WotC WotC needs an Elon Musk

WotC needs an Elon Musk, I know I'll get dumped on for saying it, but when 50% roughly that the D&D studio works on gets tossed in the trash and the rest tends to be shades of poorly done when the D&D studio doesn't have adult supervision (freelancers Keith, Matt, or George for examples of adult supervision).

We should be getting products equal to the 5e Southland Kickstarter, instead we are getting setting products without the settings. This is absurd.

New visionary leadership is needed.

And as big as the problems with D&D are, the issues with MtG dwarf it with a major consumer revolt going on, and multiple WotC studios that have been around for years and yet have yet to produce any products at all.

Maybe this is finally the time for the activist investors to make their next more or at least close to that time because it appears they have been vindicated.

Part of WotC's problem is they are too focused on casuals, but it's the hardcore fans that create the buzz that draws in the casuals in the first place (this is shown by the Fandom survey/research that basically fandoms in 4 grades from the most hardcore fans to the most casual casuals). Their current approach is to alienate hardcore fans to court casuals, and that is a problem because it's the hardcore fans the build the foundation the gets you the casuals.

It's what made the MCU (and ignoring that truth is killing the MCU) for example.

Are you joking or trolling? Everything you have said here sounds awful.

Musk is also a terrible businessman, I have no idea why you would want to bring him as an example of what to seek.

Normally you are pretty reasonable, so seeing this post is kind of shocking.

okay I am not a Musk fan, but I actually get what you mean (even if I disagree with your example) I DO think WotC needs a...wait let you say it

at the very least new blood. Not a total overhaul (always need some people to stay on to help onboard the new) but start hireing some 25 year old indy developers with an eye for diversity of background and thoughts...

oh... oh no, I could not disagree more. We need to bring in the casuals AND apease the hardcore fans, but when you have a choice it has to be the new customer.

Yes and no... but I can totally see we need a new Keven F (both for the MCU and WotC)
