comment Does it make sense to give characters free weapons expertise?
@mirv120, the computer problem was only half the reason. I didn't think the fix was necessary. Accounting for the error in the builder created a power discrepancy between players. I didn't like what the CB did for my game in general and if I could have gotten my players to quit using it I would have.

aramis, what kind of information dispensing do they prefer? I've seen players who are too lazy to read a cheat sheet, but I haven't seen any that outright rebel against them.
