That sounds pretty bullshit. You wanna know why, senpai? Because the care and planning to lay the foundation was placed all throughout the previous 2 seasons. It was explored in not one, but two additional pieces of book media filled with lore and depth which were hinted at in the trailers for the seasons and that they were developing concurrently or in between seasons. A few of whom were overseeing both the show and the books. They had the material. They had the inspiration. They had the setup. They had the talent.
BUT *SOMETHING* foul fell into the soup. Something that took that hard work, dedication, and care and turned it into utter garbage. And as of the moment, the only smoking gun that makes any sense in:
 turning Eclipsa and Globgor into a bunch of dindu nuthings when they were setup as easy villains to fill in two seasons worth of conflict
 deciding fantasy rascism was a critical story element where it wasn't before
 turning Marco and Tom into beta cucks incapable of being shown deciding or acting in their own self interest
 taking a central premise of the show ("I'm a maaaagical princess from another dimension" *fire*) and deciding to toss it into a dumpster, despite the trailers and stars own dialogue pointing to the opposite
 deciding that forcefully injecting an inferior love triangle to replace a superior one due to the shift in backdrop was necessary to maintain interest, despite the fact that the story and interactions were still as compelling as before
... the list goes on, but the point still stands. These people were talented. They already had 2 seasons under their belt, so they were experienced as well (ahshitherewegoagain.gif). There was literally no reason for them to fuck up as bad as they did. So then WHY would it happen? What variable changed from S1 and S2 over to S3 and S4?
