Hi everybody. Recently we've been on a little timeout from talking about addons because it just seems to be a topic where everyone goes nuts and tries to burn eachother alive, instead of talking in constructive ways. It's time to give it another whirl. Fresh, and revamped, this topic will be kept clean and without insult.
As it stands, we have this quote to go on:
TOR will not feature addons at launch, but the possibility (and probablity) of bringing them in post launch is still there.What we’ve said is, regarding the question ‘Will there be addons at launch’ is “no, not at launch”.
This statement indicates nothing more than that there will not be addons at launch. Nothing more, nothing less.”
There are a few features included for your UI, such as moving your chat boxes where ever you'd like them, as well as creating custom chat boxes. You can also move and size your party/raid frames in a few ways, such as making them bigger for healers. You can also expand your action bar setup so you have 2 at the bottom of your screen, and 1 to the left and right side, for a total of 4.
What's missing? Things such as moving and changing the number of slots on your action bars; moving of your UI pieces (other than raid frames); macros; addons; and probably a few other things I missed.
So, what are your thoughts? If TOR's designed their game to not really need these things, is it still a burden on you? Is the lack of personal customization and addons at launch something that really rubs you the wrong way? Is the exclusion of macros enough to make your gaming experience less enjoyable?
Discuss your thoughts, hopes, and worries. Just stay constructive and be nice to eachother.
