This is in no way meant to be flammatory, please keep the comments positive. I love 4e embraced it hardcore. At first WotC "hinted" that Essentials would not replace 4e but be the basic set to Advance Dungeons and Dragons of years gone by. But the more I hear and see, it looks like 4e will no longer be supported, every book for D&D so far looks to be Essentials. Sure the Modules and the upcoming Monster Vault aren't going to be affected by edition 4.0 or 4.125, but the way player characters are being made is. Don't get me wrong, I want to embrace it, I will pick up either the Rules Compendium or Players Guide today, but so far it doesn't look good for the 4.0 crowd.
