Hobbit on Quest (he/him)
There are definitely people who like it as a system. I am one of them. It is, by far, my favorite edition of D&D. That doesn't mean there aren't quirks here and there that could stand improvement, but I've really been enjoying the relative ease of play compared to the 3e family and 4e.I recently joined a 5e game. As part of actually trying to grock this thing 5e) I have been reading the threads about 5e rules. (Yes, I've also been reading the rules.) From reading of the threads I have to ask, does anyone playing 5e actually like it as a system?
Many posters here wax lyrical and lovingly about favourite campaign settings, lineages, classes, and of course the great moments in their games. But very few posters speak kindly of the actual system.
Am I wrong in this supposition?
And, yes, that also includes playing/running Adventurer's League at conventions where I have never had a problem with people having to run to event organizers or search the web for rule clarifications.
