JFTR I have some sympathy with this view. I returned to Angband at 3.1.0 after quite a long break, and I was always a bit perplexed about why ID-by-use worked instantly. The first time you hit something, blam, there are the plusses. Ditto with being hit, and learning flags. There were threads during the development of 3.1.0 which indicated that it might take some time to narrow down the range of plusses, but in the end we seem to have decided against that.
"3.4 is much better than 3.1, 3.2 or 3.3. It still is easier than 3.0.9, but it is more convenient to play without being ridiculously easy, so it is my new favorite of the versions." - Timo Pietila
