Can I just start off by saying… WTF.
Me and a friend are both fire mages, both have done identical PvP, M+, raid bosses etc. and our difference in dps PURELY from sims is 23%. That’s not out playable, that’s not close, and that’s enough to affect raid spots and overall raid performance. And this isn’t a rare occurrence. Across all my raider friends the difference in performance from lucky to unlucky people is as high as 30% for similarly geared players.
The lack of connect between skill/effort and dps is incredible. Bellular has a video about it, taliesin has mentioned it, method, limit have all talked about it. Please blizzard this is not okay.
It’s not fun to be high on dps purely for being lucky, and it’s not fun to be low on dps for being unlucky.
