Quote from UsaSatsuiChronicles lead to the Reserve List.
The Reserve List is the most universally hated thing in Magic.
Therefore, Chronicles is hated.
It also was massively overprinted, and that did not help.
You said that in reverse order. The set was over printed, crushing prices, which made people upset. To reassure those people this wouldn't happen again, they made the reserved list.
You statement completely down plays the true reason why Chronicles is widely disliked.
