You should always listen to the fans to see what they like, and do your best to please them, but not at the cost of actually having a consumer base. If what the 'hard-core' fans want provably drives your product to the ground, it's well past time to stop listening to them.

I'd wager Furman actually tried to do something different. But when it turns out the fans don't like seeing Robots In Disguise actually being, well, Robots In DisGuise, he tried to salvage his readerbase with Stormbringer. by then, it was already too late
