I guess the key question is - "are the bosses going down?". While I see the point about the others trailing your DPS, there's little motivation for them to be pushing themselves any more as long the shinies are dropping. PvE is about beating the game, not other players.

If you are doing normal modes the bosses go down unless the raid is doing something horribly wrong. A blues only guild has cleared all of Ulduar and ToC and is like 6/12 into ICC last I checked. Wrath raiding doesn't require gear just the ability to follow dance steps.So the only way many of us who aren't in hardmode guilds can stop DPS being boring is to push it and be competitive. The only way to really improve at something is to compete with people of similar skills.

Raptor if its the same one that I have been following they are actually 11/12 and have breached Phase 3 for Lich several times.

I haven't checked on them in a while. I need to bookmark it so I can link it when my guildies cry about how we need to farm some more or wait for the ICC buff to increase. >.>

The people in the guild you talk about are EXTREMELY competitive, do tons of research to eek as much performance from their blue-clad toons as humanly possible, and have a lot of passion for the game. The author explains that he did some research and got some gear and without much trouble topped the dps "by an alarming amount" meaning that the others aren't doing much at all. The REAL question would be "Are you progressing?"The same 7 bosses can be downed easily every week, but if you are stagnant, its not fun any more, which seems to be the case with the author.
