In that method, rolling an 18 was very rare. Even when it switched to 4d6b3, an 18 was still fairly rare. So having an 18 put a character in an imaginary little elite club.
When people started using PB and buying an 18, that imaginary little elite club became a free-for-all that anyone and everyone could enter.
People use to tell stories about that one time Bob rolled an 18 - it was an event. No one tells stories about that time Bob bought an 18.
This so so so so so much.
Ah, got it now...someone talking about getting a good stat through rolling is badwrongfun. I wish someone would just put a list together of all the badwrongfun so I can reference that and learn more on how to ridicule others for doing things on that list.
