I keep seeing this posted bery now and then, and I always seem to find the same answer
"team radiant does not want to give that option because it would feel like it would optimize the game".
I can see this point, my main complaint is this.
I have had several succesfull civilizations, and in these, everything is ok, they all seem to have a patters of citizens, but it always comes down to certain aspects and traits.
I always try to re-roll until I can get something I am semi-satisfied with.
My main gripe is this, late game, I end up not being able to fight off enemies because I did not have specific classes designed to do the job they were assigned to.
I still keep getting people with 1's and 2's, and I basically can only have them as workers.
The problem is, that at the begining, I usually have aplan as to how I want to organize my town:
1 mason- blacksmith
2 fighters/1 archer or 1 herbalist
This is the build I always want, and it bugs me a lot that I cant get this easily.
I always reroll until I can get something that more or less resembles this party (never succeful to a degree I like, I always have to compromise and give up)
This aspect makes me want to just not start the game sometimes. Its frustrating to not be able to start form an aspect that you want.
I think the random aspect should be the quirks the little hearthlings get. Maybe sokme are neurotic? maybe it limits the tital hearthling score (6,6,6 the perfect build, cannot happen. I want a firgther with 6 body, 1 intelligence, and 4/5 spirit, thats it, I want to be able to CHOOSE where my starting base is)
I keep getting massacred, and have to start all over again, because I cant organize my town from th ebeigning how I wanted, because I cant chose the appropriate citizens for the job.
I want to be able to choose passions, 1 trait, and points, maybe limit the ammount of points, but please, let me CHOOSE where I can place them.
It gives me a headache to not be able to start in the way I want.
