But I swear the chances are the one displayed in the battle itself, so if you failed with 90% success chances you really had bad luck!
Yeah, but that's the way RNG always seems to work, and why we both agree that hit % is a bad thing. The added insult of spending a huge delay on giving the enemy a free attack on your MC just means I'll never bother using social talents again. There isn't much reason to anyway, the combat system is (mostly) perfectly functional, unless you've over-leveled and broken it.

No I was very careful to not touch the combat balance at all :)
And yes, in future I want to remove RNG. Mind you, people seems to love it (all roguelikes, card game like Slay the spire, etc) but personally I always hated it, even in XCOM when you have 98% hit and you fail... sucks :lol: so I understand and I agree completely. In PS2 there won't be the RNG with the non combat skills anymore for example.

Cool side effect of the millisecond of character portrait fix: if you fail an arena battle and try again...

Spoiler:
I like the new epilogue, it was good to have a flashback of a pleasant moment with some of my favorite characters, I felt it was a real 'human' moment for Karen. Although im curious if you'll be adding onto why the lizardmen were after Karen, personally not too worried about it as I can generally come up with my own explanation on why they hated Karen and/or the Amazons but it seemed like that was what you were trying to do with the epilogue before. :)

Yeah,
Spoiler:
I think for now I'll leave it unexplained but what I said in the replaced epilogue still stands, the lizardmen worship Chzulu, and they know Karen played a big role in defeating the undead forces. So that's clear why they want to capture and sacrifice her (or maybe eat her alive? :o :mrgreen: )

Are they even acknowledged by the other races as intelligent creatures or they are like murlocks from wow?

Yes of course but the problem is their language that is very complex and very few races beside lizardmen can understand what they say.
