I can't recall a terribly negative conversation with him, so I'm not sure how I earned his ire. Oh well. Everyone has their reasons, and I'll respect his.Me too high 5
I largely view 4e as an accidentally brilliant game. We know that it was created by a deeply divided design team. It's no wonder parts of the team did not get it because it wasn't the sort of game they wanted to design.
The "accident" aspect may be a result of the rushed development.There was huge amounts of intent in the original design expressed by original team leadership, I do not think accidental is the right word exactly.
