Broken Queue  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v0.7-beta
by: orionshock [More]
Broken Queue is a small addon designed to move the LFD icon from the MiniMap onto an LDB display.

Shows times in queue, what's missing and how long you've been in queue.

Broken_Queue Options
/blfd ShowIdleText => Toggle showing text when not doing something
/blfd ShowTooltipTime => Toggle showing time in queue in tooltip
/blfd NoSeconds => toggle showing seconds everywhere
/blfd default => reset to defaults
/blfd toggleicon => toggle minimap icon
"Commands are not case sensitive"

--Use of the word "Broken" in the addon name has no affect to what this addon does.

**Patch 3.3.3.3.3.3...
Added support for the Random Battleground, now it's called Broken_Queue

A note about LDB and it's clicking.

Left Click for Queue Frame (the DF or BGQueue) and Right Click for the Dropdown Menu you would normally see from the minimap icon.

Option to disable the Not Queued text and LFD Party text? I like my broker addons to just display an icon until they have some info to impart.

Awesome addon, tho.

Well, there is one aspect of the LFD system I actually do find to be broken. That part is the queue times for the 3 roles. Why does blizzard provide the information in it's API, yet not use it in the default UI ?

Either way, I've been waiting for an addon like this since the LFD tool came out.

What would you think about combining some ideas from LFGStatusIcon and Ara Broker XP?

My idea is to use the plugin text area (that currently says "In Queue - Waiting (2 Min 38 Sec)") to display more helpful information -- current group assembly status, a la LFGStatusIcon. That way you don't have to mouse over it to see what you're still missing, and you'll see when you start filling with DPS, indicating that your dungeon is close to popping.

And I think that information would be wonderfully represented by a little block ASCII character, or if that's not localizable, a single pipe as in Ara Broker XP would still be just fine. Just some plain text character, colored to represent classes would be wonderful. Gray for unfilled, blue for tank, green for heals, and red for dps.

Any chance of you implementing this? As an option? If I did it myself and sent a patch file to you for distribution?

Edit: Here's an idea for another completely different way to display the plugin text to be more useful than just your current queue time: Divide the number of seconds you've been in queue by the average number of seconds it takes to queue as the role with the shortest queue time, and display the resulting ratio as a percentage. e.g., My Shaman queues as Heals and DPS. Average DPS queue time is 10 mins, heals is 2 mins. Since I've been in the queue for 30 seconds now, the plugin text will show "25%", and I can see how quickly I progress through the line.

Great Addon. This is probably one of the most wanted things as of late.

As the previous poster stated though, It does not seem to always move the icon from the minimap.

I do not use the defauly minimap so that could be the problem.

Nice addon... There are a few formatting characters in the tooltip, though. (%s) Also, sometimes the minimap icon appears and sometimes it doesn't.
