@omedon666 Well you do have 666 in your name...just sayin'. :PAs to your point, the sad fact is, most people are pretty competitive, whether they realize it or not. Everyone wants approval, or some kind of slap on the back and a "good job!" said to them. It's part of human nature. From sports, to war, to love, we always want to be the "winner" or at the least, be noticed for our deeds. I for one, never thought I was very competitive. I had little interest in sports, though I watch occasionally, never play online games (Words With Friends being an exception), I've never pvp'ed in my four years playing WoW. But let a friend and I do dailies together, and I'm racing to get the quests completed before him. Absolutely no reason to that, but something clicks in my head and off I go. We both also play hunters, and constantly wage battle in our dps numbers. We couldn't care less about anyone else in a group, oit's just both of our numbers we look at (which are generally second and third, occasionally first in the dps meters).It's, silly, arbitrary and makes no sense, but that's just how it goes. Right or wrong, Blizzard realizes this aspect of human nature and plays to it, and I think does a pretty good job (outside of the damned FL dailies).
