I think that last point is a good distinction for TG to make about any topic. What is the opinion of players who play on:
1. Casual accounts
2. Semi-hardcore accounts
3. Hardcore, 24/7 account
...about any specific topic.
TG has had many random surveys over the years, but I doubt they really took this into account. Certainly not while also taking into account playing style (heavy fighting vs heavy simming for instance). I have no clue about the grey area specifics, but it sounds like Blackblade might also not be taking these distinctions into account...?
