Let's say you, or you and your group, encounter 3 large even con bees. You fight them and after a while you kill all 3.
For that battle to live up to your expectations, what needed to happen?
A weapons/gear/level check (these may not be the bees you are looking for with that outfit, noobmeister)?
Some eye/hand coordination (bees can only be hit in the abdomen kind of thing).
Situational awareness (don't stand in the red)?
Use of limiting debuffs and crowd control?
Here is where I think I may be different than some: I just want to feel like I fought three tough bees, and was lucky to defeat them. If I do, that makes me feel like I am in a fantasy world populated by, among other things, scary bees.
I don't care about the mathematics or the strategy so much. Sure, I'm a team player, and will play my role and character as expected by my group.
But in terms of what pleases me, it's more like fishing. I hope the fish jumps and thrashes and puts the outcome in doubt somehow, so catching the fish means something. And I want the fight to be sufficiently engaging that I forget these are merely pixelated bees.
