It does make you wonder...how hard is it to implement?

They knew about the need for Group Finder pretty much since Jan (thats when i joined, maybe before then even!). And then I guess they discussed whether itll be Cross-Server or not, and decided with Server-only after the large boost of population after server transfers and the increased server caps.

They were clearly shocked about the lack of the Ready Check in the Guild Summit waaay back then. I guess they just dont consider it a massive priority since we can manage without, but surely it shouldn't take this much time. Hell it better be in 1.4 :P

I never knew MoX Desktop Parser had one (Assumign thats what youre talking about), I guess I'll have to have a look at that.
At the moment, we can usually just tell when someone's not ready, but for amusement we've started our own ready check of everyone dancing :P And if anyone uses a disco-ball or anything to get people dancing without them pressing /dance, they get slapped! (Not really, but we tell them to stop ^^)

yes, they do its when you pop out the window and right click on the window and readycheck ison there. but you have to be leader. also i know they give us LFG but yet not a ready check, ITS NEEDED< we cant not be doing these ghetto ready checks anymore , what we do is ask everyone to mount up if they are ready, but even that is stressful, how hard is it to add "are you ready? <yes> <no>"

I guess i am old, but i always thought the ready checks in WoW were an annoying eye sore, that i felt like wasnt needed. I ran raids in eq1, and eq2 for years without and them and did fine... just required people to state they were back from afk, or say, "hey, i need a second before pull".

well, in raids after we are done talking about what went wrong, (assuming you raid) its stupid to keeping yelling, are you ready? , or to just dive in. you cannot assume everyone is ready, or type, most people will go AFK

also, i've been raiding in WoW since 40man raids. trust me even in 8mans we need ready checks.

If someone cant say hey i am going AFK before they afk, i rather not have them in the raid, since it is obvious they lack basic communication skills.

Where is our...

MINI GAMES?
*Pod-racing
*Pazaak
*Sabaak

ETC
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WORLD PvP!?
*Take Warhammer's Castle-Siege PvP system. Who cares? It's under EA games too...

*Give us an incentive to go and stay/camp at the Outlaw's Den...

*Give us some kind of fortress for a faction to capture that'll give us a server buff or something...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BW could be doing a million things right now. Sure I may not be a game developer and making the job sound easy..... but seriously Bioware, you have EA's resources. Do you even have resources anymore? I'm not even sure if it takes resources to implement mini-things, in-game hobbies, or complex incentives for world PvP into your MMO.

Just put some stuff for us to do! It doesnt have to be premium content! O_ o
