I play 4e with one group and Pathfinder with another. I GM both which keeps me on my toes...
So I got curious - who in here plays 4e. I for one love the system but I know a lot of people are hesitant to "upgrade". Personally I could pave a road with outdated rpg books *lol*
So, if you play 4e, join the group - the first question is allready posted in there

I really dislike 4E. The whole feel of a PnP MMORPG is what makes me feel like a cat stroked backwards. I could rant about it more, but people don't need to see that thing...
I play 4e and have the most experience with it. (I did play part of one campaign 3.5, though.) The campaign I'm working on right now is for 4e.
I don't play 4e - I don't use DnD for my Role Play gaming group at all. I use the Gurps system and have for decades. After following your link I am wondering why we would want to keep this in a separate area?
I would like to create maps for 4e and while it might help if I did play 4e, I don't think it limits my ability to create the type of maps I hear folks speaking about.
Since I already know Gurps and can make it as complex or simple as I want it I don't see the need for a core system change. There are plenty of rules for shoving, throwing, knocking back etc within Gurps if I want to use them and a dangerous battlemap that allows for various strategies in combat shouldn't be that big of a problem.
If I'm the only one who feels this way than no worries but it seems we would be better off if we allowed for everyone to help in making maps specific for the 4e experience. Regardless if they play it or not. *shrug*
Myself....I have played D&D in ALL it's incarnations, and really enjoy the 4th Edition system quite well.
I play once a week... I'm on the fence as to if I really like it as opposed to 3.5. I think combat can be very time consuming.
Of course I'm a Pathfinder/3.5 gamer as stated many times. I don't play 4e, but am working at building a site that specializes in making all types of maps, especially 4e. I've been playing D&D since 1977, so all editions but 4e - as well as plenty of other game systems: Traveler, Space Opera, Twilight 2000, Paranoia, HOL, Runequest, and several others.
Joined I'm a noob at 4e, but running a game anyway, and having a blast. I really like what they've done with it.
I run a 4e game, though previous to that I mostly played 2nd and original. I took several years off
