I was asking for references to support your claim that all of the
players who don't master such tools flee the game. Since `DAoC
unleashed' and `ShowEQ' are your exemplar tools, I take it that you
want to use EQ and DAoC as examples of games that everyone except
the `elite warriors' have fled. Since I've never played either of
those games, someone else will have to tell me wether that'd be a
sane statement.
