    Default To all the addon naysayers

    So now that addons have been out a while, are any of the addon naysayers willing to admit they were wrong?

    No, the game hasn't turned into a dystopia where everyone with a DPS meter is a jerk and will kick people for not pulling 1k single target DPS in a t2. I'm sure people run into just as many jerks in random dungeons as before, addons don't change that.

    No there arn't any addons that "Play the game for you" or "automate" anything at all.

    All the addons I've seen just display information already displayed, in an easier to see/read/more customizable manner.

    Ohmygodnowai, I know, addons didn't destroy the game, and they wont anytime in the future. Bottom line, wow got to how it was with addons because of the people, not the addons themselves.

    Addons are a tool, put them in the hands of an intelligent human being and thats all it is, a tool, something to help that person change aspects of the UI or display the information he wants to display in a better manner.

    A tool in the hand of a ****** however, becomes a weapon, and can hurt himself and everyone around him.

    I think the people who were going to be jerks with dps parsers were already being jerks with dps parsers before the add-ons.

    But I'm pretty sure all my deaths in pvp are cuz of addons.

    And to date, I've not actually heard of anyone encountering one in the game.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    And we care about this why?

    Gearscore made my life as a sometimes-PUG group player in WoW a ton easier, because suddenly I could identify a group that I disliked just by looking at their public announcement. Made my life a lot more pleasant.

    I like being able to see what my DPS is without having to run some janky-java-app in the background. No, thanks.

    I know it is but for the young ones/elitist/whatever they are developing a tool like wow so they can flaunt their coolness to make up for their lackluster life.

    I don't care about gearscore, it has never affected me ever, who it does affect though are those that are not in stable reliable guilds and can not get into groups for dungeons/raids. I'm not saying don't make it we don't need it here I'm just letting the people that do worry about it and wonder that it is coming.

    I rarely did guild groups. I grouped with strangers a lot. Gearscore made it easier for me to have fun doing this, because I could rule out jerks before I even tried to join their groups.

    Gearscore requirement => sucky group

    It was like going to a party where everyone boring was wearing a name tag that said "WARNING: BORING".
