I was hoping that a new thread might do it... a lot of people seem to "skim" threads they've read the start of.

I've known this practically from the beginning, one of the dev logs said they were ditching priority in favor of point buy...

Its point buy, but its not like anything we have seen yet. From what I gatehr a starting character gets between 300 and 400 points (this is from a friend at Origins).

They may have of course changed this by the time the book gets released.

I am still hoping they didn't just double ROF on guns just because the round is now 6 seconds.

This is part of what I mean. The round IS NOT 6 seconds. It is still 3 seconds.

Well unless they changed it in the last two weeks, the round is 6 seconds.

You have been privy to outdated information. It was one option being playtested, but using 3 second turns was the option taken (the decision is certainly more than 2 weeks old) - and that is why people who've signed NDAs shouldn't leak stuff they're privy to under any circumstances even less so before its finalized.

Sounds like we need another new thread titled, "It's 3 seconds" with a subtitle "SR4 rounds are not six seconds!".

I would say they changed it more like five or six weeks ago. Either way, I can also affirm that the combat round's duration will be three seconds.

I read the 6 seconds from the origins thread. I did say that it may have been changed. I don't read all the threads here nor do I follow you guys (freelancers) around on the boards so I miss things when they have been updated.

And I am glad they changed it :) give me hope.

You know who gave that "6 second" information? I'm gonna tell you: Rob Boyle. In the Game Trade Magazine article. So better check your facts before accusing the wrong people.

At least a minor diety if not a major pantheon of his own. Let's kick him and poke him with sticks to get v0.4 BeCK's.

A trickster god, spreading suffering.

While this is usually a viewpoint I've derided as based on false assumptions, with regard to chargen as far as I've seen we really don't know anything significant about it—might want to wait on that before planning an alternate system.

Or have I missed something?

Nope, I just like BeCK's. Haven't seen what the new system is, obviously, but what could be better than BeCKs????? 8)

An excellent example of why the game designers should, and do tend to, keep as tight a lip as possible on details during development.

Also a good couterpoint to those who kept saying the devs didn;t listen to playtest or fan feedback on stuff...
