This game needs a LFG tool desperately!

I have so many Heroic quests that I cannot do because there only seems to be like 80 people on this planet at any one time and most of them do their own thing. The ones that want to group never seem to be doing things at the same time as you and because of the travel time it's such an effort to get people together.

It wouldn't be so bad if there was a LFG chat as standard but instead everyone is spamming General which becomes really annoying. Also there is only a 25 quest limit, why not put heroic quests on their own thing so they do not count? A lot of the time I have to do other things while I'm waiting for a group and I cannot take quests unless I drop one of the heroics. The thing is I cannot remember when I got each quest from and as they're repeatable I wouldn't know if I have done it already.

LFG tools have become standard in MMOs now and they make grouping so much more fun. You can all get in a group and instantly warp to the location that you want to do the quests in. It would allow people to just effortlessly get into a group without having to ask a hundred times on chat and wait for an hour.

It doesn't help that people are instanced over a few different planets either. Not having this tool though is really making playing this game hard work and I'm not having fun trying to complete heroic stuff. I don't know if I'm playing the game wrong but my Sith Assassin seems to struggle with even heroic 2+ with my pets. I'm not using the droid you get because he repeats the same thing about wanting to please me over and over and the other mutant guy lacks a good tank.

Any ways, LFG tool please!

Edit: Btw I mean a proper one like how WoW does it, not what is in the game currently.

Better idea:
  • No LFG Tool.
  • Impliment a Global LFG Channel players can opt out and rejoin on a whim.
Best of both worlds.

Why no? It's amazing and made grouping fun in MMOs and there is no downside what so ever.

Cross realm would be so amazing like a year into the games life when all the planets but the end level ones are dead.

This and only this should be listened to. The reason why we all don't want a LFG system exactly like WoW's is because that is what really was the catalyst for LOTS of people leaving WoW. The servers no longer actually needed a community and most of the people you get paired up with don't even have a clue what they are doing. The only reason I could even think as to why any of you people asking for this really want it is because you have never played a MMO without it and therefore do not understand how close the community of a server can become without one.

As for you not being able to do certain things because there are no people, I have two answers to that:

1. You have out-leveled everyone else and there are not enough people where you are (yet). Give it time and there will eventually be people there with you.

2. You play at really odd hours for your server which would basically make sure no one is on when you are. Only remedy for this is to try and play at more regular hours.

P.S. Bioware, please do not ever, ever, EVER implement a LFG system. A LFG chat channel that spans the whole galaxy is ok as long as we have the option to enter and leave it at will.

It is better to ask your friends in a guild for a help.

LFG tools are the doom of MMo's, it takes away the social interaction.
It takes the fun out of a game, and traveling around ^^

I support this idea. Better team forming tool will make getting into a Flashpoint group much easier. The OP brought it up but let me emphasize it. The tool should be accessible to all players on the same server, regardless of location or instance.

I don't know why WoW is brought up all the time. The way things are now, just guys yelling randomly over General chat while wasting away on the fleet station, is no community at all. If you want to be form a group of FP friends or do it with your guild mates and not make use of the system, fine. Why should the rest of us suffer the lack of a basic service because of it?
