focus target report

I would like an addon that tracks and reports the amount of time each raid member shares the target of the main tank.

I want to use it in RBG to measure which dps aren't staying on the target caller's target.

Thanks.

Here is how I picture it working: every 2 seconds the addon scans for target names and keeps a log. For every tick where the target between the MT and the player is shared, 1 point is scored. At the end a simple percentage is calculated for a report.

MT....................Player1(points)....................Player2(points)....................Player3(points)
Shamwow...........NO TARGET(0).....................Shamwow(1)......................Shamwow(1)
Shamwow...........Shamwow(1).......................Shamwow(1)......................Shamwow(1)
Shamwow...........Shamwow(1).......................Discdum(0)........................Shamwow(1)
Shamwow...........Shamwow(1).......................Discdum(0)........................Shamwow(1)
Discdum..............Arrowz(0)...........................Discdum(0)........................Shamwow(0)
Discdum..............Discdum(1).........................Discdum(0)........................Discdum(1)
Discdum..............Discdum(1).........................Lanceles(0)........................Discdum(1)
Discdum..............Discdum(1).........................Lanceles(0)........................Discdum(1)
Discdum..............Discdum(1).........................Lanceles(0)........................Discdum(1)
Rouger................Turdfurg(0)........................Lanceles(0).........................Rouger(1)
Rouger................Turdfurg(0)........................Discdum(0).........................Rouger(1)
Rouger................Turdfurg(0)........................Druidia(0)...........................Rouger(1)
Rouger................Turdfurg(0)........................Druidia(0)...........................Rouger(1)
Rouger................Turdfurg(0)........................Druidia(0)...........................Rouger(1)
Rouger................Turdfurg(0)........................Druidia(0)...........................Rouger(1)
Dogform..............Turdfurg(0)........................Discdum(0).........................Rouger(0)
Dogform..............Turdfurg(0)........................Discdum(0).........................Dogform(1)
Dogform..............Turdfurg(0)........................Discdum(0).........................Dogform(1)
Dogform..............Turdfurg(0)........................Lanceles(0)........................Dogform(1)
Dogform..............Turdfurg(0)........................Lockock(0).........................Dogform(1)
Dogform..............Turdfurg(0)........................Lockock(0).........................Dogform(1)
Dogform..............Turdfurg(0)........................Lockock(0).........................Dogform(1)

TOTAL SHARE POINTS
MT...........................Player1...........................Player2...........................Player3
22................................7.....................................2....................................20........

PERCENT SHARED
MT........................Player1..............................Player2.............................Player3
100.0%.........................32.8%............................9.01%..............................91.0%......



Ok, so we see Player1 starts out ok but starts to drift off target. Player2 is just in all the wrong places. Player3 is right on target every time. We question Player1, we kick Player2 out of the group, and we praise Player3 and make sure to invite him first every time.

Just an observation: Many times, the tank, dps and healers do not share the same targets.

Healers naturally do not have the same target as the tank since they are occupied with healing the group.

DPS will vary in what they need to target depending on the fight.
-In some fights they need to kill adds while the tank(s) hold the main boss.
-In other cases you got casters doing AOE and they might not even have anything targeted.
-In some fights like the Stone Guards in Mogu'shan Vaults you got multiple different bosses that share a health pool, so it does not matter that much what exactly you are targeting (LFR; not so much, Heroic; more important).

What happens if the tank got nothing targeted?


If you make an addon like this, you fall into the danger of simplifying things too much. Much like the way GearScore tried to by condensing everything down to a single number.
