Look at wow.
Dmg meter killed it."how many DPS are u running.....WHAT!? Weed need more so GTFO.
No!No Addons please.
Making a blanket statement to not have any addons based on the dislike of a single addon is pretty harsh. There are many mods out there which have been nothing but a benefit to players. Addons like deadly boss mod and outfitter to name two.
Also even the particular addon you dislike has its good points and I find it slightly unfair that bad behaviour by players is allowed to affect a mod so much. I mean there will always be bad behaviour in MMO's so why lose the good points behind the dps meter.
Some bosses in wow require a certain level of acheivment in DPS to kill the boss. A DPS meter can tell you everything you need to know to improve your DPS as it has detailed breakdown charts in all the key areas. Now to confirm I 100% agree that abusing DPS meters is a very bad thing but as this is gonna happen anyway I dont think we should lose the benefits of addons.
As for the OP I beleive that Cryptic has not opened up its game to modders so it is currently impossible to create them without breaking the EULA. I would like to see it opened though as ive already experienced sections of the game that would benefit from addons.
One major one for me would be an outfitter style mod, from wow, it stored a set of armour, spec and action bars allowing you to switch on the fly at the click of a button. In this game it could save a certain set of bridge officers, your skill bars and your gear so you can easily switch from an escort to a cruiser for example.
as a long time wow player i thought it was completely stupid to add such addons that would allow people to read data such as dps, threat etc because it ruined the game. idiots would look at your threat meter if you were a tank and tell the gm of a guild if they wanted you in their raid or not, there was no more comrodery of players in guilds it was all just numbers to these people and nothing more.
now ui mods i like, making things a little more friendly and customizable for the players is an awesome idea. i would love to see that but that should be the limit of what cryptic should allow to be moded on this game lest it become nothing more then a numbers fest.
Your itemscore is to low. You're a noob!
That's the latest thing in WoW. Just heard it from a friend. I actually stopped playing it over a year ago and don't even regret that decision.
totally agree that was a good move to leave since thats all anyone cares about anymore in the game.
