Got this in my email this morning:
A few days ago, the D&D team announced that the next playtest packet will be the last in the public playtest. That’s why it’s more important than ever that you provide feedback. Today’s survey focuses on content that was updated in the August 2nd playtest packet, such as feats and classes.So, if the public beta is done, does this mean the rules are ready to be finalized?
My group tapped out of the playtest in late spring of 2012 and I really haven't followed the updates all that much recently.
I know the initial vision of all things for all editions is pretty much out the window, but for those of you that have kept up with the beta, do you think we have a winner or another loss of market share?
