Yes! I don't even play wizards often, but when I do, that's what I want to do, and in my experience that's what people generally want when they choose to play the wizard. Similarly, when people choose to play the sorcerer, they specifically don't want to be doing that.Ya know I get it... In the previous editions, especially in 3e and before, the Wizard was 'the Batman'. The guy who's always like "I got a spell for that!" if they prepare well enough, and that felt good. It felt gratifying to be the one guy with the solution... And now you're not the only one who can pull off the "I got a spell for that" and it feels like a betrayal.
Because the Wizard's identity began to rely on that single aspect too much it feels like if THAT part is taken away, even just partially, the Wizard's got nothing.
And I think this was a perfectly fine and clear differentiation between these two rather similar arcane caster classes, and this feature destroys that.
