any question to game balance

I looked at the website https://snowcrows.com/benchmarks/ with benchmarks for raids. To what extent does Anet consider such benchmarks regarding PVE content?

    The theoretical benchmarks hold no weight, as they have access to real world statistics, and use those to determine balance changes. Considering 90% of people running meta builds aren't capable of reproducing benchmark performance levels, its easy to see why they would favor their statistics over some website's theoretical.

    Best guess?

    they never look at those and design the game based on a plan that they came up with only deviating from that out of pure need or total dissent of the player based.

    At least that is how it feels for the last few years.

    I questions why should they look at them?

    They clearly stated that they do look at websites like metabattle and snowcrow for feedback
