Ability to hide DPS as of Parsers meters through interface in RIFT
  

There are many people who need DPS meters but there are many who do not need them. What if we had the ability to disable the broadcast of our production for these analyzers / meters combat cannot read that you do not want people to see? How to disable or activate the interface configuration? I am sure that the brains could do this easily trion. Anyway if this feature was probable would you permit otherwise immobilize? Do you assume this is a good idea?

It's understood that except you are grouping by entire goal is be top of DPS charts at cost of all additional aspects, DPS parsers are actually useful for figuring out who is being idle and not pulling the weight. If the people who are not idiots then they will understand that there are a lot of mitigating factors in the way out DPS lists. The analyzers are useful because it is the only way to resolve who among a group of X DPS is not pulling weight. With tanks and healers, who do not need this type of analysis, as it is usually pretty clear when someone is failing.

In fact, itís very right that elitism DPS meters and the drama that caused wow is newly had to apply a cooldown brutal to kick somebody as of a group. People were just getting kicked to the left and right because omg its numbers were slightly lower than the standard crazy think is acceptable. If the tools can be used responsibly by the leaders of attack, but a misuse of the example is much greater than the time is used constructively.

DPS meters are fine if a person knows how to utilize them however a lot of people do not and become epeen measuring sticks and hurt the game. I've seen so many damage meters addicts end up dying in a fire because they want a counter top. Others did not produce a cure or pull the mob of a healer for fear of meters. Your idea is interesting, but would only work if most players trion disable that default could set off.

This would be a good thing since such groups will not be fun anyway. The answers here show that the meter is not measuring about you, will try to show others and disregard them if not done to your standards. I think it would be an excellent idea, except for one case. If you're fighting another team, the numbers should show regardless of the setting.
