And how is this related to for example an experienced player playing an alt that has not yet acquired the necessary gear? In my opinion gear is always a representative of work, not skill. I am also vehemently against gear progression MMOs, and would be out of here in a flash if there existed a meaningful sandbox mmo alternative, with preferably no gear progression or class system.

Great. Time to throw on some LvL 20 mods and bolster through SM OPS. Cheap repair bills. Thanks

SOME work is better than NO work - good for rotations and awareness if anything. Also good for incidents like a guy not knowing he has an interrupt or what that interrupt is at Draxus, in 168 / 180 gear. Or tanks that couldn`t sink in their thick skulls that the weekly boss in SnV needs to face AWAY from the raid.

However, your original question was answered. You don`t like the answer, that is your problem, not mine. We could also argue that NiM progression is just muscle memory and training monkeys in top gear, but then we`d need to provide proof that most of the servers have 5/5 NiM progression, which is slightly unrealistic. So work has its meaning - and work for gear is better than no work at all and a big mouth.
