Oh, no, it automates the process of inspecting a character, looking at their equipment, their gems, their enchants, and evaluating their gear based on someone's algorithms to determine how effective that player could be when played properlyYes. So?
Providing information is not automation.
(meaning, how the guy with the algorithms thinks you should, int he hypothetical "average dungeon or raid").This is false.
GearScore doesn't tell you who to and not to invite. It's still up to raid leaders to make that decision. And the recommendations it does provide are very lenient.
it also takes a look at that character's progression and how many times they've killed certain bosses. it gathers that data together, and based on the creator's algorithms, creates a number which represents the summation of the value of a player.Not only does it not do that, even if it did, it's still just providing information. It's not automation.
That, my friend, is automation, plain and simple.Nope.
