Why are people against a LFG Tool

I don't understand the argument. A LFG tool would not be any less social than how things are now.

The argument, is that it prevents people from having to talk with one another to form their groups, and once the group is made, if you like them, you add them to your friends list.

This is reasonable, but if you take a LFG Tool, that is server side only, your point is mute.


Spamming LF HEALER FOR SUCH AND SUCH FP in General is not being social, and once they respond: I'll do your instance, invite me~

Guess what? That's exactly what the tool does, without the General Spamming, without the sitting in the Space Station doing nothing, but watching General Chat Spam waiting for that special some one who's paying attention, and it saves General Chat for people who actually want to use it.

Please stop saying this is a bad idea. The opinion that it takes away from the social aspect of the game, is bad.

The tool isn't needed, however a server wide LFG chat would be nice.

Because there already is a LFG tool!
Pro-Addon, but also Pro-regulation. Working to keep addons that do more harm than good out of the game.

Go play wow a few weeks and you know why it is a bad idea to implement such a tool. Vanila wow --> best MMO ever (together with ultima), WOTLK wow ---> worst MMO ever.

Your response doesn't make sense. Why would you prefer a server-wide LFG channel that get's spammed 24/7 versus a neat and tidy tool that saves you the effort?

I want a good reason why a LFG tool -takes away- from the game.

Hope you brought a book and/or packed a lunch. You're going to be here a while.

The tool is terrible.

But, I guess anytime some one suggests improvements, they warrant such responses as: You suck. It works fine. Go back to your other MMO. If you don't like it stop playing. Everything is perfect the way it is. We don't need suggestions. We don't need improvements. Your idea that an improvement should be recommended is an insult on this game. You're just a baddie.

That's how progression happens, right?

The LFD tool in WoW is a huge success that millions of players love, so that's not going to help your case.
