Yep.... I'm not saying get rid of gear check. I agree that in a DF it's necessary. Mostly I'm referring to people as individual players. I remember watching LFG and people saying "Must have gear score of <insert random # here>" I never had that problem, I had a guild to run with, but it got to the point where people were to dependent on gear score as a determining factor as to who they would group with. Now that I say it like that though it is off topic isn't it.
