LFG is an LFG AddOn to replace the entire blizzard's LFG UI. (LOL. I know it sounds like a joke but it is actually an LFG addon and that is why i named it as LFG.)

 

 

LFG is conflicting with blizzard's premade groups, so I decide to shut the premade groups UI down. If you want to use premade groups and disable LFG, install LFG BPGUF AddOn.

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 fully customization.

 

A lot of different types of addons are doing exactly the same thing. For example, Cross Realm Assist was an 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 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 addons for doing the 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.

  

 

 

LFG fights spamming not only against spammers but addons as well. These freaking addons spamming was exactly why blizzard restricted APIs. Stop using your fucking addons which keep spamming in chat. YOU ARE WORSE THAN SPAMMERS.

 

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.

 

 

LFG BFA beta:

Input the number into the EditBox to create an auto group. You don't need to do this if you just search or sign up a group.

Update:

You can now create group with your hint towards other players following quest id to the title bar. That would tell both addons and human beings to know what quest it is.

Just disable subaddon in your addon list if you don't want certain feature of LFG. For example, you don't want to use LFG for 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.

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 much resources on UI unlike a lot of premade group addons 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 any more.
