Just a reminder to everyone that we've had quite a lengthy discussion about this product's contents already in this other thread: D&D 5E - Rebalanced Tyranny of Dragons Coming In January

The conclusion was that it is the same product as last time just without the hobby store exclusive cover. So there are no additional changes to the ones that they made to the adventures when they first combined them into one product.
Yeah but I don’t necessarily agree with that conclusion.

I crit!
If they had made any changes, even minor ones, people would be saying "WotC made unnecessary changes to get more money!". Come to think of it, people are saying that about the new cover anyway :) Books get new covers routinely with new printings. Should RPG books be any different?
I mean they did do it to make more money.

Though not to "trick" anyone. Any collectors now know what they are getting if they feel they have to buy it again for the cover.

It does seem to sell well enough they wanted to get it into a wider release format.

I think it's in a space much like when 5e was released and it's immediate huge popularity not only stunned WotC it stunned many of the folks like us who watch these things.

This is disappointing. They've had years of lessons learned since it first came out, and could have made some changes to better balance out the game and flow.

It does clearly state above "Adventure has been rebalanced to be easier for a new Dungeon Master to run and a better play experience." so it is not as if this is the original version that was published as separate books.

Yes, I see nothing "sinister" here. They released a combined version with a limited cover and, presumably, that one sold well. Now, they release another printing. Probably the idea is also to take advantage commercially of the heightened focus on Tiamat/Takhisis thanks to Dragonlance.
