Not really. Everyone in the industry I've ever heard comment on the topic has said something along the lines of, "Yeah, Hasbro pretty much lets WotC run itself aside from some very high-level decisions." Incorporating tester feedback on individual rules is not a process Hasbro is going to bother inserting itself into.
The only people who imagine Hasbro to be some kind of evil corporate overlord puppetmaster intent on micromanaging a hobby they know nothing about are fans.
My post said nothing about tester feedback, though it was a reply to a reply to a post that did. I'm more curious about whether or not they'll make DDI a product worth what they want for it (usable VTT, better presentation, better content, less limitations) or stop charging as if it were, and/or whether they'll go back to offering PDFs.Any pointers on where we can find these industry comments on the nature of Hasbro and WoTC's relationship? So far on this forum all I've run into is a bunch of 'I heard it from a guy' stuff, which isn't super helpful.
