UPDATE:
this thread capped. new thread here:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7200052820

---
here is a simple macro:
PVPFrameTab1:Click()
local i=1
local b=_G["PVPHonorFrameBgButton"..i] ;
while b do
if b:GetText() == "Warsong Gulch" then
b:Click() ;
print( "joining" ) ;
JoinBattlefield(1,true) ;
return ;
end
i=i+1 ;
b=_G["PVPHonorFrameBgButton"..i] ;
end

this simple code block use to queue my group for warsong (or whatever bg i specified).
now, it's telling me the call is only available to the blizz ui

wth?

how are we supposed to queue groups outside of the wow honor tab?

a blue response would be appreciated by those of us developing addons for YOUR customers

edit:
for completeness, the other function that was re-classified from protected to blizz-only was AcceptBattlefieldPort used when leaving or entering a BG

for example, this line would leave the queue
/script AcceptBattlefieldPort( 1, nil ) ;
this is also broken and needs to be functional again

@ghostcrawler http://tinyurl.com/cte7xal Please respond, you broke oQueue :(

@Skyl3lazer I *think* that was an unforeseen consequence of a change we had to make to prevent an exploit. We'll investigate more.

A reply is needed. NOW. If there is a GOOD reason this code no longer works, I think we deserve to hear it. And if indeed there is a good reason, providing a workaround to coders designing add-ons to improve the interface of the game would be very much appreciated. They make YOUR GAME better than it is, and you need to work WITH them, not against them.

Would really like to find out why this aspect of the code, which was a nice UI feature for so long, has been removed.

I really hope this is unintended. Tiny has made an amazing AddOn and is a great person who has helped out the WoW community (both factions). Now it isn't working.

Please fix this.
Please fix. A whole PVP community is waiting for a response.

As one who makes use of the oQueue add on, I certainly hopes that this gets resolved
