I still don't agree.The problem with DPS meters isn't that damage isn't important, it's this:Average Damage done per second across an entire boss encounter is almost never relevant.Except for the very simplest fights - Patchwerk for example - the key to the fight is overcoming the mechanics. It's not about doing X Damage every second, it's about killing the whelps during Phase 2, or killing the portal, or avoiding the fire etc. So yes it's about damage, but it's also about doing the damage in the right place at the right time, and DPS meters don't tell you that, or - more correctly - some do, but people don't link that. If you're doing low damage on a simple fight you're doing badly.But if you're doing low damage on a complicated fight, a DPS meter won't tell your if you're doing well or not.
