It was literally just a chat filter with a UI. It didn’t have the same functionality as the live Group Finder.

For real? Let people play Classic the way they want to.

Good. While some AddOns that provide quality of life improvements are acceptable, the LFG AddOn definitely treads into territory that violates the philosophies that Classic WoW is built around.

I believe this change was to limit its growth so it doesn’t go out of control. I’m sure suu will update everyone on the api changes.

This is 2019, not 2004. Gamers are a whole new kind of gamer now. You either let them play how they want to play, or they wont play at all. removed

That’s ok we’ll adjust it to suit the changes/rules within the limitations. There will be a LFG addon.

No. This is the authentic classic experience. Therefore the types of addons and the way they change the gameplay must be the same. No LFG. No changes.

I figured this was coming. I agree with their decision. Probably best without it.

I’m not even gonna play Classic, but people do realize this wasn’t ACTUALLY LFG right?r

It was literally just a chat filter. It took any “LF” “LFG” and “LFM” posts, and added them to a UI. That was literally all it did. Instead of having to sort through “WTB” “WTS” and regular chat posts, you could simply look at the UI and see what groups were forming, who was looking, etc.

That’s great, go play retail if you want LFG. Fans of the game will stick around where’s these gamers who already ruined wow will go back to their retail version. removed

Looking for people in the normal chat channels is hard. QQ more.

You know what happens when addons that rely on other people using them start getting used? It becomes a requirement to participate in the game. It was the same for the world quest group finder addon in Legion, where people would press a button and the addon would do all the work for them, and you were at a distinct disadvantage and couldn’t play normally with other players unless you also had that addon. Keep that stuff out of classic please, they even removed that addon from retail because interconnected network addons like these always end up a mandatory download for everyone if they wanna keep up.

Bornakk didn’t say it wouldn’t work, he said they’d “severely limit” what the addon can do. People are celebrating too soon.r

Expect the “fix” to just remove the auto invite feature and leave in everything else. If it scans LFG, which is global, there’s really not much they can do without breaking every addon that interacts with chat, from what I understand.
