If they don't do the squish and you do 200,000 damage with an attack, it'll take you 3 hits to kill a monster that has 600,000 health. If they DO do the squish, your attack will do 2000 damage instead - but the monster will only have 6000 health, so you'll still kill it in 3 hits.
Previous expansion mobs are different, of course -- but that's not necessarily a bad thing for outside world mobs (from the perspective of someone leveling up right now, it's a better experience if a level 70 mob in Shadowmoon Valley is proportionally weaker than a level 71 mob in Howling Fjord as a level 40 mob is to a level 41 mob, or a level 90 mob is to a level 89 one, and so on), and they have a solution in the works for mobs in instances.
So long as the solution for mobs in instances works, your character doesn't grow weaker in terms of how fast you can kill a thing or what percentage of health you heal for or the percentage of your health that monsters hit you for, and so on.
imo they should do an algorithm squish instead... so the math would add out to show i.e. 302k instead of 302,XXX for each hit. it would allow us to keep getting stronger while keeping the system in check

OP made a really idiotic poll. Your character still gets stronger in relation to the rest of the content in the game. Learn how things work before making ur dumb poll that's just asking people to support ur view of things.
It's like I make a poll saying are DKs OP? A. yes B. very C. What's a DK?
Squish is happening power hungry nerds that don't understand maths and things just gonna get upset. Say that for a minute when ur doing ur 25 raid w/ no squish and u push ur spell and 5minutes later the spell goes off and things..

also i like to see my screen on default settings w/o addons just to make it so i can see through all the numbers. some of us aren't like u math studies like to see things not numbers on our screen
Characters aren't getting weaker. Anyone who says that doesn't understand the system and relationships between numbers.
Also, do you like bosses with a badzillion adds, that heal themselves or phase transitions after which the boss gains a ridiculous amount of health so you feel like you've done it before literally a minute ago without wiping? If not, you'll love the squish. Because otherwise every boss is going to be llike that. From now until eternity.
I mean if u anti squish people don't like reason and things with your numbers just look at Garrosh like Slant says. We gotta get work arounds these days just so we can have proper bosses that don't die to fast. Bosses just healing too much because we can't get the numbers as big as iu want em?
Also, you may want to look up bit shifting to get a better idea of how their setup works.
Oh, that thing you mentioned has nothing to do with people doing 10k or 100k damage/healing per second. Funny how you say that someone should learn how it works, while you apparently don't have a clue yourself.
Also, don't forget that some raiders quite like one or two patchwerk fights in a raid, even if it's only to relax between complex boss fights.
