    That is the problem of having Internet and large community with enough game-mechanical, math and programming savvy people: complex (as in, harder than 3rd grade math) gear systems just stop working. Anyone who cares about min-maxing has to follow guides that pop up weeks before next patch rolls out or worse - use external sites to optimize their gear.
    I'm talking about points in time when secondaries meant something. ArP in Wrath, you tried to stack as much as possible to get to 100%, ilvl wasn't a big deal if it had the proper stats. Or Monks with Rune of Reorigination in MoP, trying to balance your stats perfectly so that the one you wanted it to switch to was a close to the others as possible. Those things were fun. Seeing a piece of gear that is 10 ilvls higher and it's automatically better is not fun. It's not there yet for most classes, but I worry it's heading there.

    I do not care for whatever systems they implement IF they let you choose which one your raid want to use. It should not be gated and forced choice for something so touchy in terms of subject. Let me make a group loot for my guild or let me make this pug personal loot etc. I do not get why this is not a thing from Blizzard it makes no sense.

    I think as well from a fantasy perspective group loot was always more "fun" when everyone races to loot the boss after it died to see what it dropped and see if they had a chance at "x" item. Now all it is, you loot an item and instantly get 10 whispers "DO U NEED?!?!" like jesus christ lol.

    Oh, that time in MoP when you had to go to AskMrRobot after getting each piece of gear to potentially reenchant, reforge and regem half of your gear. Yeah, fun times that were.
    At least with ilvl being king you don't need external sites to make decisions about your gear.

    And Blizzard is going to know who is Timmy and who is not how? By omniscience? By having to wade through tickets and handing out punishments? And what then when they do identify Timmy? Code a solution that makes a huge check against a database of names and blocks ML for just that account?

    Except I didn't. But thank you for playing.
