Wrong, Jaq.You know what he's talking about, don't try to twist the argument. His points are against the false dichotomy presented that "doing your best" is mutually exclusive with "having fun". This is not true; many people have fun challenging themselves to be the best that they can be. If you don't find that fun, do whatever you like. Feel free to "have fun" while playing suboptimally if you and your team accepts it. (I'm not admonishing you for doing so; it's simply mathematical that you are performing worse than someone who does care about that split second.)I can twist the argument the other way, Jaq. "I'd rather play with someone who legitimately cares about other people enough to make his (and consequently my) run smoother and more fun by optimizing his play." But I know better than to accuse you of being an unfeeling monster, serial killer, and Garrosh sympathizer (Yeah. I went there.) for merely presenting an opinion I disagree with. I'm sure you're a wonderful person. Sometimes.As an aside, what amuses me are people who ask accuse people who abide by Elitist Jerks to be unable to think for themselves. How do you think Elitist Jerks' contributers create their spreadsheets? Verifiable math. Optimizing DPS isn't a matter of opinion or thinking for yourself, but math, as WoW is a computer program.
