    You still have not linked your Armory, nor the Armory of the tanks that are beating you. What doesn't your little brain comprehend that gear has alot to do with it? A tank in 517 gear will outdamage a dps thats in 450s anyday with or without vengeance.

    I'll disagree with this partially; I think that tank DPS should be significant, just not as much as it is now.

    You still do pull numbers. You should play your class (and this game) because it is fun, the fights, the aspect of playing with friends and the enjoyment of actually playing the class, the rotation, the skill. If the fun aspect is beating other people in a chart, then go play on an Excel Spreadsheet ...

    I agree the tanks dps should matter. Like it did in WotLK, tanks did about 50%-60% of the damage dps did. Not like is it right.

    The fun aspect is beating people on the meters as well. That's why a dps picked up a damage dealing class/specc, not tank or healer.

    Proving to the other players that you are more skilful than them by beating them on an arbitrary chart is usually where the whole rivalry between raid-mates starts.

    When the tank is beating a proportion of the raid on that chart, whilst also doing his Tank duties, it saps that rivalry.

    Maybe DPS should be looking for the Least Damage Taken chart instead of the DPS chart to prove their skill?

    They don't. That statement is ridiculous since the tanks receive the same dmg buff as dps do so it doesn't affect balance between the two at all.

    And when you have bad dps still doing less than the tank, they'll complain that they're being emasculated by the tank and create a thread titled "How can people be okay with Tanks?"

    You cannot base anything from top log parses, because surprise, surprise once guilds have this on farm they stack buffs/tactics to pull out these parses, it's as far from a true indication as you can possibly get.

    These logs never had tanks in the top 10, or 100 or 1000 or 10000 or more. Because surprise surprise, tanks didn't do the damage they are doing right now.

    OP - raids are about group effort.

    Your post is "me me me". Vengence is not the problem, your attitude it.
    No game will ever kill wow. Though Blizard themselves are making a pretty damm good attempt lately.

    THE FIRST RULE OF BRAWLERS GUILD IS YOU DO NOT GET INVITED TO BRAWLERS GUILD.

    Hey, Mr. Waterisbest, you know your basing all these assumptions of yours on a flawed interpretation of data? you keep linking that spec score on raid bots, and those numbers don't mean what you think they mean. they are determined by how good each spec is compared to the others. they are also only compared to the same role. brewmaster being on top means its the best of the tanks. click the overall dps, and you see all the tanks quite far under the rest of the dps pack, barring the constantly mentioned AoEfest fights this tier. all 2 of them.

    Like that^.
    Although if you dig even a little bit, you realize that's mostly a product of our strategy (which is weird, not gonna lie. It started because we had horrid OT's the first couple of weeks that died if Elegon sneezed at them, and by the time we tried heroic we had enough DPS to keep doing it anyway), and as a result our OT does horrible DPS through pretty much no fault of his own.

    Vengeance is fine mostly because you can't add more tanks and have them still do as much DPS as a DPS. So there's no risk of pulling in more than maybe one extra tank in a DPS's spot, and if you REALLY care that much, you can be like our hunter and ignore me completely.

    Vengeance is the problem. I have never created a "qq" (as some of you will call it) thread ever before, and I have been on these forums for a VERY long time.

    Another thing DPS whiners fail to realize is having those high veng numbers make it more fun to tank. This is important because tanking numbers have always been low, by far the least represented role people play, and blizzard is always trying to come up with incentives to make them more appealing and fun to play. This is part of that.

    This is no different than the DPSers pulling on their mothers' dresses and crying that they have to wait so long in queue for dungeons and demanding blizzard fix it. It wasn't something that could just be "fixed" because you can't force people to play what is needed. Every DPS that was crying about the problem was PART OF the problem by not playing tanks or healers but expecting other people to for their own benefit. So blizzard adds goodie bags for tanks and occasionally healers when they're needed, then DPS community gets up in arms about that saying how unfair it is to give tanks more rewards, etc, yadda yadda, wha wha.

    Vengeance is just the latest thing DPS want to cry about. They want the entire game to revolve around them and specifically their fun and what they are doing only. They expect tanks and healers to be there for no other purpose than to facilitate them pulling big numbers on bosses. Then when they lose their e-peen dps race to a tank because of how the fight is designed, they rage and cry about it endlessly about how it isnt right that anyone else should ever be able to have fun doing big numbers unless they are DPSers themselves, which would just drive more people to DPS roles and away from tanking, making the world worse for prettymuch everybody.

    You can't have it both ways. Tanks need some fun too, and a lot of them that play these days are more attracted to the role because of those numbers. If you take that away, tank pops WILL drop and that will negatively affect everyone. And for what? So you can say a tank didn't beat you on the dps meter? Give me a break. Grow up and get a clue, stop complaining about something so unimportant. Your dps isnt going to go up anymore just because someone else's goes down.
    I like ponies and I really don't care what you have to say about that.
