So, as I just read, a fifth edition of the mother of all Pen&Paper games is in the works. What this brings for us, remains to be seen. The fact, that the designers want to listen to the community is a two-edged sword. First and foremost, they seem to forget, that the community consists of fans.
And fans, as we should all be aware, produce first and most a lot of air. Secondly, most of them don´t want great changes or want changes they personally deem correct but that do not necessarily add to the game as a whole, so that the complete game suffers.
On the other side, asking the people playing it, means getting a game those people will want to buy. However, this may mean less changes and thus ...it´s a spiral of demise. Frankly, don´t listen too closely to the fans.
