I don't understand what the big deal is.
There is no big deal about it. It's just that enthusiasts always want everything to go their way. When they don't get their own way, they b^tch and moan about it until they get over it. It's a natural part of the theme park off season announcements and construction.
Everyone complained about I305's layout when it was first announced.
Everyone is complaining about Thirteen right now.
I remember people being upset over Shoot the Rapids
Diamondback, Fahrenheit, Maverick, etc... etc... etc... They always complain.
In fact, I can't remember a year when coaster enthusiasts didn't complain about [insert new ride name here] ever (maybe in the early 2000s, but I can't really remember). It'll die down once opening day approaches and reviews start flowing in.
