Heretic of The Seventh Circle
He is going exactly with the very idea of the playtest. Compatibility is a priority of the playtest. The playtest assumes the use of some elements of the 2014 PHB and existing supplements.I find it funny that you side with the player wanting to go against the very idea of the playtest.
Agreeing to a game and then ignoring the pitch for the game is a wholly different beast from “going against the very idea of the playtest.”We didn’t call him annoying but we sure told him to knock it off.
This was a playtest game and the DM said he wanted to use as much of the playtest as possible. That was the pitch. TBH he asked about fighters and warlocks that is how we ended up with these characters.
Then I’d rather not continue interacting. I don’t have enough spare time to waste it arguing with folks who can’t even take basic design goals at face value while participating in a playtest.I’m not sure if lying is the right word but “putting spin on it” might be. I guess that is a type of lying.
