I also am a fan of the new character creation rules and stat generation.
Start with 10’s in everything.
Ancestory grains a net + 4 ( either 2 +2’s or 3 +2 and 1 -2)
Background grants another 2 +2 and some skills
Class Grants another +2
4 other +2s that I think have to be different..
Nets you something like 18,16,12,12,10,10
I also liked them shaking up the apple cart a bit with not just giving ancestors bonuses out right (all elves in 5th ed are basically the same on paper).
