From The Developers of Failbot:"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"EnsidiaFails does appear to generate inaccurate numbers regarding the total number of failures. True you can set options to count the total number of fails per fight but I reset mine per wipe and still see off totals. I am not really sure but I am guessing for example when you standing void zone it counts ticks of dmg so one void zone might equal 4 times due to the dmg ticks? Unsure but the fact remains during the fight it does correctly identify when a fail occurs. On OS25 for example one guy generated an event every time so we started calling out his name and telling him to moving right or left specficly. The event generation is more accurate than the count totals so pay more attention to that.I have had the raid complain about the spam generated and I find using a seperate channel that people can choose to join helps.Bottom line is on things like the clouds on yogg-saron...ensidiafails or any other failbot alternative is not going to help. You have to watch your raiders and have others report behavoir. The shame game sucks but addressing an issue with a person having trouble with an issue is going to make them a better player. We had a player spawning adds in the clouds. Taking him aside and explaining cloud movement and add generation, had the raid going from wiping in the first phase to going through it like butter so it helps!
