Apr 18th 2011 4:08PM I'm in the same boat as Basil. I used Auctioneer for years, and I really wish I had known about Auctionator earlier. Auctioneer is unwieldy and slow (eg. the AH scan does not use the API call that downloads the entire AH listing, but rather scans each page individually), as well as incredibly complex/lengthy to setup and configure.
To top it all off, it doesn't do basic things properly (if I just want to undercut the current lowest auction by a set amount, I need the standard deviation module, which sometimes bugs out because it doesn't have enough data, etc.).
Quitting WoW and coming back a year later, only to spend another 2 days configuring Auctioneer, was a complete nightmare.
Then I heard about Auctionator. It took 5 minutes to setup, and did everything I needed perfectly, without bugs, much faster, much more easily, and just plain BETTER than Auctioneer, with only minimal configuration.
I don't know how any software developer can have such a poor grasp on usability design.
Mar 24th 2011 2:36PM Obviously, there is, since that's what happens to me and other people I play with, both in raids and in PuG dungeons. If you repeatedly post a "fix" and your readers keep bringing up the same problem, clearly the logical hypothesis is there might be something else afoot, not that everyone is doing it wrong. Especially coming from someone who blogs about making a macro containing [aspect:1], which has never been a valid macro conditional. I'm a software engineer by trade and have been using those options/macros since long before Frost started blogging about them. I'm telling you, that's not sufficient.

Mar 24th 2011 1:24PM Frost, your comments regarding the auto-shot bug have been inaccurate. The reason your solution does not work is even if you deselect your target completely, the game keeps trying to cast auto-shot until you select a new target. So you could be running around for a minute with no target, then as soon as you select a new target, auto-shot goes off. I have this happen to me all the time and it has nothing to do with spamming shots and immediately selecting the next target when you first one dies.

Feb 24th 2011 1:25PM From what I can tell, Tom who asked the first question was the bad in the group he described, slow to pull, slow to play, slow to think, not telling the group that he needs a second, unable to hold aggro, calling people idiots for not giving him 2 minutes between pulls, and generally acting like a prima donna and leaving with tears streaming down his cheeks.
Feb 17th 2011 12:43PM Bashiok or Zarhym specifically stated one-man guilds and bank alt guilds were not who they created the guild leveling system for. This was in response to someone complaining that their bank alt guild couldn't level up.
Feb 15th 2011 1:05PM You wayyyyyy overstated the importance of gear in heroics. My friend healed us in PvP gear/spec all the time and we had no problem with our fresh 85 bear tank.
