signs of an unbalanced mud.
When you could build chars stats out of proportion everyone was a 550 hp dex mage. When magic was out of wack when this system first went in...everyone was a cause mage with a little dex thrown in for good measure. Now, take a look around and every player is a str fighter...they are everywhere Clearly the players know something is giving them an advantage. I'm not sure what it is that is making it beneficial to be a str fighter...maybe it is bash, but in any event something is clearly out of wack because the overall number spread of characters is leaning way towards the str fighter side. I personally still like magics best... always have...but when I go into a fight against other people or group with a large mob killin group...it is strength fighters and healers all the way. I think that is the most po iwerful indication that maybe a little bit of unbalanced abilities are present in the current system.
I should cut and paste.
