While its pretty impressive the way that people are able to break the game down into these complex formulas and calculation, part of me wishes that the exact math and algorithms behind WoW's gameplay was more hidden.Wasn't it at one early point in WoW's lifespan that you couldn't see the exact amount of hitpoints a mob had, only the percentage it had left? Maybe I just didn't realize how to display it at the time, or didn't have the right addon, but it made WoW more of a "feel" game than a numbers game, and as a result was more immersive in my opinion. I know, I know, you really don't ever have to look the formulas and equations if you don't want to, and can still play the game just fine, but with the amount of theorycrafting that goes on now, WoW is feeling more like a 3D spreadsheet program then a game. Just takes away a little of the mystery and mystique of it all.
