GSE shows and stores detailed information for players you encounter. For the most basic user, it will give you a numerical representation of the quality of other players' gear (their GearScore) and a summary of their talent specs, and it will display this information in their tooltip. For the advanced user, or pug leader, it will help you audit a player's gear, talents, and raid experience, so you can make well-informed decisions. Whenever you encounter a user, their detailed information is stored in a local database, so you can look over their information later, at any time.
Be sure to report any bugs you find, and we'll push out fixes to them as soon as we get them.
There are a lot of complaints that the GearScore number isn't as closely related to skill as it should be. For example, GearScore doesn't take into account a player's stats, talent specs, gemming, or enchanting. We strongly believe that there is no such thing as "SkillScore" and that a player's skill cannot be accurately represented in a single number. Furthermore, we don't want players to gem or enchant their gear in a certain way just to increase their GearScore. This is why we provide the means to efficiently analyze a player's skill through other means (and we're gonna be making this much easier over the next few updates). A single number can never accurately represent a player's skill, but we think a number that represents the quality of their gear is a great start for filtering out noobs from your pugs.
