update! i talked to toonces about this in-game, to insure he knew about it. of course he didnt.
he was surprised to learn that dex is important 0.o which i find strange, since he almost always has max dex everywhere. and i think it's hard not to notice that all top players have max dex... even if you dont play the game.
anyway, i explained how crucial dex is. and how discouraging it is to newbies who inevitably choose the wrong stats. and of course, toonces got the wrong idea from my information: equalize the value of wisdom, dex, and charisma.
this is so not what i meant at all. i guess increasing the effects of wisdom and charisma would be fine, but i told him that dex would always be more valuable than the other two, because high dex is essential to being a good/decent invader, fighter... and runner. and there arent a lot of cases of top players not doing any of those things. being able to defend(with fighting) and retaking your colonies is almost always a necessity in order to move up in the sge world.
toonces seemed to like the free chara recreate credit option, so hopefully he'll patch that in. and my attempt to keep newbies from quitting wont turn into a huge stats mess o.o
