(Poll can be found here http://forums.riftgame.com/showthrea...-I-made-a-Poll!)
With a Sample size big enough to represent 50,000 Players:
68% Do Not want DPS meters in this game. (Be it 3rd party or developed specifically by Trion)
25% Do want DPS meters in this game.
7% Had no opinion.
There are the hard numbers.
The only question left is, should Trion strictly follow the majority or do they find a way to accommodate 25% of their player base.
My personal thought is this:
DPS Meters that are not spammable to chat and that look at the sole individuals DPS (not the groups or the raids) and is not real time (I.E. a function of the UI that you can bring up like a character window that requires you hit an update button to review the current data).
