Turn-based or RtwP or something new?
 
So what would you prefer as a combat system in BG III?

Ripper June 11th, 2019 14:30

Gotta vote something new. It's what I kind of suspect, and I actually wouldn't mind seeing some innovation in the ways RPGs can play.

I wouldn't mind if it was sort of like DKS ;)

Hastar June 11th, 2019 16:25

Wonder if they could do it like POE2? Have both. My favorite would be turn-based for hard battles and RtwP for trash mobs and easier battles. Would most likely take too much time to program both from the start.

Maylander June 11th, 2019 16:33

RTwP for me. I really enjoy Larian's TB approach, but there needs to be more in the name than just the city and a few references. If they're going for a completely different style of gameplay, protagonist and era, they should have just called it D&D: Insert Fancy Title.

Edit: Which is one of the reasons I was so disappointed with Torment. It really has nothing to do with PS: T beyond a wall of text here and there.

I'd be very interested in hearing some speculated models on what the "something new" could look like! Interchangeable TB and RtwP as Hastar mentioned? An Arcanum like hybrid?

As it stands, I have no real preference but the idea of a D&D game going back to its turn-based pen and paper roots and connecting to the heritage of the Goldbox games is an attractive proposal to me. Maintaining the RtwP tradition is also a perfectly acceptable system that I'd be more than happy with that as well.

I'd prefer turn based, but I wouldn't take a pass on the game if they go the pause route.

Hastar June 11th, 2019 20:33

I'm just happy a 5e D&D game is being made. Either combat system is fine. When I think about it, I have played ToEE more than BG1&2. So I would go with turn based as first choice.

Of course it's the modded version of ToEE with the Circle of 8 modpacks. Also, their Keep on the Borderlands mod.

Kordanor June 11th, 2019 20:44

I'd prefer Turnbased.

Something new could be interesting (pulse based RTwP for example).

If it's normal RTwP I am not going to play it. Already skipped BG2.

Marios June 11th, 2019 21:02

Turn based most definitely! Just like regular P&P and hopefully without a gazillion of trash mobs…

Arkadia7 June 11th, 2019 21:18

Turn-based all the way. Please, please, please, Larian! :biggrin:

Silver June 11th, 2019 21:30

I think Swen has been inspired by Copper Dreams. I expect an action phase and a tick phase.

Dez June 11th, 2019 22:27

There is an option missing.

REAL TIME (no pause). ;)

Corwin June 12th, 2019 00:43

Those last two would be an instant fail for me and a definite NO BUY!!!!

Yep that's how I play my RPGs. Barley use the pause function.:gorath:
Sad to see turn-based is somehow the preferred choice for modern RPGs.

Well, there is still the games like Elex and Outer World. They are doing fine in real time (without pause) :D

Thatís the preferred choice on the watch where most donít play modern games.

The rest of the internet wants dark souls combat.:p

I didnít vote. Iím fine with RTWP or TB but i wouldnít buy if it was like DKS or diablo.

Couchpotato June 12th, 2019 03:47

Yeah I'm just being a tad nit-picky that's all. As I also love either type of combat but usually find myself preferring action based RPGs more then turn-based nowadays.

Morrandir June 13th, 2019 00:59

The result so far is quite surprising to me. I thought that we get something like a 60/40 split in favor of turn-based.

wiretripped June 19th, 2019 12:50

Voted RTwP, since that's what the originals were in and where my preference would go, but wouldn't mind TB either.

No-buy if it's anything like a Diablo clickfest (though I don't think they'll go that route).
