Where do you people find these other people who shit-talk editions somewhere other than the internet?

Even when I'm talking to a tabletop gamer who plays different stuff than me, the conversation is all joyous, gleeful nerdery.

Good, keep playing 3.5 so I never have to play with you.

Its one thing if they just didn't like it. But they spent years in campaigns with me and I had a major one planned for this upcoming summer.

Good. You are probably just a tagalong with your group. I bet you're the guy who's absences they don't notice. I bet you say a lot of spineless stupid shit and they smile and nod at you.

I bet you're the guy who always makes the rest of his group watch obtuse youtube videos you think are funny, or recommending music to people who didn't ask for your opinion.

You're not That Guy. You're the That Other Guy.

>> No.37273539


Others had no complaints in past, enjoyed game, numerous campaigns.
I prefer customization options and complexity.
I know other people like 5e, I am trying it and like it to.
I had campaigns planned and am sad, some of some friends are very vitriolic about it.

I'm not a tagalong, I'm in a lot of them and was involved in a lot of planning. STFU. I'm the one who is usually getting That Guy and That Other Guy back on track.

God I hate people like you.

No, character building should not be 75% of the game. This is the main reason 3.5 is the largest deviation from AD&D.

>> No.37273650


You can still plan those campaigns. Take a look through your notes and make modifications, it can't ALL require scrapping because someone changed the edition on you.

If campaigns are the problem, just put a little effort into making an edition conversion.

Keep at it, you'll get over your mental sickness.

>> No.37273726


You're friends are right, you should listen to them.

Also I don't see why you can't run the same planned campaigns in 5e - unless they required some SPECIFIC obsolete 3.5 mechanic, which would be autismal as fuck.

>> No.37273849

Like everyone else I am afraid I'll have to say that 5e is better, but there's nothing wrong with having your own opinions.

If you like more customization, I encourage you to play a human wizard -- you'll still get a pretty big spell list to sift through, and you get to read all the feats immediately for human bonus. Talk to your DM about a possible custom background.

Why are you being so fucking hostile.

>> No.37274194

The problem here is that your opinion is entirely subjective. And by sheer virtue of not being hideously broken 5e is much better objectively than 3.5

Therefore, just accept it, play 5e with them and enjoy it. If you still really, really want to play 3.5 then find another group and play with them as well, there's not really a shortage of 3.5 groups out there

You're going to lose friends over that? Then either they're bad friends or you are, or both.

>> No.37274749

Why are you letting these arguments escalate to the point where they're threatening friendships?

I mean, I'd expect this if you all are under-20 nerds or something, and you don't grasp what's important enough to seriously beef over; then you and your friends just need to grow up and be less angry about shit.
But if you're NOT? Holy shit, fix your life.

If you are going to shit on your friend because of what they like, then the "odd man out" theory of That Guy goes out the window, and you're just That Guy in life.

>> No.37275652

Be polite when discussing edition differences among your friends IRL. Don't get bitter. Don't try too hard to convince people, it backfires.

Try 5E for a while and if you still hate it, find another group to play with.

End of story.

>If you're going to shit on what your friend likes
You've taken things too personally. Are they calling you a useless shitstain waste of space because you're into 3.x or are they saying 3.x is shit?

It is objectively true that 3.5 has far more material and options available than 5e, but how much you value this compared to it's broken aspects is subjective. Nothing can really objectively be better than something else because of subjective value

>> No.37282800


>> No.37283521

>3.5 has far more material and options available
So homebrew what you want for 5e. No matter how ham-fisted your stuff is, it's probably more balanced than actually playing 3.5.

What specific things from 3.5 do you want in your games?
>I prefer customization options and complexity.
That's pretty fucking vague. Are there specific character concepts you're having trouble working out in 5e? Shit like psionics and summoners that aren't really supported in core? That you can homebrew. Your only problem is if you actually enjoy counting out skill points and trying to comb through 100 prestige classes to make effective combos.

>> No.37283855

This. Especially, especially when it's over 5E versus 3E, because there's so little difference between them. 5E is basically 3E without the flaws. Even if the flaws of 3E didn't bother you, I really fail to see how you'd think 5e was that much worse. And losing friends over it? You're pathetic. Grow up.

>> No.37284103



Exactly. Just socialize with humans and enjoy your hobby in real life, where people are largely decent.

All of this spergish outrage only occurs online. In real life, people are afraid to get smacked in the face. That's why we invented manners. And violence.
