    This is a very tricky question for many reasons. On a personal note I don't compare recount to other addons. <snip>


    Thanks for the reply! That helped clear things up a little bit :)

    So does Recount track each individual player's combat flag or does it start a timer for each player based on when they first do damage in an encounter? The latter could explain the strange (to me at least) numbers that I see when one player is top on Damage Done but a different player is top on DPS (even in single-target boss fights at close range).

    I think that's where my disconnect is - I'm used to the old DamageMeters add-on which, apparently, uses a global encounter timer for each group fight meaning that the longer a player waits to jump in, the lower that player's DPS will be when combat ends, regardless of total damage done. DamageMeters also reduces a dead player's DPS as the fight continues, which can make analysis of some fights difficult.

    Great add-on - I just started using it last week and it's been great, but I do have some questions that I haven't been able to dig up answers too:

    How is the DPS meter calculated and how does it differ from other DPS add-ons? This is a question that comes up a lot in raids when people argue over whose meter is "right" ;)

    How can the player on the top of the Damage Done meter for a single boss encounter show up third on the DPS meter for that same encounter? (this is another one that has been causing a lot of confusion...)

    Thanks!
