Because MANY people do NOT want the same system as other MMOs. The closest I can think of that might work is Rift's system, but even it still needs to be perfected and worked out and changed to work with TOR's system.

As long as it's NOT in player hands to decide, I'm fine with it.

I have the quest to go do Athiss. I'm lvl 23 almost 24. the only FPs it lets me select are Hammer station and Mandalorian raiders.
Until they fix the bug you cannot have the flashpoint mission in your logs. Drop the mission for Athiss and then you will be able to queue for it.

Some forum goers interests =/= interests of the general masses

The fact that millions more people are content to play a game that has it is evidence enough that they're happy with the way it works. Again it's just BioWare wasting time and resources on pointless solutions.

A very good idea, I wasn't even aware of the fleet shuttles until i got to around level 40. A nice big shiny icon indicating the shuttle would be great.

I cannot believe the Group finder doesn't cover Heroics. This means will will still seeing people over and over on each world LFM.

This really needs to be added. Its need just as bad as flashpoints.

An interest that is backed up by evidence from millions of other players.

Not all opinions are created equal, some hold more weight than others.

It's one person's opinion until you can back it up with fact.

Anyhoo, BioWare has the numbers.

Fact 10million+ people play WoW, it has gearscore.
Fact: 1million+ people play SWTOR, it doesn't have gearscore.

Obviously GS isn't the only reason they play WoW but it's one of the contributing factors, if BioWare want this game to do well then they should learn from the experts, rather than repeating history.

Anyway this is getting really off topic now, so yeah, how about that groupfinder...
