New WQ mode of LFG AddOn (This new mode is designed to anti-hop and no-spamming. It is nearly impossible to hop our WQ groups)

 

LFG is an LFG AddOn to replace the entire blizzard's LFG UI.

 

It is designed to write by coroutines instead of events.

Why should I use LFG AddOn?

 

Just like why people are using 3rd-party raid frame addons like healbots, grid, grid2 etc because Blizzard's UI is basically lack of customization. A lot of things just can't be done within the framework of premade groups. You have to replace the entire Blizzard's UI with your own one if you want full customization.

 

A lot of different types of addons are doing exactly the same thing. For example, Cross Realm Assist was a cross-realm addon but in fact, it is an LFG addon with its own UI. Serverhop and WQGF were doing exactly the same thing from the program logic perspective. Even Badboy as a chat filter addon would filter LFG spamming. The idea behind BlockChinese could actually be used for premade groups as well. There is no point for people to install so many different add-ons for doing exactly the same thing. These features should share the same code base and work together.

 

Premade filter's dead and Chinese Netease Meeting Stone AddOn's spamming with disgusting titles and descriptions in LFG were why I started this project. I don't like these disgusting titles. I believe this is also why blizzard restricts C_LFGList APIs further in BFA, not because of the idea of WQGF.

  

DO NOT DISABLE LFG HOOK AND LFG EVENT ADDONS IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HOOKS AND EVENTS IN WOW ARE. DON'T DISABLE LFG AUTO TOO. These three addons should NOT be disabled.

HOW TO USE LFG TO CREATE A GROUP?

 

Random Hop

 

 

Remove other AddOns noises


Spam Filter

Invasion Point

 

Just disable sub add-on in your addon list if you don't want the certain feature of LFG. For example, you don't want to use LFG for the quest, just disable LookingForGroup Quest AddOn in your AddOn list. 

 

Do not worry about resource usage of this AddOn. The sub addons are all "Load On Demand" which means they wont load unless the features being used.

 

 

Use LFG to leave an instance quickly for soloing old tier of the raid:

Use LFG to queue LFD/LFR

 

LookingForGroup Cross Realm Enhancement Extension AddOn

 

 

 

Common Q/A:

 

1. How to disable LFG minimap icon? Just disable LFG Icon addon in your addon list.

 

 

 

2. How to disable quest popping up automatically?

Or just leave quest range and LFG will close the pop-up.

 

3. Where is my title bar in the premade groups UI?

Since BFA, we have to break blizzard's UI to make this be functional.

 

Well. LFG is designed to replace blizzard's premade groups entirely just like custom raid frame addons (like grid, grid2, healbot) did towards blizzard's compact raid addon. We can actually do little customization towards Blizzard's UI unless we write our own "UI". Instead, just use LFG to create/search groups instead of Blizzard's UI since it sucks.

 

LFG does not have a "working" UI. The entire UI is all based on AceConfigdialog-3.0 with some dialogControl widgets. It won't cost many resources on UI unlike a lot of premade group add-ons do.

 

 

Thank YOU BLIZZARD FOR BREAKING SPAMMING FILTER ADDONS IN LFG LOL. What a joke

You can't filter spamming based on title and description anymore.
