There's a thought model / discussion going on among TDE pülayers about

- Bauern-gaming (Bauer = Faremer)
- Heldenspiel (Held = hero, Spiel = game)

and I persomnally got the impression as if this was like Mac vs. Linux or so. Or Windows vs. Linux. In short : Both play styles are more or less incompatible with one another.

Some just like starting ith a real low-level character (like my Ithorian farm worker in the pen & paper Star Wars RPG in the 90s), meanwhile others prefer to play min-maxed real heroes ( with sometimes having a tendency towards super-heroes ).
