Even 5e has "a chunk" of people who dislike it, sometimes very vocally. So not really.
Ok, if you are going to stand on that argument as remotely equivalent, then I'll find that telling of your open-mindedness to the situation.
But you said you like 5e, while you dislike PF2, so those people aren't part of the narrative you want to construct.
And yet, against the great majority, I also state that I *prefer* PF1E to 5E. I should be one of the people complaining. But, quite simply 5E rocks in its own right and is hugely popular and deservedly so.
That's the meat of this, you keep trying to abstract the conversation into broad strokes about fanbases and consumer trends but really it's about you being upset this game doesn't cater to you.
That's fine, but trying to aggrandize the issue doesn't help.
So now we come to the part where you tell me what I'm thinking. Well. you are wrong.
Do I wish that 2E had retained a focus on the aspects of gameplay that I expect? Of course I do. But the fanbase alienation is a thing and would be a thing if I happened to love this edition and would be a thing if I never heard of this edition.
I'd say it is better to be honest about the reactions across the market as whole rather than to just stick your head in the sand and get angry at people who point out what you don't want to hear.
