No. I called tasha and so on band aids. Probably I misunderstood you that you said you wanted just a compilation of previous changes.
One would hope that by rolling the supplements into the core that they would be updated and corrected for their own issues.
While one could easily assume that that isn't what would happen, as far as the hypothetical goes its what you'd want to do. Update everything and consolidate into a spiffy box set, make bonkers moneys. Its a win all around.
I am not even sure you agree with that… or we have a very different understanding of what a genuine update is
If there is no deprecation, it is by definition not an update.
then why do you hound me for acknowledging that?
Im not the one making you keep replying to this topic. Im also not the one ignoring big problems when they don't suit my arguments that there are no problems.
So flip your script, if a DM was only using the UA spellless ranger and you just wanted to play the bog-standard PHB one, what should happen?
Do keep in mind that in this case its the DM imposing this on the game, not WOTC. Key difference.
There are, in fact, already DMs who only play with the core books and nothing else. These DMs are few and far between for a reason, so assuming that becUzw DMs can pick and choose what books will go into their games that this will have any bearing on the fact that there will be two separate games worth of books is just faulty.
After all, while I wasn't there for it, Ive read stories about the nightmare that was 3e when it came to book selection.
Its one thing to have that when all those books, at least for some of its life, all comprise one edition and one single ruleset. Its another when you have all those books and they comprise two entirely separate games, one of which is a well known and well quantified unbalanced mess.
