This from you? Doesn't this depend a lot on the expectations of the
manager? I haven't seen a roll-up yet that I believe you couldn't
set up and actively manage to a winning record in basic, (Only a
couple handfuls that I couldn't) and that's all many of the people
posting bad roll-ups say they are seeking.

It is not trying to run/win with that set up. You may well have
nothing left to learn about running all manner of warriors but this
simply isn't true of everyone. Besides, some people get more
pleasure from working hard for unexpected success with the ugly ones
than rolling over 80% of their competition because they only run
actual or potential exceptionals. It really doesn't take much
managing for a basic arena playing, blue moon tourney player, to
succeed with 21/17's or the equivalent. (And what's wrong with
Str/Ba/TP? This sounds remarkably like the composition of your

I do agree. But this balance will be worlds apart for someone who
wants to compete at all the levels of the game you do and someone
who is proud of his hard work to make a 55% W/L in basic while
running everything they get for 10 turns or more. Both are doing
what they want in the game and are worthy of consideration.

- It is believed that 17 str is auto good damage. Perhaps it didn't use to be and they changed it sometime after 1987. So after you trained str once it checked the 'new' damage matrix and said "hey, this guy should do good damage, give him a bump."? Just a thought.

What about this guy, Assur?
Classic old-timey Biff basher. TV'd with that in the apprentices in Tempe
last year... designed it in maybe 1987 and then it sat for over a decade...
And it only did normal damage on overview, had to train str. once to get
good, though 17/4 is often touted as an auto-good damage...
