Except that with a priority system, you're trading points of one for points of another.  Yes the values are different, but they're still trades.

But for it to be a trade or trade-off you would have to be forced to have one or the other, but you can have both Skills and Attributes at level 4.
And again Skill points and Attribute points are not in anyway similar.
Skill points are spent in a progressively climbing cost where Attribute points are 1=1.

But the bonuses you derive from those Attribute points aren't 1-for-1.  You need a 4 to avoid a penalty, 7 to get +1, and 10 to get +2.

?
One Attribute point buys one level of Attribute, and Attributes don't apply penalties or bonus in MW2.
Two Attribute are added together then subtracted from 18 to get your base target number.
Attribute only normally go to 6 never 10 with the normal max being Elementals or Pilot who can get a 8 in Body or Reflexes only respectably. You could possibly get to 9 as an Elemental or Pilot if you took "Exceptional Attribute" but the expenditures for such a choose would leave you pretty lean as a character.
Not sure were you are getting all the rest of that.

Exceptional Attribute explicitly mentioned that it was for base phenotype humans only, and whatever potential it represented was already present in Clan phenotypes in their special bonuses. So, for MW2 RAW, there was no possibility of getting any Attributes above 8 for anyone.

I stand corrected.  :thumbsup:

Ah, I see... we were talking past each other.  I was talking game systems in general and AToW for examples, you were talking MW2 in specific.

The pdf version is MUCH cheaper.  Any particular reason for the need for a hard copy?

Hard copies are easier for people with bad eyes to read, and it's easier for many to flip through a book to find something than to use a phone or tablet to get it.

Edit- And sorry about the delayed response. I don't check forums as much as I once did.

No worries, and those reasons make sense.  :)
