It's still a stat roll though, so even with a ton of Charisma you could roll a 3 or a 1 and the other dude could roll a 20, and good luck even with a +7 modifier then.Well, if the part everyone's quoting means that disagreements between players are resolved by stat checks and dice rolls, yeah I can see it being a bit annoying or anticlimactic sometimes if you're just forced to do the others bidding then.
But, it's probably still the best way to resolve such cases.
Well if they don't like losing arguments they might want to have rolled a character with higher charisma. This is actually pretty interesting. Looking forward to see whether Larian can actually pull it off.
If you're rolling a 3 or 1 all the time you should get ready to punch out the DM, I guess. Surely the dice won't fall wrong all the time.
It's all moot if they don't give proper consequences though, nice as the system may be it means nothing if having the higher charisma guy win out only gives you +10% gold reward or something. Something like the heroic dumbfuck paladin successfully convincing the party into an ambush, getting them all slaughtered and losing hours of progress, is always funny.
