(and later) way of handling attack rolls and THAC0 and prefer the former. THAC0 has always been easier for me, the latter system seems to have a lot more situational bonuses and penalties that have to be tracked compared to earlier editions. Perhaps it’s just the way my players played, but they usually only had 3-4 weapons they used constantly (only changing them out for better stuff if they found it), so it was easy to keep THAC0 listed for each specific weapon (already adjusted for modifers that rarely change from combat to combat like magical bonuses and strength) and modify the number for the target’s AC and situational factors like spells and magical effects.
