About Rematch

Rematch is a pet journal alternative to help manage battle pet teams and pets.

Its primary purpose is to store and recall battle pet teams for targets. For instance:

- When you target Aki the Chosen, bring up the Rematch window and hit Save, you can save in her name the pets you have out.
- When you return to Aki another day, you can target her, bring up the window and it will offer you those saved pets to load.

New in 3.1.0

  • New team notes system.
  • The "direction" of popup dialogs reworked when the window is collapsed.
  • Removed MoP-specific code.
  • Optimization of scrollable lists.
  • New option: List Real Names to list pets by their real name in the browser even if they've been renamed.
  • The "Fill Queue" leveling queue option will no longer add leveling pets if you have a level 25 version of the pet.
  • A new "Fill Queue More" leveling queue menu option will add leveling pets even if you have a level 25 version of the pet.
  • On the "pet card"/tooltip, when the mouse is over any part of the title area (instead of one of its icons) it will flip the card to the back.
  • On the pet card, if you have any level 25 versions of the pet you're looking at, the color of the pennant behind the level will be gold.
  • When a dialog appears, all but the current pets area will darken slightly and become uninteractive to prevent weird interactions with dialogs.
  • Mouseover of pet totals at bottom of the browser will display more totals: number of pets you own, number of pets you're missing, unique pets you own and level 25 pets.
  • When saving a team, if you change the name from the one provided, the team will save with no npc ID.

How to Use

You can summon the Rematch window several ways:

  • Set a key binding from options.
  • /rematch command.
  • The Rematch button at the bottom of the pet journal.
  • 'Use Minimap Button' in options will create a minimap button.
  • From its LDB button if you use a Broker infobar addon.
  • Have 'Auto Show' checked in options and target something for which you have a saved team that's not already loaded.

Saving a Team

As mentioned at the top, this addon's primary purpose is to save for targets. Target an NPC, click Save, and you will be prompted to save in their name.

If you choose to keep the target's name for the team, then you'll be offered that team to load when you return to it another day. Within options you can choose to make Rematch automatically pop up when you return to that target, or you can make the team load immediately without messing around with the addon at all.

When a team is saved with an NPC targeted, or when saving over an existing team that was initially created at the target, the team's name will be white and it will react only to that specific instance of the NPC.

If you manually name a team named after an NPC without it targeted, or you got the team from elsewhere without targeting information saved, its name will be gold and it will react to any copies of that NPC you run across in the world.

You're also free to save without regard for target. Name your team anything you want and you can return to the teams tab later to load it back from the Teams tab.

Teams

When teams are saved, they're stored in the Teams tab.

  • To load a team manually, double click it.
  • You can create up to 7 additional tabs in addition to the default General team tab.
  • When a team is saved, it will go to the current tab. You can change the current tab while saving at the bottom of the save dialog.
  • All team names are unique, even across tabs. If you have "Aki the Chosen" in a tab named "Dailies", and you save "Aki the Chosen" in General, it will move that team to General and save it there. (But don't worry, if the teams are sufficiently different, it will ask for confirmation first).
  • Right-click a tab to change its name or icon, delete it (or re-order tabs if you've created more than one).
  • When a tab is deleted, all teams within the tab are moved to the General tab.
  • You can right-click a team to do various things as well, such as renaming, deleting or sharing it.
  • You can bind a key to open the Teams tab directly.

Pets

The Pets tab contains a pet browser and a leveling queue.

Just about anyplace you see a pet, you can double-click it to summon the pet, or dismiss it if it was already out.

The "tooltip" for pets is a pet card with stats:

  • Hold Alt to flip the card over for more about your pet.
  • Click the pet to lock the card in place so you can mouseover abilities.
  • When the card is locked it has a wooden frame around it. You can unlock it several ways: clicking one of the little screws in a corner, clicking the pet again from where you locked it, hitting ESCape or any other major interaction with the addon.
  • You can shift+click pets and abilities to chat.

Some advantages the built-in pet browser has over the default pet journal:

  • You can search the names of abilities or text within abilities.
  • You can search for level and stat ranges.
  • In addition to filtering pets by type, you can filter by 'Strong vs': if you filter Strong vs Dragonkin, it will list all pets with Magic attacks.
  • You can also filter to pets that are Tough vs a type of attack: filtering Tough vs Elemental will list all critters.
  • A 'Type Bar' to filter by the various types without going through the dropdown menus.
  • A counter at the bottom of the browser tells you how many pets are listed: search level=25 and you'll see how many level 25 pets you own.

To clear filters, you can click the little X button in the search box or the type bar, or you can click the X along the bottom when filters are applied. You can also click 'Reset All' within the filters menu.

Searches

In the search bar of the pet browser, you can not only search for names of pets and their source, but you can also search for:

  • Names of abilities ("Call Lightning")
  • Text within abilities ("Bleed")
  • Level ranges ("level=25" or "level>10" or "level=8-13")
  • Stat ranges ("health>700" or "speed=250-350" or "power>=276")

Also:

  • Searches are not case sensitive. "Bleed" will work just as well as "bleed" or "BLEED".
  • You can hit "Fill" on the leveling queue to add one of each species from your search results to the leveling queue.
  • When you look at the pet card, abilities that contain the search text will be marked with a gold ring.
  • You can also search levels, stats and text simultaneously:
    "bleed health>700 level<25" : Pets with Bleed in text that have over 700hp and are under 25.
    "level<25 bleed health>700" : Same thing. The order of search isn't important.
    "health>700 <25 bleed" : Same again. If a stat doesn't appear with a < > or =, it assumes level.

Leveling Pets

Thanks to suggestions from Behub, Aloek and others, Rematch has a robust system to make leveling pets easy.

In the Pets tab there is a leveling slot with a shiny gold border. You can drag a pet here to mark it as your leveling pet. (You can also right-click a pet elsewhere like in the journal and choose 'Start Leveling')

  • Any teams saved with a leveling pet will reserve that pet's slot for future leveling pets.
  • When you see a shiny gold border around a pet anywhere in Rematch, it means that is a leveling pet.

So if you save teams for various tamers with the leveling pet loaded, when you return to those tamers later with a different leveling pet, it will load that new leveling pet in their saved places.

The Leveling Queue

In addition to the gold-bordered leveling slot, there is a leveling queue you can store any number of pets that you intend to level.

As soon as your current leveling pet reaches 25 (grats!), if there are any leveling pets waiting it will swap the top-most pet in the queue to the leveling slot.

From the gear button to the right of the leveling slot you can:

  • Sort the queue by level: Ascending (level 1 to 25), Descending (25 to 1) or Median (closest to level 10.5).
  • Create your own order by dragging pets around and inserting them between other pets, or by right-clicking a pet and choosing the move options.
  • Use the Auto Rotate option to move to a new pet in the queue after each successful pet battle.
  • Fill the queue from pets in the browser. For instance, search "21-24", filter for Rare and hit Fill to add 21-24 rare pets to the leveling queue.
  • Empty the queue. It will ask for confirmation before clearing the queue.
  • If you want to switch to another pet for one fight without changing the order, double-click the pet in the queue. You can drag it to the leveling slot or right-click the pet and choose Start Leveling.
  • If the current leveling pet is loaded, you can navigate around the queue with previous/next buttons when you mouseover the leveling pet.

Sharing Teams

There are two ways to share battle pet teams when you right-click it in the Teams tab:

Send will send a team to someone online on your faction.

  • When a user receives a team that you Send, they'll receive a popup displaying the team with the option to save it. If they're in combat or they have another team waiting (or a similar dialog up) it will inform you that they're busy and you should try again later.
  • To send a team cross-realm, include their name, such as Gello-Hyjal.
  • In options you can choose to block incoming pets if you'd like.

Export will create a WeakAuras-like text string that you can copy to the clipboard.

  • You can paste the team anywhere else: in an email, on forums, in a text file, etc.
  • Any other Rematch user can use this string to Import the same team. The Import button is in the bottomright of the main window.

If you receive or import a team that includes pets you don't have, that's fine. They'll be greyed out and only the pets you have will attempt to load. You can keep the team as is for the day when you get the pet, or you can choose to save over it if you find a suitable substitute for the missing pet.

Note: Battle.net and RealID are not totally supported yet. At present there's a test mode you can try if you'd like. If both you and your battle.net friend have the option enabled, it will attempt to send via the team via battle.net.

Also, there's a known issue with the first Send sometimes failing if you haven't been in direct /whispers with a far-away/cross-realm player. If a recipient fails to receive a team the first time you've tried, try again. It should work for the rest of the session.

Other Addons

A major goal with this addon was to make it behave well regardless of what other battle pet addons you're using.

In some cases, it even takes advantage of the awesome addons others have created. For instance:

  • If you have the addon Battle Pet Breed ID enabled, pets will display breed information. If you click a pet and mouseover its stats, you can see all possible breeds for the pet.
  • If you have the addon Pet Battle Teams enabled, there will be a button at the end of options to import your teams from PBT.
  • If you choose to continue using PBT alongside Rematch (many do!), make sure you lock your PBT teams or auto save in PBT is disabled. The default behavior of PBT is to change the pets in your currently-selected team to whatever is loaded.
  • If you have a Broker infobar addon, it will create a button on your bars to toggle Rematch.

    The notes feature is great. Not having to have a printed guide of 6 pages to flip through, an instead haveing just what i need for that fight right on the screen. Awesome the only problem is that with it having to be attached to the rematch window it takes up alot of screen room. I need the notes open. I don't need the rest of rematch open in battle. Is there a way to seperate the two?

  • #212

    That's the current focus.  I had expected to have it done by now but what I came up this week just didn't "fit" the rest of the addon, aesthetically or mechanically.  So I tore it all out and started over again.

    Fortunately I'm very happy with how it's shaping up now.  It's an independant resizable window you can park anywhere on the screen and it looks/behaves very much like the pet/team cards.

    Mouseover of a notes button by a team name will show the window as a tooltip in a static part of the screen.  Click the notes button to "lock" it (wooden frame around it) so you can move it.  The lower-right "screw" is replaced with a resize grip to resize the window, and you can click into the notes to edit them while they're on screen.

    The default behavior is ESC closes the notes just like the other cards, but that can be turned off with "Disable ESC for notes" option.  If notes are up when a battle starts they'll stay up, and if "Show notes in battle" is checked they'll pop up in that chosen location without the main window.

    Cool can't wait no more messing with paper lol

    Something weird happened to my teams when I went to use them today.  The first thing I noticed is that my leveling queue was empty.  The second is that the particular pets within teams were not correct.  Many were now of the wrong breed.  In other situations, the same pet appeared in two teams where previously two different level 25's of that pet each had there own team.  For example, I use two different Pandaren Water Spirits and two different Pet Bomblings in my teams for the Celestial Hatchlings; The same Pet Bombling is now in both teams which doesn't work so well.

    I had to go through and fix all of them when I first imported the teams from PetBattleTeams but I figured that was a one time thing from the importation and/or the guid change.  If Rematch, though, does occasionally do some kind of "rebuild teams" thing and it loses specificity over the exactly which instance of "Something something Hatchling" you had in a team, then that is a major bug.

  • #208

    On a possible related note, when you overwrite a team where you made a change to breed or specific pet instance it doesn't highlight what was changed the way it does with two completely different pets.

  • #210

    Yeah it's intentional that if the pets are similar enough (same species), it saves without confirmation.  Even changing abilities and saving will skip the confirmation step. There are complaints that the addon requires too much clicking to save teams.

  • #207

    Your petIDs got changed on the server level.  I don't know how often this happens.  It's never happened to me but I've seen enough reports to know it's not that rare.

    Addons don't know when it's going to happen.  The best they can do is pick up the pieces afterwards.  It sounds like Rematch didn't do a good enough job when yours reset.

    Every team includes the species of each pet on the team. When it has to rebuild teams it picks the highest level/rarity available from each species.  This means it's a roll of the dice which breed it picks if you have multiple max level/rarity pets of different breeds.  And of course if you have one bombling on two consecutive teams it will likely use the same bombling for both.

    A future update (probably not this week, but we'll see) will note more specific information about each pet on the teams.  This will help with the specific breeds.  But it won't help with situations where you have an H/H bombing in two teams and want one of them to be different for consecutive tamers.

    Sucks that blizz changes the petIDs out from under you like that.

    Getting the breed right is definately the bigger issue of the two since sometimes a strat hangs on having exactly the right one. Who knows how often they'll do minor patches in the next couple of months - we could hit this a lot.

    In addition to saving off the breed, might I also suggest saving off custom pet names whenever the user has set one on a pet in a team.  Those could then be used as tie breaker.

  • #205

    I have one team named "Level" and an other "Low level". When ever I change one the other chenges too. What do I do wrong?

  • #201

    yea would definitly love it if it had say a big mode, medium mode, small mode ect. something like that and would really love a mass import so if say someone had a huge list of pets from a guide for say celestial tourney would import the whole set! anyway, super work, awesome addon. Gone from not knowing about this addon to cant do pet battles with out it in a very short time.

    Mass export/import is definitely on the to-do list.

    One thing about a mass import is it shouldn't blindly overwrite any teams you have saved already with the same name.  When you do it for a single team it goes through a confirmation process that would get tedious for many teams.  But it's not an insurmountable problem.  I'll be looking into it again relatively soon.

  • #200

    Minor problem that seems to happen quite regularly for me. I have "ascending" and "auto-rotate" checked for my leveling queue. When I beat a trainer, it typically goes to the next lowest level pet in the queue as I prefer to keep my leveling pets around the same level. However, i'd say about 20% of the time I get an error saying "The current leveling pet is in battle and can't be swapped.". I feel the addon may be trying to swap pets slightly too soon after a fight has ended, depending on lag it fails sometimes.

    Keep up the good work! Love the new notes feature.

  • #202

    Thanks for the report.  I'll have a fix in an update later this week.

  • #199

    This is such a high quality work. It is everything I dreamt of while I was using a lesser pet team addon. Being able to set notes, autoload teams, great looking interface. You deserve a job at Blizzard's UI team. Would gladly donate for this addon, do you have a donation page?

  • #203

    No donations page, sorry!  But the offer is appreciated
