There's a hakpak out there that takes out the challenge rating from the creature inspections screen. So you can't right click on your enemies to decide if you're going to show your uberleetness to the effortless victim by hacking it down in two quick blows or be the super roleplay partner to the challenging opponent.
Wouldn't that be a good addition for Rebirth? I'm not quite sure, cause on the other hand, I can see how the usual suspects would use it as an excuse to grief lowbies ("What? I didn't know he was lvl 1! I thought he's using the worn out leather armor and the rusty sword to hide his real level!!")

I think it's fair to say that in most cases -- speaking IC -- you'd realistically be able to gauge about how difficult an enemy would be compared to your current ability level.

Which is all you really get in the examine screen -- a rough estimate. The reality of the situation could be completely different. For instance, you may be wearing a greater swordsman's belt, or can cast Harm.

So I think it should stay in. I can't know for sure that the Ogre Eater's going to beat my arse at level 1, but I wager I can make a pretty good guess....

How true. And how many times is the Rating on a critter not a good gauge of how you'll do? If you're a level 7 the Eater shows up as Effortless, but he'll still take you all of forever to kill by yourself! The Rating is just based on the creature's level, not it's true difficulty...

Nope, it's not messed up. You shouldn't live by the CR, that's it..period

The CR is there to give someone a GENERAL look of what it would be like for someone who is your level, just an average character. You should look it as a look at a creature by the adventure, and it can never be exact.
