It is really weird how some people think that being free magically shields a particular thing against the same exact kind of discourse and criticism it would get if it weren't free. Why would "free" mean everyone had to immediately love everything about it? And what if it is only temporarily free? Are we allowed to complain about it after if it sold, even if we still have the "free" version? What if it isn't really "free" because it requires you sell your data and eyeballs for it? Are we allowed to talk about it then?
And you always come with this same complaint about free stuff about wanting it in PDF form. So maybe actually talk about the actual content instead of the form it takes.

Well it would have been a pdf, but the D&D Beyond Purchase happened so a PDF became pointless. And reading it on the D&D Beyond site is just as coinvent as a PDF.
Demonstrably untrue. No offline access without pain-in-the-rear print from HTML shenanigans. I hate renting content, even if I'm not paying for it. They're basically letting you borrow their stuff.

Thank you!

tried this. It doesn't give me very good results. The PDF ends up with navigation artifacts (the green up arrow) on every page, occasionally blocking the text, the background colour for the monster blocks appears only behind some of the block, and there are lots of orphaned headings. It's better than nothing, sure, but then I'd rather just save a local copy of the webpage.
Yeah, but that's what people are talking about.

Y'know, I would have appreciated a handful of premade characters to go with this, like the one above. I think it might have helped to set the tone of what the PC expectations are like.
I don't think they have PC expectations for this, beyond, "play whatever Adventurer's League allows you to play".

Well, those are in the box set. The nature of Spelljammer militates against limits, so anything from Xanathar's, Tasha's, Core, and Monsters of the Multiverse is fair game.

And yes I would call this a derail, as people are not talking about the product, they are complaining about Beyond not being exactly what they want despite nothing changing for several years.
The thing that has changed is doing this extra stuff on beyond rather than as PDFs, as they did in the past. It is nakedly a way to pull people into the Beyond ecosystem -- which makes perfect sense for WotC, but it doesn't mean we have to like it. We are allowed to not like things WotC does.
