It's been a while since I've posted! However, as someone who still plays PF1, with a mix of Castles and Crusades and 5e (mostly Eberron), all of which are dependent on the 1.0a OGL, I'd like to chime in and give my 2 copper pieces...
First, listen. People talking s#i%! about 5e players/fans/whatever - a simple reddit, twitter or D&D Beyond forum search would have you know that in fact, 5e players and OneD&D playtesters alike are NOT at all happy with the OGL changes. Many 5e players, myself included, like the 3pp support, and many (myself not included), only plays 5e through 3pp content. Many are expressing sympathies for creators and publishers that depend on the OGL, Pathfinder included.
For the past 3 days, #OneDnD is almost 100% negative towards WotC and Hasbro. #OpenDnD is trending. The D&D Beyond discord is actively silencing any discourse regarding the 1.1 leak. It's a total PR s#!tstorm.
I know PF and 5e fanbases have rivalries. But this is not the time to accentuate those rivalries. Many 5e players still love Paizo and PF (I know I still do, even though I don't play as much anymore).
I any case, let's turn our hatred towards Hasbro!
