What is the point of a group finder on a near dead server, I would not have bothered bringing it up in the podcast...
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix

Exactly. This all is canned, David Bass said the exact same things on the other podcast a few days ago. Great idea, but talk about the real issues. If you don't talk about the issues it will just be negative publicity with all of the forum/youtube post rage.

Is that why the PTS is hardly used and the player feedback is largely ignored?
1. Nice job nitpicking.
2. We don't know this, maybe or maybe not when it comes to player feedback. Do they have to respnd "We'll implement this immediately! Thanks for your perfect opinion player person!" to every idea? They have a podcast and a Q&A as a main way to see interaction with the community, do we have to see Bioware yellow text on every thread that predicts the doom of the game anyway? They may or may not, you don't know and I don't know, and people do use the PTS. And if they are lowly populated, how is Bioware going to get feedback in the first place?
Damn the fool who said history doesn't repeat itself, he clearly was not talking about MMOS.

It's nitpicking because you don't agree. The family tree is fluff, and even as a roleplayer--which was supposedly the group being targeted with the family tree--the feature is worthless to me; I can't share it with anyone. It's about as useful as writing my family tree down on a napkin.

Good thing they put today's patch on the PTS to get feedback right?

BioWare could you please make the group finder also looking for people who like to group for a world boss (the podcast wasn't clear if that might be possible).
