Numbers is numbers and they do what they do, and stats can sometimes dictate aspects of your character you may not have planned for. And while I accept that, I prefer to roll (no pun for me) with what the dice give me after I've sprung from the soil. I'd rather have the 18 strength and deal with the results of a '1' than a 5 strength that I hadn't counted on - essentially Wayne's argument.

I look at it from the PCs personality rather than the dice. Sure stats may be similar, but a character's behavior isn't.
All that said, I'm open to whatever you want. It's your game. If it makes you happy to have dice rolls for stats... I will not say:
