I have to wonder if it's more painful to players to get hit with something like this cold, or more painful to go through the anticipation... (taking DM notes)

I figure it's best to give out as much information as can safely be done as soon as it can be done. That's what tends to underpin how I answer that question.

I've worked in Customer Service and/or sales a lot, and coming from that standpoint, I tend to agree with you. Even though, personally, I'm fairly impatient, I think that warning us about the impending change is better than just dropping it on us and making it seem like it came out of nowhere.

Cool. :)  Well, it's dropping within the hour.  Just the video and an overview post, and then my detailed post about many of the new things will be coming a few hours later, once I write it.
