I don't understand the comments, I guess you're noobs ?
Tactician mode is pretty hard but not horrible, yes you have to reload if you run into a fight like a morron, when you're underleveled. If you keep dying on the same fights, well you are terrible at building efficient characters.

However, mods like Randomization can make an easy fight extremely difficult

I just finished a tactician run in 2022. It's broken without lone wolf. Sorry to say, but the game is not balanced at all for this mode, and there is actually a video of Sven (lead developer) saying they don't spend time balancing this. Play at your own risk.

A lot of cheese will be necessary unless you want to spend an ungodly time reloading. Abusing teleport pyramids to refill source, running out and back into combat, abusing enemy pathing, teleporting enemies to their death, etc. Enemies regularly alpha strike you into oblivion if you don't position your characters correctly. A lot of times you need to make sure the other three are outside of combat so they can get first turn hits.

Incredible game, one of the worst balanced hardest difficulties I've ever played.

huh? Its not the games fault that you choose a difficulty that you cant handle. Its a reason people play their first playthrough as classic or story. playing on tactical isn't even difficult if you have some knowledge about the game. challenging? yes, but you cant play like you do in classic mode. Your build and if you run 4 man squad needs to be synergized. Also you dont want to pick bad fights. abusing mobility skills, teleport pyramids, ranged attacks and and traps are the key to success. Also its many ways you can beat the game. civil abilities are also very importent to take advantage of.

Without lone wolf other things become more important such as high wits and having points in loremaster. Wits increase your initiative and you really want to act first. Loremaster allows you to figure out what the turn order will be before entering combat. These two things are very important for tactician mode. It's called tactician for a good reason, you need to employ more tactics than OP has probably thought of.

Here's the general mindset: offense is the best defense. You need to optimize your DPS and build correctly. If you're going physical, do not waste time going physical + spellcaster. Polarize your party into either physical or magical. If going physical you generally want to max warfare first for damage. Use that high wits and loremaster to prioritize the first enemy in the turn order. Ensuring your party can keep getting turns.

I hate to say it, but the game has been beat on tactician no LW with a lot of builds (no cheese).

I have to completely disagree with you. Tactician difficulty is far too easy. Mistakes are very forgivable. I'm obliterating everything in my path. I am at act 4. I see you don't even need to have strong items to do well. I have always items that are my level or 1 level below me. People make the mistake of thinking this game is hard when in reality they are just under levelled. There should be a difficulty mode harder than tactician for players who

The tactician mode is pretty hard. Any surprise fight could easily wipe out my team. I have to load a lot but I really enjoying it because every battle feel unique and I have to come up with new strategy quite often.

You should choose it only if you don't mind fighting the same battle again and again

I hate when games come up with stupid ****ing names for difficulty levels and then don't have a tooltip explaining the difference.

Yeah, the stats shown above should always be displayed on the difficulty selection screen. You shouldn't be required to dig up the details on the internet.

Tactician Mode is like Idiot Mode. My part was hit by a skeleton Assassin in the graveyard (Stonegarden) by 900 damages and the rest deals like 600 damages. They just literally 1 shot Lothe and 2 shot the rest of my party.
Yes, I did some positioning as many people mentioned but it is useless since the skeleton Assassin can teleport right to the back of my Lohse and it deals 900 damages to her :'(

I've been playing on tactitian with 2 friends and it's been a breeze, as long as you sort of know how to begin fights it's not very different from classic. tl;dr get rekt

tactician is literally free. Just finished and entire playthrough with only 1 character lol. You just don't know how to play the game very well and thats fine, but it isn't a problem with the game mode.

"With only one character."

Let me guess...Lone Wolf, the equivalent to baby mode in this game.
