Take this warrior posting in this thread who is familiar with the addon and uses it on a daily basis, they have the target portrait basicly placed in the middle of their screen and that's all they see (I would immagine), as it's covering up the centre of your screen, but that has nothing to do with anything because as soon as they hear a sound may it be the enemies popping cooldowns or a sheep being casted they will just instantly react to the sound that their muscles has memorised and press the button that has been taught to press when hearing that sound.
it's basicly like training a dog to sit on the command of sit, when the word Sit has been said so many countless times their body will basicly just listen to you, as you are the LEADER and the person using the addon is the obeyer without question, as you do not lie and you do not trick them.
actually addons like dr trackers etc give more advantage than gladiatorlosa
you generally could not calculate drs of that many abilities that are currently in game, gladiatorlosa does not provide any information that couldnt be afforted by default ui
gladiatorlosa relives your eyes, and you are able to hear more things , why is it for you like vision>audio?
"no wait 70% Of all players wouldn't even notice or know what this means"
maybe 70% of non gladiatorlosa users just dont understand the spellings of the abilities and what it means?
if u forbid using gladiatorlosa or similar addons, players will use more addons like cd tracker, power auras, etc
players with better hardware, screen resolutions and so on, would see more things ,it just widen the gap. is it fine?
I know it is easier for our brains to hear sth faster than spot it on the screen, do you think the game should be all about vision/eyes?
Do u think i.e that shammies at 1500 mmr without any exp try to absorb(grounding) trap just because they use gladiatorlosa? I would really say, that players are doing all this just because of streams/pvp movies/pvp tutorials this really makes ppl play same style(like robots), not the addons.
the best way is not allow to use any kind of addons, but majority would be angry as fuck (non pvp especially)
gladiatorlosa helps, although it does not win a game(sometimes:P)
