    Help! I logged on this morning and all my teams are questions marks! Thanks for all you do.

    Your pet battle ID's changed (this happens randomly and is outside of my control).

    Try interface --> pet battle teams -> reconstruct teams.
    Its not perfect but it tries its best!

  • #722

    Hi! I seem to be having issues when making a new team. if I setup a pet with 2nd row abilities, when I add them to a team it resets all the abilities to the first row in the team profile. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but it is quite annoying. Any suggestions? I apologize if I'm overlooking something simple.

  • #725

    it sounds like your trying to drag pets from the pet list / pet ability area onto pbt, which will result in what your seeing.

    Click Add new team, (this will copy your current team as it is currently configured)
    Place 3 new pets into the pet window.
    Set their abilities.

    PBT constantly saves your team and choices. Once set up you can right click a team and select lock. if you do that team will no longer save changes you make to the team and will be fixed in time.

    To test that your team is saved, switch to another team then switch back and you'll see that your team is set up correctly.


  • #721

    WoD added "a lot" of master pet trainers.

    I use PetBattle Teams for anything that has either a satchel or other reward. So I have 44 teams (13 for Celestial Tournament + 21 Pandaria + 5 rest Azeroth + 2 Darkmoon + 3 more) and I havent even started in Draenor (6 for masters and 15 for the battles in Garrison)

    So I have a suggestion you could consider impementing. Groups. It's that simple. They could be preset by you (eg per continent) or fully customized. Also another suggestion on the suggestion is to make the groups collapsable so the functionallity of PetBattle Teams remains stellar.

    Hope you consider this. We all thank you!

  • #727

    I'm just c/p'ing this from below

    No. Not because I don't think its a reasonable request but becuase I simply don't have time in my life to do much more then fix the existing high priority bugs. If some one wants to join in helping maintain and add features to PBT then it might be possible.

  • #719

    Am I overlooking something or is there no way to sort the teams (even manually)?

    I have like 50 teams now and I need like 20 seconds to find something specific. Just want to have them sorted by team name. I don't even expect it to be done automatically, just being able to switch around the teams would be nice.

    Other than that - great addon. Thanks for putting so much work into it!

  • #720

    Control drag a team to move it to a new location.

  • #717

    Is there a way to see a list of what teams I have built and saved offline?

  • #718

    Sort of...

    World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<accout name>\SavedVariables\PetBattleTeams.lua

    I store the pet ID, species ID and abilities of each pet on a team and the teams name.
    But its not exactly human readable.

  • #715

    Hey. I've made this request before, but my comment may have been burried. I ran this past fellow collectors and battlers, both in game and on, and others think this would be a good improvement to PBT as well.

    Right now PetBattleTeams has only one tab, and ALL teams go in this tab. To find a team you have to scroll down. And if you have separate teams for every single master in the game, as well as PVP teams, and teams for the Celestial Tournament, etcetera... you can be scrolling for a while to FIND that one team you need.

    What I and others would like is the ability to create ADDITIONAL TABS - 
    to the right of and parallel to the primary tab. This way we could create tabs for different purposes, and name each tab accordingly, then below each tab we could create teams.

    This way we could have a tab named "North Tamers." And below that we could have [all] our Northrend teams to beat all the Northrend tamers.

    A separate tab could be called "Pandaria Tamers." And in that tab we could have teams for each Pandaria tamer.

    We could have another tab for Celestial Tournament, which would carry our primary teams and our secondary trournament teams.

    Another tab could be [all] our PVP teams.

    And yet another tab could be WoD teams.

    It would be a lot simpler and easier to go to the "tab" for each category, then find the team you want this way. There could be a scroll-bar to scroll through the tabs, the same way we have a scroll-bar now to scroll down through the teams in a single bar.

    I hope I'm explaining this in a way that is understood. Is there a chance we could see a change like this soon?

  • #716

    No. Not because I don't think its a reasonable request but becuase I simply don't have time in my life to do much more then fix the existing high priority bugs. If some one wants to join in helping maintain and add features to PBT then it might be possible. 


  • #711

    I recently redid all my addons and I forgot which pets ones I had.  Does this addon have a feature where you can save a team for a particular boss and it automatically recalls it when you fight that boss again?

  • #712

    No, but Auto Safari Hat uses PetBattle Teams to provide that feature if the team has the same name as the tamer. 

  • #710

    I have 2 accounts and would like to use the same teams on both. Is there a way to share data between them?
