In theory this is all accurate, but it’s not like WotC can tell the difference between someone who cancels their DnDB subscription with the intent to resubscribe under certain conditions and someone who cancels their sub with no intention of resubscribing ever. All they see is people are mad about the OGL and they’re hemorrhaging subscriptions.
Exactly. Who really thinks Wizards execs are sitting down and reading each individual message from the canceled subs? To the extent there is any negotiation going on here, it's with the community
, not with you personally.
Your contribution is one more canceled sub with the text "OGL" somewhere in the explanation box.
And if your particular message does somehow end up on a PowerPoint slide in front of a bunch of executives, who knows how they'll take it? The person who says "I'm willing to come back if you do X, Y, and Z" could make them think "Oh, the fans aren't that
mad, we'll just do something sort of like
X and it'll be fine," while the person who says "I'm through with Hasbro forever!" could result in "Uh-oh, the fans are really
mad, we may not be able to ride this out after all."
Or they might take it the exact opposite. No way to know. The point is that you, D&D Fan #15882, are not sitting in a room with Cynthia Williams and Chris Cocks, engaged in a give-and-take discussion. You are generating a data point in a chart somewhere. Don't worry too much about the exact shade of red you paint it.
