But all you have to remember about (physical) combat is the simple formula of THAC0 - AC = to hit number.
Well, AD&D = D&D2 and after that they have gone back to just naming it D&D3, but I'm sure you know that
Agreed that it's a tad more intuitive with the attack bonus system, but the basic problem remains at least for me. Since those other systems are pretty much dead concerning a 'mass' market these days, it'll remain a dream to see a computer game based on them though.
