Reads combat log, displays who’s nearby. Was in vanilla, but not as good nor as prominent.
The honour system benefits degenerate behaviour, so people grinding honour purposefully do degenerate PvP to min/max the honour gained, ergo ganking (unfair PvP advantage) pretty much every time all the time, and avoiding ganks such as a 5 man avoiding a 6 man group and ganking a 4 man group etc.
WHAT THIS HAS TO DO WITH SPY:
This degenerate behaviour is further re-inforced by an addon that locates every vulnerable, or threatening enemy player in the vicinity. However, its accuracy is unbelievable to the point that despite it claiming it ‘reads the combat log’, is capable of scanning people on flight paths or who are purposefully avoiding the combat log.
One more thing I’d like to add is that the combat log visible in-game details your interaction in combat, however I am starting to suspect the Spy addon actually steals information from the shared data in other addons like threat metres and Details to maintain more accuracy, because of its ability to scan seems unnaturally accurate, at least from the visible interface.
In summary I finish with 2 questions to open debate.
Should this degenerate addon continue to be allowed to exist?
and is it stealing data from other “essential” addons without informing the populace?
