LoseControl  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.41
by: Kouri [More]
LoseControl makes it easy to see the duration of crowd control spells by displaying them in a dedicated icon onscreen.

Features:
* Displays duration of all CC spells and abilities on your player, pet, target, focus, party, and arena enemy frames.
* Automatically displays the most important buffs/debuffs first.
* Integrates directly with Blizzard unit frames.
* Icons can be moved, resized, and made transparent.
* Compatible with OmniCC.

New in 5.41:
* Added Turn Evil (Evil is a Point of View) [Paladin]

New in 5.4:
* Fixed Entrapment [Hunter]
* Added Bloodbath [Warrior]
* Changed Warbringer to root instead of CC [Warrior]

Known issues:
* Unlocking frames does not show arena enemy frames if they are anchored to Blizzard frames (because they don't exist unless you're in an arena).

To Do:
* Options profiles.
* Button skinning.
* Improve OmniCC support to work with all strata levels.
* Blizzard raid frames support.
* Pitbull support.
* SUF support.
* Italian support.

Here are some demonstration videos:

I just found this addon and considered the idea and intuitive implementation amazing. However, in several battlegrounds now, LoseControl has been showing CC effects on my target rather than myself. I checked its settings and the unit LoseControl is set to is "player". This must be a bug then, I guess. Can you reproduce it?

Ahh I see what the problem is. I will upload a fixed version later today, but I need to fix another issue with Avenger Shield and Skull Bash too.
Line 354 needs to be
Code:
_G.LoseControlDB.version = 4.01

I just noticed something.. For some reason whenever I relog my settings for tracking seems to reset, Immune, Immune to Spells and Root are being toggled off eventhough I set it to be on before relogging.

Any idea of what might cause this? and how I could fix it, it's rather annoying to have to set up the settings everytime I log.

Thanks in advance!

Oh okay, I guess I was using an old version then, thanks for your quick reply!

One thing I noticed missing is that whenever I bubbled on my paladin I used to get an icon from this showing the duration of the bubble, this seems to not work anymore (probably because they changed spellid/duration?), also the same problem on my mage with iceblock, warrior with bladestorm and hunter with beast within, I'm also pretty sure this worked before the latest version in 4.0.1.

I'm pretty sure it hasn't anything to do with my settings, here's a screenshot anyway (normally my icon apears in the middle of the screen):

Other than that the latest version works just great, thanks for the update, I love this addon!

Thank you for the update. This addon is so intuitive, I feel naked PVP'ing without it. Simple and effective.

Awesome, I really like this addon.

Re: an options for buffs?

LC does this already, but right now it's only got a few of the major CC immunity spells in there and they share the icon space with the debuffs. I'll include more spells for the 4.0.1 update and in the future I want to have a checkbox next to each one in the options so you can select which ones you want to see.

I wonder if you could make an option to watch important buffs instead of debuffs? such as ice block, bubble, etc.

like this is how I want my UI:
Lc Debuffs..player...target...Lc buffs
............[][_____] [______][]

the normal LC lets me watch debuffs on me, but I can't find an addon to watch buffs, besides power auras, which I have been using, but when I move my frames it's a PAAAIN to move all the power auras.

The frame strata option never really worked the way it was supposed to. If I have time then I would like to fix it up. Right now though, I just need to concentrate on getting the mod working again.
