This is ... a strange post, so I will sum it up.
Dude is happy about being top 10 in america ... GEARWISE ??? Apparently ppl are competing to hive the highest score, which is based off of some mathematical equation that may or may not be correct.
Dude named BlelowZero is jealous and points out some random stuff about GEARSCORE. He is one of the following - jealous because his gear is better and he wants ppl to recognize it, or he has worse gear and is just jealous.
There's no reason for BelowZero to be jealous, as he DOES have better gear than Athena according to Diabloprogress. Athena is top 8 in terms of DPS, not 'Heroscore' which takes into account DPS, EHP, class-specific resource stats and life replenishment.
BelowZero is the number 7 DH in America, Athena is number 16.
BelowZero's DPS unbuffed: 306,998.33,
BelowZero's EHP unbuffed: 1,428,397
Athena's DPS unbuffed: 347,710.26
Athena's EHP unbuffed: 396,167
I guess the thread title is misleading as Athena claims to be top 8 DH, when he's actually top 8 in terms of DPS only. Even if you don't like the Heroscore calculation, if you look at the stats above, BelowZero has 3.6 x Athena's EHP, and Athena has 1.13 x BelowZero's DPS.
Draw your own conclusions...
Not taking sides here, just presenting an objective argument. I don't know either of these guys.
