Assessing the damage at 1UP [update] {Joystiq}

Jan 6th 2009 11:38PM Dang... I expected the sale, maybe even cutting back on some of the content. But it looks like the entire 1up staff is gone and UGO is just going to use the name.

I'm going to greatly miss the several hours of top quality podcasts each week the most. Hopefully a lot of them can continue lending their voices and opinions elsewhere.

Take the player, not the class {WoW}

Nov 5th 2008 2:57PM "If indeed 'pure DPS' is even 5% better than 'hybrid DPS', then wouldn't any raid leader stack the last 14 slots with the 5% better classes"

It seems to me that when people make statements like this (and there are a lot of them made), they're ignoring the many many other factors that go into deciding how much DPS someone does on a given night.

There's gear differences, lag, different buffs, different encounters, the all important and nebulous "skill", and heck... someone just having an off night?

Maybe other people's experiences are different, but I see dps meters varying wildly from week to week even with the same group of people.

I just wish people would remember that these small percentage differences in theoretical dps are just that, theoretical. Maybe the shaman is above you on the dps meters because he's a better player than you.
