Bah exams here too!
Nov 30th 2010 11:42PM I think you answered your own question in a way. I don't really think there is anything blizzard can do about it. I mean, regardless of what they do, people will find a way to set some bar or fence that separates the "geared" from the "scrubs". Like you mentioned, even if they scrapped ilvls people would just go by like tier ("Must have 3/5+ T15 gear!") or by HP ("Tank must have 150k+, DPS/Heals 90k+!") or what already exists to some extent ("Link achievement!" "Must be 6k+ DPS!").
It's just part of competitive nature to try and find some way to show that I am X amount better then someone else, and most gamers have a hard competitive streak. Might not be compete with others, might just be against themselves. So they'll figure out a way to track their progress and the progress of those around them.

Personally, I'm more of a fan of spread out then cluttered (I guess compressed would be a better word to use here) but when you're dealing with a lower resolution I guess you do have to make some sacrifices to get the amount of information you want to play with. But Kormex certainly shows that there isn't too much of a sacrifice that needs to be done to obtain that. Just some good thinking and many years of tetris experience.
