I don't suppose you have a remedy for the new generation of players either?

I don't like how they've pretty much eviscerated the D&D brand and made it a mockery of the original.

I don't like how the current generation places almost no value on "role-playing", and instead...

3E and every other edition of D&D is not the D&D I am familiar with.

Not quite true.

Lizards of the Coast has been around for a little over 20 years. M:tG didn't come out until 1993.

Lizards of the Coast was a mediocre game company (Talislanta, anyone?) before they acquired the rights to M:tG, so it's no surprise that their handling of D&D has been "meh" at best.

Personally, I don't care about 5th edition because it's not 2E. I will never buy another piece of material from Lizards of the Coast until they go back to an older edition.
