I'll still buy a 4e book if it's a good book. Sometimes I don't even use a book (such as Essentials), I just read it to see what it's like. I haven't bought anything since DSCS, though.
There's still a few things in the pipline that look interesting. Heroes of the Elemental Chaos, Menzoberranzan, the new Realms book by Greenwood (I wouldn't be suprised if it's edition neutral). I've bought D&D hardcovers and boxed sets month after month, year after year; an edition change doesn't even slow me down anymore. It's actually an exciting time for me (other than that, I'm as normal as the rest of ya ;)).
@mikemearls don't quite understand the difference
I don't make the rules, I just think them up and write them down. - Eric Cartman
Enough chitchat! Time is candy! - Pinky Pie
And yes, I think WoTC shot themselves in the foot - but they did that long before any hint of 5e.
Oops, looks like this request tried to create an infinite loop. We do not allow such things here. We are a professional website!
I'll be picking up everything I can and downloading all the Dragon/Dungeon back issues because from what I've seen of 5E, my friends and I will be sticking with 4E until at least 6E comes around and, despite WotC's claims of continued support, I do NOT trust them to keep supporting the 4E tools for more than a year or so after the launch of 5E.
With 5 e being announced. I am wondering if anyone will be buying any of the new releases upcoming for the 4 e. do you think they (wotc) shot them self in the foot?
