I've been seeing a lot of talk about people wanting a "number squish", as in, lowering the numbers across the board to avoid things like 20 billion HP bosses, 10 million HP tanks, 2 million DPS, etc. I've always thought "why does it matter, I like feeling stronger than I did last expansion". However, I've been trying to get my RL friend to get the game back, he hasn't played since Wrath and he was watching me play. He saw my DPS and how much HP I had, and then quickly decided "that's so stupid, i'm not getting this game back". I feel that's an absurd reason to not play a game.
Personally, I think a number squish would make people feel weaker and make more people angry than happy. I don't see any problems with big numbers, and it's nice to feel so much stronger than I was the previous expansion(s). The gear and strength grind is what keeps me going, much like it does in games like D3.
How do you feel about it?
