Why are people not allowed to get annoyed by changes that decrease they're enjoyment of a game? I play DnD to have fun and whether or not I have fun in life is fairly important in my mind.A GAME is the most important things some folks have to be concerned about in their lives?
As for people only being offended I personally certainly wasn't trying to be offended I was and still am a fan of 4e. But alot of the developers comments still rubbed me the wrong way for various reasons. The one that sticks out in my mind being a column that said Planescape was boring and unfun, I forget the exact wording and am currently unable to look at it again but it sticks out in my memory.
