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.

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 15 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.
  • Searches in the team searchbox will look for matches in team names, team notes and any pet names.

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.

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.

Future Plans

With Warlords of Draenor going live, my addon-writing time will have to compete with my WoW-playing time, but there are still plans for this addon. They're loosely grouped into three priorities:

Short term:

  • Set a minimum health and maximum xp for teams with a leveling pet. So that teams will pull a different pet from the queue (if any available) when the current leveling pet doesn't meet the criterea.
  • Support multiple leveling pets. When saving a team any pet in the queue will mark the slot as a leveling slot. When loading a team with multiple leveling pets it will pull as many pets as needed.
  • Look for multiple sources for breed data.

Mid term:

  • Custom sorting: by power, speed, favorites mixed with rest, reverse sort, etc.
  • An alternate view of current pets that stacks them vertically.
  • Pet Treat, Lesser Pet Treat and Safari Hat buttons in the alternate view, with cooldown spinners on the treats to tell how much time is left on the buff.
  • Mass Export/Import of teams.
  • Some alternate method of tagging pets. A "second" favorites at least.

Long term:

  • Allow the window to be resized horizontally the way it can be resized vertically now.
  • Rework the pet card to get more information on the card, such as breeds owned.
  • Understudy pet slot on the pet card for loading an alternate pet if that pet is dead or injured.
  • Possibly some method of choosing alternate teams if the saved team has dead or injured pets.
  • Re-evaluate UI. The small square buttons could afford to be wider.

- 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.

    Any chance there is a plan in the works for an option to resize the team frame smaller? I have the larger frames option unchecked but the team frame is a bit larger then I'd prefer. I know its listed theres a plan long term to allow the selection window to drag horizontal as well as the current vertical. So I thought I'd add this suggestion / request in to the mix.

  • #258

    I'll keep it in consideration when making it stretch horizontally.

  • #254

    Thanks for fixing that bug in the last comment!

    Is there any way you can lock the rematch screen to the pet tab, or make it open when you open it? if not, any plans to implement it? Kinda miss that from PetBattleTeams :p

    Rematch is a stand-alone pet journal alternative. It's meant to be used instead of the pet journal.

    edit: I'll think on integration a bit.  But the addon is honestly meant to be used instead of the journal.

    I never actually thought of using it in place of the pet journal (for some reason), I guess it was just handy having all the collection tabs in one window with one keybind. Been using it in place of it for past 2 days though so np!

    I actually use PetTracker which shows breeds only in the pet journal, may be why

    When I go to the built-in pet journal and filter on text (e.g. "spirit" or "panda") and then put one of those pets in a cage or release them, the list updates but the filter isn't re-applied. I thought this was a Blizzard bug, but the problem goes away when I disable Rematch. No Lua errors that I could see. Could you have a look?

  • #253

    I'll have a look.  Thanks for spelling out the steps to do it.  I think this was being reported over on wowinterface and I didn't understand what was meant.

    edit: this should be fixed in 3.1.7 posted tonight.

    Breeds

    From looking through the addon description it seems like I need another addon to be able to see pet breeds. Is this correct and if so, is there any plan to include it in Rematch in the future?

  • #249

    At the moment that is correct.  Simca's Battle Pet BreedID is probably the gold standard for breed data but I'm open to supporting more.

    Breed is not something the game exposes to addons.  The community has reverse-engineered the stats of all pets to come up with the seeds that form a pet's pseudo-random stats in the form of breeds.  This requires huge tables that need to be updated for every new pet added to the game (and then updated again for every new breed encountered).

    It's an enormous task I happily leave in others' hands until Blizzard exposes a little more info to determine breeds or seed or whatever equivalent that can be inferred.

    That said, it wouldn't be difficult to support more than one source for breeds.  But I really don't want to embed those massive tables for the sake of convenience when some users are fine without it.

    Ah, I wasn't aware that it was that labor intensive and that Blizz keeps it from addons by default. I'll just install your suggested addon then.

    Thanks for the great addon btw, it's has become one of my absolute need-to-have addons.

    I lost my pet teams. :(

    A couple weeks ago all my pet teams disappeared. I had about 40 and my enthusiasm is waning with all the extra research I need to do.

    I have Time Machine (I'm on a Mac) so I could search for the right file and restore it, if that's the problem. Could you tell me the file/s and where it/they go? In case you don't work on Macs, don't worry. The WoW folders work the same for the most part.

    And thanks for a fabulous addon! I thought I liked it, but it wasn't until I lost its functionality that I realized it was actually love.

  • #246

    I hope you get them back.  The file to restore would be at:

    World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\YourAccountName\SavedVariables\Rematch.lua

  • #251

    Was going to ask where I could find the file with my teams to copy/paste between my laptop and desktop. Willsee if this works.

  • #247

    Thank you so much! I am kinda scared to mess with those files because I am a wimp, but this was exactly the answer I needed. Worked perfectly and took less than 30 seconds to fix the problem.

    Again, LOVE the addon, and grateful for help!

  • #242

    Possible to have same team for multiple bosses? (fbeasts of fable) Or do i just need to copy paste same team over and over
