Servers packed, yet can't find anyone to group with for flashpoints?

By your amazing logic, they might as well just remove the ability to group all together unless you're inviting friends or guildies right?

are you a tank?

If you are, you should be able to perma run instances all day long, if not...welcome to mmos without dual spec.

there are ALOT of premade guilds in the game already. most wouldn't need to pug a group.

Great, guess the game will be dead pretty soon then because the majority of people don't even bother joining guilds.

Good plan.

I don't get why they even made the premade guilds , most of them will be a joke anyway.

I do expect this kind of crap from a very old MMO but not from a new one.

Been asking in general chat for 30 minutes now and not a single group was being formed in that time for a simple lvl 25 instance (mandalorian raiders). I mean if it's like this with servers being full what will happen later on the road?

And what is going on exactly? Really losing interest and so early on too. Feels more like a sp game with mp chat than an actual MMO.
Well i gues it's not that groups aren't forming.
People just going to FP with friends and guildmates.
Try to join one, it should help a lot.
On the other hand most people run those instances once or twice and get back to questing and story.

You are of course wrong. Majority of people ARE in guilds. Who cares about soloists ?

Every guild officer should care about soloist, they are potential valuable members for their guild... Seriously, this is a Massively Multiplayer game. How selfish people are becoming is just horrible... Like in real life... Really sad.

Unlike some people, I think the "premade" guilds was a great idea when you get 200 servers running and you want to be able to stick with your friends... Without this kind of stuff, you sometime not be able to play with them... Which is really, really frustrating.

In any case, there IS a problem around the instances and the people available to go through the missions. They forgot to put some "dungeon team builder" (WOW like). And I Think they are keeping population under some levels just to make sure there is people on every server they opened, but I find this amount really low compared to the beta test.

Don't know why. Hope this will change in the future, the next days untill new year are critical.

Not sure where your getting that there are no groups for flashpoints.

Im currently lvl 44. And i've done every single flashpoint up to that lvl with the exception of *colicoid war game* can't even get past the first boss. Each time i wanted a flashpoint i did a /who of people around my lvl asked a few if they wanted to come. Majority were more then happy to do a FP for gear and something to break up the lvling process. Since i lvled purely as a Healer hardest slot to fill was tank.

As for missing messages etc, completely agree with you there are a few who got back to me whilst i was inside with the group saying they had missed the msg because of excessive msgs from *companions/general chat* There is too much clutter and it would be nice to cut down on it to read messages easier.

Think what i wanna say is. If you are actually look you will find can't expect everything to be handed to you on a silver platter this is not WoW.
