Problem is that PF2 playtest does not know what it want's to be, that is devs, do not know how to proceed?
Little like PF1?
Little like 5E?
They took spell scaling from 5E but kept PF1/3.5e slot preparation,
They took 4E "level gives bonus to everything" and then tackled on pretty badly 5E proficiency progress -4 to +3 in comparison to 0 to +6(+12 in some cases).
They took multiclassing via feats, atleast they did it better than 4E tried that subject, so one plus there.
They don't want to be 5.5e but 5E mechanics creep in the back door.
Either do PF2 like PF1 and do a nice upgrade and pay respect to the source or do your own thing right.
Err..yeah. They are trying to make a new game, not just update an existing system. So yeah I am not surprised there are elements/similarities to all of these different systems.
