Infinite points is basically a tool option for you to recreate a character of your own - such as one you played in a home game, or a favorite of yours that you like to play as. Of course, some will use it to make a buff-as-can-be character, but if that's their fun, then that's what it is.
I've a character that has a 6 and an 8, for example, and I'd love to recreate her and play her again in this video game. I'd need to use a manual ability score setting option to do that. Some people feel uncomfortable using external or 3rd party game editors for things like this, and having it openly available in the game naturally would be much preferred.
Exactly. I’m sure there’s a lot of players who want to recreate their tabletop characters. And having to sit through hundreds/thousands of rolls in order to do so seems silly.
I’d even suggest if you go roll or infinite points, the lowest can be three since that is a number you can roll.
