I'm perplexed why you don't understand. I'd be certainly be nervous launching a new game - I'd be surprised if Gabe Newell or the Biodocs didn't get a little nervous.

More specifically, people react unpredictably. I'm not sure if it's deliberate or not but you've posted in both Avadon threads essentially saying the game is the same (this thread, elsewhere you dispute the difference in the new class system). So, on one hand, it's apparently the same game, which will turn off some people who want big changes.

On the other hand, some people are reacting like this - from Qt3:

This one has been dumbed down a lot: regenerating health and MP, auto-revival after fights, no stats or skills unlocking special dialogue options, quests markers, less classes, less difficult (Vogel stating that no one should die on normal difficulty)…

Jeff has decided to ignore the hardcore fans who made him successful in order to reach a more mainstream audience.
And there are far more radical sites than Qt3.

Is is the same or is it dumbed down and pandering to the masses? No wonder the guy is nervous.
