I'm just curious to know what makes a bad site bad in terms of rotation, gearing, and all other aspects to min/max your character. I ask this because it seems as though a site will go through phases where it's 'okay' and then gradually (or abruptly) turn to being the butt-end to a joke.
I understand that, in order to min/max, you need to use a certain spec, rotation, have specific gear and have that gear properly configured but seeing as how you are looking at the specific goal of optimizing your character to be as close to perfect as possible, how can some sites 'get it' while others have a community-painted sign to 'get out'.
- If all this data is being pulled out of SimCraft or some other theorycrafting math, is there an 'acceptable' amount of inconsistency due to being Simulated when compared to other results?
- Are those who originally programmed the software or created the system replaced by less experienced players or simply inexperienced themselves which gradually made an impact on the content?
- Did they get too popular among the more casual-related players and associate itself with the idea among some players that 'casuals=bad' and that idea spread?
Like I said, I think it's weird that sites which have the intentions of further developing your character can be used as a rallying point of what not to do or to simply be ignored altogether when it seems as though it was the opposite attitude when first released.
I've left the names of the sites out on purpose to see how long it takes before it becomes obvious as to which it/they may be.
