Setup some PvE dungeons or PvP with identical teams and identical gear. If one team continually beats or out performs another can you say they are *smarter* Wakfu players.
Does some content require a certain level of gear? Yes. Does some content require a certain intelligence? YES.
If Wakfu didn't require brains or make people think, we wouldn't even be on these forums discussing any number of subjects. Damage calculations, team setups, starting positions, stat values, UB's, you name it. You can all argue until you're blue in the face about how much intelligence is required, that depends on the person. But please, do not say it requires none at all. People spend years playing these games and do not get the best gear.
There are players out there coming up with the strategies you all use to beat some encounters. I'm not saying they're smarter than you, I'm saying they figured something out you didn't.
MMO's are grinding games. Games of all types make you think.

Intelligence will lessen the time it takes to achieve some goals within the game. However , in general , my answer would be no. This game isn't generally speaking about intelligence so much as it is about how much time you can put into it(as are almost all MMO's i've played). The tactical aspects of the game exist but they are generally focused on very specific areas.
I dont really see how people can get upset about this though. Its very clear this game is targeted for an age group that in general is significantly younter than the American player base. The dev's have even mentioned this before. I don't get upset that my daughter's Dora explorer game doesn't challenge me intellectually , I'm not sure why ppl get so upset that Wakfu doesn't either.
Are you out there winning every PvP or PvE fight? Unless you answered yes, the game and the players in it must be challenging you. Can you beat Magmog? Can you win all PvP tournaments?
Create and run one of the top guilds. The best players are out there and will challenge each other. I won't argue the time needed to put into these games. If you want to challenge yourself against EQUAL opposition you need the gear to do it. Once you're there it's human vs human.
Play chess, seems easy enough doesn't it. The rules are much shorter than wakfu. Is everyone here claiming chess isn't a challenge? Go out and be the world champion then.
@Boredom: Just because people don't choose to challenge themselves in an MMO doesn't mean the game is "My Little Pony" You want to know the challenge I face every time i log in? Beating all the endgame content in as much PP gear as possible while still winning the fights reliably. This reduces time spent in game and keeps me at the top level without having to spend 8 hours a day online that I don't have.
