Bossmods made PvE easy by letting you know what was happening in the fight that you needed to be aware of. Why couldn't a mod do somewhat the same thing for PvP?
What I'm thinking of is a mod that will pop up with announcements and perhaps graphics in a positionable frame (or, I guess, in SCT/Parrot/MSB/FCT etc) that let you know when people are casting noteworthy spells on you or you're afflicted by noteworthy debuffs.
For example, "Mana Burn!" when you've been mana burned, "Viper Sting!" when it's on you, "Kidney Shot!", "Intercept Stun!", "Blind!", "Cyclone!", "Entrapment!" and other stuns and immobilizing things, "Wing Clip!", "Hamstring!", "Frost Bolt!" and the like, and "Silence!", "Counterspelled - Nature!" and other interrupt spells.
I always have a problem keeping track of these kinds of things in PvP, so a mod like this would help me out a lot. Or perhaps there's something that does this already that someone might point me towards? :)
MikSBT has always worked better than Parrot for me. And I wouldn't think of trying to survive through attempting to use the Rock config for a combat text addon, even if Parrot had anything worthy over MikSBT.
