The issue is that we (fanbase) lack any capacity to see if the basic system is fun or not right now. At the end of the day, every dev statement so far on why 3E will be good has basically come down to "trust us."
See, no, that's not "the issue." That's an
issue, and one that I can't really speak against because, hey, it's not all that unreasonable.
But what I responded to up above was not that. Fan_Service is affording the Storyteller system some mystic quality that does not exist, fetishizing its past failures and shaking them like a talisman at the future.
Let me be clear: The Storyteller system has changed very little for two decades. There are good and bad reasons for it, but the system has simply remained very consistent in that time. This is not because the system is some magical shackle that prevents change.
