Well done OP.
Yeah Blizzard! Remove the add-on effects from your game so I can go back to using my add-ons! [sarcasm!]
Seriously, some people complain about anything and add-on type effects built into the game has always been the dumbest.
- Quest tracking
- Floating Combat Text
- Dungeon/Raid Journal
Each of those things (and that's not all of them) slowly added to the game because they were just becoming commonly used by the community anyway and each of them equally whined about.
My LoseControl add-on never caused my entire action bar to turn red and hide the cooldowns of my abilities during CCs, even while turned off, which is the part of this new functionality most people are upset about. Try reading the whole thread before trying to look smart. kthnxIn short, day 1 patch, people with outdated add-ons (yours last being updated the 2nd) using said outdated add-ons are experiencing problems. Not totally sure how Blizzard is at fault for your own actions, maybe wait for the add-on to get updated or disable it?

YOU CAN DISABLE IT
FFS, stop the stupid complaining.
11/27/2012 07:27 PMPosted by FibromyalgíaWe've added quite a lot of functionality over time that duplicates the effects of useful or popular addons. Naturally, there will be players that prefer the control or customization that those addons offer, but it doesn't hurt to provide a similar option in the default UI.
I applaud that Blizzard does this, but I do have one question (which you may or may not be allowed to answer):
When you implement functionality that duplicates a popular addon (QuestHelper in particular comes to mind), how do you reconcile this with the addon author(s)? Do you (have to) give them any credit/compensation, or is there something in the fine print of making addons that says "Blizzard owns your addon"?

I'll certainly make sure that feedback is passed on.
