I just drooled a bit.
Also known as the Curse Client? I don't really like this, tbh - I'm fine with WoWinterface rolling an addon client but they're trying to make it sound like a new and original idea, which it is not.
Then why should you care if someone creates another client? There were updaters long before wowmatrix, should it not have been created?
My opinion - really excited about that. I have always disliked Curse, even when I didn't know of any alternatives. It has always looked too flashy, too shiny, too...I don't know, almost ugly. The website is heavy and somewhat hard to navigate. Not to mention that it's not part of ZAM, unlike WOWUI.WoWMatrix was a nice program in the beginning, and I admit I still use it once or twice a month, but I update my most important addons manually. I know quite a few addon authors refused to give wowmatrix rights to use their addons, because it didn't give credit, nor did it have option for donation like the Minion will. Not to mention the security questions around it.And, of course, I like WOWUI a great deal - there is some room for improvement, it's not as lightweight as some other sites, like Wowhead, but it's by far the best one I've found. Addons are pretty much up to date (with a few exceptions), community is mature and smart, and something I find very important - addon previews are almost always present (as opposed to Curse, where I feel like a lottery winner if I find a screenshots of an addon).Definitely looking forward to getting this Minion.
I can't wait to ditch the Curse client.I just hope authors opt to upload their stuff to WoWInterface and not just Curse.
<3 Cairenn!Post more often :)
grim works for wowmatrix, ignore him
I'm very happy to see this, although I like(d) curse, the premium restrictions are more than I'm willing to suffer, I'm fine to look at adds, but restricting the processes of the loader itself is too much. Not to mention I'm not willing to drop $30 a year for something that only somewhat assists a game I pay $15 a month for. So it's like adding two additional months so I can get 3 addons to install at a time instead of 1. Not happening.I visit WoWUI all the time to find addons hat often don't appear on Curse, so I see this as a welcome change.
woohooo, cant wait for it!Curse is bad..just...bad... it deleted half my addons! ! >.<good thing i had a backup of wow >_>hope Minion will turn out great, successful and user friendly.
The wait is finally over! Thank you Cairenn, and I will be there beta testing with bells on... 8)
