Yes, the more I have thought about it I think alot of the disconnect I have with 4e is literally the presentation. It makes not a lick of sense but there it is.On a side note to all those who dislike the use of the term "Powers" for martial classes...
Would "tricks" or "maneuvers" be more acceptable terminology?
It seems like this is just a semantics argument. Or is the objection specifically to any non At-Will type of power?
For instance if you had a Power called Trip Attack... would it be any different than having a Trip maneuver? Or is the primary argument geared toward the Trip power being forced into say an Encounter Power rather than at At-Will "action"?
I had thought it was fake give it did sound just like 4e to me and there would be NO way they would have written and internally tested a module that big in such a short time. The playtest stuff had a different vibe to it, more like BXMI to me.
