Your post comes across as slightly elitist, but I know what you were going for. All I can really tell you about that though, is your fun, and your sense of success in game or out -- will always be different than someone else's. We all view and appreciate different things -- so be happy with your ways if they work for you -- but relinquish control or the idea that changing someone else is your job, your burden, or that they in any way prohibit you from what you enjoy.At the end of the day the only person we should ever compete with is ourselves. You can't change people .. not really. People are better taken exactly as they are, flaws in all. I once ran with a hunter who did pretty rotten dps for a hunter. He did enough to get by, but with his gear he could of done so much more. Guy was a blast to be around however -- had the best stories -- really lightened the mood in vent and in the raid. After a time people started to be real sticklers for DPS and the guy felt forced out of the raid. We replaced him with a hunter who did more dps but had the personality of a rock. The new hunter did more dps -- but we didn't progress more than we had before. Raids felt more stressful. People were more serious and it became less enjoyable. In the end, I wound up wishing we could have replaced the new hunter with the old one. Even on bad nights, he kept us laughing and kept the mood merry. Contributions are not all just numbers. Never forget that.
