I had a longer post, but the Internet ate it.so what they said was undoable... and we know they tried... OR they gave up and changed direction OR they lied/mislead to get people to get into the system...
no one ever did something so no one ever should... an interesting take
WotC has tried variants in the past. Attempts to move past the basics usually poll bad. Ergo, WotC has no reason to move past the basics, especially if they are selling well. I attribute no malice to WotC, they are giving "us" what we ask for.
