I actually like the race differences in 11 aswell. I mean sure I love how you can adjust your stats in this one to your taste but I wouldn't of minded if they did in 14 what they did in 11.
Yeah, I like how you can add points too (be nice if I knew what they did) but I like racial stats as well. Take the Elzeen for example, talking about how they have super keen ears and eyesight... why not a little bonus for bowed weapons or something?
Im not trying to open a can of worms, I just like racial stuff that makes the characters a little more unique in the sense of picking a race.
