That's odd, the comment system ate most of my post. I'll try again:Yes, "low DPS is caused by SOMETHING"... and over 90% of the time that "something" is a lack of skill, willful ignorance, or both. Heck, 90% is probably too generous, it's probably closer to 99%. The point the article is trying to make is that explanations beyond mere skill/ignorance are the exception, not the rule.I, too, would have liked to see the role of coaching addressed more in the article. However, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Someone offering the excuses mentioned in the article probably isn't going to be very receptive student.""they are but one player; you've got nine or 24 others to look out for as well." This is an attitude is completely foreign to me. I would never look at my guildmates this way, and if people my raid leader saw me like this I would drop guild in a heartbeat. I don't want to be a nameless cog in a machine..."Wow. You COMPLETELY missed the point.If you "value your guildmates as friends", then you shouldn't expect them to carry you. And if you're doing significantly lower DPS than your friends, they ARE carrying you. The raid leader is responsible for making sure that doesn't happen. It has NOTHING to do "nameless cogs". Where did that even come from?
