Say what? Not sure what you mean there, but skills were capped at 8 (9 with specialisations).

Lets go back to the older edition where if you had 20 dice with a minigun to hit something, and the gun explicitly states you roll 5X that number of dice... 100 Dice. Sad thing is, I am not joking, that is literally how it used to work. Armor doesn't really matter much against a dice pool of 100. The only game system that is worse in terms of number of dice rolled is Exalted 1st edition, but I won't get into that here.

And last time I did algebra, it told me that 100 Dice > 14 Dice.
I'm guessing that was 1st edition, because I've never even had 20 dice base to throw let alone had to multiply it!!

Let's take the edition wars to other forums, please. Leave this forum for a discussion of how previous editions could be implemented in HL, who'd be interested in that, and who'd be interested in helping with that.

Hopefully you've gotten the gist that I'm all for helping with SR3 :o)

and Hey, lets not all forget that it can get ridiculous in 4E too... I have a Troll adept in my game rolling 18 dice to attack and 27 dice to soak...

and in 2E you had an additional dice pool (Combat pool or Mana Pool) that allowed you to add a number of dice equal to the skill... so if you had a stat of 6 and skill of 8 and then add 8 more dice from you combat pool... your at 20... and then he is right, with Full auto guns you rolled that for each round or every other round fired... so while it wasn't a single 100 die attack (it was 5 20 die attacks) it was still gross.

so glad those extra dice pools are gone in 4e.

^_^ No, they're not. They've just all been merged into a single pool: Edge.

A Nartaki can have an Edge of 9 (Human max 7; Exceptional Attribute to reach 8; then Metagenic Enhancement to hit 9). That means, nine times in one run, they can add nine dice to any roll they make.

Okay, this is drifting off topic into an edition wars thread, and is now locked.
