First and foremost, the type of "raider" you are has no relationship to the type of "player" you are. That is a steriotype. Contrary to popular belief, all hardcore raiders are not necessarily better players than casual raiders. Their raiding progression has no direct correlation to how strong they are as an individual. While the vast majority of bad players aren't hardcore raiders holds true simply because hardcore raids aren't going to carry people that underperform. This does not infer that all casual raiders are weaker players.
Because Joe Warrior's raid kills more bosses than John Warrior's raid does, doesn't mean that Joe is a better warrior than John. The comparison of two raids (teams) is different than the comparison of two players (individuals). Take professional sports for example. If a football team wins the Superbowl, does that mean that every player in every position on their team is the best in their position? No. The success of the team while based off the skills of each of the individuals, does not say that they are more successful as individuals.
