D) Meters themselves provide no value without benchmarks to meet and said benchmarks are useless if they result in a failed run or wipe.
E) Meters provide only a little insight to the inner workings of combat. Real knowledge of classes, their abilities as well as observation will teach a player much much more about how to play than any meter ever will... give a man a fish, teach a man to fish... and all that.
[CENTER][COLOR=DeepSkyBlue]There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs. [/COLOR] [/CENTER]
