    @Wrooks why not make Attribute-change thingy a thread?

    If we're gonna talk attributes, then the root has to be hit.

    Meaning, what they are at a root level. Which is basically 'tiny incremental improvements' via both Levels and Items, both Levels and Items therefore carrying the element of 'stat-sticks.' So, improvements that give nothing but the minor statistical # improvement for progression purposes so that a Level 2 *insert hero* is better than Level 1. Or *insert hero* with *insert item* is better than without the item in a few nonessential #s coded in.

    Given that's the case, if we wanted to go to the EXTREME of it, I'd want Dota to either remove Attributes entirely, or allow the manipulation of what a single Attribute grants in terms of the increments it provides.
    (in an ideal world, I would never see them in 90% of the games they're in, but I'm weird)

    Since going with something like 'bring it to 6' is probably 10000% more within the literacy and structure of the current game... then giving Heroes a way of manipulating the things 'within' Attributes so they lean one way or another is more the route I'd see possible to take.

    Meaning... you'd have to re-calibrate what Attributes do internally, simplify them, and allow them to fold into each other.
    Have a Hero gain multiple kinds of each Attribute, but primarily 1 instead of 1 that gives multiple things.
    So each hero has 3 Ints/Agis/Strs for example.
    Example: Int1 give mana pool, Int2 give regen, Int3 give spell damage, and when getting an item that gives Int3, a portion of your Int1/Int2 will convert. Or if leveling, a Hero having some of each at a base (starting with 22 Int gives a blend of each), the Hero can move some of the Int from Int to another Int.

    Some junk like that.

    If you're gonna remold a foundation of the game, it has to be with a new system of structure (Talents/Innates/whatever else is coming to the game) entirely. Not just new Attributes, but something by the name of Attributes that functions a new way entirely to itself that makes it worth changing 'at all.'

    edit: there, this is the thread for it :p

    so you're saying that we should completely scrap attributes and replace it with a new system? similar to how talents replaced stat bonus? A simpler more user friendly idea? One that gives more manipulation of a hero?

    @1Frame_Dynamism
    The only idea to replace attributes is with an rng card system where you can draw cards that effect gameplay based on what card you have and what items you buy. Its a rough idea but basically you draw a new card every 5 mins and each card stays in play every 2.5 mins...I'm not sure its a rough idea. but it's very rng specific. I like your idea of replacing attributes but i also like the idea of revising them. 6 attributes can easily replace the current system by having heroes split among the 6 atts instead of dire (str, agi, int) and radiant (str, agi, int) or adjusting the current 3 to be rock paper scissors

    I was thinking about remaking my old kodo rider hero, and a magical influence aura that increases the spell damage amplification from intelligence was one component of that idea.

    More things that simply interact with attributes in a unique way would be enough to justify their existence in dota.

    I don't think Dragonscus would become a sub-forum of its own, yet I won't close the possibility. There should be, however, a contest sub-forum, where mods can approve submitted threads containing in-forum contest like the ones we're having now. As we are no more than a brain-storming collective (and we're not making ideas for the sake of implementation anyways), making subforums for the forum's organization and tidiness would be nice.

    @1Frame_Dynamism I think of stats as no more than a collection of attributes the original WC3 game mechanics made to simplify them. If we we're to remove them, we could have a possibility of heroes having a LOT of variations in their attribute levels. For example, Axe's stat growth would be put into Regen and Armor the most, Anti-mage would get more AS and Damage with less Armor growth, etc. Of course, this will mess up the established mechanics for attribute-centered heroes like Centaur, Silencer, etc.

    The next challenge needs to be based on recreating famous historical figures for the dota universe.
