Wonder where your Attribute points are going?Follow

You may notice when an individual stat is raised to 40 it will cost 2 attribute points to raise it another additional point.
Do not submit a support ticket, this is not a bug.
Believe it or not, this is intentional (god only knows why).

Why give a player more points, but raise the cost of a single stat?
Why not just give the player the same amount of points and keep it 1:1?

You may, like me, be dumbfounded at the ridiculousness and pure asshattery of this system.
Common logic would dictate that you spend one point to get one point in return.
Not only is this system convoluted and frustrating it also causes confusion:

The statement:
"Put two points into STR"
Can then mean:
Spend two points and get one point of STR
Spend four points and get two points of STR

In what world do you spend two points to get one point?
Like many of you i was left to discover this on my own when a "Oh, by the way..." was warranted.

So, im just passing along the info, customary rant included.

If this is the kind of thing that is rant-worthy to you, then you have totally picked the wrong game to play.

Once the stat passes 80 it starts to cost 3 points to raise up by one. Guess you better quit now.

I hate so many things about this many...I really do. I'm sure I hate this game as much as the next person, but this? This is not a problem. This is nothing but good old/standard RPG diminishing returns fare.

Well, at least we know someone's never played manual stat allocation RPG's before.

Never played point-buy D&D apparently. There is a perfectly good reason why after a certain point costs go up. It takes more of your characters potential to raise your already high strength than it does to improve your subpar intelligence. This is represented by increasing the cost.
