I don't fault people for using gearscore to convey a general level of where your gear is at. That's what the addon is used for. Getting a GENERAL idea of where someone's gear is at.There are some problems when people adhere to strictly to it. Gearscore does not take all factors into account. What if I have a trinket that is lower ilevel than one I'm currently using but is much better for my class/spec? Overall my gear has gotten better, but my gearscore will drop because it doesn't account for things like that. It also doesn't account for some players being just plain terrible. Gearscore doesn't save your ass if you stand in the fire.Some of the community are using gearscore correctly; to get a quick at-a-glance idea of where someone's gear is at. Too many are using it as a crutch thinking that everything they need to know about a player is right there in that color-coded 4 digit number.
