Affliction Warlocks again. :o
These rankings are so, so flawed. Statistically, there’s insufficient data for ranking specs. When you look at all percentiles, you’re including every terrible warm-up pull and learning pull. These provide nothing but ammo for context-starved FotM munchkins to use to discriminate against classes they dislike. There’s no news value here. There’s no educational value. This is just toxic trash posting.
Don't blame Wowhead or Wowlogs for people being literal pos.
Picture and rankings do not match?
ranking the specs based on the upper value and not a median or mean is certainly a choice..... Here's a tip, if a list tries to tell you feral is better than balance or that affliction is the best warlock spec, go ahead and ignore that list.
1. Some people will criticize that Affliction is up top because only good players play it, and only during bosses with adds.2. Then some people will say that they should show only the statistics from the top 5% of the guilds.If they believe that only the top players matter, then Affliction should definitely be at the top.What they really need are:1. Boss-by-boss statistics2. Statistics from the bottom 50% of the guildsThe worst players should be counted as the norm, instead of the best. Good players are not above normal.
These are always the most misleading, completely trash posts to ever be posted. It's nothing more than bait and just wrong at the end of the day, especially without proper context. Showing rankings for all percentiles alone is misleading, not to mention that Affliction looks "good" because of cheesing 1 fight in Mythic. The only thing I can reasonably think of is that WCL is paying for exposure basically, because in true value, this post is completely meaningless.
These are completely meaningless, its not based on enough numbers to make any conclusion and will change completely as more and more guilds kill higher bosses with different requirements.
Click-bait trash that will only serve to confuse people who half-read it, while anyone who fully reads the article will realize that it communicates nothing.
Windfurries rise up, we need to whine like the boomies, locks, and rogues if this is ever going to change :)
aRmS iS F-tIeR!11 these obnoxiously incoherent petri-dish rankings are pure nonsense.
The problem with these logs is that the data can't compete with player skill and enjoyment, too many people go out and reroll the meta but don't have the ability to play them to their optimal level, while plenty of skilled players are top dps in their raids with mid-low ranking specs because they just know what they're doing and love playing their chosen spec. More emphasis should be placed on enjoyment of the variety of classes and specs and less on this obsession over data and rankings
Kind of surprised about arms and demo being there, then again one of the warrior specs is bound to shoot up higher eventually.
Affliction on top. Wow never seen that before.
I play ret pally in our heroic raid and I'm almost always the top dps. I definitely think that the fact that I've been playing the spec for so long and the fact that I enjoy it so much plays a much bigger role in my performance being good than if I played a meta spec. I strongly recommend that everyone pick a spec that they like the mechanics/theme of and then invest the time to get really good at it. I guarantee you will see better results if you do that than if you follow flavor of the month.
