    It became more popular than 2e because it was dumbed down and streamlined. All the people that got filtered by thac0 and 2e's lethality finally got their chance. And it remains popular to this day because of munchkinry. 3.5 let all those number autists feel powerful, especially combined with imbalanced as fuck splatbooks and weak DMs who didn't know any better. 5e does not allow you to stroke your epeen by theorycrafting "busted" builds nearly to the same degree, and so these people detest it even though it's the second best DnD edition after 2e.

    Huh? You can say a lot of things about BG3, but "nostalgia driven" is not how I'd describe it.

    Alright I've started watching it on Twitch. So far it seems like the kind of game you'll want to play while in the process of transitioning.

    5e is the best DnD after 2e?

    When did all these roleplaying newbies enter my hobby and how do I kick them out.

    An hour and thirty minutes to download, it's pretty bullshit that streamers got to preload the game and play it already.

    Not enough to pay us though right. Check out the hordes of fuckoes just rushing to beta test the little product. Amazing truly. Truly the modern man is waiting for the spoon to feed him as he stares into the abyss. However, I have to say that I Cannot Wait To Enjoy This Game, and am slaming my head violently agaisnt the walls as the download cannot finish fast enough eeeeeeeEEEEEAEEEEEEHHHHHHEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

    I don't know why anyone would want to watch a streamer play an RPG, especially if it has a D&D style character creation system.
