For me the thrill is in the highs and lows. Thinking in terms of curves ruins the fun. For me thinking in terms of mathematical curves and average damage outputs is like thinking about your favorite baseball team in terms of baseball stats. Some people love it because they love the mystical qualities of math but for me thinking about curves is a classic case of killing to dissect.

Our meddling intellect
Mis-shapes the beauteous forms of things:—
We murder to dissect.
