ClassicLFG addon

Apparently there is an addon called ClassicLFG that assists with forming dungeon groups. I don’t really feel as though this addon is an issue but would like other opinions on it.

discuss.

I would like some real opinions on it, the large thread has broken down into attacks on players I would rather not read.

What is your opinion of the addon, how about Questie and Azeroth Auto Pilot?

the add on is fine, realistically blizzard needs to just remove all add ons, period.

Huh, this is the first I have heard about an LFG addon.

Thanks for the heads up!

No problem, just heard a little about it myself today. I’m still trying to gather legitimate information on it but all I see are opinion pieces, misinformation and personal attacks.

We’ve been closely following the community discussion around this add-on for WoW Classic, as well as analyzing it to make sure we understand how it works. After careful examination, we believe the nature of ClassicLFG is incompatible with our social design for Classic. Thus, in an upcoming patch (in the weeks following launch), we will be adding restrictions to the Classic add-on API that will significantly limit this add-on and others like it.

In line with what we shared at BlizzCon last year, we intend to be very careful about allowing add-on functionality that might undermine aspects of the social dynamics that are core to the Classic experience, even in cases like this where it’s clear that the addon author had no ill intent and was simply trying to provide a service to the Classic community. Ultimately, if a streamlined group-finding system was something we considered compatible with Classic, we would have kept the modern Premade Group Finder tool rather than choosing to remove it from the Classic client.

It’s difficult to articulate a clear-cut rule for exactly when an add-on crosses the line. However, when an add-on goes beyond presenting information or providing aesthetic customization, and attempts to create an interconnected social network that relies on other players also using that same add-on, we are likely to scrutinize it particularly closely.

Thank you so much. The unique social aspects that are part of Classic will be what differentiates it from modern WoW.

It’s the players that are important in Classic.

Thank you.

Let’s all just be happy they are keeping the integrity of Classic and not call out those who opposed us. Makes me so happy.
