I really need to get around to trying Nehrim one of these days. You guys make it sound pretty damn good.

It also potentially diminishes the joy of exploration, for you know what you find won't be especially interesting.

But seriously, I can't believe anyone would try to make a positive argument in favour of level scaling in a thread based on a fantastic overhaul mod that simply annihilates that system.

I don't know how anyone could try to claim that the degree of level-scaling in Oblivion was ok. It obviously wasn't for most people, and that's why we haven't seen it since. Vanilla Oblivion was, imo, the worst of the main TES games by far.
