I don’t know how much venom there is. Some of us say what we feel then get attacked then defend and get called out for defending it too many times.Sure, again we can. But if we're going to accept that we all can have different definitions of "edition", why then the vehement opposition to WotC not calling it an edition?
So far from what we have seen them testing we feel they are testing a new edition.
I don’t care if they call it an editon as long as they show a break. “This PHB goes with this and that PHB goes with that” or if they truely don’t take away mechanics (like 0pact magic)Their basis for not using the word seems to be because of how they've used edition in the past, so we can see the logic thereof. Yet so many words have been spilt to denounce WotC avoiding the term (when the term has meant, since WotC stewardship of the game, something that isn't just a revision—like 5.24e is supposed to be). What's the point? What's the logic?
