A large number of fights in the game have a mechanic of:
Boss casts "Huge Spell of Death that Must be Interrupted"
Some/Any group member must interrupt it or someone (possibly multiple ppl) dies.
It would be really nice if LibFail had the ability to report the failure to interrupt, which is often just as important a fight mechanic as moving out of fire. The obvious problem is the person who died is often not the one who messed up, and we don't have enough information within the addon to correctly assign "blame" for the missed interrupt (because the interrupt assignment is done in vent or party chat and does not show up in the combat log). However despite this limitation I think it would still be useful for LibFail to report that a death was directly due to someone failing at fight mechanics (and not eg lack of heals). I'm imagining a fail like:
Someone failed at interrupting [Huge Spell of Death that Must be Interrupted], which hit JohhnyInnocent.
Where "Someone" is a generic "we don't know who to blame" string, and the player name at the end is optional and just indicates who died as a result. It probably makes sense to omit these fails from the fail stats, or possibly we could create a dummy "Someone" player to hold them.
Some motivating examples:
Nefarion phase 2 Blast Nova
Maloriak Arcane Storm
Rajh Inferno Leap
High Priestess Azil Force Grip
many many others..
I volunteer to implement this idea if it's popular
