Traits in player.dat
« on: April 05, 2013, 17:19 »

Just a random little idea that sprung up in me:
Create a new screen in the show player section that shows the total amount of times you've chosen each trait. Who knows, since players get to see a statistical overview of their favourite traits, it may stimulate them to create some more variety in their builds?

Sure, why not?
But for some traits (juggler), it would have to span several versions for me to get a reading at all!

Cute concept, not sure how to nerf, so not going to try.  =)

We'll pester Kornel when he's back with us.

Speaking for myself, it would definitely make me try different builds. And, to motivate thelaptop's pestering, if this data could be somehow harvested, it would provide statistics that could be used to pinpoint traits that need nerfing =)
