While I'm a hardcore player myself, I would say that theorycraft is taking it too far. Games are meant for entertainment and fun, if I want to do math I'll go back to school. That's just me though. I'll say I think it's interesting, as there are so many areas you can improve to maximize your dps and so on, but the work needed just ends up too much. One thing is using a lot of time on a game, which I happen to do, but then do math more then you actually play the game? It's like work but in the game, with no pay. I'm kinda surprised by this whole TC thing, I have no idea have ppl can calculate all these things by using math, and I don't want to know how ppl make sense of it all. Those spreadsheets tell me nada, I prefer it if you speak english. I consider myself a fairly smart person, but I'm terrible at math, I'm like 0/10 on a scale. FYI there's more to being smart then knowledge of numbers.Imo playing and learning as you go is fun, you see what works and what doesn't in action.. doesn't take a genius. Saves a lot of time as well, for more play :P Kudos on the writeup though, I'm sure if you can grasp it and have the time/patience it's interesting.

I don't know about anyone else but I personally enjoy taking the time to TC my gear and play style. I enjoy the prestige I get when I raid with people who don't already know me and it allows me to see more of the game that I wouldn't have been able to see otherwise.Also... I'm a geek and I just enjoy working with the numbers and figuring stuff out. I can understand why some wouldn't like it but I really do enjoy the extra out of game time I spend on it.For Chase, you've made an incredible accomplishment when you have earned the respect of the Rogue community. We're generally known as a condescending group quick to point out that someone doesn't know what they're talking about. Hats off to you for being awesome enough to avoid our wrath.
