After about the sixth time in a one hour play session in classic having a random guild invite pop up trying to direct me to a website to buy gold, I began to grow really angry at this continued serial guild invite system being allowed to exist.
However, in the interest of the social health of classic and after much deliberation I decided to make this post and bring my opinion on the matter to the attention of the community in hopes to grow support to get this addon broken. I have believed this addon should be broken for a long time as it is a natural perversion of the community that are guilds are supposed to be both in retail and classic, but even more so in classic.
Firstly, lets get the big obvious out of the way. Third party services are abusing this addons existence to advertise and harass players regardless of zone. Which is far more detrimental to health of the economy than dying and leaving skeletons to spell out an advertisement on the bridge in storm-wind ever could be. I do believe blizzard has done a good job at curtailing this over the past couple weeks as the invites have started to happen less and less, but none-the-less it still continues to happen.
Next, lets talk a little bit of history. This type of addon came to prominence in cataclysm with the guild leveling system where goblins would install this addon in the hopes of turning a profit on level 25 guilds either hoping to turn a profit on new hopeful raiding guilds or gaining some form of residual income from the Cashflow perk available at level This is important to remember as this type of addon sparsely existed before the guild leveling system, and only came to wide use because of the guild leveling system.
However, even after the guild leveling system had been retired the addon stuck around and this forms the core of my argument that it is a perversion of a guild, not a guild. You see, I was one of the people that profited off of these addons in Cataclysm, downloading the addon, running it while I was playing, forcing people into unpaid slave positions to earn gold.
The once the guild was 25, sold it to a new raid guild hopeful that typically would remove the majority of the members the guild obtained. This cuts core to the classic experience is what should a guild be, essentially a non-zone specific world chat.
Or a group of people with a shared common interest that typically have some prior relationship. In my opinion the latter. Moreover, players should not have to go out of their way to enable and disable a setting because other people are contacting them without any prior social engagement against their will.
They said they would step in and break addons that circumvent the social experience of classic. I addressed that criticism of my own point. Just because a block guild invite feature exist does not give you the right to abuse guild invitations. To quote CM Vrakthis.
One way to look at it, is it is still LFG just Looking for guild. Guild should be formed by social interaction and social experiences. Not a random bockstandard completely random invite. Much as though I read your comment about the option to disable guild invites…seriously, how is this not the FIRST thing you do when you make and configure a toon?? Sorry dude, this is just a horrible troll thread or whinepost about broken addons.
That the mature language filter exists does not excuse the use of inappropriate language or subject matter.Want to play a meme spec?
Other players will now know, decreasing the likelihood of you getting invited. Please add your voice in multiple venues to get Blizzard to investigate and hopefully ban this addon.
I really dont see a problem with this addon. Beats spamming trade chat for ppl who arent in guilds. Funny how it actually has the exact functionality and the addon developer admitted to this and is now desperately trying to save his project by reverting a bunch of these things. But regardless my point stands. For those saying there is a different version for Classic and retail…they were lying. Developer even admitted to it. It does spam trade chat. Did you watch the video?
It spams all chats and when people reply the word invite its invites them. So this is how it breaks immersion. Instead of you interacting with people in the chats and picking your group, you can walk away and let the addon do it. Totally game breaking!!! Yeah i know it does. Im looking to burn thru ll 60 as fast as i can coz ive done it in vanilla but too late unfortunately before TBC came out so lvl 60 gameplay is all i care about really.
Great addon and very intuitive. The more you guys post about it the more I learn and the more excited I get to be able to use such a great player created feature. Well done creator. Delete out the lines for auto-invite, and reinforce its usage of chat channels to communicate.
As for talent allocation inspection, sucks to suck. You are playing in a group and it is selfish to withhold such information from others on how effectively you are able to perform. It works the same way in classic as it does in BFA. Here he comes to save the day, the LFR Forum heroooooooo. Imagine only doing lfr and wanting a dungeon finder addon. WoW Classic.

Auto Invite to raid Addon Hello I was wondering if there is a good addon that can auto invite to raid.
It would be nice to automate this and have an addon auto invite them via keywords in general or if they whisper me. Also I would like to have a macro to use for inviting people to my group. It would be a macro to say in general chat "Looking for more PST for invite". Also with this macro I would like it to report the number of people currently in the raid group as well. The message could end up looking like this "Looking for more PST for invite. Old Computer New Computer.

I hope they remove that functionality from the API. It literally serves no purpose other than spam guild invites to strangers. The reason it existed was because of the cash flow gbank perk in cata meaning the guild master got more gold the more random idiots were in his guild. Super guilds where around in Vanilla, but died off or just turned into another type of guild.
But unsolicited guild invites did exist. No idea if there were addons back then, or just macros to send the whisper. Decline the invite and report for spam. I hope not but either way, Retail has a checkbox in the options menu to turn off receipt of guild invites, so they could easily include this in Classic if that were a concern.
I doubt that most long term players would join such a guild, though. Game design in Retail unfortunately supports this type of guild which is why they exists there. Auto guild invites? WoW Classic. WoW Classic General Discussion.
