I have been reading some people claiming to enjoy grind games because other players know how to play their classes better? Well this doesn't make much sense at all considering that the majority of overwelming evidence actually indicates players who prefer grind games, prefer repetition, and an mmorpg is more dynamic than lets say, diablo, so therefore the person who enjoys grinding actually is less likely to be good at their class, considering they prefer to do the same thing over and over, which never happens over the long run in any mmorpg. Maybe you do open up an attack with a stun twice in a minute, but the other players reaction is never the same every time, to the previous time, where as in grinding, it is.
Furthermore, in WOW people with better gear, who have grinded in more dynamic environments, are often overpowered by players slightly lower on the curve regarding gear, indicating once again that grind does not equal skill.
Finally, grinding can actually make players worse at their class, because they may be playing their class wrong, and psychology dictates that practicing something wrong is worse than never of learning it, when attempting to do it right. I.e. unlearning is harder, than learning.
So for those who say they prefer grind games because it makes other players better, are not only wrong, but are trolls, seeking to create unessessary controversy for an archaic form of gaming known as grinding, after all, pac man is grinding, and so is pong...have we not moved passed this simplicity? Or should i say retardation of reality.
