I am completely changed on this subject. Before Texicon I was unsure about the change but anything
to reduce the heavy reliance on Agility was welcome. I also trusted Jeff and Jack. V&V is a game of
beauty and they have gained a lot of learning from trying the V&V upgrade, Living Legends, and
engaging the players on forums. I have seen things we have suggested show up in V&V 3.0.
I understand the reaction to the word Cool. It is a word with 25 definitions in Dictionary.com
After Texicon I know exactly what Cool means. It means calmness; composure; poise: Cyclops is noted
for maintaining his cool under pressure.
To use a sport example, Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki are not more agile than any of the Thunder's stars
but there are multiple times they are first to the spot they want and get first action. Their poise
under pressure is amazing.
I really think that is the effect that V&V 3.0 is after. After playing the demo, I believe it works.
There are other changes that Jeff has not posted. How "To Hit" and Multi-Attack works keeps your
Agility based character effective and dangerous. You won't feel the change destroyed your character.
If you were a player that used Charisma as a dump stat and always took Reduced Charisma. You will have
to change your character and not do a straight conversion because Jeff really did achieve the goal of
all BC being desirable.
After the Demo, I am completely sold.
