Allow us to disable addon auto-update
Since latest app update it's forcing automatic addon updates. Please give us control over this process so we could disable auto updates.
The 4.8.21 update on 12/10/19 broke my sniping ability. This would not happen if it didn't auto update. Now I have to chose between out of date database information and the ability to snipe. 4.8.20 works fine. 4.8.21 does not provide results on sniper and gives LUA error.
IMHO, automatically updating an Addon while WoW is running, is just a bad idea, because you have to restart the game. Which is sometimes simply not possible.
Of course, people complaining about errors already fixed in the current version is a serious PITA, so why not checking whether WoW.exe is running and auto-update the addon when WoW.exe is _not_ running only?
As a side note: I am happy that my subscription expired, so I don't have this problem ATM. Frankly I am considering to re-sub but to create a second account for the desktop app only.
I'm multiboxing. It is a hugfe pain to "restart wow" on multiple accounts, just because an addon decides to update without asking to do so...
Please fix this ASAP.
4.8 broke account sync. Restoring the old version makes it work, but the desktop app over writes it. Please stop the auto-update. Give us a notification to go download and install it instead.
Seconded! Clients should be able to control when the applications they use are updated locally.
Prime example: I was in a PvP match when the TSM app was updated. Suddenly, every other second it would pop an error on the screen, and nothing would make it go away! I couldn't logout to reset or turn off TSM, and it completely interfered with my gameplay.
Forcing updates with no client-control violates ethical programming practices, and opens you up to potential legal liabilities.
