So in your opinion what bogs down combat the most
My opinion, its people not knowing their basic numbers up front. One vetern players would calc his to hit bonuses every time he attacked.
Another is people being distracted by cell phones.
- People who wait until it is their turn to start thinking about what they want to do.
- People who don't roll their damage dice with their "to hit" die.
- People who don't know their numbers and have to "add it all up" each and every turn with each and every attack.
Note: I can understand forgetting a flank bonus or possibly a buff bonus. That's fine. But to sit back and have to add BaB, Str bonus (or Dex) pulling out fingers and toes then have to do the same thing again with an iterative attack is just maddening.
I have about five or six sets of dice in different colors (I gradually built up the collection) so when I play my melee guy, I roll ALL the attacks and damage (usually while the guy or girl ahead of me is taking their actions) and put it all together before the GM calls my initiative. All I have to do is confirm that I hit and give the damage. 20 seconds and done (just like sex LOLOLOLOLOL).
