PangaeaACDC Posted July 27, 2016 Share Posted July 27, 2016 Some people will always find ways to exploit something in games, your typical extreme min-maxer (plenty of examples in the builds sub forum). Doubt that constitutes the majority of players, however, so I don't think the best solution is to kind of design the game to limit that kind of playstyle, while also limiting it for everybody else. Okay, so some people will rest after every fight. Some people did that in BG too. Personally I like to keep adventuring until I basically *have to* rest. That means not blowing all the top spells on a couple of xaurips, but preserving them to more tricky fights. Could mean going to rest almost dead with loads of spells left, but that's how I like it. Despite resting infrequently, I actually dislike only having two camping supplies (on hard), because it means I can't pick up others I find. Admittedly it's easier to play like this in Pillars, because pretty soon you will have per combat abilities on several characters, but I like that you can play the game in different ways, and I dislike games where you are forced into a certain playstyle, or where you only can save at rare checkpoints and such. For people playing the game more normally, ie not extreme min-maxing and such, I think the game is pretty well balanced the way it is. Fights could be more difficult in general, as I often fight then on autopilot, doing the same every time, but I wouldn't like it if the developers catered too much for the extreme min-maxers eithers, as it might become too difficult for many others, possibly myself included. Seems like no matter how difficult a game is, people will eventually find a way to solo it with a level one cat or whatever. There are things I dislike about the game, but not really the class system. It's more about the incessant and overly long loading screens, the disappointing stronghold system, underuse of party interaction, too few party members, some disappointing companion missions, the binary form of factions -- things like that. Oh, and that absolute bastard that is laughing his balls blue at every goddamn inn! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
