Infraction: Mod sass with a side of irony
Message to User:
Oddly enough, your response is pretty close to the mark in a few ways. You don't like how Simcraft models combustion and have a hand-wavy anecdote that you think should help people make a guess, instead of trying to, say, provide an actual improvement for the sim? Anecdotal guesswork is not what we do here. You provide no actual data, no logs, just a couple imprecise numbers that at best would be a single data point; why should anyone consider that useful? We sim things in the tens of thousands of runs to reduce variance, but actual individual parses will vary - it's not unreasonable that a single fight might be 10% different to the simmed average.
Re: You have received an infraction at Elitist Jerks
Providing a fact that simcraft undervalues combustion without a single complaint voiced anywhere in the message is whining, gotcha. But I guess making -any- post with any words in it following a major nerf must obviously be "whining" because duh. Oh, and it's my fault that the guy I was responding to didn't look shit up for himself and I provided an answer. Because clearly the mage forum is overloaded with contributors and conversation and needs to overmoderated to death.
See, THAT was "WHAAAH". The post you referenced was not.
A lot of people make posts after nerfs that don't contribute anything that's useful - yours was one of them. We trash-heap those posts. And yes, you're absolutely right, it is your fault that you replied to a lazy handholding request. We have a rule that says, quite clearly, not to do that. Just because there's not a lot of chatter on the mage forum isn't an excuse to make crap posts - you posted, but you didn't contribute.
We have posting rules, your post broke them, and you got infracted. How a whiny reply that demonstrates that you haven't figured out what those rules mean is supposed to counter the idea that I thought you were being whiny about the sim in the first place is a bit of a puzzle, but not one over which I'm going to spend time fretting.
