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!

I've yet to try this out (I'm kind of eager to), but realms are down at the moment. Just wondering if it's possible to choose an output channel besides raid. I can see why anyone would want to use /o or custom channel ^^

It doesn't have an options interface, but if you'd like to change it it's not that difficult to do.

Open FailBot.lua in Notepad or another text editor.


Find the following text:
Code:
SendChatMessage(""..destName.." fails.","RAID");
(there are two instances of it)


Replace with:
Code:
SendChatMessage(""..destName.." fails.","CHANNEL",nil,"5");

Where "5" is the channel number of your custom channel. Or if you'd like to send it to officer chat simply replace "RAID" with "OFFICER" -- I prefer the public humiliation method, however.

Getting an error everytime we try Thaddius and someone fails:
Code:
FailBot-1.2\FailBot.lua:74: attempt to index global 'FailBot_LastCharge' (a nil value)
<string>:"*:OnEvent":1: in function <[string "*:OnEvent"]:1>
The fight has been seriously lagging us to bits tho, don't know if it's related.

Hmm k, I'll look into it. 'Shockingly' no one crossed charges when we last did Thaddius so I didn't really get to fully test it.

Would love to see some other events on this. Flame Wreath from Kara, and others for fun. How hard is it to add things?

(I mention FW, because we had a friend along once, and he moved 3 times in 1 wreath >_< irony was we managed to heal through 2 and didn't even realize it at first )

I've changed the addon to report to a custom channel now, but it'd be great if there was either an ingame option for this or just an easier way to do it via the .lua file.

I'm going to test it tonight. Luckily, I often have people failing in my guild.

I'd like to implement that at some point, but that's where my limitations as a coder come into play. I'd have to teach myself how to properly implement something like that, maybe a good weekend project. ;P

Could someone please confirm if the Thaddius jump miss notification is working? Have yet to have someone actually miss it so haven't really been able to test it, to make sure it doesn't spam etc.
