I wish Blizzard would designate some servers as specifically for "Elitist Jerks" players. If there can be RP and PVP servers to support those play styles, then as extreme as the "EJ" way of playing can be, EJ players deserve their own designated homes. (While they're at it, how's about some Chuck Norris servers too!)Whether to SIM or not, or even to heavily research things outside the game or not, isn't a practical "choice". There's no question bringing in outside knowledge works and gives the player a really substantial edge. Steroids do the same for physical sports, with identical arguments for and against. (Breakfast Topic: Roid-rage vs Nerd-rage, which is worse?)If you are a Sim kinda gal/guy, please be understanding of folks that aren't, and maybe even consider whether you really ought to be playing the same "WoW" that they are. "Elitist Jerks" was chosen as a deliberate reminder that playing to win and playing to have fun are often not the same thing and forgetting that can make you look like a real prick.Use your deep knowledge to seem a wise oracle, but accept that other players may have other priorities than winning. Refusing to sim, or watch YouTube videos, or take your advice and respec fire doesn't necessarily mean that they are lazy or that they are letting the raid down. It could just be that they play for different reasons than you do.The "World of Closetcraft" lady at Blizzcon being one heck of a great example :)
