And if someone likes the idea of Fighter, but hates the idea of being trapped in Little League...?No one on my table is ever, ever forced to play a fighter. No one.
Because that's exactly what I'm telling you is the problem. For me, and for plenty of other people.
I'm not saying the class has to be mega-ultra-powerful. And I certainly don't want it to start practicing magic. You seem to think that "Fighter" is this unalterable chunk--that absolutely every single thing about it is unchangable and fixed, that being shackled to Little League, being martial, being widely-loved, and being confined to something even less than an Olympic Athlete, are all one singular block that could never be altered without destroying the whole thing, and that's simply wrong. So why should I have to settle for being shackled to Little League if I want to play a Fighter, when (I argue, though Pedantic disagrees) it is entirely possible to create a Fighter that is NOT shackled to Little League, that is NOT mandatorily inferior to even IRL athletes, yet still both martial and widely loved?
You can have what you want without it costing me what I want. Unless and until you prove otherwise, why should I have to put up with you getting what you want and me being denied what I want if they aren't exclusive?
