Unfortunately, the anxiety to complete eras has caused the old era divisions to re-emerge. "I don't like _______ characters.", "Getting _______ holds _________ back.", "___________ is taking away tooling from ____________.", "__________ is the reason why Classics has trouble selling subs.", "I can't sell off __________ and have to take a loss on that character!".
Preferences are fine, but I take issue with fans of "greater eras" telling fans of "lesser eras" that their characters shouldn't get made, "take one for the team" or some other euphemism. I can't wait until 2015 ends, because the Vintage only fans will be satisfied and there will be no more conflict over what gets made from THAT faction.
I loved the 2010-2011 period where fans were championing for their favorite obscure character. But when things became dire, the fandom regressed back to it's 2008 state.
