Skill surely matters more than many other things, but in my little i still give big credit to the effort of gearing, gemming and enchanting.Gemming and enchanting gear is something that can be done with very little money compared to what dailies and quests grant us, it is not necessary to have the most expensive tinkers on every piece of gear. This is a "basic effort" to give a decent contribution to a dungeon run.If i met a player in a 5 man run who deliberately gimped himself by not gemming or undergearing for fun i wouldn't try to have him kicked from the party as long as he can fulfill his role to a decent extent, but i would still feel legitimate to blame him. Ok, simple heroics don't require the same performance than raids, but i'd still appreciate if you could put up say 16k out of your potential 20k dps and help us steamroll the random daily quickly instead of slacking to 9-10k, even if that still makes you top the charts.I'm cool with not everyone being the best player. Maybe you're playing your fourth alt and you don't have months of constant practice in the rotations. Maybe you're trying a new spec and you've not still gotten into it. Maybe you're just tampering with reforging strategies. Maybe you've just return from work and you just can only give it 70% of your brain. As long as you're decent i'm cool with it and i'm not going to blame. I'd feel entitled to blame instead if one is deliberately nerfing himself, even if he is still doing better than myself in the charts. And then, if he ended up performing worse than the others? "lolz i was running naked and still did almost the same dps you did you noobz" ? Big deal really!
