Just like on this forum: just when you think something really stupid has been written, someone comes along with an even more stupid post. :roll: And yes, it usually has to do with trolls. :wink:

When someone makes a trait and gives it a name, he should explain why this name for this effect, Ather. If you have read some of my posts, you know im usually against wesnalistic ;-) arguments.

Makes sense to me. They're so stupid, they don't realize that they aren't being paid enough. Ogres and Trolls like shiney gold pieces too.

Trolls are stupid, and they have quite low XP to level. Therefore, they should have a "Stupider" trait that functions just like the Intelligent trait does for other units. :wink:

I think that trait isn't needed at all. A stupidity trait wouldn't change variety (since it would only replace the intellegent trait for trolls) but it would need rebalancing.

What would add variety is to add a stupidity trait but keep the intellegent trait for trolls. However the option of being stupid + smart at the same time sounds really stupid to me.

After all calling someone stupid or intellegent is really a subjective matter. Thus from an elve point of view trolls are stupid or even more stupid. From a troll point of view some trolls are normal and some are intellegent. Its a question of the meter used.

I don't think trolls get intelligent now, anyway...

You don't need to give trolls a "stupid" trait to show how stupid they are.
I speak what's on my mind.

Which is why nothing I say makes sense.

I don't think that was the point of the trait. The point of the trait was to create an interesting new facet of playing with trolls.
