At least the Combat Maneuvers are something. Better than just standing there and just wacking things with a stick.

Still hoping the Shadar-Kai still have the ability to basically go NO to magic sleep still.

It might if you assume a common physiological baseline. But that is not a safe assumption for fantasy creatures.
D&D is an exceptions based game where exceptions are explicitly called out. If when we read the new halfling section it explicitly talks about their non-human physiology allowing them to move faster, then that will explain things. I very much doubt WotC will have done that, though, which means the physiology won't be different enough to account for it.

D&D is a rules-based game where creatures' capabilities are mechanically defined. If the new section for halflings says they can move at the same pace as a medium creature, they can. Any question of physiological feasibility can be answered by "its different enough to allow what the rules say it allows."

Sure, but not due to physiology. So they'll will nonsensically be able to move as fast as creatures with similar physiology and twice the stride length.

No. It fails to be a Warlord which is what most people really mean when they say "advanced fighter." The Battlemaster is very much an advanced fighter. It is NOT a Warlord.
Nah, people are moreso wanting something moreso like the Warblade from 3E. Something with the idea of Fighter but more meat to it

Like, I will bang the Warlord drum any chance I get, but this is just folks finding the basic fighter not meaty enough and want something more to it and is an issue dating back to the playtest
