    Yeah, but if he had told us there would be nothing actually announced I would not have wasted an hour of my time being trolled about his and Tito’s camping trip or the alternative (or not) covers for the core books. Or things that may or may not happen at SDCC.

    The only reason I watched was to hear about settings because he “hinted and people thought but I never promised”. I hate having my time wasted by that kind of junk.

    That is my first and probably last fireside that I spend time watch.

    The announcement that there will be a future announcement is a non-announcement; it's a scheduling change dressed up like an announcement. And, most likely, it was an intentional lure to get more people to view the fireside. I'm glad I skipped it, and stuff like this gives me no incentive to ever want to view it.

    His goal was to get people to watch, certainly.

    So, I should be glad that I had no idea what vehicle was actually being used to announce the non-announcement?

    Yeah but it’s like killing the sheep for the wool. Now I, and I’m sure others, who might have tuned in on the regular with a good worthwhile stream are never going to watch. How is that helpful?

    I've come to the conclusion that the current staff thinks they are much "cuter" (mentally) and better showmen than they actually are. I don't understand the appeal of things like "Stream of Annihilation" and "Stream of Many Eyes".

    This is why I let other people watch things and spill the beans, or at least tell me when the beans are going to be spilled

    Keep in mind that all of 87 people watched that stream. That’s a ridiculously tiny audience.
    They need to slowly build anticipation and word of mouth.
