What's your point? That's obvious. The difference is that how much mainstat you have says absolutely nothing without taking class and gearing choices into account, so it's a 100% useless metric. It's like looking for forwards for your new football team and only looking at how many goals they've scored without taking into account if it was in the world cup or during the lunch break at school.
It's about as accurate as flipping a coin every time someone whispers you to decide if they can come or not.

No, it really isn't.
1.
"Hi, can I come?"
"How much mainstat do you have?"
"1850"
"Cool."

2.
"Hi, can I come?"
"What's your gear like and have you done it before?"
"Mostly rakata with some columi, and I've done it in HM on my main"
"Cool."
