RE: (TFT) Variants = flavor of the age

> I disagree.? . . . if you select one person from a race of half-giants and
one person from a race of gnomes, 99.9% of the time the half-giant will be
stronger.? Even more subtle differences exist that are cultural or even
related to a person's sex.? In my opinion, and this is also not represented in
Melee, but I think that some races should be superior to others in every way,
not just one or two statistics.? An average elf, for example might have better
stats in every category over an orc.

    The difference between ST 10 and strength of eleven is huge.  Staggeringly
huge.  Gi-normous.  Would you accept that everything you said is true if it
existed in the invisible space between 10 and 11.  Genetics does not create
variations within one species as large as 8 points.  Human beings are shaping
themselves in the forge of their weekly routines and it's balance of physical
training, practice, and study.  This is closer to a cultural or LIFESTYLE type
of result than a genetic one.  Whereas variations in height, weight, and
metabolism are probably evident at a smaller scale.  Fractions of a point.
Hundredths, maybe even thousandths of a point.
