That's exactly what I already said.

I - personally - regard (A)D&D as especially played "combat-centric" and/or the players do so.

Maybe they aren't used to *different* gameplay than that. It has always been so, it will always be so.

I have often the impression as if the European playing-style is relatively different from the american one in that it isn't so much focused on combat.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
