I'm oldschool, I always liked this luck based component in the DSA-universe. :) I don't remember if it requires one of the patches or if you can change it in the menu, but "Blackguards" offers the opportunity to see the "dice rolls", so you can always see how much luck or bad luck you had. Yes, it's frustrating if you lose with a 90% success proababilty, but hey - that's life. ;)
Leroux: My gripe with it is that it seems so random and luck based at times. I'm stuck in the first Blackguards in that battle where you only have five rounds to achieve a certain goal, and that time limit would require tactical planning, but every time I try it the scenario plays out differently; a spell that worked last time and has a high chance of success suddenly fails and does nothing at all, and at that point I could just as well restart the whole battle, because it costs me at least one round of the already tightly calculated time. And it happens all the time, as if a chance of e.g. 80% actually means 50:50 (or even 40:60). Is this normal or am I doing something wrong and there are tricks to better deal with this?
Btw: Is the battle you are referring to the one where you have to stop a human sacrifice? If yes - that really was the hardest of all battles in the whole game for me, and I needed many tries and much dice luck to finally beat it ...
