Did you see someone else berate someone on the forums, think they were a cool kid, then decide you wanted to be like them? Because holy crap you are an idiot. You are talking down to someone more progressed than you are now. What's it like to be so braindead you can only parrot what someone on the internet said, and be completely incapable of accepting there's more than one way to solve a problem?
Theck can theorycraft and simulate all he wants, but until people play perfectly and have 100% uptime for the available active mitigation stuff, people are always gonna perform worse than the theory predicts. So no matter what, there's a function of skill that determines the amount of damage you take, and until Theck proves there's an encounter where not being expertise capped or getting maximum HoPo generation makes success impossible, people can find other ways to win.
Playing optimally has simply never been necessary. All that matters is playing well enough you win. There have been many clever, even lazy, solutions to encounters by too many guilds too count. Given how fast heroics have been cleared, I doubt this tier is any different.
I am not sure what your saying.
Are you saying that Demo means that you dont need to be "right" in your gearing strategy to succeed? Aren't you saying that as well?
Are you saying that Theck is wrong? and until its proven that you cant be successful raiding unless you do it thecks way you can do it how ever you want?
Are you saying I am wrong? because i quoted theck when it didn't agree with what a more progressed raider is doing?
I think, what demo is saying...that you may disagree with, apparently, is that just because you managed to be 4/16 heroic with spirit gems...doesnt mean you need spirit gems to be 4/16 heroic.
Of course...i may be wrong :)

Glad to see we're on the same page.
You talk down to people who do things differently. Don't pretend we are on the same page.
Thats what he said though.
Still don't understand what your trying to say.

I talk down to Demo because he picked a fight with me.
If you can't connect the dots between his implication and "carry", I can't help you.
I dont know what to say to this...have you tried telling him that "sticks and stones" phrase?
I'm fine thank you for the offer.

Such a waste going for hard cap.
You honestly don't know the value of it.
Don't downtalk something you don't understand.
This is a silly statement and only shows how little you understand about the active mitigation system. It also assumes that the amount of passive stats you can obtain by forgoing maximization of your holy power generation will make up the difference, at least to a significant enough degree to matter. That's a pretty huge assumption to make.
You're not going to have 100% uptime if you're not a monk. Ever. Active mitigation is about utilizing it when you most need it. Keeping it at 5 HP all the time just in case is a waste. Burning HP the instant you get it all the time every time is also a waste.
Tank damage fluctuates, and you need to be able to prepare/react accordingly. Theck's theorycrafting suggests the most effective method of handling your damage intake.
If you're succeeding without playing to the best of your ability, you ARE being carried. You are forcing other players to make up for your inability to play. If you don't time your ShoR to coincide with that second or third Overwhelming Strike, you're forcing your healers to heal you harder, possibly external you, among other things.
That's the definition of being carried.

Wouldn't that make the entire raid fit that description of being carried? Especially in less than stellar groups. The whole raid is carrying the whole raid?

Combat tables, diminishing returns and you!

Being carried is when you take yourself, clone 9 or 24 of you (xmute your gear to the spec u need) and realise that you would not have cleared the content.
