HAHAH! Troll description Trolls us!
When you select a troll in game it says in the description that trolls are considered to be less intelligent than others, even though there is no proof. Then you look at the max attributes and see trolls INT is maxed at 6, clear evidence that you are being trolled.

Exactly.

However as a reminder, in the PNP version the "averages" are similar across the board and only "relevant individuals" have more than 3 karma in anything. Some people excel and get 10 points or more in something doesn't mean it is the norm, like how some people have 10 million dollars a year while others are dirt poor.

Average Joe Schmoe in Shadowrun has roughly 2 points in most things they "have", 3 points at their "best" thing and only above average/exceptional people have more.

Which is why I loved my troll with 15 Body. Some situations you can't think you way out of.

That bit of the description is talking in-universe, not game mechanics. There's serious social stigma against orks and trolls (and against the other metas but not to the same degree since elves and dwarves still look pretty damn human) so their chances for education are lowered, meaning that most orks and trolls are, on average, less intelligent than the other metatypes simply because most never got the chance for a proper education.

Gameplay-wise; it's to balance out the high physical stats so that the metatype actually has a drawback (why use an elf over a troll if both can be as intelligent as each other?).

You do know I was making this post in jest, and understand the game mechanics right?

Maybe its the cynic in me but I just assumed you were an idiot lol
It what I assume in any given encounter until shown otherwise, and it gets me through the day without much hassle :)

There are situations you can think your way out of in the main campaign?
Yeah, like virtually every mission doesn't end in a huge fight. Intelligence is basically a dump stat here. Even the things you do to avoid fights, like feeding those dog things is less thinking and more do the bloody obvious with the thing that's right in your path.
