sucks, I really dont care if the only alternative would be AAA garbage. I dont buy games to make political statements or support abstract notions like game genres, if the game is fun, I buy it, that is it, the future of RPGs or other nonsense be damned.

    Imagine you are married with a super model and she dies, then years later some necromancer dudes decide to ressurect her and wish to sell her to you again and say:
    "DeepOcean, yeah, she is a little cold, dont talk, has a strange smell and is kinda purple but she is exactly how she was on the past, true story, give us money. What is your alternative? Fucking Stacy? How are you going to find her vagina on that middle of that 200 pounds ball of fat and skin folds? You better buy our product.

    I feel like if a game isn't worth buying it's not worth playing. If someone's financial situation isn't the greatest then I'm just an idiot but for me at least that's how I feel.

    If it's this easy to convince idiots to buy a game then it makes sense that Larian is a successful company.
