I think I am going to rant abit, not against amr. Around two days ago raidbots had some problems and did not work, so I told my raid to try AMR for simming or even using BiB. The answer I got was “lol AMR”. I really do not understand why there is this behavior against AMR. I have been using it for quite a long time and latetly I am using is it conjunction with raidbots to compare the results and they pretty close. I am more than happy how AMR scores all my specs (playing druid).
I do not understand this denial on even trying AMR. One thing someone said was, I used BiB during 1st day of 8.3 and I got “wrong” results. By wrong he did not actually clarify what he ment, maybe wrong on what the community of theorycrafters are proposing. Maybe AMR was not 100% ready on day 1 of the patch (I cant remember this detail, sorry) but still there was an announcement. Maybe it should be 10 times bigger
I think the “problem” (notice the quotes) might be coming from the visual presenation of the results. When running AMR BiB you get a choice of gear and you need to click on each item slot to see the next in score gear. Some times the next in score might be ~0.4% worst which is not even noticable. On the other hand raidbot’s Best in slot produces a list and you can clearly see the %dps difference so you can decide easier if the 2nd in score might better for you.
Anyway, was just something I wanted to say out , since I detest not even trying something before you judge it.
