I think you can rate one player as better than another. I think the real difference (regardless of hardcore or casual) is that some players care and some do not. I only care about developing the skills I actually use in the game. I don't care about developing whatever skills matter most to other people. The skills I actually use in the game are imagination and tenacity and survivability. My priorities in playing are developing a character that feels real to me. Also, since I end up playing by myself a lot due to my erratic schedule, also the ability to solo whatever content I want to do. So other players are probably better than me at PvP or raiding. They have better gear and the best spec and the best gems and enchants. I have no problem admitting that because I don't care about those things and I'll never be a part of those players' game or part of that competition. Not unless I'm the toon that's pulling mobs off them, because they've pulled too many in the middle of some mine or other. :P I don't care if someone bags on my spec and gear because my spec and gear isn't put together to be the best spec and gear, it's put together to help tell the story of my character and the only reason for me to rethink it is if something about it hinders the way I personally play. Since I don't raid or do dungeons, there's no reason for anyone else to be concerned with how I play my characters. So my advice to people who are upset by this kind of stuff, is to remember that you don't need to be "better" - you only need to be good enough to play your way. If you are able to play the way you want to, then you're good enough, and there's no need to care if other people are "better" than you.
