1. I don’t remember clicking Deadspin! Which I only read for terrible soccer coverage.

2. Luck is amazing. It’s the stat of rogues and crit-happy folk everywhere. You know who has a huge Luck stat? Han Solo. You’ve basically posted an article ripping on Han Solo. I can see you, Greedo.

3. Vastly overvalued physical stats. Physical stats are boring, and I almost always play melee characters in RPG’s. Hitting stuff is easy. Hitting stuff and duping the nobles into giving you their family legacy is the real ticket.
