FailBot  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.12
by: Veev [More]
*****************************************************************************
I have recently quit raiding and will soon be quitting WoW altogether, so I will no longer be able to maintain and update this project. I suggest checking out EnsidiaFails for a proper replacement:
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/ensidiafails.aspx
*****************************************************************************

Add some public humiliation to your raid! FailBot reports in raid chat (or another channel of your choosing) whenever a raid member "fails." These fails are only things that are preventable by the individual on a consistent basis, so if someone's name pops up it was irrefutably their fault, which makes it a great way to see who in the raid needs to improve without having to personally call them out.

/failbot or /fb in game to configure.

Fails include:

(Naxxramas)
Hit by an eruption on Heigan
Dying to slimes after Patchwerk
Missing the jump on Thaddius
Crossing 3 or more opposite charges on Thaddius
Hit by a frost breath on Sapphiron
Hit by a void zone on Kel'Thuzad

(Sartharion & Drakes)
Hit by a void zone on any of Sartharion's drakes
Hit by a lava wave on Sartharion

(Ulduar)
Hit by Devouring Flame on Razorscale
Spell school interrupted by Ignis the Furnace Master's Flame Jets (Note: Sometimes the game will generate a combat event for someone's spell school being interrupted when they just barely avoided it)
Letting XT-002 Deconstructor's Light Bomb get 3 or more damaging ticks off on nearby players
Letting XT-002 Deconstructor's Gravity Bomb detonation hit 2 or more players
Hit by Stormcaller Brundir's Overload on Iron Council
Hit by Kologarn's eyebeams
Hit by the void zone that Auriaya's Feral Defender leaves behind when it dies
Hit by Flash Freeze on Hodir
Hit by Runic Smash on Thorim's gauntlet run (hallway shockwave effect)
Hit by Lightning Charge on Thorim
Dispelling Bind Life buff on Freya's trash
Spell school interrupted by Elder Stonebark's or Freya's Ground Tremor (Note: Sometimes the game will generate a combat event for someone's spell school being interrupted when they just barely avoided it)
Hit by an exploding Sapper on Mimiron's trash
Hit by Rocket Strike, Laser Barrage, Shock Blast, Bomb Bots, or a Proximity Mine on Mimiron (Note: Bomb Bots are not always a failure depending on your group's strategy, you may disable it from the options menu)
Hit by ground flames on hard mode Mimiron
Hit by Shadow Crash on General Vezax or his Faceless Horror trash
Receiving too many stacks of General Vezax's Saronite Vapors
Hit by Death Ray (green beam) on phase 2 of Yogg-Saron

TO DO:
Add a command to report overall fails to chat channel.
Figure out a way to report when someone receives 3 stacks of Hodir's Biting Cold. (Need a more experienced coder to assist me in adding this, please contact me by leaving a comment here if you can help - I usually overlook PMs.)
A raid member (in same zone) NOT getting hit by Auriaya's Sonic Screech. (Again need assistance here.)
When people fail at the various Flame Leviathan hard mode obstacles, unsure if there's a way to determine which player owns the vehicle hit by spells. (Again need assistance here.)

CAN NOT DO:
Report who walks into a cloud on Yogg-Saron, the game does not generate a combat event for clouds except when an add actually spawns.
v2.12 (April 30th, 2009)
Fixed nasty error (sorry!)
Added fail for receiving too many stacks of General Vezax's Saronite Vapors



v2.11 (April 29th, 2009)
Added hard mode Mimiron flames
Added ground tremor on Freya and her guardian
Added spam protection for runic smash on Thorim
Fixed bomb bots to only display in Mimiron's room
Also added option to not announce bomb bot fails
Added option to reset counter upon entering combat
Added void zone from when you kill Auriaya's guardian add
Added devouring flame fire on Razorscale
Added message if someone's light bomb ticks on any player for 3 or more times (untested, hope it works)
Added message if someone's gravity bomb hits 2 or more players (untested, hope it works)



v2.1 (April 19th, 2009)
Added additional fails for Ulduar, see main description page for list.
Fixed flash freeze/snow mound reports going off on Yogg-Saron.
Fixed spam on Mimiron's laser barrage.
Fixed proximity mine report on Mimiron.



v2.0 (April 2nd, 2009)
Now adds a counter to the end of every fail message showing how many times that person has failed.
Slash command /failbot added.
Early support added for Ulduar (only the bosses that have been available on the US PTR).



v1.4 (December 27th, 2008)
Fixed Thaddius jump announcement.



v1.3 (December 9th, 2008)
Hopefully fixed possible error on Thaddius.



v1.2 (December 4th, 2008)
Added notification for when people miss the Thaddius jump, not tested but should work.



v1.1 (December 4th, 2008)
Fixed to report on Sartharion's actual lava waves and not the small meteors. (Oops!)
Added spam prevention checks for lava waves and polarity charges.
Will now also say what the player failed to!

A very basic counter has been added to the new version but I'm waiting to finish updating it for Ulduar to release it. Will simply display as: Veev fails at void zones (3) -- 3 being the amount of fails since addon last loaded

Probably won't be adding old content but I plan to continue updating it for Ulduar and beyond.

Any plans for adding old content to this as well?
I love the idea of adding in the instances/heroics to this,
If so I will defiantly add this to my officers addon list.
This addon's idea is great, not only will it help make the raid leader not seem like such a d*&k pointing out mistakes (since its an addon, you cant argue "I saw you" "no you didn't" "It wasn't me it was the guy next to me" etc, and no more arguments of "you just don't like me so your picking on me")
As well as help GLeaders and RLeaders see who their sharpest members are.

Cool stuff. Gratz!

First of all, great addon!

Would it be possible to let us be able to have a costum channel as a target?
Would be great, thanks.

Edit, nvm didn't read well enough ;]

Custom Fails

This is great, and would also be good while gearing up people in heroic dungeons. Do you have any plans to allow others to add fails to the lists, or would this be something else we would have to look to FailBotEnhanced for?

The first person to be targeted by the boss when combat is initiated will be the tank, since he doesn't target until he is on the ground. You could maybe make it store that name.

for combat related fails that is, e.g. void zone sartharion drakes, that flame wall thingie or heigan lava eruption hits - those things wont kill you at all.
yes they do, at least when you have the debuffs from the three drakes, less hp than a tank and no outs like frostblock, cloak oder bubble

I like the way it works very much; I have it report to another channel in a different colour, and I think itīs rather helpful in giving me an impression about how the fight is going. Why donīt you set it to another channel in a different chatwindow, if you want to have a summary after the fight?

Hey,

can you try to make this addon less spammy?

perhaps an option to toggle recording from +combat to -combat and then
print some summary afterwards...

for combat related fails that is, e.g. void zone sartharion drakes, that flame wall thingie or heigan lava eruption hits - those things wont kill you at all.

just report "void zone fails:\n smb: 5\n otherGuy: 100" then

it's fine for no-combat or single-time events, e.g. naxx froggers or thaddius jumps.

oh and another good one would be "died from malygos breath"
