Group Finder Lockout

The reason you were assigned the wrong role is because you play a class that can spec to more than one role, e.g. Sage/Sorcerer, Powertech/Vanguard, Scoundrel/Operative, etc. You are asking Bioware to code group finder so that it can somehow "read" your skill tree and determine your role. What would be easier is to simply check your desired role(s) and uncheck the undesired ones on the group finder window.

Not to mention I know there is at least a couple hybrid tank builds that work really well for certain tanks, I would not want group finder defining those as dps.

Personally I want to be able to pick. For a PUG I would never do it, but my shadow is so woefully overgeared for HMFPs that I sometime query as a tank for guild runs. My three oldest 50s are scoundrel, operative and shadow and I have never entered a fp wrong, because I check before I enter group finder. It is not difficult.

Sorry, but not true. Each time I start the group finder I deselect DPS. But twice I have been placed in a group as DPS. What you describe is how it should work. But in reality it makes mistakes. I'm not asking it to read my skill tree. I am asking it to honor my choices.

There is a bug or glitch that selects you for all roles your class can play regardless of your actual selections (only dps only tank only heal w/e). It doesn't happen often (at least not to me) but it does happen. The solution that people don't seem to like is to CHECK what you have been selected as before accepting the FP, if it shows you as heals when all you can do is dps just cancel and requeue. It takes all of 2 seconds (if that) to double check and saves a TON of frustration and time later.
