Anyone have a Light

I need some clarification on LIGHT. I understand it's harder to hit enemies in dim and dark light, do THEY have the same disadvantage in hitting me? I would assume they would, but they must ALL have a LUCK score of 30, or my RMG Sucks. 'Cause to me it seems like they have a targeting laser on their weapons. "I know, I know, I'm just being facetious here".

Serious question though... Should I try to stay in dark or dim tile and try to have enemies in light areas to have best advantage? 

Thanks for any info

Cheers Devs / Players

Kishar.... Thank you for the link, read through the info, Got more insight as to lighting rules and implimentation. So the bottom line is: Try to stay in dim / dark and enemies in light? Yes? Just trying to understand, in order to set strategy.

I don't want to come off as "simple", I am not a DM, read any iterations of DND Rule Sets, or how many different sided dice are needed. Gawd love you people that can recite these rules by heart. Always like to use the "KISS" method. (Not a dis on DND nerds either)

Again, I appreciate the info

Cheers

That's it. Light up your enemies stay in the dark yourself. Sometimes eg with melee only guys you have to pick one - run up with light to let you and your allies hit more often but be more vulnerable, or just stay in the dark with dark enemies to drag the fight out. Perhaps you can leverage the darkness better eg with magic missiles and save spells.

If your enemies have superior dark vision they don't care how illuminated you are, and I think if they are light sensitive they get disadvantage in bright light (not sure how to test this properly with early access)

The effect of the rule changes seems to be that enemies get Darkvision, players do not.
