It's still more likely that someone who has the achievements also has the proper enchants and gemmings. But it is less likely and quite uncertain that someone who has the right sockets and right gemming also has the experience to make proper use of his equipment. Especially with all the Badge and now JP farmage~

I can go heroics all day long and farm 5,5k+ GS, buy all proper gems and enchants, but still be a total tool when it comes to raiding.

If i have the raid achievements chances are high i have the proper equipment though.

So imo SkillScore says more about a char than Gearscore does.

HF continueing with gearscore, I will sport this one from now on instead and try to convince as many people as I possibly can to switch to this one as well and drop GS altogether.

Actually, GearScore does all of these things. Here are some screenshots to enlighten you.

This shot shows the experience the player has in various raids, showing how many times that player has killed which bosses.

You may be a troll, you may just be an ignorant tool. Either way, nice try. Carry on now.

THIS tool is just an Achievement checker, Like GearScore is just a Equipment checker. Dont tell shit about the people that plays the toons.

It's sad..these days you gat go Naxx if you dont have +5K gs ....tsk tsk
This tool is far more valuable than GearScore. It should help when I get pugs together on my death knight alt instead of going to each player's armory and making sure they have at least 9-12 encounters down in their achievements. I don't think I've ever came across someone who's been dead and received credit for 9+ boss kills in ICC10. All of the players that I've picked up have been resourceful and seemed to know what they were doing, so the statement above is quite ignorant. 999/1000 times someone with an achievement is able to reproduce that achievement's requirements again in my pugs.

Sounds great... the people who complain are the one's I want to weed out. Odds are they have crap gear and crap raiding experience. Thanks for helping me keep them out of my groups.

Doesn't this just prove that GearScore has no meaning? SKillScore looks to me like an achievement checker which has some meaning (like that you have actually been in the instance) whereas anybody can boost their GS by doing meaningless amounts of heroics for emblems.

Ooops - many thanks for this - changed it to CTRL!

Gear Score also tells you how many times a player has killed each boss (both normal and heroic, 10 and 25 man).
GearScores does literally none of these things. Are you a troll or did you never read the description?

Here is what the description says:

Whenever you mouseover a player in the game GearScore will scan that player's gear and calculate a score. The scores are based on how blizzard assigns stats to an item and take in account ilevel, rarity, and equipment slot location.

So yes I know full well what it measures and what not.

Anyway since this is not the gearscore addon comment space this is my last comment here,
your response doesn't wreck my post, it actually validates it completely.
You're the typical gs user.
Not that i care about either addon, they both are doing essentially the same thing.... but i dont think you have looked at GS recently at all (and by recently i mean the last 6 months)?

Do you need to have/check for appropriate gear for the zone you're raiding?
Absolutely.
Is there a single number that can measure your "readiness level"?
"Maybe", but it's definitely not your GS or Skillscore.
Dude........WTF do you think Gearscore does?

These two statements completely WRECK your whole post.

Gearscore puts a "score" on the gear you have. The same gear that you are going to "inspect" on the players thru the Armory or "the inspection". I think it kind of saves you the time of having to do "the inspection".

Now, Do I think it equals skill? NO! Do I think it equals DPS? NO!

I think gearscore Equals "Potential". Thats all you can measure when doing a PUG. By either looking at the toon, the Armory or an addon that does that for you. Sure...you can check gear, achievements, ask guildies and do all kind of bullshit to see if a dude should come to your PUG, if you want to spend 3 hrs making a 25man PUG. People need to get used to the idea of a "tool" to check people for pugs, and accept it.

If used correctly, it "helps" you make a decision about who to bring, thats all. This tool could also be used for the same reasons.

I don't mean any disrespect towards the posters here in this comment thread, but don't post at all if you're going to down the AddOn. It is his AddOn, and just be constructive! We're all here to share and use AddOns!
