Does anyone else find it fascinating that the same people who are arguing that Ascended gear doesn't affect gameplay and that the higher stats won't make a difference when in a pve or WvW environment are also the same people who scream and complain constantly that someone is using MF gear while in a dungeon or WvW thus making it more difficult for the team and dying constantly?
It's either one or the other, it can't be both. Sorry.
Either stats DO make a difference or they don't.
