That is an unnecessarily dismissive attitude and not factual. I think you’re better than that MaxSo then 4e had nothing new and there's even less to connect the World Axis to the default Great Wheel of 5e.
To be clear though, I don’t think adopting ideas from the 4e world axis means other parts of it are default 5e. But to suggest 4e didn’t have an influence on the 5e version of the great wheel is just silly or ignorant IMO
The 5e great wheel =/= the great wheel of old
