No 4E for me; I'm not in the market for another new fantasy game (been there, done that). I'm having fun playing D&D (1974 version, in my case).
EricNoah said:I'm not ready now, and I don't think I will be for a long time, if at all. I have so much 3E stuff to explore and use it's silly to even contemplate moving on. And I don't have anyone excited about the prospect in any of my groups.
I also don't think 4E will be ready for me (in terms of solid computer support) for some time after initial release. So I'll definitely want to let WotC shake out the bugs for a bit. I will keep up with 4E news and try to read reviews and so forth out of academic curiosity.
Nifft said:Okay. Have fun with ... not-4e.
(It's hard to bring positive into a purely negative thread.)
Cheers, -- N

Delta said:Yeah -- interestingly, this was the first thing my batch of friends at Gen Con told me about. This here is the first independent report about that I've heard, so now I can say my friends aren't plain crazy.
You must have been at a different Gencon presentation to me then. Certainly there were scattered grumbles as well as applause. Mostly the place was fairly quiet. To suggest there were "tons of unhapppy booing fans" is seriously overstating the position.mmu1 said:That's how it seemed like, anyway, and the crappy PowerPoint presentation and the tons of unhappy booing fans really made it hard to feel that this new edition was going to something good.
