I also is quite a waste.  If the players are so lazy that
they can't type in "eat food" then they really shouldn't be playing.  As
my wife says, what's next, auto-attack?  What is the point of making
everything automatic?  Can't players do anything for themselves?  What's
next, auto-recall if you get low hit points?  It's becoming so that
players just hit one or two keys and watch their characters go.  Just a
little robot.


I am curious about event based systems, and I am wondering about what
people think is the best circle system.
