SWTOR is easy mode. It doesn't take any skill to get to 50.

Is any of the OP content harder than Raid content in WoW? Judging by the rate that guilds are blowing through the OPs it doesn't look like it.

What I want are tools to save time when I log in and want to do FPs.

Also OP clearly specified his issue, he waited all day for group and even when he got one the tank left at last boss and they were back to square one. He did take initiative to put together a group.

There is absolutely nothing big in putting together a group in 2 hours. It is just waste of time. And just because you dont agree with people who want LFD tool, doesn't mean they should quit the game.




What has easy mode to do with putting together a group. It is a convenience which saves time. And do you really think TOR raids and content is difficult than WOW or any other game!
I'm in the same boat as far as playtime. I made friends levelling up, now we group and do HMs together. I guess I'm just weird like that, getting to know people, adding them to friends lists, things of that nature.

I know WoW eliminated the need for spending time getting to know people, but try it.

I don't think they should quit the game because they want a LFD tool and cannot for the life of them find decent people to do HMs with, I want them to stay - make friends, socialize, get groups going. Or, do non HM stuff, dailies, things like that.

I guess what I'm saying is WoW created an army of undulating masses that want to experience all content, no matter the time investment, social aspects, or more recently skill.

I come from EQ, where your reputation on a server was actually important, and you were required to get along with people to even "see" end game stuff.

TLR, you a commie? (:

My friend everyone had different Idea of "Fun" in a a game. Not everyone wants to take initiative in making random people friends just like that.
For example -
I don't mind making friends. If I meet someone nice I will like to run with them again but still I prefer my guildies for community. My idea of fun is kill content and raid.

So I really don't need to go out of way and spend my time which I should be spending doing content.

Also my question is whats wrong with a person if they want to experience content with less time involved. Isnt content meant to be experienced. Why a person who is new to mmo scene or is not a great player should go through hardships or should not be allowed to experience content. He is pay as much money as others and has full right to enjoy the game the way he likes. Creating options for casual players is not bad.

I am a hard core raider and raiding is what I like but at the same time I do support the casual gamers and I think they have every right to enjoy the game they feel like.

Also I hope you know that LFD tool is option right. You are free to use the traditional method of putting together a group. No one will stop you.

If you want hard mode have fun with server merges - or go and play Eve or Vanguard.

Like it or not, if SW wants to keep afloat it can't do it with only the hardcore. If you were to take everyone that has a 50 right now that wouldn't be enough to sustain the investment put into the game. I wouldn't call everyone who's currently 50 hardcore either.

Welcome to 2012.

Hey, some of us have RL to deal with and don't want to spend the 3 hours we get to occasionally play wasting time "getting to know" people in this game just so we can experience all the content. If you don't like the LFG idea, you don't ever have to friggin touch it. Doesn't mean the rest of us should have to sit around on our thumbs, spamming general chat on the Fleet to try and run one lousy FP, because YOU don't like the idea. Some of us don't need this to be a job or where we get our primary social interaction. Shocking I know.
Just because I do not care, does not mean I do not understand.

+1 for a dungeon finder. Normal mode ops are a far FAR more efficient way to get Columi gear (and far easier to PUG than hardmode FPs), but to get in on them you need to be part of the local uberguild. It's damn near impossible to find a PUG to do normal mode ops by spamming general since 95% of people seem to be convinced the best way to gear up is smash your head against some of the horribly overtuned Hardmode FPs and hope you get the one purple you need from the end boss every day.

There is a need for a decent LFG tool, the LFG comments are a waste of time. The nature of the tool on the other hand is a big question.

I've done the hardcore stuff. I played EQ1 and got an epic for my wiz before Luclin was released. There were no flight paths. Ppl did corpse runs. Ppl have no idea what a raid is until you've been in a raid wipe with the leader screaming and the healers trying to log so you don't have to run naked back.

WoW was less hardcore but the 40 mans were still intense.

It's great fun. But all that stuff takes a ton of RL time. If your trying to work a RL job and spend time with your wife and kids while trying to do endgame content you either need very little sleep or your ignoring your RL responsibilities. That's why I have no intention of joining a guild because eventually you get sucked in spending too much time raiding and end up quitting.

So give us a tool so the rest of us with less free time can enjoy our MMO fix.
