My issue with this take is that if there was no Ranger or Paladin or Berserker, there'd be just as many attempts at those classes too. Psion is not unique in this aspect.
All of this is beside the point, though. The point of this thread is to design a Psion class, not to debate whether one should exist or not. Everyone posting here should be doing so under the assumptions that (1) you want a Psion class, and (2) you want to help build it.Heck, the ranger is an official class and there are still more takes on it than the psionic.
The idea that Wizards didn't release something "because it would get torn apart on the boards" is preposterous.
