I remember creating a party for half a day for each playthrough of the original games. In these times this was fun to me.

Today, well… that would take me a week as my playtime is limited. So I don't like it either. A good solution for this remake would have been to make all rolls at once and then be able to distribute the rolls to the attributes freely.

There are several "schools" about creating a character.

"Point & Buy" is seemingly currently THE fashion in Role.-Playing, even TDE 4th Edition adopted it. Before that, it was dice rolling.

There are actually people who love that. Mostly min-maxers and number crunchers.

I'm not so anal about creating characters. Takes me like 3 minutes to create each character in RoA. Sure they're not Superheroes, but most of the times it doesn't matter that much after a while.

As Alrik said, there are different schools
And I am a minmaxer / number cruncher. I don't spend hours doing it because it is so fun, but because I would feel bad if I didn't.
If I only spent 3 minutes on a char I'd feel like playing with gimped characters. Like if you run around in Skyrim with just one leg. And every now and then I'd ask myself "Do I really want to go on with this gimped character or just start over?" I would never really feel comfortable playing.

I am not sure how leveling is done in the HD version, but this was also Pain in the ass in the old game so that I basically reloaded a couple of times for each level up to get decent results. Don't want to have a Warrior who has less HP than the Mage - which could very well happen with this character system.

I'll make a news-bit about it later for those that are interested. Thanks Joxer.

Another patch how many does that make now? I was right waiting for the platinum release. I have a feeling there will be one I'm not kidding.

I'm reminded of this old saying, "You can polish a turd but it’s still a piece of crap".

Maybe it's not a turd, I didn't go past character creation.
But they should skip addressing glitches temporarily and concentrate on making things fun and not annoying.
