About PlayerScore

PlayerScore Overview
PlayerScore is the next evolution of GearScore® and aims at providing a utility infinitely more useful then just the score of a player's equipment. PlayerScore provides raid leaders with a wealth of instant knowledge such as

  • Complete Raiding History - Allows you to view an easy to read breakdown of a player's raiding history including every boss kill and current top-tier raiding progression.
  • Equipment Layout - Well designed layout allows you to manually check a player's gear quickly and easily. Advanced item tooltips make spotting bad items even easier with flags for enchantments, gems, and reforging.
  • Primary Stats - Shows you a break down of the stats a player is gearing for. This provides a great way for raid leaders to make sure player's aren't stacking spell pen, or have 200% hit rating, or DKs gearing for Agility.
  • Talent Spec - View a player's current build. You can also flag talents as bad for a specific spec and have PlayerScore notify you in the future when a player is using those talents.
  • Automatic Character Auditing - PlayerScore will display a list of flags for when players have missing or bad gems & enchantments; bad talent specs; missing equipment; wearing equipment for another spec or class; using pvp items; or riding TRH.
  • Player Ratings - PlayerScore uses our online servers and custom anti-abuse technology to allow players to rate eachother on a thumbs up or down basis. This allows you to easily spot players who don't get along well with others or just plain suck.

PlayerScore also provides a set of very extensive options. Almost every single feature can be disabled to save memory or increase performance. You can also disable features to save space and only provide the information you care about most. You can also run the addon in "Lite Mode" which will disable the entire GUI showing only information on player tooltips.

* Character Claiming for
* Quick Rate Mode! In previous versions of the addon, it would become difficult to rate players at the end of a dungeon because they would quickly leave the party.

The new Quick Rate Mode attempts to remedy this by displaying a small window whenever the user exits a 5-man dungeon. There is now an option in the options menu that can disable this feature. You can also type "/psrate" at any time to open the window and rate party members. Due to previous limits within addon, only players who have been scanned by the addon at some point since the last login will appear in the quick rate frame. Finally, all players who join your party at some point during the instance will be listed in the Quick Rate Frame. This means players who join and are then vote-kicked or abandon the instance will appear for you to rate.

    This would prevent you from using the PlayerScore GUI to inspect them further or to view more detailed information. Currently however,
    The system has been modified to queue that inspection when it becomes available. This should allow you to use the PlayerScore GUI even
    when Quick-Scan mode is enabled.

    SLOW response when PlayerScore is running
    Quote from ttroxor»

    every change of equip - wow freeze.  not funktional.

    Same problem.  I go to check my equipment, and after the second or third item, it's soooo slow that I can't do anything for several seconds at a time.

  • #910

    im running win7 64bit prenium, atm im havin the lag issues to. runnin wow64bit

  • #909

    To everyone having lag/lua error spam issues, What OS are you running, and do you know if you're running wow 32 or 64bit?

  • #916

    Yup, I think you got the point. My system is 64bit and so is my WOW. Hopefully this lagging bug can be fixed ASAP. I am looking foward to use PlayerScore again.

    I was also having the SEVERE lag issue whenever I opened my character screen.  The lag seemed to be triggered or exacerbated by DE'ing or reforging something (or maybe just swapping gear), and then the lag would get progressively worse each time I swapped a piece of gear in or out, until it got to the point where even opening my character screen would freeze the game for 30-45 seconds.  Ouch.  After updating a few other mods that I thought could be the problem, I found my way here and realized it was PlayerScore that was the culprit.  I went ahead and updated from 5.0.00 to 5.0.01 and I think the character lag issue (memory leak?) might be fixed.  But I haven't really swapped any gear in or out yet so I'm not sure.  But 5.0.01 seems to be working, unlike for Coasty a couple of posts before me.

    HOWEVER, in both 5.0.00 and 5.0.01 I'm having another issue.  When PlayerScore is enabled, I'm seeing a big solid black box right on top of my Defensive stats that's like 5 lines of text from top to bottom, so I can't really see what those stats are at all.  Is anyone else having that problem?  My main's a Mage, so it's not a huge problem right now.  But it's still annoying and I'm not 100% sure the lag issue is resolved.  So for now, especially since I'm swapping out gear frequently at this stage of MOP, I just disabled PlayerScore until these problems are fixed.

  • #1129

    I'm still having issues with this annoying black window covering my Defense panel and as I'm now tanking on my druid I'm going to have to remove this addon as it's gotten very annoying.

  • #907

    Can we get an update on your progress???

  • #906

    Heh... This version chokes before it even gets started...  It never gets past trying to download the stats from the plugin web site.

    Which leads to an obvious question....  Did anybody even check to see if it worked before releasing it???

  • #905

    Uninstalled the addon. As others here I get horrible lag when opening the character screen. I like the addon but cannot use it as it is.


  • #903

    Brunoldo seems to have hit it right on the head.  I didn't check with mousing over players, but my bank alts have problems with lagging when mousing over inventory and the AH, and EXTREME lag when going through the mail if you let the cursor sit there on an item.  It's so bad that it's a crapshoot whether you get the item out or not.

  • #902

    seemed to work ok when I first installed it, but now whenever I open my character screen, with stats showing, by whole game freezes up, almost completely. When I open the character screen with the stats hidden, it doesnt do this, and when I have Player score disabled, it doesn't do this. So. my-think the culprit is Playerscore.

    Tried on multiple different computers, with the most up-to-date versions, with same results.

  • #904

    It's definetly playerscore, does the same thing for me, when i open my charecter screen up it freeze the game for up to 30 seconds, but when playerscore is disabled, this doesnt happen.

  • #901

    Whenever I open Playerscore even just to look at my own stats it just sits there blank and does nothing. It does increase the lag alot but in terms of this working it does nothing. The windows comes up to give you the comments about in your underwear for 2 min but even after 10 mins nothing loads up. Any ideas?

    Yes current version installed.

  • #900

    I'm also getting horrible lag with this mod. Also, there are no helmet enchants anymore so it would be nice if you could remove that.
