"Some WoW players want to ban Recount."
"Some 'bad' players want recount out."
"Therefore, if you want Recount banned, you are 'bad.'"
Ive seen like 4 or 5 posts about banning it, I don't know if it is. But, I don't want it banned.

But your post is rather mean and harsh.

You like making stuff up so you can pull out your epeen and flaunt how large it is? Get over yourself.
It's not going to be banned.

But your post is rather mean and harsh.


Morons deserve nothing less than to be treated in a mean and harsh fashion.

People who complain that Recount is bad for this game are morons.

This is the one that kills me, I'll gem and chant stuff I know I am replacing in a few days.

To be fair, I've yet to see a rational reason to ban it.

I myself am not in favour of a ban (hell even I use Recount myself to look at my own dps) but the majority of the players using the tool are doing so to advance WoW's sub-standard playerbase by labelling those who don't fit their criteria (Blizzard's criteria notwithstanding) "bad."

At least that's one tool Diablo 3 lacks.
I don't want the addon banned. I want posting it in raid chat to be banned. Those of us that care about the numbers have recount/skada. The only reason people post in raid chat is to flex their epeen.
My thoughts on Recount (and similar):

Recount/Skada is a tool, when used properly, tells a story about what happened in an encounter. Yeah one chapter of that story is DPS but there are so many other good chapters! Interrupts, damage taken, damage done, uptimes, dispels, deaths... I can get lost in a World of Logs post. All the graphs and information telling me exactly what was happening. Fascinating really.

Read the whole book and you might end up liking it ;)

As much as I despise recount, I don't think it's a good idea to ban it. Overall, it's a good add-on which helps to improve yourself. Problem is, the majority of players don't have a clue how to use it. It's a bad player make add-on look bad - issue, as usual.
I have another idea to anyone who seeks to boost a party-member's ability to play:

Instead of berating them for a lack of DPS/skill, if you know their class, politely give them a suggestion on how to play his/her class and in this particular boss battle. Else, it's better not to rant about how "bad" someone else is.

Cool you cleared normal DS twice I can see why you think you are so much better than players who do not pull "Sufficient" dps but, I would recommend not calling people "Bads" until you start clearing heroic content personally I myself do heroic progression but never call anyone bad because I know there is always someone out there better than me, take the advice it works wonders.
