First I'll surmise my expectations that became letdowns, yes that's all of them.

-Grogar is still not real and did not summon the grootslang, it was roaming free.
-The Knights of Harmony aren't ponies. It would make the arc more dramatic since Twilight would've thought she was fighting the wrong cause.
-The Equestrian elements of Harmony aren't even in the legend nor mythos. Turns out the sixth tree was pure coincidence that overshadowed something never even heard of to begin with. The story could've worked even without ponies at all. Like an original story than a mlp story.
-Rushed arcs. We now get to see other lands. Unfortunately, we don't get to learn more about them. How did King Meowmeow rise to power if he wasn't worthy to the throne? Why is Orithia so much like Griffonstone in terms of society? Why did Celaeno not tell them earlier? What the heck is Cunabula?! And how does this tie into G5?
-Underutilisation of characters, it really affected Spitfire, Lyra and Bon Bon especially regarding the latter two's role as background ponies and known by fans for the spy jokes that at least Gameloft cared enough about.

Anyway, I'll at least give them this, it's still better than Season 9 since the twist was planned and not a last minute decision that will end being the worst writing decision no matter how you look at it. Whitley did apparently promise us something good but due to the pandemic and corporate interference that seem really obsessed with G5's potential that he cut many short. Last minute decisions are different from planned decisions, cause regarding the latter, did it not occur to Jim Miller that it could go a better way? And he probably had extra time to reconsider. Of course, maybe Hasbro would have not greenlit Grogar being real whatever their reason is but still.

Despite my disappointment, its still not bad compared to Ending of the End and therefore I do look forward to how it ends, again.

That's true, but that's what happens when you do not know your limits and do not respect the rules that were there for a good reason, as seen around many fanfiction writers, Whitley stretched himself so far, that he ended up with a broken work which should not have been launched. But at least he tried to stick to his script rather than get it broken, reorganized and half-heartedly produced as seen at the end of S9 when "Ending of the End" was aired.

The Grogar twist was one of the biggest disappointments in all of MLP history. Hasbro approved Whitley's work because the whole case of the five "harmony trees" was actually fraud, which did not work properly, as Silverquill discovered in his review. All the kingdoms that had these "element trees", even when these were activated, did not seem to live up to what these were meant for, and when Zecora found the Tree of History, she met a miniature of herself.

This indicates that the Harmony is involved, and that "she" took and corrected these failed trees. Whitley will probably let the Harmony spread to the whole world — with the ponies. It was possibly his final triumph as a writer for G4.

I definitely can imagine that if the pandemic didn't happen, we'd still see a rushed comic, though it would be at least extended somewhat.

Also, in all honestly, i think that the Knights of Harmony not being ponies is somewhat bad, but at least they weren't the G1 ponies, that would've been way worse.

Well that, but I was hoping they were ponies. But turns out they were never part of the legend and yet apparently the sixth tree while the previous ones were forgotten. So in a way, we associate Harmony with ponies than these mooks. Speaking of which, these guys definitely embrace harmony like order and power, Cozy would be proud.

Besides, Whitney's script had become deeply controversial, he had gone too far, as with the last movie of Star Wars, George Lucas intervened and stopped the first writer who had become too "free-thinking", and inserted a second who followed the rules completely . IDW did not.

Was that really bad? What did I missed about it? I heard few things, but nothing so big to compare it with Star Wars lol

And come to think of it, I think it will be like how Sega gives equal treatment to both Classic and Modern Sonic.
Yes, wanted to make that comparison, don't judge.

G4 was the reason that bronies existed, so why throw it away?

Speaking of which, i feel Hasbro may give equal attention to all gens (G1, G2, G3, G4 and G5) of MLP, comic wise.

The thing is, we don't know how much of the decision was Hasbro's and how much was IDW's. I had assumed there would be ample demand to have G4 and G5 comics on shelves side-by-side, but IDW might not have the resources for that.

We'll see what happens when the comic industry has recovered from the pandemic. One would certainly think that with the fandom being what it is, it would make no sense to toss G4 aside like last year's iPhone.

The best answer so far, for now hasbro is ambitious with G5, and wants to cancel everything from G4, so that the fans have no choice but to adore his new series and that it has the same success as G4, I see that many fans already They gave themselves completely to this new series and criticize those who are still faithful to G4, because I think that G5 will not have the same success … until now there are many fans who do not accept this new aspect of the characters, also the story originates With the failure of Twilight, all the segregated and racist species, I think that works against those who love G4, it's like telling them that everything the mane 6 did, it is not worth it just to bring new Ponies, I hope IDW Bring more FIM comic, and that Hasbro passes his ambition with G5, I for my part will not see it, I keep waiting for IDW to bring more G4 comic, I am upset with this S10, it is very deficient
